We decided to stay in a hotel “Les Balcons d’Anaite” in les Houches, a village that is located 10 min drive from Chamonix. It is a very peaceful place and less expensive in terms of accommodation than its fashionable neighbor. Unfortunately, it was rainy outside but we were determined to discover the Alpes and rented
bikes for a day. Exciting journey started in the site de Balme. In the evening we decided to taste local cuisine in the restaurant “Crémerie du Glacier d’Argentière” that you will never find without a GPS. They have a very good choice of fondu, all sorts of ham and cheese and a tasty blueberry tart.
