How do I get there?

About Us

Located at the bottom of the Valley, the Lac des Gaillands, a few kilometers from Chamonix, is the ideal place for a short family walk offering a very beautiful view of the Mont-Blanc massif and the Bossons glacier.

Very close to the climbing wall, at the exit of the hamlet of Pècles, and the charming little lake of the Englishman which tells an astonishing story of an Englishman so in love with Chamonix that he decided, in 1886, to buy these plots.

Further information :
Ideal place to stroll facing Mont-Blanc with family or friends. Many activities are practicable such as climbing, tree climbing or fishing!
