I can’t tell you how excited I am about it’s opening:-)!!!
The temperatures get almost tropical at the hight of the summer, often well in to the 30s. We’ve been able to find some great places to cool down in the past, for example the Parc d’Losier Passey a municple lake for example, 15 minutes drive down the valley (also known as Piscine de Combloux).
Or closer to home at Les Aiglons , a few doors down from the flat where you can get a two coarse lunch and an open air swim (plus sauna and steam) with views of our favourite mountain for about 20Euros each.
Incidentally a rather funky video of said place (but no sight of pool) at this link.
But after several years in the making, Chamonix’s new swanky outdoor swimming pool area is open this summer. Boasting a multi-lane water slide, a children’s pool, leisure pool area and laned pool in an infinity pool style, Chamonix Leisure Centre is set to be THE place to be.
