Chamonix, in the Haute-Savoie département in the Rhône-Alpes, south-eastern France. Chamonix one of the oldest ski resorts in France. The north side is the summit of Mont Blanc; part of the village of Chamonix. South side is claimed by Italy. France considers the boundary places it entirely in French territory. The south side assigned to the commune of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains sharing the summit with its neighbor Chamonix. **Stunning! I'd definitely go again and again ;)
