Chamonix got its start in the Middle Ages as a priory and a small village. Through the years that followed, the locals set up a regular weekly market. By the 19th century, tourism in the area was increasing as people discovered the absolute natural beauty of the region. In 1924, the Winter Olympics were hosted in Chamonix, ensuring that people worldwide were aware of and interested in visiting Chamonix. Today, the entire economy of the area is firmly entrenched around tourism and more that 5 million tourists per year visit this charming valley in the French Alps.
The appeal of Chamonix to skiers, snowboarders, climbers, and other mountain sports fanatics cannot be overlooked. The fantastic world class ski slopes are hard to better at any other winter resort in the world. The town got its name from the Chamonix Valley in which it resides. If you're lucky, you'll be able to see the imposing snow-capped presence of Mont Blanc from your Chamonix hotel, the highest mountain in France and Western Europe. The hotels of Chamonix are busy year round with international visitors, there to enjoy the town and surrounding area's playground-like environment. You can visit Chamonix in the summer too, and go hiking. Hiking up to the Glacier des Bossons is highly recommended, but don't get too close to the glacier itself, just enjoy the unparalleled views instead.
Anybody in the hotel, catering, or tourism trades is likely to see Chamonix as a place for investment and not just recreation itself; something a personal visit will confirm as commerce here is usually booming.
