Les Tines is a small hamlet located between Chamonix and Argentiere stretching from the Chamonix Golf course to end of the lower part of the Chamonix Valley. Les Tines is mostly a residential area and has no real commercial center or any shops. There are two hotels: The Residence Odalys Isatis along the main road going up the valley and the Excelsior Hotel, Restaurant & Spa. Les Tines has a very old Chapel with a fascinating history. It is definitely worth a visit. Les Tines has its own train station and a bus stop so getting to Les Tines is quite easy. 


Walking to Les Tines from Chamonix takes roughly one hour. You can also visit it as part of the Petite Balcon Sud or the Petit Balcon Nord. Right across the road from Les Tines, is the hamlet of Le Lavancher with one of our favorite trails going to Le Chapeau. The very pretty river Arve runs right next to Les Tines and an easy walk takes you to Paradis des Praz, a very popular playground with snack bar in a very beautiful location.
