Tre-le-Champ is a beautiful hamlet at the north-western end of the Chamonix Valley. It has a unique location sitting on a hillside with the valley towards Le Tour and the road towards Vallorcine on the other side. The hamlet is split into two parts: Tre-le-Champ-le-Haut and Tre-le-Champ-le-Bas, basically meaning the upper and lower parts of the hamlet.
Tre-le-Champ is a very rural hamlet consisting mostly of farm houses and chalets spread out over grassy pastures. It has one refuge and restaurant called the Auberge la Boerne located right at the heart of the hamlet near the wooden cross of Tre-le-Champ. On the trail from Les Frasserands you will come across a number of wooden totems on a hillside with a nice view over the valley. We would love to know who made them and why and if someone knows then please contact us. There is a smaller cross a little further down the trail from the Auberge la Boerne but this may be located on private property. We got a very nice discovery trail running from Argentiere to Le Planet, Montroc and Tre-le-Champ that we can highly recommend.
There is a parking area along the main road going up to Vallorcine very near to Tre-le-Champ-le-Haut. That is the best place to park if you wish to visit the hamlet. The train station of Montroc-le-Planet can be used if you want to reach it by train. There is also a bus stop in Montroc that you can use.
