One week of concerts with a view on the Mont-Blanc

The 11th edition of the Cosmo Jazz Festival Chamonix will be held from 24 to 31 July. This event, which has been cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, was first held in 2010. The festival was created and orchestrated by André Manoukian, and each year welcomes international artists to the resort to share a human adventure with the public through the discovery of exceptional landscapes and cosmic sounds. All of this in a very friendly atmosphere! This year, jazz lovers have the opportunity to attend a dozen concerts. Kyle Eastwood Quintet, Brad Mehldau, Piers Faccini, Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp, David Walters, Emilie Parisien & Vincent Peirani, Laurent Bardainne & Tigre d'Eau Douce, Birds on wire, San Salvador, Léon Phal Quintet, Tournée des refuges, Sélène Saint-Aimé, André Manoukian... are among the many artists taking part in this musical event in the Alps.

When jazz is around... in the Chamonix Valley

The 2021 edition, still perched in the mountains, promises surprising musical moments as it takes place... at altitude! The event organisers have carefully chosen natural sites for their exceptional scenery and breath-taking panoramas. To listen to the music in the open air, the participants take the ski lifts. Once they are there, the show takes place both on stage and all around them.

One of MGM's favourite addresses is Les Houches in the Chamonix Valley. This village resort, in the heart of the Mont Blanc massif, attracts visitors and residents alike with its authentic Haute-Savoie character and human scale. Only 6 km from the world capital of skiing and mountaineering. It offers a wide range of activities, both in summer and winter. 55 km of pistes, 7,000 km of marked trails around lakes, glaciers, forests and pastures, the Merlet Park, Kid Adventure course... Les Houches has been given the "Famille Plus" label and is a holiday destination that delights all ages.

MGM has chosen this resort as the home of its Chalets Éléna tourist residence. This development, which is ideally located in the centre of the village, is recognisable by its architecture, which blends the wood of the region with exposed stone. This development has exceptional exposure and direct access to the Les Houches / Saint-Gervais ski area. Residents also benefit from a space specially dedicated to their well-being: heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, hammam, hot tubs, gym...
