It held the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and is often considered the world capital for mountain sports. Its unique scenery includes the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice), the Vallee Blanche (White Valley) and the Aiguille du Midi. It is a great place for photo and movie productions such as James Bond's "The World Is Not Enough" (1999). Lac Blanc

It is connected to the French highway network through a 2x2 road, to Switzerland (Martigny) via the Montets pass and to Italy (Courmayeur) through the Mont Blanc tunnel (11.6 km). The closest airport is in Geneva, less than 1 hour drive away. Goods, production teams, photographic equipment and models can therefore be moved to and from Chamonix easily for photo productions.
