Brevent Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful views! We were lucky to get in cable car 🚠. Even tho there was beautiful, calm and sunny day in Chamonix there was a risk that we might not go on the top. Other cable car to Aiguille du Midi 3842m unfortunately was closed due to high and strong winds. And I am glad we come here, views were absolutely stunning! Make sure you take suitable cloths when you got to the top. Weather conditions are so much different. There is cafe/restaurant on top.
Great views make up for the rude service, long wait and average food. Expensive too but that’s expected given the location. Staff need a lesson in manners and hospitality.
Great views. Nice hikes. In summer you can walk 5t minutes with the kids so they can play in the snow
One of the best resorts in the world ... south facing so plenty of sun and aimed at the more advanced skier or boarder; accessible from the main Chamonix town its a great place to go.
Great mountain biking
