alps areas

During our 7 weeks in France next June/ July we have 6 days to spend in the alps. Can't decide between the Chamonix area in France or the Lauterbrunnen area over the border in Switzerland.

We will be arriving in Geneva after catching a flight from Bordeuaux. After our time in the alps we go to Paris.

Any advice on which area to choose.? We want beautiful scenery with a chance to go up the mountains in the cable cars. I have been a bit a bit put off with Chamonix due to it's apparent " touristy nature" and some say the scenery is prettier in Switzerland.

Cheers

sonya
