About the property

Beautiful chalet for six | Jacuzzi | Ski Lift & Town On Foot | Off-road parking

Chalet Minouche is a beautiful two-bedroom semi-detached chalet on the edge of Chamonix town centre. Both bedrooms have ensuite facilities and two more sleep on a sofa bed in the lower hallway.

The living area is open plan with a brand-new, fully-equipped kitchen with an American-style, island-table that seats six, a comfortable curved sofa to watch TV from, and huge glass doors that look up on to Mont Blanc and open out on to a large, covered wooden decking.

Downstairs a garage and a jacuzzi round off a unique Chamonix chalet that offers you access to both town and its facilities and the ski lifts on foot.

Great property with a wonderful open plan living area. Marvellous views and a real sun trap.

  • 5 of 5

The large comfortable living area was a lovely space relax in.

The covered balcony was great to sit in on a perfect February sunny day - in shorts with splendid views of Mont Blanc and the Aguille du Midi. It would afford good shade in Summer. The generous hot tub was a real hit with the whole family.

I couldn't praise the ski drop off and collect service enough. Great kit and all well fitting and delivered by a really pleasant chap.

Bob at Mont Blanc Retreats has been really helpful with our booking.

The location of the property is good as you are in Chamonix centre after a few minutes stroll on the level.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Minouche is ideally situated as it is within a few minutes walk of Chamonix centre whilst being very secluded and quiet. The listing description was borne out entirely by the reality, although the views were even more impressive from the balcony than the pictures convey!

The property was very clean and tidy and the regular linen change worked perfectly. The owners live next door ( the chalet is managed by a separate company) and they are really friendly and welcoming without in any way being intrusive.

We would certainly recommend Chalet Minouche for anyone who loves the mountains and the outdoor life. Parking is excellent and access to the Chamonix Valley couldn't be easier. The celebrated Chamonix micro brewery is a couple of minutes away, and a brilliant place to have a beer after a hard day in the hills.

We certainly hope to return!

a beautiful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice and the views are wonderful, it is also located near the center of Chamonix. The house is very well supplied, the only problema is the internet connection that doesn't work properly all the time.

Lovely property - drop dead gorgeous location.

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the property, the living area was huge and Bob couldn't have been more helpful.

The location was really impressive, very close to the centre (10 mins) but with views of Mt Blanc and surrounding mountains to wake us up each day. The hot tub and balcony were well used at the end of each day.

Excellent stay thanks.

Repeat Stay as so good last year.

  • 5 of 5

We love Chamonix and had another great 2 week stay in this lovely Chalet, Mont Blanc retreats mades sure it all ran smoothly and the Hot Tub was much welcome after a good hike or bike ride. So much to do in Chamonix that 2 weeks still not enough and this property is so convenient for an easy walk into town.

Fantastic Chalet - perfect for a week away

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious & well equipped Chalet for 4 people (2 couples). Stunning views of Mont Blanc & surrounding peaks with great sliding patio doors out onto balcony. Best view was waking up in the upstairs bedroom to the sun rising above the peaks! 5 minutes walk to town centre & all shops - perfect. Owners live next door - Chalet is actually semi-detached. Private drive & reasonably secluded but just off main valley road so easy to get to all resorts. Spotlessly clean - definitely wish to return at some time
