Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom apartment with terrace and small garden area

Le Brévent 2 is a ground floor appartment with dual aspect, offering stunning views of the Brévent mountains and along the valley towards Le Tour. It is located less than a minute from the Brevent-Plan Praz cable car and it is just a short walk down the hill to the facilities in Chamonix town centre. The property has been finished to a high standard offering a light, modern and relaxed feel throughout.

The entrance hall leads to an open plan living area with a modern kitchen, dining for 6 people and comfortable seating. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the master bedroom is flexible (double or twin) and the second is a twin room. The living area has sofa which converts to a double bed.

Amongst its very desirable features, it has the added bonus of a real fire (unusual for an apartment) for the perfect après ski ambience in winter and the Living Room opens onto a private patio garden and large secluded balcony for al fresco dining in the summer. The property is well equipped to include wifi, UK and French TV, utility facilities, parking and a ski locker.

Le Brevent 2 offers contemporary accommodation for up to 6 people in a desirable location. The building is situated in a quiet position yet close to all Chamonix's facilities making it a good choice for families or groups who have some members heading into the mountains and others exploring the town.

Skiing and snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts only, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.

Summer and the rest of the year: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb para gliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canoeing and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; a sports centre with an indoor and outdoor 50m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi... The list goes on!

Bonne appréciation, qqs détails à revoir

  • 3 of 5

Madame, Monsieur,

Les échanges pour la réservation mériteraient une traduction française.

L'accueil agréable et bien renseigné.

L'appartement était globalement propre à l'exception de la nappe qui nécessitait franchement un passage en machine. Chose que nous avons fait l'pm de notre arrivée.

J'ai déploré une batterie de casseroles inutilisables (le revêtement anti-adhésif était en miette et l'hygiène n'était du coup pas assurée).

Le lundi soir nous avons pu obtenir un petit fait tout et une mini casserole : insuffisant pour le cuisinier que je suis !

Enfin, malgré une boite d'ampoules et de spots disponible dans l'appartement, nous n'avons pas pu obtenir le remplacement d'un spot dans l'entrée.

Petits points d'amélioration : équiper l'appart d'une machine Nespresso svp

Bien cordialement

M. POMBART

Travelling around the Chamonix Valley

Although a car provides additional flexibility, Chamonix has a regular free in-valley bus service. Guests with either a “carte d’hote” or a ski pass can use the buses to move around the valley from Les Houches to Le Tour with stops at all the lift stations. There are also shuttle buses called “les Mulets” which are free and circulate the centre of town.

Getting to Chamonix by car

From France: accessible directly via the Autoroute Blanche (A40), which connects to the European motorway network.

Geneva Airport is approx 100km from Chamonix. Cost in tolls is about €6 for a normal car, all major credit cards are accepted 24/7. Don’t get money from the airport – Swiss Francs are not acceptable!

From Switzerland: Motorway to Martigny, then Col de la Forclaz, Col des Montets. Martigny is approximately 50km from Chamonix.

From Italy: Motorway to the Mont-Blanc tunnel near Courmayeur. Chamonix is 15km from the Italian border via Mont-Blanc Tunnel.

By Train

There is a SNCF railway station in Chamonix. It is serviced by the TER regional train. There are TGV high-speed mainline train connections from St Gervais-le Fayet railway station, just 20km away.

The Mont Blanc Express: This SNCF railway line serves all villages from St Gervais-le Fayet to Martigny (Switzerland) via Servoz, Les Houches, Chamonix, Argentière and Vallorcine.

By Bus/Mini Bus
