About The Mountain Base Team

Mountain Base are a rentals company who offer a carefully selected portfolio of self-catering chalets and apartments in the Chamonix Valley. Operating since 2004, we are one of the few British run businesses in Chamonix to hold the Carte Professionnelle which obliges us to maintain a Garantie Financière (cash bond) to ensure all our clients are financially protected.

Our philosophy is simply excellent professionalism and service. From a speedy response to any questions through to a dedicated in-resort service, our team are at your disposal. Our office is in central Chamonix, so we are on hand to advise you throughout your stay and organise any little extras that you need.

Mountain Base's services include everything from pre-ordering lift passes through to arrangements for catering, equipment hire, ski lessons and activities such as husky sledging and paragliding.

What makes this chalet unique

This property provides the unique combination of space and location in Chamonix. Chalet Chintalaya is perfectly placed for the shops, bars and restaurants as well as for local transport links from the main bus station or the local train station. It is also just a short walk from key attractions such as the Aiguille du Midi and the Montenvers Train. When it comes to space, as well as having five en-suite bedrooms, the chalet has a separate sitting room, dining room, kitchen and TV room. The icing on the cake is the lovely private garden which offers a peaceful oasis with Mont Blanc views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

'Thanks for everything, the food, drinks and laughs. The views are stunning, hope to be back to hike the Vallee Blanche!'

Dale & Sue, August 2003

'Thanks for an absolutely wonderful time. I can honestly say that you managed to exceed our expectations in just about every respect. In particular, the aperitifs, food and wine is the best that I've encountered, however, what stood out for us was that nothing was too much trouble - you were all very willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your guests had a great time. Rest assured that we won't hesitate to recommend Alpine Hideaways and that all being well, we'll be back next year!

Tony & Sue, March 2004

'An amazing time and a fantastic chalet. I haven't felt this much at home since I left my parent's place'

Andrew, March 2004

'A fantastic place to stay - thank you very much indeed!'

Gorgeous chalet in Chamonix village

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Chintalaya is very central - 2 minutes walk to main village street and on the river. The house is well presented and had everything we needed. The biggest plus is that all 5 rooms have their own bathrooms ! We were very happy with the whole place plus Mountain Base who helped us from begining to the end of our trip. We would come back without a doubt !
