About the property

Les Houches, Chamonix Valley. 2 minute walk to amenities and ski lifts.

This chalet is a rare find in a privileged position.

One of only a handful of properties in the Chamonix Valley where you can ski back to the door but still have the convenience of the cable car, chair lift , restaurants, shops and bars only a 200m level walk away. You are not stuck up a mountain with no nearby facilities with this chalet.

Being located in Les Houches on the famous Kandahar run of the World Cup Ski Circuit makes this property ideal for ski holidays.

In summer, climbers of Mont Blanc and walkers of the Tour de Montblanc will find this is the perfect base camp with the access point for both only 200m away.

Or simply relax and enjoy the fabulous panorama of the Mont-Blanc chain from the large terrace or hot tub.

This chalet is great value. It is comfortable and cosy, traditionally decorated but without compromising on facilities and space.

There is a large lounge and dining area with open log fire and panoramic views of the Mont Blanc Chain. The kitchen is well equipped with a large oven, double sink, large fridge-freezer and dishwasher.

The chalet is surrounded on 3 sides by a large private balcony area where the hot tub is found, giving fabulous mountain views as you relax and unwind after a busy day skiing, hiking or sightseeing.

There are 3 good sized bedrooms each with its own bath/shower room and access to a balcony. Two of the 4 bedrooms have an ensuite shower room (with toilet and basin). The fourth bedroom has a private bathroom across the corridor with full sized bath and overhead shower (toilet and basin). Two of the bedrooms can be arranged as a kingsize or twin bed.

Parking for the property is in the free public car park next to the chalet building.

About Sarah Martin

In 2003, we left the UK behind to 'live the dream' in France. We used the chalet for our catered chalet business for several years, investing time and profits in improving it throughout . In 2008 we changed focus, and so now rent it out on a self catering basis.

Sarah Martin purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Sarah Martin chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc area

Location, location, location was the reason we bought this property.

Right on the piste but still only 200 metres from shops, bars restaurants. So you have the convenience of skiing back to the door without the inconvenience of being 'stuck' up the mountain.

The views of the Aiguille du Midi and surrounding mountains are stunning.

Les Houches is a lovely, quiet village but with vibrant Chamonix nearby, you get the best of both worlds. The year round trade was the icing on the cake!

What makes this chalet unique

Location - ski back; 2 minute walk to amenities, short drive to Chamonix; Italy and Switzerland nearby.

Hot tub with mountain views.

Outdoor heated pool in the summer.

Fantastic views from all the decking areas.

The décor is traditional and comfortable.

We strive to offer a convenient location and comfortable accommodation for a reasonable price, making a stay in this great property possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very well situated both for ease of access from Geneva and proximity to local facilities (short stroll to ski hire/lift, boulangerie, restaurants etc)
