About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 6

A beautifully furnished, duplex, holiday apartment in Chamonix with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second and third floors of the village old library.

The property has a balcony that looks out over the main road and village square allowing you to watch village life go by whilst you relax after a day on the slopes.

About Mont Blanc Retreats

Mont Blanc Retreats is a British Rental agency specialising in high quality chalets and apartments in the Mont Blanc region.

A larger selection of our properties is found on our website.

Why Mont Blanc Retreats chose Argentière

The Old Library's central position in Argentiere village means your holiday needn't just be about the skiing. The convenience of shops, bars and restaurants right outside the front door mean this property is one of our most heavily booked, especially in winter.

Add in luxurious leather sofas, a high-tech media centre, two bathrooms, three bedrooms and a ski locker and the Old Library is a wonderful place to spend a holiday in the Chamonix valley.

What makes this apartment unique

Mont Blanc Retreats also arrange airport transfer and in valley transport.

In winter: ski/snowboard hire and lessons.

In summer: climbing tuition and guides, paragliding, rafting, kayaking, ascents of Mont Blanc and even helicopter rides.

Contact for bookings and more information.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We had a lovely week in the Old Library in Argentiere. The appartment was very clean, warm and comfortable with all the equipment we required and more - never thought we'd need such a big telly, but we still used it! It was extremely convenient for groceries and ski hire, souveniers etc as the shops are 50m away. The walk to the bus stop was not too onerous either - about 5 mins. The welcome and administration was excellent. The only thing we'd like to recommend is some extra shelves in the kitchen area. Otherwise we had a super week and would definitely consider going there again."

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Library. Argentiere and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed and convenient for groceries, a fabulous bakery, restaurants and nearby sights. We could not get movies to work on the TV, but were not really concerned as we did not come to Argentiere to watch TV. Booking, payment, check-in, check-out and return of our damage deposit was fast and simple. We would not hesitate to stay at the Old Library again.

We found the property just great. Extremely convenient location and good layout of rooms for privacy

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend to others. The kitchen needs a microwave oven and we never figured out how to turn on TV but these were minor issues.

Very comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described in the listing. It was clean and well maintained, although the upstairs shower had a poor flow of water. We found the property very comfortable and was ideally located in the centre of the village, within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. Mont Blanc Retreats provided excellent customer service. This area of the Alps is beautiful and there was plenty to do during the summer. We purchased a 5 day (non-consecutive) mont blanc pass and this was excellent value for money, we would highly recommend paying the extra for the mont blanc panoramic gondola ride into Italy, which was the highlight of our trip.

A lovely apartment with X box and Wii for the kids, can walk them to ski school which is a bonus after a few years of the bus! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

Nearest Ski
8.5 Kilometres
Ski Lift | Aiguille du Midi Lift Station

Argentiere is 10 minutes by car to the Alpine town of Chamonix Mont Blanc. It sits at the base of one of the best ski areas in the region, the Grands Montets and is only 5 minutes from La Balme ski area.

The Grands Montets is the highest ski domaine in the region, at 3300m at the top station! It is a heaven with skiers and boarders alike.

Switzerland and Italy are both close by.

The infamous Vallee Blanche ski run which descends 17km from the top of the Aiguille du Midi to Chamonix is accessed by the Aiguilee de Midi lift just 10 minutes away.

The summer has plenty to offer with walking, hiking and mountaineering on your door step as well as paragliding, rock climbing, white water rafting and mountain biking.
