About the property

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

This apartment is a rare find in a priviledged position.

One of only a handful of apartments 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 apartment.

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 deck area and swimming pool.

The apartment is a comfortable and cosy, recently renovated basement apartment, within a larger chalet. It has its own independent entrance, accessed through the shared garden.

There are 2 seperate bedrooms. The largest bedroom can be made up as a double or twin. The smaller bedroom has a double bed only. The sofa bed in the lounge/kitchen area allows up to 6 people to stay in the apartment. The kitchen area is well equipped and there is a seperate dining area. The family bathroom has a large shower enclosure.

Outside the entrance there is a large decking area giving fabulous views of the Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc chain. Here you will find seating and a large gas BBQ. There is also a garden area here.

The heated outdoor pool is available June-September and shared with the residents of the chalet only. Please note it is heated by a heat exchanger and so the temperature of the water depends on the outside temperature. The apartment has its own entrance point to the pool, through the patio doors of the largest bedroom.

Parking for the property is in the 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 lived in this apartment while running the main house as a catered chalet. Over the years we improved the property and had many successful years in the chalet industry. In 2008 we changed focus, and so now rent out the apartment on a self catering basis.

Sarah Martin purchased this apartment 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 apartment unique

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

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 available to all.

Clean, comfortable and superbly located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment suited us very well. A good size for a family of 4 and it was a real benefit being able to ski back every day. Just a 5 minute walk to the lift in the morning as well. Everything you need is easily within walking distance.

Great apartment with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment with views to die for. Perfect for a family of 4. Well equipped (washing machine and dish washer would have made it perfect!). Sole use of swimming pool was a bonus. Short walk to Les Houches village. By busyish road but did not affect the quality of the position. Highly recommend.

Lovely chalet and amazing area

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying in this apartment. The guardians (who live next door) were really friendly and very helpful. The chalet is small but absolutely adequate for two adults and two children. The view from the chalet is idyllic, so perfect for a morning cup of coffee! We loved the area (Les Houches has plenty of shops and restaurants, and we are keen to return to the area to explore it again).

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this apartment as a family of 2 adults and 2 children. It is well furnished, very clean, close to the ski lifts and ski school and it is possible to ski back to the door.

The guardians are very welcoming and helpful.

I would recommend this apartment for 4 or even 6 using the sofa in the living room.
