Overview

About the property

Large appt with balcony, parking, and mountain views. 5 mins from Brevent lift

Le Beausite is our stylish 3 bed apartment in central Chamonix with pool and views of Mont Blanc. One third of our guests come and stay again - both in winter and summer.

Perfect for skiing or summer, our apartment is 5 minutes from the ski lift and has a private residents pool (open mid-June to mid-September) and south facing terrace overlooking Mont Blanc for sunny days!

The apartment sleeps 6-8, with 8 adults being the optimum (most comfortable!) use of space.

We have 3 double bedrooms (all with joinable twin beds) a large open plan kitchen and lounge nearly 9m long, small bunk room with two bunk beds, and a bathroom and wetroom. We are on the second floor and there is a lift.

There is ski hire shop and supermarket just below the apartments and plenty of transfer companies which run shared taxis from Geneva airport.

We are located moments from the best patisserie in the village for those delicious breakfast morning runs, and right next to some of the best fondue houses and restaurants for the evenings. The cinema and bowling alley are also very close.

There is a 42' plasma screen for lazy days, WI-FI internet access, dishwasher and washer dryer, and ski locker.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Apartment could not be better for location. Accommodation was spacious, modern, and very clean. Stunning views from all rooms, great for all ages, quiet yet central location.”

S Goggin, Surrey.

Great apartment in a fantastic location. Represents excellent value for money as you get more space and better quality accommodation than from a hotel twice the price. Location cannot be faulted - close to shops and restaurants but also within walking distance of the Brevant cable car. Ian was also able to provide us with some valuable pointers and tips which was vital for inexperienced skiers such as ourselves. We'd all definitely stay there again”

G Shaw, UK

'A great place to stay either for a family or a group of friends. Quite central to the town and loads of places to eat within a short distance and most of the cable cars are within a 10min walk from the apartment' R Purdue, UK.

Really enjoyed our summer stay

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week in the apartment in mid July 2017, and were very pleased. The apartment block is superbly located towards one end of the main shopping street, so right in all the action, with a small supermarket almost opposite, and lots of restaurants for the evening right on the doorstep. The view from the balcony is just stunning too.

Everything was clean and in good order when we arrived, and the appliances are modern and all worked well, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms are modern and worked very well.

Communication with the owner was excellent all the way along.

The swimming pool was a really nice temperature, never too busy, and actually a really pleasant pool to swim in. My one gripe would be that there's no beds, and just a few chairs, if there were beds (or more wooden decking) around the large area around the pool it would be perfect. Settle by the wooden decking around the edge of the pool though for the best option. When coming back down the lifts we noticed very few swimming pools in Chamonix that I could see anyhow, and you can spot this pool from a long way up the lift - so it's perhaps a rare gem!

There's a car park for the block, although we found it tough to get a space, but then we did arrive the day after Bastille Day so I'd guess that's probably one of the busiest summer weekends possible in Chamonix. On the plus side the town was buzzing, and I got up early one morning to nab a free parking space in the road behind the block.

Overall we were very happy with our stay - there's lots to do in Chamonix, and this apartment is a great base to explore it from.

Review of week in apartment for skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

There were four adults and three children in this party. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in this comfortable, tastefully decorated apartment. Our contact with the owner from the beginning was extremely helpful and professional, especially on arrival, as we arrived late evening with young children, we found the owner to be most helpful and accomodating in this situation. The apartment was very clean on arrival and spacious, the kids loved the bunk beds, and we all enjoyed the amazing view of the mountains from the balcony. The apartment is so central, just off one of the main shopping streets, with restaurants and bars within a short stroll, however it is very quiet inside the apartment, ensuring a good nights sleep. The two bathrooms are tastefully decorated with excellent showers and the kitchen is very well equipped. The bus stop to all nearby ski slopes is a few mins walk away and we found the ski lockers in the basement very useful. I would highly recommend this accomodation to anyone especially families. We are rebooking again for next year.

Fantastic apartment ideally located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is centrally located ideal for both the ski lift and the town center. It has a pleasant light and airy feel, there is plenty of space and it is well equipped. With truly amazing views of Mt Blanc the cosy open plan living area complete with wood-burner creates the perfect warmth and ambience following a long days skiing. The lift access and boot room makes both storage of ski gear and the apartment easily accessible. Thanks for a great stay, we will returning again.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a brilliant town-centre location. It's well-appointed, comfortable and stylish and has amazing views across the valley towards Mont Blanc. The wood burner is wonderful on a cold night. Everything was clean and in good order when we arrived. We love being in the middle of town and Le Beau Site is good because it's so close to the shops, restaurants and the atmosphere of town. Despite this proximity, it's not noisy. Heartily recommended.

Best Location ever in downtown Chamonix

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and well equipped. We were a party of 7 adults and so we were a little dismayed that there was only one closet in the apartment and that was located in the master bedroom. We managed to share and the other rooms had cubby hole shelving and basically we got over it and had a great vacation. The apartment is located in the center of Chamonix so nothing was more than a 20 minute walk away, bars, restaurants, hotels, stores all very convenient. The walk to the Brevant ski lift was about 25 minutes and the last part up a steep hill; definitely got a workout every day. Overall, excellent.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback - we are now having new storage furniture built for two of the bedrooms which should make things easier. Next time we can also show you a short cut up to the Brevent lift to shorten the work out :) Really glad you enjoyed your stay, I hope we can welcome you again.

Location

Nearest Airport
100 Kilometres
Geneva
Car: not necessary

Our apartment is in the centre of Chamonix village, just a 5 minute walk to the main lift of Brevant. This gives you access to the Brevant -Flegere ski areas (combined these form the largest ski area in the Chamonix valley). There are a further 3 large ski areas each of which can be reached by the free ski bus in less than 10 minutes (Les Houches, Grand Montets/Argentiere, Le Tour).

Geneva is a 50 minute, easy drive away from here.

Other Activities: Ice skating, bowling, cinema
