About the property

Apartment in Les Houches, Chamonix Valley - Short Walk To Bellevue Lift Station, Great For Families

The apartment is located in the brand new development known as Chalet Whymper, located in the heart of Les Houches, about 150m from the Bellevue lift station. It is ideally situated for the Kandahar World Cup downhill race which takes place at the end of January and is very convenient for skiing and access to the rest of the village and valley. The apartment offers spacious, airy accommodation which has been completed and furnished to a high standard. The kitchen is well equipped and the balcony allows you to enjoy fabulous sunsets over the Aiguilles Vertes. The apartment is located on the first floor of the building with a large balcony and is accessed from either the garage or the front door by lift. There is a video entry phone, underfloor heating, TV and DVD player and it is tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings, deep sofas and a fully equipped kitchen. The apartment has secure private underground car parking and a ski locker.

Perfect location. Close to lifts and supermarket.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location! The apartment is just a 5 minute walk to the Belle Vue cable car. The village centre with a choice of a few restaurants & bars is close by and it's a 10 minute walk to the supermarket.

The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday including a washing machine, which was very handy. If you like to cook there's good knives, pans and plenty of crockery and cutlery etc.

Great views from the lounge balcony.

Although on the main road through Les Houches, the apartment is very quiet at night and we had no problems sleeping.

The apartment was lovely and warm with loads of hot water and was very clean.

There were just two of us and the apartment was plenty big enough. The bunk beds looked very comfortable but as they are located in the spacious hallway, would probably be suited to a family with children or 2 couples who know each other really well. There is also a sofa bed in the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner.

Everything you need is here including TV. DVD player, selection of films, games and fast wifi connection.

We love Les Houches and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Activity and Interests


Clearly the Alps aren't within 10 minutes of the beach. However, during the summer a quick 15 minute drive will take you to Lac Du Passy. Here you can swim in a large warm fresh water lake, with fabulous views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains. There is a small beach and large park surrounding the lake providing all the space you need to sunbathe, kick a ball or throw a frisbee. There is also a small cafe and a barbeque area. There is a 2 Euro per car charge to park.


Les Houches is only 50 mins from Geneva airport, transfers can be arranged.

Car hire is not essential especially in the winter as the local bus service can transport you all around the valley. We would probably recommend a car for the summer as you may wish to visit further afield - Italy is only 10 mins away.


Geneva airport, 90km.

Chamonix, 6km.

Further Details:

Bus stop - The closest bus stop is about 150m from the apartment.

Ski Pass - Ticket office at Bellevue Lift station (150m).

Ski Hire - Numerous within 200m of apartment.

Supermarket - Shopi, Les Houches (500m).

Boulangerie - 150m.
