About the Owner

My husband and I live in England. We have 2 boys of 26 and 22 plus a dog. We love outdoor activities and will give most things a try which is why we bought in Chamonix. We had been before in both Summer and Winter and knew there was loads to do in both seasons. We are delighted that as well as enjoying many of the same activities we are also still finding new things to try. Access is great with the motorway up to the Mont Blanc tunnel giving dual carriageway to within a mile of the town centre. This means either an easy transfer from Geneva in about an hour or an 8 hour drive from Calais, so on our longer breaks we can bring our much loved pet who unsurprisingly loves outdoor activities too. Unusually for Chamonix centre we have 2 parking spaces and a lift up to the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a fantastic week in Chamonix with sun and snow, very pleased with the apartment, lovely views and location and are looking forward to returning sometime."

Phil (Birmingham).



"Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the apartment. It’s not like any apartment I’ve rented in Chamonix before, incredibly spacious and the central location was really convenient. It had everything we needed.

I’ll have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone."

Excellent apartment in Chamonix

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a great central location. The apartment was spacious, modern and comfortable. The washer/dryer in unit was very useful, and so was the crib that was provided. On the weekend there is some noise from the bars, but it did not bother us. Highly recommend.

Central, perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Reluctant to say how good/central and spacious it really is, as I don't want to be competing with you when I get around to booking it again next year. I've been coming here for years, the apartment is large, comfortable and perfectly located in the centre of town.

The apartment is spacious and very well located.

  • 5 of 5

Our five day stay in Chamonix in mid March was very enjoyable. The apartment in rue des Moulins served our needs very well. It is spacious, well equipped, and located close to shops, bars and restaurants, which made easy both eating in and out. A beautiful view of the mountains from the balcony is an extra asset.

Fantastic property to stay in Chamonix

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for 7 days and it was great. The property is well maintained, clean and specious (we where 5 adults). The location of the flat is very convenient for using the Chamonix shuttle services. Ingrid has provided all necessary information before arrival and Angela was very welcoming when arrived and also provided the relevant details about the flat and staying around so we felt very comfortable.

WELL RECCOMENDED

Amazing apartment in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 9 other friends for a long weekend ski trip in Feb 16. The apartment is massive, it slept 10 comfortably & we weren't short of space. Facilities inside are amazing. Everything you need to make your trip pleasurable.

Location wise, couldn't be more central. Perfect for accessing all of Chamonix. Easy reach of busses to lifts, bars & restaurants.

Booking was also very simple & the information pack sent through covered everything.

5 star.

Location and comfort are the stand outs

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe the location of this apartment - absolutely at the centre of Chamonix. Having stayed in La Praz on our last visit, being so centrally located just can't be beaten. The apartment is furnished for comfort, with the big kitchen and living rooms getting plenty of use at the end of the ski day. Yes the bars in the alley behind the apartment get busy until the early hours, but we were advised in advance and it's nothing good ear plugs can't solve. Angela was a wealth of information for us upon check in, and the apartment is well stocked for self-catering. Will be recommending this apartment to family and friends for their next visit, and will certainly stay here again when I'm lucky enough to next be in Chamonix.

Location

From the Owner

The skiing possibilities are huge with the Multi pass covering 7 ski areas in 3 countries. This has the advantage of both providing huge variety but also of letting you choose your area to get the best conditions on the day. For non skiers there are loads of options from sightseeing to walking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, husky sledging, skiing. Chamonix is a proper town and so has loads of amenities as well - lots of restaurants and shops, but also a good indoor pool complex, an ice rink, indoor climbing walls, indoor tennis and 10 pin bowling. Summer brings a huge choice. Apart from all types of mountaineering there is canyoning, white water rafting/ canoeing and mountain biking, a great golf course and some fabulous day out options too - Summer luge, parcours, Lac Passy.

Facilities

From the Owner

When our friends, family and guests have stayed we are always delighted at the enthusiasm they come back with both for our apartment and for the Chamonix region. The spaciousness of the apartment is always a focus, as is the central location. For self catered accomodation you can't do much better than being 1 minute walk from the main supermarket and 20 seconds to the 4 nearest restaurants! This gives people a real choice to eat in, eat out or have a take away and not to have to decide until the last minute which to pick. In winter the fabulous open hearth and the big kitchen table create a fabulous homely environment. In Summer the large windows, french doors and balcony allow the Summer in and you to sit out and sunbathe.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The proximity to the town centre restaurants and bars could not be better. Unfortunately this means that on busy nights it can be noisy if you are used to more rural living. In our view the benefits outweigh the noise and we use foam earplugs during busy periods to ensure an uninterrupted sleep. Outside: Although this Chamonix apartment enjoys the most fantastic central location, the buildings outside the windows are almost all low level which means that it is not really overlooked allowing views of 3 aspects. The apartment has a large terrace balcony which extends most of the length of the apartment with fantastic views of the Bosson Glacier and Mont Blanc. Relax in the comfortable deck chairs and enjoy the magnificent view. There is private parking for 2 cars which takes all the hassle out of trying to find a parking space. There is also a private lockable ski cave in the basement which is extremely useful for skiers. Utility Room: No utility but washing machine with integral dryer in kitchen. Ski locker in basement for boots and skis. Large entrance hallway with hooks, a cupboard with ironing board and hoover, storage unit for shoes/hats/gloves etc. Cot and High chair available Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The apartment has pillows and duvets for all beds/sofa beds. Our local partners will meet you and show you round the apartment as well as help with any questions you have. Other: In the hallway is a desk, office chair and broadband access (wi-fi).
