About the property

Apartment in Chamonix Les Praz, Haute Savoie/Rhone Alps, Fran - Great For Skiing And In Summer

A lovely spacious apartment in a chalet style building with stunning views of Mont Blanc from the south facing garden and overlooking a large meadow area. Excellent location in a quiet cul de sac in the traditional village of Les Praz. Within a few minutes walking distance of the Flegere lift, skiing, golf course, bars, shops and restaurants, and less than a 5 minute drive or approximately 25 minutes walk to Chamonix centre. Alternatively you can catch the mountain railway train from the nearby station to Chamonix or to Argentiere and Vallorcine. Wonderful skiing in winter and excellent walking and cycling in summer at the doorstep. The location of the property gives you the benefit of being near the amenities and liveliness of Chamonix, whilst enjoying peaceful and scenic surroundings. The Chamonix Valley has something for everyone with 350 pisted runs covered by the Mont Blanc Ski Pass in winter and numerous walking and cycling trails in summer.

About anne coates

I live with my husband in Bedfordshire in England and have 3 daughters and 10 grandchildren. One of our daughters (and 4 of our grandchildren) is a doctor in Geneva, which is why we bought our apartment 11 years ago, just after our second grandchild was born.

Why anne coates chose Chamonix

We have spent many happy days and weeks with our family and with friends in the apartment in both summer and winter. We love the sunny south facing aspect and the light airiness of it and there is plenty of space for 6 or 8. You can walk straight from the apartment or catch one of the lifts and enjoy the high mountain views on marked paths. There is lots for the children to do in the area and many adventurous activities for young and old. The nearby golf course is superb and the skiing is second to none. Try the restaurant at the Hotel Eden or the Golf Club - we think they are the best in the area.

A fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay in Chamonix. The apartment was very spacious and well equipped with amazing views from every window and the lovely south facing garden. Les Praz itself is a very pretty village with several nice restaurants and provides an excellent base for exploring the Chamonix region and the surrounding area. The owners Anne and John were very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of good ideas and advice about what to see and do. Unfortunately our car broke down while we were in Chamonix and Anne could not have been more helpful, allowing us to stay on until our car was sorted. We has a fantastic stay which we will always remember and would love to return in the future. The Allens

Excellent, well equipped and in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with very helpful, responsive and friendly owners. The location was superb with great views down the Chamonix valley towards Mont Blanc and across to the Aiguille du Dru, probably our favourite atmospheric peak. It was very easy to relax whilst sitting and admiring the beautiful alpine glow as the sun set over the snowy peaks. A perfect place for photos , time lapses and taking it easy to marvel at the whole Chamonix valley.

We did plenty of skiing and being very close to the railway stop meant that return trips from Le Buet after tours in the Aiguille Rouge were very easy.

Whilst not in the middle of Chamonix we loved being close enough to walk into Chamonix along the river in less than half an hour. In the opposite direction, we really enjoyed walks up into the woods and other beautiful areas around Les Praz like "Paradis des Praz". When walking was not possible, the frequent bus service into town was perfect and very convenient.

The local Epicerie in Les Praz high street was a friendly place with some great products. As it opened at 7:30 we were regular visitors for fresh bread and pastries for breakfast. We also tried the local restaurant, La Cremerie Du Moulin Les Praz and really enjoyed their excellent pizzas.

Overall the apartment was just what we were after. The three good sized bedrooms meant there was plenty of space. Best though was the open plan living area and kitchen which was spacious and a very social space.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could not have asked for a better apartment, location and owners, just what we had hoped for.

The apartment was fantastic, well equipped with lots of room for five of us. Les Praz is a lovely village and it's easy to walk into Chamonix. Loads to do nearby. Arrangements re booking, arrival and departure were all very easy. We had a fabulous time.

Exceeded all expectations!! We had a magnificent holiday with this as our home base. We fell in love with Les Praz, Chamonix and the local people. We spent two weeks here and never ran out of things to do for all the ages. Our best holiday to date...thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Spacious and well equipped apartment, plenty of wardrobes, drawers etc so you can really settle in and feel at home. Everything you need in the kitchen if you want to rustle up a meal for eight.

Lovely sunny garden with amazing views.

We'll definitely be booking again.

We have just returned from 6 nights at les launches.

Family of 6 we had more than enough room and could have easily accommodated at least 2 more people.

The appartment was very comfortable, clean and warm even though the outside temperature didnt rise above -7.

The village of les Praz is beautiful. We found it a fabulous location for a Base to explore the whole chamonix area. The buses ran very frequently to all of the ski lifts and the train was also great. The walk into chamonix was just stunning and took around half hour at a leisurely pace.

It was our first trip to Chamonix and the whole family had the most wonderful time and will most definitely return...... so sad to be home !

Thank you for having us in your lovely apartment Anne.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. One of the things that attracted us when we bought the apartment was the location - peaceful and pretty but close enough to Chamonix to enjoy the vibrancy of it, by walking there or using the train or bus. Hope you come and stay again - the summer is lovely too.
