Lovely cosy apartment
About the Owner
Bought originally as an apartment for our own use, but have now chosen to rent the apartment ourselves to ensure the standards are kept high. We are both working in the service industry and understand what the people would wish for in their holiday experience we will endeavour to please. Often airborne so please excuse small delays in correspondence. Simon and Alex.
Simon purchased this apartment in 2005
Why Simon chose Haute-Savoie
Location is ideal, a one off new build in a quiet rural lane but very close to the amenities of Chamonix town.
What makes this apartment unique
As an avid skier I am surprised that I enjoy the apartment and valley even more in the summer.

Lovely cosy apartment
The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was well equipped and very warm. It was about 10 mins to town center, Simon was great to deal with and we were met on arrival...all and all it was a great place to stay.
Great Chamonix Location
We went in July 2015 and had superb hot sunny weather for the two weeks.
Chamonix is fantastic in summer.The apartment is really well located, just a 10 minute stroll from the centre and the cable cars. We could easily walk to the Climbing World Championships in the square.The apartment is clean and well appointed.
It is very useful having parking in the garage. You can get quite big vehicles in but it is fairly tight.
There is a nearby patisserie shack to get croissants in the morning.
We did quite a few walks from the top of cable cars and we would recommend that you work out how many of the main cable cars you will want to use and get a multi-pass for non-consecutive days’ right at the start. It is likely to be at least 4 – 5 days.The scenery around Chamonix is absolutely stunning. Going up the Aguille de Midi is a must.You’ll be surrounded by a mass of tourists but also serious climbers going out onto the ice.
The white tops look stunningly beautiful but unless you are very experienced and competent, you cannot even begin to walk on them. They are completely different from the snow on UK hills because they are ice and glaciers which are really quite dangerous. We heard huge avalanches when we were up there.
We would thorough recommend the walk from Plan de Midi to Hotel du Montenvers and the tunnel into the glacier. We’d recommend the cable car to Col des Grand Montets but also the cable cars up from Le Tour to the Col de Balme where there is a gentle stroll across alpine meadows into Switzerland. There is just a refuge/café and no boundary other than a small post.
However the best thing ever is the tandem paragliding from the top of the Planpraz cable car which you can see from the apartment. You book it at the end of the road and land in the field also just at the end of the road. If you want you can quite easily fly over the apartment on your way in! It is breathtakingly superb.
As it was so hot we went to the Lac de Passy where the kids went on the inflatable playground for hours. A fresh-water and warm lake with superb views of Mont Blanc.
We also went white-water rafting and did quite a few low level valley walks as any climbing or even walking at mid-levels was quite wearing in the heat.
We drove down from Roscoff but next time we would probably fly and hire a car because Geneva is only about an hour or so away and the roads are pretty easy driving even though people are saying it was very a busy time when we visited.
We have just come back from a fantastic week in chamonix, from the first email with the owner to getting the keys off the friendly meet and greet.
The location is superb, and the apartment is spacious and well kitted out with everything you could possibly need for a great stay in the mountains. We have only been back for a day and are now thinking about going on a summer holiday out there.
We'll go back.......
We loved it here.
The town, the people, the atmosphere and the apartment all played their part in a wonderful week away.
We don't usually spend a great deal of time in our accommodation when we're on holiday so our main criteria is for it to be within walking distance of bars, restaurants, activities, a supermarket and transport links.
This apartment surpassed all our expectations.
In fact, it was so comfortable we found ourselves lingering there in the mornings as we drank coffee on the balcony while soaking up the views and even chose to head back there for late lunches and cosy dinners when we would normally have been hitting the bars.
When we did head out to party the ten minute stroll into town was perfect for us as it meant we could enjoy the Chamonix nightlife without having it outside our bedroom window at 2am.
A great apartment in a great location and somewhere we're already planning to go back to.
Our family of 4 had a super weeks holiday in this lovely apartment. It had comfy beds, hot water/showers, excellent kitchen and wonderful views. The garage was handy and the location perfect , just a 10min stroll into the charming village of Chamonix. The owner and local meet and greet were very helpful and helped make our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. There is loads to do in the valley, walks, bike rides, climbing or simply enjoy the views and sunbathe.
A little gem!
We have spent a Wonderful week in this beautifully appointed apartment. There is everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break, deck chairs, BBQ etc. We could not get over how much there is to see and do in this wonderful valley whether you are older and just want to wander through the streets of the old town and drift through the forest paths or if young and energetic you might want to try the Luge or Accropark through the treetops by the lakes. We did not have our grandchildren with us on this occasion but when they come they will not know were to start with all the adventures to be had. Loved it. Thank you.
