About the Owner

We are two friends who live in England (respectively in Sussex and Devon) who have known each other and worked together for almost 20 years and own adjoining apartments in Chamonix. We and our families all love the outdoors - particularly the mountains - and have numerous dogs, horses and other animals between us.

Lovely property in a perfect position for the ski lift and bses to Chamonix and Annecy.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 adults and had a great time cooking our evening meals and playing games in the apartment after our days spent skiing. The apartment is well equipped and in a perfect position for the Flegere ski area and lift. The Chamonix bus stops 100 metres away and the attached Hotel Eden is excellent for good food. All facilities were available in the apartment. It was comfy, cosy and warm. Apart from one of the TV's in the bedrooms was not working but otherwise it was well equipped having everything that was documented. There was good customer service from the owners prior to flying and then on arrival at the apartment.

We will stay there again and have already recommended it to friends..

Fantastic views, well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped apartment with all you need for a comfortable stay. Fantastic views from three different sides, which was great as we had blue skies for all but one day. The apartment was exactly as detailed in the description and was well-maintained. A little worried when we first arrived that is was next to a railway line but after the first day didn't notice it - no early or late trains. Nice to have UK television to catch up with the news. DVD player. When we experienced a problem with the Wi-fi Alex the representative was very quick to fix it. The apartment was an excellent base to explore the delights of the Chamonix valley.

Fantastic views on three sides

  • 5 of 5

The views from the apartment are quite stunning at all times of the day. We would recommend the apartment to stay in as a well-positioned base to explore the area. It is quiet and calm in the evening and time was spent on the balcony chatting and talking and taking in the view. The narrow gauge railway (the Mont Blanc Express) runs in the day below the apartment, usually about hourly with the stop approximately 100 yards away. It is a free (with the visitors card that comes with the rental), easy, and pleasant way to nip into town for visiting, shopping and pick up other travel connections up and down the valley. However if you have a car your options are increased, particularly in the mid to late evening. The SuperU supermarket in the town centre has a great array of produce and household items (it has a car park). The town has range of speciality shops from sports equipment, to gluten free and organic, and cafés.

The apartment was well maintained, well presented and very comfortable. The support from the owner’s local representative was very useful. WiFi is strictly within the apartment. All that was needed to prepare food was available. The restaurant at the neighbouring Eden hotel had a relaxed atmosphere, the food nicely presented and the staff were very accommodating for special requests. The Cabane restaurant at the nearby golf club is particularly good for a special meal.

For the second week of the visit the Cosmo Jazz festival was on, free concerts over the town and in the mountains which was great fun to sample. Also worth a visit, particularly if you have children is the St Bernard Dog Museum complete with live dogs and puppies, up the valley in Martigny, Switzerland, accessible by train and either a walk or taxi (we did both). In the same town is an elegant museum and art gallery (it had a fantastic Matisse focused exhibition when we visited) also with a sculpture garden. Well worth a visit.

Locally, the market on Saturdays is worth a visit (8am-12) for fresh produce and gifts-homeware. The local swimming pool is very good (again cheaper with the visitor’s card) flume, waterslide, fun pools, 25m indoor and 50m outdoor pool. There is an activity park not far from the terminus for the train with both adults and children enjoying particularly ‘The Luge’ run.

The main visits are up to the hills for glaciers and magnificent views. But it is a lovely place just to relax and have a mixture of culture, sport and easy living to hand.

Location

From the Owner

Chamonix is a unique mountain resort - not only because it stands beneath Mont Blanc. It is equally busy and enjoyable in Summer and Winter with outdoor activities suited for all ages and abilities, and places to relax, eat or shop in abundance. Barely an hour from Geneva it is extremely accessible, while the variety of other resorts, towns and mountain areas that are themselves within an hour of Chamonix are too many to mention here. It is easy to find yourself in France, Italy and Switzerland all in the same day. The quiet village of Les Praz is right next to the golf course and the Flegere lift. It is a pleasant 20 minute walk into Chamonix centre or a matter of minutes on the free train and bus services.

Activity and Interests

Travel:

Les Praz is close to Chamonix, which is 88 kilometres from Geneva International Airport where taxis and rental cars are available for hire. Buses operate frequently throughout the day from the airport to Chamonix taking around 1.25 hours. Transfer buses can also be booked – you will be met at the airport and dropped off at your accommodation. Regular urban transport serves the Chamonix Valley and ski areas. It is free from Servoz to Le Tour for holders of the Carte d’Hôte pass or ski-lift pass.

Distances:

Les Praz village - a 2-minute walk - has a grocery store, newsagents, ski shop and restaurants. Chamonix town centre is only a 15-20 minute walk away or 2-kilometers by car. Here you will find a good selection of shops including supermarkets, banks, equipment hire and outdoor shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and casino.

Further Details:

Breakfast can be taken in the Hotel Eden. Just let the Hotel know on arrival if you'd like to take advantage of this. Meals can also be enjoyed in the Hotel’s restaurant - lunch (in the summer) and dinner on the terrace or restaurant with views of Mont Blanc. Or choose from a number of good restaurants within walking distance of the apartments.

The sports centre in Chamonix has indoor and outdoor pools, diving area, slides and a solarium, which provides fun for the whole family. There are also climbing walls, tennis and squash courts and an ice rink where you can watch ice hockey matches and support the local team, Les Chamois.

In the winter, as well as skiing and snowboarding, there is a wide network of cross-country trails, husky dog sledging, para gliding and snow shoeing. In the summer, you can join numerous beautiful hiking and mountain bike trails from just outside the door.

Facilities

From the Owner

The properties enjoy the benefits of being in Les Praz which has its own shops and good restaurants as well as access to the skiing, golf and other outdoor activities - all still just a few minutes from Chamonix centre. The two properties can be rented together or individually - meaning that they can accommodate larger groups with plenty of space for everyone. The rooms are all very well sized and with good facilities in each apartment. Coming back to Chamonix, whether in the ski season or in Summer is truly like coming home.
