Popular Chalet well located in Chamonix, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Chalet Croix des Pècles : Convenient Location, A Short 300 meter Walk To The Shops And Restaurants

Chalet Croix des Pècles is a very popular chalet, located in the highly desirable area of Les Pècles.

This comfortable and modern chalet sleeps up to 10 people in 5 bedrooms, arranged to suit your needs whether you are a group of singles or couples. With spectacular views of Mont Blanc and a stones throw from the many shops/bars and restaurants the location couldn't be better. Following a challenging day on the slopes you can have dinner enjoying the mountain views and then curl up in front of the large open fire with a DVD, or head into town to one of the many restaurants.

Chalet Croix des Pècles has 5 bedrooms, one of which is a separate studio. The studio has its own access and Mont Blanc views.

There is a large open plan living area with comfortable sofas arranged around an open fireplace. This has a 50" 3D HD flat screen TV with Blu-ray and FreeSat and a surround sound system which can also be used to play music from guests devices. The living area leads onto a dining area which is perfect for cosy dinner parties. Both the living and dining areas have large panoramic windows which open out onto a full length balcony where you can sit and enjoy the spectacular mountain views.

About the Owner

We love the area and all it has to offer. Initially we were attracted by the skiing - both the diversity of the different ski areas but also the amazing off piste terrain.

In addition to the skiing you can go hiking, biking, climbing, canyoning, paragliding - the list of activities is almost endless.

Chamonix town has a charm, all the facilities you could want all year round, and the people are friendly - sharing a common love of the outdoors.

The scenery is breathtaking - being home to Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc and over 40 glaciers, and all of this is a short 90 min drive from Geneva airport.

We had an amazing stay thanks. The chalet was very comfortable and it was great to come back after a hard day mountain biking and relax on the balcony with its amazing views.

Perfect views of Mont Blanc

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Chamonix 6 times, and the accommodation has always been very good, this chalet was no different. Really nice living space and all the facilities you could want. The price is extremely reasonable for such a lovely place and it sits in the perfect position for the high street and for the amazing views of Mont Blanc.

Brilliant Chalet in exc location with exc views!

  • 5 of 5

Great chalet for two families with kids for a fortnight. Superb views - enjoyed many evenings watching sun set on Mont Blanc after full days out in the mountains, luge, swimming at Passy etc. Owner v helpful and reliable. Fully recommend. You couldn't get a better central but quiet location in Cham.

Fabulous modern Chalet with picture perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant week staying in this wonderful chalet. Never done a summer Alps holiday before but will definitely return. The weather was amazing and the hiking fantastic. The chalet is perfectly located a small walk from Chamonix high street, with its great restaurants/shops etc and its close to the train station and some lifts.

Accommodation is spacious, modern, great for entertaining, with a fully equipped kitchen making self catering a joy. Bedrooms are clean with expensive bedding and we slept well. Great garden for BBQs and deck with seating to chill and admire the view, and its that view that makes this chalet - perfect view of Mont Blanc, and you can see it as you wake up in the master bedroom. Highly recommend this place and will be returning.

Perfect chalet in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful ski holiday in Chamonix. We were 6 adults and 5 kids aged from 8-15. The chalet was ideal. It is clean, modern, warm and spacious - perfect for socialising and chilling after skiing. It is in the best location, just a few minutes walk from town but very quiet (and I am sensitive to noise). The owners could not have done more to make the holiday better. Fantastic memories for us all! Esf chamonix will clear you from the chalet too! 100% recommended!

Amazing Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed in the chalet for a week over new years eve and it was the perfect place to enjoy Chamonix from. The chalet itself was kept in great condition with incredibly comfy beds throughout and amazing kitchen/bathrooms. The chalet was always warm and the log fire was really easy to use and kept the living area nice and toasty!

The walk into town takes only a couple of minutes and the main bus station which you can get free buses to all the ski lifts is also only a few minutes away.

Esme was incredibly helpful the whole way through, she knows the area really well and gave us lots of info to help during our stay.

I highly recommend staying here whilst in Chamonix!

Amazing Chalet in an Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 who have recently returned from an absolutely brilliant trip to the Chalet. Great Location, beautifully finished - as everyone has said, it's comfy modern and easily caters 10 adults. We arrived around mid day and were greeted by the lovely cleaner who had done an excellent job. Everything was cleaned to a high standard and she had left bin bags, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid.

The rooms are all very spacious and nicely decorated, with comfy mattresses. The master bedroom is HUGE and has a walk in wardrobe and a HUGE shower that can fit almost anybody. The views over looking Mont Blanc are breathtaking and the location is supberb - 5 or so minuets walk to the nearest Casino shop (in town) and about the same to the bus stop over the bridge. Bins are described as being 50m away but they seemed a lot closer in reality.

Esme (the owner) is fantastic and was very fast at answering all my questions, giving some great restaurant recommendations and even offering discounted Ski Passes. Would highly recommend to anybody!
