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 front door and stunning Mont Blanc views.

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.

About Es

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.

Why Es chose Chamonix

Great location in a desirable area of Chamonix, a short walk to all facilities. South facing, so on the sunny side of the valley, with amazing uninterrupted mountain views.

The chalet is a large (210m3) and comfortable modern chalet with many facilities.

What makes this chalet unique

Exceptional value. Great location and uninterrupted views of Mont Blanc.

Large comfortable chalet with modern furnishings and high quality furniture and bedding.

A short, flat walk to the town centre.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Great living area, and most rooms good.

  • 4 of 5

The living area is brilliant, as the the master and the 2 twin rooms. The location is good, with a ski hire shop close and brilliant. A good location for us. The owner also very helpful.

Only criticism was that 2 of the bedrooms weren't brilliant. One very small, and can only use the bathroom upstairs. The other, a basement, which was fine other than the sofa bed which is never ideal.

A good base for the money though.

Great location, great accommodation and fantastic snow

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Chamonix but our 9th snowboarding trip to the area. Booking the chalet was simple and the owner was in contact frequently with helpful information. The chalet itself is lovely. Massive kitchen, seating for 10 people and loads of sofas and chairs round the huge tv. One double bed is off the kitchen and the other 3 upstairs. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe bigger than some double rooms we have had before! Large shower in the ensuite and a separate bathroom next door with bath. Really can’t complain about anything, a hot tub would be the icing on the cake for this amazing place but that’s a rare find in central Chamonix. Book this place, you won’t have any disappointments. Thanks for an amazing stay we will definitely book again.

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is perfectly located on a quiet road but is conveniently, only a short walk to the centre of town.

Very cosy with the fire easy to get going thanks to an abundance of well seasoned logs. Bed was very comfy and the views spectacular. Couldn't ask for more.

Would recommend to anyone.

Great chalet..we'll be back

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good holiday here. It's a really comfy, spacious chalet with amazing views of the mountains. The town centre is a stone's throw away if you want to go out at night, or if you stay in, there's an open fire and a big TV. It was good value for money, and we'll definitely be coming back.

Comfortable and Spacious Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 5 night stay at the property. It was spacious, modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water. It was very well equipped and met our needs perfectly. Communication with the owner, Esme was prompt and straightforward and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. The walk into town was 10-15 mins. We stored our skis in a locker in town, close to one of the main bus stops. This avoided us having to walk back to the chalet in our ski boots and lugging our skis with us which was a good move. The only downside was coming home!!

Perfect Choice!

  • 5 of 5

Having never experienced a skiing holiday before, we were somewhat in the dark. Fortunately, we found this little gem, along with it's fantastic owner! This is an absolutely beautiful fully equipped chalet within walking distance of town centre & it made our dream of the perfect Christmas a reality. Esme was amazing, she was in constant contact to ensure everything ran smoothly & her help with booking ski equipment & lessons was invaluable. Thoroughly recommended!
