About the Owner

I live in England with my husband, 2 daughthers and our dog and 2 horses. We love to spend as much time as possible in Chamonix as we love to ski in the winter months but also love the mountain walks, parapente, rafting and golfing that is available during the warmer months.

A lovely appartment with a very friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the appartment with our two children and had a great time.

It was spotlessly clean and the bedding a towels that were provided were all good quality.

Lise, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome.

The appartment is well situated, just 200m from the lifts and shops and Bellevue.

Superb apartment 1 min walk to ski lifts

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodation provided. All rooms were very neat and clean, spacious and the whole apartment felt very cosy and modern, we felt very happy to be there. Also note it has balcony for the romantic breakfast with breath-taking view.

It was ideal for 2 couples as there were 2 double rooms each with double bed (which were very comfortable) and the upstairs room had another single bed and extra folded bed. So ideal for 4 people but can fit up to 6, with 2 toilets/2 bathrooms - does have powerful shower with hot water so perfect. The flat itself was very warm so although we put the heating for a bit on when we got back from the skiing, we kept it quite low or switched off overnight (and I am normally always feeling cold here in the UK!) Kitchen had all major appliances including dishwasher.

Our car had a roof box so we didn't fit to the garage but left the car outside and had no problems at all.

Les Houches ski lifts - only 1 min walk; car drive to Chamonix was about 7 min. Bus drive - in ski pass but it was a bit of nightmare, definitely use the car if you can.

Speaking to the owner was another great experience, very helpful, caring lady who always helped us or responded very quickly when we had any question before or during our stay.

One last bonus - free wifi in the apartment and lots of DVD's to go through... :)

Chamonix is normally an expensive place but driving from Berkshire 4 in a car -this was the cheapest skiing holiday that we ever made, much cheaper than going with all inclusive deals and although we had to prepare our own breakfasts and sometimes dinner (supermarket in Chamonix), we still managed to eat out a few times. Just don't expect lots of buzzy bars/nights in Les Houches, you would need to get to Chamonix. Les Houches is more family or couple suited, it was perfect for us.

Thank you once again, looking forward to go back!

It offers a tremendous amount of challenging skiing with a vaste amount off piste but also offers very good beginner and intermediate options.

There is also free bus service to take you to the other 4 main ski areas, Le Tour, Brevant, Flegere and my personal favorite, Argentiere.
