About Dominic Gothard

We are a British family who are fortunate to have this amazing centrally located apartment in Chamonix, We would love to share this with other couples and families to experience everything that this all round resort has to offer.

Dominic Gothard purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Dominic Gothard chose Chamonix

I loved Chamonix from a small child and pointed the apartment out during a family holiday. I was lucky enough to buy the apartment years ago and now frequently visit with my family and friends.

What makes this apartment unique

Being centrally located, minutes from everything you could possibly want! Love Chamonix in winter or summer. We can't decide which season we love the best!

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was a lovely place! Location of the apartment is wonderful, and the scenery is outstanding.
