About Diane Coombes

My name is Diane and I have owned the apartment for 12 years

I skied and raced for the Navy and qualified as a ski instructor during this time so I can help with all your enquiries about skiing for beginners up to advanced level. When buying the apartment I ensured it was in an ideal situation for the slopes,restaurants and ski hire which I think all the reviews confirm

Diane Coombes purchased this apartment in 2006

great apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was plenty big enough for the seven adults in our party, even at feeding time. Access through the underground garage works well as its a short walk from the cable car or chair lift (which is free - no lift pass required) and with the use of the garages for storing equipment instead of having to take it in the lift to the ski lockers. The bedrooms were a perfect size and having single beds in all rooms but one which also had bunks was a plus. The kitchen has everything required to knock up a feast with the bonus of a dishwasher.

Les Houches has plenty to offer skiers and boarders of all abilities and the free buses make accessing the rest of the valley really easy. The village is pretty quiet in the evenings but there are restaurants and a few bars if you want to spend a night away from the apartment, there are also night buses that run to and from chamonix town. The Kitsch Inn is well worth a visit after your final run into the village, its located next to the cable car and has great food and live music from 4pm every day.

i would hesitate to book this apartment again, it was perfect and the owner was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful.

A great place to stay in Les Houches

  • 5 of 5

With any skiing holiday it's the small things that make all the difference provided the apartment is everything that you hoped for which indeed it was. Booking communication was great, we had the keys early meaning travel delays (yes it was that Saturday!) didn't affect our arrival arrangements. There are two garages providing lots of space for a car and all the kid's race equipment, the double aspect views were great, being on the top floor means the apartment is quiet, the wifi works; the list goes on.

We will definitely be back next year.

Lovely homely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family enjoyed our stay in this lovely good sized apartment. It is in a great location just a couple of minutes from the local shops, bars, bus stop (which regular bus service runs to and from Chamonix) and cable car! With a cosy open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area it was great for socialising with our friends in the evenings. All 3 nicely decorated bedrooms are great sizes for accommodating any ages or groups.

This was perfect accommodation for us to stay for when we went skiing during the day and to return to at night as it is close to the cable car taking you to the slopes and has all the facilities needed, we are definitely planning to return here again soon!

Fantastic apartment - home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic time .... The apartment was absolutely fab... We couldn't have asked for more. Very comfortable and everything that we needed for a family of 5! The kids aged 10,6 and 5 were delighted .... Sky TV .... Wifi .... And skiing !!!! I would recommend this apartment to anyone ... Have told my colleagues in work. Short distance to the ski lift, lovely restaurants and bus nearly outside the door.

This year had a fall and ended up in cast from Wednesday, the fact the apartment was so comfortable and accessible ensured the holiday continued for all.

Thank you again Dianne. Looking forward to next year if recovery is 100% :-)

Spend a wonderful week skiing in perfect conditions made even better by staying in Chalet Whymper. The website description and pictures are accurate but cannot re-create the lovely atmosphere, light and spacious lay-out of the apartment which was well suited to us as 5 adults and 2 children. The views are fantastic! The apartment is modern and well equipped and Diane's pre and post booking advice and information was very helpful.

The location is very peaceful yet only a couple of minutes walk from the BelleVue cable car accessing the whole of the Les Houches ski area and several bars and restaurants and a supermarket are on your doorstep - try the Kitch Inn - excellent and very friendly.

Have recommended to friends and would certainly return again for skiing but would also be great for a summer trip.

wonderful birthday week Linda

  • 5 of 5

Another great week in Les Houches. Great accommodation comfortable ,clean,well equipped and with an amazing view.We had fantastic weather for January lots of sun and good snow conditions.The close proximity to the main ski lift is a real plus no walking miles or catching buses at the end of the day.

After a hot shower(plenty of hot water) there is a good choice of restaurants within walking distance or a well stocked local supermarket for those lucky enough to have a keen cook with them as we did this year a real bonus.!

We have also spent a week in this lovely area in the spring still lots to do again the nearby lift gives great access to the mountains for walking ,mountain biking etc.Wonderful spring the high meadows.

Whatever the season I can recommend Chalet Whymper .The owner is very helpful and and accommodating making sure that everything is as it should be on your arrival and throughout your stay.
