About Mountain Base - Andy

Property Manager: Based in Chamonix since 2004, Mountain Base is a fully registered French business run by Andy, Andie and Matt. We are one of the only British run businesses in Chamonix to hold the Carte Professionnelle (no. 1497/07), which obliges us to maintain a Garantie Financière (cash bond) against which all our clients are financially protected. During the years, we have built up one of the largest rental portfolios in the Valley, from studios to large chalets, from les Houches to le Tour. Our team and partners are the best in the Valley and are here to make sure your stay is an enjoyable, memorable and hassle free experience.

Our philosophy: Professionalism and service, in a nutshell. From a speedy response to your enquiry through to on-hand service in resort, our team are at your disposal. Our office is in central Chamonix, so we are on hand to advise you throughout your stay and organise any little extras that you need. We have also invested a great deal in our bookings system, giving you real time availability, online booking and, uniquely, the ability to manage your booking online through to the point of arrival.

Services: Our team will be able to organise anything you need, before, during and even after your stay. Whether it be pre-ordering ski passes, discounted equipment hire, ski lessons, mountain guiding, private chefs, masseuses, bike hire - you name it, we can organise it!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 90 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : les 3 Chamois at 120 Metres Nearest Ferry : Calais at 900 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Chamonix at 4 Kilometres Nearest Train : Chamonix at 350 Metres Nearest Motorway : le Fayet at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : les 3 Chamois at 120 Metres Nearest Ski : Planards (nursery only) at 200 Metres Car: not necessary

Blaitière is situated just to the south-east of the town centre, adjacent to the 'les Planards' nursery slopes, on Chemin de la Cascade. It is 450 metres on foot to Avenue Michel Croz, the start of the main shopping streets in Chamonix.

The nearest supermarket is Casino in the town centre (650 metres) or Garage du Betty (same distance), which will soon become a Carrefour Extra store. There are a couple of restaurants and bars within 200 metres, but the main choices are in the town centre.

For access to the skiing, the nursery slopes of les Planards are a short walk away. For the main ski areas, the nearest is Brévent, just to the north of Chamonix centre, 1500 metres away (3-4 minutes by car or bus). The nearest bus stop is 200 metres away at Gare du Montenvers, with the main train station 450 metres away.

Golf: There are several good quality golf courses in the local area, including Evian (venue for the European Masters), Esery and Bossey as well as several other mountain courses, all within an hour's drive. However, Chamonix has its own golf club, 5 km to the east of the town centre, in les Praz. The 18 hole course was designed by the world famous Robert Trent Jones Senior in setting between the Mont-Blanc range and the massif of the Aiguilles rouges. There can't be many courses in the world with views to rival the Chamonix course.

Green fees vary from low to high season and booking is possible from 24 hours in advance.
