About the property

Sleeps 6/7. 3 bedroom penthouse apartment, central Chamonix. Fantastic balconies

Penthouse apartment, 3 beds, 2 bathrooms, wood burning fire, amazing mountain views with 2 large balconies.

1. 4 minutes walk to purchase lift pass and ski bus stop for access to Argentiere, Le Tour and Les Houches ski areas.

2. Bus stop is 2nd stop of bus route, so almost guaranteed to get a seat (very important when holding skis and with children)

3. 5 minutes walk to apres ski, restaurants and town centre.

4. Skiing with small Children, 8 minutes walk to the Planards ski area, ideal for those very new to skiing, or introducing small children to skiing for the first time.

5. Lovely apartment, amazing long range views from the large balconies.

6. Top apartment, on 3rd floor with short, wide, easy on the legs steps, apartment has private access allowing you to leave boots outside apartment door to warm for the next morning.

7. Catering is available on request, freshly cooked food is brought to the apartment for evening dinner etc, ask for details.

A few minutes walk to the nearest lift, ski hire, apres bars, restaurants. Free Town bus stops outside the apartment, great for bringing home the shopping. This apartment is the top apartment in a chalet building, it is on the 3rd floor but the stairs are well lit, short and wide and easy on the legs. It has private access on the 3rd floor, this means you can leave boots etc outside the apartment door and they are warm for the next morning. The apartment has a traditional feel with wood beams and vaulted high ceilings, but all the modern facilities with BOSE surround sound, Sky & French TV with great wireless internet. The balconies are a real feature offering views over the Town, the Brevent Ski area, and in the distance Les Houches Ski area. From the large lounge and double bedroom window, you do not feel 'overlooked'

3 bedrooms: 1 large bedroom with ensuite and 2 single beds. 1 bedroom with 2 single beds, 1 bedroom with full height windows and a double bed. Sofa bed in lounge.

Free designated parking outside apartment building.

Cozy log fire.

£200 refundable deposit per week booked.

Chamonix is probably best known as the skiing and alpine capital of the world. A 'buzzing' town, equally busy during the Summer and Ski season with a wide array of sporting and sedate leisure activities. Peace and quiet, great nightlife, and superb scenery that can be enjoyed at whichever pace suits you. Only 1 hour from Geneva Airport with regular and cheap shared transfers, Chamonix is the perfect place to come for a weekend break or a week's holiday. This traditional town is at the foot of Mont-Blanc and hosted the first winter Olympic Games in 1924.

Fabulous location

Well equipped

Significantly more space than most ski accommodation - although bedrooms small to manouvre around plenty of storage ,

Bonus this year as very little snow in Chamonix we found we could bus into Courmeyer.

The ski pass was discounted and enabled us to use the luge and ice skate for free. The town Christmas markets were on too. The shuttle bus around town stops on the side road for the chalet, which saves walking in ski boots.

Highly Recommend

A good choice !

  • 5 of 5

We ( family of 5 ) stayed in the summer and we really liked the location, as we had no car it was no problem to reach easily the shops ; restaurants and train station ( yet no noise disturbance of the train .. )In front of the door stops a free bus " le mullet" that can even take you a bit further to the other side of town. It was a quiet and safe and clean area, and a carrefour supermarket is a short walk away behind the appartment (we used the shortcut to reach it) .The fact that it had three bedrooms was a plus so all kids had there own room ; the rooms are not large but just perfectly fine, and have build in cupboards . The ceiling is sloping so just be aware if you are very tall. I can imagine the woodstove being really cosy in the winter too. We also found that the neigbours / other people in the building are all very quiet which was nice, and chamonix is a nice town. Oh and indeed nice views from the balcony, where you can sit and enjoy. thank you dawn .

Nice quiet appartment with great views and good location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 5 nights with my two teenage boys and would definitely recommend this apartment to others. The location is good - quiet and not in the centre of town, but only a short (5-10 minute) walk to all the shops and bustle. The apartment was clean and well presented, and although not huge, it had everything we wanted. There are amazing views from the balcony, the kitchen and the main bedroom. Overall, very nice!

Owner's Response: We made a last minute visit to Chamonix in August and the apartment was occupied so we booked into a central hotel. The weather was fantastic and most hotels do not have air conditioning so we needed the doors open at night. How we missed the quiet location of this apartment, it was difficult sleeping with the town noise whilst staying at the central hotel. The extra 3 or 4 minutes walking to the apartment is worth the peaceful sleep. Thank you for your review.

My family of 6 had a wonderful stay in Chamonix. The apartment was perfect for us and we loved our trip to Chamonix. The apartment was very close to the town. We were able to take trips to the glacier and take the gondola to Mont Blanc. We loved being able to relax at the apartment and to enjoy the sun on the decks. We had everything that we needed. We only ate one meal at the apartment and we were able to buy our groceries in town. The town had so many nice restaurants. While there was not a lot of extra space in the bedrooms, it was nice to have three separate rooms and they worked perfectly for our family. We had a small issue with the hot water being turned off, but the owner responded within minutes and we were instructed how to flip a switch to correct it. So, there was absolutely no problem.
