Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom | Sleeps 7 | Refurbished Nov 2013 | WiFi | Fireplace

A perfect ski apartment for friends and families of up to seven people. This apartment has arguably the best view from the massive roof top terrace of any apartment in Chamonix valley.

10 mins walk from town centre. Ski bus stops right outside. Off road parking. Lively restaurant and bar 100m from front door.

PROPERTY OVERVIEW

When it comes to big views Apartment Gaillands North is hard to beat! This spacious two-bedroom penthouse flat sits on the roof of an apartment block in the Les Gaillands area of Chamonix town.

With 70m2 of interior space, Apartment Gaillands North also benefits from a huge, sunny terrace that faces Mont Blanc and Aiguille de Midi and is almost as big as the apartment itself. Below the gardens of the Residence du Lac have lawns that lead to the lake itself, making for a peaceful and natural environment.

The local valley bus stops right outside and takes you the two stops into town.

The climbing crag of Les Gaillands (AKA 'The Guides' Crag) is a couple of minutes' walk away, as is Le Vert Hotel with its vibrant bar and restaurant.

INSIDE APARTMENT GAILLANDS NORTH

The apartment is reached by either the stairwell or the lift.

Inside are two double bedrooms, one with a door leading out onto the terrace.

The living area is a large, spacious room with a table for 6 people and a double sofa bed.

The building is centrally heated but also benefits from a wood burning stove for extra warmth in the winter months.

A TV with UK satellite and WiFi Internet offer entertainment.

The large south-facing terrace is reached from the main living area and contains a table for eating, an awning for shade and deck chairs.

A well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, four-ring hob, oven and fridge lead to the bathroom with a shower/bath and a washing machine.

The apartment also has a separate toilet.

Nice apartment, outstanding views of Mt Blanc and the Chamonix valley

  • 5 of 5

A pleasant apartment with fantastic views, we made good use of the owners high power binoculars to admire the scenery from the sun loungers on the large balcony.

Amazing views from this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this apartment was outstanding! The views from the rooftop deck were fabulous. Close to town and with the Côte card, was able to ride the train as many times as you want. Be aware, however, that you must exit the train before the last stop or you will be charged a fare! You can always hop back on when the next train comes. We did not and ended up paying 27 euros for about a mile trip. The apartment has everything you need, very neat and tidy. You will not regret your stay!

Amazing penthouse with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We have spent in penthouse three amazing weeks. It is really comfortable for 6 persons. Beautiful balcony with amazing view on Mont Blanc - perfect place for bbq and chilling after ski.

Appartment is beautifull, comfortable, very clean and well decorated, there is everything you need for perfect stay.

Location of the appartment is really the best - free parking near the house, bus stop in 1 min walk, center is in 10 mins walk - very quiet place.

Bob is very helpful - helped me to organize our vacation long before our arrival and asked all questions during our stay.

I will stay again :)

Thank you Bob and Mont Blanc Retreats!

Chamonix is both a world famous adventure sports mecca attracting skiers, snowboarders, climbers, paragliders and mountain bikers from around the world.

Situated at the foot of Mont Blanc, the highest point in western Europe, Chamonix is a thriving town with plenty to do for everyone. Chamonix high street sports fantastic bars, restaurants and shops and the town is just as frequented by sightseers and tourists keen to gaze up at some of Europe's most dramatic landscapes as it is by hardcore mountain enthusiasts.

Gaillands North is situated right at the end of the high street allowing you to walk into the heart of Chamonix in just a couple of minutes.

Skiing can be reached on foot or via the free bus service that circulates the valley linking the ski resorts of Le Tour, Grand Montets, La Flegere, Brevent and Les Houches.
