Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 6

Picasso is a two-bedroom, ground-floor holiday apartment to rent in the heart of Chamonix town. The apartment lies only 100m from the main street and 200m from the Le Savoy lift, yet, thanks to its position behind the church and the grounds around it that house the Guide’s office, it is as quiet a location as you will find this close to the heart of Chamonix.

The apartment has a south and west-facing garden that faces up on to Mont Blanc allowing guests privacy and tranquility

The sunny garden has comfortable chairs and a parasol for you to relax in and soak in the views.

The apartment benefits from a garage and a ski locker and is consistently one of our most booked properties both in summer and winter.

The apartment is normally set up as two double bedrooms, however there is the option to add a single bed to the second bedroom and one extra person again can sleep on the sofa bed in the lounge.

The apartment consists of:

An open-plan living area with large sofa that turns into a single bed, a dining table for six and a well equipped kitchen, and access to the garden.

Bedroom #1 - A double bedroom with 160cm bed with access to the garden.

Bedroom #2 - A double bedroom with 140cm bed and the option to add a single bed.

A bathroom with shower/bath, toilet and washing machine.

The apartment has private and secure underground parking in a lockable garage and there is the St Michel public car park (payable) just opposite the building.

A locked room (but shared with the rest of the building) allows you to store bikes and prams and contains the apartment's lockable cupboard for skis and snowboards in winter.

About Bob Drury - Mont Blanc Retreats

Mont Blanc Retreats Ltd is a British rental agency specialising in high-quality holiday rentals in and around the Chamonix Mont-Blanc valley

Why Bob Drury - Mont Blanc Retreats chose Haute-Savoie

Location is fantastic with the town and skiing just two mins walk from the apartment. There is parking, a garden and a ski locker.

Add to that the colourful boutique furnishing and decor and sunny garden with Mont Blanc views and this property is hard to beat for the price and facilities in central Chamonix

What makes this apartment unique

200m to ski lift and town

Guestbook comments from the manager

We felt very welcome here at the Picasso! We were even greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine, which was so nice. The location was AMAZING...could not have been better for our family of four. It was great to be on the ground level with the garden right out back so the kids could play in the snow safely while we drank wine inside! The apartment is right in town, near all the restaurants and bars, yet was very quiet. Only a two minute walk to the grocery store, right next to the ski rental shop, and within walking distance to the Savoy ski school for our kids and we could take off up the mountain ourselves from there. We were worried about the bell tower from the church keeping us up at night, but we only heard it during the day! We slept great and the master bedroom bed was very comfortable, with a gorgeous view right out to the church.

Appartement idéal au centre et au calme!

  • 4 of 5

Appartement très bien situé en plein centre, donc où on peut tout faire à pied. Idéal pour participer aux courses du Marathon du Mont Blanc ou de l'UTMB, puisque à 1 minute du départ! La cuisine est très bien équipée. Le jardin est agréable et spacieux avec une vue magnifique! Très facile de charger et décharger la voiture devant la porte d'entrée, puis on la descend au garage. Possible pour 5 personnes, une 6ème si elle est petite (ou un enfant) pour la 2ème place dans le canapé.

Very nice location in the heart of Chamonix

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the apartment. The location was really convenient. The only drawback was they hadn't gotten the heat on in the building so it was cool in the apartment. Bob was very accomodating by bringing us a heater

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and for staying with us in Apartment Picasso. Like you, we were annoyed that the building management company weren't quicker to turn the heating on when they got caught out by an early autumn cold-snap. It's all turned on now, working well and toasty warm for winter. Hope to see you all here again sometime.

Great location and lots of space

  • 4 of 5

A very positive impression - our feelings about the flat really echo those of Marcus S. in September 2014.

We also thought it offered us generous living space, especially for a holiday rental, and the private garden was a real bonus.

As we we were two couples , we would have preferred a double bed in the second bedroom (as advertised at the time) rather than the recently installed bunk bed, but it wasn't a major problem.

Perfect Chamonix location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for a week in the summer of 2014. It is only 100m from the main square and tourist office so access to town is really easy. Surprisingly it's not noisy though as you have enough distance between you and the high street so as to not hear any late night revellers.

The garden is really handy as it us sunk behind a wall and hedge so no one looks in on you.

We really appreciated the garage too as free parking is an issue in Chamonix.

The management company were easy to deal with, the transaction was simple and the place spotless.

We'd happily recommend this place to friends and would love to come back and stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review. We agree thatApartment Picasso is a fantastic option for people wanting to stay in Chamonix and be close to the hustle and bustle of the town, but away from the noise of the bars and restaurants. This and Apartment Solomon http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p1507960 are the closest we have to the town centre and the ski lift at Le Savoy and both are worth considering if you looking for an apartment of this size in Chamonix.

Excelente. Centrico, confortable y las mejores vistas.

  • 5 of 5

Este es nuestro segundo año consecutivo en este apartamento... y repetiremos.

Gestión y amabilidad implecables por parte del equipo.

En el mismo centro de Chamonix y con las mejores vistas del Mont Blanc, las agujas y el Brevent.

Location

Nearest Ski
0.7 Kilometres
Ski Lift | Aiguille du Midi Lift Station

Chamonix is both a world famous adventure sports mecca attracting skiers, snowboarders, climbers, para gliders 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.

Apartment Rosy is situated in the heart of Chamnonix town just a minute from the shops, bars and restaurants and only 200m from the nearest ski lift.

A free bus service circulates the valley linking the ski resorts of Le Tour, Grand Montets, La Flegere, Brevent and Les Houches.
