Chalet les Drus is situated just to the east of the centre of les Houches, 10 minutes walk (800 metres) from the town square. It is in a quiet residential location at the end of a private no-through road.
The nearest supermarket is Shopi in the centre of les Houches, with the main Super U supermarket just a little bit further away (850 metres) towards Chamonix. The nearest bar and restaurant of note is le Delice, 550 metres away, with several other choices in les Houches itself. The centre of Chamonix, with other possibilities, is 7kms away.
For access to the slopes, it is recommended to have a car, albeit there is a bus stop at the main road, 250 metres away. The nearest skiing is at Bellevue in les Houches, 1.7km away, with Brevent in Chamonix 8kms away.
Other Activities: Rock Climbing
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.
