If you want to be a few steps away from the bustle of Chamonix, this apartment is in a really quiet neighbourhood with little traffic. The views are magnificent, surrounded by the whole panorama of the Mont Blanc massif and the Aiguille Rouge.
It is an easy 20 minute walk into Chamonix by a maintained path through the forest, 15 minutes to the Sports Centre and pool on the way, and 10 minutes to the golf course by the little village of Les Praz. Of course, by car it is only two to three minutes to town.
The owner is meticulous about maintaining the apartment impeccably clean, is easy to reach and approachable, and speaks English. I can't over-emphasize how comfortable it is...fully renovated two years ago...lots of light with a spacious open concept, well equipped kitchen, living room and dinning area with modern comfortable sofa and chairs. The bathroom, unlike many in France, has a full bathtub and standup shower. Plenty of closets and chest of drawers for storage and the two bedrooms are a good size.
No stairs. You just park outside the door and walk in. The sliding glass doors of the living room face south-west and open onto a full yard.
My wife and I stayed there this past winter and it was our best accommodations ever after many rentals in the Chamonix valley.
