This is a 5th floor apartment with lift access and is only a five minute walk from the Brevent ski lift and a one minute walk from the bus stop to get free transfers to go to all the ski areas. It is also just 2 minutes walk from the shops, bars and restaurants of Chamonix centre.
The Ski Locker is located just outside the door of the apartment.
There is outside parking available in the private Majestic car park.
There is no extra charges for towels, linen, final cleaning or holiday taxes.
But we do take a €200/£200 damage deposit on arrival which is given back shortly after you leave.

This apartment is the nicest ski accommodation we have stayed in, we have stayed in ski accommodation in Canada, Austria and various places in the USA, but this was by far the best. It was well set up, very spacious and the kitchen is very modern and well set up. The apartment also was very bright and sunny with the high ceiling. The building is amasing with the huge corridors and the great location. Wonderful experience
