Excellent location and a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Even though the review is coming in late after our summer trip to France in June, our stay is as fresh in our mind as it was last week. We enjoyed the scenic beauty of Chamonix right from outside our cottage and Florence was nothing but an exceptional host. She made our stay very comfortable and recommended things to do and places to visit. We even enjoyed the fresh lettuce and herbs from her cottage while we were there!

We are just waiting to return back to Chamonix and will be definitely staying at Florence's!

Owner's Response: Dear Ambrish and Meghana, Hope all is great for you, in San Francisco! Your future baby should arrive very soon. I wish three of you a lot of happiness. Thank you so much for your very kind "Appreciation" posted on this site. I am really moved and grateful. You both have been such wonderful hosts. I enjoyed every moment spent with you in Chamonix. I miss you and often think of you, back in beautiful California. Looking forward to greeting you again, one day, you and your baby, maybe in the main chalet, next door. In waiting, I wish you all the best. Your friend from Chamonix, Florence

Our Alps vacation was truly a dream vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We found Chalet Florence on this site...Florence was a dream to deal with from the first email I sent. She sent us all kinds of information, provided many suggestions on things to do, she reached out to her contacts to get us set up with heli-skiing, she provided weather updates leading up to our departure, fabulous directions and was waiting for us when we finally arrived - with a big French welcome hug! (we'd become very close email friends during the few weeks leading up and it was lovely to finally meet in real life!). The Chalet was our home away from home for the entire week. Florence showed us all the details of the Chalet and we had a welcome pkg waiting for us - homemade jam, yummy French wine and a few others things. The bed was SO comfy, if it weren't for the Alps calling our names it would have been so easy to stay in the Chalet and be cozy all week. We had a nice big tub to come home to soak in after our days on the mountain. Yummy nespresso each morning and even friendly neighbours to help push our car out of the snow the morning we got stuck :) The Chalet is perfectly located a nice, easy 5 minute walk to town. We arrived late in the evening and we weren't sure we'd make it to the grocery store in time to buy supplies for breakfast - when we woke up that morning, Florence left us eggs, butter and bread from her own personal kitchen. Chamonix is beautiful and everything is so close to walk to from the Chalet. We had a rental car and discovered that Italy was a short 20mins drive thru the tunnel and so that made our adenturing even more amazing. We skiied a different mountain every day and mother nature even decided to dump huge amounts of snow on us - it snowed for 36 hours straight! Thanks to Florence no doubt, I had asked her to speak to the snow gods for us and ensure lots of powder for our vacation!! On the last day of our vacation we finally had crystal clear blue skies and we finally made it up in the helicopter - AMAZING!!! And for the grand finale of the trip, we were finally visited by Florence's 'pet' deer! She had spoken about the deer and I was very excited to see...and she finally came on our last night to bid us farewell. We watched her eat right in front of the chalet window and Florence came out and the two of them put on a little show for us - Florence was speaking to her and called her over for more food and the deer actually followed her, I have no idea what Florence said to her, as it was all in French!!

Fantastic little place with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

We booked Mazot Florence at the last minute for UK half term week. It's in a great location, very quiet yet close to Central Chamonix. The mazot is full of character with lots of carved wood. It is basically a 1 room studio but is the perfect size for 2 people. There are plenty of features including a nespresso machine. It is probably 30% more expensive than an apartment, but worth it due to the character and quiet location. Many thanks to Florence for welcoming us warmly with wine and local jam!

Un séjour de rêve à Chamonix dans le chalet Mazot

  • 5 of 5

Nous ne pouvons que recommander très chaleureusement Florence et le chalet qu'elle propose à ses hôtes, nous y avons passé l'un des séjours les plus enchanteurs qu'il nous ait été donné de vivre !

Tout concourt à rendre le lieu magique, bien au-delà de ce que montrent déjà les photos ! Le chalet est particulièrement beau et raffiné, tout en étant incroyablement bien agencé et équipé, un véritable chalet 5 Etoiles ! Chaud et douillet, il crée un contraste incroyable avec le paysage alentour, aussi splendide que glacé. Dans un cocon de neige, le chalet ressemble à une carte postale et devient, le soir, lorsque toutes les petites lumières qui le décorent scintillent, un lieu hors du temps. Pour les plus chanceux, tels que nous, les biches et leurs petits faons viennent rendre une petite visite de courtoisie chaque soir ou presque, jetant parfois un œil à travers la fenêtre. Nous l'avons vécu, c'est vraiment impressionnant. Le chalet est par ailleurs très bien situé, nous nous sommes toujours promenés dans Chamonix à pieds depuis celui-ci : il est pour ainsi dire en plein centre-ville (tout en étant "caché", à l'abri des curieux et du tumulte du soir en ville).

Par ailleurs, Florence est une personne particulièrement accueillante et sympathique, aux petits soins avec ses hôtes, tout en étant d'une parfaite discrétion. Elle s'improvise avec talent guide touristique et a su nous recommander des visites et activités adaptées, en fonction du climat quotidien, ce qui nous a été très utile pour profiter du séjour pleinement.

Ce séjour est idéal pour les couples en quête de romantisme qui recherchent un petit havre de paix dans un décor de rêve, notre plus belle Saint Valentin !

Merci Florence !

A Fairy Tale Wonderland come true!!!

  • 5 of 5

Shhhh! It’s a secret!

This hidden gem of a guesthouse-sized mini chalet comes with all the best that any fairy tale can offer—Hansel & Gretel come to mind. In a town famous for its 2 star hotels and chalets, Mazot Florence is instead awarded an amazing “4 Stars” by the French Accreditation Committee, and for good reason: It’s bursting with little surprises of every sort, every inch (or centimeter, if you like) well thought out, beautifully planned, with all the comforts of home and more in a small space that feels bigger and more spacious on the inside than it looks like it could possibly be from the outside. It’s a cozy retreat from the real world if there ever was one.

Add to that a friendly, ever-attentive yet discreet proprietress who always seems close at hand when needed, she’s a former journalist, fluent in French and English, and holder of French, Swiss and American passports, who seems to know everyone and everything about Chamonix, its environs and sports from firsthand experience and prominent family history. She’s the best resource in town.

Just as the main walking street of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc escapes the hubbub of downtown, this snug tributary crosses at a distance just far enough to guarantee continuous quietude. If you arrive by car, there’s a parking spot waiting for you. If you don’t arrive by car, you don’t need one—free bus passes take you where you want to go from a central stop that’s close by. The main Chamonix shops, restaurants, post office and town center are all within an awe-inspiring walk away. It’s easy to get carried away with the spectacular scenery, so take care not to bump into things along the way.

Our experiences here and those of close friends in on the ‘secret’—world citizens all—dub this place among the finest you’ll find anywhere on this planet. It’s a one-off.

Please don’t tell anyone, though—it’s a secret we want to keep for ourselves.
