Guestbook comments from the manager
It’s been two weeks since our stay at Chalet Beaumont. We love the place very much and are still missing it! It’s just fantastic and extremely peaceful. No doubt that we had a very good place to stay during our time in Chamonix.

I would like to thank you for all your nice support before we arrived.

If I get the chance, I will definitely stay at Chalet Beaumont again. I will also recommend it to my friends if they’re visiting Chamonix.

We are Laura and Greg Hely Hutchinson and Chalet Beaumont has been our holiday home in the Alps since the summer of 2010. We live in the UK most of the year and simply love coming to Chamonix, and are so excited to share our wonderful holiday apartments with you! We come at all times of the year with our little boy, family and friends and simply cannot get enough of all the valley has to offer; sports, culture, shopping and eating.

Laura Hely Hutchinson purchased this chalet in 2010

Our decision to buy Chalet Beaumont came from our love of France, where we had both spent a part of our childhoods, a shared passion for the great outdoors and a dream to provide holiday accommodation which to each of our guests would feel like their own home-from-home in Chamonix - where they would want to come back to time and again.

We and our guests get to enjoy hiking, skiing, mountain biking, paragliding, snowboarding, rock climbing and so much more. The valley is often referred to as a Mecca for outdoor sports so what better place to come back to time and again?

Plus, when the weather sets in we appreciate the time to catch-up on some reading, play a game of Scrabble or watch a movie. We never get bored here!

Just a few minutes drive from Chamonix town and the ski lifts of Les Houches and Brévent, Chalet Beaumont offers the perfect combination of Alpine peace, tranquility and beauty with the essential access to shops, restaurants and an array of activities.

The view of the mountains and valley below is mesmerising - even friends who live in Chamonix find it breathtaking! Chalet Beaumont offers the natural quiet and calm that comes from being in the mountains; revitalising the senses and filling you with the wonder of nature.

Yet just a few minutes from the valley's main road and town centre, the location provides quick access and easy access to shops and restaurants and more importantly the ski lifts and a vast array of hiking and biking trails and climbing spots - many on our very doorstep.

Chalet Beaumont offers such a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing place to return to after a day exploring Chamonix!

Winter holidays in March 2013

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice stay in the appartment 7b. After a very friendliy communication before our arrival, we arrived at the appartment very late (1 a.m.). That wasn´t a problem because the manager Sarah provided a way to enter the house. The radiators were on and so we felt very comfy from the first moment. We were 6 people but the appartment was absolutely big enough to spend the days there. The apartment was clean, the bathroom much bigger than expected, the kitchen modern and contained everything you need. We also used the fireplace, which is very nice in winter. Wood was provided for one fire. You have to buy more wood for another campfires, but this shouldn´t be a problem. We all enjoyed our stay there and were glad to find an apartment with such a good view on the mountains and the town for such a cheap price. If you have any kind of problem or question you can be sure that the friendly manager tries to help solving/answering it. We enjoyed our stay and would love to come back. I can recommend this apartment to every group or family, who plans a short stay or longer stay with self-supply. Thank you for your hospitality. It was awesome.

Fantastic days in Chamonix!

  • 5 of 5
He spent five days in Chalet Beaumont in Chamonix last February, and we really had a great time there! The chalet is very clean, well located (5 minutes away from Chamonix centre) and very well equipped. We were a party of 18, and we could connect two of the apartments so we were almost all together, which was great. Sarah, the owner, was very helpful as well so everything was superb!
If I go back to Chamonix, I will stay again in Chalet Beaumont, no doubts!!

Car: recommended

The Chalet Beaumont apartments are situated in the quiet hamlet of Le Mont, just above Les Bossons, between the village of Les Houches and Chamonix town centre, which are both five minutes drive away. The chalet's views of the mountains and valley are stunning and take your breath away every time you see them...

SKI LIFTS

The distance by car from Chamonix's ski lifts are as follows:

- Brévent, in Chamonix town: five minutes

- Les Houches: 10 minutes

- Flégère: 15 minutes

- Grand Montets, in Argentière : 20 minutes

- Le Tour: 25 minutes

DRIVING IN CHAMONIX

We usually recommend having a car when staying at Chalet Beaumont as this really helps you to make the most of your time in the valley as Chamonix is more spread out than most mountain resorts. With lots of free parking at the chalet, a straightforward drive into the valley from the motorway and car parks at all the ski lifts it is very easy to get about by car in Chamonix.

ON FOOT AND BY BUS

Walking down from the chalet there are three local restaurants: Le Tremplin, La Cremerie du Glacier and l'Hôtel Aiguille du Midi; all are a 5-15 mins walk from Chalet Beaumont. There is also a bus stop 10 minutes away, just opposite La Cremerie du Glacier. The bus will take you into Chamonix town and to the Flégère ski lift. The train station of Les Bossons is a 15 minute walk down the hill and in the warmer months it is a lovely 30-45 minute stroll into town. As the bus service stops at about 7.30pm you would need to book a taxi back after this time. Please bear in mind that it is a relatively steep walk back up to the chalet so add 10 minutes for walking back.

Going up from the chalet, you can enjoy a 45 minute hike up to a viewing platform overlooking the glacier and if you peer hard, you may see ice climbers risking life and limb amongst the awesome crevasses and pyramids of ice. There is also a chair-lift which opens in the summer season taking visitors from the valley floor directly to the viewing platform and the Buvette du Glacier des Bossons, a pleasant café where you can get a drink and a snack whilst enjoying the stunning views.

Continuing on, now a more serious route, you will eventually come to the junction of the two glaciers, Bossons and Taconnaz, where you can marvel at the spectacular views of Mont Blanc's ice falls. Some of the most famous hikes in the valley begin on our doorstep and indeed the first ascent of Mont Blanc, by Jacques Balmat and Doctor Paccard, started from our hamlet in 1786.

Notes:
This apartment is on the 1st floor of our chalet but is accessed from the road above so please note that there are several flights of steps to be walked down to get to the apartment. In the summer it is possible to park across the meadow and walk across but this is still not ideal for anyone with mobility issues. We offer true mountainside accommodation!
