Guestbook comments from the manager
"We had an awesome stay in your chalet. We felt comfy in the apartment from the first moment. What we liked most was the contact before our arrival. It was very personal and friendly. Any question we had was answered quickly. It is good to know you have someone on the other end of the line you can ask whenever there´s a problem. Thank god there wasn't any because the organisation was excellent. We really enjoyed our time there and we would love to come back. Thank you for this nice contact and your hospitality."

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 apartment 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!

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 ground 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!
