We purchased the property from Jackie beginning of December 2013. Have always loved the variety of skiing available in Chamonix and have challenged ourselves with Valley Blanche on more than one visit. Our teenage children are keen snowboarders and feel that the situation of the property will offer us skiing in the winter and mountain biking and walking in the summer.
Short downhill walk to Bellevue lift in the morning. When returning to the Apartment, you can exit the Kandahar run from the bridge to the road where again there is a short walk downhill to the Apartment. Close to Ski bus, excellent bakery, deli, bar, coffee shop and restaurants. In the summer there is a south facing garden for sunbathing/relaxing.
Les Houches has its own train station, which is 15 minutes walk from the apartment.When the Station Ticket Office is not open, you can buy your ticket on the train.You can access the ski areas of StGervais and Megeve. The Train will also take you to Sallanches and from here you can access Paris,Lyon and Geneve. In the other direction, you can access Chamonix and Le Tour.
