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.

Simon and Paula purchased this apartment in 2013

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.

GREAT BASE FOR OUR SKIING WEEK

  • 4 of 5
Stayed in this apartment first week of February and would say is perfectly positioned for everything...ski lifts, shops, bars. Apartment was clean, warm, well equipped and we didn't find anything that was missing for a comfortable self catered stay. A real home from home. The welcome wine and beer was much appreciated...thanks. Communications with new owner Paula quick and easy although we had no need to contact them during our stay...perfect. Thanks again.

PERFECT MOUNTAIN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Great apartment, well positioned in the village, just a couple of minutes walk from the Bellevue Cable Car giving easy access to the mountains. There is also a lovely patisserie just across the road - perfect for those little treats after a hard day skiing!

The apartment is furnished to a high standard, has a well equipped kitchen and bedding and towels are good quality. Access is great with Geneva just over an hour away and with Chamonix just 10 minutes down the road it makes it the perfect holiday location.

Jackie was a delight to deal with and very helpful.

Looking forward to going back again soon!

EXCELLENT ALL ROUND

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is an excellent base for both summer and winter activities. It's close to the slopes and is an easy drive or bus ride into Chamonix if needed.
The interior of the place is in excellent condition and all the crockery etc is all thare and of good quality.
We had no issue with any part of our stay and would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to stay in the Chamonix Valley.
The underground parking and ski locker come in handy for your extra gear, bikes, skis & boots etc.
Jackie and Andy are always on hand and have great local knowledge.
We will be back at some point in the near future.
