The house is located right at the gondola for the Courmayeur ski area, however I did not find that area very challenging and went every day to Chamonix. To get to Chamonix requires you to travel through a tunnel which costs about $75 round trip. Expensive but it is well worth the effort. We enjoyed our stay at this quaint house and the skiing at Chamonix was great. One can walk to a great gym and the town from the house. I would note that we had no hot water from Saturday, when we arrived to Tuesday morning. The landlord worked very hard to have a new boiler installed ASAP (unfortunately the on/off switch was inadvertently turned off Monday nite by the custodian otherwise we might have had hot water already on Monday nite). I asked the landlord to pro-rate those nights and she offered to return 1/2 of one nights stay which came to about $150 on a $2000/week stay. She was unhappy with my request and I thought better of it as perhaps this is something American's expect, not those from other countries, and so I rescinded my request. Please note that the third bedroom is approximately 8ft x 5 ft. She has a bunk bed in there so very little room for anything else.
