Why Jonathan Law chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc

The location of this property is incredible - you will not find another chalet in the whole valley with such a fairytale, winter wonderland location - but 5 minutes on foot has you in central Argentiere or to les Grands Montets ski station

Quite literally the perfect ski holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the chalet is stunning. Just the right mix of traditional ambience with modern features - like the hot tub and sauna.

Jon and his team couldn't have been more hospitable and took care of our every need. James our chef whipped us up daily delights that frankly I would have expected from a Michelin star restaurant.

We are already planning a second visit for next year. Highly recommended.

Outstanding hospitality, food & service

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying with Jon and the team. Outstanding as usual but this year was totally amazing. The food quality and menus were as good as it gets. Nothing too much, kids loving their food and the addition of the sauna..... Wow.

A perfect christmas

  • 5 of 5

A Chalet in the snowy mountains and a family to go in it. I think that's the perfect christmas. wonderful hosts and wonderful food. It should be on everyone's bucket list. I only wish we could do it every year, you don't even need a tv and if you forgot to bring the presents don't worry because believe me you won't notice!

A cosy chalet with excellent service and fun skin

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little chalet to stumble across! Not only does it have a hot tub and a sauna but the option of skiing in/out from des grande montets was quite the perk, weaving through the woods. The service was impeccable with excellent food every night and a very helpful bunch who ran the chalet. They organised everything for us with the best suggestions on where to do, what to do, which instructors to use e.t.c. This was hands down the best ski holiday I have been on. It was perfect for a holiday with friends and what reasonable value too!
