Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Argentiere visit was really a great trip - too short. The apartment was very flexible with our group 4 adults and 2 kids. There was great views from every window in the apartment and seemed to have everything we needed in there.

There was the option to use the garage but easy enough to park in at the train station directly across the road from the place. The village itself was a very busy little center with all the necessary shops, chemist, bars, some great restaurants, and supermarket. The bus was immediately outside our apartment also so no one needed to drive.

Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

As a frequently traveling family, I've had the opportunity to stay at many different places and I have to say that this apartment is beautiful. The owner has clearly invested time and effort into it. I don't often write reviews and the ones that I read I'm wary of but whoever is interested in renting this, I'll have to say that you will NOT be disappointed.

Not only is this apartment beautiful, modern and clean but the owner was always available if we had any questions or needed anything. Fantastic!

We are a family of skiers and were disappointed we didn't get to ski bc the lifts weren't open yet so the town was basically shut down and there wasn't much to do.

We arrived at night and neither the bus driver we were on or a second bus driver present at our bus stop were willing to help us find a local restaurant where our keys were waiting. The owner had given us excellent instructions but we got somewhat turned around.

We were left on our own and eventually found the place. The staff at Office Bar restaurant (where our keys were waiting) were VERY helpful and one of the gentleman (possibly from England bc of his British accent) went so far as to carry my younger daughter's suitcase thru the snow to the apartment.

Very kind people that went the extra mile for us but BEWARE of asking help from the bus drivers or the village locals. They will not help! Go to Office Bar restaurant if you're English speaking and need help.

Also BEWARE, if you do not rent a car, that you'll need to figure out bus routes and times bc the last bus from Chamonix to Argentiere leaves around 7:50pm and if you get stuck in Chamonix you will NOT find a taxi and people will not be willing to help.

That was the only downside to our experience: very unfriendly people and you will be on your own!

Great property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent few days in this apartment and everything was perfect, fully equipment, clean and very comfortable. Very good contact with owner. In close neighborhood there was bus and train station, bars, restaurant and few shops. By car you can reach chamonix in 5 minutes. We can truly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful alpine base

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely modern apartment in fine condition located in a busy holiday village. Beautiful walks are on the doorstep & Chamonix & it`s attractions are a short train ride away. Great service from Wendy and we got to meet Cassandra at the end - a brilliant time had by all!

Perfect apartment; perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect stay in this apartment, topped with the most fantastic ski conditions too. The apartment is conveniently located for everything; ski bus outside the door, train station over the road, lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance, a local supermarket and bakery just up the road. We parked the car on arrival and there it stayed for the week (well apart from our trip to Courmeyer). The apartment is fabulously comfortable with all the mod cons you could wish for. The en-suite drench shower was very welcoming after a day on the slopes. A very homely apartment that has been thoughtfully furnished by Cassandra with the added touch of breathtaking views over the mountains and superb ski areas. We shall return without a doubt.

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as a group of 5 for a long weekend. Whilst I couldn't ski because of an injury prior to our trip, the apartment was perfect in terms of location, facilities and luxury. The views of Mont Blanc and the Argentiere ski area are just stunning from any of the 3 balconies in the apartment. Ski bus stops outside and is regular throughout the day. Altho the guys only got skiing in Chamonix for one day due to wind there was enough in Le Tour, especially on first day as they got their ski legs, and Argentiere altho it was a little more difficult. Beautiful little village with some great wee bars and restaurants for apres including Le slalom, and the Stonebar, and bakeries/supermarkets a stones throw away. A brilliant stay and Cassandra the owner will give you a very warm welcome. Look forward to going back again some day.
