About Cassandra Tuxford

We are an Australian Family living in Zurich. We all love to ski and hike so the Chamonix Valley is a fantastic playground for us all to explore and grow into as our children get older.

Cassandra Tuxford purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Cassandra Tuxford chose Argentière

This apartment is great for the picturesque views from all windows. It has all the comforts of home away from home..... It has a great village feel and the locals are really friendly.

We also love that it has great access to the Grand Montets ski lifts and hiking is literally at the back door.

What makes this apartment unique

The building has a beautiful French character on the outside then inside it's all modern.

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.

Comfortable and clean apartment in central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of nights and were really happy with the property. It is spacious, clean, well maintained and nicely furnished. The kitchen has everything you would want and more. The location is central with plenty of parking opposite the apartment and a couple of minutes walk to the local Super U and other shops. Communication was easy, quick replies, flexible and really friendly. Will gladly stay again if available.

Lovely apartment, amazing views, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this lovely apartment. A perfect base location for exploring the area. Cassandra and Wendy were great to work with. We would definitely stay there again when in the region. The bedrooms and bathrooms were great for two couples. Kitchen amenities were great as well.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, fully-equipped apartment in a beautiful location. The views are gorgeous, the property is nicely decorated and has everything you need, including the little things so many rental properties are missing, like hooks on doors to hang your clothes and towels. Hot water was plentiful, and the wifi worked perfectly, both frequent problems in European rentals. The floors are heated, and there is an actual tumble dryer, which is almost impossible to find in Europe. Good closet space, free parking in the train station across the street and several restaurants close by, including one in the same building. Chamonix, with many restaurants, is a ten minute drive. The owner, Cassandra, and the local manager, Wendy, were both great to work with. I highly recommend this property!

good location but some road noise; ok size for 4; average interior, unfinished entrance

  • 4 of 5

The property is well located for access to Grand Montets lift station. It's directly opposite Argentiere SNCF railway station on the first floor of a converted former old hotel. It sits directly above La P'tit Verte, an excellent local restaurant (reservation advised). From the outside it appears the development is not quite finished. The main bedroom overlooks the main road with some vehicle noise at night though all windows are double glazed. It's a fairly new apartment, reasonably well decorated. It's quite well equipped with an excellent coffee machine. There were a few issues eg only two of four hotplates on hob were working. The apartment was clean and well presented on arrival. Bedrooms a reasonable size for a skiing property in France though quilts a bit small for a 186cm (6' 2") occupant. Bathrooms well appointed with good overhead shower in main bedroom en suite and less good in other bathroom. Owner was responsive and efficient throughout the booking and arrival process. Undercover parking available next door for an extra €50 but very tight parking space. Overall, a good property that fell just short of five stars for us because of maintenance issues and road noise.

Great location, beautiful apartment in fantastic town. 10/10

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by wendy when we arrived who showed us around and gave us all the info we needed re the apartment and local amenities. The apartment is beautiful, in great condition and a brilliant location. We had a fantastic 3 night break and the restaurant below was terrific. We would recommend this property for anyone visiting the Chamonix valley-it was very quiet at night too. Very comfortable and very well equipped. Thanks so much Cassandra-we will be back.

Argentiere is a quite alpine village with some of Chamonix’s Valley best skiing on the Grands Montets which is within walking distance from the Le Globe apartment. This gives access to high mountain hiking and mountain biking in the summer time. The apartment also has some great local bars and restaurants on its doorstep.
