Overview

Haute-Savoie Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3rd floor, 2 bedroom, central apartment with stunning views

Résidence les Alpes IV is a newly built residence set back from the main street in the centre of Chamonix. The apartment is located on the 3rd floor and opens into a spacious hallway with storage. The living area, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and WC are off this hallway.

The living area is open plan and very bright and airy with a dual aspect due to the apartment being in the corner of the building. The fitted kitchen is well equipped and there is a dining table. The lounge area has WIFI, flatscreen TV (french+UK channels) and there is a single sofabed meaning the maximum occupancy is 5 people. Two sets of glass doors open onto a balcony which runs the full length of the apartment. The first bedroom is a double with glass doors opening onto the balcony. The second bedroom is a flexible room meaning it can be set up as a double or twin beds. Both rooms have large wardrobes giving plenty of storage. The bathroom has a shower above the bath and a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a separate WC.

Throughout this apartment, there is a light, modern feel. The large balcony is south facing giving 180 degree views up to Mont Blanc, the Aiguille du Midi and numerous other peaks. The surrounding properties have gardens and the river runs below giving a tranquil feel just metres from the town centre.

The lift can be used to access the basement level of the building, where there is secure underground parking with 1 dedicated parking space, plus a ski locker.

Overall, the apartment is ideal for groups of 4-5 who appreciate the apartment's proximity to the many facilities that Chamonix has to offer.

Skiing and snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts only, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18 km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.

Summer and the rest of the year: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb paragliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canyoning and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; the sports centre has an indoor and outdoor 50 m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi, the list goes on.
