Well equipped and comfortable chalet
We stayed for a week at the end of March 2019. The chalet is very well equipped, plenty of kitchen utensils, seating and loads of games and puzzles to keep everyone entertained at the end of a day's skiing.
It's a short walk to the bus stop, and near the train station.
Locally there are 2 boulangeries and a small supermarket, open every day, note it's only open in the morning on Sunday's, which is well stocked, and is great for self catering. We had 2 non skiers who found plenty to do within the local area. It was great to be able to put boots on and walk out through the garage onto the road up a slope, no steps. Austrian twin beds were interesting! Suffice to say, they may need a revamp soon as a bit saggy, bedding was clean and duvet very warm, all other linens very clean as was the whole chalet.
Highly recommend this apartment/chalet.
Many thanks for your review. We note your comments and these are helpful to us in trying to maintain and improve the standard of the apartment.
Lovely property very clean everything you could need and great location.
Cosy and relaxing
We found it ideally located for walking and cycling and the chalet was the perfect place to return for cosy nights by the log fire.
Great location, quiet, spacious, warm and well kitted out. Great place to stay with friends or family. Would stay there again. Owners very helpful with queries.
Nice chalet - well laid out
We used La Petite Aiguille as a base for a week walking in the area. Chalet was spotlessly clean and arrival instructions were easy to follow. Having an underground car park was great for unloading as the chalets parking leads directly into the lower floor where three of the four bedrooms are located.
Kitchen is well equipped with plenty of glasses, mugs etc and decent amount of work surface. The lounge is open plan with the kitchen and dining area and is comfortable. All in all a great place to come back to after a day's activity.
There is a bar next door to the development - the Randonneurs - which has an old fashioned atmosphere and a bit of a grumpy owner. Also - on the Chamonix Road, about 2 minutes walk away, a lovely friendly bar called La Yaute - good beer, burgers, steaks etc.
As a base for walking La Petite Aiguille was great - we used a hire car to get to start/finish points mostly, but also used the local train (about 10 minute walk) which runs to Chamonix and also east to Switzerland and was quite cheap.
Joy, the owner, dealt with an early teething problem caused by a breakdown somewhere in the communication chain incredibly quickly. All in all I would highly recommend.
Really comfortable traditional chalet - everything provided for.
We had a group stay for 6 at the chalet and cannot fault Joy and Mike for the information provided prior to our departure - it made finding the chalet and tips for the area to eat/drink really easy. The chalet itself over two levels worked very well with the two large ensuites a great size. Plenty of bathrooms, and we all loved the fire! It's set back so is very quiet, nestled under the slope and trees and the valley.
The chalet is a short walk to some great restaurants and a great bar 'La Yaute' is 2 mins walk. We hired a boot/ski locker at Sanglard sports which meant we could wander up in shoes to the ski lifts in about 8 minutes. A great stay had by all.
