What makes this chalet unique

Although Chalet les Favrands is a fantastic property in its own right it is the separate apartment that helps to make it unique. This extra living space is ideal for grandparents, a couple or staff who are looking for some privacy. The large outdoor garden of the chalet is also a rarity and perfect for those with families.

Superb accommodation highly recommended and great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time here, the property is finished to a lovely standard and has great facilities. It's not too far from town and the lifts -about a 15 minutes walk.

Super chalet for family holiday!

  • 4 of 5

This really is a super chalet to stay at, and great for groups. We were two families of four and had a grandparent pop in for a few days.

Incredible views, plenty of space to relax in, close to town, and great hot tub! The location is private yet close to amenities, and of course really accessible to the transport network.

Negatives - Lighting system is a bit complex to work out, a knife sharpener would be good, also watch out for the lamppost in the middle of the drive entrance, judging by the dents in it, I wasn't the first to reverse into it! Finally the entertainment system could do with a modern upgrade that allows you to pair a phone to it for music purpose! This is purely constructive criticism, we really enjoyed the property, and as always enjoyed the fabulous town of Chamonix.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property, it is much appreciated. The chalet is in a super location which offers a peaceful retreat close to Chamonix town. It is great to hear the space worked well for your group and you enjoyed all the facilities. Thank you for the feedback, as we draw near to the end of the season we are reviewing potential improvements and will certainly take this into consideration. We hope we are able to welcome you here again in the future. Best wishes from the team at Mountain Base.

Stunning, modern chalet with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Chalet les Favrands this Christmas and would definitely recommend it. All but 4 of us were non-skiers so spent much of our time at the chalet. The property is just out of Chamonix itself but easily walkable to the town centre. The thing we really like was the living area, which is huge compared to many places we've stayed before and works really well from a social perspective. We were a large group and it suited us perfectly. My parents were also very grateful for the separate apartment which allowed them to escape from the kids and have their own space when it was needed! A small thing but a nice touch was the little Christmas tree that the resort team (Mountain Base) put up for us - we felt well looked after and the chalet was altogether perfect for our needs, we will certainly look to stay here next time we are in Chamonix. That's even mentioning the hot tub on the terrace which has the most wonderful views of the mountains and the glacier, the kids were in it for hours! Thank you Mountain Base.

Belle propriété appréciée par les petits et les grands

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons bien profité de ce beau chalet en famille.Nous n'avons pas beaucoup utilisé la voiture car le centre ville n'est pas très loin à pieds et les départs des sentiers de promenade sont à quelques mètres.

Les petits comme les grands ont bien apprécié le bain à remous après les ballades.
