Le Brevent 2 offers contemporary accommodation for up to 6 people in a desirable location.

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 18km 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 para gliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canoeing 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; a sports centre with an indoor and outdoor 50m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi... The list goes on!

Bonne appréciation, qqs détails à revoir
Les échanges pour la réservation mériteraient une traduction française.
L'accueil agréable et bien renseigné.
L'appartement était globalement propre à l'exception de la nappe qui nécessitait franchement un passage en machine. Chose que nous avons fait l'pm de notre arrivée.
J'ai déploré une batterie de casseroles inutilisables (le revêtement anti-adhésif était en miette et l'hygiène n'était du coup pas assurée).
Le lundi soir nous avons pu obtenir un petit fait tout et une mini casserole : insuffisant pour le cuisinier que je suis !
Enfin, malgré une boite d'ampoules et de spots disponible dans l'appartement, nous n'avons pas pu obtenir le remplacement d'un spot dans l'entrée.
Petits points d'amélioration : équiper l'appart d'une machine Nespresso svp
