About Jonathan Law

Marmotte Mountain is owned and operated by Jonathan Law. I am based in Chamonix full-time and i am an avid skier and snowboarder with more than twelve years spent in the Chamonix Mont-Blanc region. With a great passion and enthusiasm for the mountains, as well as an excellent knowledge of the local terrain, local facilities and access to the very best ski instructors and high mountain guides available within the Chamonix Valley, i am happy to assist with ensuring your stay with Marmotte Mountain is a truly memorable experience.

Why Jonathan Law chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc

You will find nothing else like it. It is a true winter wonderland with such an incredible setting. The gives the ambience of being tucked away deep in the secluded mountains but you can access the village of Argentiere on foot within a few minutes.

There is also the chance to have a ski in ski out option to les Grands Montets - via the cross country ski track.

What makes this chalet unique

Privacy - this chalet is incredibly private but still centrally located!

The grounds of the property are large and beautiful.

2 x mountain streams pass by the chalet providing beautiful sounds of cascading water. It is truly amazing!

Marmotte Mountain Retreat - best kind of retreat

  • 5 of 5

If only you could live like this forever. You wake up to a table laden with breakfast goodies, then you're transported to anywhere in the valley for morning of mountain fun, board or ski down to your reserved table in the best savoyard restaurants, more fun in the snow and then back to the chalet for afternoon tea (a cake straight out of the oven waiting on the table), the jacuzzi and wood-fired sauna with incredible views (an arm's length from an ample and varied supply of beverages) and then aperitifs by the fireplace before sitting down to an exquisite 4-course mean prepared by your own private chef. And whether you feel like skiing or boarding down the Aiguille du Midi, going to Italy to eat suckling pig at the base of the Mont Blanc, or you'd like your kids to learn to ski from the best instructors in France, you need only ask and it shall be done. I want to live here :)

Beautiful chalet, suberbly run company!

  • 5 of 5

Last time I stayed with Marmotte mountain in the Libelulle chalet with friends, we had a fantastic time and I vowed I would be back! This time I visited with my partner and we stayed in the 'retreat' chalet. The service was the same as I remembered (exceptional!) - the owner Jon simply couldn't have done any more for us and we were treat like family. We were lucky that even though it was the beginning of April when we arrived to the chalet it was snowing and it truly felt like a winter wonderland! The heating was on, the hot tub was ready and there was plenty of wood for the fire - what more could you want!? :) The chalet is in a perfect location, a hidden gem in the woods with easy walking distance to bars and restaurants (And my personal favourite - the cremerie). There's a small stream passing by and on our second day we were lucky to watch a chamois grazing outside (a type of deer) from the bathroom window, it really does feel very close to nature out there. We had a fantastic time, would recommend it to anyone, such a beautiful chalet and a superbly run company - Thank you so much to Jon and the Marmotte team, I'm sure we'll be back next year!

Living the dream for the forth time!!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to stay at Chamonix as we have stayed here 4 times in the past and all occasions we have stayed in four different chalets with Marmotte Mountain chalets.Each time has been a different experience but all equally the most amazing stays.I guess this is why we have returned 4 times.

Once again the cleanliness and level of quality is amazing through out the property.

We are a family of four and had the most relaxing time in the chalet.After a hard days skiing we enjoyed all the wonders of chalet sitting in the hot tub taking in all the most amazing view s and the serenity of the forest.

Our Chef and host were very friendly going above and beyond for our family.The kids were treated like king and queens as were we.The food was amazing , perhaps some of the best dining we have ever experienced and wines complimented the fine food.The manager Jon was outstanding in providing us with some local advice with restaurants ( lunch options as we had dinners in the chalet) and attractions in the area that just added to the experience.It is a short drive to Chamonix village of about 10 mins and Argenteire is less than 5 mins.

We had a great time skiing/ snowboarding the amazing slopes and the kids enjoyed the ski school as well..

I cant speak highly enough about this group and their chalets.

I guess if you have traveled all the way from Australia 4 times in 5 years it says a lot about our experiences.Lets hope there is lots more trips in the future!!

Great location. Shabby chic chalet!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. Hot tub and sauna and the raging fire were wonderful. Food was fab. Furnishings and bathrooms need updating for sure. The beds were not the most comfortable and if I owned it, I would replace much of the furniture and modernise all the bathrooms. The downstairs TV/bedroom should have furniture so it can be used. The boiler room should be better kitted out for wet ski gear and have boot warmer. A dryer would be very useful too. It was kept very clean and the staff were great attending our every need, although there was possibly an unnecessary waste of food - especially at breakfast.
