Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

The location is great. The grocery store is directly across the street. There are a few pastry shops within a block either way with the most delicious French pastries and bread. Cheese shop also on the block. Although we could have walked to a few of the ski areas, the bus stop is a short walk from the condo.

The tourist office is also close by. They were super helpful with snow conditions at the various ski areas, travel and general information. Our group stopped by several times during our week's stay.

The unit itself is spacious; not cramp at all. There were 9 of us: brothers, their wives, nieces and nephews. The large dining room table was perfect allowing everyone to sit around to share our day's adventure and enjoy a meal together. There are 10 beds; no one has to sleep on a couch. Some places would say they sleep 10, but with beds for only 7 or 8 people and offering a futon or pull out sofa as sleeping accommodations.

Minor issues for the kitchen. We could not find oven mitts or potholders. Two kitchen towels were supplied, but did not serve well handling hot oven items. We had to supply our own dish washing liquid and kitchen garbage bag after initial bag was full. Other than those minor problems, the kitchen had more than enough pots, pans, glasses, flatware, and dishes for our crew.

And the owner was very accessible and helpful with any questions.

Perfect Summer Getaway for traveling students

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with seven other friends on a weekend trip to Chamonix. We were American students studying abroad in France with very little travel experience. The owners were extremely welcoming and very helpful with site seeing advice. We did not have access to a car, which proved to be no problem at all because all the sites Chamonix had to offer were within a 15 min walk. We would spent most of our days out seeing the sites and would come home to to make "family" dinners. I would recommend this apartment to any type of travelers looking to experience Chamonix. The views, activities, shops, reasonable rates (especially for traveling students) made this the perfect weekend getaway. I would come back in a heart beat!

Great location, very clean and large flat.

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 10 had an amazing stay in Chamonix. The flat was better then we expected. The location is perfect for ease of access to activities in the town and mountains. The deck was large and the view incredible. I would highly recommend Villa Leon for your time in Chamonix.

Great central location for a ski holiday !!!

  • 5 of 5

We satyed here for a late spring ski trip. We have skied chamonix a few times and are well aware that many places calling themselves "chamonix " are only in the valley (les hoiuches, argentiere etc), sometimes involving 20 mins walk even if they are in chamonix. This apartment can not be beaten for location. Its in the central pedestrianised area - even I was amazed how near the centre we were. You can literally see the apartment door as you are leaving the super u supermarket! The apartment is very roomy by french standards- the rooms are 3 decent sized and one bunk room, perfectly ok for a couple of children. Beds were all comfortable- not rock hard ones we often suffer. The 3 big rooms all have ensuites- another bonus when you are hurrying to get to the slopes in the morning. The kitchen is well equiped , though we didnt find the haiirdryer that was in the itinerary. The whole house was very warm- we had to turn our heating down in most bedrooms. The terrace outside is very large- you could easily have a meal outside feeding 10. Great spot to sit and watch chamonix down below. The price for this apartment is unbeatable- believe me - I scoured the net! Just remember not to let the main downstairs door slam, as a permanent resident lives upstairs and it must drive her nuts. She is so quiet that we thought nobody else was staying there! You might want to take some dvd s for the kids as the tv is french only. For the ski bus, turn left out of the door, take the first right at the top and the bus stop is there, about 4 mins walk.Check the boards for directions as they go from both sides.Have a great holiday.

Central location for Ski holiday

  • 5 of 5

what can i say ? Its central location (intermarché is over the road) and size makes this apartement a great choice if you are a group of up to ten people to explore chamonix for skiing.

Great location with a lot of room. Even for 10 people it is really enough space to store your gear and having fun in the evening after a great day of skiing. Pubs & Bars (chambre neuf, MBC, ...) are just a few minutes away.

The apartment was simply perfect. Clean, right in the centre of Chamonix in a pedestrian street, with a wonderful terrace where we could eat and have a rest. Hope to come back

The Villa Leon is situated in the heart of Chamonix with view of the mountain ranges from all angles. It combines the beauty of the Mont Blanc mountain ranges with the comfort of being in a lively town (beside shops, restaurants, cafés, ski slopes, swimming pool, health centers, ice skating rink, mountain climbing, ice climbing, para gliding, mountain bike trails, cross country skiing, down hill skiing, golf course, treks, the Mont Blanc trail, squash courts).

Other Activities: ice skating

Ski: Skiing in Chamonix is an exceptional experience. For beginner and intermediate skiers, the Brevent, Flègere, Le Tour and Les Houches offer an amazing variety of slopes and scenery (pistes, off-piste, forest runs) ideal for group skiing and family skiing. For experienced skiers, Chamonix offers a real challenge with its red and black pisted runs, and its complete mountains of unpisted slopes allowing for fantastic bump runs and powder skiing (after fresh snow be up early). Les grands montets gives you what you'd need a helicopter to find else where. Even in the high season, you can find routes in Chamonix where you feel that you are alone on the mountain. For intermediate and experienced skiers, the Valley Blanche is a day trip that offers breathtaking scenery and high mountain skiing with the classic route or the variations for more experienced skiers.
