Rachel Butler purchased this apartment in 1996
We had already been to Argentiere twice before we decided to look for our own place as we felt we could spend summer and winter holidays there. Argentiere is a great place to holiday in all seasons. We have four children and can fit all of us in.
Lovely, cosy apartment. Great view. Near to ski lift, and ski bus, just couple of 100 m. Wel equiped, everything you need was there. Clean. Good beds. Good shower. Wel heated. Ski storage is sufficient, however if you have lots of stuff (our sons like to bring ski's, snowboard, snowblades, tourski's in the same holiday) it is to small. We storaged the surplus of equipment in our car, carpark in front of the apartment, so no problem.
Village is on walking distance, supermarket, bakery, ATM and resatuarants nearby.
So: very good and price worthy apartment for a nice ski holliday.
Apartment is located in Grand Roc residence, location is perfect because all you need you can reach in max 5min walk - train station, bus station, supermarket, climbing shops, restaurants, cable car etc.
Apartment is very lovely and cozy, since first minute we walked in we felt like home there. The size of apartment is perfect for 4 adults or family with 2-3 children.
You will find everything you need in apartment starting from kitchen equipment (and believe me we cooked every evening), till books, table games, extra blankets etc.
View from balcony to Mont Blanc is magnificent, it motivated us to wake up every morning, pack our thing and go climbing or trekking, we just loved this view.
I can say that this was one of the best booking experiences ever, because of the apartment owner Rachel. We started to search apartment in Chamonix area in June, I would say it was quite challenging process because most of owners answers slowly or not at all. Rachel answered quickly, and was super helpful through all booking process.
I would recommend this apartment to everyone because it is well located, nice, clean, cozy, and has helpful owners who are interested to make your stay there as perfect as possible. We will definitely return there!
Property was exactly as described . Location was excellent, very close to cable car and food shops and restaurants. It was snug and warm and bed was very comfortable. Shower was great. View of the mountains was stunning . The owner , Rachel was very helpful and organised linen rental for us. Good information was provided about local services. We had a hire car but only used it once as trains , buses and cable cars were so close. Parking was not a problem. The walking is great , there are lots of local low level walks and the high level walking is outstandingly good.
Cozy little apartment with everything you need to have a great ski vacation. All you need to bring is yourself and an adventurous attitude.
This is our second stay here. It's a lovely clean apartment with v good use of space so lots of storage space available. Great location and fabulous views!
The apartment was great, we had 5 people staying and it was quite cosy but we still managed to cook for all 5 folk six nights out of the seven!! The cooling facilities are great and everything is in the apartment u would need to cook!
There is a wood burning stove Whiich was a great job when Tryin to dry 5 sets of ski outfits.. As always radiators are limited and with a clothes horse and plenty of pegs near the stove drying clothes was no problem!!
The apartment is in a great location with a 4 minute walk to th best resort (grand montets) and le tour is only 5 mins up the road by car or the buses which go every 10mins!
There is also a fantastic supermarket beside the apartment which is very very reasonably priced for any town let alone a ski resort!
All in all a great wee place and wud reccomend to anyone
