About Rachel Butler
We have four children - there is room for all of us in our apartment!
Rachel Butler purchased this Apartment in 1996
Why Rachel Butler chose Argentière
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has beautiful views of the Mont Blanc range, including Mont Blanc itself. It is south-facing so gets the maximum amount of sunshine. It has additional heating on both floors. The two toilets, both of which are separate to the shower room, make for maximum efficiency when there are six of us using the facilities!

The Grand Roc houses is an Argentiere a classic. I have stayed in these houses many times in different apartments since the mid eighties. This apartement is particularly nice, very good layout, very clean, cosy and with a nice view of the mountains. Great host, great meat and greet. Grand Roc is as close to Grand Montets as it gets, which is one of its main advantages.
To me this is 5 stars. However, the Grand Roc houses are old and bit worn so I dont want to mislead anyone - if you are looking for something fancy or genuinly french this may not be it. Therefore the missing fifth star.
Great ski apartment
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.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and we are glad our apartment met your needs.
I have just investigated further storage options and found out that large lockers can be rented on the lower floor of the small commercial centre just next to the apartment block (next to the laundrette). Current (2016) cost is 8 euros per day or 40 euros per week. Sorry we weren't aware of this for your stay but hopefully this will be useful information for future visitors.
Lovely apartment, grate location, helpful owners
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!
It is great to receive positive reviews of any kind, but particularly if they are helpful to other people - thank you very much for taking the time to write a helpful review. Maybe we are a little biased but we agree that the location of the apartment is ideal - for winter, summer, spring or autumn activities. We would love to welcome you back another year.
Lovely property in centre of Argentiere
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.
Thank you very much for taking the time to provide your kind and helpful review.
