Beautiful, well-equipped chalet apartment, short walk to Chamonix centre
We stayed in this beautiful apartment for a week during the UTMB trail running event. It was a short walk to everything we needed - the finish line, race checkin, UTMB Expo, sports stores, restaurants, and buses (for the races that have a bus to the starting line).
The view of Mont Blanc from the balcony is spectacular. We had coffee and wine out there most days. The decor has a relaxing chalet feel with comfortable furniture and beds, and lots of wood, art and even cowbells. There is a dining table and a bar with seating around the sides. It's a perfect place to stay with one or two other couples. Everyone has a large room of their own and there is a nice communal area to gather for conversations and meals.
The kitchen and the rest of the apartment were very well equipped. We had plenty of dishes, glasses and pots, and we even could have made raclette or fondue! The owner had thoughtfully put champagne and beer in the fridge for us.
We had a washer, dryer and drying rack. Laundry soap was provided, which made things easier for us since we didn't have to buy a large package. We were grateful that linens and towels were included. There were many other items in the apartment that we didn't use but it was nice that the owner had thought so much about things that a guest might enjoy during their stay.
We opened windows at cooler times of the day to create a breeze since there is no air conditioning, which is common in Chamonix. We kept the skylight shades mostly closed during the sunny part of the day and found the apartment quite comfortable.
The stairs to the 2nd floor require some caution and wouldn't be appropriate for people with mobility issues or very young children. Our 4-year-old visitor had no trouble after a little practice.
We really enjoyed our stay and would happily return to this apartment when we come back to Chamonix some day!
A lovely Apartment close to the centre of Chamonix
We had a fabulous week in Chamonix. Great snow, great skiing, great nightlife and this great Apartment.
The Apartment is equipped with everything you need for your comfort and convenience. We had every breakfast and evening meal there. The decor is charming and there is plenty of space for 6 people to relax in the evening. The bedrooms were a good size for the Alps with comfortable beds. The bathrooms appeared newly fitted and very clean. In fact the whole Apartment was spotless!
The location is great too. A few minutes walk to the town centre and all that offers. The bus stop for access to the slopes is even closer! Despite being so close to the centre of town, the apartment is far enough away to be quiet at night.
Thierry (Host) and Sylvie (Local Contact) were very helpful in the run up to and during our holiday.
I have no hesitation in recommending this La Petite Savoyade for a holiday in Chamonix.
Thank you very much David and hope that you will come back soon in our beautiful valley and our beautiful mountains in Chamonix !!!
Centrally located yet in quiet area. V well equipped. Excellent view of Mt Blanc and Bossons Glacier
We had a great time staying at La Petite Savoyarde. Mr Babey kindly gave us a bottle of champagne and some beer which was much appreciated. The views from the balcony were amazing and as the roof overhangs it we could even enjoy going out there even when it rained. (It was mostly warm and sunny with occasional thunderstorms in the afternoons and nights).The stairs to the mezzanine floor were very steep and took some getting used to. It was a bit too hot on the mezzanine floor. There was mixed communication as to whether it was okay to open the velux windows, the one in the lounge wouldn't open, the one in the top bedroom did (we didn't try the one in the mezzanine lounge - this had great views of Aguille du Midi.) We had fun using the raclette set for one meal and also using the fondue set.
We got a 9 day lift pass covering most of our stay - the longer duration you get the better the value. We enjoyed glacier walking and climbing with Peak Powder and also paragliding with the company based near the bottom of Plan Praz lift.
Mr Babey and Sylvie were welcoming and very accommodating regarding our odd duration of stay (Monday to Friday) and our times of arriving/ leaving. We recommend this lovely accommodation which is in a great location.
A very big thank your Natalie for your nice comment and maybe next time at La Petite Savoyarde!
Good location. Great views. Well equipped, clean and characterful.
excellent property and great location and fabulous service
Very comfortable and cosy and a great location. Would highly recommend
Lovely place, beautifully decorated, fantastic location.
We stayed here for UTMB week. Ideally situated, five minutes walk from start and town centre. Just far enough that the cheering from race finishers didn't keep you up at night. Apartment had all amenities you needed. A very high standard of furnishings and beautiful views of mont blanc. Highly recommend.
thank you Alan for your kind message and maybe next time in our beautiful valley of Chamonix
Geneva: 88 Km (airport) and possibility bus shuttle
Yvoire: 65 km medieval village on the shores of Lake Geneva
Annecy: 100 km beautiful city with its lake
Megêve: very pretty Savoyard resort to spend the day in case of bad weather
But stay in Chamonix, it's the Top !!!
Shops: 800m very nice, there is everything in Chamonix
Downtown: at 800m everything is done on foot from the chalet
In the heart of Chamonix and 2 minutes walk from the historic center of Chamonix with pedestrian streets, shops, restaurants. 'Everything is done on foot !!'
Our apartment is at the end of a quiet, calm guaranteed!
You will also see before you a fantastic Panoroma with Mt Blanc chain as a backdrop. Simply sublime!
