A Fantastic Chalet in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet was very cosy, clean & comfortable & had everything we needed, with lovely views of the Mountains & The Aiguille du Midi. Close to Les Houches beginner ski run & other nearby ski runs as well as Chamonix Town centre. Plenty to see & do here.

Lovely little chalet

  • 5 of 5

This small chalet in a quiet cul-de-sac comes well recommended, we've stayed here for two weeks every year for several years. Clean, well equipped and maintained, a 5 minute drive from the Les Houches lifts and 15 minutes from Chamonix.

The new management company as of this year (Apex) is run by two friendly Scots (Chris and Fraser) and we had no issues with our stay.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is located in a perfect spot; quiet, beautiful and close to stores, restaurants, and trailheads. We spent 4 weeks on a climbing/hiking trip and it was always nice to come back and grab a beer or glass of wine and sit out in the garden and enjoy the evening after an excursion. We also liked the fact we could visit Chamonix or elsewhere on a rest day or when it was too rainy to climb and it was only a 5 minute drive.

Most of the time there were 4 of us in the chalet which was ideal. It felt a little small when for a brief time we had 5 people.

Our only suggestion would be that a few of the amenities could use a bit of updating (e.g.toaster (broken handle) & coffee maker), but given the very fair price, this might be nit-picking;-)

Jacky and Alex were very pleasant and courteous to deal with via e-mail.

Great location, great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was great, and comfortably accommodated our family of 5, including teenagers. Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac, there are lovely views up to Mt Blanc, and a sunny back garden for a well deserved evening beer. It is a good starting point for mountain walks, either from the door, or a short drive away (several spectacular walks within 10 minutes). We liked the Bossons chairlift, (about 25 Euros for a family return ticket) which drops you at the foot of the glacier for a choice of walks up the mountain. A really good holiday.

COSY AND WELL FITTED

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in March/April 2013 with two children. Worked out very well for us as it allowed the children to relax in the evenings after a hard days skiing.

We all slept well each night, the accommodation is quiet and comfortable.

I would recommend it.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay and worked really well for our family. We had such a brilliant week, the weather couldn't have been better with bright sunshine for most of it plus a heavy fall of snow on the last day which created a wonderful opportunity for snowman and igloo building for the kids! The snow was cleared from our pathways and drive the same day it had landed so we were able to still get out. The apartment is ideally situated only a few minutes from the ski lifts and the supermarket but with the most beautiful views. The ski-ing was fantastic and free ice skating in Les houches was a bonus. We also took the children to the swimming pool in Chamonix which they enjoyed. We couldn't have hoped for a better holiday.

In Summer, the Parc de Merlet nature reserve is not to be missed. It has the best views of the Mont Blanc from its balcony restaurant and there are opportunities to see a lot of alpine wildlife.
