Our apartment is very much our home in the Alps. We use it as much as possible and the feedback we receive from our guests is that the apartment feels like a home away from home. We visit Chamonix throughout the year for both sports and relaxation, and never fail to be struck by the incredible beauty of the town and its setting.
Joanne purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Joanne chose Chamonix City Centre
Chamonix is one of the historic mountain towns of the Alps. Often described as the world's capital of mountain sports, it is visited throughout the year and is easily accessed being just over an hour from Geneva. Chamonix is arguably in the 'heart' of the Alps, situated below Mont Blanc with its huge glaciers, and very close to the borders of Italy and Switzerland. There is something for everyone in Chamonix, both on and off the mountains.
What makes this Apartment unique
We were very fortunately to own an apartment in the Residence Les Aiguilles Du Brevent. It is a highly sought after location adjacent to the Brevent Telecabine and a very short walk into the centre of Chamonix. It is located on the sunny side of the valley in quiet grounds. The building is unique in having a permanent resident guardian which ensures the building is maintained to a high standard. The build and design is Italian dating from 1975 and all rooms are spacious and bright. The apartment also benefits from all rooms having access to the garden through patio doors. We refurbished the apartment and maintain it in a lovely bright modern style.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The best property ever
The first property we booked in Chamonix fell through and at the last minute so we had to find another property fast. I think this was lucky for us as this was one of the best vrbo stays ever. The flat was comfortable and clean and has everything you will need. It is more like someone’s home than a rental. All appliances were easy to use and we loved having a washer/dryer. Joanne also responded to email very quickly and was very responsive to all questions.
The building is quiet and located at the top of a hill. If you have health or mobility issues it is quite a walk up the hill (unless you have a car), but it is great exercise after eating in centreville Chamonix. There is parking but is suited for a smaller car.
We loved that the paragliders practically land on top of the property in the morning and evening. It is absolutely beautiful. The apartment is within walking distance of everything you need. We had a car but rarely took it out except to go to Italy and Switzerland which are both very close. You can walk to the cable car that goes up to Mont Blanc.
Great little cafe within walking distance of the flat with a great view while having a morning espresso, lunch or afternoon glass of rose. Fabulous hiking in the area. We definitely hope to go back and fell in love with Chamonix. Having the use of such a great apartment definitely helped with that. Thank you Joanne.
Fabulous Apartment. Great Location
Stayed in the apartment with my partner and two teenage daughters. The apartment was perfect. I've rented apartments in Chamonix for 10 years plus and this is certainly the best. Modern high standard throughout. Lots of space and unlike many apartments, which I find compromised for storage this has an abundance of wardrobe and storage space, very useful utility cupboard to dry all your ski clothes. I liked the ground floor position, even in the winter it was nice to be able to sit out in the morning. The location is great to, particularly if you like the easy access to the ski lifts, the Brevent Gondola base is literally a minutes walk. Cant fault this apartment and the owners where really helpful from the point of booking to the useful information they leave at the apartment.
Beautiful apartment with easy access to Brevent
Lovely apartment with high quality facilities and very comfortable with plenty of space. Good reading material and lots of films to watch.
Great apartment in a prime location
A very comfortable, quite and spotless apartment with quality fittings throughout. Comfortable beds, cozy living space and a compact but very well equipped kitchen. Plenty of DVDs to choose from if the weather closes in. Great location within a short walk to Le Brevent lift and shuttle bus pick up. Also within a short walk to the main shopping / restaurant area at Chamonix. The owner was very accommodating and provided are clear instructions on how the various systems in the apartment operate. Highly recommended.
Lovely ground level apartment in great location
Very nice 2br/2ba ground level apartment within walking distance to downtown Chamonix, near the Brevent lift. Views of Le Drus/Aguille Vert from the spacious garden. Apartment is well furnished with a very well stocked kitchen. Owners are pleasant and very accommodating. Highly recommended!
We had an absolutely fantastic stay in this lovely apartment! The location couldn't possibly be any better, and everything was just perfect for our trip.
We stayed here with our 7-month-old son, so we didn't actually get a chance to enjoy any of the many movies or the sound-system that are available, but I imagine this is great for other guests.
We ate in every evening, and the kitchen, although small, was very well-equipped and had everything needed to cook dinner.
The beds were very comfortable, and all of us slept very well.
All-in-all the apartment is great, the owners are very prompt in answering any questions, and I would whole-heartedly recommend this place to friends and family. I hope we will be able to come back again soon!
