About Steven Winstone-Adair

After Spending a Ski Season in Whistler, Canada I fell in love with the Mountains. I have my own Telecom Business in London, and strived to own my own Apartment in the Mountains.

Steven Winstone-Adair purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Steven Winstone-Adair chose Les Houches

When I saw that MGM were building in this area and location, it 'ticked' all the boxes. I wanted a property was close to the Ski lift so that I and future tennants did not have to get a Bus or walk far to the Ski lift. This was perfect with its great location to both lift and local amenities. Please see my web sote www.legrandtetras.co.uk

What makes this apartment unique

The view, Location and the peace and quiet. If I want to have more options I am only a short bus ride to Chamonix.

overall the property was as described. Nathalie was very helpful.

  • 3 of 5

It was a shame that the upstairs air con still did not work making the upstairs bedrooms pretty untenable. Nathalie provided a fan and a mobile air con but was very noisy. Also a great shame that the jacuzzi didnt work despite Nathalies best efforts. Slightly lacking in kitchen utensils to feed 9 but the outside hot plate and eating area was great. Parking was a challenge. We werent expecting to cross a road to the swimming pool and share with so many other apartments but it was fine apart from some other clients whose apartments overlooked the pool and complained that the kids were splashing too much and playing rather than swimming. Otherwise, good position, and a great family house

Superb

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property having used the property as our base for skiing. This property is in a perfect location and is very well equipped and imaculately clean. The bus stop into for Chamonix is 2 mins and the train 5 mins away. The apartment block is very quiet with superb views of the mountains. The bakery is a 2 min walk. We have 2 teenage children and there was plenty of room. In summary a great place to stay to explore the valley and mountains and a very comfy place to relax at the end of the day.

A fantastic well equipped apartment, situated in a perfect location in the Chamonix valley.

  • 5 of 5

Les Houches is a fantastic location in both the winter and summer. My family and I have spent our winter and summer holidays in Les Houches for the last 15 years. As a ski resort Les Houches is a perfect family resort. A great place for children to learn to ski with opportunities to be challenged! Les Houches is also a great place to access the whole of the Mount Blanc unlimited ski area either by car or bus. This apartment is in a great spot near to the ski lift (2 minute walk) - It is also possible to ski in at the end of the day. I know this area very well and this is as good a location as you can find. It is very clean, maintained and well equipped. In terms of space, it is very comfortable for 4 - 6 people. There is a sofa bed, which is clearly new and fits nicely into the apartment. The apartment is very warm and has a very home like feel to it. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, and will definitely be using it again in the future.

Well located apartment ..

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is well situated for the Prarion (bubble) lift which is a short distance away. The apartment was a good size for our party (4) but could easily accommodate 6 as is advertised. The facilities were amply sufficient for our needs and contact with the owner has been first class. I have little doubt that we will look at booking again.
