Guestbook comments from the owner

Chalet position - great really enjoyed being able to walk to town and forest walks.

Ski buses stop close.

Transfer for airport - great.



Accommodation - great, overall bedding, robes superb.

If someone is more than 6 foot tall, maybe allocate them to bedrooms other than the eaves room, as all the other ensuites have a higher shower height.



The kitchen for me cooking everyday was good lots of utensils and plates etc.

Jacuzzi great and fire every night made it so cosy.



Pre booking - such good communication from the owner and so informative

Would we come again? Yes

Beautiful Chalet, in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We visited Chalet Cristalliers for a 3 generation ski holiday (ages 3 months to 66 years). It was conveniently located for access to beginners slopes at Planards, an easy walk into town and a regular bus to the main cable cars. The accommodation was great for a large group and we had an excellent holiday. I would strongly recommend this property and would use it again in the likely case that we go back to Chamonix

A well appointed spacious chalet. Clean, warm and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet was very comfortable. Plenty of room for the Eight in our party. It was very clean and well equipped. After a nice meal in the evening around the large dinning room table we all had plenty of room to relax around the open fire. The Hot Tub was a joy after a tough day on the slopes. Parking was easy at each resort we visited along the valley. The local free bus service was efficient but crowded at peak times. Chamonix centre was fun and full of good restaurants and bars. A visit to the local Microbrewery (MBC) was a good night out (only 5 minute walk from chalet).

A wonderful chalet perfectly located to access Chamonix and the mountains

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful chalet within walking distance to Chamonix and about 50m from the bus stop. We came with another family and it was very easy for everyone to have their own space or all sit together in the lounge. Very comforatable and we'll definitely come back. The owners were very helpful with any of our questions. Strongly recommended.

Great place to stay in Chamonix

  • 4 of 5

An extremely well situated chalet within 10 mins walk of Chamonix centre with all the local amenities, shops restaurants etc and 5 mins from the shuttle bus stop allowing easy access to Argentiere and other areas of the Chamonix valley. Beautifully maintained with all the facilities - large rooms, comfy beds, wifi/UK TV for the teenagers - needed for a relaxing holiday walking in the surround hills. A soak in the hot tub and a cold beer on the terrace enjoying the views the a welcome reward after a hard day! A trip to the micro-brewery - less than 5 mins walk away - for a burger and a beer is a must. Very attentive owner who ensured that the holiday went off without a hitch. Highly recommended.

Great stay in a nice, clean and cosy chalet!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet had everything we needed and more. It is big enough for 8, but not too big either. Since the weather (as it often is) was mediocre in Chamonix, we had to spend some time indoors, so we did appreciate the high standard of the chalet...The microbrewery close by is great, and the city centre is just a short walk away. There is a nice room in the basement for storing mountain gear and drying clothes. Nice ensuites for all the bedrooms. We will be back!

Luxury hotel meets comfortable mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an incredible early March stay this winter. Our 3 families appreciated that the bedrooms were split over 3 floors allowing for privacy. We loved the en-suite bathrooms in each bedroom and individual temperature controls. The fluffy towels, robes and slippers were a luxury! The common areas were warm and inviting with plenty of seating. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking group dinners. Another bonus was the seemingly endless supply of cups so no one was without a clean one despite near constant consumption of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate throughout the week. We loved curling up beside the 3-sided fireplace and indulging in the selection of games and dvds during the snowy evenings. The boot room had plenty of space for all our skis, snowboards, boots, and gloves, all of which were dry and toasty warm at the beginning of each day thanks to the boot warmer.

The location was great. There is a beautiful view of the mountains from the hot tub. The bus stop around the corner from the chalet was helped us easily get to the different ski areas. You want the #2 La Frasse stop - other buses will drop you off in town and you have to trek back to the chalet. It's only about 10 minutes, but every step counts in ski boots at the end of the day! We also rented a car which made it even easier to get to Grand Montets (15 min instead of ~30) and to the Carrefour to stock up on groceries. There were also smaller grocery stores within walking distance. We enjoyed the food and beer at the micro brasserie that was a few minutes walk away, but watch out for the rugby schedule - some days it's impossible to get a seat. But no worries, walking a few more minutes takes you into town with many more options for eating, drinking, and shopping. We found the ski rental at the Intersport across the street from the micro brasserie very convenient. Nearby there is also the Richard Bozon center with a swimming pool and ice skating when we needed a break from the skiing.

Jayne was a wonderful host. She went above and beyond in helping with my questions and arrangements for off-piste guides, ski lessons, extra cleaning service, a clutch late check-out, cribs for the babies and more. Thank you Jayne for making our dream vacation a reality!!

We hope to be back soon!
