"stunning views and good location, good value in June"

We had a great week in a decent apartment with good mattresses, and at the beginning of June it was really good value. The location is excellent, close to bus, train, cable car station, walks, bakers, small supermarket, bars, restaurants etc. we got around happily without a car. Make sure you pick up a Carte d'Hote guest card from the tourist office: only cost 2 euros each and give free bus and trains in Chamonix valley.Unbroken view of mountains from the living room. Generally well equipped and comforting and the owner is helpful (although a few emails seemed to go astray between here and Australia). There were a few niggles which prevent me giving full marks: linen has to be hired (quite pricey) and is sheets, not duvet covers, hence leaving you to make your own beds and use the duvet as blankets. There's something a bit off putting about a duvet without a cover. The bathroom is a bit dated, though clean and plenty of hot water. Shower is good, bath small but deep. A washing machine was advertised but was not working, and there were a few small maintenance issues such as a cracked cafetiere and a small crack in kitchen cupboard glazing which are almost inevitable when there is a long distance owner. I have reported this and the owner intends to fix them. Also there was no wifi in the apartment nor balcony furniture, so the advert is slightly misleading in that respect. The decor of the common areas (entrance corridors) is very dingy, but the apartment itself is bright and cheerful. It has electric heaters and single glazing; fine in June, but I can't help but wonder how warm it is in the ski season. Overall, it's not quite perfect but a good base in a lovely spot.

"Great apartment and the perfect location for catching the first lift!"

Only a few minutes walk from the Grand Montets Cable Car Station. So close we came back for lunch most days. Shops, bars etc. are a similar distance in the other direction. Apartment is compact but nicely decorated and comfortable. Excellent shower! Balcony looks out onto the Pierre a Ric piste and Aiguille du Chardonnet. Owner and agency staff whom we collected the keys from were very helpful and nice to deal with. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

"Cosy & beautiful apartment at the perfect location – what more to ask?"

I spent three nights at Grand Roc with my mate in early March 2012. We hadn't been to Chamonix or Argentiere before and the atmosphere of Argentiere absolutely enchanted us. The apartment was very cosy to spend evenings after long days of skiing and its' location just a short walk from ski lifts was a lifesaver. Skiing was great – sun shining every day and pistes well groomed :) Restaurants nearby offered all you could ask for a skiing holiday – atmospheric dining and tasty food. Nice bars provided all the after ski that we needed.
Apartment has perfect view to mountains from large windows and balcony. It was a bliss to wake up in a such place.
We were given very detailed instructions of everything at the apartment and things really worked according to those instructions. Like using laundry machine, picking up keys or using the ski lockers. Apartment had all the equipment you could ask for. If you want to cook a proper diner at apartment, I'd guess you'll find everything there.

I warmly recommend this apartment to everyone! (Except for people with disabilities who will find it hard to climb the stairs – for the rest of us having bedrooms upstairs is a cool addition.)
