"Een prettige uitvalsbasis"

Wij zijn met vier skifanaten een weekje in het appartement van Roger geweest. Via email alles met de eigenaar geregeld. We kregen van hem duidelijke aanwijzingen, en ethousiaste tips (ja ook het Ghandi restaurant: gewoon een keer doen). Wij namen de auto naar Les Houches of Argentiere om te skien, maar met de bus moet het ook heel goed kunnen. Die rijden af en aan, en een halte is echt op loopafstand van het appartement.
Les Houches was zoals voorgespiegeld van beginner tot en met gevorderde genoeg uitdaging. Grand Montets in Argentiere voor de gevorderde erg uitdagend, adembenemend en je mag er je eigen spoor trekken.
Het appartement zelf is niet groot en tamelijk vol. Ik zou het niet voor zes aanbevelen, maar dat is vaak zo als je gaat skien in Frankrijk. Er is een erg goede internet verbinding (inbegrepen). Hou verder rekening met betalingskosten, naar Jersey is dat nog steeds niet zo gratis als naar waar dan ook binnen de EU.

Superb location for a first time ski trip with children 11 & 8. A 6 minute walk from the nursery slopes at Les Tourchets where there was a 100m & 500m tow lift and the excellent Christoph Cuby in Spor… More

"Brilliant location for a ski holiday with children"

We enjoyed our holiday as a family / friends group - primarily a ski trip for us, with excellent easy access to many resorts for all levels of ski. Was also really nice to be able to walk to many nice restaurants and a few shops without getting the car out.
Great facilities in the apartment - dishwasher, washing machine, boot dryer, internet to name but a few.
Fantastic view from the balcony.
We will be happy to go there again.

"Ideal apartment at a great price."

Stayed at Les Dahus for first 2 weeks in April, we are a family of 4 - with 2 girls.

The apartment is in the St Antoine area of Les Houches and is close to the 2 main supermarkets, a number of restaurants, bakery, pizza takeaway and bus stops. The train station is less than 10 minutes walk away. The area is very quiet, no car noise and very little evidence of neighbours. There is a ski locker in a separate building so skis can be dumped here before walking on to the apartment. Also a boot heater in the apartment which we did not need to use but would be a nice luxury during the winter.

The apartment is accessed via outside stairs (with lights at night time) and is over 2 floors. The main living area comprises a small kitchen, dining area and 2 couches (one a pull out bed). There is a balcony with chairs and a fantastic view on to the Mont Blanc range.

The kitchen has a combination oven/microwave and 2 hotplates. Loads of pots, bowls, dishes etc. Found that it was easy to cook in the space - just had to be a bit tidier than I am normally. There is a large fridge, dishwasher and washing machine.

TV with access to lots of TV stations and a DVD player. There are some DVDs and books in the apartment. Also wi-fi which was a big factor for us.

Separate toilet and bathroom - which is good if you have teenage girls. Hot water was always available and always very hot. Storage in hall for shoes, coats, etc.

Two double bedrooms up a set of stairs (these are a bit steep). There was enough storage space in the rooms for our clothes. Beds were comfy and warm and if the shutters are closed you could sleep forever.

This is a budget apartment so do not expect luxurious surroundings but it is so much better than the sterile and impersonal apartments offered by companies. It is very much the owner's personal holiday home and there are lots of features that will make your stay pleasant and easy. Yes - you will have to tidy up, switch things off and leave the apartment ready for the next guest but that is reflected in the price and maybe means that you can stay longer. The photos on one of the holiday websites don't really do the place justice.

The owner is very considerate and responded immediately to any communication. He knows the valley really well so would be able to give you advice or information if you needed any. Would definitely stay here again.

"Cosy, convenient apartment"

This is a nice apartment with stunning views up the Chamonix Valley. We stayed for a skiing break, and it is excellent value for money compared to similar properties. Booking was easy and comprehensive, helpful directions were sent in good time.
The apartment itself is well laid out, it is a little compact but not uncomfortable. Kitchen and living area is clean and nicely furnished. Free wifi is really useful, also has satellite tv (limited channels).
The apartment can be reached by foot or taxi from Les Houches station, and is very well placed indeed for the ski buses (which can be crowded at times) and also a very inexpensive and well-stocked supermarket. There's a useful ski locker along the drive.
Would I recommend? Yes - I would certainly like to go back!

"Great little chalet with everything you need"

This chalet had everything we needed for a great ski holiday. Decent little kitchen, hot shower with good pressure, comfy beds, and even a ski boot dryer in the hall. The view of the mountains from the balcony was amazing!

We had a car during our stay and this proved really useful as there are many great slopes within easy reach, and it meant not lugging our gear on the busses! There was always car parking space at the chalet.

There are a few restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance, so food was never an issue

I can't wait till next ski season!

"Reasonable Apartment"

It is a privately owned apartment & a bit more tedious to make arrangements, pre- pay, turn things on/ off etc etc Directions to get there need improving ( especially if coming by train). Comfortabl… More
