Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Set on the top floor with uninterrupted, panoramic views of Mont Blanc, Le Refuge is a stylish, two-bedroom apartment in the heart of Chamonix, next to the river and minutes from the shops, ski lifts and public transport.
With a south-facing balcony, open-plan layout and high ceilings the apartment feels really light, and is incredibly spacious at 70 square metres. Considering the central location, it's a surprise to find that it's in a tranquil setting, facing away from the street and not overlooked by any other buildings. The apartment has been newly renovated to a high standard, retaining its local rustic charm but with all the conveniences of a modern home.
Le Refuge easily sleeps 4 to 6 people. For those with young children there's plenty of space in both rooms for a cot.
The apartment has a private parking space in a secure garage underneath the building, a private ski locker, and lift access from the garage. There's also free public parking nearby.

Chamonix is a charming, historic town nestled in the French Alps at the foot of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe.
The majestic, snow-capped peaks and cascading glaciers which put it on the map over a hundred years ago remain as impressive as ever, continuing to draw visitors from across the world. And when you consider how much the mountains have to offer, you can see why.
In winter, the skiing is world-class with an extensive network of ski runs and lifts, the highest of which takes you up to a staggering 3,842m. The off-piste skiing is second to none, with endless options for ski touring, too. You can also get involved in cross-country skiing, snow-shoe walking, ice climbing and mountaineering.
In summer, being amongst the lush, Alpine countryside with snowy mountains and glaciers as a back drop certainly leaves a strong impression. There are plenty of activities on offer, including hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain-biking, rafting and paragliding.

"Good apartment, good location"
Only stayed for a few nights but really liked this apartment. Underground car park was great, although make sure you get the fob with you keys! Lift takes you to top floor where you find apartment. Wa… More

"Perfect place to stay in Chamonix!"
We were lucky enough to spend New Year at Le Refuge and be one of the first guests in the newly refurbished apartment. The owners have done a fab job. Everything you could want from ski accommodation - comfy beds, hot and powerful shower, stacks of space to store wet gear and a great, sociable dining area to while away the evenings. There were six of us which worked perfectly.
Right in the centre of Chamonix so a quick walk to all shops, bars and restaurants (recommend Evolution for partying and MBC for amazing burgers) and a parking place inside if you have a car to drive to the slopes.
Thoroughly recommend Le Refuge.

"Stunning alpine retreat with all mod cons in the heart of pretty Chamonix"
Le Refuge is a hidden gem right in the heart of pretty Chamonix. The apartment is beautifully decorated; cosy Alpine charm abounds and complements the stunning views from the balcony windows. It's the perfect place to retreat after a hard day on the mountain. The owners have thought of everything: strong powerful shower, ski-boot dryers, comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen and a large living diner area, perfect for big sociable meals. We couldn't have asked for a better place to see in the New Year with friends. Highly recommended. We'll be back!"
