The Rhone/French Alps region
The Haute-Savoie is one of the premier outdoor destinations in Europe.Chamonix has been welcoming travellers and adventurers for over two and a half centuries and can be truly described as an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. The mountain scenery overlooks the town from all angles including the highest mountain of all - Mont-Blanc.
Skiing and Snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts only, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.
Summer: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb paragliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canyoning and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; the sports centre has an indoor and outdoor 50m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, Jacuzzi, the list goes on!

"Assessment of property"
The apartment was ready for immediate occupation with everything working well [electricity and heating on]. The beds were made up and the apartment was clean.The views from all the windows were superb - great view of the Aiguille Midi capturing the morning sunlight on the summit. The location was ideal for walking the short distance into the centre with many restaurants close by. The boulangerie in the adjoining block is a must for early morning collection of baguettes, croissants etc.
Having a reserved underground car space was particularly useful in Chamonix, where finding somewhere to leave your vehicle near the centre is both difficult and expensive.

"Well equipped and well located apartment"
This was the first time we have stayed in Chamonix and were delighted with the location of the apartment near to the Plan de l'Aiguille cable car and the Chamonix Sud bus stop, plus a great patisserie, just beside the main entrance to the apartment and several restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The apartment was well equipped for 8 people although we were only 4. Personally I would prefer no more than 6 to stay there as a family but a group of 8 young friends would probably find it fine. At the time of year we went it was a lot quieter as it was between seasons although it suited us fine to take the bus or train along the valley - we bought a a 2 euro ticket from the tourist board which allowed us 'free' travel on both train or bus for the week. We fitted in a high level walk taking the cable car to Aiguille du Midi and then walked over the the Mer du Glace where you could get the train down or walk down. Valley walks were lovely too.

"All what you can expect for with a bit of extra."
First, great value for money. Second, location, we drove all the way from London. Getting there we did park the cars on a covered garage, we only took the cars out on the departure time. Everything i… More
Thank you very much for your review - it means a lot when guests have enjoyed their stay at the apartment and take the time to leave some feedback. I hope to welcome you back another time!

"Excellent apartment well equipped and in a great location"
I was somewhat nervous having never before booked through this organisation but my fears were not justified. The booking and checking in procedures were very smooth. Good service from the Sno-station team who also arranged discounted ski-passes that were waiting for us in the apartment on our arrival. We really appreciated the fact that the apartment has its own garage in the cellar, which was wide and easy to park - a must considering the central location in town. Also very useful was the ski rental show - right next door !. The apartment was well equipped so we found everything we needed...Even Wifi access !!.
The only negative was the 4 flights of stairs to negotiate after a hard day's skiing....but we didnt care. Will definitely come again - Thanks James

"Great modern facilities in a very central location"
The flat is located very close to the centre of Chamonix (shops and restaurants), the central bus stop and also close to the Aiguille de Midi cable car. This makes it a perfect location for all outdoor activities available in Chamonix. The flat has very modern furnishings (including wifi and a washing machine) and also has two bathrooms, which was really useful. This is a great flat, highly recommended.
