"Lovely little apartment - very friendly welcome"

A group of 4 of us stayed here for our annual ski long weekend away. The welcome we received from the owners was fantastic with a few fresh bits and bobs (and a iced brioche that could clog arteries at 100 paces :-)) left for us.

The apartment is fairly small but was spotless and has everything you would need and we were perfectly comfortable.

It is about a 10 minute flat stroll to Chamonix centre where there are loads of restaurants/bars etc.

Thanks you were great guests and left the apartment in immaculate condition.
