Spacious garden level apartment with a floor area of 105 sq metres. Three bedrooms, all with ensuite showers sleeping up to seven people in a choice of double or single beds. For extra accommodation there also is the option of renting the adjacent Chalet Alpine Rose which sleeps an additional two people.

For relaxation after a hard day in the mountains there is free 50M WiFi, & TV Internet access, BlueRay DVD, CD player, international Cable TV, DVD library, selection of books, Sauna plus Wood Burning Stove with free logs.

Unlike many properties who claim to be in central Chamonix but on closer investigation are a bus ride or long walk away from the action our chalet apartment is only 200 metres from the town centre by footpath. It is 600 metres on foot (or by car) from two of the local cable cars, Le Brevant and Aiguille De Midi plus 700 metres from the Savoie beginners ski area. We are two minutes walk from the free ski bus which goes to all the valleys ski areas and also three minutes walk from the Chamonix Aiguille De Midi mountain railway halt which runs from La Fayet (with connection to Geneve) to Martigny and Verbier in Switzerland.

Outside the ski season there is close and easy access to the mountain trails by foot or on a mountain bike. The nearest climbing area is about Gaillands which is 1,3km away and in about 20minutes you can be at the foot of a selection of high mountain climbing routes.

The golf course is 5 minutes drive, the indoor and outdoor swimming pool is 10 minutes walk as is the Planards adventure park with luge, rope adventures and other family activities.

Despite the close proximity to the centre of town our chalet apartment is located in a secluded location in 1000 sq metres of private gardens at the end of a cul de sac in a quiet residential area on the sunny side of the Chamonix valley.

The large gardens are surrounded by mature trees and hedges and are a haven for wild life such as birds, bats and red squirrels (with frequent visits from other interesting species such as Sanglier, Deer and Ibex).

At the same time however there are stunning extensive views of the surrounding mountains, including Le Brevant, Les Houches, Mont Blanc, L'Aiguille De Midi and Les Grands Montets.

There is also parking for several cars plus a table tennis table, barbeque and swings with plenty of room in the garden for the children to play.

The chalet also contains our owner accommodation so we will be on hand at all times to offer advice or help.

The Rhone/French Alps region

Haute-Savoie, France.

Regions steeped in history, many-faceted landscapes, a land of adventure, a world blessed by Mother Nature and carefully tended by man.

Haute Savoie is one of the most awe inspiring areas of Europe and possibly the World. Deep blue lakes and snow topped mountains. It is the perfect place to breath the mountain air and recharge the batteries after the struggles of everyday life.

Chamonix

Chamonix is the perfect place for all the family. It has every adventure sport conceivable available, in fact several were invented here. Climbing, parapenting, mountaineering, ice climbing, mountain biking, road biking, horse riding, hill walking, rambling, running, canyonning, rafting, activity parks, rope parks and summer luge.

Additonally there are less adventurous activites such as golf, tennis, swimming and fishing available. Finally Chamonix is the perfect place to just sit and relax, take in the views, get a perfect tan and breath in the mountain air.

Oh yes and there is a casino plus some very exclusive shops and restaurants in town, that is why the Italians arrive in force every weekend.
