“Brilliant accommodation and management” Our stay at Melee apartment argentiere was fabulous from day one. No - even before that - during the booking phase. The adventure Base team were, at all times, helpful, willing and always polite with a 'can-do' attitude.
The apartment was perfect; it was as it had seemed in the advertisments which is not always the case with rented properties. Generous is its dimensions, fittings and utilities it made a great place to spend a week. We are a family group of seven and we found that it had everything that we needed and more.
When we arrived alex from adventure Base was there to greet us; the fire was set; the hot tub ready and the beds fitted out with superb linen.
During the week nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had several enquiries about the area, facilities etc and our questions were always met with a willingness to help/direct etc.
The proximity to the Grand Montet was amazing and the bread shop nest door and ski hire nearby were also a bonus. Perfectly placed for public transport, supermarkets etc we couldn't have been more pleased.
Overall we would highly recommend the apartment and in particular adventure Base.
“Cosy, tastefully decorated apartment, great views, close to the slopes” Our young children are just learning to ski so we wanted a self catering family apartment a reasonable distance from the slopes and ski school. We were very pleasantly surprised by a number of things. I thought the quality of the accommodation was great, we thought the place was very modern, very clean, reasonably spacious, very well equipped, very tastefully furnished and toasty warm. This place is upstairs, so it’s very light and had beautiful views onto Mont Blanc. It was very quiet and also very well equipped. We decided to self cater this holiday and so cooked most nights. Most of the utensils were new and we basically had all we needed.
We also found that whenever we did have any questions about the local area or had to work out how the cooker worked, if we needed anything at all, our landlords (who lived downstairs so this was very useful to us) were always extremely accommodating. They were always able to find what we needed and we never really wanted for anything throughout the whole trip.
Our ski holidays are very important to us and we are keen for a children to learn to ski. We have small children and we have to get them up and get them out the house to get to ski school in the morning so only being a short drive away was fantastic. We were really pleased to see how close we were to the Grand Montets slopes; it was a three to four minute car ride or five to ten minute journey by bus. The bus stop is a short walk from the chalet. It's also a short walk from the nursery slopes.
You wouldn’t think when you come to Chamonix that it could be a place where young children can actually learn to ski, because Chamonix is basically one of the most difficult ski resorts in the country if not the world. But actually we found the quality of the teaching we got here was fantastic, and at the end of what was effectively our second week skiing we had our eldest going down pretty steep red -runs with absolutely no problem at all, and that made it very pleasant for us. Being close to the local shops was also good: a short drive to the local supermarket, a little further to get into Chamonix, but basically getting your essentials was not a big problem after skiing. I would definitely recommend this apartment. We ourselves are planning to come back, we think it’s a fantastic area for skiing, we think the ski schools are great and we thought this was fantastic accommodation so we definitely want to come again.
