Location description from owner

The Rhône-Alpes region

The Haute Savoie region borders Switzerland and Italy. Geneva is the closest major city and is within a hours drive from the chalet. Annecy with its picturesque lake and beautiful old town is known as the prettiest town in the Alps and is approximately an hours drive. Italy is easily accessible through the Mont Blanc Tunnel with Milan being approximately 3 hours drive.

The Chamonix Valley lies at the foot of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain. Chamonix is the main town in the valley with shops, bars and restaurants and has a vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere. The town, which is surrounded by the Mont Blanc mountain range, has narrow streets and traditional alpine architecture giving it a distinctive and unique quality.

Les Houches

The local village of Les Houches is a pretty village in the traditional Haute Savoie style and is just a 5 minute drive from the chalet or a 20 minute walk along scenic paths. The village is designated a Famille Plus village specialising in childrens activities and there are numerous walks and hikes close to the chalet. During school holidays there is a wide range of activities provided specially for children. The local shops provide a range of regional products and sports equipment.

The chalet is 10 minutes drive from Chamonix town which offers numerous possibilities. For breathtaking views the Montenvers train to the Mer de Glace or a trip on the Aiguille du Midi cable car are highly recommended. As well as walking, hiking and mountain biking through spectacular mountain scenery the lake at Passy offers swimming and watersports and there is horse riding within walking distance of the chalet. Tennis and golf, on one of the worlds best courses (open until the first snow), are also close at hand and there is a sports centre in Chamonix with an open air swimming pool. The area also has a number of spas for more leisurely days.

A mecca for sports enthusiasts of all ages, the first Winter Olympic Games were held in Chamonix in 1924. Skiing and mountaineering form the main economy of Chamonix. The Vallée Blanche gives a memorable excursion through glaciers and magnificent scenery (guide needed). The Kandahar World Cup ski race is held annually on the beautiful Piste Verte in Les Houches.

“Excellent Chalet in a beautiful area.”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2012

Well equiped and comfortable chalet in a great location for exploring the Chamonix Valley. 2 minutes drive to the lifts at Les Houches and 10 minutes in to Chamonix itself. A very warm and cosy place to stay especially when the log fire is roaring after a hard day on the slopes. With the choice of several ski areas within 20 minutes or even a trip through the tunnel to Italy, there is plenty for everyone.

Thank you for your review and I’m glad you enjoyed your holiday. I know it is hard to do without internet and I am looking at the possibility.

“A lovely homely chalet”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2012

The location of Chalet Bois de Neige is brilliant- although only really accessible by car. In terms of skiing you are a very short drive from the ski lifts in Les Houches; and there are plenty of ski hire facilities in the village. The other areas in the Chamonix zone are also only a short drive away so there’s plenty of options for varied skiing. The amenities are all close by; with a good Super U in the Les Houches village, and Chamonix provides an abundance of supermarkets, tourist shops and restaurants. The chalet itself has a lovely homely feel. It was clean and tidy upon our arrival, and there was easily enough room for five adults to comfortably live for a week. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you might need for a self-catering holiday. There are also lovely mountain views out of the kitchen, lounge and bedroom windows. The owners were extremely helpful with local information and we experienced a very efficient booking process. All in all we had a lovely holiday; with a great chalet to relax in after hard days skiing.

Thank you for your review and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay at our chalet. Guest comments are always helpful. Perhaps you will consider it again.

“Superb chalet! Was well equipped and extremely comfortable.”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2012

4 adults and 2 children stayed in April and had a fantastic time - the chalet was very well equipped to deal with our every need - the jacuzzi bath really helped to sorted out our sore skiing muscles at the end of the day! The kitchen had everything we required to cook and the comfortable lounge meant we could watch dvds in the evening. Excellent location - great views of the mountains and only a 20 minute walk/ couple of minutes drive to the supermarket. I would definitely recommend this chalet to anyone wanting to explore the chamonix region!

Thank you for your review - our first! Feedback is always useful. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed the chalet.
