Wonderful chalet in Chamonix!
We had a fantastic 5 days in Chamonix staying in Chalet Minouche. Walking distance to centre and cable cars. Lovely clean well appointed chalet with lovely views of the mountains. Hot tub must be amazing in winter but it weather was scorching so not for us. Five minutes walk to outdoor pool. So much to do in the outdoors in Chamonix valley then returning to a rainfall shower and chill out on the deck...perfect.
Cozy place, excellent location, friendly neighbors.
By far the best thing about this place is the location. It's just a short walk from town and two bus stops that will take you anywhere in and around Chamonix. Great views of the North facing slopes. While the sleeping spaces may be a little tight, they are plenty comfortable after a long day (or five) of skiing. The kitchen/living room/deck is a fantastic set up. Only issue we had while there was the wifi. But there was a jacuzzi-a very spacious jacuzzi.
Thanks for the great and honest review. We have changed the WiFi router for a much more powerful model and the signal is now strong throughout the chalet.
We hope to see you in Chamonix again soon.
Mont Blanc Retreats
Fabulous Place in a Great Location
The property was as described, very clean and had everything we needed for 2 weeks in Chamonix. The service from Mont Blanc Retreats was brilliant. I am gluten free and they helped out with recommendations for places to go. Very helpful advice and always at the end of the phone if we needed them. The very friendly owners live next door but never bothered us, only to say hello. The views from the property were fantastic, and the location is lovely and quiet for relaxing days and evenings yet only a few minutes walk into town for drinks and food (or fewer to the local bar). We could get to many of the ski lifts from the property without having to drive or take a bus, there are so many routes you really don't need to travel far. We would not hesitate to go back to this property, the views, tranquillity and facilities it offers can not be beaten in Chamonix. Hot tub particularly good after a day hiking!
Thanks for your honest review. We think it sums up Chalet Minouche perfectly and we hope to see you again in Chamonix.
not so cute as in pictures
the house is pretty cute but there is no privacy especially when you use the jacuzzy outside the house. there are a lot of people walking around the garden and you cannot relax yourself.
there is a lot of noise coming from the street near the house.
the cleaning was not perfect.
Sadly this is a fictitious and malicious attempt to damage our reputation and rating for this chalet that has been carried out by an angry guest who became rude and abusive when they did not get the paperwork they wanted after they had left.
They asked for an "invoice" for their accounts, and when we sent them a receipt, they became angry and abusive saying it wasn't what the wanted for their Italian accounts.
We are still not sure what they wanted, but clearly they didn't get whatever that was. As a company, we can not issue "invoices" for rentals once they have been paid. We can only issue "receipts" in this situation.
The guest also fails to point out that they Checked-In early at no change and then left 10 hours after Check-Out time without even having the decency to tell us they would. We had to reschedule cleaners to deal with it. Again, we didn't charge them.
All in all, a bizarre and vindictive attempt to smear us and this property by a strangely angry guest. Please read all the other reviews to build a more truthful image of this property.
Great property with a wonderful open plan living area. Marvellous views and a real sun trap.
The large comfortable living area was a lovely space relax in.
The covered balcony was great to sit in on a perfect February sunny day - in shorts with splendid views of Mont Blanc and the Aguille du Midi. It would afford good shade in Summer. The generous hot tub was a real hit with the whole family.
I couldn't praise the ski drop off and collect service enough. Great kit and all well fitting and delivered by a really pleasant chap.
Bob at Mont Blanc Retreats has been really helpful with our booking.
The location of the property is good as you are in Chamonix centre after a few minutes stroll on the level.
Chalet Minouche is ideally situated as it is within a few minutes walk of Chamonix centre whilst being very secluded and quiet. The listing description was borne out entirely by the reality, although the views were even more impressive from the balcony than the pictures convey!
The property was very clean and tidy and the regular linen change worked perfectly. The owners live next door ( the chalet is managed by a separate company) and they are really friendly and welcoming without in any way being intrusive.
We would certainly recommend Chalet Minouche for anyone who loves the mountains and the outdoor life. Parking is excellent and access to the Chamonix Valley couldn't be easier. The celebrated Chamonix micro brewery is a couple of minutes away, and a brilliant place to have a beer after a hard day in the hills.
We certainly hope to return!
Chamonix is one of the top three most visited natural sites in the world and sits directly under the north face of Mont Blanc, the summit itself can be seen from town. As such it is a world class destination for skiers & snowboarders in winter, walkers, climbers, mountaineers and para gliders in summer and international tourists 12 months of the year.
