The most important criteria for choosing your holiday apartment in Chamonix is location. Get it wrong (or worse be mislead by 'out of town' properties) and you can't enjoy Chamonix to the full. Our location couldn't be better. Enjoy nights in or 5 minutes walk away you're hitting the action in Chamonix town or hopping on a bus to the slopes. A 10 minute walk takes off piste hounds to the Auguille du Midi lift station for the Vallee Blanche. Outside, in summer, is a very pleasant communal garden that's free for your enjoyment.
Chamonix is an unbelievable mountain town - not at all like a typical purpose built resort. Steeped in history - from alpine climbing to the Olympics. The apartment is minutes walk from the bustling town centre, dozens of bars and restaurants, discos, shops and the Brevent & Auguille du Midi cable cars. Enjoy awesome views of Mont Blanc and the Brevent ski face from the apartment. There's a great mix of ski terrain from town centre blues & reds to the deepest and steepest off-piste slopes.
Geneva airport is a short 60 mile transfer away (easily arranged) or the motorway/ peage virtually runs to the door from Calais for Brits who drive. The main bus terminal is a 5 minute walk away so you don't need a car once to explore the town and shop etc. Chamonix is an outstanding venue year-round! Don't be fooled into booking a property for your precious holiday that is in some obscure corner of the Chamonix valley and not in the town centre area where you have access to apres ski, restaurants, night life and shopping.
Summer details: Chamonix’s a year-round adventure play ground. You can walk, climb (any style to any standard), paragliding, hang glide, parachute (45 minutes away), mountain bike, fish, golf, party, eat, go bowling, swim, play tennis, dance at nightclubs, sight see, break out the water colour paints or gamble at the casino! It is all here for you.

About Barry Roberts
We are a family of 4 that loves adventure. Our youngest daughter started skiing at 23 months. The oldest started skiing off piste from the top of Grands Montet age 6. Dad is an Everest summiteer who loves skiing and paragliding. Mom is an ultra distance runner and keen skier. The owners have lived between Chamonix and the Lake District for 15 years and are busy raising two young daughters who think of Cham as home and climb, ski, bike and dance! We know what families need to make a successful holiday and great, easy care thoughtfully appointed accommodation is key to that. That's why we're proud to provide modern facilities and top appliances, convenience to shops, easy care features such as tiled floors, no-fuss elegant decor (resilient Dulux 10x tougher paint throughout) and no knick knacks, fragile decorations or any owner's personal clutter to worry about breaking!
Barry Roberts purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Barry Roberts chose Chamonix
These are comfortable family apartments in the heart of Chamonix and are thoughtfully equipped to maximize your holiday pleasure and comfort. They are purpose built for adventure, families and friends and in the heart of Chamonix! In the ground floor flat there are 3 bedrooms so there's space and privacy for 6 without cramming sofa beds in the living area. The equally equally nice apartment on the 3rd floor with MB views sleeps 4 in two bedrooms so if you're travelling with another family or have a big group then you can book apartments to be near to each other. Both apartments have free wifi and professional ski boot driers.
What makes this Apartment unique
Central location 5 mins walk to the main bus station or train stop (ok - 10 minutes with little ones in tow). Professional quality wall mounted ski boot dryer for 5 pairs and an internal secure ski rack in the ground floor property. A ground floor ski locker comes with the 3rd floor flat and there's a pro ski boot drier (4 pairs) in the apartment. There's a lift to the 3rd floor property. There are several UK plug sockets in both flasts to reduce the need for adapters. New oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. The world's most conscientious cleaner (Lisa) who ensures the apartments are gleaming when you arrive for your precious holiday! In the ground floor property we provide plastic kid's dishware and cups, picnic tupperware and flasks to help you keep your costs down on the slopes as well as a proper family sized fridges for groceries, beer and easy self catering. Free fast broadband wifi in both apartments.

Nice, clean and fantastically located
Very practical, clean (bathroom is new) and a friendly owner. It can easily accommodate a large group of people. While the flat is not luxurious, it has everything you may need for a ski trip.
The building is fantastically located in a quiet street, just few meters from town center (5 minute walk) and Bus Stop for Ski lifts (2 minute walk).
Stayed here on a four day trip in a group of four guys. Couldn't fault anything about the apartment - despite being compact it was perfect for our group as there were four (comfortable) single beds. The kitchen, whilst very small, is fully equipped so we were able to cook dinner a couple of times. Living room was very cosy and comfortable for four, with a good sized dining table, and having English satellite TV was great for keeping us entertained in the evenings. Just as pleasing was the location - we arrived by bus from the airport, so the fact that the main bus station was only a five minute stroll away was extremely helpful. You can also find a shop (Casino) and restaurants at a similar distance. The lifts are further, but that seems to be an issue no matter where in Chamonix you stay, as it is a sprawling resort. Finally, the owner, Barry, is extremely helpful and responsive. He was even kind enough to let us check out late, so we could enjoy our last day on the slopes as much as possible. All in all a very pleasant stay at this apartment.
Excellent base for the ski area
Thanks Barry for providing such a great home from home for us on my 40th birthday celebration skiing holiday. An unforgettable experience for us and especially my two girls (8 and 5 years old) who had their first ski experience in Chamonix. The apartment had everything we needed, was excellently maintained and with specific and concise instructions with all the info you would ever need and was ideally located to the Chamonix Sud bus station (few mins walk) and Cham town centre also a few mins walk. I would like to recommend La Belgique A to anyone who wants to stay in Chamonix. The owner Barry was quick to respond to all correspondence.Thanks again Barry- we will be back!
Thanks folks! Welcome back anytime.
Just what we needed.
The apartment had everything we needed as a family with two young children. It is in a great location being a short walk to the centre of town. It is a good size and well set up with toys and games etc for children. It is well maintained and clean and the owner was consistently quick to respond to my queries and was very helpful. I would happily stay here again. We had a great time. Thanks Barry.
Thanks folks. I'm really pleased the apartment met your needs. See you back soon! Cheers Barry
Homey Apartment Close to Heart of Chamonix
We booked this apartment for four and it was great. Only about a five minute walk to the heart of Chamonix where you can find nice restaurants, shopping or groceries. It was also only a five minute walk to a central bus station serviced by all the ski buses. The apartment was not large, but plenty big. It had everything we needed to feel at home. We would stay here again if we should ever visit Chamonix again.
Thanks for visiting and your feedback Barry. You've nailed it and will help future holiday makers appreciate just how crucial location is to make the most of a visit to Cham to easily get to the slopes by bus AND have car-free access to the great high street shops, bars and eateries. Many thanks. Barry
A definitely super rental
We stayed for a week at Le Belgique A . The apartment was clean and well-maintained,comfortable, homely , and calm with a well-equipped kitchen as indicated in the description . Its location is ideal, hardly five minutes'walk from the centre of Chamonix with shops, bars, restaurants...and close to the Aiguille du Midi departure . I would definitely recommend this rental .
Thanks folks! We are really pleased you enjoyed staying in the 2 bedroomed third floor apartment. Come back anytime! Best regards. Barry Roberts
The apartment is in central Chamonix. The address is 338 Ave Ravanel Le Rouge, which is the continuation of the 'high street' Rue du Docteur Paccard, which heads west of town (down to Lac Gailland and the climbing crags). Residence le Belgique is 200m from the start of the shops and bars on the corner (and up around the corner is the Prieure Hotel, for those who know Chamonix). We are opposite the Gite Vagabond, and around the corner from the main bus terminal and the bowling alley. It's a 10 minute walk to the Auguille du Midi cable car station. We are truly in Chamonix, not in the suburbs or Les Houches! We're in the middle of grid C5 on the Chamoinx town map. If you want access to great shopping, bars & restaurants then you want to be in Chamonix and based where you can walk in the evenings for a night out. Taxis are very expensive and rarely available if you end up further out of town and don't want to drink and drive
Other Activities: Adventure ropes course, animal parks, indoor climbing wall
