About Xavier Wartelle

I am a French-American citizen living near San Francisco in the Bay Area. I spent my career between France and the US in high tech ventures. I am passionate about mountaineering and climbing.

Xavier Wartelle purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Xavier Wartelle chose Chamonix

Chamonix is the capital of climbing and a wonderful place for skiing and hiking. I started going to Chamonix in 1994 and I still love it. In 2010, I decided to undertake a major remodeling of the apartment, tearing everything apart to build a unique and very comfortable place. I designed it myself, choosing the best materials I could find. I wanted a modern open space, with tons of lighting and comfort. I also wanted to give some character to the apartment with modern art pieces.

What makes this apartment unique

The Modern Art is in the heart of the town with easy access to all facilities including the ski lifts at 10mn.

Still, the place is very quiet, being on a quiet street and equipped with noise isolation windows.

The design and the artwork of the apartment are unique. There are few places like this in the mountains!

The kitchen and the bathrooms are state of the art as well as the heating system. Everyone loves these luxurious appointments and comforts!

Luxury and modern apartment in downtown Chamonix
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

super-modern, well-located, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is at ground level, so people do pass by outside, but you do have views of Mont Blanc. Everything works, although we--as non-modern people--had some trouble figuring out how to operate the devices. Our local liaison, Andy, was extremely helpful whenever we had a problem. The best attributes of the apartment were its proximity to everything---buses, lifts, grocery stores, restaurants--and the high quality of the appliances. The owner is also extremely nice and helpful with suggestions, rapid responses, etc.

Great property, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous property right in the heart of Chamonix. Modern, spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Literally steps from the main shopping & dining spots, and a short walk to the slopes. I picked this place for the location, but also because I wanted a comfortable space for my wife to enjoy since she is not much of a skier. I wanted a place that felt more like home than a hotel room. Modern Art definitely fit the bill, and met all of our expectations.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Right in the middle of town, but still on a quiet side street. Slopes were right there! Fantastic layout! Extremely convenient and comfortable. Beautifully upscale.

Luxury and Comfort Combined

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very luxurious with new EVERYTHING! The kitchen is well appointed which allowed me to enjoy one of my favorite past times, cooking. The views of Mount Blanc from the living room and kitchen are incredible! The central location of this apartment means shops, restaurants and hiking trails are just steps out the front door. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, better than my bed at home! As you can see in the pictures, the apartment is spacious and bright. I look forward to returning to this gem of a vacation home.

A dream wonderland!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in Chamonix and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay...

The apartment is perfectly maintained and beautifully furnished. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our stay feel like home.

This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind, explore and savor the natural beauty of these special mountain!

Did I mention that it is a very romantic place?

We just got engaged and are considering coming back for our honeymoon!!!

Beyond excellent, five stars, luxurious and functional in one of the most beautiful natural settings

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing apartment right in the heart of Chamonix...two steps from Le Moustache, one of the best restaurants in Chamonix. The apartment is modern, clean, spacious and still feels warm and cozy!

It has a well designed kitchen/dining area, you can easily prepare meals and eat in if you tire of eating out. Perfect for a family or two couples. The management company is professional and accommodating!

Beautiful views of the Mont Blanc!

Owner's Response: This apartment is very unique in Chamonix because it's very modern with a large open space. You can prepare your meal in the well equipped kitchen or lunch/dine out in one of the many restaurants in downtown Chamonix. The management is indeed very professional up to the standard of the apartment.

Legendary Chamonix

Cham' is a destination popular the world over. In the streets of this high-mountain town you'll hear languages from every corner of the globe. But the people who come to this 'summit meeting' share the same way of thinking, the same love for mountaineering, its legends and its ethics.

When you're out shopping in the town center, wherever you are look up and you'll see 'it' there… 4,810 metres (15,781 ft) of rock, snow, ice and dreams of things to come.

The property is in walking distance to groceries, pharmacies, bookstores, many restaurants and bars, post office and much much more.
