About the property

2/3 beds,bathroom,kitchen,sitting room,large terrace,sleeps 5 -7 (8 at a pinch)

Large, south facing penthouse apartment with spectacular views of Chamonix and the Mont Blanc range. 200 yards from the central square of Chamonix and 20 yards from the railway station, from where ski buses to all pistes depart regularly. This apartment has a large dining room and kitchen combined; a master bedroom with double bed and small balcony; a further bedroom with 4 beds (2 in bunk, 1 stow-away); sitting room with double sofa bed and small balcony; bathroom with double wash basin and combined bath/shower; separate loo; large private terrace (size of the entire flat again) and private underground parking for one car. It is equipped with TV, DVD, Broad Band Internet access, UK satellite, dish washer and washing machine. This is a non-smoking apartment.

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 in the centre of the town with dozens of bars and restaurants, discos, shops and the Brevent & Auguille du Midi cable cars. Enjoy awesome views of the Mont Blanc range from the apartment. There's a great mix of ski terrain from town centre blues & reds to some of the best, deepest and steepest off-piste slopes in the World!

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 central railway station is a 2 minute walk away so you don't even need a car once you're in town. Chamonix is an outstanding venue year-round! Buses to the whole of Chamonix valley leave from the station.

Summer details: Chamonix’s a year-round adventure play ground. You can walk, climb (any style to any standard), paraglide, 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.

The apartment has four rooms, bathroom and loo. This can be used in a variety of ways. We have it set out as one bedroom (double bed), further bedroom (three beds and stow-away), TV room (double sofa bed) and dining room (kitchen combined) with access to terrace. The terrace is excellent additional living space (twice the size of the apartment) when the sun shines and is equipped with tables and chairs to seat eight people. The apartment is strictly non smoking as this is our home when guests are not staying. If you are a smoker then you will probably want to choose elsewhere.

Home in Chamonix!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights in this wonderful flat in February 2017. We were pleased to be able to walk a few meters to the flat from the train station after a long day traveling. The location can't be beat, it is also just a minute's walk from all of the restaurants, bars, and services. Inside, the sun bathes the living room, the balconies, and the terrace with light. Those areas are so inviting it was sometimes difficult to leave to explore Chamonix! We were able to use the ground-floor ski locker to keep our skis out of the apartment, and the elevator was a welcome site after a long day of skiing. The layout is nice as well - we were happy to be able to sit at a nice dining table and have our girls play on the futon next to it or on the terrace. Having two bedrooms in addition to the separate living room with its own door was nice for keeping things quiet and letting the early risers not disturb those who wanted to sleep late. All in all we definitely recommended the apartment!

Ideally suited

Thanks John. Apartment was ideal for us (hence third visit). Loads of space and great location. Underground car park a real boon when the snow dumped.

Nearest Airport
60 Miles

250 metres from the central square of Chamonix and 100 metres from the railway station, from where ski buses to all pistes depart regularly.

Ski: For those who have been to Chamonix before, they will tell you that the off piste skiing is some of the finest in the World, but also there is on piste skiing to suit all levels and abilities.
