Owner info

About the owner: This is our family home and feels like a home from the moment you step in. We would like our guests to enjoy our books, games and library of English movies. We expect our guests will treat our home with the respect they have for their own homes.

Why the Owner Chose Le Tour, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France:
This is a wonderful family holiday home. We actually lived there for 2 full years with our 5 children aged 2 to 12. This will account for the comfortable feel of the chalet and the myriad of children's toys and family games. The chalet enjoys a unique position of privacy and safety for children to play in the garden and sledge in the adjoining field in the winter.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The position of the chalet means it gets the very last sun in the valley every day and there are few things better than watching the sun go down in the mountain silence on a snowy terrace with a kir royale ................. The chalet has a wonderful terrace with sunny southerly aspect. In the summer, there is a large table and chairs for outdoor dining and a good barbecue. It is a wonderful entertainment space and unique in the valley for its position and privacy.
