Excellent. Many thanks.
Great location and great vacation
We had a wonderful 4 nights in Chamonix and found Ian and Sara were perfect hosts. Both were extremely helpful answering questions and providing recommendations before our arrival and check-in was a breeze. The proximity to Grands Montets couldn't be beat. The apartment we had was a bit rustic but was very easy to feel comfortable and was perfect as a base for our 3 days of skiing. Entry room was just the thing for keeping our skis and boots. Kitchen is small but functional. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here on our next (hopefully longer!) trip to Chamonix.
Comfortable flat. Great location. Helpful owners on site
Down a quiet lane just off main road into Argentiere. 10 mins walk to Grand Montets lifts. Spacious living area and comfortable twin rooms.
We rented from Ian and Sara for one week. We were two adults with our pup and 15 month old. Ian and Sara are very friendly, full of area knowledge, and accommodating. They purchased a baby chair for our use and lent us hiking maps and a baby cot. The location of the apartment is very convenient. It is less than a 10 minute drive into the town of Chamonix. We walked into the village of Argentiere several times which took about 10 minutes as this apartment is on the outskirts. The apartment is located in the back of the house. The other rental apartment is accessed from the front, and the family lives on the ground floor. There is a garden which wraps around the home, and our dog and little one appreciated having some space for play. The apartment is quite basic but adequate. We were looking for a place where we could feel comfortable having our dog stay with us. It works as a place if you plan on being outside doing activities most of the time (which is what you're visiting for, right?). The kitchen is appropriate for basic meal preparation. There's really only room for one person to work on dinner. The rental felt like a relatively safe apartment for our wandering baby as well. Our baby especially loved watching the train go by the home regularly. The sound is no issue at all. We loved having quick access to hiking trails straight from the house. You can walk down by the river or head to the forest. The Petite Balcon Sud trail was quite nice for some late afternoon walks with the pup. It's also a short walk to the Gran Montets lift and hiking near there. Though this is an older apartment in an old farmhouse, I felt like the cleaning before our arrival could have been at a better standard. Overall, this apartment worked for our needs and we appreciated the hospitality of the owners.
*** Restaurant Le Grenier in Argentiere was delicious for a couple of omelettes! The owner's wife (the chef) opened up her kitchen early to accommodate us! We were very relieved!
Great location and facilities
We enjoyed our stay, the chalet had everything we needed plus reliable WiFi, would stay again without hesitation
Sara could not have been a more welcoming, attentive and helpful host. Sara helped to take my parents skiing, which was above and beyond the call of duty. My father is recovering post stroke and her reassurance and knowledge of disabled skiing difficulties was amazing.
The flat was light, beautiful, well equipped and well thought out. The storage was excellent, the lovely shower supplied endless hot water and there is nothing I would want to change. The proximity to the grands montets ski school, lifts and also the bus stop was extremely convenient. We hope to come back !!
