  • Chamonix Ski trip

    "My 2 sons and I stayed in Le Refuge for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year 2016. We used the apartment as a base to allow us to explore the Chamonix-Mont Blanc ski resorts and local area. Snow was thin so we sued Grand Mon't for the 3 days (approx 15 min drive). The apartment is in a great location in Chamonix, very close to the main town and local amenities - coffee shops and ski hire within a 5 min walk or the main town is within 10 mins. There is a local Spar for basics which helped us make our packed lunches for the day as food on the slopes is EXTREMELY expensive (approx €40-50 per person!!). The Spar and other super markets sell bread, water etc, but shop around. If you plan to drive (we did) I would sugget taking packed lunch food with you and topping up the essentials when you are there. We used Intersport for our ski hire, we did it online as it proved fairly priced and meant we could collect our kit as soon as we arrived. (approx €70pp for 3 days for Skis, Boots and Helmet). The return process was simple but parking can prove challenging so plan your rturn run wisely. We used a 30 min free parking slot and raced to the shop. With regards reception, I was extremely grateful that we could get the keys early as my son had fallen ill, so it was nice to be able to unload the car and relax after a loooong nights drive from the UK. The apartment itself was clean and well presented with everything you could need, with great views. Beds were comfortable with plenty of storage for all our kit including the ski gear. The underground parking was excellent, although low so roof box user beware!! This parking made getting out to the slopes easier, having not to worry about defrosting the car windows!! With regards arrival, the info booklet was a little light, there was info on aririval/departure procedures but I felt it could have contained more useful stuff such as cooker & TV instructions, resturants and transport . On arrival we were also informed that snostation had a deal with a local hire company. It would have been useful to know this at the time of booking, esepcially as the hire shop was very close to the apartment. Other than that, we had a great time and would recommend the flat to our friends. Many Thanks Mark, Matt and Ben"

  • A lovely place to stay in the Alps!

    "The ground floor of the chalet didn't disappoint at all. It was exactly as in the photos - very roomy and well-equipped. There was plenty of space for all 7 of us - 3 generations - and for the cousins to eat as well when they came to stay nearby. The big outside table enabled us to enjoy meals outside and although there was no garden as such, there was space for the children to play in safety. The situation off the busy main road meant it was quiet, but it was only a 15 minute walk to the only (but rather expensive) supermarket. We were fairly near the station and used the tourist card for free transport by train or bus in the valley, and we were only 5 minutes from the cable car up to the Grands Montets glacier. There's also a lovely play area for children in the nearby woods, with a stream which flows into a paddling pool and on down to the torrent. We enjoyed waking up to the magnificent view of Mont Blanc and the glacier from several of the rooms and from the terrace! We were constantly grabbing the camera whichever way we looked. Madame Ravanel was very friendly and welcoming and we can recommend this place with no hesitation!"

  • Lovely place to stay

    "the chalet is absolutely lovely! Plently of logs available for the fire and the wind on arrival was very welcome! I encourage anyone staying in the area to employ Basile's services - the food was wonderful and he went above and beyond what we asked for in terms of laying the table, serving the food and drinks. The house was as promised and well equipped to the extent that one could go and live there for a long time."

    "The view was spectacular, the apartment was comfortable and Melanie was great in attending to everything I needed! The size was great for one person or a couple."
