BIOLAY 2 - DESIGNER APARTMENT IN CENTRAL CHAMONIX

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Chamonix - Chalet Biolay 2

2 bedrooms, 1 shower-room, 1 bathroom, with parking & WiFi

Biolay 2 is a ground floor apartment which has been finished to a high standard. The entrance opens into the open plan living area which has a modern kitchen with breakfast bar and a dining table for 6. The lounge area has a double sofabed, satellite TV offering a selection of UK channels and WIFI. Leading off this area is a double bedroom with ensuite shower room, a twin bedroom and a bathroom. There is a terrace at the entrance of the apartment with mountain views toward Mont-Blanc and Brevent.

Biolay 2 has a separate ski/storage room and an allocated parking space. In addition, there is a large decked terrace and communal sauna shared by all 5 apartments which also houses the shared washing machine and dryer.

The Biolay apartments provide good quality accommodation in a quiet setting, not far from all Chamonix's facilities.

Chalet Biolay is situated in a quiet spot just to the south-east of the town centre, adjacent to the les Planards nursery slopes, on Chemin de la Cascade. It is 450 metres on foot to Avenue Michel Croz, the start of the main shopping streets in Chamonix.

The nearest supermarket is Casino in the town centre (650 metres) or Carrefour Market (same distance). There are a couple of restaurants and bars within 200 metres, but the main choices are in the town centre.

For access to the skiing, the nursery slopes of les Planards are a short walk away. For the main ski areas, the nearest is Brévent, just to the north of Chamonix centre, 1500 metres away (3 minutes by car or bus). The nearest bus stop is 200 metres away at Gare du Montenvers, with the main train station 450 metres away.

Skiing and snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts only, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18 km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.

Summer and the rest of the year: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb paragliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canyoning and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; the sports centre has an indoor and outdoor 50 m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi, the list goes on.
