Guestbook comments from the manager

"We had a lovely week in the Old Library in Argentiere. The appartment was very clean, warm and comfortable with all the equipment we required and more - never thought we'd need such a big telly, but we still used it! It was extremely convenient for groceries and ski hire, souveniers etc as the shops are 50m away. The walk to the bus stop was not too onerous either - about 5 mins. The welcome and administration was excellent. The only thing we'd like to recommend is some extra shelves in the kitchen area. Otherwise we had a super week and would definitely consider going there again."

Everything we wanted

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful apartment with top-flight service from HomeAway. Nervous at first - so far away from home - but ended up being the easiest holiday I've ever planned. Argentiere magnificent, and HomeAway presents a seamless sign-up, payment, and key-transfer process! Best: totally safe and happy environment for my 4-year-old who (downside or part of his cultural education?) is now an insufferable cheese snob.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review. It's great to hear how much people love the Old Library. It's one of our most popular properties and always full in-season.

Thanks also for the kind comments for the rental and management teams. They weren't actually from HomeAway itself.

Mont Blanc Retreats handle the booking process for the Old Library and Mont Blanc Management manages the bookings once people arrive. We are really glad to hear you liked their service.

The Old Library Argentiere

  • 5 out of 5
This appartment is extremely well fitted out and very comfortable for a family or group holiday in the mountains. Situated in the centre of the very picturesque village of Argentiere,next to the Marie, it is only a few yards from all the village ammeneties. Great supermarket and other small shops,tourist infomation, ski school office,,lots of ski rentals, medical services, restaurants and bars to suit all pockets. Should you wish to eat at home the kitchen in the appartment is very well equiped. The amazing public transport makes getting about the valley to all the ski slopes easy although the use of a car can be useful with small children.
We enjoyed our holiday so much in this appartment that we have booked again for February 2013.

Old Library

  • 5 out of 5
All the comforts of home and more! Superbly furbished, clean and well-maintained. True to the description given. Close to the ski slopes for winter visitors and well situated for spring and summer hikes. Supermarket, bakers' and outdoor shops not five minutes away and Chamonix only 15 minutes drive. Regular buses and trains for people relying on public transport. Highly recommended!

Brilliant position and really nicely equipped

  • 5 out of 5
Great place: beautifully equipped with the Apple Mac, Wii and big TV with surround system.

Shops and bars all pretty much next door and the ski lift 5 mins walk away so its an easy holiday place without a car.

Management company were great and let us know they were there if we needed them, but didn't interfere. Apartment worked flawlessly anyway.

Would stay there again and thoroughly recommend it to others.

Argentiere is 10 minutes by car to the Alpine town of Chamonix Mont Blanc. It sits at the base of one of the best ski areas in the region, the Grands Montets and is only 5 minutes from La Balme ski area.

The Grands Montets is the highest ski domaine in the region, at 3300m at the top station! It is a heaven with skiers and boarders alike.

Switzerland and Italy are both close by.

The infamous Vallee Blanche ski run which descends 17km from the top of the Aiguille du Midi to Chamonix is accessed by the Aiguilee de Midi lift just 10 minutes away.

The summer has plenty to offer with walking, hiking and mountaineering on your door step as well as paragliding, rock climbing, white water rafting and mountain biking.
