Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Chamonix - Chamonix roof top apartment

2/3 beds,1 bathroom,kitchen,sitting room,large terrace,sleeps 5 -7 (8 at a pinch

Large, south facing penthouse apartment with spectacular views of Chamonix and the Mont Blanc range. 200 yards from the central square of Chamonix and 20 yards from the railway station, from where ski buses to all pistes depart regularly. This apartment has a large dining room and kitchen combined; a master bedroom with double bed and small balcony; a further bedroom with 4 beds (2 in bunk, 1 stow-away); sitting room with double sofa bed and small balcony; bathroom with double wash basin and combined bath/shower; separate loo; large private terrace (size of the entire flat again) and private underground parking for one car. It is equipped with TV, DVD, Broad Band Internet access, UK satellite, dish washer and washing machine. This is a non-smoking apartment.

Chamonix is an unbelievable mountain town - not at all like a typical purpose built resort. Steeped in history - from alpine climbing to the Olympics. The apartment is in the centre of the town with dozens of bars and restaurants, discos, shops and the Brevent & Auguille du Midi cable cars. Enjoy awesome views of the Mont Blanc range from the apartment. There's a great mix of ski terrain from town centre blues & reds to some of the best, deepest and steepest off-piste slopes in the World!

Geneva airport is a short 60 mile transfer away (easily arranged) or the motorway/ peage virtually runs to the door from Calais for Brits who drive. The central railway station is a 2 minute walk away so you don't even need a car once you're in town. Chamonix is an outstanding venue year-round! Buses to the whole of Chamonix valley leave from the station.

Summer details: Chamonix’s a year-round adventure play ground. You can walk, climb (any style to any standard), paraglide, hang glide, parachute (45 minutes away), mountain bike, fish, golf, party, eat, go bowling, swim, play tennis, dance at nightclubs, sight see, break out the water colour paints or gamble at the casino! It is all here for you.

What a lovely time

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to this very cute, clean chalet complete with snow man on the spacious balcony. We could not have been better located - barely 20 yards to the nearest ski hire shop (Pro Ski - 30% discount if you book online in advance) and super market and close to some great restaurants - would definitely recommend Atmosphere, which is 5 mins away - and 5 minutes from the main bus stop to the various pistes in the valley. John was very helpful and we'd definitely recommend this to a friend

What a view!!! and a great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment ideally located for the centre of town and bus pick ups for the slopes. About a 10 minute walk to the Brevent, slightly less to Aiguille de Midi. We drove to Grand Montets every day for the children's skiing lessons and having the underground car park and the ski lockers made this very easy (and warm) loading up. The apartment itself is very spacious and the balcony is huge, the master bedroom has amazing views of Mont Blanc.. The kitchen has everything you need for a stay and we cooked most nights before a walk around town or chilling out in the lounge/tv room. Thank you John for being so thorough with arrival and departure information, it made everything very straight forward. Also thanks for recommending Sanglard ski rental for the children; just a 2 minute walk and we had them kitted out for the week.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and infant son rented John's flat for a week and we had an excellent stay. Everything was as promised and there were no surprises. John was out of town but everything was ready when we arrived. John was very helpful setting up the booking and we would definitely rent from him again. We like to cook and the kitchen is well equipped. The location is amazing - right in the heart of the village and easy to walk to to shops, restaurants, and the bus stop to the ski hills. We spent a lot of time on the terrace which has amazing views. Well worth it.

Lovely flat in a great locatio

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this flat over New Year's. The flat was exactly as described and fit our family of five adults well. Centrally located, we enjoyed easy walking distance or bus/rail travel to skiing, boarding, hiking, sight-seeing, shopping and dining. With beautiful views of Mont Blanc to cap off our days. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. Highly recommended!

Quiet apartment at the center of Chamonix

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described. Located in the center of Chamonix, you have access to a lot of restaurants, shops and other attractions. If you travel in summer, like we did, the terrace is perfect to have a pleasant dinner. I strongly recommend this apartment.

Location

Nearest Airport
60 Miles
Geneva

250 metres from the central square of Chamonix and 100 metres from the railway station, from where ski buses to all pistes depart regularly.

Ski: For those who have been to Chamonix before, they will tell you that the off piste skiing is some of the finest in the World, but also there is on piste skiing to suit all levels and abilities.

The terrace is excellent additional living space (twice the size of the apartment) when the sun shines and is equipped with tables and chairs to seat eight people. The apartment is strictly non smoking as this is our home when guests are not staying. If you are a smoker then you will probably want to choose elsewhere.
