Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Les Houches - The Alpine Retreat
Chalet - 4 bedrms, 3 bathrms, sleeps up to 10. Apt - 1 bedrm, 1 bathrm sleeps 4
The chalet + separate apt (part of the same property but with a private entrance) are superbly situated in the bustling ski resort of Les Houches, Chamonix (free bus and train available up/down the valley). Perfect for skiing in winter - right next to the pistes and just a 3 minute walk from the lifts and ski school - so close you can ski back for lunch! Ideal for alpine adventures in summer, in the heart of the renowned Chamonix Valley. There is a large private garden with unsurpassed views over the Mont Blanc massif. Just a 3-min walk from shops, restaurants, a bakery + several bars. The tastefully refurbished, exceptionally spacious accommodation has all mod cons, but retains a wealth of original features. Unlimited free wifi internet access and DVD/satellite TV are free.
You don't need 10 to enjoy the spacious farmhouse with its 3 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms; we often have groups of 4 - 6 people relaxing in the warmth and wonder of this beautiful farmhouse chalet.
Travel.: Most of our guests either fly to Geneva airport (EasyJet) which is less than an hour's drive/bus journey away, or they drive from the UK (8 hours from the French ferry ports). Other nearby airports include Turin (1 3/4 hrs drive) Lyon (2 hrs) and Milan (3 hrs). Car hire is available at all of these airports. We can arrange transfers from Geneva airport if required.

Rob and Suzanne LEA
We came to live at The Alpine Retreat and run it as a self-catering business in early 2001. Since then we have built up a large group of returning guests, many of whom have become family friends. Rob is a Professional Photographer specializing in large format landscape images and interior chalet/hotel photography. Suzanne is a professional Sports Massage Therapist and Fitness Trainer. We both really enjoy outdoor activities including running, paragliding and exploring these beautiful mountains.
We love the great outdoors and this lovely Alpine Retreat is a wonderful Savoyarde Farmhouse in the middle of a spectacular mountain setting, yet with a friendly little village close by. The original features of the property have been lovingly maintained, but we have subtly added all the mod cons needed for the C21! It's a real gem!
The Alpine Retreat is a really special place, which you will share if you stay here! The views, the activities, the peace, being surrounded by Nature all create a very positive energy and we find it both invigorating and yet somehow very relaxing. Our guests leave uplifted and energised!
