I discovered the Chamonix Valley in 1999 and was transfixed by its beauty and was able to purchase Chalet Altitude in Autumn of that year.

I spend time each year at the chalet and also in Scotland, Kent and Canada. I would like to spend more time in France at the chalet, but currently its not possible to do that !

It is a pleasure to have guests to stay at the chalet , either summer or winter and who appreciate it .A vicarious pleasure for me....

Janet Jones purchased this chalet in 1999

This is an All seasons, sel-catering chalet - In Winter -Chalet Altitude in the Chamonix Valley is perfectly located for winter sports , with the ski piste access at the end of the chalet's large garden,

GREAT HOLIDAY

  • 4 out of 5
So good to have so much room, not like many that are like small caravans. Every thing you need, wifi, washing m/c, drier etc. Convenient for the lifts but a car is essential. The views are magnificent. We were there for 3 weeks and had a great time.We will certainly return as we love the skiing in Les Houches. Very good customer service, could not be more helpful. Thank you Jan and Monique

Chalet Altitude is located on a sunny hillside next to the ski piste and trails of the village of Les Houches in the Chamonix valley. Set in peaceful and tranquil surroundings, yet it is close to all facilities and services.

Marvellous views of the Mont Blanc Massif Mountain chain - this is an all-seasons chalet.

Chamonix and the Mont Blanc Tunnel, leading to Italy ,are a 12 minute drive away.

The Aiguille du Midi cable car is a thrilling journey giving panoramic views of the Valley.

In winter, it is possible to ski in and out from the end of the chalet garden which is next to the ski run, so accessing the Prarion gondola station downhill ( ski shops and cafes there) . No need to use the car !

The gondola takes you up to the Prarion plateau above the chalet. Here you will find ski school meeting places.

Also, there is a chairlift, a 7 minute walk uphill from the chalet and this connects to another lift which takes you up to the top of the mountain and the plateau, with cross-country and snowshoe trails to be found as well as downhill skiing and ski school rendez vous.

Plenty of mountain restaurants around!

Walking downhill from the chalet, a 5 minute walk - 2 bends downhill - the Bellevue piste can be accessed, taking you to the Bellevue cablecar station .

Both the Prarion and Bellevue stations are located in Les Houches village and have car parking.

In summer, there many activities to participate in - walking, climbing ... or just relax - good restaurants to enjoy, both in Les Houches village, Chamonix and also in the mountains. Tennis courts found in the village. Lake Passy - 30 minute drive away, swimming and windsurfing .An excellent base for visiting historic towns, like Annecy and Geneva or to explore Italy......

Other Activities: whitewater rafting

Golf: The nearest golf course is the far side of Chamonix town, about 20 minutes drive.

There is a free bus , with a stop next to Prarion station and Bellevue cable car station, which will take summer and winter visitors to many other areas in the Chamonix Valley.

Also a little local train station for the 'snow' train in Les Houches, accessible only by foot called the Viaduct St Marie,( in addition to the main Les Houches train station.)

It also operates in summer and its complimentary to visitors.

The local ski area caters for all levels of skiers and there are plenty of runs to try out. The Les Houches black run hosts The Mens Downhill Kandahar Ski race most years.

There is an Ice Rink in the village.

A car is essential for families and most visitors, but it is possible to do without a car and walk up to chalet from Les Houches in around 25 minutes and downhill is even faster. I do it myself !

Notes:
Chalet Altitude has fantastic views from every window and the large dining balcony looks on to the Mont Blanc Massif Mountain Chain and down the valley to Chamonix and the Mont Blanc Tunnel , both only 15 minutes away by car ! Italy and Switzerland within easy reach... The chalet has a private drive, and you can park on the drive or at the top. It is accessible to all car types, but in winter it is advisable to park at the base of the drive. Bring snow chains in winter, just in case of heavy snowfall ! A car is essential for families and most visitors (but not ALL visitors) to access mountain hiking, biking ,climbing, ski shops, supermarkets,cafes and restaurants, cable car. These are 20 minute walk away downhill/ 30 minutes uphill. The Tourist Office and Post Office and supermarkets are further along the pretty alpine village of Les Houches. There is a secure bike shed. On request, a pet may be allowed in summer months, June to September. Sorry, no pets in winter !
