Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Chamonix - Jardins de L'Androsace

2 bedrooms, mezzanine, 2 bathrooms, large living room, sleeps 6

Our top floor apartment has been equipped as you would want your home to be. It is perfectly positioned next to the ESF office, ski school meeting point, Tourist Office and within five minutes walking of absolutely anything else that you might need.

The modern living room has a fabulous view of Mont Blanc, with the bedrooms looking up the valley towards Les Grands Montets and Le Tour. The beds in the bedrooms have properly sprung mattresses with matching divans (by “And So to Bed”) and the L-shaped couch was made to order (by “Highly Sprung”), everything was bought with comfort in mind. The apartment is fully equipped with TV, UK satellite, DVD player, Hi-Fi, Wi-Fi, washing machine and dryer and a fully fitted kitchen.

While a car is not necessary, many people feel that it makes life easier in the valley (particularly if you are skiing up at Les Grands Montets), we have a dedicated underground garage (so no scraping ice off in the morning).

Ski pass service is available.

Winter in Chamonix: With such a high elevation and the micro climate created by Mont Blanc, Chamonix has a long snow-sure season. There are slopes for every level of skier or boarder and we are happy to discuss what will suit your needs.

For beginners, meet your instructors next door in the morning. For intermediates, it is possible to wander over to the Savoy nursery slopes and take a very short drag lift up to the main Brevant lift to get access to the south facing slopes of there and Flegere (saves a walk up the hill in boots).

The bus stop just 200 meters away (behind the Tourist Office) allows free transport to Le Tour (offerering a good mix of terrain for all levels) and Les Grands Montets with it's large north facing slopes giving some awesome off-piste opportunities.

The lift for the Aguille du Midi, is a five minute walk, do take a guide for your safety if you plan to ski/board in the Vallee Blanche - it is stunning and worth the the cost of getting a professional to show you the way.

Summer in Chamonix: The town of Chamonix is busy all year round, with walkers, climbers and golfers dominating the summer months. Days tend to be warm, but evenings are rarely oppressive as temperatures quickly cool to a comfortable level in the mountain atmosphere.

There is much to do for all age groups, including climbing (try the indoor climbing wall in Les Houches with an instructor if you are a beginner), walking, golf, a great swimming pool, cycling, tennis, parapenting, fly fishing or just relaxing in a great atmosphere.

Our favourite time of the summer is around the 21st June, when the whole of France has it’s 'fete de la musique' (what must be the biggest music festival in the world) and every bar seems to live music all absolutely free to watch.

Children Are Welcome: Children essentials are stored in the ski cave with the apartment - a travel cot, high chair, baby bath, safety gates, etc. Chamonix offers a number of baby-sitting services or children can be placed in ski school to allow yourselves to go off and ski.

The French have a wonderful attitude to the young, with children being welcome in most bars and restaurants. Chamonix is no exception, with some of the best play parks and areas you will ever see. It is not unusual to see toddlers dancing in front of a stage in a bar as a band is playing (usually before the real apres-ski crowd arrive and it gets a little crowded for them).

Best spot in the heart of Chamonix

  • 5 out of 5
Chamonix is a great holiday destination. The apartment is in the heart of the village, and yet very quiet at night.

We never needed to use the car as everything we needed was a short walk away, including food shops, restaurants, ski lifts etc. The apartment was perfect for our family and is very child friendly. The views from the apartment are amazing! The apartment is very well maintained and has everything one could need. Wifi was very handy to help keep in touch with everyone back home.

We're defenitely booking again next year, I would recommend this apartment!

Excellent propery - a real home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful apartment in central Chamonix. Well appointed and great for a group of friends sharing with large and comfortable living space for socialising. The central location makes getting to the slopes easy and apres activities easy to access. The owner could not be more helpful. Would love to return again.

Comfortable, spacious, great location, fab views!

  • 5 out of 5
We chose this property as we wanted a level of comfort and space above the usual ski apartments and we definitely got that. The apartment is very spacious, with very comfortable beds and sofa.

It's in a great location close to the main street of restaurants but tucked away enough to be in a quiet spot and has amazing views from the windows!

It is well equipped with a good shower, good tv and great wifi.

If I have to find fault it would be with the kitchen which could do with a makeover but I'm being picky. You don't go to Chamonix to cook!

We would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic apartment - Perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I (3 adult and 2 children) went to Chamonix, since I had to participate in Ultratrail run UTMB.
We chose this occasion, mostly because of the location right in the center of the city. And the apartment is in the middle of town and yet very quiet.

The apartment is very cosy and warm, and there are all the facilities you need. It has a very beautiful view to the Mont Blanc glacier, the church and the roofs of the town houses.

We simply loved to stay there and would certainly consider staying here another time.

I was personally very happy for the lift after the race.... as even running down in the private car park.

Car: not necessary

The residence is ideally situated at the top of a lane that enters directly onto the main pedestrian street of the town centre. This location ensures a quiet stay, while being in the heart of the town. There is very little that is more than five minutes walk from the apartment.

There is a ski rental shop on the ground floor of the residence itself. Within 100 meters of the front door are the ESF office and the meeting point for ski/board lessons, the Tourist Office, a bakery, a supermarket and the main street with it’s selection of bars, restaurants and shops. Within 200 meters are the nursery slope of Le Savoy (where the ESF have a children’s ski camp and you can take a drag to the main Brevant ski lift) and the bus stop for free transport to Le Tour and Grands Montets.

If you have transport, within easy access are Courmayeur (there is a free bus during the ski season), Verbier, Megeve, Flain, Geneva, Annecy and Lausanne. All offer a chance to see/ski something different.

Golf: The Golf Club de Chamonix has an 18 hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones senior. A beautiful course with fabulous views of Mont Blanc and the mountains around. The course is open from May/June (depends upon when the snow clears) to late Autumn and the arrival of the snow again. All equipment (except shoes and clothing) may be rented at the shop. They have a web-site and it is worth checking out if you are considering playing in the summer months.

The golf course at Verbier is an hour from Chamonix and that at Crans-Montana is an hour and a half from Chamonix.

Ski: Chamonix is a famous ski resort that is good for beginners (well maintained nursery slopes in town and at Le Tour), good also for intermediates and experts. The skiing is arranged over five distinct areas that are served by a free shuttle bus service, including access to the Vallee Blanche. We have spent the whole of the past twelve winters in the valley and have taken numerous friends skiing/boarding that have ranged from total beginners to extreme skiers and everything in between. Please do contact us if you wish to discuss the skiing (we are happy to talk about the valley even if you don’t want to rent the apartment).
