Beautiful, relaxing and convenient

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful chalet with great features and tons of room. There were only a few of us, so we had tons of extra room.

Photos do a good job of showing the interior, but the views are spectacular, and the nearby shops, restaurants and businesses made sure we could get what we needed for the trip.

We flew into Geneva and drove to the chalet, and it is just as convenient as advertised.

Excellent place, and would not hesitate to return.

Great place for a break in Chamonix

  • 5 out of 5
Fantastic location - charm of Les Houches, excellent access to the lift (100 -150 yeards), all small shops (bakery!!!!, delicatessen!!!! restaurant!!!!) around. The chalet is probably a bit tight for 10 people, 8 will fit very comfortably. Well equipped - we had all we wanted.

Skiing is leasurly, not too challenging. Kids could ski, very picturesque - trees, views, etc.

Good value for money.

The owner is very helpful, and no doubt we will come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Ksenia! Do come back soon!
Kids have great time in Les Houches. There are kindergartens to drop kids off for the day and enjoy skiing. Otherwise the local ESF ski school caters for all ages and levels, including nursery.

Excellent place

  • 5 out of 5
Highly recommend this chalet. The location is superb - the ski lift is only a few steps away plus we could leave the skis in the rental shop overnight, so did not need to carry them around at all! Plus it is equally close to the main shopping/eating street.

The chalet itself is very nice, clean and just as good as the pictures show.

I will not hesitate to stay there again.

Les Houches lies around 5 km down the valley from Chamonix-Mont-Blanc town centre and its ski domain extends from an altitude of 950 metres up to 1900 metres.

Les Houches is the location of regular international events and is home to the Kandahar World Downhill Ski Championships. This race has become one of the main sporting events in the Chamonix valley and is representative of the excellent skiing reputation that Chamonix possesses. Les Houches also serves as a training ground for the French National Ski Team. The area consists of 1 international black run, 12 red runs, 5 blue runs and 4 green runs, cross-country trails, and a snow park.

Lonely Planet describes the Chamonix valley as “ensnared by scenery so mind-blowingly spectacular it’s practically Himalayan - think deeply crevassed glaciers pointing towards a valley from the icy crown of mighty Mont Blanc. It was here that the first Winter Olympics happened in 1924.'

Scroll down for more information.

Other Activities: Plenty of choice of children and family friendly activities

Ski: Located between the altitude of 950 metres and up to 1900 metres, the skiing in Les Houches combines long descents through pretty tree-lined slopes, with amazing views of the Mont Blanc massif and the Chamonix valley.

Most of the skiing is through pine and larch forests which makes the skiing here more charming than the more exposed areas further up the valley, but also the trees offer shelter when the winds are high elsewhere, and definition when the snow is coming down or during white-out conditions.

Unlike in other parts of the Chamonix valley the ski-out is open throughout the season thanks to the great snow cannon coverage on the sheltered lower runs.

Les Houches is a great area for mixed ability groups, as the slopes at the top of the mountain range from green nursery slopes right through to the famous “Verte” black run used in the Kandahar World Cup skiing!
