Excellent location and a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Even though the review is coming in late after our summer trip to France in June, our stay is as fresh in our mind as it was last week. We enjoyed the scenic beauty of Chamonix right from outside our cottage and Florence was nothing but an exceptional host. She made our stay very comfortable and recommended things to do and places to visit. We even enjoyed the fresh lettuce and herbs from her cottage while we were there!

We are just waiting to return back to Chamonix and will be definitely staying at Florence's!

Owner's Response: Dear Ambrish and Meghana, Hope all is great for you, in San Francisco! Your future baby should arrive very soon. I wish three of you a lot of happiness. Thank you so much for your very kind "Appreciation" posted on this site. I am really moved and grateful. You both have been such wonderful hosts. I enjoyed every moment spent with you in Chamonix. I miss you and often think of you, back in beautiful California. Looking forward to greeting you again, one day, you and your baby, maybe in the main chalet, next door. In waiting, I wish you all the best. Your friend from Chamonix, Florence

Our Alps vacation was truly a dream vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We found Chalet Florence on this site...Florence was a dream to deal with from the first email I sent. She sent us all kinds of information, provided many suggestions on things to do, she reached out to her contacts to get us set up with heli-skiing, she provided weather updates leading up to our departure, fabulous directions and was waiting for us when we finally arrived - with a big French welcome hug! (we'd become very close email friends during the few weeks leading up and it was lovely to finally meet in real life!). The Chalet was our home away from home for the entire week. Florence showed us all the details of the Chalet and we had a welcome pkg waiting for us - homemade jam, yummy French wine and a few others things. The bed was SO comfy, if it weren't for the Alps calling our names it would have been so easy to stay in the Chalet and be cozy all week. We had a nice big tub to come home to soak in after our days on the mountain. Yummy nespresso each morning and even friendly neighbours to help push our car out of the snow the morning we got stuck :) The Chalet is perfectly located a nice, easy 5 minute walk to town. We arrived late in the evening and we weren't sure we'd make it to the grocery store in time to buy supplies for breakfast - when we woke up that morning, Florence left us eggs, butter and bread from her own personal kitchen. Chamonix is beautiful and everything is so close to walk to from the Chalet. We had a rental car and discovered that Italy was a short 20mins drive thru the tunnel and so that made our adenturing even more amazing. We skiied a different mountain every day and mother nature even decided to dump huge amounts of snow on us - it snowed for 36 hours straight! Thanks to Florence no doubt, I had asked her to speak to the snow gods for us and ensure lots of powder for our vacation!! On the last day of our vacation we finally had crystal clear blue skies and we finally made it up in the helicopter - AMAZING!!! And for the grand finale of the trip, we were finally visited by Florence's 'pet' deer! She had spoken about the deer and I was very excited to see...and she finally came on our last night to bid us farewell. We watched her eat right in front of the chalet window and Florence came out and the two of them put on a little show for us - Florence was speaking to her and called her over for more food and the deer actually followed her, I have no idea what Florence said to her, as it was all in French!!

Charming & cozy chalet - felt like home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the second time this March. We visited Chamonix for two week to ski tour. The chalet felt just like home with every convenience and a large, most comfortable bed. Florence was like an old friend!

The chalet is located on Chemin de la Croix des Pecles, which was easy enough for the shuttle drivers to find and also easy to find your way back to in the dark after dinner. There is a large statute of Jesus on the Cross at the right-hand turn.

The chalet is just a few minutes walking pace from Chamonix-Sud, the southern part of the town. We caught the bus for skiing at this stop. The center of town and the main drag is also only minutes away, easily walked in comfortable shoes (or ski boots!)

Florence is the kindest, caring host who makes us feel wanted and at home. I feel as though I've know her for years. She let us store our ski equipment in the garage, and also wash our clothes in her laundry facility - which we couldn't have done without!

The chalet itself is just the right size for 2 people, with a closet for hanging clothes and plenty of drawers. There is a kitchen with a small stovetop, microwave, sink, refrigerator and dishwasher. And of course a Nespresso for making coffee! The woodwork in the chalet is very beautiful, and Florence has it decorated so nicely.

The view from the chalet looks right out onto Mont Blanc - you couldn't ask for better. And since the chalet is away from streetlights and busy roads it is very quiet and dark at night; great for a good night's sleep.

I have recommended this cozy chalet to my friends and family. My in-laws especially, who have never been to Chamonix. I think they would love it here and also get along fantastically with Florence.

If you are considering renting the chalet for your stay, I highly encourage you to do so! You will not regret it and will have many fond memories to bring home.

La parenthèse féérique

  • 5 of 5

Ce petit chalet est un bijou d'orfèvrerie, tout y est d'un gout exquis : la vaisselle, le linge de maison, la décoration... La propreté est irréprochable. Niché bien à l'abri, face au Mont Blanc, c'est un havre de paix aux parfums épicés. C'est notre deuxième séjour et nous planifions déjà notre prochain... Comment ne pas apprécier l'accueil sans égal de Florence ? Toujours à l'écoute, elle vous accompagne avec son sourire, ses petites attentions... et toujours avec tact et discrétion. Vos compagnons à quatre pattes sont les bienvenus, ils seront accueillis par Ficelle et la jolie Pupuce... En cinq minutes à pieds, vous êtes en ville où les commerces rivalisent d'originalité... Nous sommes impatients de revenir au printemps pour y découvrir les bonnes choses du potager, entretenu avec amour... Il y a dans ce lieu quelque chose de magique... Nul part ailleurs vous ne pourrez côtoyer chaque soir une biche et son faon qui viennent se restaurer à la porte du chalet... Le paradis ? Il est ici, à Chamonix.

Owner's Response: Chère Nadia, Quelle incroyable "Appréciation" sur Abritel ! C'est vraiment très très gentil à vous. J'en suis très touchée. Ce fut une grand joie de vous revoir pour la 2e année consécutive, vous, votre mari et votre gentil chien Guapo, un Terre-Neuve très bien élevé et adorable. Guapo a séduit tout le voisinage, comme l'année dernière ! Je vous recommande tous les trois à tout Propriétaire qui aura le plaisir de vous accueillir un jour. Ficelle, mon petit chien, cherchait son "grand copain" Guapo dans le jardin, après votre départ. C'était trop mignon. Je serais ravie de vous revoir et de vous accueillir au Mazot Florence, quand l'occasion se présentera pour vous. Bien sur, l'été, Michel est très très occupé à pêcher dans les magnifiques eaux Corses ... ce que l'on comprend aisément. La vie est dure,en Corse ...... Ici, le potager BIO commence à reverdir. Bien qu'à mille mètres d'altitude, cela démarre doucement. La ciboulette et la rhubarbe poussent déjà. La biche ne vient plus "diner" devant les fenêtres avec son bambi. La nature a repris ses droits : la biche trouve tout ce qui lui faut dans la nature maintenant. C'est c'est très bien ainsi. Voilà, chère Nadia, un petit séjour de marche et de repos au printemps, est-ce une bonne idée ? Au plaisir de vous revoir tous les trois. Amicalement, Florence & Co

Fantastic little place with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

We booked Mazot Florence at the last minute for UK half term week. It's in a great location, very quiet yet close to Central Chamonix. The mazot is full of character with lots of carved wood. It is basically a 1 room studio but is the perfect size for 2 people. There are plenty of features including a nespresso machine. It is probably 30% more expensive than an apartment, but worth it due to the character and quiet location. Many thanks to Florence for welcoming us warmly with wine and local jam!

Owner's Response: Hi Pete, It has been great welcoming you and your wife, last month, at Mazot Florence. You were such fine Guests. I highly recommend both of you to any home owners who will be greeting you in the future. I thank you for the Review you published on this site. If you had the opportunity to let your friends and contacts know about my two charming accommodations, it would be so kind of you and appreciated. Now you know the places and what kind of welcome they will get. In summer, Chamonix offers a large variety of activities and many outstanding sites to visit? Looking forward to greeting you again, one day. In waiting, I wish you both all the best. Kind regards, Florence This is the link for the main chalet, next door: C h a l e t F lo r e n c e ***** 5 stars Award www.homeaway.co.uk/p1281247a?flspusage=fl www.homeaway.co.uk/p1281247a?flspusage=fl#reviews

Un séjour de rêve à Chamonix dans le chalet Mazot

  • 5 of 5

Nous ne pouvons que recommander très chaleureusement Florence et le chalet qu'elle propose à ses hôtes, nous y avons passé l'un des séjours les plus enchanteurs qu'il nous ait été donné de vivre !

Tout concourt à rendre le lieu magique, bien au-delà de ce que montrent déjà les photos ! Le chalet est particulièrement beau et raffiné, tout en étant incroyablement bien agencé et équipé, un véritable chalet 5 Etoiles ! Chaud et douillet, il crée un contraste incroyable avec le paysage alentour, aussi splendide que glacé. Dans un cocon de neige, le chalet ressemble à une carte postale et devient, le soir, lorsque toutes les petites lumières qui le décorent scintillent, un lieu hors du temps. Pour les plus chanceux, tels que nous, les biches et leurs petits faons viennent rendre une petite visite de courtoisie chaque soir ou presque, jetant parfois un œil à travers la fenêtre. Nous l'avons vécu, c'est vraiment impressionnant. Le chalet est par ailleurs très bien situé, nous nous sommes toujours promenés dans Chamonix à pieds depuis celui-ci : il est pour ainsi dire en plein centre-ville (tout en étant "caché", à l'abri des curieux et du tumulte du soir en ville).

Par ailleurs, Florence est une personne particulièrement accueillante et sympathique, aux petits soins avec ses hôtes, tout en étant d'une parfaite discrétion. Elle s'improvise avec talent guide touristique et a su nous recommander des visites et activités adaptées, en fonction du climat quotidien, ce qui nous a été très utile pour profiter du séjour pleinement.

Ce séjour est idéal pour les couples en quête de romantisme qui recherchent un petit havre de paix dans un décor de rêve, notre plus belle Saint Valentin !

Merci Florence !

Vous êtes des Hôtes charmants, votre minette est un délice, et je vous recommande chaleureusement à tout propriétaire qui vous accueillera dans le futur. Je suis heureuse que vous ayez passé une si belle "Saint-Valentin" à Chamonix et au "Mazot Florence". Je vous souhaite beaucoup de bonheur !!! Ce serait vraiment adorable de votre part de faire connaitre mes deux jolis petits chalets autour de vous,( collègues, amis, famille) maintenant que vous les connaissez. * L'été, Chamonix offre une grande variété d'activités sportives te récréatives, de nombreux sites de toute beauté à visiter. * L'automne, il y a cette lumière spéciale avec le ciel bleu marine, la végétation au x couleurs automnales et les sommets saupoudrés des premières neiges. Voilà, chers Amis, je vous souhaite un agréable printemps et été. Encore merci pour votre amitié et votre gentillesse. Amicalement, Florence, Ficelle, Mina et Pupuce
