Places to holiday in Chamonix

Argentiere’s glacial scenery sits under the peak of Mont Blanc. A ski holiday to Argentiere is best for experienced skiers, as the rugged off-piste presents a challenge for good skiers, and the pistes here are fearsome! However, the après-ski is great, meaning that an apartment here is more than purely a chalet to hang your skis!

Near to Argentiere is the family resort of Les Houches. There are slopes for the more novice of the family members, but the downhill course is considered second only to Kitzbuhel for technical difficulty.

The cleaners were very friendly and let us leave our bags in the apartment for a chance to have a look around the town and get a bite to eat. Overall the apartment was very nice and well furnished with everything you would need for your stay including a washing machine. The apartment is in a very nice location. close to restaurants and only a 4minute walk from the bus station which has frequent busses to the many ski resorts. The only slight downfalls for the apartment stopping it from achieving a 5* rating are: Ants in the big downstairs bathroom. A few insects and bugs such as spiders, as well as some human hairs, in the bed in the downstairs bedroom on the right and finally very unstable and uncomfortable water temperatures in the showers. All in all a very welcoming and nice apartment with some very minor issues. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Chris the owner always replied immediately, and the on-site welcome was friendly and flexible. The skis were delivered at the correct time with extras available in the van etc so slight adjustments could be made. The chalet itself is gorgeous! Uncluttered and modern and clean. High quality furnishings. The bed linens and towels were good quality, something we are fussy about! The kitchen had everything we needed although we did eat out in town sometimes. A trip to Annecy is a lovely rest for the legs! There was less snow this year but still plenty up in les Houches and la Flegere and Brevant! Overall our best ski holiday in chamonix! Thank you Chris and Natasha and the team! We miss the view already!
