The scenery is absolutely stunning during the summer months, with lush green meadows speckled with colourful, blossoming flowers and basking in the rich sunlight. Golfers have a great choice of courses in the area, with a magnificent 18 hole course right in the village. Other courses will require a short drive from your Les Bois / Les Praz accommodation.

              Stunning Chalet. Spacious and well equipped

              5 of 5
              We loved this chalet and spent two weeks in it with all our extended family. The open plan top floor is a beautiful place to hang out and made evenings together a brilliant experience. All the furnishings and bathrooms are top quality and the location was perfect for us, as we could get in to the town or on tot the mountains quickly and easily. We wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend.

              To make it shorter, we will come back

              We spent a wonderful week in Lesley apartment during winter season with friends : 4 adults plus 3 youths between 9 and 13. Room are tiny but confortable and the boys loved lazing around in the sofa or in their double deck beds. 2 vast bathroom, well equipped with ample hot water capacities. Large space for kitchen and living room brings friendliness and good atmosphere. Kitchen is very well equipped (even for French cookers :-)), we appreciated that all furnitures were of utmost quality. We were lucky to have a 1m snow depth in the garden that made it a creative playground for snowballs and treasure huntings. Everything was well organized and prepared with guidelines to rule the house. Lesley for any matter remains responsive to any request. To make it shorter, we will come back, and not only because Chamonix ski resort is the best.

              A beautiful Chalet for a beautiful week away!

              5 of 5
              I stayed here with my family for a week over Christmas and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Chalet was spotless and very tasteful. We made great use of the hot tub outside and with only a short bus ride from Chamonix centre, it was the perfect choice. I highly recommend this chalet!
