The chalet had everything we needed and more for a party of 11 people including adults and teenagers. It was very well equipped and clean. The views are amazing! Jude, who greeted us, was extremely friendly and helpful and was always available during the week for advice. The area has much to offer but the best things for us were the cable car to the Aiguille du Midi, the little red train, the open air pool at Chamonix is a must, lac du Passy (11 miles west), Chamonix itself is beautiful and a short bus ride away. We only had a week and there was much more to explore. There was a little farmer's market on Wednesday afternoon/evening a little way down the hill from the chalet which was charming. There is a Super U supermarket very nearby at the bottom of the hill. This is one of the best regions we have been to in France and certainly one of the best, if not the best accommodation we have stayed in. I would highly recommend it. Thank you Jude and Mike for your great communication and providing us with a lovely holiday experience.

                                                                                              We are just back from a one week stay with family, our party was nine in total. I think this is one of the best views in the valley, taking in Mont Blanc, Aiguille du Midi and looking down the valley. The sun rises onto the front of the chalet and moves round the balcony meaning in summer you can sit in the sun until 6pm or later. The view of Mont Blanc on our last night at last light on a clear night was very special. You get the view by being up the mountain and its does mean a drive up from Les Houches or a rather challenging but more direct walk up, the younger members of our group were keener on the walk than I was. As two families of nine in total, the layout of the Chalet worked very well for us with bedrooms on three floors and in the separate chalet, the separation was good but not too much. It was also good to have the tv / library room downstairs although we did not use it much it would be very good if children and adults wanted to do different things. Also a thank you to Charlotte for being so helpful when we were late arriving by providing some food after the shops were shut. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Chalet, I would describe it as rustic and quaint rather than modern and high spec but that does not mean it does not have everything you need its just to describe the character which is all part of its charm. In winter it must be so easy to ski out of the Chalet onto and down the Kandahar run you are literally right next to it. Book it - you wont regret it.

Corin and his wife were very responsive in resolving a small issue with the dishwasher immediately. My only criticism would be that a handrail of some kind (i.e. rope) would make the very steep stairs a little safer. My 71 year old mother and slightly disabled brother (metal plates in one hip) found the stairs quite difficult. A fondue set would have been good too - an essential piece of kitchen equipment for the region!
