Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Chamonix - Lutetia

A second floor apartment with great views of Mont Blanc and 5 balconies

This is a wonderful 100m² apartment. It comes with three bedrooms and is located on the Rue Paccard in the very centre of Chamonix. It can sleep up to eight people in comfort.

It is on the 2nd floor of the old Hotel Lutetia (lift access) and has retained its beautiful arched doors and the wood panelling. It is deliberately kept in its original style to blend in with this old building.

It has one Double, one twin bedroom and one bedroom with two bunk bed units. It has a large and very comfortable antique lounge, complete with an open fireplace, family crest and a stained glass window. There is a separate kitchen, toilet and bathroom. There are 5 balconies facing to three sides of this apartment, south looking directly at Mt Blanc, east looking onto the town and the Aiguilles Rouges and west looking onto Brevant.

This is a very comfortable family apartment where you will feel instantly at home and relaxed. There are lots of books and games for kids. Wifi has been newly installed. It has unlimited hot water, central heating and secure private garage parking (€40.00/week extra).

This is in the very centre of Chamonix, on the main street in the pedestrian zone, wonderfully located for all the shops, bars and restaurants. The bus stop for free transfers to all the ski areas is just two minutes walk away.

The rental price includes linen, towels, final cleaning and holiday taxes.

We like to personally check-in our customers and aim to greet you when you arrive in Chamonix. If this is not possible we will give you a detailed explanation in order for you to self check-in. We will always be contactable in the event a problem may arise and will try to meet you before you leave Chamonix. If a late check-in (after 9pm) is unavoidable then a €30.00 late check-in fee may be charged.

We do take a €200.00 deposit on booking which also acts as your damage waiver which will be returned to you shortly after you leave.

Clean Central Comfortable Conveneient

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this lovelyapartment three times in the last two years: once in the winter and twice in the spring. the flat has a superb central location, barely five minutes from the town squares and two from the bus stops for transportation to the slopes. The views of Mont Blanc and le Brevant from the balconies are stunning. I found the apartment very snug in the winter - wet skiing gear dried out perfectly overnight. The apartment is very spacious and is full of character with a very large and convivial sitting and dining area. There is a television for watching DVDs. The kitchen is relatively small and old fashioned but it is perfectly well equipped for the making of meals. The large modern bathroom with its french doors opens on to a view of the mountain.

I am hoping to book the apartment again this winter.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother and two children stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in August. It was spacious and clean and in a wonderful location. We had a car, however we never used it as we could walk to everything or talk a quick bus ride. You are very centrally located to shops, restaurants, grocery stores and the ski lifts. If I go back to Chamonix, I would stay at this apartment again if available.

Great flat.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed there twice (January 2015 and July 2016). The flat is great and is centrally located with panoramic views. If available, hope to re-visit again in winter.

Fantastic location. Spacious apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment could not be better. It is central and easy to find. The lounge /dining area is spacious and has charming character. We had numerous happy meals there and the ability to self cater made for a much cheaper stay. The wifi is excellent. The views of the mountains are lovely. The kitchen is not big but the washing machine, cooker and large fridge/freezer all worked fine. I would definitely want to stay there again. It is great for groups and families as it is so spacious.

Great location, apartment is just OK

  • 3 of 5

I've been to Chamonix many times, and it is one of the best mountain locations in the world. Most of the time I have stayed in a hotel. In typical European fashion, they are generally small, but serviceable. I have used VRBO (or equivalent) many times, so I was comfortable with the process.

This particular unit is well situated in town. A quick walk to everything. Others pluses include: it is fairly large; has a nice area for dining; and the Internet actually works! Now the not so good news: the apartment needs a remodel - badly. It would be difficult to cook anything in the kitchen given the equipment. The walls need paint; the floors need to be redone; the bathroom shower is taped together. The furniture is IKEA cheap, and not in the best of shape. And be prepared for late night noise, as the Bar is located directly below - and they won't be closing until after Midnight.

So absolutely, positively visit Chamonix. It is a magical distinction both summer and winter. But I would not recommend this apartment, until the owner actually reinvests in making the place cleaner, more modern, and updates the furniture.

Nice apartment but let down by the kitchen

  • 2 of 5

The property has a great location and has good access to all the facilities, secure parking is good and where the property has been updated it is in good condition.

However, the kitchen is unacceptable. It would appear to have never been updated since it was first put in, the sink was regularly blocked and backed up with foul smelling water, this was clearly a regular occurrence as a plunger was on hand in the cupboard underneath. When we brought this to attention of the property manager he did try and rectify the issue, alas this consisted of putting a chemical into the system which failed to unblock the sink but did manage to make the whole apartment smell awful of a sulphurous odour. Furthermore the oven, microwave and fridge / freezer were well past their sell buy date! As to the cooking / frying pans and utensils most were unusable and we had to ask that we were provided with basic oven dishes in order to cook. If we were a couple which were planning on eating out every night this would be less of a problem but as we are a family with children we purposefully chose an apartment whereby we could cook evening meals rather than endure the added expense of dining out.

In all the property is OK - in our opinion not value for money as in comparison our friends rented a more traditional property out of the centre and seemed to get an awful lot more (and more modern) property and facilities for their money.

Additional points, the main lounge area (as pictured) only has one small radiator, we found this simply was not sufficient to heat a room of this size, as a result our children complained that they were cold.

The ensuite in bedroom had a terrible odour of backed up drains (probably connected to the kitchen sink issue!) and worse the door lock managed to lock our children in the bathroom on two occasions? - slightly concerning.

Finally we did see a TV listed on the facilities on the web page, this consisted of an 18 inch screen TV which was not connected to any aerial, consequently no channels are available, this was a problem to our 10 and 7 year olds!

This is a nice apartment, in a great location if you are a single man or couple which have no interest in spending any time actually in the property.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, Sorry you had some issues with our apartment. For sure the Kitchen is old style but as many people comment on the practicality of the it and said it was great it had so much storage space as didn't like it. Its a marmite thing I think. The foul smelling was a problem with the building as a whole and we complained to the management of the building but it took a while for them to fix it, but it was fixed shortly after you had checked out. There is a new Fridge freezer and we are hoping to change the oven shortly. In the lounge there are 3 radiators, one at each side of the fire (which can be used as well)as well as one by the wall. Normally people complain that the room is too hot, but I will talk to the management about why the room would be cold. The door lock in the bathroom is now sorted and the TV has been upgraded, but I'm really sorry you had a not very good experience.
