Why Florence chose Haute-Savoie

I enjoy welcoming Guests from all around the world and make them appreciating beautiful Chamonix valley and its surroundings.

What makes this chalet unique

At Chalet Florence, you will appreciate a refine and quaint alpine atmosphere, a certain art of life, facing Mont-Blanc, with a discret but personalized welcome and free conciergerie.

Owner's Response: Dear Marcia, What a wonderful surprise! Your detailed Review is amazingly kind and thoughtful. I am so moved. I thank you very much. It has been such a pleasure to welcoming you and Antonio, last week, at Chalet Florence. You have been such wonderful Hosts, enjoying Chamonix and its surroundings so much. I highly recommend you both to any home owner who will be fortunate to greeting you. Remembering our discussions, I started to email you photos about what to visit during the spring - summer - autumn season. I am also looking for a friendly ski teacher speaking Portuguese or Italian for you, if you come back next winter. I would be so thrilled to have you coming back, what ever the season is. I miss you! I guess you are back to San Paolo. I wish you both a great year, filled with joy and serenity. Kindest regards to both of you. Florence

Sweet dream

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful Chalet New Year week. The owner is a very nice lady, always present, but very discreet. The Chalet was a dream, Christmas decorations, external and internal, and the environment studied in detail. A real home atmosphere, where nothing is missing. You stay so well that you feel like being at home. Congratulations Florence!

JEWEL IN THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 of 5

A thoroughly stunning exquisite chalet with amazing views of Mont Blanc and Le Brévent and a thoughtful caring owner..

The Chalet Florence is superbly clean with all the amenities required to have a truly easy 'home from home' experience with the kitchen exceptionally stocked for all levels of cooking requirements saving you time and money having to buy all the little extras needed that are usually in large sizes from the supermarket.

Florence is a wonderful host, always there to help whether it's a lift here and there or any extras that are required.

I have visited Chamonix many times however this time was extra special as it was Christmas and this was the most unique and classy chalet I have stayed in with quaint decorations all in line with the architectural style.

I would like to return in the summer months to experience the amazing weather and to sample the vegetable garden Florence works hard to maintain and allows guests take advantage of.

A true gem in the mountains.

Bonne Année xxx

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Let me just say that Heaven would never be Heaven without a trip to Chalet Florence in Chamonix. This place is like a First Kiss. In our many travels throughout Europe, I can truly say few places on Earth, like Chalet Florence offer so much love, beauty, peace and friendship. Our lovely host and now friend forever, Florence, has created a little Heaven on Earth. The connections we make in the course of our travels and life on this planet is perhaps what Heaven is to some. Chalet Florence is and was this Slice of Heaven for us. A stellar location, an endearing host, and an amazing home like you never left, awaits. Needless to say, Heaven does exist; Chalet Florence is a place to be, a place to refresh your senses and enjoy the complete experience of Heavenly Hospitality.

Owner's Response: Dear Rick and Nancy, dear Friends from Hawaï, Aloha ! I thank you deeply for your amazing Review regarding you stay at Chalet Florence, last August. I am really moved by your comments.It is so thoughtful of you. You have been such wonderful Guests I highly recommend to any home owner who will be fortunate to greeting you both one day. It has been soooooo pleasant to knowing you and seeing you enjoying the chalet, these stunning views of 360° around Mont-Blanc and its glaciers, when enjoying a BBQ and sipping French wines! I cannot wait to welcoming you again, one day. Maybe next winter for skiing? Chamonix offers such a large variety of beautiful sites to visit in winter and many winter sports options. Who knows, we'll go skiing together, one day? I wish you and your family a great fall in your corner of paradise: HAWAI. Looking forward to meeting you again in the future. Thank you to let friends and contacts of yours know about my two charming cottages, here, in Chamonix. It would be so kind of you and highly appreciated.

A Perfect Chalet Amid the Alps

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little chalet is clean and comfortable and bursting with mountain charm. It was the perfect accommodation for our week of hiking and enjoying the scenery of this gorgeous region. We enjoyed the short walk to the shops and restaurants but also enjoyed barbequing at the chalet and dining outside while admiring the full panorama of the Alps. Eating fresh lettuce and herbs from Florence's garden was an added bonus! Florence was a flawless host and a great resource for ensuring that we made the most of everything that Chamonix and the surrounding area had to offer. We took a couple of beautiful day trips to nearby Annecy and Courmayeur, Italy. We absolutely loved our time at the chalet and recommend it very highly!

Owner's Response: Dear Karen and David, I had been such a pleasure to welcoming you at 'Chalet Florence'. You have been wonderful Hosts. I thank you very much for your Review. It is very kind of you and much appreciated. We are experiencing a heat wave through out France since two weeks or so. Poor glaciers: they will melt fast after such an ordeal.... I would be so glad to welcoming you in the future. How knows, maybe for skiing next winter. Chamonix offers a large variety of ski slopes with amazing panorama. Thank you to let your friends and colleagues know about my two chalets to rent in Chamonix. It will be most appreciated and so kind of you. I wish you a great summer. Your pets must have been so happy seeing you back home... Kind regards to you both, Florence

Simply Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough nice things about our stay in Florence’s chalet. From the time we arrived until we left, Florence made sure that everything was taken care of. The chalet was beautifully furnished and had views of Mont Blanc that are out of this world. We had considered several other places before choosing this one and are so glad we did. In the evenings, its very quiet and away from the noise of downtown Chamonix. However, the shops/restaurants in Chamonix are just a short walk away, which we walked to nearly everyday. The hiking nearby was challenging and offered great views of alps.

Look no further if you want a quaint, quiet, little chalet with wonderful views and an amazing hostess. Florence truly took care of everything. We were even fortunate enough to share dinner with her one evening, which was very enjoyable to hear more about the history of Chamonix and her chalets.

I hope that we’ll be able to visit Chamonix again and if we do, we’ll definitely be staying in this chalet again!

Owner's Response: Dear Erin and Philip, It has been such a pleasure to have known you both and having you at 'Chalet Florence' for a week, enjoying Chamonix and its beautiful hiking and alpine panoramas ! How kind is your 'Review'. I am really moved and thank you very much for your appreciation. You have been wonderful Guests I highly recommend to any home owner who will have the pleasure to greeting you one day. I thank you very much also for your kind diner invitation at Restaurant L'Impossible. We had then the opportunity to talk about Chamonix, its history, and so on. A very special time with a very special young couple fro North Carolina, in the US. As discussed, if Philip is interested to climb Mont-Blanc, I will email you all the information. You will need then a two or three weeks here to just yourselves with altitude before the ascent of Mont-Blanc. In winter, Chamonix offers a wide variety of ski slopes with stunning views, including the very famous 'Vallée Blanche' (off-pistes). At the chalet, during winter nights, you will see the deers coming for 'diner' right in front of the windows. it is magical to watch these wild big animals from so close. I wish you and your families a lovely summer. Looking forward to -maybe- greeting you, your family or friends at one of the two charming chalets. It will be so enjoyable to welcome you again one day. Your friend from Chamonix, Florence
