Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Les Bossons - Apartment Arnica

Stunning mountainside location, minutes from Chamonix-centre

Apartment Arnica sleeps four people: The main bedroom comprises twin beds that can be zipped-up to make a proper large double and bunk beds. There is also a sofa in the living room that can be converted into twin sofa beds for occasional use.

The shower room is bright and fresh and includes a heated towel rail. A hairdryer and iron with ironing board are included in all our apartments. The living area has a kitchenette which includes a fridge, oven, four-ring ceramic hob, toaster and electric kettle. There is cookware and place settings provided. Arnica has a television with built-in DVD player which does not show televised channels but we do offer a selection of DVDs as well as books and board games.

Two large picture windows offer stunning views of the Chamonix valley and its southerm mountain range, as well as of our little woodland where you might catch sight of deer in the early hours.

Being on the ground floor, staying in Arnica gives easy access to the communal terrace and meadow where in winter children and grown-ups alike can be found sledging. And as soon as the snow has melted the barbecue and outdoor picnic tables are available to all our guests.

The apartment benefits from a boot dryer and outdoor ski locker and the total surface area is 32m².

Travelling with children:

For our guests travelling with little ones please note that the Chalet Beaumont includes a cot, highgchair and box of toys free for the duration of your stay and these can be requested during the booking process.

Chalet Beaumont

Chalet Beaumont is home to seven rental apartments of which Arnica is one. The Chalet is situated in the quiet hamlet of Le Mont, just above Les Bossons, between the village of Les Houches and Chamonix town centre, which are both five minutes drive away. The Chalet's views of the mountains and valley are stunning and take your breath away every time you see them...

With fully independent access for each apartment and without views of the other apartments from inside you will be well placed to enjoy the calm of the mountains, away from the crowds.

Ski lifts:

The distance by car from Chamonix's ski lifts are as follows:

Brévent, in Chamonix town: five minutes

Les Houches: 10 minutes

Flégère: 15 minutes

Grand Montets, in Argentière : 20 minutes

Le Tour: 25 minutes

Both Courmayeur in Italy and St Gervais, linking to Mégève, are also 25 minutes drive from us.

Driving in Chamonix:

We usually recommend having a car when staying at Chalet Beaumont as this really helps you to make the most of your time in the valley as Chamonix is more spread out than most mountain resorts. With lots of free parking at the chalet, a straightforward drive into the valley from the motorway and car parks at all the ski lifts it is very easy to get about by car in Chamonix.

Winter Tyres:

Please note that the local authorities are very good at gritting our road and clearing it quickly when snow fall is heavy. From December to March you must have winter tyres on your car. This is standard when renting a car from the Swiss side of Geneva airport and expected when driving in the mountains.

On foot and by bus:

Walking down from the chalet there are three local restaurants: Le Tremplin, La Cremerie du Glacier and l'Hôtel Aiguille du Midi; all are a 5-15 mins walk from Chalet Beaumont. There is also a bus stop 10 minutes away, just opposite La Cremerie du Glacier. The bus will take you into Chamonix town and to the Flégère ski lift. The train station of Les Bossons is a 15 minute walk down the hill and in the warmer months it is a lovely 30-45 minute stroll into town. As the bus service stops at about 7.30pm you would need to book a taxi back after this time. Please bear in mind that it is a relatively steep walk back up to the chalet so add 10 minutes for walking back.

About Laura Hely Hutchinson

We are Laura and Greg Hely Hutchinson and Chalet Beaumont has been our holiday home in the Alps since the summer of 2010. We live in the UK most of the year and simply love coming to Chamonix, and are so excited to share our wonderful holiday apartments with you! We come at all times of the year with our little boy, family and friends and simply cannot get enough of all the valley has to offer; sports, culture, shopping and eating.

Laura Hely Hutchinson purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Laura Hely Hutchinson chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc area

Our decision to buy Chalet Beaumont came from our love of France, where we had both spent a part of our childhoods, a shared passion for the great outdoors and a dream to provide holiday accommodation which to each of our guests would feel like their own home-from-home in Chamonix - where they would want to come back to time and again.

We and our guests get to enjoy hiking, skiing, mountain biking, paragliding, snowboarding, rock climbing and so much more. The valley is often referred to as a Mecca for outdoor sports so what better place to come back to time and again?

Plus, when the weather sets in we appreciate the time to catch-up on some reading, play a game of Scrabble or watch a movie. We never get bored here!

What makes this apartment unique

Just a few minutes drive from Chamonix town and the ski lifts of Les Houches and Brévent, Chalet Beaumont offers the perfect combination of Alpine peace, tranquility and beauty with the essential access to shops, restaurants and an array of activities.

The view of the mountains and valley below is mesmerising - even friends who live in Chamonix find it breathtaking! Chalet Beaumont offers the natural quiet and calm that comes from being in the mountains; revitalising the senses and filling you with the wonder of nature.

Yet just a few minutes from the valley's main road and town centre, the location provides quick access and easy access to shops and restaurants and more importantly the ski lifts and a vast array of hiking and biking trails and climbing spots - many on our very doorstep.

Chalet Beaumont offers such a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing place to return to after a day exploring Chamonix!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely lovely stay at Chalet Beaumont last week. Sarah was very welcoming and we appreciated the shop done for us on arrival. The accommodation was great with the interconnecting door and we were very comfortable. Thank you so much.

My girlfriend and I stayed at chalet Arnica, perfect for us. Clean, spacious, and affordable with hiking trails near the chalet. Beautiful view of Le Bosson Glacier and the Aiguidille du midi. The chalet manager (Sarah) was very friendly and accommodating, we like the chalet so much that we are going back for few more night.

Local Hiking

Going up from the chalet, you can enjoy a 45 minute hike up to a viewing platform overlooking the glacier and if you peer hard, you may see ice climbers risking life and limb amongst the awesome crevasses and pyramids of ice. There is also a chair-lift which opens in the summer season taking visitors from the valley floor directly to the viewing platform and the Buvette du Glacier des Bossons, a pleasant café where you can get a drink and a snack whilst enjoying the stunning views.

Continuing on, now a more serious route, you will eventually come to the junction of the two glaciers, Bossons and Taconnaz, where you can marvel at the spectacular views of Mont Blanc's ice falls. Some of the most famous hikes in the valley begin on our doorstep and indeed the first ascent of Mont Blanc, by Jacques Balmat and Doctor Paccard, started from our hamlet in 1786.

This apartment is on the ground floor of our chalet but is accessed from the road above so please note that there are several flights of steps to be walked down to get to the apartment. In the summer it is possible to park on the other side of the meadow and walk across but this is still not ideal for anyone with mobility issues. We offer true mountainside accommodation!
