Apartment Campanule sleeps four people with one twin bedroom and one bunk cabine room. The sofa in living room area can also be converted to twin beds for occasional use.
There is a newly refurbished bathroom with shower attachment and heated towel rail and a separate W.C. The apartment also has a hairdryer and iron with ironing board at your disposal as well as a boot dryer.
In the living room area you will find a newly installed kitchenette with an oven, four-ring ceramic hob, under-the-counter fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and electric kettle and coffee machine. There are cookware and place settings for up to six people.
The windows offer simply stunning views of the Chamonix valley and to the mountains beyond and the small balcony is a lovely spot to sip a glass of wine at the end of the day enjoying the afternoon and evening sunshine.
Campanule 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.
Although the apartment has no allocated ski locker, guests often store equipment on the balcony as it is inaccessible other than through the apartment. The total surface area of Campanule, excluding the balcony, is 38m².
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 is home to seven rental apartments of which Campanule 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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
"We were happy with everything and intend returning next year.
Lovely location, property provided everything we needed and staff were very helpful from point of booking through to departure."
Perfect place to enjoy a weekend with family and friends. Everything was just perfect .
The view from Campanule was pretty amazing! From the living area and kitchen was a peaceful, unobstructed view of Brevent. The apartment itself was well maintained, clean and well equipped. The location was also great, within a few minutes (drive) to Chamonix and right at the start of the Glacier Bossons hiking trail it was an ideal location for hiking and sight seeing.
Sarah was very accommodating and very helpful. The owner was also very helpful and responsive to inquiries before our arrival. We truly enjoyed our time in Campanule and would definitely recommend staying in Chalet Beaumont.
The service is exquisite. Friendly, fast and very professional, there is nothing to improve really. I booked only three days in advance and it did not seem to be a problem, so I was very satisified.
The accomodation is very good. I liked the fact, that the chalet Beaumont is located near a hiking spot, where you can walk up to the glacier de Bossoms.
The apartments are cozy and well equipped and the view through the valley is very nice as it is situated slightly above charmonix, which makes it a perfect resting spot after a long day of hiking.
I recommend Chalet Beaumont to anyone planning to visit Charmonix.
The description - how to get there - was very good. The apartment was clean and well maintained.
It was 2 persons flat and therefore little. We recommend to rent it if you are (very) young and perhaps not to big:). The mattress was almost thin, too.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet appartement qui est agréable et calme de plus ce qui était très agréable à l'arrivée c'est que tout était bien propre et prêt à nous accueillir !!!
We hebben een heerlijke tijd beleefd in deze prachtige omgeving. Het appartement ligt mooi centraal en vlakbij de gletsjer. De wandeling er naartoe is vanuit het chalet goed te doen. Helaas had ons appartement een erg klein balkon waarop je nauwelijks met twee keukenstoeltjes kon zitten. Andere appartementen in hetzelfde chalet hebben een groter balkon, bij de reservering dus even op letten. Voor het overige een aanrader! Dat de beheerdster engelssprekend is, is voor degene die de Franse taal niet beheersen een pre.
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.
