Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cosy apartment for over two weeks for a hiking trip in Chamonix. The apartment was perfect for one person, spacious and contained everything l needed for a self catering holiday. The location was perfect, few minutes from both the bus station and the train stop. Close to shopping street and supermarket. Good WiFi. Communication with the owner and the care taker was good too. Highly recommended!

Nice little studio flat, well kitted out, good location

  • 5 of 5

My 3rd time of visiting this apartment and still a great place to stay for short or long visits, ideal for 1 or 2 people. Bed very comfortable, good central location in Chamonix Sud, Clean and well maintained. Only issues were the hot water was coming through brown for a couple of days, TV didn't work, toilet flush not working properly, Wifi went down for 7 days but the owners lent me a dongle so that wasn't an issue.

Small but perfectly formed!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is small but had everything I needed and was in a fantastic location to act as a base for skiing. It was really straightforward to get into and was clean and tidy. The only thing it is lacking is a ski locker.

Nice apartment with a good view

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyable stay in Balme apartment. Ideal for anyone travelling on their own. Very close to Aguille Du Midi, bus station and the town centre. Fantastic views of Mont Blanc and other mountains on a clear day. The owner was very helpful and I would highly recommend visiting Chamonix.

small and compact but adequate for our needs

  • 3 of 5

Small apartment (look bigger in picture) with pull down sofa bed and small kitchen. No frills but adequate for a week with a mix of eating out and the odd meal in. Nice outlook with mountain views and central location, although a little noisey at times with the odd reveller and refuse collectors arriving very very early. Small shower but modern and lots of hot water. Apprartment was in need of a good clean, lots of dust!

Key pad entrance on door was a pain as it seldom worked first time and a wait of 20 seconds or so was required until it reset itself, but never got locked out!

Advertised as having dishwasher but there was not one! Small two ring cooker, microwave and small electric oven. Not many cups. plates or glasses, just enough for two.

NIce small apartment. Perfect location. Not overly clean.

  • 3 of 5

NIce small apartment. Perfect location close to Midi cablecar. Was not cleaned very well (Floor not cleaned, e.g. food crumbs and coffee stains. Some dirty dishes). Responsive caretaker. Not very insulated against outside noise, but not a big deal.

Chamonix nestles beneath the majestic Mont Blanc and is surrounded by spectacular scenery. From Chamonix, you have the opportunity to ski in France at the five resorts in the Chamonix Valley and in Italy at Courmayeur.

High altitude Chamonix has a reputation for its challenging skiing. As the off-piste capital of Europe, Chamonix will test the skills of experts to the limit! The 20,000m Vallee Blanche descent will thrill intermediates, while beginners will progress on the nursery slopes. The varied terrain will set snowboarder's adrenalin pumping!

Chamonix is noted for its buzzing, cosmopolitan night-life in the picturesque village. Will you strike lucky in the casino? Over a hundred restaurants serve delicious French and Italian cuisine.

Chamonix is a shopper's delight with an array of interesting shops and a market. A trip to Megeve or Geneva is sure to be fascinating. Why not take in the panoramic view from an alpine flight? You can also cheer on the teams at an ice-hockey match. Swimming, a gym, tennis, squash and ice-skating will keep you fit and afterwards you can enjoy a relaxing sauna and massage!

With first class skiing, stunning views and a bustling atmosphere, Chamonix deserves its reputation as a skier's Mecca.
