Beautiful apartment with helpful landlord

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of four staying in this lovely apartment, which is equipped with everything you might need. There is plenty of space to cook, eat and relax in and lots of room for coats and kit. We found the apartment very fresh and clean. The views of the mountains and the village of Les Bossons are amazing and very picturesque. Robin (the landlord) was very helpful and informative before the trip and we received a warm welcome from Joey (the manager) when we arrived. The bus stop and the railway station are very close which makes getting in and out of Chamonix easy. Would definitely recommend it!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

It's been over eight months (time flies!) since our visit to Chamonix and this wonderful apartment, and I'm actually embarassed that I had still not posted a review.

I am, however, going to "try" to keep it simple as everyone else has already stated the obvious (location, decor, access to ski lifts & public transport etc are perfect), but, for me, the primary reason for my return visit to this property rental webpage, and ultimately a request for a further additional booking is the landlord and the Manager that I had the pleasure in dealing with in January this year (2011).

It's been stated previously, but I can quite happily support the advocation of the quality of decor, location of the property and convenience of public transport etc, but the star quality for me was the continual support and relentless dedicaton from the landlord from the initial enquiry e-mail to the postcard he sent me (from Chamonix) after our departure.

Although this was not strictly part of the service on offer, my partner, and I, were collected from the centre of Chamonix upon our arrival (we did not have a car, and were completely lost). We were taken to all of the local shops to collect amenities, given firewood by the apartment, shown around the local area, shown the public transport locations (which you can actually see from the apartment they're so close), and given a multitude of documents detailing everything we could wish to know (as newcomers to the area).

Robin, I thank you for your hospitality, and I appreciate your kindness in regards to our last day and the difficulty we had with our luggage / departure time etc.

From my partner, and I, to all prospective tentants, this location (Chamonix) is shocking, it truly is, and the apartment is wonderful. The location is incredible and the view from balcony is something I strive for in a home to retire in. You can't go wrong with this property, and the owners / caretakers are great!

The only thing left is for me to learn to ski as well as my partner (this was my first time skiing) and I'll be coming back for years!

Wow, what a great place! (for a family)

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, well-equipped apartment, with very helpful owner, a perfect base for skiing. The pictures tell the story. Great views of Mont Blanc from the apartment and the balcony. There is a lift up to the flat (3rd floor) which is a great comfort to weary limbs after a day's skiing!

A father and son (both adults) shared the room with bunks, which was a bit of a squeeze, but just about possible... they were able to use the cupboard space in the apartment's hallway and there is certainly plenty of storage space in the double bedroom. The apartment might be best suited to a couple with 2 smaller children but it would also be fine for up to 4 adults as long as they were good friends!

We had a car so can't comment on train or bus connections but would think a car is best for getting to the slopes which are further away. Chamonix is best for good intermediate or expert skiers, especially if you like off-piste.

Perfect apartment for Chamonix vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 4 people in March to ski in Chamonix. The apartment definitely exceeded our expectations. The chalet is cozy, beautifully decorated, having enough space for 4 people without feeling crowded it all. (Apartment appeared more spacious in real life than it did in the photos!) The view from the balcony is unbeatable, and the location was ideal for a ski holiday, being within easy driving distance to the different lifts. Also very easy to get into town (by car or by bus).

It was a pleasure to deal with the owners & property manager. We would 100% recommend this apartment for anybody looking to have a relaxing vacation in Chamonix. A real home away from home!
