A great summer retreat with fantastic views

  • 4 of 5

We had 10 wonderful nights at Chalet Charme and it proved to be a great location for our holiday. It was everything we had expected and more! The views from the terrace were stunning. It's not too far to walk into the local village (Les Houches) but the walk back up the hill is tough on a hot day! It's 5 minutes by car to the supermarket. The lighting in the kitchen could be improved and it would be nice if there were shower screens in the bathrooms and a shower head holder so you could have a proper shower. The beds were comfortable as was the seating in the lounge area although we spent most of our time on the terrace as the weather was glorious. Great having the BBQ as it made meal times so easy. Overall we thought it was very good and had everything we needed. We really appreciated being able to occupy the property when we arrived earlier than expected. Thank you!

Lovely chalet in good location.

  • 5 of 5

This Chalet was lovely. We were a family of 4 but there was plenty of space for 6 or even 8 with the 2 bathrooms. The view from the chalet is superb with the Aguille de midi and Mont Blanc in sight above you and the Brevant side also viewable from the terrace. We liked the location of the chalet as it is a mile away from Chamonix and the centre of Les Houches which meant it was peaceful after a busy day in the throngs in the centre of Chamonix. It was a way to walk though to any bars or restaurants with young kids; and if you did walk, it is quite a hill to get back to the chalet so we had to use the car.

The Chalet is really well equipped and maintained and had everything we needed. The garden was a nice space although sloped which limited the playing of games a little.

Beautiful views, luxurious beds

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying at the chalet. It was well-maintained and the owner was attentive and kind. I would wholeheartedly recommend this chalet to a family coming to visit the area. It was accessible and my children loved playing hide and seek and running around in the garden. The beds were very comfy too, with goosedown duvets and high thread-count sheets!

Fantastic chalet with stunning decor

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the chalet and were really impressed, especially with the interior. Exquisitely decorated with some great detailing. We booked the chalet for our family skiing holiday, 3 adults and 4 small kids.

The chalet itself is in a great location with stunning views right across the Chamonix valley. During our stay the chalet was bathed in sunshine so we made full use of the great sunny balconies.

Inside, the kitchen is well equipped, nice big fridge/freezer and the lounge is inviting and warm with great open plan living. It has a lovely wood burning fireplace but we didn’t actually need to use it during our stay.

The bedrooms are all of a very good size with very comfortable beds and lots of storage and the underfloor heating throughout, kept us all toasty and warm.

The two good sized bathrooms are also tastefully done with plenty of piping hot water any time you need it. The mezzanine bedroom is particularly nice with a great relaxing feel to it.

Wi-Fi / internet was rock solid so had no issues with internet access, and the smart TV in the lounge made entertaining the kids nice and easy on bad weather days.

The chalet also has a great garden which the kids could actually sled in, and even had a kids swing for them to play on. The useful boot room/ boiler room is great for storing luggage and perfect for taking off all your wet things after skiing. It also has a washing machine and tumble dryer which was very handy. The nice big driveway made parking our big van a breeze too.

It is located at the top of a quiet road but is also very quick and easy to get to the main road into Chamonix centre with good access to public transport.

Corin and Claire were great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay, which we did.

Awesome, can’t wait to go back!
