CLEAN & COMFORTABLE WITH STUNNING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times & booked for this summer too. It is beautifully maintained and everything works. The kitchen is really well thought out & has everything needed to cook meals every night. Views are stunning & the locality makes it ideal for winter sports (very near Grand Montets lift), lovely in the summer with loads of low level walks & situated right in Argentiere & easy access rail/bus/car to Chamonix. A relaxing and easy holiday for our family with our older children still wanting to come.

Lovely, practical ski apartment at a great price

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Argentiere many times in the Winter and Summer and this apartment is lovely. Beautiful view of the Aiguille Verte, Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc. Really close to the lifts and bottom of the Grand Montets resort run. Really powerful shower. Owners extremely helpful and friendly. We definitely plan to stay there again.

Living room and kitchen fine and a great view. Plenty of storage space. Double bedroom generous and comfy but bunk room tiny and no heating in the bathroom so can be cold getting out of the shower but that did have great pressure.

Easy access to pistes on foot or by car or bus. Handy for ski shops, restaurants and only 5 mins walk from a supermarket and bakery that's open in time for breakfast. Easy access by car to Chamonix for more shops and restaurants and by motorway from northern Europe.

Owners friendly and helpful. Good spot for a week's skiing or mountain wlaking in summer.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your time in writing a review. Sorry about heating in bathroom, all apartments have cooler bath rooms. The bunk room is ideal for children who turn the room in to their secret den. The double sofa bed in lounge is more suitable for additional adult use.
