Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Chamonix - Chamonix roof top apartment

2/3 beds,1 bathroom,kitchen,sitting room,large terrace,sleeps 5 -7 (8 at a pinch

Large, south facing penthouse apartment with spectacular views of Chamonix and the Mont Blanc range. 200 yards from the central square of Chamonix and 20 yards from the railway station, from where ski buses to all pistes depart regularly. This apartment has a large dining room and kitchen combined; a master bedroom with double bed and small balcony; a further bedroom with 4 beds (2 in bunk, 1 stow-away); sitting room with double sofa bed and small balcony; bathroom with double wash basin and combined bath/shower; separate loo; large private terrace (size of the entire flat again) and private underground parking for one car. It is equipped with TV, DVD, Broad Band Internet access, UK satellite, dish washer and washing machine. This is a non-smoking apartment.

Chamonix is an unbelievable mountain town - not at all like a typical purpose built resort. Steeped in history - from alpine climbing to the Olympics. The apartment is in the centre of the town with dozens of bars and restaurants, discos, shops and the Brevent & Auguille du Midi cable cars. Enjoy awesome views of the Mont Blanc range from the apartment. There's a great mix of ski terrain from town centre blues & reds to some of the best, deepest and steepest off-piste slopes in the World!

Geneva airport is a short 60 mile transfer away (easily arranged) or the motorway/ peage virtually runs to the door from Calais for Brits who drive. The central railway station is a 2 minute walk away so you don't even need a car once you're in town. Chamonix is an outstanding venue year-round! Buses to the whole of Chamonix valley leave from the station.

Summer details: Chamonix’s a year-round adventure play ground. You can walk, climb (any style to any standard), paraglide, hang glide, parachute (45 minutes away), mountain bike, fish, golf, party, eat, go bowling, swim, play tennis, dance at nightclubs, sight see, break out the water colour paints or gamble at the casino! It is all here for you.

What a lovely time

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to this very cute, clean chalet complete with snow man on the spacious balcony. We could not have been better located - barely 20 yards to the nearest ski hire shop (Pro Ski - 30% discount if you book online in advance) and super market and close to some great restaurants - would definitely recommend Atmosphere, which is 5 mins away - and 5 minutes from the main bus stop to the various pistes in the valley. John was very helpful and we'd definitely recommend this to a friend

Small gem in the Savoie

  • 5 of 5

A real find within a lovely village.The flat was

exactly as described by the Owner,the separate living room,with all the UK television channels,a joy, and the view from the main rooms and terrace splendid.

As dog owners two walks close by were a boon, as was the underground parking.

Well done John

Perfect family apartment in Chamonix

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment and both times we have found it ideal for our needs. It is clean and spacious (family of 4 so oodles of space). It is ideal for the train station and Montevers and also for Planards as they are all only several hundred metres walking away. Easy to get into central Chamonix (again only a few hundred metres of walking) and also to Sanglard for kid's hire skis. The underground car park is a real boon as can load up in relative warmth and also know that your car is secure and out of the weather every night. We will definitely be back and maybe in the summer as well so we can make full use of the huge outside dining area.

Location

Nearest Airport
60 Miles
Geneva

250 metres from the central square of Chamonix and 100 metres from the railway station, from where ski buses to all pistes depart regularly.

Ski: For those who have been to Chamonix before, they will tell you that the off piste skiing is some of the finest in the World, but also there is on piste skiing to suit all levels and abilities.

The terrace is excellent additional living space (twice the size of the apartment) when the sun shines and is equipped with tables and chairs to seat eight people. The apartment is strictly non smoking as this is our home when guests are not staying. If you are a smoker then you will probably want to choose elsewhere.
