About the property

2/3 beds,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.

Beautiful, spacious apartment in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous 11 night stay in Chamonix. John's apartment was perfect for us in every way. Clean, well equipped, warm and welcoming with a spectacular view from every window; furthermore there is a very large roof terrace to sit and enjoy some 'apres ski' surrounded by gorgeous mountain views. We were very fortunate to have enjoyed exceptional amounts of snow this year which made for some superb skiing! The apartment is centrally located with an abundance of bars restaurants and shops literally on the door step. The bus stops close by meant we could access all ski resorts with relative ease. I would have no hesitation in choosing to stay in this apartment again; I wouldn't highly recommend John's apartment, I would specially recommend it!

Wonderful apartment in the Center of town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in this apartment. The location was perfect!! The apartment itself was very spacious. We were only two people, but did have two others over for dinner on the amazing terrace. We will definitely stay here again if it's available during our annual visit to Chamonix :)

Fantastic apartment in centre of Chamonix!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property in the centre of Chamonix. It is a good size, has great views of the mountains and the bonus of a roof terrace where the kids enjoyed making snowmen. All items you would hope to find at a home away from home are present and it was very easy to stay and enjoy our time as a family of five with three young children. John is very responsive to email communication and answered any queries we had very quickly and efficiently. If you are after an apartment in the centre of Chamonix you will be pushed to find something better.

Great location in Chamonix

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in October in Chamonix. The apartment was great, central location, garage parking, lovely view of Mont-Blanc. We walked to most places. Moo is right next door, had my first sweet potato burger, it was delicious. Went to the top of the mountain to "step into the void", it was very exciting and we would highly recommend it. We drove through the Mont-Blanc tunnel to Italy for lunch one day, that was really fun. John was a good host and explained everything in detail. Thank you for letting us stay, hope to be back one day. we will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Nearest Airport
60 Miles

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.
