About Alberto Zacchetti

Loving mauntains and pets.

Alberto Zacchetti purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Alberto Zacchetti chose Argentière

Situated in the heart of the French Alps, nestled beneath Mont Blanc, and with a long-established history of skiing, Chamonix/Argentiere has long been a popular destination for skiers from all over the world. In summertime the mountain valley, and its paths and peaks become the realms of hikers, cyclists and climbers. Whether you're hoping to try something new, exert yourself in the fresh air, or simply relax, Argentiere and Chamonix valley offers something for everyone. Breathtaking scenery, traditional savoy dishes (an ideal reward after a day of skiing or walking: Raclette, Pierrade, Fondue and Reblochonnade) and a diverse and bustling nightlife in Chamonix, more relaxed and quiet in Argentiere, makes this resort an ideal location for holidays all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

Considered one of the most important ski areas in the Alps thanks to its enviable location, Les Grands Montets - Argentiere is an immense territory varied, offering a wide range of slopes and off-piste skiing in the winter and a universe of extraordinary beauty in the summer.

During the summer you can make nice side walks at high altitudes, meeting fauna of various types (such as: ibex, chamois, foxes, badgers and marmots).

Possible activities are skiing, snowshoeing; ice skating, hiking, climbing, paragliding, kayaking, golf and tour the Alps by helicopter.

Accessible from Chamonix (F) or Martigny (CH), the closest airport is Geneva with shuttle between Geneva and Chamonix, by bus or by train then from Chamonix.

In conclusion, an ideal apartment for families or small groups to spend a great vacation and enjoy in complete freedom and relaxation the taste of high-altitude mountain and the beautiful landscape of Mont Blanc.

For us a perfect apartment in a perfect location, with the bonus of excellent weather!

The apartment itself is exactly as described with all the amenities we needed in a very comfortable and pleasant setting.The apartment was warm and comfortable and attractive. We were always happy to return after a day in the mountains.

The apartment is also located in a very beautiful 'hotel' which is ideally situated for most needs. Bus stops in both directions were right outside the 'hotel' and the train station just across the road. A few minutes walk and we were at the Grand Montets cable car. Various walks including the forest walk into Chamonix actually start from just behind the residence.

Argentiere itself is an attractive village and has good amenities including a very useful supermarket.

We had good communications with the owner throughout.

A highly recommended place to stay.

Great location, all very easy-

  • 5 of 5

In terms of a holiday apartment staying here just makes everything easy. Great location, easy walk to the slopes, the bus stop and the shops. Nice little sauna that helps ease tired joints and the kids loved the pool. The owner is super nice and helpful, the apartment is compact and has everything you need for a short relaxing trip.

Bel Appartement dans résidence de standing

  • 5 of 5

Très bel appartement dans résidence de standing. Les prestations au niveau de l'appartement sont optimales, il ne manque rien et tout est propre et en bon état. La situation de l'ensemble est idéale, loin de la fureur de Chamonix et près du téléphérique des Grands Montets. La piscine est un plus pour se délasser après les randonnées. Etant venu hors période scolaire nous avons apprécié le calme et l'absence d'affluence. Le petit plus de l'appartement, la vue sur la Verte et les Drus, magique !

The resort will seduce you either during winter or in summer, thanks to numerous outdoor activities; but in the case of bad weather, the view of Mont Blanc and Les Grands Montes is spectacular from the pool :o)

There are several ski resorts in the area: Les Grands Montets, Le Tour / Vallorcine, Montenvers, Brevent, Flegère Aiguille du Midi reachable on foot or by bus in front of the residence or train 50 meters from the residence. In the summer, many are the paths of high mountains (example: Le Grand Balcon Nord / Sud) and low altitude (example: Le Petit Balcon Nord / Sud). I personally enjoyed climbing on the glacier d 'Argentiere (cable car Lognan - 300 mt) and admire the view of the mountains. Chamonix then is the kingdom of paragliding, it is possible to do tandem flights for an unforgettable experience and a unique landscape. If you want more details for your sport and adventure activities, do not hesitate to contact me.

From Martigny (Switzerland) take the road to Chamonix Mont Blanc, then across the Forclaz Pass and the Les Grands Montets one until Argentiere (34 km).

Nearest Airport Geneva (CH) - shuttle line between Geneva and Chamonix.
