Was really impressed with my stay at this property. Customer service was spot on - you were even provided with some basic groceries on your arrival. Apartment was only a 10 minute walk away from the local supermarket and restaurants and the free train/bus pass you were given made getting about so easy. If you like walking there are endless signposted tracks on your doorstep - there are just so many things to do here I am sure you could enjoy repeat holidays for years to come. Am already planning my dates to book for next year. Would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for a 9 day walking break. The apartment itself is just as described; it sits in an amazing position right at the foot of the mountains with a birds eye view of Mont Blanc from the balcony and also overlooking beautiful lawns. The sun is on the balcony in the morning so perfect for an al fresco breakfast! The apartment is very well equipped with all the home from home comforts you would expect (including the use of a washing machine - great if you like to pack light!).

It is possible to start walks from the front door but if you want to go further down the valley towards Chamonix and beyond I would recommend having your own transport in the summer as the bus service only runs once an hour.

If you need to book an airport transfer, our daughter used ChamVan to shuttle her to and from Geneva airport. They were very reliable and will do very early (4am) pick ups which many of the others don't (maybe because of low demand in the summer months).

We ate out a few times and really liked La Flambee near the main Chamonix railway station. The food was excellent and it wasn't touristy like the central Chamonix restaurants. Hotel Chris-Tal in Les Houches also serves good value food. We found everywhere quite quiet in June and cooked in mostly. The nearest supermarket, Super-U is only a 15 minute walk and is very well stocked. Their petrol is the cheapest too.

All in all this is a great base for an active holiday in the Haute Savoie!

A lovely place!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this apartment! It was very clean, well equipped and the view from the balcony is fantastic. We loved being in the quieter village of Taconnaz/Les Houches and yet near to Chamonix with its shops, restaurants and activities. There are endless possibilities for walks (all really well sign posted) and the scenery is gorgeous at every turn. We hired a car which meant we could really explore the area, including lakes to swim in, waterfall walks etc and the Mont Blanc multi-pass is a must for seeing the Aiguille de Midi and Mer de la Glace but also to take the less busy cable cars/ski lifts to walks with amazing views of valleys, mountains and glaciers. Tom, the owner, was very helpful and gave us good advice for our time there. The tourist information office in Les Houches were also very helpful. Four of us stayed in the apartment, including two teenagers, and it was a great holiday. We would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my boyfriend, dad and sister last week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was as described and was immaculately clean. The directions provided to us by the owner were spot on and the apartment is so easy to find.

James was so helpful in answering any questions we had about the area.

I would highly recommend this apartment.

In relation to Les Houches, we actually never ate out there but went to The Kitsch Inn and Le Christiania bar near the Bellevue gondola for après ski. The food in Le Christiania looked very good though. I’d recommend a delicious and reasonable restaurant in Chamonix called La Flambée. They do a great set menu for lunch and in the evening.

Thanks James and Tom for making everything so easy for us!!

An excellent quality base with great featuresg

  • 5 of 5

We found the location to be very quiet and equally good inside in terms of sound insulation from other apartments.

The position is convenient for the main road, a 5 minute walk to the ski bus and a short drive to local shops including a decent local supermarket with cheap petrol. Les Houches is a 5 minute drive away, with other ski areas being no more than 20 minutes away. It was a real bonus to have the underground parking to keep the car snow and ice free.

The apartment has a nice small Sony Bravia TV with UK Freeview channels as well as local channels. There is also a PS2 and music system and free WiFi. The kitchen is well equipped with a multi function microwave/convection oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The fridge is a good size with freezer compartment. The sofa was very comfortable, with cosy evenings spent in front of the log-burning stove. We didn't try any local restaurants as we have a young child so arrived well stocked up! We would not hesitate to recommend this property: the best we have come across.

we were using HomeAway holiday for the first time, so we were little worried about going somewhere we already paid for and didn`t have any personal contact with the agency. But after arrival to the place, we lost all worries, because the place was exactly as it was described. The apartment was clean, nature around just stunning and we spent there really relaxing and nice time. I would recommend it to anyone who loves wonderful mountain view and nature.

The only thing we didn`t expect (but not related to the apartment) is the nature of french people meaning that the services are not sometimes welcoming and the navigating signs are not clear.
