Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Cosy ground floor studio with a garden, located at the foot of the best ski resort in Chamonix valley. Getting to and from ski resort in Chamonix can be a drag, especially in peak periods. If you stay here, you don't need to have a car, you can just walk 50m to the ski lift that takes you up to the slopes.

Residence La Verte is located within earshot of the main cabin lift that takes skiers to Grands Montets ski area. It is mere 50m away at the bottom of Pierre a Ric home run piste which means you can ski all the way to the front door.

This 25 sq m studio apartment sleeps max 4 people. There are bunk beds in the hallway and a sofa bed in the main living area. The apartment also includes a ski locker in the building to store your gear, a small garden that offers plenty of sun and is very convenient, especially in spring and summer months, a separate toilet and a bathroom with a bathtub. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and 2 electric hobs. The apartment is also equipped with LCD TV with cable TV and high-speed internet.

If you know Chamonix area, you're familiar with its not so stellar public transport and traffic jams on the way to and from the mountain, especially during high season. Staying in this location means you can easily be first in line for that first lift in the morning without having to drive your car or wait for the bus.

This apartment will suit people that come to Chamonix mostly to ski, not party hard. If you want to go for drinks to Chamonix in the evening, you might have problems getting public transport back to Argentiere.

Linen and towels are available upon request at no extra charge.

Check-in after 4pm and check-out before 11am. Since this is a private apartment, there is no reception and we would have to arrange exact time of arrival/departure so I can give you the keys.

Why Robert Volk chose Argentière

Apartment is located within earshot of the main cabin lift that takes skiers to Grands Montets ski area. Located in an area that is busy with skiers during the day, but absolutely quiet at night. Walking distance to the lovely alpine village of Argentiere where you can find a number of shops, bars and restaurants.

Perfect holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

As my friend and I opted for some late season ski fun and adventure in the Haute Savoie region, choosing the lovely Chamonix region came naturally. Especially with some Mont Blanc chic and french cuisine thrown in the holiday mix.

Being avid skiers, Robi's apartment in Argentiere seemed a perfect choice given its immediate proximity to the Grands Montets station. As it turned out, our reasoning was spot on! Upon arrival we immediately noticed that the apartment was practically right next to the chairlift station and the ski run to the valley. I mean if it were any closer, it would've been part of the lift system. If you factor in its reasonable price, it's pretty hard to beat this little gem.

As far as the accommodation goes, it was flawless, spotless, well equipped and with ample room for two, although there is room for four. Being located on floor level was, needless to say, a big and practical plus when returning from those long and - it was April after all - spectacularly wet days on the slopes. The already very warm spring sun in the afternoons - we experienced some unseasonably high temperatures of 70°F! - provided us with some much appreciated "apres ski" chill out time on the small terrace, where we enjoyed those well deserved beers. For those visiting during high season I should mention that there is also ample private parking within a few steps of the apartment, which in the parking lot madness of the main season should prove priceless.

Robi the host was very accommodating and went out of his way with any big or small request or question that we had. The town of Chamonix is a short drive from Argentiere which, incidentally and somewhat amazingly, has its own distinct and laid back charm of a typical token French ski village or a border town (which Argentiere actually is!). As if a few ski shops, a general store, boulangerie, handful of bars and restaurants, amazing natural scenery and of course lots of spring pow weren't just about everything a skier needs to make him a happy camper ;)))

Small and well equipped apartment in a good and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Robert was so friendly and available anytime via phone or instant message, before and during the stay.

The apartment is small but vey good. Also a very good place if you go with dog or children because you can go outside to the garden/terrasse at the floor without stairs.

It's very good equipped with very good Wifi and flat screen TV with a lot of channels. Also we found some food and beverage free for us and many kitchen utensils.

The location is good because you are at 10 minutes car ride from central Chamonix and a walking distance of restaurants and stores in Argentiere, a little quiet and nice town. The place is so quiet and next to the Grand Montets cable car. There is a private car park next to the appartment.

We will definitely go back as we had to come back earlier than expected due to family issues.
