I've been a keen skier for many years, and was looking for a place that had year-round appeal and good access to other ski areas and holiday attractions. The Chamonix valley hits the spot, and has some of the best scenery in the Alps.
Keith Oborn purchased this apartment in 2002
We looked at a number in the Valley. Chamonix town is a lot more expensive, and can be noisy. This apartment had the unusual benefit of a large terrace, and also unusually for a place of this size is all on one level.
Chamonix and Les Houches are the antithesis of the purpose built ski resort. They are real communities, with a hugely mixed population (English stand-up comedy in one pub!). Businesses are individually owned and know they are competing for your custom. So it's friendly and dynamic. Skiing is not even the biggest sport - that' climbing. But the skiing is world-class.
We booked this apartment having spent many holidays in the Chamonix area. The Apartment was spacious and as there were only 4 of us gave us all our own space. The external space was fantastic. My husband and father spent many evenings playing with their cameras at the extraordinary views from the terraces. It was my fathers first visit to the Chamonix valley and he now understands wht we keep on returning for more. With a car it is very easy to get around, although one day when the boys went away to do some serious climbing my father and I ventured on the bus to Chamonix. I have to say they were excellent and very cheap. The facilities within Les Houches were perfectly adequate, with two supermarkets a number of bakers and shops and numerous restuarants.
The house was extremely well equipped, can't think on anything not provided.
Holiday was very successfull
Best apartment with the best view! Just few min from Chamonix, one hour from Anssey lack. We and our 3 children (14, 12, 12) have really fun there >> rope parks, cable lifts, mountain trains, beautiful nature nearby.
Apartment itself is a modern wooden apartment very comfortable and … sitting in the terrace and looking on the Mont Blanc and Agile amide every day from morning to 10 pm (late sun set on the mountains) just beautiful.
I'm recommending this apartment strongly.
We will return.
This was our 5th year staying in Les Houches but this was one of the best apartments we've stayed in. The size of the bedrooms was great, for once it didn't feel like we were sleeping in a cupboard. It had everything you needed for self-catering and more. It was in a super location, close to the shops, bars and the Bellevue cable car.
We will return, thanks Keith don't change anything!
The Partridges and friends
We were a party of two families, consisting of 4 adults and 3 teenagers.
Before we arrived at this fabulous apartment, Keith (owner) was really helpful, by email and on the telephone. He was very friendly and informative, and made sure that our stay was comfortable and well catered for with regard to equipment, wifi etc.
When we arrived, the apartment was clean and warm and there was ample space for us all.
Keith (caretaker) and his wife visited us a couple of times and were lovely.
The outside space if you were using this apartment in the Summer months was excellant and very well equipped.
The location was very good, only a few minutes walk to the Bellevue lift, and to local shops and restaurants.
We will definitely enquire about coming to this lovely accommodation again.
My family and I stayed in this apartment during February half term. It was our second trip to Les Houches (but our first in this apartment) and we weren't disappointed. The apartment was ideal for our needs - plenty of space for a family of 7 (2 adults & 5 children). The kitchen was well equipped, the apartment was warm and we never had a problem with hot water. Keith (the owner) was extremely helpful before our trip and the other Keith (the agent in the village) helped us out with a couple of minor queries during our stay. The location was excellent - couple of minutes walk to the bellevue lift or to the bus stop. There is a bakery just down the road and the supermarket is about a 10 minute walk.
We had a fabulous holiday and would love to return in the future.
Thank you Keith for the use of your great apartment. We were all very happy by the size of the place, for 8 men we had no problems. It's location to the lifts is exellent, also the town has some great places to eat.If you fancy a good meal or some light eating with wine, Les Houches will cover it. Once again thank you and hopefully see you next year.
At the entry to the Chamonix Valley, with its own ski area. A quiet village five km from Chamonix town, easy access to all local and area facilities.
Other Activities: Climbing, rafting, canyoning, forest adventure parks, good shopping.
Golf: Chamonix golf course, approx. 6 miles away
Ski: The Chamonix Valley is world-famous for it's variety and range of skiing, but it is emphatically NOT a linked, purpose built, ski system.
|Fees||No additional mandatory fees|
Any stay duration is fine, any arrival and departure date. Because of turnaround costs I charge a minimum of 4 days rental for short stays.
