Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Have visited the Chamonix area several times and always stayed in Les Houches as very convenient location for exploring the valley. This apartment was excellent. Clean and well equipped. Very Comfortable beds. View from the balcony was fabulous. Photos don't do it justice! We will definitely return.

A very clean, comfortable and good appartment with all the necessary facilities and wonderful views.

  • 4 of 5

We had a marvellous stay, the apartment was very comfortable and were very hsppy to spend most of our evenings there chilling out. The underground parking and lift connection to the apartment was very good. Great to have a washing machine as well as the dishwasher. The satellite television was useful. Some suggestions which we hope will be seen as constructive. The book with apartment information needs to be updated covering all points in English. A coffee table in front of the sofa's would be really a useful addition for the drinks to stand on, when you are sitting down.

Thanks for a great trip.

Apart from that a very good apartment.

Well-appointed and comfortable apartment with great view in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to this apartment in Les Houches over the February half term for the past four years. It is ideal for our family - 2 adults, 2 children - offering a spacious living and dining area, a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. As we drive from the UK, the availability of a garage inside the building is particularly helpful during the ski season. The apartment is less than 5 mins walk from the Bellevue Cable Car, ski bus stop and a selection of good local shops and restaurants. It is a short drive from Chamonix and, while the skiing in Les Houches is lovely, it offers easy access by car, bus or train to the ski areas elsewhere in the valley and also those in nearby Saint Gervais, Megeve, Combloux, Les Contamines and Courmayeur. We will be returning next year.

Perfect location. Close to lifts and supermarket.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location! The apartment is just a 5 minute walk to the Belle Vue cable car. The village centre with a choice of a few restaurants & bars is close by and it's a 10 minute walk to the supermarket.

The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday including a washing machine, which was very handy. If you like to cook there's good knives, pans and plenty of crockery and cutlery etc.

Great views from the lounge balcony.

Although on the main road through Les Houches, the apartment is very quiet at night and we had no problems sleeping.

The apartment was lovely and warm with loads of hot water and was very clean.

There were just two of us and the apartment was plenty big enough. The bunk beds looked very comfortable but as they are located in the spacious hallway, would probably be suited to a family with children or 2 couples who know each other really well. There is also a sofa bed in the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner.

Everything you need is here including TV. DVD player, selection of films, games and fast wifi connection.

We love Les Houches and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Vistas fantásticas de la montaña

Apartamento muy bien ubicado con una terraza con excelentes vistas a la montaña, fantástica para disfrutar, al menos en verano. A mejorar la limpieza y la cama (toca cambiar el colchón).

Clearly the Alps aren't within 10 minutes of the beach. However, during the summer a quick 15 minute drive will take you to Lac Du Passy. Here you can swim in a large warm fresh water lake, with fabulous views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains. There is a small beach and large park surrounding the lake providing all the space you need to sunbathe, kick a ball or throw a frisbee. There is also a small cafe and a barbeque area. There is a 2 Euro per car charge to park.


Les Houches is only 50 mins from Geneva airport, transfers can be arranged.

Car hire is not essential especially in the winter as the local bus service can transport you all around the valley. We would probably recommend a car for the summer as you may wish to visit further afield - Italy is only 10 mins away.


Geneva airport, 90km.

Chamonix, 6km.

Further Details:

Bus stop - The closest bus stop is about 150m from the apartment.

Ski Pass - Ticket office at Bellevue Lift station (150m).

Ski Hire - Numerous within 200m of apartment.

Supermarket - Shopi, Les Houches (500m).

Boulangerie - 150m.
