A lovely spacious apartment in a chalet style building with stunning views of Mont Blanc from the south facing garden and overlooking a large meadow area. Excellent location in a quiet cul de sac in the traditional village of Les Praz. Within a few minutes walking distance of the Flegere lift, skiing, golf course, bars, shops and restaurants, and less than a 5 minute drive or approximately 25 minutes walk to Chamonix centre. Alternatively you can catch the mountain railway train from the nearby station to Chamonix or to Argentiere and Vallorcine. Wonderful skiing in winter and excellent walking and cycling in summer at the doorstep. The location of the property gives you the benefit of being near the amenities and liveliness of Chamonix, whilst enjoying peaceful and scenic surroundings. The Chamonix Valley has something for everyone with 350 pisted runs covered by the Mont Blanc Ski Pass in winter and numerous walking and cycling trails in summer.

About anne coates
I live with my husband in Bedfordshire in England and have 3 daughters and 10 grandchildren. One of our daughters (and 4 of our grandchildren) is a doctor in Geneva, which is why we bought our apartment 11 years ago, just after our second grandchild was born.
Why anne coates chose Chamonix
We have spent many happy days and weeks with our family and with friends in the apartment in both summer and winter. We love the sunny south facing aspect and the light airiness of it and there is plenty of space for 6 or 8. You can walk straight from the apartment or catch one of the lifts and enjoy the high mountain views on marked paths. There is lots for the children to do in the area and many adventurous activities for young and old. The nearby golf course is superb and the skiing is second to none. Try the restaurant at the Hotel Eden or the Golf Club - we think they are the best in the area.

Lovely chalet apartment, great location and fantastic views!
We spent two weeks (4 adults and a 9 year old) at this lovely chalet apartment. It's exceptionally well placed being only a minute's walk from Les Praz train station (the trains are electric and wonderfully quiet) which takes you into Chamonix centre in just a few minutes. We immediately felt at home and the apartment was spacious and well appointed (so good to have a dishwasher, washing machine and the showers were excellent with plenty of hot water). We booked the chalet as the weather in Chamonix can be variable (as experienced camping here!), as it turned out we mostly needed it as a cool refuge as the weather was so warm - it did however keep us warm and dry on the couple of occasions it rained. The little garden (and table and chairs) was really handy and had an amazing view of the Mont Blanc massive and Dru. Having camped for the last 30+ years here we are all well and truly converted to staying in this lovely chalet. It was easy to book and communication with the owner Anne was excellent and access to the chalet was smoothly negotiated by her agent in Chamonix. The vote all round was 'best holiday ever'!
A great house with stunning views
The house is really great, the views are wonderful and all the family had a great time. Andy was also very responsive and helpful for every question.
A couple of things to consider - there is no stand for the dishes we wash, so that is a bit cumbersome when coming to do the dishes. Also, there are extra blankets in the closet but no extra covers for them so cannot really be used.
Other than that, all was great and really perfect. Thank you for hosting us!
Thank you very much for your review and we are very pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and the setting.
With regard to the dish washing, we thought that most people would use the dishwasher, but we will take on board your comments and buy a stacker next time we are in Chamonix.
The duvets stored in the cupboard are for extra people sleeping in the lounge and we would ask Andy to supply the linen for them. So sorry about that.
We are grateful for your comments
Excellent, well equipped and in a perfect location
Great apartment with very helpful, responsive and friendly owners. The location was superb with great views down the Chamonix valley towards Mont Blanc and across to the Aiguille du Dru, probably our favourite atmospheric peak. It was very easy to relax whilst sitting and admiring the beautiful alpine glow as the sun set over the snowy peaks. A perfect place for photos , time lapses and taking it easy to marvel at the whole Chamonix valley.
We did plenty of skiing and being very close to the railway stop meant that return trips from Le Buet after tours in the Aiguille Rouge were very easy.
Whilst not in the middle of Chamonix we loved being close enough to walk into Chamonix along the river in less than half an hour. In the opposite direction, we really enjoyed walks up into the woods and other beautiful areas around Les Praz like "Paradis des Praz". When walking was not possible, the frequent bus service into town was perfect and very convenient.
The local Epicerie in Les Praz high street was a friendly place with some great products. As it opened at 7:30 we were regular visitors for fresh bread and pastries for breakfast. We also tried the local restaurant, La Cremerie Du Moulin Les Praz and really enjoyed their excellent pizzas.
Overall the apartment was just what we were after. The three good sized bedrooms meant there was plenty of space. Best though was the open plan living area and kitchen which was spacious and a very social space.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could not have asked for a better apartment, location and owners, just what we had hoped for.
Great apartment, loads of space, great location.
The apartment was fantastic, well equipped with lots of room for five of us. Les Praz is a lovely village and it's easy to walk into Chamonix. Loads to do nearby. Arrangements re booking, arrival and departure were all very easy. We had a fabulous time.
Perfect in every way! Convenient, quiet and charming!
Exceeded all expectations!! We had a magnificent holiday with this as our home base. We fell in love with Les Praz, Chamonix and the local people. We spent two weeks here and never ran out of things to do for all the ages. Our best holiday to date...thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Very good for grown up families
Spacious and well equipped apartment, plenty of wardrobes, drawers etc so you can really settle in and feel at home. Everything you need in the kitchen if you want to rustle up a meal for eight.
