About Melanie Davis
We moved over to the Alps in 2007, on our first wedding anniversary. We rented in Chatel and bought an amazing penthouse apartment in La Chapelle d'Abondance. These are both villages in the Portes du Soleil ski domain. We had a few good years in La Chapelle, running our catered chalet, but our hearts were always in the Mont Blanc area. Warren taught himself to snowboard in Chamonix back in 1997, and then arranged many boys holidays here after that. He introduced me to the area when i was pregnant, so because i missed out on the boarding then, he convinced me that we should spend our honeymoon here. It has always been a special place for us. We have been lucky enough to buy a chalet in Les Houches, just down the road from Chamonix. Living in the top & renting out the lower apart.
Melanie Davis purchased this Condo in 2012
What makes this Condo unique
Although living in a traditional farming village in the Alps was beautiful and serene, being in Les Houches is uplifting and inspiring. Not only because there is a buzz of life in the village, and everything is so convenient, but taking in the surrounding views, the scale of the mountains about you, gives you a sense of awe you cannot explain.

We have been traveling around France for almost two weeks. This is the nicest place we’ve stayed so far. Very clean and comfortable! Very pleasant owner!
Hope you enjoyed the sunshine in the mountains on Friday!
Enjoy the rest of your travels.
A lovely time had by all
We were two travellers and our dog - we had a great stay, in a lovely property, with ample space. The owners were exceptionally helpful, even down to booking a vets appointment for our dog, and we had a fantastic time. A great location with a short walk to the gondala and an even shorter walk to the ski bus stop.
Ah thanks for your kind words. Hope to see you again sometime soon!
Great Accomodation and Location
The appartment is very clean and comfortable, home from home. Toys and books available for children and excellent internet connection. Beds very comfortable, kitchen facilities great. We used the local bus service to the prarion lift area each day with ease, bus stop less than 1 minute walk from apartment. Hosts friendly and accommodating, evening catering services were super, large and tasty portions. We would defineately stay again and recommend to others. Thanks for a great stay.

ambiance très agréable et cocooning
séjour très agréable avec 2 pièces pour dormir et un séjour et cuisine suffisamment grands pour être à l'aise en famille.
Hôtes très gentils et serviables.
Merci beaucoup et à bientôt
Appartement très confortable, agréable, très propre.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par la propriétaire qui est adorable, très souriante, d'une extrême gentillesse.
L'appartement est bien agencé, environnement au calme bien que pas loin du centre. Tout est décoré avec goût.
Petit espace à l'extérieur pour prendre les repas, bien ombragé.
Parfait. Excellent séjour à renouveler.
C'était un vraiment plaisir de vous rencontrer. J'espère qu'on se reverra un autre fois.
logement très bien équipé et bien entretenu
Nous avons apprécié la propreté et l'équipement complet. Rien ne manquait même pas les torchons, serviettes, draps! Le logement était bien chauffé et la literie très bonne ( les lits pour les enfants sont cependant un peu justes en longueur, notre petite fille de 10 ans logeait tout juste). Les propriétaires habitent au dessus mais il n'y a pas de bruit. Parfait!
La propriétaire ( anglaise) nous a informé des commerces avoisinants très gentiment malgré un français un peu approximatif.
Nous n'hésiterons pas à recommander cette location.
The apartment is just a stone's throw away from a selection of French and English restaurants, a creperie, a pizza restaurant, even an indian restaurant, a bank and cash machine, a post office, local museum, boulangerie and Carrefour supermarket.
It is only a few minutes walk to the local ski lifts, the 'Bellevue' telecabine and 'Le Touchet' (where there is also an Ice rink (in the winter) and basketball court (in the summer)) and 20 mins to the 'Prarion' cable-car.
Plus it is only a 10 minute drive, or a bus or train journey to the heart of Chamonix and it's ski slopes, as well as the gondola up to the Aiguille de Midi, with amazing views of Mont Blanc, and the mountain train to the Mer de Glace glacier and Ice Cave.
1 hour drive from Geneva.
10 minute drive to Chamonix plus a regular bus (free with your ski pass) and local train service.
20 minutes drive to St Gervais/Megeve.
