Lovely apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

Nice well maintained apartment although the single beds in the second room were uncomfortable for the children and slightly too small and struggled to get the satellite TV to work. Not a major problem though.

Very well equipped kitchen

FLY:

Our recommendation is that you fly to Geneva airport it is only 50 miles to Chamonix and takes little more than an hour. You may choose to hire a car or arrange a transfer. There are many transfer providers, we work with the best and most reliable and are very happy to help arrange transfers directly from the airport to the apartment for you.

TRAIN or BUS:

You may choose to travel by train or public bus from the airport. Although this is cheaper, it does not save you much money, the journey takes much longer and you still have to find your own way to the property once you reach Chamonix.

DRIVING:

If you are driving, then from Calais the journey is around 850 miles and with minimal breaks the good motorways will see you in Chamonix in around 9 hours.

Other Activities: All Alpine activities are catered for in the area. Ask us if there is anything special you are interested in and we can arrange it!

Golf: Golf Information:

The golf course in the Chamonix valley has a high standard with excellent facilities. It is situated next to the village of Les Praz. It was built in 1934, originally with 4 holes, it was officially opened on the 20 July 1935 with 9 holes completed. It was only in 1972 the council decided on a further 9 holes. So 10 years later, on the 26 September 1982 it was relaunched with 18 holes. A technical course designed by the prestigious architect Robert Trent Jones Senior, who knew how to make the most of the environment. The course is notable for the its numerous obstacles and raised greens. There is a driving range of 29 bays of which 14 are covered, 2 training greens and 2 bunkers. Course open every day, reservations 24 hours in advance Golf De Chamonix Route du Golf Les Praz 74400 Chamonix Mont-Blanc Tel : +33(0)450530628.

Ski: Argentière is located near the head of the valley of Chamonix approximately 7km from Chamonix town. It is connected by road with Switzerland by the pass over the Col des Montets, and the Col de la Forclaz to Martigny in the Rhône valley. The village also lies on the route of the incredibly scenic Mont Blanc Express railroad which runs from St Gervais / Le Fayet through Chamonix, Argentiere and Vallorcine before crossing the Franco/Swiss border at Chatelard, passing through Finhaut before reaching the 'end of the line' in Martingy.

During your holiday if you prefer to stay in a village with a more laid back atmosphere Argentiere (1250m) is a great choice. It’s the biggest village in the valley, next to Chamonix, and is considered one of the foremost alpine ski resorts due to its location at the foot of Les Grands Montets ski resort. It has a great character of its own, with brightly coloured buildings, lively bars and restaurants.

In the winter visitors pick this town to stay in as you can walk directly to the Grand Montets ski lifts and if you are up early enough for the first lifts experience deep untouched powder! There is a fun ski school for small children, The Panda Ski Club, which is popular for skiing families. Argentière is the starting point for the Telepherique du Lognon cable car up to Les Grands Montets (3,295m), a skiing area famous for its steep and demanding slopes, both on-piste as well as off-piste. In total, the skiing area is served by 1 cable car (2 sections), 1 gondola, 5 chair-lifts and some ski lifts.

In the summer Argentiere offers access to walking trails like the Petit Balcon Sud, see our hiking and trekking section for some ideas, or sightseeing on the Glacier d'Argentiere, where you can see spectacular ice waves on the receding glacier. It also has a tennis and squash centre.

CHAMONIX: Chamonix is probably best known as the skiing and alpine capital of the world. As a destination it has a reputation for the extreme and this, whilst undoubtedly true, can mask a wide array of sporting and leisure activities (particularly in summer), peace and quiet, great nightlife, and superb scenery that can be enjoyed at whichever pace suits you. Chamonix is the perfect place to come for a weekend break or a week's holiday. In fact there is so much to do out here many people decide not to go back!

CHAMONIX: Chamonix has all the facilities of a town; with a great variety of shops, restaurants and bars, cinema, museums, sports centre, ice-skating, tennis, squash, swimming pools.
