About Michael Abromowitz
We are a sports mad family who love the activities that the Chamonix Valley provide all year round. We loved Chalet les Drus the moment we first saw it and hope that everyone who stays there gets as much enjoyment as we do from spending time there.
Michael Abromowitz purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Michael Abromowitz chose Les Houches
The proximity to Geneva Airport and ease of access by road as well as the year round activities that the Chamonix Valley provide were our main reasons for buying Chalet les Drus.
What makes this Chalet unique
Chalet les Drus is the perfect blend of being close enough to all the outdoor and Chamonix town action, whilst being a tranquil oasis to return to after a days activities or simply to be lazy and leisurely in the garden or soaking in the hot tub. The fact that you can have breakfast in France, lunch in Italy (Courmayeur) and dinner in Switzerland followed by coffee in your home country all in one day, is still something that we find amazing!

Great chalet , good communication leading up to the holiday , would go back again
Chalet is a great size , it has first class facilities for entertainment and to relax . The table tennis was a hit and it has a sauna and jacuzzi which were both used . The views from the garden are spectacular and it is a great base for skiing in the Chamonix area , I would go back .
Fantastic that you had such a great time, Ian! You and your family are welcome back anytime!
Elegant and Comfortable Chalet
Comfortably housed 9 guests, including 3 Children. Michael was very accommodating and easy to work with in all respects. The hot tub and sauna are perfect after a long day on the slopes, which are a short drive or bus ride away. Bring chains in the winter! The hill leading to the neighborhood is steep and impossible to climb without them.
Awesome to hear you guys loved your stay Sergio!
Great tip on the snow chains for the small hill leading from the main road if there has been as much snow as you have been lucky enough to have so early in the season! Hope to see you back at Chalet Drus soon.
Awesome, chalet, location and views of Mont Blanc Massif from the hot tub!
Fantastic chalet with great location for exploring Chamonix. Would definitely stay again!
Excellent chalet close to centre of Les Houches
Excellent well appointed chalet that is around 5 mins walk from the top end of Les Houches town. Great open plan living area with log burner and logs. Four bedrooms are all en-suite and all could be configured as either doubles or twins. Superb views from the dining area and from hot tub of the mountains.
Huge basement TV for watching films, table tennis plus fast wifi everywhere was very popular with teenager members of the party.
Overall the chalet is top notch, has all the kit you need and would highly recommend. Only downside was distinctly dodgy snow in the Chamonix valley, but not much the chalet can do about that. Worth considering that its only around a 40 minute drive to Courmayer through the MB tunnel if you leave in good time in the morning.
Great advice about visiting Courmayeur for additional skiing opportunities very close to Chamonix, Ally! Really happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our chalet.
Amazing location, luxurious accommodation
Very easy booking, owner very helpful. We were speechless with stunning location with views of the alps from the private sunny garden. 10 minute walk to shops and Les Houches. Plentiful walks and facilities nearby, hardly used our car. Charmonix beautiful, short car drive away. Cable cars, walking and cycling galore on your doorstep. Accommodation cosy but very luxurious. 4 double bedrooms with en suites (can be twins if requested). Games room and then the cinema room in basement with large tv and games console, lovely and cool, and excellent wi-fi, ideal for teenagers! All luxuries provided in the very well equipped kitchen. Bbq in garden got lots of use, as did the hot tub. As a family of 4 with two teenagers, everyone was well catered for. Can't write enough good things, we have booked again for next year. Thank you Mike.
Thanks Wayne! Great that you had such a good time this year. Fantastic guests and brilliant that you are coming back next year for another 2 weeks!
Perfect chalet to explore the area
Cannot praise the accommodation enough.
The chalet is beautiful, accurate to description, extremely well appointed and clean, neat and tidy on arrival.
The on site help was quick and efficient (slight issue with garden that was sorted within the hour of notification) and very friendly.
The location is perfect to pop into Chamonix (5 minute drive) or walk into Les Houches (less than 10 min walk). Close by supermarket and restaurants were also good.
Would absolutely stay again :)
Lovely to have you share our chalet and very glad that you found it perfect for your requirements whilst exploring Chamonix.
