About Steven Winstone-Adair
After Spending a Ski Season in Whistler, Canada I fell in love with the Mountains. I have my own Telecom Business in London, and strived to own my own Apartment in the Mountains.
Steven Winstone-Adair purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Steven Winstone-Adair chose Les Houches
When I saw that MGM were building in this area and location, it 'ticked' all the boxes. I wanted a property was close to the Ski lift so that I and future tennants did not have to get a Bus or walk far to the Ski lift. This was perfect with its great location to both lift and local amenities.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view, Location and the peace and quiet. If I want to have more options I am only a short bus ride to Chamonix.

overall the property was as described. Nathalie was very helpful.
It was a shame that the upstairs air con still did not work making the upstairs bedrooms pretty untenable. Nathalie provided a fan and a mobile air con but was very noisy. Also a great shame that the jacuzzi didnt work despite Nathalies best efforts. Slightly lacking in kitchen utensils to feed 9 but the outside hot plate and eating area was great. Parking was a challenge. We werent expecting to cross a road to the swimming pool and share with so many other apartments but it was fine apart from some other clients whose apartments overlooked the pool and complained that the kids were splashing too much and playing rather than swimming. Otherwise, good position, and a great family house
This is our second stay at this property having used the property as our base for skiing. This property is in a perfect location and is very well equipped and imaculately clean. The bus stop into for Chamonix is 2 mins and the train 5 mins away. The apartment block is very quiet with superb views of the mountains. The bakery is a 2 min walk. We have 2 teenage children and there was plenty of room. In summary a great place to stay to explore the valley and mountains and a very comfy place to relax at the end of the day.
A fantastic well equipped apartment, situated in a perfect location in the Chamonix valley.
Les Houches is a fantastic location in both the winter and summer. My family and I have spent our winter and summer holidays in Les Houches for the last 15 years. As a ski resort Les Houches is a perfect family resort. A great place for children to learn to ski with opportunities to be challenged! Les Houches is also a great place to access the whole of the Mount Blanc unlimited ski area either by car or bus. This apartment is in a great spot near to the ski lift (2 minute walk) - It is also possible to ski in at the end of the day. I know this area very well and this is as good a location as you can find. It is very clean, maintained and well equipped. In terms of space, it is very comfortable for 4 - 6 people. There is a sofa bed, which is clearly new and fits nicely into the apartment. The apartment is very warm and has a very home like feel to it. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, and will definitely be using it again in the future.
Great apartment in ideal location.
We had a great stay (family of 4). Lovely apartment just a 3 minute walk from the telecabine - perfect location for skiing. Thank you!

Well located apartment ..
This apartment is well situated for the Prarion (bubble) lift which is a short distance away. The apartment was a good size for our party (4) but could easily accommodate 6 as is advertised. The facilities were amply sufficient for our needs and contact with the owner has been first class. I have little doubt that we will look at booking again.
The apartment is situated only 150 metres from the Prairon lift and Ski School in the sunniest part of the village. Nearby amenities include; shops, Restaurent, Lake, Kids Ski slope, Ski and snowboard rental, shop with Bread and provisions, Tennis club and new Health spa (for massage and Pool). A 5 minute walk will bring you to the Junction that also provides some further nice restaurents, bar and a new Apres and late night bar.
Other Activities: Tennis, Health Spa
Ski: The apartment is based only 150 metres away from the new speedy lift system is Le Prairon. On a good day you can ski straight to the apartment via the Balcony to offer the full 'ski in'. The area is often home to the World Downhill Ski championship which normally occurs in Early January. The runs are for all abilities and offers some of the most scenic routes looking up at Mt Blanc and the surrounding areas.
