A lovely chalet in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week here in a well equipped and well styled property. In all our years of staying in self catering accommodation this ranks among the best. We have never come across such a great space as the sun deck, to sit on there with a BBQ looking at the most stunning view is an absolute delight. We loved it and hope to return.

Harmonious Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in this lovely condo in June, 2016. In that time, we did a lot of hiking and saw the mountains from all sorts of views - but NONE compared to what we enjoyed from our stunning temporary home in Les Houches. Pictures just can't capture the magnificence of the mountains - the depth and scope. The light, the clouds, the shadows were all constantly in motion making each glance different and special. The deck over the parking pad was a tremendous bonus!

Eleonore and her husband, Nicholas are really good people - kind and generous to the core. Even their cats were friendly, coming by to say hello every now and again but never interfering.

The space is beautifully decorated and well equipped, clean and modern, and quite roomy compared to many of the vacation rentals we have experience with. If our travels ever bring us to the area again, it would be our pleasure to stay here again. No question - a tremendous value.

Owner's Response: Merci Charlie et Elisabeth d'avoir écrit un message si long et si gentil. J'espère que la suite de votre voyage dans le sud de la France vous plait et que vous n'avez pas trop chaud ! Le paysage est très différent de chez nous mais tout aussi beau. J'ai oublié de vous dire de faire éventuellement un saut du côté de Fayence, qui est un joli petit village pas trop loin de Nice. J'y ai passé beaucoup de temps enfant chez mes grands-parents et il y a le 11 septembre sur la place du village un repas typique organisé : un aïoli !!! Ce jour là l'ambiance est vraiment super ! Et le mardi, le jeudi et le samedi il y a un joli marché sur la place du village. Beau voyage à vous et j'espère qu'on aura l'occasion de se revoir. Encore un grand merci, c'était vraiment un plaisir de vous rencontrer !

Unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in June 2014 for one week. Our breath was taken away immediately upon arriving and seeing those views of Mont Blanc! They are even better than in the pictures. We had a very comfortable stay and couldn't have been happier with our host. We were very close to Chamonix, hiking trails, grocery stores (even a health food store with vegan options!) and we really enjoyed reading on the deck with coffee or wine and taking in the views. We are looking forward to staying here again.

Fantastic! Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous week. The apartment is exactly as pictured and the view even more breathtaking. Breakfast on the terrace every morning was a highlight. The owners are very friendly, welcoming and approachable. We hope to one day return and I would recommend staying here to friends and family without hesitation.

Absolutely wonderful in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights in May, 2014 and we all LOVED it. The chalet is wonderful! The view of the mountains is stunning. I couldn't believe the view would be as wonderful as the photos but actually, it's better.

The chalet is extremely comfortable, stylish, and modern. Very clean and well-maintained. It seems to have been decorated and furnished a bit more since the photos were taken. Also note that the winter photo in the advert must have been taken before the deck was installed so it is a little confusing trying to make sense of the photos. The deck is awesome- we ate meals out there and enjoyed the amazing view and the sunshine.

The kitchen is very well-equipped with everything you need to cook complete meals. We had our first experience here with an induction cooktop which was really amazing. All of the appliances, cookware, dishes, glassware, furniture and bedding appear to be brand new and very high quality. There's a washing machine as well. Also a small stereo system with some great CDs, a nice collection of books (English and French), including kids books in the second bedroom, and some toys, and a drawer full of guide books to the area.

The chalet is just up the hillside from Les Houches which has everything you need (ATM, grocery, bakery, pharmacy, restaurants) and less than 10 minutes from Chamonix. It is peaceful and private.

The owner was great to deal with and since she was out of town when we were there, she had her neighbor (a very nice guy) came to check if we needed anything. The owner lives next door-however- the chalet is very private with its own entrance and covered parking which us under the deck.

An added bonus was visits from the owner's affectionate cat.
