Most enjoyable visit to Chamonix, France thanks to Florence and her chalet.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from an incredible visit to Mont Blanc- Chamonix, France where my husband and I had the pleasure to stay in "Florence's chalet." From the minute we booked our reservation, Florence the owner, shared photos of the area with us. Florence greeted us upon arrival with a bottle of wine, candies, homemade jelly and the most delicious homemade tart. The Christmas decorations both inside and out were most inviting. Inside the chalet is decorated most adorably with vintage ski accessories on the walls. The chalet is equipped with every modern convienance needed for a long or short term stay from a dishwasher to Yves DeLormes bath linens. The views from the chalet are breathtaking of Mont Blanc and the surrounding snow covered peaks. Florence herself is a fantastic and most gracious host making our dinner reservations during our stay and providing us with invaluable information concerning area attractions. The town of Chamonix is quite charming with local shops and many restaurants. It was our absolute pleasure visiting Chamonix and staying with Florence in her chalet. Thank you Florence for a fantastic visit.

Owner's Response: Dear Jacqueline, I am so moved by the Review you just posted regarding your stay at 'Chalet Florence' during the Holiday Season. You and Lee have been such wonderful Guests. It was a pleasure to suggest the nicest restaurants at get reservations during New Year days. I am gala you had a great time in Chamonix and at the little chalet, 'Mazot Florence'. You have been fantastic Guests that I early recommend to any home owner who will be fortunate enough to have you over. I would be thrilled greeting you again in this little chalet or one the one next door called 'Chalet Florence' which is a little bit bigger (two floors, for two persons also). If you wish to come back with another couple, the chalets could accommodate four of you. In summer, Chamonix offers a wide range of outdoor activities and many beautiful spots to visit here or around Chamonix. With a short driving distance, you are in Italy (Val d'Aoste, crossing Mont-Blanc tunnel) or in Switzerland (Valais state). The options are endless. in waiting, I wish you both and your two sons and family, a great year, filled with joy and success. Your friend from Chamonix, France Florence

We stayed in Mazot Florence for a week the end of June. I can't say enough kind things about Florence. She just goes above and beyond what is expected. Something leaked in our suitcase and she took the clothes and returned them freshly laundered later that same day. She leaves delicious desserts for you to enjoy. What I enjoyed was the amazing views and absolute quietness of the area. You will find everything you need in the beautiful little chalet. The kitchen had everything you will need and a nice size refrigerator. Loved being able to get channels on TV so we could watch the news in English. I loved the picnic tables outside. I will always be grateful to Florence for all her extra work and kindness. Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: Dear Connie, What an amazing 'Review': thank you so much. It is really thoughtful of you. It has been a real pleasure to welcoming you, Steve and Melissa last June. You have been wonderful Guests that I warmly recommend to any home owner who will have you over. Hope three of you are doing well and wish you all a great fall with the beautiful colors. I would be thrilled to greeting you again in one of the two chalets you know now. You, your family or friends. The two chalets can be rented in the same time. Winter is fantastic too. Dear Connie, I send you all my best wishes. Looking forward to greeting you again in the future. Kindest regards, Florence

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home. We stayed in the little chalet and it was perfect, very comfortable and nicely decorated. It had all the comforts of home in a little package! This property is set at the end of a deadend road and is so quiet, only the birds sing you awake in the morning. The views from the front door are breath taking. Florence the owner of the property is so helpful, she lives on the property but you would never know it unless you have a request. She is a gracious host, providing us with home made jams, wine and yummy pastries. She is a wealth of knowledge having grown up since a child in the area. The property is a short easy walk to downtown Chamonix and bus stops but far enough off the beaten path for peace and tranquility. When not off skiing you can sit on the patio in the sun and take in the magnificent views while sipping wine. This was our 2nd trip to Chamonix but a first at Mazot Florence and we will definitely be back next year. Florence was so helpful as while skiing I fell and broke my clavicle and Florence came right over to the hospital after I arrived there by ambulance and helped us navigate getting stuff at the pharmacy and getting us back to the chalet. Luckily it happened 2 days before we would be heading home. Florence goes above and beyond for her guests. Thank you Florence - Merci Beaucoup!! We will be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Sue and Daryl, Thank you so much for your amazing Review you just posted on HomeAway / VRBO. It is really kind of you. I am really touched. These two weeks you spent at 'Mazot Florence' have been wonderful. You are fantastic Guests that I warmly recommend at any home owner who will welcome you. Thank you for your kindness and the lovely time we spent at Restaurant L'Impossible as well at L'Auberge du Bois Prin. Sue, I am so glad you are recovering as good as possible since you went through clavicule surgery. I send my best get well wishes to you. I hope I will be in a position to ski again, next winter. I would be thrilled to welcoming you again in one of the two chalets. in waiting, I wish you both a wonderful summer season in New Hampshire, enjoying the ocean. Kindest regards from Chamonix, Flo

Spectacular, quiet, comfortable - best place to stay hands down!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is spectacular. It's on a deadend street just an easy short walk to downtown Chamonix and bus stops. The view is amazing right outside your chalet door facing Aiguille du midi on one side and Brevant on the other. We stayed in the small chalet, it is well equipped, clean and tastefully decorated. It has all the comforts of home. The bath is top notch with a beautiful tile shower, the bed is so comfortable, we slept so peacefully and did I mention how quiet it is!! Florence the owner is so kind and helpful, She goes above and beyond to guarantee a perfect holiday when staying at her property. She brought us her home made preserves, yummy pastries and scrumptious chocolates. She can make reservations for you for dinner, massages , you name it Florence can help. She lives on the property but is very considerate of your privacy, you'd never know she was there. From the sunrise to the birds singing to the amazing sunsets this property is hands down the best. When not off skiing we sat reading on the patio in the sun, sipping wine and eating yummy cheese bought at the fantastic farmers market that Chamonix has every Saturday. Thank you Florence, we had a wonderful holiday staying at your beautiful little chalet. We will certainly be back next year. Merci beaucoup!!

Owner's Response: Dear Sue and Daryl, How lovely is your Review: thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness.I am really moved. I enjoyed so so much welcoming you both at 'Mazot Florence'. You are wonderful Guests that I highly and warmly recommend to any home owner who will be fortunate to greeting you both. It was so great to go to the farmers market with you. Thank you so much for your kind invitation to the restaurants L' Impossible and L' Auberge du Bois Prin. It was a very special time spent with dear Guests from New Hampshire. After living in the US, it is so pleasant for me to greet Guests from this beautiful country. After you left, it seemed to empty around here. 'Ficelle', the small white dog, was looking for you around 'Mazot Florence', wondering where you were. The snow is gone in the garden, fine herbs are stating to grow in the organic vegetable garden. Skiing conditions are still good at Lognan, Les Grands-Montets. i am so much looking forward to greeting you again, maybe next spring, for great off post skiing in beautiful Chamonix area. I wish you both a great summer, filled with joy and happiness. Kindest regards, Florence

A Uniquely Beautiful Spot- We will Return!

  • 5 of 5

We enthusiastically recommend staying at Mazot Florence. The photos on VRBO very accurately show the cozy cottage. The Mazot is spotlessly clean and the kitchen is well organized with supplies for cooking. Florence provides a Nespresso coffee maker with a wide variety of coffees. The DVD drawer is filled with movies and music just in case you have a rainy day. The best aspect of the Mazot was Florence herself, our gracious hostess. Florence picked us up from town, showed us around the neighborhood, and introduced us to a wonderful French teacher. Our French lessons in the garden are ones we will always remember. Florence happily shares produce from her garden, and the stone table outside the cottage is perfect for meals with a view of Mont Blanc. Mont Blanc was the first thing we saw each morning when we stepped over the threshold on our way to a hike. The mazot is located in a quiet neighborhood just a short and pleasant walk from town. We did not rent a car and were happy without one. Chamonix is a beautiful city to visit and Mazot Florence is the perfect spot to call home for a week or two in the Alps.

Owner's Response: Dear Regina and Roland, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at 'Mazot Florence'. What wonderful Guests you have been, last month. I warmly recommend you both to any homeowner who will be fortunate to greeting you. I thank you very much for your detailed Review on VRBO. It so really kind of you. I would be great if you had the opportunity to come back skiing next winter. Chamonix offers such a wide variety of winter sports activities and beautiful snowy sites to visit. Who knows: we might go skiing together one day! In waiting, I wish you a pleasant life in your new relocation. I will be thinking of you, wishing you all the best. Your friend from:Chamonix Florence

Perfect Holiday Base

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect base for our week in Chamonix and hope to return soon. Although it seemed small at first, we found that this beautiful little house had everything we needed. A well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed and tidy little bathroom with a welcome high quality shower, wifi and room for the dog bed. We ate outside all of the time and were generously hosted by Florence who lent us her gas barbeque and garden. Our little dog was very happy and soon regarded this as a home from home. Perhaps, if the weather had been less kind, we would have preferred to be in Florence's other property across the garden but we found it perfect. You are a short walk from the Chamonic pedestrian zone with its shops and restaurants, and perfectly placed to take advantage of the valley. From the graden you can look up to the paragliders and wingsuit flyers off Brevant whilst the other direct has views of the Aiguille de Midi and :Les Boissons glacier. Highly recommended!
