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.

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!

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough nice things about our stay in Florence’s chalet. From the time we arrived until we left, Florence made sure that everything was taken care of. The chalet was beautifully furnished and had views of Mont Blanc that are out of this world. We had considered several other places before choosing this one and are so glad we did. In the evenings, its very quiet and away from the noise of downtown Chamonix. However, the shops/restaurants in Chamonix are just a short walk away, which we walked to nearly everyday. The hiking nearby was challenging and offered great views of alps.

Look no further if you want a quaint, quiet, little chalet with wonderful views and an amazing hostess. Florence truly took care of everything. We were even fortunate enough to share dinner with her one evening, which was very enjoyable to hear more about the history of Chamonix and her chalets.

I hope that we’ll be able to visit Chamonix again and if we do, we’ll definitely be staying in this chalet again!

Owner's Response: Dear Erin and Philip, It has been such a pleasure to have known you both and having you at 'Chalet Florence' for a week, enjoying Chamonix and its beautiful hiking and alpine panoramas ! How kind is your Review. I am really moved and thank you very much for your appreciation. You have been wonderful Guests I highly recommend to any home owner who will have the pleasure to greeting you one day. I thank you very much also for your kind diner invitation at Restaurant L'Impossible. We had then the opportunity to talk about Chamonix, its history, and so on. A very special time with a very special young couple fro North Carolina, in the US. As discussed, if Philip is interested to climb Mont-Blanc, I will email you all the information. You will need then a two or three weeks here to just yourselves with altitude before the ascent of Mont-Blanc. In winter, Chamonix offers a wide variety of ski slopes with stunning views. At night, you will see the deer coming for 'diner' right in front of the windows. Magical to watch these wild big animals from so close. I wish you and your families a lovely summer. Looking forward to -maybe- greeting you, your family or friends at one of the two chalets. It will be so enjoyable to welcome you again one day. Kindly, Florence

A Fairy Tale

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvellous time at Mazot Florence.

Florence is a gracious host who pays very good attention to her guests. She picked us up and delivered us to the train station which was very helpful. Staying at the little chalet is like walking into a fairytale. The gardens are immaculate filled with colourful flowers which is very nice to look out on.

The chalet is perfectly fitted out with everything one needs for a comfortable vacation,including a great kitchen.

We loved the welcoming wine,flowers,chocolates and big box of macaroons! The Nespresso maker ,with a variety of coffee choices was great. The location is quiet so sleeping well is easy.

Also, having the use of the laundry room was good.

Of course, the best element is the view. Walk out the chalet door and there is Mt. Blanc and the beautiful mountain range. It is a stunning view and this chalet must be one of the best located in Chamonix. A short walk and one is in town.

There are many options for hikes and Wilkes in the Chamonix valley and Florence has lots of material and ideas to share.

Staying here was a real treat and so much more enjoyable than a hotel room because of the beautiful interior of the chalet, the gardens, view and personal attention of Florence.
