Apartment Gaillands North is a spacious, two-bedroom apartment of the roof-top with a massive south-facing terrace that looks straight up on Mont Blanc and Aiguille de Midi. It has arguably THE best views in the Chamonix valley. At night you can watch climbers making their way to the summit by head torch and in the day sunbath in privacy as there are no other buildings looking on to your space.
This apartment was refurbished in Nov 2013 and has a huge, wooden-floored living room with a dining table, sofa bed, TV and wood-fired stove with built in pizza oven.
The two bedrooms are both doubles and combined with the sofa bed and single bed in the huge lounge the apartment sleeps up to seven if required.
A fully equipped kitchen with a bathroom with a bath and shower finish off this beautiful apartment that, for its outstanding views and position, remains one of our most popular in the Chamonix valley.
Gaillands North apartment is a flat and easy 10-minute walk from Chamonix town centre, but the ski bus stops right outside to take you the three stops in.
There is a garage and plenty of off road parking dedicated to the apartment block and the popular and lively Le Vert Hotel is just across the road for nights out and food, if you don’t fancy cooking.

Very spacious and well thought out.
They weren’t exaggerating when they said this apartment has the best view of the Chamonix Valley from the massive roof top terrace – absolutely stunning. I don’t think the photos really show how spacious it is.
It was clean and well maintained. It was obvious that the owners of the apartment had actually stayed there themselves as everything worked and was well thought out. I’ve stayed in many apartments where there quite simply isn’t enough space. You could live quite comfortably in this apartment. The beds were comfortable and there was space to hang cloths.
For once there was good quality bedding and towels. When you arrive by plane, no bedding or paper bedding which seems to the norm in French ski accommodation these days is just so not acceptable, and as for having to take home damp towels in your luggage...The bedding and towels
provided for us were therefore much appreciated and made the apartment look homely as soon as we walked in.
The kitchen was big enough and well equipped to cook proper meals. Having stayed in French ski apartments where they can't even be bothered to provide the basics like a cork screw, scissors or matching wine glasses it was great to find everything provided. The bathroom had enough space to move and have a nice soak in the bath after a big day out. For once in a French ski apartment I didn’t feel like a sardine.
Well done, we’re saving up already for our next holiday with you.
Wonderful location the highlight being the massive sun terrace. Very comfortable. The only fault is that it could do with a really good clean . Cobwebs on ceiling and the cooker hood was filthy. We would definitely return.
We were gutted to hear that the apartment wasn't clean enough and we have asked the staff responsible to go back and give it a deep clean. Had you let us know about these issues we would have sent the cleaners straight round to re-clean the apartment.
I'm really glad to read that the cobwebs and cooker hob did not distract from your holiday experience too much and you would rebook. I hope you do, as we would like the opportunity to see how the apartment is developing.
Thanks for staying and reviewing.
Chamonix Les Gaillands Penthouse apt
We had a great time and the apt. was very convenient to town and areas for walking the dogs. There is a small lake next door and trails across the street that were perfect. Very clean and well maintained. Had no issues and arrived with a very clean apt. ready for vacationing. A cute little bar across the street which has good food and drinks, Hotel Vert. Would certainly stay here again.
Nice apartment, outstanding views of Mt Blanc and the Chamonix valley
A pleasant apartment with fantastic views, we made good use of the owners high power binoculars to admire the scenery from the sun loungers on the large balcony.
Thanks for the great review and it is great to hear that the binoculars are getting used. :)
Amazing views from this apartment!
Our stay at this apartment was outstanding! The views from the rooftop deck were fabulous. Close to town and with the Côte card, was able to ride the train as many times as you want. Be aware, however, that you must exit the train before the last stop or you will be charged a fare! You can always hop back on when the next train comes. We did not and ended up paying 27 euros for about a mile trip. The apartment has everything you need, very neat and tidy. You will not regret your stay!
Amazing penthouse with beautiful view
We have spent in penthouse three amazing weeks. It is really comfortable for 6 persons. Beautiful balcony with amazing view on Mont Blanc - perfect place for bbq and chilling after ski.
Appartment is beautifull, comfortable, very clean and well decorated, there is everything you need for perfect stay.
Location of the appartment is really the best - free parking near the house, bus stop in 1 min walk, center is in 10 mins walk - very quiet place.
Bob is very helpful - helped me to organize our vacation long before our arrival and asked all questions during our stay.
I will stay again :)
Thank you Bob and Mont Blanc Retreats!
Thanks! We agree, Gaillands North is a fantastic and unique apartment!
We do all we can to make sure all our guests have a fantastic time. We organise ski hire, passes and lessons if you need them and we are always on hand to sort any problems out you might have when you are staying.
Bob Drury - Mont Blanc Retreats
Chamonix is both a world famous adventure sports mecca attracting skiers, snowboarders, climbers, paragliders and mountain bikers from around the world.
Situated at the foot of Mont Blanc, the highest point in western Europe, Chamonix is a thriving town with plenty to do for everyone. Chamonix high street sports fantastic bars, restaurants and shops and the town is just as frequented by sightseers and tourists keen to gaze up at some of Europe's most dramatic landscapes as it is by hardcore mountain enthusiasts.
Gaillands North is situated right at the end of the high street allowing you to walk into the heart of Chamonix in just a couple of minutes.
Skiing can be reached on foot or via the free bus service that circulates the valley linking the ski resorts of Le Tour, Grand Montets, La Flegere, Brevent and Les Houches.
