Why Mont Blanc Retreats chose Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
Amazing views | Huge balcony | Ski bus outside | Le Vert Hotel opposite for food, beer and good times | Parking
Well equipped apartment, clean and tidy. The view and outside space is amazing! Loved sitting out in the evening and enjoying the view.
Had a car issue when we were there and the lady managing this apartment was very helpful even though it wasn’t really a problem with the apartment.
The only negative was we were a family of 4, the second bedroom which had two single beds in it pretty small and has a window with no blind or curtain onto the dining room. Meant our teenage daughter didn’t have much privacy and used our bedroom to get changed. The bathroom also has a large window looking out onto some flats also without any curtains so you felt quite exposed! Only a small thing but a couple of blinds would make such a difference. Definitely book again though!
Thanks for the feedback on the blinds. We will get some installed.
Hope to see you again in Chamonix.

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.
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.
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!
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.
