The property was perfect in size for our group of 7kids and 4 adults with regards to sleeping and all eating together at meal times.

So good!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice chalet with a great view. Perfect location at walking distance from village shops and transportation means (train and shuttles) to neighbouring resorts. Wide kitchen and living room for the family. Nothing is missing, most convenient for after ski logistics with outdoor direct access. Nice terrace. Comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. We felt at home!

Le chalet offre une vue magnifique par ses grandes baies. De bons moments familiaux et amicaux assurés : un salon lumineux et cosy, un espace de vie spacieux, une cuisine ouverte moderne et parfaitement équipée.

Un besoin de s’isoler : vous appréciez le confort et la décoration des chambres. Et au retour de ski, un peu encombrés: le vaste demi sous sol vous permet en quelques secondes de tout ranger. Un moment pour bronzer et vous voici sur la terrasse de plain-pied, ensoleillée.

Bref, les vacances furent réussies. Bravo et Merci.

Comme la Maison

  • 4 of 5

Fin février, nous avons passé une très bonne semaine de ski (malgré une météo pas toujours excellente) à 3 familles. Le chalet est tout confort. La vue est splendide. Il est proche du village et à 2 pas du plus beau des domaines skiables de la vallée : les Grands Montets. Une mention particulière pour la gentillesse du propriétaire François ainsi que pour l'excellent accueil sur place de Clotilde.

The chalet is exceptionally well located, facing the Mont Blanc, close to the old village of Argentière. on the road and railways linking Chamonix and Switzerland.

The nearest Chamonix bus stop is at a walking distance ( 0,6 miles)

The Train du Mt Blanc links Le Fayet to Martigny (Switzerland) with a railways station in Argentière ( 0,7 miles)
