We were 2 French families (4 adults + 8 kids ranging 5 to 18 + 1 nanny) staying at Chalet Kandahar in mid-August 2018.
General location is very convenient in the middle of Chamonix valley close (3 min walk) to Les Houches Bellevue lift and less than 10 mins drive from Chamonix Aiguille du Midi lift and city center. A few shops and restaurants are only at a 3 min-walk away from the chalet. The surroundings could be misperceived due to the road, a mini-farm and the camping nearby but noise isolation is very good.
The chalet itself is gorgeous, with LOTS of rooms and space. The living room, dining room and kitchen are wonderful and did accomodate up to 15 of us (we had visitors over the weekend) with great comfort.
The decoration and style are very pleasant with a mix of wood, in line with chalets in the French Alps and modern and fully operating technologies (WiFi, Netflix, kitchen appliances...).
Rooms are lovely. Each of them with their own en suite shower and WC (not separated) except in the "dormitory" on ground floor.
To crown it all, not one but a few elements :
1/ Outisde jaccuzi: we loved it after our hikes in the mountain, probably a great indulgence and experience after your ski ride in the winter
2/ Sauna: same as above. Design is great and pays respect to the owners' style and attention to details
3/ Photobook on the chalet construction adds a nice personal touch
4/ Appliances to heat your (ski/hiking) boots
5/ Kitchen appliances with 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers and PLENTY of tableware
6/ Inventory and supplies: after paying the rent for the chalet I appreaciate walking in and finding soap, some pasta, oïl, salt, pepper, sugar, WC rolls, trash bags... It makes you feel that the owners are welcoming. Obviously, we did our own grocery shopping, left some of our surplus / supplies for the next tenant
