About this listing
A charming and romantic hideaway chalet located in a forest amongst a huddle of mini chalets just a few minutes drive from Chamonix town centre.
Chalet key points:
Mezzanine bed plus sofa bed - sleeps max 4
Romantic location in the forest
Close to town centre
Spacious terrace with BBQ
The rarest of things in any ski resort, a chalet for 2 (although you can fit 4 with 2 on the sofa bed!) If you are looking for a romantic getaway or just a peaceful location to enjoy your mountain retreat then this is the place for you.
The chalet is located in one of the forests of Chamonix, just along from the Aiguille du Midi. There are approximately 10 small chalets grouped together in this wonderful alpine setting.
Following a complete renovation the chalet boasts a fully fitted kitchen, a warm and welcoming lounge/dining area and bathroom with power shower, WC and basin. The king size bed is on a mezzanine above the lounge area and is accessed by a ladder.
For the Spring & Summer guests this chalet has a wonderful terrace with BBQ, a perfect place for brunching, lunching and evening BBQing!
We do recommend a car for this property as it is not on the bus or train circuit. The chalet has a covered parking spot and there are also shared parking places.

Le chalet est comme indiqué dans l'annonce, entouré de sapin, sans bruit de circulation, tout en restant proche de Chamonix centre. Il faut en effet un véhicule.
The cabin is fantastic, better than the photos- small but perfectly formed, romantic and well equipped and very clean and comfortable. I have suggested to Glenn an extra heater for the chilly nights as underfloor heating can be patchy and a reminder would be for tenants to check satellite dish for snow as it can interfere with signal for the TV but overall thoroughly enjoyable experience. A car is definately a must for skiers but the walk into town is easy. Glenn is super efficient and professional. Would definitely consider coming again.
We had a great time. The cabin is the perfect distance from town. You will need a car to stay here though.
La Cabane is a small but absolutely lovely hide-away, really tastefully renovated. It's far enough from the hustle and bustle of Chamonix town centre to feel that you're actually staying in nature, but close enough that you don't feel isolated. Our young family of 4 would definitely consider staying at La Cabane again on our next visit to the Chamonix valley. Many thanks to Glenn for the warm welcome and the hassle-free key exchanges.

About the Host, Glenn
I have been living in Chamonix for 15 years and love it! Great place to live and bring up a family.
I teach skiing and I have been renting out properties since I have been here and now have a range of self catered chalets and apartments that are second to none and all offer facilities you would expect in any quality rental property plus fantastic views and easy access to the lifts and activities around the valley.
