Remodeled from a Swedish restaurant called Le Viking in 1990, the Studio is furnished in a French style with Scandinavian quality. The location cannot get any better with ski-in/out access to the largest ski area in Europe, Les Grands Montets!

The space

Our 2 listed units can accommodate up to 9 people so for larger parties (or if you would like more space) we can connect the private corridor between the "studio" and the "apartment" to create a combined space.
The 19 sq. meters in the Studio includes:
- Convertible bed options into 1 double/1 single or 3 singles
- All beds can convert into comfortable couches
- Flat screen TV (French) with SVT-World (Swedish) & DVD player
- Dining area with a view of the ski slopes
- Furnished, functional kitchen (fridge, electric stove, microwave)
- Clean, stocked bathroom with shower, toilet, sink & towel-dryer heater
- Ski Storage inside Studio

Guest access

Ground level entrance to the studio from the bottom of Grands Montets ski slope

Interaction with guests

If we are in Chamonix during your stay (most winter months), we will be staying in the same building as you and enjoy getting to know our guests. We are available for anything you need. If we are out of town, we will have one of our cleaners available.

This is a great little apartment, perfect for using as a base for hiking (or skiing I imagine, although we didn't do that as we stayed in August!). It is cosy but me, my husband and our 10 week old baby didn't feel cramped in it due to the brilliant use of space. There is lots of starage space, it's clean and the location is fantastic. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Our local host in summer when when we are in Sweden, who has a long experience behind the counter in hotels in the walley told us that Becky and Gorf with their baby was a very nice couple, and left the studio in perfect order, so we can highly recommend them as guests.

This was a cozy, tidy apartment with a great location. The supermarket, restaurants, and train station were just around the corner, making living easy and going out and outdoors very accessible. Special mention for the kitchen utensils, which were in excellent condition!

This appartment was small but good for two people and well located for public transport links , the Montets lift and local shops. The internet conection was good. The appartment was clean and tidy with a good shower ( perfect after a day in the mountains ). We enjoyed our stay.

The location is absolutely amazing! The studio is cosy and comfortable and feels like a friends place rather than a soulless rental property. The studio had everything you could need but what really makes it is the location and the friendliness of the hosts who were an absolute pleasure. The only improvement I could suggest would be a slightly shorter wifi password! We loved our stay and hope to return!

Lena And Anders were communicative and helpful throughout. We arrived late and they made the process very easy. The flat is cozy for 3 but well equipped and a great location for skiing.

The accomodation is LITERALLY in front of the ski lift. The studio was perfect, nice and warm, quiet with a well equipped kitchen. It is also quiet and there great views of the mountain range from the dining room table. Argentiere is a nice neighbourhood, more relaxed than Chamonix and still lively (there are a few pubs, restaurants and cafes to choose from). The supermarket is a 10 - 15 minute walk away, which was convenient. Lena and Anders are lovely hosts with great knowledge of the area and plenty of interesting stories. They made me feel quite welcome and went out of their way to help me when I injured myself skiing! I will certainly be a return visitor!

The issue I had with this studio may seem trivial, however it was important to me and essential for my stay. I needed the internet connection in order to do some work, and studio was supposed to have it (this was one of most important aspects during selection of accommodation by me). The internet however was not there, and the contact with Lena via text messages was none. I had to leave the place earlier then planned asking for reimbursement for the nights I did not stay in the flat. Lena however declined my request (which I simply think is irresponsible and disrespectful towards the guest). If I am supposed to pay for the service, the service should be as advertised. I find the contact with hosts very poor, I would have made better move by choosing the hotel where I can contact staff directly. That was definitely the worse airbnb experience so far for me

Response from Lena & Anders:
Dear Paulina, I am sorry to hear that booking my apartment was your worse airbnb experience. The wifi worked just fine before your arrival, unfortunately it did not work for a couple of days after. As you already know, I was away during your stay with no mobile connection or Wifi, but Liana, our local host was there to meet you and help you with any questions you may have. She did her best in this matter by coming to check wifi and reset it at least 3 times. After the weekend we solved the issue immediately. I am deeply sorry it all ended this way for both of us.

We are a retired couple from Sweden and have lived in the Chamonix valley since 1986. Our passions for skiing & cross-country skiing brought us to buy Le Viking restaurant after it closed and convert it into our home. We love the mountains and have been spending our winters here in Argentiere for 30 years with our daughters & grandchildren. We live next-door to our rented Studio & Apartment and enjoy getting to know our guests. We hope to have the opportunity to meet you on your travels! A bientôt
