Room with THE view in lovely chalet

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Route des Moussoux, Chamonix, Rhone-Alpes 74400, France

The Space

Spacious airy bedroom with south facing balcony and spectacular views of the Mont Blanc range in beautiful family chalet. Large ensuite WC and walk-in shower. Tea and coffee making facilities in room.
The chalet sits in a field - sometimes a snowy sledging slope, sometimes a flowery meadow, sometimes a hayfield - the wild deer love it. We built the chalet with big timbers, big windows; full of light and space. Calm and peaceful, it is set on the south facing hillside overlooking Chamonix town, with its innumerable shops, restaurants, bars, museums, galleries and the cinema - just 5 minutes walk down to the centre (perhaps 8 minutes back up the hill...). Right near the Brevent lift station, for fabulous alpine walking or brilliant sunny skiing.
Directly facing us on the other side of the valley the cable car soars to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi and the infamous arete leading to the Vallée Blanche, or with the telescope you can watch climbers or ski-mountaineers on Mont Blanc itself.
In the evenings the light on the mountains is extraordinary: Mont Blanc turns gently red, the Dru bursts into flames

  • Very cosy appartment with indeed a beautiful view. the weather was foggy, therefore we did not enjoy it to its full potential. Jan is very friendly. There is only 1 appartment, making it exclusive. a nice window in the roof gives you a view on the sky (with stars or snow or fog). Very nice shower.

  • Jan was a wonderful host. Always available to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. She also helps us to find good restaurants.

    The room was cosy and spacious with a superb view of the Mont Blanc mountain.

    Thank you Jan for your hospitality.

  • A very warm, cosy and beautiful place. We were already in contact with Jan (the host) before we arrived and we felt very welcome. She was very helpful and the place the offers is unique, definitely a place with THE view. For sure we will come back!

  • Coming to Europe for the first time we knew we had to see the Alps. We picked Chamonix and then decided to go for AirBnB over a hotel and weren't disappointed. Jan shared a wonderful room with us which had terrific views of the mountains and great facilities.

  • We found Jan's home lovely, perched on the mountainside overlooking a meadow and the town of chamonix with views up and down the valley. Jan was extremely welcoming and had tons of local knowledge for stuff to do and the best places to check out. Wonderful timber frame chalet with a deck and right beside one of the gondolas. It was a window into the chamonix lifestyle and we did not want to leave, but we will be back again.

  • Jan is the perfect host. She was there to meet us when we arrived, gave us some fresh milk for our morning coffee which by the way can be enjoyed on the balcony with a beautiful view of Mont Blanc. Located in the nice end of Chamonix with easy access to everything

About
I came to Chamonix many many years ago and never really left. We moved here permanently 24 years ago and built this chalet in 2000. My children grew up here as free spirits and have now flown the nest, hence spare bedrooms in this beautiful home that I rent out from time to time. I love the mountains on foot, on skis or on my bike. I love trips away (in the past year Ladakh, Crete, Scotland, Corsica and Canada), but love coming home to Chamonix. So, it would be a great pleasure to share it with you...
