Great for summer or winter! Located in a quiet part of Chamonix, it's a short walk into town to enjoy numerous pubs and restaurants. In winter guests can cozy up to a wood fireplace, and in summer the garden is perfect to relax in the sun.
The apartment is set up for a relaxing and comfortable holiday, with 2 bedrooms, open plan living room/kitchen and private garden with a view of the mountains.
The apartment has:
- a private garden
- Wireless internet
- wood fireplace
- TV and DVD
- sofa bed in the living room
- Bed and bath linens
- a private ski locker
- washing machine (also access to communal laundry with dryer)
- fully fitted kitchen (fridge/freezer, oven, dishwasher, stove top with 4 hobs, and all the essential appliances and cutlery needed to cook at home).
The apartment is in the Les Gailland area, which is roughly 800m from the center of Chamonix. Nearby are Gailland's lake and it's famous climbing wall, as well as various bars and restaurants.
Just over the road the Vert Hotel has a ski rental shop where you can also purchase lift passes for the area (whilst avoiding the queues in town!).
The apartment has a private underground parking for one vehicle, and use of communal parking spaces outside.
Access to the pistes is easy, you can either take the free ski bus from the end of the driveway, or the train from Les Pelerins train station which is roughly 100m from the apartment. Walking time into town (not in ski boots!) is about 20 minutes.
There are many companies (Chamexpress, Alpybus) offering transfers from Geneva airport (1 hour away) to Chamonix. Please contact them for details.
Other Things to Note
2 night minimum stay, with 7 night minimum in winter and peak summer months.
Wir wohnten zu viert in diesem Appartement, wofür die Größe optimal war.
Wir genossen die offene Küche für das gemeinschaftliche abendliche Kochen, ebenso wie den Kamin im gemütlichen Wohnzimmer.
Wir freuten uns sehr über Gesellschaftsspiele (Granium, Karten,...), welche in der Wohnung zur Verfügung standen.
Die Nachbarn waren sehr ruhig und freundlich. Auch ein Fußweg ins Stadtzentrum beträgt ca. 15 min. Der Skibus fährt nahezu direkt vor der Tür ab, allerdings ist es komfortabler mit dem Auto in die Skigebiete zu fahren, da die Busse in der Hauptsaison sehr voll sind.
Ski kann man sich im Hotel "Vert" leihen.Sie sind sehr freundlich und haben gute Preise.
Wir hatten eine sehr erholsame Zeit und können dieses Appartement für einen gemütlichen Urlaub wärmstens empfehlen.
Lovely nest far enough away from the action of Chamonix to be quiet. Good views of the mountains. Equipped with everything needed. Wood fire is easily the best way to heat up the apartment.
We really enjoyed our 3 week stay here, it is in a quieter area of Chamonix but a short 20 minute walk to the main town center with good train and bus access also. Great access to the trails, and some nice lakes nearby. Dan and Nicole were great hosts, really responsive and made sure that we had everything that we needed.
Nous avons passé une semaine en été dans l'appartement de Dan et Nicole. L'appartement est très bien décoré, très pratique (au rez de chaussé) sans vis à vis avec une terrasse très agréable. Nous avons pu aller au centre ville à pied (20mn) sans problème. Les départs de certaines balades peuvent se faire sans prendre la voiture. La place de parking souterrain est appréciable.
Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de cette semaine.
We had a great time at Dan and Nicole's place. There was plenty of space for the four of us, we loved the views from the patio, and the well-equipped kitchen helped us do lots of cooking. The condo is in a perfect location--away from the hubbub of the center of town and right by a bus stop to make it easy to get to all the cable cars and other sites. We definitely recommend this place to other travelers.
What a fabulous stay in Chamonix. Thank you Nicole and Dan. The apartment is well equipped, cosy and in a terrific location. An easy walk/run into town and the views of the mountains are great. Our kids loved the fireplace (so did we in 8 degree temps!). We would definitely recommend this place and stay here again.
This apartment was very clean and very comfortable and nicely decorated. It was in a quiet neighborhood. Also appreciated it being a ground floor unit which made accessibility easy. Also washer and dryer were very conveniently located in the basement/garage area. Book of instructions and helpful ideas was also provided. The only things that we're NOT provided were things like toilet paper, hand towels and wash cloths, salt/pepper, and paper towels/Kleenex.
We are a young professional couple who have been living in Geneva since 2010. We have spent a lot of time up in Chamonix in recent years, have fallen in love with the area, hence have bought a gorgeous little apartment there.
We hope to rent out our flat to people who are looking to discover the alps during a ski holiday or climbing and hiking summer adventure.
