With it's own private entrance, this apartment is within the Original Balmat 1700's family home (Jaques Balmat was the first person to climb Mont Blanc). The light filled modern basement traps the sun and keeps it cosy or cool depending on the season.

We can arrange your transfers from Geneva to Chamonix. We will then meet and greet you upon arrival to show you around the apartment after which you have a fully private, self contained accommodation.

Far enough away from the high season crowds but close enough to dip in and out, Les Pelerins is surrounded by beautiful woods,short and long hikes, The Arve and stunning mountain landscape.

Walking distance to a few bars and restaurants or Chamonix centre, you will have a chance to take in the stunning views and alpine air. A five minute drive to Mont Blanc tunnel, Italy is also on your doorstep!

The public bus stop is right outside that will take you straight to the slopes or town centre. There is also a train at the end of the street or it's an easy 20 minute walk into town. Unlimited Bus and train travel is free in the valley with a 'carte d'hote' which we can give you.

Kitchen has a 4 ring hob, Dishwasher and Microwave. Bedroom has DVD & USB player - soon to be UK TV too!

Mollie communicated clearly and promptly. I met her, her child, and dog in person, they are all lovely! Mollie made our entire trip smooth and fun. She gave us really good recommendations for ski/snowboard rental and helped organize our transportation from Geneva Airport to the Airbnb. Instructions for check-in/check-out is straightforward and easy. The Airbnb itself is super cozy and is perfect for those who are planning to spend most of their time outside of the apartment. The shower head is like a nice mild massage, which is perfect after a long day of snowboarding. It was absolutely divine! As mentioned in other user reviews, the Airbnb is approximately ~20 minutes away (walking) from city center where you'll find a variety of bars/restaurants/shopping. The bus to Chamonix center/transfers to mountains is just across the street, 2 minute walk from the Airbnb. The buses stop running around 8 PM, so you'll need to walk back if you plan to have a late night out.

We had a great stay, the apartment was clean and warm and had everything we needed. The bus stop was just round the corner so getting into and back from town was easy and if you had to walk back later at night the walk was just a straight road back. We would definitely stay again!

My husband and I had a really lovely stay at Mollie's place. Mollie was extremely hospitable, showed us round the apartment and gave us all of the information that we wanted, she couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment is great, very simply and freshly decorated and has real character. It was about a 20 minute walk into the centre of Chamonix which we really enjoyed or you can pick up the free bus only a few metres from the apartment. Thanks for a great stay, we hope to be back.

We had a wonderful time at Mollie's place! The accommodation is like a cosy igloo, warm, comfortable and only a 10-15min walk to town. We appreciated all the small touches, milk in the fridge, Nespresso pods, DVDs and board games. A little tip though, if you play Trivia Pursuit, it's the Australian version and it's at Genius level, it only took us an hour to realise why we were struggling so much. Thanks again for everything!

A great little cozy apartment. Easy to get to and plenty of parking. We walked into Chamonix most evenings- a lovely stroll under the mountains. Everything you need and lovely hot shower- perfect after the days skiing. Mollie was flexible with us on check in and super helpful. Recommended

Coming from Sydney Australia, Chamonix could not have been a bigger contrast. Alas, the mountains have got charm! I am a singer here, in and around Chamonix and also like to pretend I can snowboard! This is an inspiring and stunning place to live and I would love you too to have a chance to experience it.
Chamonix is known for its Winters, but actually Spring and Summer here is pretty special. The array of wildflowers dotting the valley is gorgeous and can be seen from pretty much any short stroll or long hike. Chamonix valley is accessible on foot, public transport or by car depending on your preferences. If there's anything at all you'd like to know, feel free to get in touch.
Cheers, Mollie.
