a very cozy and newly-renovated apartment with its own little kitchen and bathroom. You can leave your car just behind front door or choose another parking lot near the street. Chamonix is a lovely town with good skiing areas, cosy restaurants and nice bars, all just a stone away from Mollies place. Mollie (& Trevor) are very welcoming and friendly hosts, which responded quickly to our queries and provided us with useful and very helpful information about the area. Its worth spending your holidays in this lovely place. Thanx Mollie & Trevor!
We had a very friendly welcome from Mollie and it was a delight to meet her. We enjoyed our stay in her authentic Alpine garden apartment. A great spot for wandering into Chamonix.
Nice apartment in a quiet location, walking distance into Cham, plenty of parking and easy to find. Newly refurbished and nice and clean! Would recomend and you get a lot for your money! What's also nice is the owners live next door so handy incase there are any problems of which there were none.
We had a great time at Petite Maison Balmat, Mollie and Trefor are great hosts. The apartment is newly renovated and perfect for a couple visiting Chamonix. We were very happy with everything!
The apartment is about 20 minutes from Chamonix town but the bus that runs into town is only 100m from the apartment. Also, all the buses are free in Chamonix so that makes it super easy to explore the valley from there.
Mollie and Trefor were super helpful throughout our stay and left lots of nice gestures throughout the apartment to help us celebrate our honeymoon.
We highly recommend staying here if you're visiting Chamonix and couldn't speak higher of our stay!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at Mollie's flat. We arrived late, 9pm, and Mollie's partner, Trefor, was the one to greet us. He also gave us a pub recommendation that was a 10-15 minute walk. Check out was easy. The apartment was clean and simple, a perfect spot to stay while doing day hikes. NB it's a twenty minute walk into town but the bus stop is steps away. The buses are free and on time.
El apartamento esta muy bien preparado para una estancia cómoda, salvo la cama. La cama es un sofa-cama con un colchón demasiado delgado para poder descansar bien. El recibimiento y el trato fueron muy agradables así como las indicaciones sobre la ciudad y sus restaurantes y bares.
Muchas gracias por sus comentarios útiles Marta. Desde entonces, hemos comprado una cama nueva marca de Inglaterra que puede ser un doble o dos individuales. Las disculpas que no ha visitado durante su estancia! Me alegro de que haya disfrutado de todo lo demás, aunque y que te gustó Chamonix! Happy Travels, Mollie x
Dès mon arrivée, j'ai eu un super accueil. Mollie est très gentille ! Coté appartement les photos correspondent vraiment a la réalité !
L'appartement est équipé du nécessaire dont on a besoins et si il manque quelques choses, Mollie n'est pas loin ! ;-)
About the Host, Mollie
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.
