We adore Chamonix Mont Blanc - it is our retreat in the mountains and we hope you will treat it with adoration too. We therefore have 5 strict rules we would like you to follow..
(1) Please take your shoes and ski boots off at the door and leave them on the racks provided. The floor boards feel better in bare feet or socks!
(2) Please be respectful of our neighbours - we like them, and want to keep it that way.
(3) We really don't like smoking, so please do not do it. Don't even do it if you hang out the window or on the balcony, please!
(4) With people coming in and out, something might not work, or you might accidentally break or damage something - please just let us know so we can repair or replace it.
(5) Have an amazing time - Enjoy Chamonix, it is simply heaven on earth!
Also, since we live in Singapore, our friends, Nick and Jo Saw are your hosts during your stay - you can contact Nick on mobile ph(phone number hidden)
My husband and daughter stayed here for my daughter's first weekend of skiing. They had an absolutely wonderful time! James was communicative from the outset and then the admin was taken over by the management company who were exceptionally helpful and arranged ski hire, private classes etc. The apartment was fantastic and the location just wonderful. Thank you very much to James and Chloe and we hope we may be able to stay again.
Great location, great flat!
My friends and I stayed here for a long weekend of skiing and found the flat in perfect condition and the ideal base for us. It's walking distance from both the slopes, dining and bars for the apres-ski.
We had no issues what so ever with clear instructions left by the hosts.
We had a great stay in the apartment! It was absolutely perfect! It is very spacious and exactly how it looks in the photos. We couldn't of asked for a better location and would defiantly recommend this place to friends. Thanks for having us!
Great apartment! Great location, just a few minutes away from the city centre. And if your kids are going to ESF, this is probably one of the most central location you can find in Chamonix.
Peaceful and quiet, neatly decorated, and everything well explained. What's more,the hosts were very helpful prior to our stay.
I strongly recommend!
I had a great experience at Wingello. Well appointed apartment in a wonderful location. The local hosts looked after us and James & Chloe provided useful tips for the area.
I would really recommend it for 3-4 adults or a couple with young kids.
Great apartment, exactly as we expected. Chloe and James, and the management company, made everything very easy for us. Plenty of space for the four of us. Location was perfect, easy access to slopes and town. We will definitely be back, probably again later this season.
