The Chamonix valley is one of the most iconic mountain areas in the world! Fabulous at any time of year, there is always something to do: skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing, walking, eating, enjoying the scenery and much else besides.
Our apartment is in Les Houches, 4 miles from Chamonix centre, so is much quieter but is in a great area for walking. It is a bright and airy second floor studio with SW facing balcony with lovely views from the windows and balcony. There are excellent restaurants, the tourist information centre, a seasonal cinema and an excellent supermarket all within 200m. It is also 2 mins from the bus stop and 7 mins from the railway station on foot for travel in the Chamonix valley.
It sleeps up to 3 in a double bed settee in the living room and 2 bunk beds in a bed alcove, ie there is a reasonable amount of privacy between the two sleeping areas. But it is only a studio so is more comfortable for 2! There is a bathroom with bath, shower, WC and washing machine. The multi functional living room has a bedsettee, kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen has a fridge, ceramic hob, kettle, toaster and all cooking equipment. Also raclette set and slow cooker. There is a fold down dining table and 4 chairs. There is also ski storage downstairs.
The flat contains original photographs and artwork. Local information, maps and guidebooks are supplied. Rental of the flat includes bedlinen, 4 towels, heating, HD TV and high speed secure wifi, as well as use of the new washing machine. There is free parking 200m away in the sports centre.
