I'm not one for posting reviews, but this chalet and the Location was so fantastic I had too.
So glad we booked our first ski holiday here ! There was 9 of us that stayed, 5 adults and 4 children.
Before arriving at the chalet, the owners Sarah and Richard emailed us some really good info and links for all the local activities, lift pass info, ski areas, restaurants, nearest supermarkets in chamonix and Les houches and also how to get to the chalet from the airport.
When we arrived at the chalet it was situated in a valley which is surrounded by mountains and the views were breathtaking. Upon arrival we received a welcome pack including milk, bread, paste, paste sauce and a bottle of Moët, which was a nice surprise.
The kitchen area was quality it had a American style fridge freezer, coffee machine, all the utensils that you could think of were in this kitchen making it so easy for cooking. There was a breakfast bar which was ideal for the kids to eat in the mornings.
We used the Raclette one night which was a nice simple fun meal for everyone, kids loved it !
Off the kitchen area was the living and dining area all open plan which worked great. Big TV with full sky package, DVD player, playstation, Bose docking station and tons of DVD's and games for the playstation and the log burner was a really nice touch and lovely to have on.
Utility room had washing machine and tumble dryer which came in really handy. Somewhere to hang all your ski clothing, snow boots and somewhere to keep ski equipment.
All the adults stayed on this floor in the 3 double rooms, all these rooms had full Sky TV package, hairdryers, en-suites with baths, which was great after a day on the slopes to have your own space and not scrapping for a bathroom slot !
2 double rooms again with the sky TV and DVD players with 2 bathroom's, the views from these rooms were mind blowing ! In these bedrooms and bathrooms there was sky lights positioned above the beds and also above the baths. Absolutely amazing when it's a clear night sky, you can look up and see the stars !
The Hot tub and sauna was fab extra after a day on the slopes to relax.
Then midway through the week we received a lovely cake sent from the owners.
The chalet have a local management team that is there for your every need. Chris who is part of apex management team was really friendly and helpful and gave us lots of advice about the chalet and info about chamonix and Les houches. He also helped us out with ski hire and booking private ski lessons.
The location of the chalet was fantastic, just situated inbetween chamonix and Les houches about 5 mins drive away. This made everything so easy for us, we hired a car because it was easier with younger children getting the ski equipment to the slopes. However there is a local bus that runs constantly up and down the valley and lots of people were using this.
The chalet views were amazing, and the owners have thought of everything covering every little detail to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Would defiantly recommend and book again.
