We were lucky and got upgraded from the studio to the 1 bedroom apartment. Apartment is very nicely done, with lots of wood. Good balcony to enjoy the afternoon sun, Note: apartment doesn't have a real oven, just a microwave with 'crisp' function. Swimming pool is nice, with a view on the mountains, water is just a bit on the... More

Went at Easter for a ski trip - 3 families all with children. We have previously stayed across the road at the Residence Spa Vallorcine. L'ours Bleu costs about the same - but it comes a poor second. The rooms - my one bedroom apartment was a decent size. The furnishings had clearly seen better days. The TV was only... More

Where praise is due it should be shared, especially when choosing accommodation for our precious time away, we all want to choose according to our requirements and have a positive experience rather than a miserable time. I hope this helps other travellers in making their decision, especially if travelling with family, children and pets, as this all attracts specific requirements.... More

We visited these apartments about four years ago and some things have changed (for the better), the restaurant now serves pizza and is much busier at lunchtime too! We booked the New Year's Eve meal this year, it had a good menu. As for reception, they have been great, we could check in early and get everything sorted, and then... More

Clean, modern apartments that are well equipped and the ski lift is right next door to the complex. Ski lockers could be a bit bigger! Free Wi-Fi available in the apartments. There is a pool but didn't use it so can't comment. Reception seem a little unhelpful and disinterested. Vallorcine is a great resort for families but for those seeking... More

Pros: Apartments furnished to a high standard. Kitchens are excellent. Flats are quiet. Accommodating if you are with children - you can book highchairs and cots n stuff. Free covered parking Close to lifts Cons: Could be friendlier - my friend asked about leaving bags and before she was finished was told NO, but on closer questioning they are quite... More

We stayed here, for the first time, for one week at the end of January 2013. The residence is not a hotel but it is hotel-style. We stayed in a two room appartment; with good sized bedroom with excellent en suite bath/shower plus the main room which had a kitchenette, dining area and lounge area. It was very well furnished...

This residence has its pros and cons but I decided to give it a very good mark despite some drawbacks. In summary, we enjoyed our stay at a three bedroom duplex with an amazing view of the Alps. It was our first time staying in a residence type resort, so we were surprised by things such as lack of basic... More

As a frequent visitor to the Chamonix Valley and having seen the construction of this relatively new residence completed in approx 2008, I was keen to give it a go. I visited with my 2 young children and was highly impressed with the quality of the accommodation and friendliness of the staff. We booked a 2 bedded apartment and were... More

This place deserves a story of its own... We came down in Vallorcine being thirsty and hungry. Passed a place with louds of people and settled for another place with tables in the sun... After like ten minutes we were looking for some attention (ugly as we are) but failed (accordingly). After another ten minutes I got fed up and... More
