myself and girlfriend went to chamonix at easter for the late snowfall and booked three nights at the chalet. The bus stop right outside made getting to the slopes very simple and breakfast and lovely coffee made the journey nicer. Phil and michelle couldn't be any more accommodating, they even met us for apres drinks and drove us back if... More

This place is great no matter what your leisure purpose might be. We stayed there only one night due to tough schedule, but we regretted not being able to spend more time there. The owners are really nice and cool, you can have great conversations with them about the area and they have tips and tricks. Room was clean, with... More

Nothing to complain about here. Comfortable, warm, nice simple breakfast and friendly owners. Bus stop right outside which makes it ideal for ski trips. The Tacconnaz Glacier is above the chalet, amazing views. We were lucky enough to have a room at the back, facing the glacier, one of the best views in the valley. Night bus drops off about... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Chalet les Frenes and it bought back some brilliant memories. As mentioned in the other reviews the chalet is in a good location with access to many slopes. We hired a car so we could access all we needed but the bus is also available. That covered the skiing. The chalet... More

I didn't actually plan on going to chamonix but there was a cheap bus heading there so I decided it was worth a look. Booked at the last minute for a bargain price, it cost less than the dodgy youth hostel I stayed in the night before :) The room was fantastic and the lady working there (I can't remember... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights to go skiing. The bus was close and free, taking you to the town or to the ski slopes. The Chalet it's self was beautiful: comfy rooms, jacuzzi, little area for socialising with other guests and a lovely breakfast. Phil and Michelle are both lovely and always there to help, even...

The chalet is located at "Les Bossons", about 10 mins from the Chamonix centre by bus. You can also take the bikes that are available from the chalet. The buses are not until very late although, the last is about a little before 9 pm. There are some night buses if you want to stay a little further but their... More

This chalet is a short distance away from Chamonix, so you either need to drive or take a bus. There is bus service not too far away. The host/owner, Phil, is a really nice British fellow, and a good host. We shared a bath, which was no problem. Our breakfast selection was good, as were Phil's restaurant recommendations. The bed...

Chalet Les Frenes is the perfect place to stay in Chamonix on a budget. We had an amazing very cozy room with doors leading out onto a balcony with fantastic views the mountains. The chalet is a little out of the centre of town meaning it's much quieter and peaceful than other options. The host, Phil, is remarkably friendly and... More

This Chalet is amazing. What a wonderful place to stay. Phil and Michelle are lovely people. Very kind and very helpful. Theres a fantastic bus service to and from Chamonix and a fantastic train service to Les Bossons which is a short walk away. And if you decide to party and miss all forms of transport its a lovely walk.... More
