“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Having spent a wonderful weekend at Chalet Jumelles last winter we have just booked to go back again in January and remembered how great the stay was. The cooking was superb, the welcome was warm and the service from the resort team was first class. Snow was great and we will be looking forward to Chamonix again this year!

We've stayed at Chalet Les Jumelles twice now, once in winter, fully catered, and once in summer, self-catered with a group of our friends. The staff, Sue and Gavin were all really friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to accommodate my endless questions about mountain restaurants, best ski locations and weather!

We really enjoyed both experiences; firstly being fed with amazing food by Stef and Andy, dropped at the slopes to try and work it all off, and then being able to relax in the evenings. We rented a room on this occasion and the other couples /families that stayed were lovely. Dinner together was always fun and we had a great time skiing with them on some of the days. Our favourite was when Ski Weekend drove us and the other guests through to Courmayeur as this was where the best weather was on the day, and for lunch they had arranged for us to stop at Maison Vieille; yes, we did seem to spend a lot of time eating and drinking, but it was still second to the skiing!

We took a group of friends out in summer and spent most days walking, hiking or down at the rock climbing site 3 minutes walk away. Evenings were typically wine filled with BBQ after BBQ in the sun on the porch. It has amazing views over Mt Blanc which is equally impressive in summer and winter. It is even more fun when you are trying to spot your friend and Gavin amongst all the paragliders as they spin round and round; unfortunately he (the friend, not Gavin) got a little motion sickness, but still loved the views!

The chalet room are well kitted out, each with en-suite showers/baths and the living/dining room was spacious and accommodated all of us easily. The kitchen was really well stocked with everything we needed and even though the nearest bakery for our morning croissants is a 3-5 min drive away, it was well worth it; we would also recommend what we called the "black" bread with some honey and comte cheese, yum!

I would recommend hiring a car in summer, which I would do if staying in Cham anyway, as it means you can get around in your own time rather than waiting for the buses. The walk into town is really easy and you have to pass a beautifully cold water spring, which is well worth it to fill your bottles up. We didn't need one in winter as the Ski Weekend staff pick you up to and from the slopes, which is most definitely a treat as I would hate to try and find a park at the lift bases.

If it is possible, get up to Les Houches for the most amazing regional meal at Les Vieilles Luges. Ski Weekend arranged for us to snow shoe up in winter for dinner and we walked up for lunch in summer. I love the snow shoeing as it just adds to the charm of the whole experience. Beware though, you might be a little tipsy coming down...

We're looking forward to going back for this winter, fingers crossed for good snow!

A hidden gem in the Chamonix valley is what my wife called it... This chalet, 'Jumelles' is a great spot or base from which to partake in the activities available. It's not far from the high street either. We have stayed here a couple of times, once in winter and this time over the summer. For a ski trip it was perfect, with great cheffing and all the services you'd expect from a high end chalet. This time around it was a leisure trip to the Alps in summertime, and proved even more of hit with the family. The views are outstanding with the glacier directly in front of you.
Also a great benefit in the winter having underfloor heating throughout - v cosy.

.... unless you are more than one family.

Unfortunately, my family and I, chose to spend our summer holiday at this Chalet in Chamonix.

We have visited a lot of chalets in the alps, and this was definitely one of our worst experiences.

It was incredibly dusty and uncleaned at arrival and the garden is WAY to overrated !!!

Of course you have a wonderful view over the Mont Blanc - but that is it....

One of the staff members, a man, chose to take naps and surf the internet, in one of the bedrooms in the basement when we were there, so when my mother went down to the laundry machine in her pyjamas, she was greeted by this stranger.... NOT what you would expect from a 1.500 £ chalet !

One of the days in our holiday, we woke up at 8 am, because there was a lot of noise just outside our bedroom in the driveway. Apparently, some of the owners friends had an agreement with the owner, that they could use the driveway as moving-day-storage... resulting in: we could not get our car out all day and had to stay home....

Must say that i can't recommend this place...

You can get SO much more for these money elsewhere !

We chose Chalet Jumelles, Chamonix, as they offered a four night, Thursday to Sunday, package. The short transfer from Geneva airport meant we were able to ski Thursday afternoon and most of Monday. We booked it through www.skiweekend.com who were helpful and easy to deal with.

Chalet Jumelles is located in Les Pecles, a quiet suburb of Chamonix with a fantastic view of Mont Blanc and the Aiguille de Midi from the large lounge/dining area.

It was a pleasant 20-25 minute walk into Chamonix centre, although Stef and Andy our chalet hosts were more than happy to drive us in the chalet minibus.

The food in the chalet was the real highlight of our holiday. Andy Fox our host and chef, has worked at some of the top restaurants in the UK and it shows. Generous portions, beautifully presented, superbly cooked and an imaginative menu, including my vegetarian option, what more could you ask for?

The fact that the skiing in Chamonix is split between four un-linked areas has always deterred us from staying here. However with Andy or Stef dropping us at our required ski-lift every morning access to the slopes was trouble-free. Each ski area has its own atmosphere and different landscape and terrain, so you had the feeling of being in a new resort each day. It was low season so queues were not a problem and we were blessed with clear blue skies, warm sunshine and the best snow cover that the area has had for years.

We had a great holiday and would recommend the chalet and Skiweekend to anyone looking for a short ski break or even a longer visit.
