This rental is just minutes away from the Flegere ski lift in Chamonix-Sud. The rental is comfortable but not luxurious. It sleeps 4 easily, 6 would be crowded. Kitchen is well equipped for light meals. Owner very helpful. more

The skiing is great; we skied in 5 different locations over our 6 day trip - you... more

The apartment is fairly small but was spotless and has everything you would need... more

Thanks you were great guests and left the apartment in immaculate condition. more
