This is the second time I have visited the area and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Great location and only a 10 min walk from the centre of town.

The chalet was everything we had hoped for and was perfect for our group of six adults (anymore might have been a squeeze). Great views of Les Brevent and Aguille Du Midi from downstairs and the decking area outside - great way to start the morning with a coffee and taking in the spectacular views. The smaller double room upstairs has a skylight and offers the best view of all with Mont Blanc towering over the town. We were blessed to have great weather over our stay and waking up to this sight every morning was truly special.

I must also mention the chalet owner Rachael, who made us feel extremly welcome on our stay and had clearly taken a great deal of time to outline recommended trips, places to see and to eat on our visit. A really nice touch.

We are already planning our next trip...à bientôt !

Management response:

Four good-sized bedrooms gave plenty of space for our family of 5.

Lots of drying rails, with a washing machine and fully-equipped kitchen.

The WIFI worked fine and allowed us to check weather conditions and review the internet on local attractions. The TV was not connected externally, but plenty of DVDs available to keep us entertained in the evening. Also plenty of books - fictional and local-interest books.

The chalet was a 10-minute walk from the start of the main tourist area in Chamonix, and the local supermarket which was open 8am-8pm. Quiet area away from main roads and elevated to give good views of the valley.

The taxi back to Geneva did not leave until late afternoon and we appreciated the flexible checkout time (which of course might not always be available).

Had a great time. Thanks!
