Enjoyed our stay at this lovely chalet, a pleasant walk following the river (direction "Les Houches") from the centre of Chamonix, situated in a quiet residential area away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. There are several restaurants in the neighbourhood, serving local food. The owners are welcoming and friendly, and provided a nice breakfast in the morning.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy with our choice. The accommodation is basic but adequate. No frills, but warm and dry and the owners are very friendly and helpful. There is a free bus service to Chamonix right out the front and good restaurants within walking distance.

Two friends, staying for 4 nights on a short skiing trip. Chalet les Frenes is a simple yet comfortable place, situated around 3 miles from the centre of Chamonix in the Les Bousson area, with a beautiful backdrop of the Mont Blanc foothills. It sits on regular (free) bus routes into town and the ski areas. Owners Phil and Michelle... More

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...
