Super friendly with great service .as soon as you arrive you are made to feel welcome , great location near to all the lifts . The staff are superb and nothing is a problem . After a hard day on the slopes it's great to relax in the out door hot tub looking at the amazing views . I would defiantly recommend staying here !!!

I was a bit disappointed to arrive and could not enter as no one at home but the owner Dave soon arrived and said the magic word sorry. Dave is a nice guy and goes out of his way to please everyone but sometimes gets himself double booked! The chef James served up delicious food every day and everyone was very friendly. Our bedroom was great and the chalet had great facilities with a sauna & swimming pool but it was a bit dated. There was a great bunch of guests staying which made dinner a pleasure but there was 1 boring guy who endlessly complained about his aching knees.

A brilliant chalet. Great location, wonderful host (thanks Dave). Amazing combination of relaxation, good food, great company, skiing and a bit of dancing. The chalet is lovely, James the chef cooks excellent food and Dave was incredibly helpful in every way. I would highly recommend this chalet to anyone looking for a ski break. Interesting and entertaining combination of other guests who made the stay highly enjoyable.

I don't think an Alpine ski vacation can get anymore perfect than at the lovely Chalet Vert et Blanc in beautiful Chamonix France. My friends and I loved every minute of our stay and could not get over the amazing cooking by James the Chef. He is a true artist!
The chalet is located a little ways outside of Chamonix on a residential road. By foot it is about 20 minutes to the town center on the river path which is walkable even on snowy winter nights. There are free bus stops right in front of the chalet, and the buses are very regular and a super convenient way of getting to/from town or the slopes.
The Chalet host, David, makes organizing daily activities very easy. In the mornings while everyone enjoys a great breakfast David comes in to help everyone make ski plans for the day based on weather conditions, or provides information on planning alternative activities. He then takes everyone out to the slopes and drops them off and arranges a pick up time for the end of the day. How simple is that? David also books lift tickets upon arrival and takes everyone to pick up their gear the first morning.
Evenings in the chalet are all about luxury and begin with drinks and canapés next to the fire in the bar/living room area. A little while later dinnertime begins and everyone moves to the table to eagerly await James' announcement of the dinner menu. Dinner is comprised of an appetizer, main course, desert and cheese service. Every aspect of the dinner service is exceptional and the meals are amazing. Wine is included with the dinner service and so is after dinner coffee, tea and sweets.
Our room in the chalet was small, but very clean with a modern bathroom and plenty of hot water. I found the thinness of the walls pretty uncomfortable as I could hear even the slightest noises in the room next to me. This is was not a huge issue because all of the people staying at the chalet were very quiet and considerate. However, I think that adding a fan or air purifier in each room to use as a white noise maker would go a long way to providing an added sense of privacy.
We could not have met a nicer group of people staying at the chalet. The environment was very relaxed, and everyone seemed to enjoy sitting in the living drinking some wine, discussing their day and playing some pool. As is typical with a ski trip, most folks were off to bed not long after the dinner service to get rested up for another day of skiing.
Chamonix itself is a beautiful town with tons to do even for non-skiers. It is full of wonderful and picturesque restaurants, amazing shopping and several apres ski bars. The town is most active during the apres ski hours, which is a great time walk along the pedestrian areas drinking vin chaud from the sidewalk stands and shopping for treats at the beautiful charcuteries.
Overall I cannot say enough about the chalet. Vert et Blanc is an elegant, yet laid-back, European chalet experience not to be missed.
Traveler tip: Bring some warm slippers from home because outdoor shoes are not permitted inside to keep out the mud/snow.

We had a wonderfull week in chalet vert et blanc with 2 family's single use. We were 12 adults and 4 kids from 1 to 3 year old. The chalet had a good size living room,( ideal with 4 kids) bar, snooker table, a lovely hot tub and sauna.David was a super host and brought the skiers to the slope and back home in the evening. Nathalie provided a good service during the meals and was always very friendly. Every morning there was a special of the day( omelet with cheese our salmon etc) but also any other cooked option, prepared by James who also cooked a wonderfull meal every evening : lam, fish, confieted duck ( the real one, it took him 2 days of preparation) everything was just delicious. So thank you to all of them for this super holiday!

My son and I have recently been on out first ski trip together. I work away so time with my boy is precious. Chamonix is of course a fantastic venue and has everything you could want in a French ski resort, with fantastic slopes and facilities, restaurants and shops to cater for all. That being said a holiday is not complete without a great place to stay.
Vert et Blanc is a very comfortable, warm and welcoming place to stay. The rooms are good and there is nothing that you really need left wanting. The food is excellent with a very good selection of wines served, all differing every night. All of the food is prepared by a great chef, James. He was absolutely great with my son and really listened to what he needed and put so much effort in to making his dining experience special. All the guests were looked after very well in all aspects whether it be ski related, or anything else for that matter. Dave and Jackie, the owners, are fantastic. They help in any way possible and simply cant do enough for you.
I must admit I can be fussy particularly where my son is concerned, as I think all parents are. I was not disappointed at Vert et Blanc. My son really felt at home and very relaxed around the place, and was able to really relax and be himself. This of course helped me to do the same.
In short, if you have kids or if you don't, Vert et Blanc is a place that you can go to with confidence that you will have a good holiday and will be looked after.
Thanks to all the guys, we will both be seeing you again.

This was a nice Chalet in a good position. The food was excellent - breakfast, which included a cooked special or you could choose a cooked option/cereal etc. Dinner was also a very enjoyable experience with hor d'erves and 3 courses including wine + cheese which I only managed on one evening due to the generous portions.

We stayed for a week and thought the chalet was very comfortable, we had some issues with the heating in our room (top floor) but David was quick to sort it out. WI-FI was a bit patchy on the top floor but worked fine in the lounge.

Chalet location was fine, we walked into Chamonix on a few evenings along the footpath which follows the river and it took around 20 minutes. We also walked to a bar les rhododendron in Le Paz which was only a about 10 minutes away.

The skiing was good and David dropped us at the lift of our choice and also offered advice of best place to ski for that particular day, he offered to pick us up in the evenings from the lift but we used the local free bus service which was simple and excellent to use and dropped right outside the Chalet (the stop is "Les Illettes").

We picked the Chalet as we expected there would be other couples but the week we picked was mainly groups of guys, a mix of Brits and ANZACs plus a group of Norwegians and a group of Dutch all of whom were excellent company.

Overall, a very enjoyable holiday.
