Residence Quartz Mont Blanc
Reviewed March 30, 2012

This was my fourth visit to Chamonix for snowboarding - the town has lots to offer in terms of bars, restaurants and shops whilst the skiing terrains are varied and provide lots of areas to choose from in close proximity. The downside of Chamonix is you have to travel to each area via a free shuttle bus or preferably, as we did, hire a car/mini-bus to give you more flexibility and comfort. Chamonix is a town rather than a resort so don't expect ski-in or ski-out or apres ski as soon as you hit the bottom of the last run.
We travelled as a party of 7 all males so opted for the 3 bedroom apartment with additional mezzanine (130m2) on the top floor. What can I say?... Amazing luxury quality accommodation - it really made up what was a perfect holiday - lots of sunshine, snow and entertainment with a perfect place to sleep off the hangovers and aches/pains. The apartment was plentiful in terms of size, the kitchen is modern with integrated appliances, the bathrooms are luxurious (the bathrobes and slippers made a nice touch....) although a little disappointed as all three en-suite bathrooms had baths with no walk-in or cubicle showers. Despite this, there was a communual shower room which was luxurious and all could benefit. The apartment was fitted out with flat screen tv's in every room and the iPod/phone docking station was used daily....
Overall, this is a fantastic place to stay, the location is pretty much perfect - apres ski bars, clubs, restaurants all short walking distance and the views are spectacular (great full length balcony to admire the views also). The booking process was seamless and Jan and Marie were really friendly, helpful and very hospitable. Credit to them both for what they have achieved of what was a run down building.
Would definitely recommend this to groups, families, couples, etc, and would not hesitate to book again.

Room Tip: Top floor obviously has best views with balcony but think they are the larger sized apartments.

We had an incredible 10 days in the center of Chamonix at the Quartz Mont Blanc. The apartment was exceptionally clean, comfortable and well put together, perfect for a couple. Marie and Yannick are very kind and helpful hosts. We would return in an instant!

My wife and I have just enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay at Quartz Mont Blanc, and we'll certainly be coming back again in the future.

The good points... 1. Great central position, walking distance to buses, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and shops. Also just over the road to wonderful market on Saturday's to get local cheeses, meats, fruit, etc.
2. Modern, contemporary design of the apartments, modern fittings and appliances, light and airy and very clean. Ours was the single bedroom 50m2 apartment, perfect for a couple. The pictures on their website are very representative of the apartments. And great views of the mountains from every room. Also, a very good ski and boot storage room on the ground floor.
3. Great hosts, Marie and Yan, went out of their way to help us settle in, locate the essentials like supermarkets, bus stops, restaurants, etc. Also, I picked up a bad cold and Marie walked me to their local doctor and organized an appointment for me, on a Saturday afternoon. Many thanks Marie!!

We would certainly recommend Quartz Mont Blanc to anyone looking for a well located, modern, stylish and very clean apartment in Chamonix.

For starters the location could not be better, right in the centre but tucked to the side so nice and quiet. It is a new build which has been completed to the highest standard. the service is amazing and the owners are lovely, kind and considerate people. It has everything including a great place to store skis and boots. Best chalet we have found so thoroughly recommended by us.

We had a fabulous time at the Quartz Mont-Blanc. The apartment (175 m2) was very spacious, comfortable, bright, clean and true to the photos online. The layout is perfect for a big group, combining a mix of open and private areas. The kitchen was very well appointed with top of the line appliances. We enjoyed breathtaking views of the mountains from every room. Our hosts, Marie and Yann, were simply wonderful. They went out of their way to make sure we settled in fast and had a relaxing stay. Being from Chamonix, Marie and Yann know the area very well and they gave us many useful recommendations. The apartment is located right in the center of town, close to the shops. The shuttles to the mountains are just one block away and run very frequently. You really don't need a car if you plan to stay in Chamonix during your whole visit.

One of the highlights of our visit was a memorable snowmobile and skiing night trip in Courmayeur, Italy. We are so grateful to our hosts for providing us with information on Prestige (http://www.prestigeoutdoor.com), the association that ran the event. Our group of 9 included 5 adults and 4 teenagers who all appreciated the attention we received from our very knowledgeable and friendly guides, and the warm welcome we received from our hosts in Italy.

Our family Christmas vacation couldn't not have been better. We hope to be able to return to Quartz Mont-Blanc soon.

After a long drive travelling with two children we were pleasantly surprised to find Yannick and Marie our hosts waiting for us on arrival. We were then helped to our apartment and shown the ropes as well as briefed on local transport, shops and attractions. Being Aussies in France we really did have no idea on how things work in a ski village and Marie and Yannick (and Gun - pronounced Goon - the dog) were only a phone call away to help us with any queries.

The location of the apartment block was fantastic, everything we needed within walking distance as well as a knock out waffle stand next door, and a cheese/wine store in the same building.

Our apartment was pretty much sparkly new with breathtaking views to Mont Blanc. Beds were very comfy and apart from a few New Years Eve revellars we all woke fresh and ready to explore Chamonix and beyond each day.

Well worth a look if you're planning to visit Chamonix

We vacationed here with another family (so 4 adults, 4 kids) and this apartment accomodated us wonderfully. Very clean, slylish, plenty of space and 4.5 bathrooms. Very conveniently located, a block from the buses to ski mountains and just steps to the center of town. The owners were fantastic -- very friendly and helpful. Overall we couldn't have been more pleased with how everything worked out, and we definitely hope to go back.
