Lovely chalet in Chamonix with all the facilities. Located in a quiet neighborhood and very close to center (2 minutes walk). We really enjoyed the woodstove and the atmosphere of the place. Nigel, the owner, is a gentleman. Our dog was welcomed. We would love to go back someday.
After not having a holiday in a long time, I booked this chalet as a retreat.
On arrival Nigel and Timmy (his dog) gave me a warm welcome (Quite literally, it was 24 degrees when I arrived.
The chalet has everything kitchen, bathroom. double bed and a wood burning stove (with unlimited wood) this keeps the entire chalet very warm indeed.
I am already planning to return with friends.
Location is 500 yards away from the chalet, but you cannot hear any traffic or people in the centre. Perfectly central to everything. I recommend you walk to the Super U Market in the centre as this is the cheapest. The Casino shops can get quite expensive.
I would like to send a sincere thank you to Nigel & Family for their hospitality.
Perfect little chalet in the heart of Chamonix. We stayed here for 5 nights and it was exactly what we needed - cosy but not cramped, a well-stocked kitchen and thoughtfully designed. The location is great too: a short 5 minute walk to town and 10 minutes to the ski lifts. Nigel (the owner) was incredibly helpful, providing information on airport transfers, ski hire and where the best areas were to ski. We would definitely visit again if we're in the area!
My partner and I spent an incredible long weekend at the Alpine rose and couldn't have pictured spending a few days away under a snowy mountain in a more fitting place. It was quaint but with sufficient clever space inside for everything you need for a self catering holiday. The log fire keeps the place so warm inside and even without that that he electric heaters were sufficient during our stay. The kitchen and shower are well equipped and the bed is super comfy.
It offers the most breath taking views that you never quite tire of. It is only a 5 minute walk to the centre of chamonix yet tucked away enough to feel private and out of the way.
Nigel, the owner, was more than helpful and very friendly! Always on hand if you had a query and the communication made for a stress free stay.
Can't wait to visit again! Thank you nigel!
My partner and I stayed in this little chalet for a week in January and had an excellent stay. Nigel is a great host, very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The chalet is a short walk (5 minutes) from the main 'high street' of Chamonix yet it is sufficiently tucked out of the way that it is actually in a very quiet location. It is also a short walk to the bus stop, for access to ski lifts in the winter months in particular. The cabin is small, but cosy and perfect for a couple. The kitchenette is very small but we were still able to cook some massive post-skiing meals. The log burner is efficient and kept the cabin extremely snug (- there are also electric heaters too, but we didn't need to use these.) Nigel's recommendation for ski gear hire was also really helpful. We'll definitely return, perhaps this time in the summer for walking. It is obviously not a 'modern' option i.e., no television, but that, for us at least, was definitely part of the attraction. One small criticism along this line is that the wifi connection was not particularly good - but I think that might be an issue for the entire valley. Overall a very enjoyable, comfortable and relatively inexpensive place to stay in Chamonix!
Just back from Chalet Alpine Rose what a beautiful place for some rest and recuperation. We're not skiers but if we were this place is central to all activity.... a 3-4 minute walk into town centre but quiet enough to feel like you're miles away and at one with nature. Warm cosy and lots of wood stacked up outside the door to feed the wood burning stove. Nigel the owner messaged us the night before our stay to double check arrival details and told us if we had any problems finding the chalet to call him and he would find us. Tell me what hotel would add that personal touch? He was nearby really so helpful with any information when we needed it but also totally unobtrusive. He has the balance so right. He really made our stay a wonderful experience! Thankyou to Nigel and to anyone thinking about booking stop thinking and just do it. You won't be disappointed
The location is sensational, close to everything but far enough away for privacy. Perfect cabin for two with plenty of room. Great views wherever you look out from. Nigel very kindly picked us up from local station after advising us best station to alight at, gave us some tour trips and made sure had enough firewood to keep us going and warm. Plenty of hot water, heating and enough room in kitchen to cook for two. Only things missing were snow and squirrels! Thanks again Nigel. Had a great week.
