Alpes A is a gorgeous modern apartment smack bang in the centre of Chamonix, opening onto the main pedestrianised street but accessible by car with underground parking from the other side. All the local restaurants bars and entertainment are on the doorstep but the apartment is not noisy and there is no disturbance from the street - good news when trying to get the kids to sleep! The (free) bus to the ski stations is just across the street, or if you prefer to walk it is 5 minutes on foot to the Aiguille du Midi, Savoy, and Planards lifts and Montenvers train station. The apartment itself is in a modern and spotless building, it is comfortably furnished and had all the modern conveniences we needed for comfortable and enjoyable ski holiday and the agents MyFrenchChalet.com were efficient and easy to deal with. We will definitely come back again, and are thinking of making a summer trip as well.
