A lovely experience and so practical if you want to be up the mountain really quickly and not trek around the valley. If you do want to go all over then Maddy will happily drive you. The personal touch really did make this a very different experience for our second time in Chamonix. I was a little hesitant about a Chalet rather than a hotel but I would take the Chalet every time if the service and accommodation was like this. Andy and Maddy are *great* cooks, keep the place super clean and are helpful before and throughout your stay. Fun, genuine people. We had just the right level of attention that we needed. The rooms were nice and clean and our bathroom was brand new with decent power in the shower for unwinding after the long day. If you think you area good skier then you will enjoy going out on the mountain with Andy, if you are lucky enough to get the opportunity! We'll be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You will find us nestled just next to the Prarion lift in Les Houches, some 30 seconds walk from the bottom of the lift station (yes we have timed it). Our 12-person Chalet Chavants is a traditional yet newly refurbished chalet, filled with charm and plenty of character. We have 180m2 of living space spread over two floors, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Les Houches is a fantastic holiday destination in both summer and winter, and for this reason we are open throughout the year.To make your stay enjoyable and entertaining while off the mountain, we have free WiFi, sky TV, a DVD/VCR player, a Nintendo Wii, board games, books and an honesty bar. Our beautiful sun-drenched terrace outside also has a hot tub, and just a few steps further takes you into our large garden. ... more less
