A very pleasant surprise when we arrived late - beautiful large apartment. A little bit out of town for walking to bus stops with snow gear but everything else exceeded our expectations. more

This rental is just minutes away from the Flegere ski lift in Chamonix-Sud. The rental is comfortable but not luxurious. It sleeps 4 easily, 6 would be crowded. Kitchen is well equipped for light meals. Owner very helpful. more
