Emma and Paul were standing in for the owners and could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We (2 couples) really enjoyed our stay and will come again if we can. Paul even offered to drive us into town when the buses had stopped running in the evening. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place to lay...

Enjoyed our stay at this lovely chalet, a pleasant walk following the river (direction "Les Houches") from the centre of Chamonix, situated in a quiet residential area away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. There are several restaurants in the neighbourhood, serving local food. The owners are welcoming and friendly, and provided a nice breakfast in the morning....

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy with our choice. The accommodation is basic but adequate. No frills, but warm and dry and the owners are very friendly and helpful. There is a free bus service to Chamonix right out the front and good restaurants within walking distance.

This place is great no matter what your leisure purpose might be. We stayed there only one night due to tough schedule, but we regretted not being able to spend more time there. The owners are really nice and cool, you can have great conversations with them about the area and they have tips and tricks. Room was clean, with...
