A gorgeous warm and cosy chalet in stunning Les Houches, a really lovely small and friendly ski resort, and a 5 minute walk to Bellevue cable car, various bars (we got quite attached to the 'Spot On'), cafes, Intersport for ski hire and to the bus stop for the few minutes transfer to Prarion cable car with ski runs for all abilities. There are also two supermarkets within walking distance. Chamonix is 15 minutes by car, or alternatively via a regular bus service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
The chalet itself was exceptionally clean with comfortable beds and the powerful shower over the bath was just what we needed after a day on the slopes! The spacious balcony was perfect for sitting outside with a mug of coffee or hot chocolate to admire the stunning mountain views. There was 5 of us in our group and there was plenty of room for us all and the equipment cupboard on the ground floor provided handy storage for our ski gear.
Cannot recommend highly enough - fantastic accommodation in a beautiful location! We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely be back.
What a great stay we had here in March. A lovely 2 bedroom (1st floor) with small kitchen and dining/living room area, ski locker situated on ground floor and a small balcony overlooking the bottom of the black Kandahar run. Situated right next to the Bellevue cable car or the bus stop to take you 2 stops to the Prarion for lessons.
Location itself also handy for several restaurants and some good apres ski - notably the 'Kitsch Inn'. Bus also free to Chamonix centre with lots of additional amenities and restaurants.
Skiing at Les Houches - really good choice of slopes - one championship black and lots of reds and blues with good beginner area too - something for everyone - perhaps not as good for boarders with some flatter parts of some slopes, but lots of other ski areas accessible from the free bus 2 minutes from apartment. We have rented this apartment before and will definitely do so again.
