About the apartment

The apartment is part of a small development built in 2002. Unusually for this type of property there is a spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, and a large terrace with connecting balcony. Apartment floor area is around 75 square metres, the terrace is around 50.

The terrace is partly shaded during summer days, and is safe for small children to play, while parents can watch them through the French windows in the main bedroom.

The apartment has been independently audited for child safety, and has a range of baby and toddler equipment (high chair, cots, steriliser, changing mat, etc).

The nearest ski lift is 150m away, and you can ski to within 100m of the door.

Local shops, bars and restaurants are within 200m, and there is a supermarket 10 minute walk away (not downhill!). Chamonix town is 5km, 10 minutes by car or 20-30 by bus. Bus services along the valley stop outside the cable car, 150m away. Access to all main ski areas in the Chamonix Valley is easy by bus or car.

The apartment is comprehensively equipped, and there is an allocated parking space in the secure underground garage, with additional parking available on the driveway. 

Les Houches is at the entry to the Chamonix Valley, with its own ski area. A quiet village five km from Chamonix town, with easy access to all local and area facilities.

The Chamonix Valley is world-famous for its variety and range of skiing, but it is emphatically NOT a linked, purpose built, ski system. Les Houches is excellent for beginners and intermediates and is entirely tree lined, which helps in bad weather. The local bus (150m from the apartment) is free and goes to all other areas in the Valley. Keen skiers will need no introduction to Argentiere, one of the world's premier off-piste destinations. Other areas in the Valley cater for all levels and tastes. Being easily accessed by road, Les Houches is an excellent base for exploring other ski resorts - there are a wide range within day trip range in France, Italy and Switzerland - particularly Megeve, Courmayeur and Flaine.

Other activities include climbing, rafting, canyoning, paragliding, walking, husky sledding, forest adventure parks, good shopping. There is even a beach at Lacs du Passy, 10 miles away. Chamonix golf course is approx. 6 miles away. There are even world-class art galleries (Martigy, 1 hour) and jazz festivals (Montreux, 90 minutes). Lakes Geneva and Annecy are easily accessible.

The Chamonix Valley is an enxcellent base for touring the western Alps and northern Italy - Geneva is one hour, Milan and Turin area about 2-1/2 hours. Even Venice is less than five hours!
