The apartment is on the lower floor of a small chalet. As you pass through your private entrance you enter directly into the lounge.

The decor is clean and neutral with hints of warm purple running through the room.

The sofa opens up with a real mattress underneath, to become a comfy full size double bed for older children or a second couple.

The lounge has a feature Crystal Rock Wall built by the original owner, who enjoyed hiking around the local mountains, and collecting these beautiful stones along his way.

There are French doors onto the terrace, which is lined with pine trees and in the winter you have an open view of the valley and viaduct below. A great space for making snowmen and playing in the snow.

Off from the Lounge is an internal storage cupboard for coats and shoes, and your skis and boots, keeping them warm over night.

It is only a few minutes walk to the first local ski lift, the 'Bellevue' telecabine and 20 mins to the 'Prarion' cable-car.

Plus it is only a 10 minute drive, or 15 minutes bus or train journey to the heart of Chamonix and it's ski slopes, as well as the gondola up to the Aiguille de Midi, Mont Blanc and the mountain train to the Mer de Glace.

Skiing
Les Houches sits at the foot of Mont Blanc, and from the summit of the ski area you will be thrilled by a 360° view of the surrounding area

The ski area of Les Houches extends from an altitude of 950m to 1900m.
From the summit one has a spectacular 360° view of the Mont-Blanc massive, and with 55 km of slopes meandering through the forests, you will discover the real pleasures of skiing.

The international reputation of Les Houches is built on the World Cup downhill piste "la Verte", but the resort is also an ideal terrain for learners, particularly with the new beginners' area, at the top of Prarion. The forest trails are a delight for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.
There is also a beginners area in the village for the little ones.

When needed, artificial snow coverage is assured by more than 120 snow maker machines, positioned throughout the pistes of Les Houches.

Les Houches offers 2 Nordic Ski trails: Les Chavants offers free access to cross country skiers combining snow fields and forests, and the trails of the Prarion require a lift pass as they are at high altitude.

We are more than happy to take part week bookings but at peak times this is not always possible. Please ask and we can let you know what dates are available for the time you are looking to stay.

Our normal arrival time is 3pm and the departure time is 11:00am. Of course if you are arriving or leaving when there are no other guests here on the same day, we can be flexible with these times.

Toegang voor gasten
Guests have access to their own self contained apartment which is totally separate to ours and their own patio garden space with table and chairs.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
COVID-19.
We are following a new enhanced cleaning protocol, taking significant steps towards protecting ourselves and our guests.

We will offer a key box service so no need to meet the hosts unless of course you would prefer to. We will provide phone numbers and will always be on-hand to answer any questions or help solve any problems that may arise.

Following the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) guidelines, we will wait 3 hours before entering the property, once you have departed, keeping ourselves safe in case the space has been occupied by a person who may have been exposed to COVID-19. It is for this reason that we have had to request an earlier departure time – however this can be flexible depending on future bookings and the cleaning timetable!

We will have the correct supplies to protect both ourselves whilst cleaning and the arriving guests, including:
• Disposable gloves
• Mask or cloth face covering
• Multi-surface disinfectant approved by our local regulatory agencies
We will first clean all surfaces, as well as wash all dishes and cups and glasses, and then focus on sanitising all frequently touched surfaces in the space (such as doorknobs and light switches)
We have a room-by-room checklist in a cleaning handbook to ensure that all appropriate areas have been cleaned and then sanitised.
As well as increasing our already strict cleaning protocol we will provide extra cleaning supplies for guests, including:
• Disposable paper towels
• Disposable gloves
• Multi-surface cleaner
• Disinfectant wipes or spray
• Antibacterial hand sanitizer
• Extra hand soap
• Dish washer Tabs

Les Houches, Rhone-Alpes, Frankrijk

Mountains for skiing and hiking in a village setting just 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Chamonix. Walking distance to all amenities needed for both holidays and living here. A mixture of French and English owned restaurants make it a very homely and welcoming place to visit.

Shopping:
There is a great Carrefour supermarket just 2 minutes away. It has a fresh meat and cheese counter and some great wines and breads.
The boulangerie, who also makes chocolate, is located opposite the Mairie’s office building, and we now have a new Fromagerie just opposite the chalet!

Restaurants:
Le Chavanne just along the road is a typical french restaurant. It has quite a small menu written on boards around the room, and it does a good ‘menu du midi’ each day (12-13:30) with a starter, main course and dessert for 13,50€. A good place to enjoy a pitcher of cold beer.

If you travel further up the road there is an English run restaurant, Le Delice, which has a great interesting menu, and a happy hour at 5:30.

Opposite Le Delice is a takeaway Pizza place, lovely thin crust pizzas but only open from 6 - 9.

10 minutes walk further is an Indian restaurant, Gandhi, which offer an amazing lunch time menu for 10,00€ - You won’t need to eat dinner later that day.

If you turn right out of the house there are a few restaurants on the bend of the road, opposite the Bellevue lift. Le Basillica is a friendly family run restaurant offering some typical and more unusual french food. The kitsch Inn is just behind the telecabine building and is an English run place, with typical English food.

Things to do:
*Take the Aiguille du Midi cable cars to view Mont Blanc, “Step into the Void” or try out a guided ski down the Valle Blanche.
*Travel on the Montenvers train to the Mer du Glace glacier and visit the new Glaciorium, crystal museum and Ice Cave.
*Visit the newly refurbished Les Houches Museum de Montagne.
*Visit the museums and exhibitions in Chamonix, as well as the many shops and restaurants.
*Chamonix Swimming Pool.
*Ice rinks in both Chamonix (with Ice Hockey matches) and Les Houches
*Evening Bowling in Chamonix.
*Indoor climbing wall in Les Houches
*Museums in Sallanches and Saint Gervais on mountain topics.
*Evolution 2 and Cham Aventures for lots of guided activities on the mountains and in the air.
*Servoz Gorge
*St Gervais thermal baths

We are both from England, and lived in the sea-side town of Brighton before we moved to France. We moved over to the Alps in 2007, on our first wedding anniversary. We bought an amazing penthouse apartment in La Chapelle d'Abondance, part of the Portes du Soleil ski domain. We had a few good years in La Chapelle, running our catered chalet, but our hearts were always in the Mont Blanc area. Warren taught himself to snowboard in Chamonix back in 1997, and then had many boys holidays here after that. He introduced me to the area when i was pregnant, as I missed out on the boarding then, we spent our honeymoon here shortly after. It has always been a special place for us. We have been fortunate enough to buy a chalet in Les Houches, just down the road from Chamonix. Living in the top & renting out the lower apartment. We feel so lucky to live here, the village has everything we need, and our two daughters are very happy.
