Location

The best of both worlds, it is situated in a quiet residential area away from the main village road and valley highway, semi rural with amazing mountainous 360 degree views, although close to amenities with the local supermarket being just 2 minutes drive away.

The busy Chamonix town centre is just a short drive way either on the valley highway or quieter B road, where you’ll finds lot of bars, restaurants, shops and tourist activities. The village is just a short drive or walk which also has a great tourist information centre, and a selection of bars and places to eat.
