Peaceful retreat minutes from the heart of Chamonix

  • 5 of 5

Well this was a real find. As opposed to the multiple small properties in Chamonix catering for up to 6 people, this place is unapologetically set up for one or two people to stay in luxury. The location is perfect, on the edge of town with uninterrupted views to Mt Blanc, but only a five minute walk to the main street and not even 10 mins (in ski boots) to the buses.

Florence is a perfect host, engaging and helpful. A bottle of wine was waiting upon arrival and more cakes and wine were provided upon discovering it was my birthday. The edge of town location has enabled the local deer to take advantage of Florence's hospitality during the winter and I was able to witness the herd wondering around the garden in the evening, sometimes due to Florence keeping me updated by text :).

The place is obviously Florence's pride and joy, and quite rightly too. The Chalet itself is stunning, a real work of art with amazing wooden carvings inside and out. The old world charm is complemented by modern kitchen and bathroom fittings. The bedroom is palatial and the living room is a delightful place to spend time browsing the coffee table books with pictures of the Chamonix of yesteryear.

All in all, perfect. I fully intend to return in the summer at some stage. Thank you Florence for letting me stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Iain, What an amazing and kind Review! Thank you so much. I am really moved. You have been a wonderful Host that I warmly recommend to any homeowner who will be fortunate to greeting you. I am glad you enjoyed your week at Chalet Florence and in beautiful Chamonix. The family deer keep coming many times, every night, to eat in front of the chalet. They are so hungry with this long-lasting winter. I already gave them 300 kilos fo corn grains, etc. This morning, we had 10 cm of fresh snow in the garden. Skiing today at Grands-Montets was fantastic with fresh snow and good weather. I would be so happy to welcoming you this summer. Chamonix offers such a wide range of mountain summer sports as well as many beautiful sites to visit around Chamonix. I wish you a great spring in London. Kind regards, Florence

Amazing place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay with Florence in her chalet. It is spacious, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need for preparing your meals plus there is also a BBQ for your use. The weather was warm enough that we could eat all our meals outside using the lovely teak table. The bed was very comfortable and so peaceful. We also enjoyed sitting in the garden enjoying the magnificent scenery all around. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay at Chalet Florence as it is exactly as described and Florence is a wonderful host. Definitely 5 star accommodation.

Owner's Response: Dear Sandra and Doug, dear Friends from British Columbia, It has been such a wonderful knowing you and having you over, for two weeks, at Chalet Florence. You have been such great Guests, taking such good care of the chalet and enjoying yourselves, hiking every day, with a splendid weather. I highly recommend you at any home owner who will be fortunate to welcoming you. I thank you very much for the lovely Review you published on VRBO. I am sure it will convinced potential guets to pick up Chalet Florence. As you saw, I put all my heart to keep the chalet and the garden in a mint shape and to make my Guests feeling like at home. Home sweet home. I am glad you trip in the UK went fine, after Chamonix. After many weeks of traveling, you are back in British Columbia. What a beautiful area in Canada. Unfortunately, awful fires are destroying the so gifted Nature and wild life in your area. So sad ........ I keep my fingers crossed for an end of these fires, very soon Best luck for BC. Best luck for both of you, for your health, your happiness and your many travels. Florence + Ficelle + the two kitties

A special place and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place with stunning 360-degree views of the French Alps, including Mount Blanc. Conveniently located within walking distance of trams/lifts, markets and bakeries, restaurants, and shops yet in a quiet neighborhood with all the privacy anyone could want. Stunning views of the surrounding mountains from the private back yard made breakfasts and dinners a special treat. A great farmers market in town and access to our host's organic garden on the premises were much appreciated sources of fresh produce and herbs. Lovely chalet with hand-carved wood features combined with modern conveniences make the stay interesting as well as comfortable. The host was most welcoming and helpful, exuding a warmth reminiscent of a great friend or favorite aunt yet providing the privacy appropriate for our vacation visit. We will be sure to visit again when our travels next take us to lovely Chamonix!

Owner's Response: Dear Timothy and Jane, It has been so pleasant meeting you and welcoming you at Chalet Florence, last month. You are wonderful Guests that I warmly recommend to any home owner who will be fortunate to have you over. I thank you very much for the lovely Review you posted on VRBO. It is so kind and so thoughtful of you both. Merci! I would be thrilled to greeting you again, in the future. If you wish to come with another couple or with family, there is also the little chalet next door, 'Mazot Florence', which can accommodate 2 persons. Since you left, we are experiencing a great weather here, in Chamonix. Of course, in the morning, it is really cool but during the day, temperature is so comfortable. The autumn light makes the panorama even more beautiful. Fall colors have not showed yet. In the vegetable garden, the last zucchini and bell peppers are showing up. Lettuces grow very slowly now. I will be thinking of you, wishing you a beautiful fall in Mass. See you next winter? Kindest regards from Chamonix, Florence Chamonix, France 2 beautiful chalet (pour 2 persons each) to rent for lovely holidays facing Mont-Blanc.

Great Accomodation, Quiet yet close to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this Chalet for a week in August during UTMB Week. Florence is a great host, non obtrusive, but always available to answer questions to assist in any way she can. The Chalet is impeccably clean, well landscaped, and full of conformable accommodations. The views from the yard of Mont Blanc, Aiguille du Midi, Bossons Glacier and Brevant are spectacular. I highly recommend this chalet for anyone visiting Chamonix who wants central access to the downtown area, trail heads and lifts, with a secluded feeling of an alpine retreat.

Owner's Response: Dear Samantha and dear Jeffrey, Thank you so much for your lovely Review posted on VRBO. It is so kind of you and most appreciated. You have been such lovely Guests. I highly recommend you warmly to any home owner who will be fortunate to welcoming you. I am so glad you had this beautiful weather all along your stay here, for your sporty activities and visiting beautiful Chamonix and surroundings. I would be thrilled to greeting you again in the future. Winter here offers a large range of activities and spectacular sites to visite in a snowy alpine atmosphere. If you had a chance to let friends, family and colleagues know about my two charming chalets to rent here, in Chamonix, it would be so kind of you. I wish you both and your family a great fall. Kindest regards, Florence

A cozy couples' hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a comfy cottage in Chamonix! You will love the fresh lettuce from the garden that you pick to your own delight, a modern kitchen with a dreamy pass-through window for ease of outdoor dining, freshly baked goodies (fruit pies and lemon bread) that hostess Florence provides, outdoor furniture where you can sit & admire the view of the Aiguille de Midi (highest point of Mont Blanc) while hang gliders float just below snow covered mountain tops. The king-size bed and linens are topnotch, internet & TV connections perfect, and the short 15 minute walk into Chamonix convenient for your daily constitutional & loads of delicious food choices. Florence is welcoming & shares many a local story, just ask her about her mother's skiing career! The hiking here is spectacular; we did the Tour de Mont Blanc after our one week stay at the chalet to get used to the altitude. Great place for reconnecting with your partner. This makes the perfect anniversary surprise, I kept hearing "oohs & ahhs." No better place to stay in this area. Merci beaucoup Florence!

Owner's Response: Dear Marcia, What a wonderful surprise! Your detailed Review is amazingly kind and thoughtful. I am so moved. I thank you very much. It has been such a pleasure to welcoming you and Antonio, last week, at Chalet Florence. You have been such wonderful Hosts, enjoying Chamonix and its surroundings so much. I highly recommend you both to any home owner who will be fortunate to greeting you. Remembering our discussions, I started to email you photos about what to visit during the spring - summer - autumn season. I am also looking for a friendly ski teacher speaking Portuguese or Italian for you, if you come back next winter. I would be so thrilled to have you coming back, what ever the season is. I miss you! I guess you are back to San Paolo. I wish you both a great year, filled with joy and serenity. Kindest regards to both of you. Florence
