Why Corin Martin chose Les Houches
Chalet Fiz is a really charming chalet with a large, beautiful garden. The chalet is in a charming hamlet but only a short drive to all the other parts of the valley as the motorway is very close by car. Les Houches is only 5 minutes and has everything you need with the best supermarkets in the valley. Chalet Fiz is also very warm and cosy in winter with the huge wood burner and you can watch the snow fall through the triple folding doors at one end of the lounge. These can be completely opened up in summer with access onto the large new deck and 5 man hot tub. The lounge, bedrooms and beds are all very comfortable and the main bathroom and kitchen very stylish after a full renovation. There is also a good tv and sound system with a DVD collection.
What makes this Chalet unique
The very large garden with a stream running through it and surrounding forest is an unusual bonus in the valley. In summer there are many flowers and the forest is amazingly green! I love the outdoor hot tub under the stars and the sound of the stream running through the garden. Vaudagne is a great place to go for walks and admire the stunning scenery. Les Houches is also a great place to ski with lovely forest runs and great 360 views. The restaurants on the pistes in Les Houches are also the best in the valley.

We (3 couples) had a great time at chalet fiz.
The garden is beautiful and the hot tub and fire place (only way of heating!) are fantastic treats and function very well and easily. The first day we didn't have WiFi, but it got fixed on the second day, which was great. Also, we were very happy that they could arrange an early drop off of our luggage and a late check out for us.
The location is great, too, very quiet and pretty remote, so a car is recommended.
The ground floor bedroom and master bathroom is all underfloor heated and each bedroom has an electric heater so in fact it is only the lounge that is heated by the wood burner.
Lovely, quiet and comfortable chalet
We had a great week's stay at Chalet Fiz during summer 2017. The chalet was very comfortable for our family (two couples and two children aged 3 and 5) - the hot tub was fantastic, the garden was lovely and the accommodation was well appointed. It is in a quiet location which was perfect for us - slightly away from the busyness of Chamonix but an easy 15 minute drive into town (or less to Les Houches). We hope to return to the Chamonix valley and would be pleased to stay at Chalet Fiz again.
Great place, great location!
Chalet Fiz was simply amazing! Beautiful interiors, newly refurbished with all the amenities one needs. The garden is a real delight too and the cherry on the cake is the jacuzzi on the terrace. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will surely be back.
Notre séjour dans le chalet de Corin était parfait
Le chalet de Corin est parfait! Idéalement situé à deux pas de l'autoroute tout en étant isolé et permettant de se sentir seuls au monde dans ce chalet idyllique! Aussi bien l'intérieur que l'extérieur de ce chalet sont parfaits! L'aménagement des pièces, la pièce à vivre invitant à la détente, les chambres, les literies, le jacuzzi, le jardin avec son petit ruisseau ... tout est fait pour vous faire passer un superbe séjour! Je recommande vivement ce chalet!
The perfect mountain get away
This is a perfect mountain chalet for a group of people visiting the Chamonix Valley. Straight out the door you are into stunning alpine countryside with numerous paths to explore. Chamonix is just ten minutes down the road in the car, but Les Houches is even closer and has two supermarkets.
The chalet itself is sumptuously decorated with a keen eye for detail and also includes some enchanting photography from the local area.
There is everything you could possibly want here. The fire is a wonderful contraption to behold and soon has the place warmed up. And the hot tub is fantastic. All rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The beds are very comfy.
Corin is a knowledgeable and charming host who makes sure you have everything you could possibly need and even keeps you abreast of local events.
The garden is also beautiful and clearly a lot of effort has gone into it. It's so pretty I want to go back there with my daughter just to show her how wonderful a garden can be.
A real gem that I would definitely recommend to anybody.
I hope I will return.
the perfect retreat😎
