Wonderful quiet place to stay with superb views.

  • 5 of 5

The views from the terrace are absolutely as good as they look in the photo. It is a pity that the same views can't be got from inside the house, though the Velox windows do show the mountains and the house is very light due to the amount of glass facing the Terrace. The house was very clean, comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. The Bathroom and Shower were a good size with plenty of hot water always available. The layout of the house maximises the space and prevents the main kitchen/diner/living room from feeling crowded. Eleanor was very helpful and friendly without being at all intrusive. There were only 2 of us and the living space may feel limited for more than 2 people, particularly the small couch if you're stuck inside for any time. The garage space gives peace of mind for parking off road. We had a great stay and would recommend the house to our friends. The distance from Les Houches makes the location seem very private and quiet, which was great for us and for sitting on that terrace. Thank you.

We stayed in winter last time, and liked it so much that we wanted to come back in summer. The apartment is gorgeous, Eleanor is delightful to deal with. Can't recommend it highly enough.

A lovely chalet in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week here in a well equipped and well styled property. In all our years of staying in self catering accommodation this ranks among the best. We have never come across such a great space as the sun deck, to sit on there with a BBQ looking at the most stunning view is an absolute delight. We loved it and hope to return.

Harmonious Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in this lovely condo in June, 2016. In that time, we did a lot of hiking and saw the mountains from all sorts of views - but NONE compared to what we enjoyed from our stunning temporary home in Les Houches. Pictures just can't capture the magnificence of the mountains - the depth and scope. The light, the clouds, the shadows were all constantly in motion making each glance different and special. The deck over the parking pad was a tremendous bonus!

Eleonore and her husband, Nicholas are really good people - kind and generous to the core. Even their cats were friendly, coming by to say hello every now and again but never interfering.

The space is beautifully decorated and well equipped, clean and modern, and quite roomy compared to many of the vacation rentals we have experience with. If our travels ever bring us to the area again, it would be our pleasure to stay here again. No question - a tremendous value.

Owner's Response: Merci Charlie et Elisabeth d'avoir écrit un message si long et si gentil. J'espère que la suite de votre voyage dans le sud de la France vous plait et que vous n'avez pas trop chaud ! Le paysage est très différent de chez nous mais tout aussi beau. J'ai oublié de vous dire de faire éventuellement un saut du côté de Fayence, qui est un joli petit village pas trop loin de Nice. J'y ai passé beaucoup de temps enfant chez mes grands-parents et il y a le 11 septembre sur la place du village un repas typique organisé : un aïoli !!! Ce jour là l'ambiance est vraiment super ! Et le mardi, le jeudi et le samedi il y a un joli marché sur la place du village. Beau voyage à vous et j'espère qu'on aura l'occasion de se revoir. Encore un grand merci, c'était vraiment un plaisir de vous rencontrer !

Unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in June 2014 for one week. Our breath was taken away immediately upon arriving and seeing those views of Mont Blanc! They are even better than in the pictures. We had a very comfortable stay and couldn't have been happier with our host. We were very close to Chamonix, hiking trails, grocery stores (even a health food store with vegan options!) and we really enjoyed reading on the deck with coffee or wine and taking in the views. We are looking forward to staying here again.
