Location, location, location
This apartment is located in the centre of the alpine town of Chamonix and close to everything, and yet is quiet, peaceful and tucked away from the main street, set along the beautiful glacially fed Arve river. Our private balcony has views of Mont Blanc and catches the morning and early afternoon sun. Free high speed password-protected wireless internet allows you to touch base with the ‘real world’ when you need it.
Close to hiking paths, lifts and transportation
Your Alps Adventure starts here ! You will be only a 5 minute walk to the Aiguille du Midi lifts (and the famous Vallée Blanche ski run) or to the Brèvent ski station as well as minutes away from the 2 nursery slopes of Les Planards and Le Savoy. You are also a 250m walk to the Cham Bus stop which brings you quickly to any other ski station in the area (Grandes Montets, Domaine de Balme, La Flégère, Les Houches etc.).
Central yet calm
Unlike many other apartments in the centre of town, the Residence Anna Bouclier is very quiet (double glazed windows and metre thick stone walls help). It is in a small building with only 3 other apartments, set back from the street level, and right on the river – you will not need to worry about getting good night’s sleep for an early start on the slopes or for your hike or climb. The glacial river keeps the apartment cool in the heat of summer, and the fireplace and heating keeps it toasty warm in winter.
Unique and authentic character
You will be staying in a 250 year-old building that has been around since the early days of Chamonix. There is still a legal right of way for cows to be driven to the river in the alleyway (now a sandwich shop) next to our flat! This apartment was our first home in Chamonix and we want you to enjoy staying there.
The apartment is available on a weekly basis during the Spring, Summer and Autumn seasons starting May 15th. Winters are often run as a full seasonal 5 month rental from December – end April.
