Cute apartment, friendly host
Enjoyed our stay at Jean-Pierre's apartment. It's a small space, good for 2 people, and in a great location near the Midi lift. The balcony opens onto
a pedestrian promenade that is quiet. There is a ski locker on the ground floor. Also, since I was unclear on guest cleaning responsibilities I'll leave this advice for any other American who is unfamiliar with a rental in France. There is a requirement to return the apartment fully cleaned, unless you opt for a cleaning service charge up front (was 50 Euro for us). "Fully cleaned" is not just tidy, as you should leave a place in the USA. It means sweeping, mopping, glass cleaning, cleaning the toilet. You are preparing the apartment for the next guest. Or, if this doesn't suit you you could pay the cleaning fee.
We had some waiting time when we arrived and I recommend giving the host a call to time the initial meet-up and key exchange. Jean-Pierre is a friendly and helpful host. We would definitely stay here again.
nice property with everything you need
Very nice apartment it has everything you need to enjoy the mountain and facilities to cook, wash clothes etc. The bathroom is modern with a large good quality shower. Many of these apartments have the main bedroom and lounge area connected, this one the bedroom is completely stand alone and accessed from th hall, making it more suitable should you wish to share the property (is suitable for 4 people). The only thing I wasnt sure about from the advert is the location, the apartment is in Chamonix Sud pretty much directly opposite the bus station. This was ideal for us skiing as we were within walking distance of all of the shops restaurants and bars but could also catch every colour bus from over the road (great for getting to the different ski areas). Mr. Fiey was very professional and helpful. The only thing I'd say could do with an upgrade is the double bed in the bedroom as it feels a bit worn out.
Location, Amenities, Decor
We have just completed a wonderful 3 weeks in "our home away from home"
The best equipped of all our vacation rentals-dishwasher, microwave, stainless steel cookingware, high tech shower-everything you need. Location, location, location..steps to Chamonix Sud bus, lift, shopping and view from balcony of Mont Blanc. Wireless internet a real bonus. Manager Jean Pierre was very courteous and attended immediately to any requests. Enjoyed all the detail to alpine decor throughout the apartment. Chamonix tourists receive a bus pass for duration of stay which was excellent. Loved the Kebab restaurant on corner by bridge and purchased takeout meat often for our meals in the apartment.
Be sure to locate Super U for your grocery shopping...great specials. Definitely
be back to enjoy apartment again. Happy Canadians--Sharon & Marc
