We loved the chalet. It is in a very peaceful neighbourhood but close to everything. The gondola of La Flegere is just around the corner, which has also ski access to Plan Praz Chamonix. If you want to walk to Chamonix it just takes 20 minutes. Will will definitely come back next time.
We loved our stay at Big Mountain House, a great place for our family. The kitchen was well equipped and the garden was a massive plus for us to make the most of the sunny weather. Amazing views and plenty of space.
