La Cloche des Bois is a semi-detached chalet located on a quiet ‘Cul de Sac’ in Les Bois. The neighbourhood of Les Bois is much sought out for its proximity to the ski lifts and cross-country skiing trails and the easy access to the hiking trails. The views are very impressive, with the towery Drus and Aiguille Verte to one side of the chalet and the Mont Blanc massif to the other side.
You can drive into Chamonix in 5 minutes, or you can take the picturesque path that leads through the Bois de Bouchet into the town centre. The train station is a 5 minute walk from the chalet, and using the Carte d’Hote provided you can ride the Mont Blanc Express into Chamonix town or in the opposite direction towards Martigny. The free buses also stop close by to the chalet and run along the length of the valley.

Excellent location, really a great and spacious accommodation with super beautiful view of the mountains and close to La Flegere ski area. Amazing Chalet, beautiful and clean.
Beautiful, big windows and a lovely walk to the village. Nice layout with room for the family.
Our group was very satisfied with our stay at the chalet. The mountain views and privacy were incredible. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the main room. It was an unexpected amenity that there was no TV there (it's in the basement), since we spent a lot of time admiring the mountains. It's doable without a car, as long as you don't mind the 10 min walk to/from the Les Praz/Flegere bus stop.
