The Maison Jaune Mazots are located right on the edge of the blue piste in the Les Houches ski area, making them truly Ski in Ski Out destinations. They sit in the picturesque gardens of the Maison Jaune chalet. These unique and charismatic properties each sleep up to 2 guests and provide a magical base for your stay in the Chamonix Valley. They have all you need for your stay, from a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, a comfy bed. Step out of the front door, click into your skis, and you’re off! They are both private enough to be rented as individual chalets, or can be rented along with the maison house and second Mazot to make up a total of 14 beds.
The Maison Jaune is located on the edge of the Ailloud home run, a short ski from the Bellevue and Prarion lift, giving direct access to the Les Houches ski area, or bus links to the other ski areas of the Chamonix Valley. The chalet is located close to the head of many of the famous walking trails such as the Chalet des Charousse and the Tour du Mont Blanc, where you can enjoy some stunning summer hiking or winter snow shoeing. A 5-minute drive takes you down to the Chavants lake, where you will find a lake side café/ restaurant, a bakery, a bolted climbing wall, tennis courts, a children’s playground and a beautiful wooded area for gentle walks. You can also walk down to the Chavants lake in about 20 minutes down picturesque back streets and walking paths. In the winter, the Chavant lake area offers cross country skiing, a children’s ski area and a sledging area. A short drive from the chalet, the Grange d’en Haute offers a Spa and a restaurant.
Mazot Crozat is accessed from a garden path leading down from the car park of the main house. There is a sunny terrace to the front of the Mazot, with breath-taking views of the Mont Blanc range, the perfect place to watch the alpine glow as the sun sets and or enjoy al-fresco dining in the summer. Inside the cosy Mazot is a comfortable double bed with plenty of storage overhead. There is a kitchenette with an electric oven, a gaz hob, and a fridge and whilst small and compact, all the necessary equipment is provided for cooking. An island next to the kitchen provides seating for 2, as well as plenty of storage under the island. The shower room has a toilet, a decent shower and a sink. The captivating views from the windows of the Mazot constantly reminded of your impressive location amongst the Mont Blanc range. Mazot Crozat was recently renovated and is the more modern of the two Mazots. The water is heated from a small gas boiler, it lasts for a couple of decent showers. The small space itself is heated efficiently using electric heaters. It is a true experience to spend time in Mazot Crozat, perfect for mountain lovers looking to immerse themselves in the nature of the valley though not for the faint hearted due to its rural setting.

We loved our stay at Mazot Crozat - it's located right on the slope, near the bottom of the blue Prarion gondola run in Les Houches, which is perfect for snowboarding to and from the slopes and for lunch and walking our dog. The apartment was comfortable and cozy, with a spectacular view of Mont Blanc. The shower was fabulous and the heater in the bathroom was perfect for drying all the snowboarding gear every day. Sitting outside for lunch in the sun was a real treat. I could have stayed forever and hope to return next year. Communication was good with clear instructions online to find the place, which we did easily in the dark! This is exactly our kind of place - unique, quirky and beautiful.
Ideal location, right next to the ski slopes. Perfect for mountain lovers and the view from the chalet is magnificent. The chalet may not be suitable for everyone as it is a bit small and requires careful organization during the stay. At night, you can hear the trucks of the slopes and the artificial snow cannons, but it is mostly a background noise, which did not bother us because we slept very well. The center of the village is close (5 minutes by car) but difficult to reach on foot after snow days. We found good restaurants in the village and there is also a supermarket and everything you need. We absolutely loved this complete ski experience and will definitely go back!
