Located a 10-minute drive from Argentière, The Guest House features a garden, views of the mountains, and massages on demand. It is just a 10-minute walk from Vallorcine and Le Tour ski elevators. The guest house felt to me like a little paradise very beautiful and peaceful away from the crowd. Helen is a most kind host and made us feel very welcomed. Breakfast is excellent. We used the shared kitchen. For us the guest house was a very good place to start hiking in the mountains. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to come again.
Located in Chamonix, Chalet Victoire provides garden views and free WiFi, 7 miles from Chamonix Ski School and 13 miles from Step Into the Void. + perfect view of the glacier and even falls!!! + all equipped kitchen (incl. oven, microwave) + super clean + nice and kind staff (you can communicate with cellphone because he's not there.) + so close to Le Tour gondola station (easy to get the multipass from there)
Liked the small quiet village, stunning views of the mountains all around, limited but good restaurants/bars all a bit expensive, the 3 Bears the most expensive. The "free" (hotel pass) train along the valley a great boon, Agentier only minutes away with a SuperU, bars, etc. Piste and lift management not very cleaver, caught on Tete de Balme chair lift with instructor when the expected gale struck (50+mph wind). I was frozen by the time we got to the top, total white out and could not find the piste down, eventually made it to Telecabin. Suffered hypothermia exhaustion, nausea, dizzyness, etc. They knew it was coming (the instructor thought the lifts would be closed) and should have closed the lift earlier.
Whilst Vallorcine was quiet there are some lovely restaurants to choose from L'Ours was a favourite for the whole family. The train is easy and convenient for Argentie and Chamonix if you want something busier, it was free with tickets from the hotel.
Vallorcine was quaint, if a little sleepy. The resort was perfect for a family with children. Restaurant reservations are greatly advised as we missed one restaurant we wanted to return to - Le Cafe Comptoir - it was lovely. Vallorcine was extremely easy to get to, driving from Geneva, which made the start of the trip very stress free. We were able to check in a little early which was handy, and were quickly told some great places to eat and visit. The kids never got bored as they could go swimming or ice skating in the evenings. They could also have done snow tubing - but we didn't get round to it.
nice location, but staff is unfriendly and rude. This is like a military camp rather than hotel. They treat you not like a guest but like a new recruit who has to learn things...and on top they are bad mannered. I am hoping the gods of capital economy will soon teach them the truth, that they have to be competitive....:)
Pretty, reliable snow, quick access to slopes (by cable car). No nightlife - which suits us and our dog. 2 or 3 local restaurants serving reasonable food. Station is 200 metres away with trains to Argentiere and Chamonix, with World Class ski-ing and restaurants. We drive from U.K. with one overnight stop near Lyon - 10 hours from Calais, all Motorway until Chamonix.
A hidden gem! Some lovely restaurants but not many so be sure to book! Once there everything within walking distance. Train very handy if needed Fabulous skiing. Enough to do for 2-3 days on the slopes
The guest house is situated in the beautiful valley of Vallorcine, close by Chamonix. The nature is very beautiful, with hiking trails starting right by the guest house. From the start it was a warm welcome by the son of the host. We immediately felt at home away from home. When asking for tips (eating, hiking, etc) Helen would always come up with a perfect plan. Not to mention the absolutely stunning breakfast, what a treat. We absolutely enjoyed our stay to the fullest and can’t wait to come back!
A great resort, close to Chamonix and to all beautiful mountains around! Great for families!
