Chalet Les Frênes

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

FREE BREAKFAST, FREE BIKE HIRE, FREE HOT TUB! The perfect place to spend your winter or summer break. A real Alpine chalet experience for the price of a guesthouse.

The view from the chalet is incredible - the Mont-Blanc massif, glaciers and the highest cable car in Europe, the Aiguille du Midi.

Summer season is when Chalet les Frênes blossoms. You will not even want to venture into town - if you are not too busy relaxing in the garden in the shade of the cherry trees or strolling in the meadows at the foot of the glaciers, you will be eating refreshing salads on the balcony. There are walking trails right on the doorstep and a cyclepath leading to Les Houches in one direction and Chamonix in the other.

Chalet les Frênes is situated in Les Bossons, 4 kms from Chamonix town, equidistant between Les Houches and Brevent ski areas. A free bus offers hassle free transport to and from town and the bus stop is right in front of the chalet!

There is also a night bus service in the evening in the winter but alas not in the summer, we do however have 4 mountain bikes which you can use free of charge.

Ski room entrance is on the ground floor. Ski room leads to 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms through a door and corridor. The bedrooms are roomy twins, 2 of which are south facing. The Ski room has stairs leading up to the first floor where there are 2 bedrooms, the owners' private kitchen, the breakfast area, a bathroom and a toilet. There is no common room although you are welcome to use the terrace and garden .

One double room is good sized and south facing with double doors out onto the balcony. The other room is a good sized twin.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Chalet les Frenes's scenery alone makes up for the rather casual approach to service on the part of the owners. The place really is like heaven and we had the room facing the glacier itself, which was perfect!

Our room was clean and neat, but the promised bike hire and hot tub were apparently not available, as advertised; although this was difficult to determine because the owners were never there to ask about these services, other than when we checked out. The free breakfast consisted of the typical French breakfast and was tasty.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We have had a great stay at the Chalet Les Frenes near Chamonix, France. There was a beautiful view from the room to see the mountains and a warm jacuzzi outside to chill. Phil, the owner of the place, is friendly, helpful and English speaking. The breakfast can get much better but that was the only minor point of our stay. I would recommend this place to anyone thats looking for good price/quality stay in Chamonix.

Great location at the foot of Mount Blanc, a room with a view, well looked after although owner had party one night that went late. Better directions needed on way to Chalet
