A wonderful farmhouse and apartment situated in an ideal location with ski in facilities. Excellent bakery and restaurants nearby with a superb bus service into Chamonix for a little something extra. However best part must be Rob and Suzanne who are truly wonderful hosts and are happy to help and share information about the surrounding area! Thank you again xx
Just back from a fantastic week of skiing and already talking about booking again for next year but staying in the farmhouse. We stayed in apartment Joy which is in an ideal location between restaurants and 2ski lifts in Les Houches, with only a few minutes walk to all. Apartment Joy has all that you need and would be best suited for a couple or a small group of friends (sleeps 4). Communication with Rob and Suzanne was fantastic with regards to booking, answering any questions or queries, and we were warmly greeted by Ruth on our arrival, who couldn't have been more helpful. Roll on 2015.
There is only one word for this holiday home, PERFECTION! We enjoyed a week staying in appartment Joy from 26th July to 2nd August. This area is just as beautiful in the summer as in the winter and very warm too! On our one rainy day we took the bus to Chamonix and enjoyed the shops and a lovely lunch. Les Houches and surrounding towns and villages provide excellent views of the mountains and some lovely restaurants and bars can be found. We were provided with a bus and train pass so only used the car for a day trip to Anercy, which incidentally should not be missed. Walking to the cable cars is such a luxury and you can be on an alpine walk in a matter of minutes after leaving your front door! Seven wonderful days passed too soon and we are already planning our next visit, this time renting the larger farmhouse with the whole family. Also, Ross and Pernilla, our hosts were wonderful. 5 star appartment, 5 star hosts and a location which just can't be beaten!
The Alpine Retreat is in the heart of the Les Houches ski area. You can get to and from two lifts in seconds. The accommodation is comfortable and warm and Rob & Suz are outstanding hosts. Having been here for five weeks in winter and a week in summer I would not hesitate to recommend!
We stayed in the smaller apartment in this lodging, "apartment Joy". Designed to accommodate two people but capable of sleeping 4 or more this apartment is made by its location. The view from the garden is superb. The bedroom is a reasonable size for what is a small apartment and is furnished with a comfortable bed. The main room has in addition two bunk beds and a sofa bed. Dining table and a kitchen complete the main room. Shower and toilet facilities are small but adequate. The apartment feels cool in summer and I am sure will be warm in winter. The lighting left something to be desired but I understand improvements are in hand. Satellite TV and a DVD player are available along with WiFi. Within walking distance of the Bellevue Cable Car and the Prarion Gondola lift system along with bars and restaurants this location cannot be bettered.
