Stayed at Chalet Blanche for Feb Half Term week. We had a super week. The chalet is conveniently located close to town, very handy for the Aiguille Du Midi cable car. Helen and Gary looked after us brilliantly. Helen delivered us to our chosen lift every morning after a hearty breakfast cooked by Gary. On our return the cakes waiting in the lounge were some of the best I have had in any chalet. (I have stayed in quite a few over the years.) Our evening meals were brilliant. Gary certainly knows his way around a kitchen and created fantastic food every evening, accompanied by plenty of very pleasant wine. All in all a very good chalet holiday. And the skiing in Chamonix is pretty good as well. Chamonix Peaks 04 Mar 20

Had a fantastic time during half term last week with Helen and Gary. The chalet is very cosy, the food is extremely tasty and their hospitality is second to none. Had a thoroughly enjoyable week and would recommend this chalet indefinitely. Star gazing in the hot tub is a must. Would go back in a heartbeat! Thanks for a wonderful week skiing. Edward.

Thanks Helen and Gary for a brilliant few days away. Chalet is cosy (and not in a small way) and very convenient for the buses to Les Houches and in the other direction with stops within 100m of the end of the drive. H&G are great hosts and the food and wine was brilliant. Gary - I wasn't kidding when I said could I have the recipe for your Tartiflette - tastiest one ever. Thanks for organising the the transfers with Chamonix Valley Transfers who run a very slick service. All the best. Chamonix Peaks 04 Mar 20

Great stay, lovely hosts, highly recommended

I've been organising short break ski trips for my group for 20 years now, and this chalet certainly ranks high in our experience. Gary and Helen are very helpful, and organised the transfers (using the excellent CVT company), ski hire (delivered to the chalet), and passes.

The accommodation is very clean, quiet and extremely well located within 7-10 minutes of the main town centre. The rooms are large by alpine standards, and all with en-suite facilities. I would describe the rooms and chalet as relatively basic and modest in terms of decor and the single beds are quite small. The social area with it's kitchenette is OK, although lacks a little "warmth" in how it is configured, and wasn't really conducive to a cosy night in. A very old fashioned TV, no iPod or Bluetooth audio, and the size don't help. I'd love to see this area "upgraded"!

The food served by Gary was excellent, and decent sized portions. Some good breakfast options, with fresh bread, but perhaps more cooked options would be nice, as well as proper bakery croissants as opposed to self baked versions.

There is a ski storage area, which being with the boiler is nice and warm for drying out boots etc. although with a full house it get's very cramped in there.

We loved the hot tub, which is a great size, and nice that drinks are allowed...nothing better than a cold beer in a hot tub after a long day!

As others have mentioned, Helen was very happy to drop us off at our chosen ski area every day, but there is also a bus that stops right outside. Overall, highly recommended, with excellent hosts!

Just spent Febuary 1/2 term week with Helen and Gary in this great chalet it's location is ideal to get to, we drove to the resort which was simple to find, just near the centre of town and ample parking.

The Ski hires was delivered and collected from the Chalet arranged online before hand and arrived just as we did so no time lost a very good service.

It's ideal to get to all the lifts and the centre of Chamonix as Helen dropped us off in the morning and picked us up with seamless timing with tired legs and ski equipment in the back of the minibus back to the chalet for excellent hospitality and a Cake made fresh by Gary every morning it did not last long with hungry mouths a quick shower or dip in the hot tub with time to relax.

Then we sat down to some of the best food prepared by a very talented chef Gary even looked after my Teenage soon with his picky palet .
Ps the duck is a must.

Nothing was too much trouble a very enjoyable week with family and friends.

Thank You Helen and Gary

Just finished a week of skiing from this fabulous chalet which is extremely spacious. Helen and Gary are excellent hosts going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was particularly good, something for everyone and all our allergens catered for well!
There are plenty of ski areas to choose from kept in great condition, there is something for everyone! Had such a blast, would definitely recommend Chalet Blanche!

Fabulous chalet situated within a short walk from bars and the main high street of Chamonix
Very Comfortable beds, warm and cosy in the chalet

Run by Helen and Gary. The place is very clean. Helen took us to the slopes everyday.
Gary has provided us with lovely breakfasts and fabulous meals all week.
Skis and pass were there on arrival with 40%discount link for the ski hire gear from a local ski shop.
Great Holiday. Would highly recommend

I stayed for a week here in Jan 2020 and there is much to recommend. The chalet is warm and clean and well located within a short walk to bars and restaurants. Helen and Gary are lovely hosts, friendly and helpful: they know the area.
I had some delicious meals and there was a hot tub available every evening, always welcome after a day on Grand Montet. I would go back!

We stayed for New Year with a mixed chalet. Helen went out of her way to ensure we all bonded as a group and had the best time. Working out where to take us to ski each day and joined in and had a laugh. The food Gary cooked was delicious every single night. The chalet was clean and lovely our bedrooms were far more spacious than most in the alps. The modern hot tub was a welcome relief for tired limbs! Centre is within an easy 7 minute flat walk. We had lift passes and ski equipment delivered to the chalet through one of their contacts. Helen will also organise ski transfers. Top marks for our hosts. Chamonix Peaks 23 Jan 20
