Pres des Cimes is a charming traditional chalet with an enviable ski in/ski out location - a rarity in the Chamonix valley. Sitting adjacent to the home run piste of the Prarion ski area, the chalet is 2.5km by road down to the lift station where you’ll also find a boulangerie, cafe, bar and ski hire shops. With an elegant interior and breathtaking views of Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks, Pres des Cimes is an idyllic mountain retreat. Please note that it is advisable to have a car in this location, with snow chains during the winter season.

Key features

  • Ski in and ski out access via the Aillouds blue piste which connects to the Prarion Lift
  • Spacious garden and terrace with outdoor dining furniture and views of Mont Blanc
  • Open log fireplace for cosy, atmospheric winter evenings
  • Plenty of entertainment for evenings in with Free WiFi, UK TV, DVD player & Bose sound system
  • Exterior parking for up to three cars

The chalet sleeps up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms. There is a maximum of 8 separate beds available, configured as follows:

  • Bedroom 1: Flexible double or twin room (ground floor) with en-suite shower room with WC
  • Bedroom 2: Flexible double or twin room (ground floor) with access to a shared bathroom with WC

  • Bedroom 4: Flexible double or twin room (first floor) with en-suite bathroom with WC

Our opinion

If you were to imagine a mountain chalet, Pres des Cimes would be it. The quiet, elevated location and spectacular views make this property particularly special. The spacious terrace is a wonderful place to take in the views and enjoy your meals alfresco in the summer or a glass of vin chaud in the winter. Having a ski in and ski out location and fully flexible bedrooms, Pres des Cimes is popular with both families and groups of friends alike.

Location

Pres des Cimes borders on the pistes of les Houches, offering a genuine ski in/ski out location, a rarity in the Chamonix Valley. Being further up the mountain, the chalet catches the sun most of the day, even in winter, and offers fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding peaks. The nearest restaurants and bars of note are in the Bellevue area of les Houches, notably the Hotel Slalom, Le Spot and Kitsch Inn. It is 3.2 kms by car, just over a 5 minute drive. In summer, it is possible to walk to Bellevue via Chemin de Bonnet, a little over 1 km away (15 minutes on foot). The nearest supermarket is the Carrefour Market in les Houches centre itself, past the Bellevue lift, and there are also 2 bakeries. Chamonix town and the many facilities it has to offer are 15 minutes away by car (12 kms). As such, please note that it is recommended to have a car in this location to get to the different ski areas, les Houches centre and Chamonix town.
