In a medium-sized residence, set in a ski-in ski-out location. In the summer, you can easily access all the walking trails from the apartment. There is also a popular climbing wall and fishing lake just short walk away. The ski area of Les Houches extends from an altitude of 950m to 1900m. From the summit one has a spectacular 360° view of the Mont-Blanc massive. And with 55 km of slopes meandering through the forests, you will discover the real pleasures of skiing. The pistes in Les Houches lie on grassy hillsides, so even if the snow is thin, there is small chance of scraping your skis or boards on rocks. The ski-out is generally open throughout the season thanks to the great snow cannon coverage on the sheltered lower runs, so no queuing for the gondola back down to the village – always a bonus! The slopes at the top of the mountain range from green nursery slopes right through to the famous “Verte” black run used in the Kandahar World Cup skiing! In the summer Les Houches is well known for its mountain biking and its long descents to the valley floor (950-1900m). Trails here range from gentle intermediate to advanced tree and steep gradient runs. A favourite run with locals is the descent from the top of the Prarion gondola down to the village of St Gervais and Le Fayet. There are a number of different options, offering long and exhilarating runs down to the bottom.
Open plan living/dining/kitchen area with sofa bed and TV. Fully equipped kitchen with fridge, small oven and stove. The apartment also benefits from a sunny balcony, bunk beds in the hallway giving you the option to sleep four and an exterior parking space.
The apartment is sold self catered but you can book catering here if needed. Self-catered bookings include linen/towels, end of stay cleaning and local taxe de sejour (tourist tax). You can check in to the apartment between 16:00-22:00 – we might be able to arrange a later check-in but this must be requested in advance (there is a surcharge of €75 for a late check-in).
