Booking & Availability


About your accommodation

Chalet Florence is a magical little Chamonix chalet sleeping 2, nestled in a very private cul-de-sac garden, situated in an elegant residential neighbourhood on the sunny side of the Chamonix valley—a brisk 5 minute walk from downtown Chamonix. Lovingly managed and hosted by Florence, the owner, who lives close by, the chalet offers a totally unique fairytale holiday experience you won't find anywhere else in Chamonix. The romantic location and beautiful garden are serenely relaxing, calm and peaceful. In summer you can only hear the singing of birds while you enjoy your BBQ in the garden whilst gazing up at Mont Blanc. In wintertime at night, you can see the mountain deer that come down to the gardens for their dinner in front of your windows. It is such a magical experience to watch these big wild animals up so close! The chalet has also been awarded the highly coveted 5 Stars appellation by the official French Administration Accreditation Committee (COFRAC).

Chalet Florence is intricately decorated throughout with historic wood carvings, depicting traditional Polish folklore. The chalet was built by a Polish ski jumper who came to Chamonix for the first winter Olympics in 1924 and never left! the chalet also has a host that can offer homemade meals at an extra cost and would need to be pre booked

This fairytale Chamonix chalet will be ready for you when you arrive, with bespoke bed linen, Nespresso capsules and a selection of home-warming treats, made for you by Florence. Not only that, but in summer and autumn you can enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of Florence's organic garden, just outside your door - pick your own salad! Everything you need will be left in the chalet for you, from cleaning products to toilet paper, so that you are in total comfort and can make the most of your relaxing stay. The shared garden is large with uninterrupted views of the Glacier des Bossons and Mont Blanc, and there is teak garden furniture for use on the terrace or the garden, as well as a BBQ.

Beautiful romantic chalet in a wonderful and unique panoramic setting!!
An experience never to be forgotten. A fairy-tale chalet with a spectacular back-drop. Our lovely hostess, Florence, could not do enough to make it a more memorable experience ! The warm welcome from our hostess made us immediately feel at home and relaxed. Every morning, we looked forward to stepping out into the beautiful garden and turning around 180 degrees to take in the grandeur and stunning view of Mont Blanc. This has to be one of the most incredible and scenic locations within the Chamonix/ Mont Blanc valley. The chalet was perfect with all mod cons including wifi, while at the same time, having a unique old-world charm with its ornate and amazing wood carvings. Our thanks go to our wonderful hostess for her help and advice on what to see and do in the local area. We would never have found some of the beautiful places and restaurants without her guidance . For anyone, looking for a holiday to remember, this would be our premier recommendation. Thank you Florence for everything !!! Love and best wishes, Lieve and Ken

Un séjour de rêve dans un lieu magique
Après avoir séjourné une semaine au ravissant mazot Florence, nous avons prolongé de quelques jours notre séjour dans le chalet Florence.
Le chalet est superbe et très spacieux. Il est parfaitement entretenu et d’une propreté irréprochable. L’intérieur est raffiné et confortable, la décoration très belle et de bon goût. La vue à 360° est magnifique.
Le chalet est à 5minutes à pied du centre ville. L’endroit est très calme.
Le séjour est très beau et intimiste avec de nombreux éclairages tout doux. Vous pourrez y lire de nombreux livres de montagnes.
Les portes et panneaux en bois sculptés donnent un charme sans égal à cet intérieur douillet.
La chambre est très grande avec de nombreux rangements. La literie taille XL est très confortable et les nuits sont douces et paisibles. La salle de bains est elle aussi spacieuse et fonctionnelle. Le linge de maison est doux et soyeux.
La cuisine est parfaitement équipée, la vaisselle est raffinée, tout l’équipement est de qualité.
La buanderie à disposition est très appréciable et permet d’alléger ses bagages.
A l’extérieur c’est tout aussi joli, le jardin amoureusement entretenu, les massifs arborés et fleuris l’entourent. Un jardin bio vient compléter ce décor bucolique. Quel plaisir de déguster une salade tout juste coupée et agrémentée d’aromates du jardin ! Vous pourrez aussi faire un barbecue. Tout est prévu est bien étudié chez Florence..
Florence est aux petits soins et très attentionnée, elle saura vous conseiller pour vos sorties si vous le souhaitez. Elle accepte vos petits compagnons à 4 pattes qui aurons eux aussi des amis avec l’adorable Ficelle et les minettes Pupuce et Mina.
Quand votre séjour se terminera, vous serez triste de quitter cet endroit magique et aussi de quitter Florence qui est si attachante et adorable et peut être comme nous vous verserez quelques larmes.
Mais nous reviendrons, nous avons maintenant trouvé notre endroit à Chamonix, ce sera chez Florence et nous rêvons déjà de venir cet hiver.

Una splendida vacanza a chamonix. Chalet florence e' stupendo, i dettagli sono curati nei minimi particolari. L'accoglienza di florence e indimenticabile come il suo splendido giardino con i fiori, le erbe le verdure. Lo chalet e un'opera d'arte con incisioni, bassorilievi di legno e ogni confort.

"Beautiful charming chalet, 5 stars, 2 steps from downtown”
A Slice of Heaven
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Let me just say that Heaven would never be Heaven without a trip to Chalet Florence in Chamonix. This place is like a First Kiss. In our many travels throughout Europe, I can truly say few places on Earth, like Chalet Florence offer so much love, beauty, peace and friendship. Our lovely host and now friend forever, Florence, has created a little Heaven on Earth. The connections we make in the course of our travels and life on this planet is perhaps what Heaven is to some. Chalet Florence is and was this Slice of Heaven for us. A stellar location, an endearing host, and an amazing home like you never left, awaits. Needless to say, Heaven does exist; Chalet Florence is a place to be, a place to refresh your senses and enjoy the complete experience of Heavenly Hospitality.

Simply Beautiful
We cannot say enough nice things about our stay in Florence’s chalet. From the time we arrived until we left, Florence made sure that everything was taken care of. The chalet was beautifully furnished and had views of Mont Blanc that are out of this world. We had considered several other places before choosing this one and are so glad we did. In the evenings, its very quiet and away from the noise of downtown Chamonix. However, the shops/restaurants in Chamonix are just a short walk away, which we walked to nearly everyday. The hiking nearby was challenging and offered great views of alps.

Look no further if you want a quaint, quiet, little chalet with wonderful views and an amazing hostess. Florence truly took care of everything. We were even fortunate enough to share dinner with her one evening, which was very enjoyable to hear more about the history of Chamonix and her chalets. I hope that we’ll be able to visit Chamonix again and if we do, we’ll definitely be staying in this chalet again!

La parenthèse féérique
Ce petit chalet est un bijou d'orfèvrerie, tout y est d'un gout exquis : la vaisselle, le linge de maison, la décoration... La propreté est irréprochable. Niché bien à l'abri, face au Mont Blanc, c'est un havre de paix aux parfums épicés. C'est notre deuxième séjour et nous planifions déjà notre prochain... Comment ne pas apprécier l'accueil sans égal de Florence ? Toujours à l'écoute, elle vous accompagne avec son sourire, ses petites attentions... et toujours avec tact et discrétion. Vos compagnons à quatre pattes sont les bienvenus, ils seront accueillis par Ficelle et la jolie Pupuce... En cinq minutes à pieds, vous êtes en ville où les commerces rivalisent d'originalité... Nous sommes impatients de revenir au printemps pour y découvrir les bonnes choses du potager, entretenu avec amour... Il y a dans ce lieu quelque chose de magique... Nul part ailleurs vous ne pourrez côtoyer chaque soir une biche et son faon qui viennent se restaurer à la porte du chalet... Le paradis ? Il est ici, à Chamonix.

Pinch me
It is a dream. A fantasy come true. We spent three glorious months in Snow White’s cottage where the Seven Dwarves had spent their lives preparing for our stay instead of digging the mine. No wonder Chalet Florence is rated FIVE STARS by France’s official Accreditation Committee.

From bottom to top, you live in a comfortable work of art—doors, shutters, beams and furniture are hand-carved masterpieces by artisans of ages past—a living, cozy memento that breathes its origins as can never be duplicated. And yet—here is another amazing part—the chalet contains a generous abundance of modern world conveniences close at hand, beautifully and lovingly incorporated throughout its nooks and crannies, tastefully living in harmony with tradition. It’s a joyous experience. Next, multiply all of that by the private, quiet garden setting, nestled beneath snowy Mont Blanc in the most stunningly beautiful, spectacularly gorgeous spot on earth, and you have Chalet Florence. Almost. We cannot forget to include the perfectly amiable, knowledgeable, kind and discreet hostess seemingly known to all, Florence herself. Take a curtsey, Madame.

Put all of this together, then, within a few refreshing and scenic steps from the downtown Chamonix walking street, and voilà—you’re beginning to understand the real-life dream come true waiting for you in Chalet Florence.

“Un petit nid douillet”
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Un véritable cocon pour passer des vacances proches du centre de Chamonix et des remontées mécaniques. Tout est accessible à pied ou par bus ou train afin de bénéficier de cette magnifique vallée.
Un chalet tout équipé ou rien ne manque : vaisselle raffinée, linge de maison, décorations de Noël, buanderie.
Un accueil très chaleureux de Florence la propriétaire qui se plie en quatre afin de réaliser vos moindres souhaits.
Nous avons découvert avec elle des endroits ou nous n'aurions pas été tout seul.
Le chalet à l'intérieur est magnifique, typique montagne avec des portes en bois sculpté et d'une propreté irréprochable.
Nous reviendrons avec plaisir repasser des vacances chez Florence.
De plus, ce qui est rare de nos jours dans les locations les animaux sont acceptés et choyés.

Lovely, cozy cabin in beautiful Chamonix
We had a wonderful stay at this charming chalet. It is located within walking distance to the main shopping/dining area in Chamonix on a quiet street. The chalet itself is very clean and impeccably decorated. Florence was a gracious host, providing excellent tips on things to do. Our dog was very much welcomed by her. We would definitely stay here again.

Our Alps vacation was truly a dream vacation!!
We found Chalet Florence on this site...Florence was a dream to deal with from the first email I sent. She sent us all kinds of information, provided many suggestions on things to do, she reached out to her contacts to get us set up with heli-skiing, she provided weather updates leading up to our departure, fabulous directions and was waiting for us when we finally arrived - with a big French welcome hug! (we'd become very close email friends during the few weeks leading up and it was lovely to finally meet in real life!). The Chalet was our home away from home for the entire week. Florence showed us all the details of the Chalet and we had a welcome pkg waiting for us - homemade jam, yummy French wine and a few others things. The bed was SO comfy, if it weren't for the Alps calling our names it would have been so easy to stay in the Chalet and be cozy all week. We had a nice big tub to come home to soak in after our days on the mountain. Yummy nespresso each morning and even friendly neighbours to help push our car out of the snow the morning we got stuck :) The Chalet is perfectly located a nice, easy 5 minute walk to town. We arrived late in the evening and we weren't sure we'd make it to the grocery store in time to buy supplies for breakfast - when we woke up that morning, Florence left us eggs, butter and bread from her own personal kitchen. Chamonix is beautiful and everything is so close to walk to from the Chalet. We had a rental car and discovered that Italy was a short 20mins drive thru the tunnel and so that made our adenturing even more amazing. We skiied a different mountain every day and mother nature even decided to dump huge amounts of snow on us - it snowed for 36 hours straight! Thanks to Florence no doubt, I had asked her to speak to the snow gods for us and ensure lots of powder for our vacation!! On the last day of our vacation we finally had crystal clear blue skies and we finally made it up in the helicopter - AMAZING!!! And for the grand finale of the trip, we were finally visited by Florence's 'pet' deer! She had spoken about the deer and I was very excited to see...and she finally came on our last night to bid us farewell. We watched her eat right in front of the chalet window and Florence came out and the two of them put on a little show for us - Florence was speaking to her and called her over for more food and the deer actually followed her, I have no idea what Florence said to her, as it was all in French!!
