About your accommodation

Chalet Jean is a spacious, self-catered, luxury ski chalet in the prime Alpine ski area of Les Houches. It has been recently renovated to the highest standard and with its glorious, panoramic views over the surrounding mountains, it is the perfect place for family and friends to come together to experience the wonders of Chamonix. With 370sqm of floor space and balcony areas, the chalet has been finished to the highest of standards and boasts 5 bedrooms, a spacious games room/bedroom 6, plus a cosy kids’ bunk room, sleeping up to 14 people in total. There are 5 bathrooms, 3 of which are en-suite, and 2 separate toilets.

Despite its idyllic, secluded, South-facing position, high speed internet means that visitors to Chalet Jean can remain connected – if they want to! Flat screen televisions, Apple TV, DVD library and a Sonos music system all ensure that the party goes with a swing throughout the stay. The large open plan living room, with its roaring log fire, is perfect for après ski get togethers, and the well equipped kitchen along with its generous dining table, provides everything required for convivial holiday entertaining in a luxury ski chalet. Chalet Jean's hot tub is discretely located on the outside terrace and is perfect for a romantic rendez-vous under the stars, but at the same time, roomy enough for a party of five! For visitors with children, the spacious ground floor playroom is invaluable. A large box of toys and games, table tennis table and TV all mean that the little ones can have their own fun. Furthermore, two single beds in this space provide additional accommodation for extra large parties.

Fantastic Chalet in a beautiful Location
Loved the chalet, inside it looked just like the online pictures. There were 8 of us staying in it and we had loads of room. Beds and rooms were comfortable with plenty of bathrooms. Fantastic kitchen and facilities. A definite home from home. Great location within 5 minutes walking distance to the Prarion Chairlift and 10 minutes to the nearest restaurant/bar. We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely stay here again. Only issue we had was with the outside area which could have had more up to date furniture for the summer months. There were no sunbeds although these were shown on the pictures. Chamonixallyear did bring us 2 of their own when we asked for some though. It was also extremely hot at night although I guess that wouldn't be a problem in the winter months. The Hot Tub was spotless and well maintained.

Thank you for your review of your stay in Chalet Jean. We are very pleased that you found everything that you needed and enjoyed the elevated location in Les Houches. Unfortunately the chalet doesn't have sun loungers anymore so we have removed these photos from the site, but we are glad that we could help provide some for you. We do hope we'll see you again in the future.

Fantastic chalet for a family ski trip
We were very pleased with Chalet Jean and the Camonix All Year team. Gorgeous Chalet, loads of space for 6 adults and 7 kids, beds and sofas super comfy and location ideal. Can't recommend highly enough!

Lovely spacious chalet
Chalet Jean worked really well for our 3 family group, the kids loved the massive playroom and everywhere felt so airy and spacious. Very good value for money and definitely worth a visit!

A fabulous family holiday in Les Houches
Prior to arriving at Chalet Jean, Chamonix All Year provided all of the information that we needed in order to get our kids first ski trip off to a flying start...... lessons, transport and resort info was all sorted with no fuss. Alas the snow wasn't quite so forthcoming, but the sun shone and made for a stunning vacation nonetheless.We had 3 generations of family convening from US, Singapore, UK and Hungary, so arranging their unflustered and timely arrival is no mean feat.On arrival, it was lovely to meet the chalet owners on the staircase. If only in an abundance of holiday photos, it was very nice to feel their watchful gaze throughout, and welcome them into our family holiday. They look like a smashing bunch.The chalet has a huge amount of space. Set over three floors, with kids play space, storage and bedrooms on the lower level, living and kitchen on the mid-level and bedrooms up above, it provided a perfect layout for our three generations. We put the elders up above in rooms with balconies with stunning views to afford them a peaceful retreat from the noisy onslaught of children. The kids, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and ourselves all stayed in relative comfort on the lower floor. Storage isn't generous, but the level of comfort is exactly what I would expect for the money that we paid.The only accommodation complaints appertain to heat. There is no heater in the bunk room , so our nanny had to move out because she was too cold. The storage heaters throughout (especially bedrooms where they are exposed) are extremely hot to touch, which could've posed a problem to the kids, and we ran out of hot water on several occasions (this was easily fixed by flipping the water heaters on to constant, but worth noting if you're to stay there).The living space had a Sonos system and Apple TV for entertainment, but be careful to sign out prior to leaving. The Sky TV didn't work, although that was no compromise for us.The location is polarising, and will need to be carefully considered based on your personal circumstances. The Prarion lift is a very short walk down the hill, and is great for beginners. Buses run throughout the day through Les Houches to Chamonix, Les Praz and Argentiere, but they stop early evening so don't expect to be lovin' the apres and beyond without a long trek home. This was fine for us in this instance, but not good if you want a night out or an escape from your travel companions.There is a beautiful little restaurant in Les Houches (La Ferme Des Agapes), approx 15 minutes walk away, but the chalet location is quite remote without transport. The supermarket is at the opposite end of Les Houches, a few km away. Chamonix is impossible to get cabs, so be prepared to drive to your destination or stay put.All things considered this was a fantastic holiday. Well organised and a great debut for our little kids, but the skiing played second fiddle (entirely due to the lack of snow) so we didn't have to rely on multiple daily trips on local public transport to Chamonix and beyond. The chalet space was vast and allowed for the twelve of us to play or escape each other as moods required. I'd definitely recommend it as a great affordable spot to get a sprawling family together.

Thank you for your lovely detailed review of your family stay in Chalet Jean. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed such a successful family reunion, and it was our pleasure to help you organise your lessons, transport and everything else you needed. We are working hard with the owner to replace the Sky TV with another solution for English channels and will see if there is a way to install a heater in the bunk room, although space is very tight in here. We do hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Chalet Jean, fantastic place!
Beautiful property in a great location we had a great holiday with family and friends. Perfect for large groups with kids. The games room and the hot tub is brilliant after a cold day in February to warm up!

Could be perfect......
We stayed here as a family group of 10. Overall it was good, but could have been excellent with a few finishing touches-for example; a chalet for up to 14 people and only 1 small single oven?? Generally I would say the kitchen was not well equipped (Only 6 wine glasses when we arrived-quickly sorted, but unecessary). As advertised, flat acreen TVs in several bedrooms......but no way to connect them to power or aerial!!! (pointless). Better instructions for the hot tub. Advertised as having a Playstation.......but none there (disappointed kids). More hangers for clothes. Bunk room ridiculously small (better used as a food store as nowhere in kitchen to put any food). Not enough power points for charging things (and no hairdryer for the ladies). Finally, why not charge slightly more and provide towels for the hot tub as having to bring towels with you for a 'luxury' chalet is ridiculous!

Thank you for your review of Chalet Jean. We will pass on your feedback on the chalet to the owners in case they are looking to make any improvements in the future; as each of our chalets is individually owned the owners do furnish and finish them personally. We hope that future guests interested in staying at Chalet Jean will see that the TVs in the bedrooms are not advertised on our website as we know that they are not connected, and the small bunk read is described as such. We hope that you enjoyed your Christmas stay with us and that we might see you back in Chamonix again in the future.


Abbiamo passato in 12 un fantastico Capodanno nello Chalet Jean. Il posto è veramente molto bello, la zona living è spaziosa e accogliente, la cucina ampia ci ha permesso di preparare senza problemi il cenone per 12 persone. Lo Chalet è situato vicino (400m a piedi) dagli impianti che con innevamento adeguato sono raggiungibili anche con gli sci. Su 5 camere solo una non è il massimo perchè con una piccola finestra e senza armadio.

5/5 - “Very nice and functional chalet with perfect lacation”
It is very nice and functional chalet with perfect lacation. You will have all you need. It is not luxury, but it is good enough for its price.
This review was originally posted on Tripadvisor - January 2015


Beautiful chalet in a quiet location with great views - ideal if you have your own transport. Easy (summer) walk down to the local Patisserie & Prarion Bubble, only 10min drive into Chamonix.
Adam Price, UK – July 2014

On our 10 visit to the Chamonix valley, we were looking for a modern layout in a chalet to sleep 14 (12 adults 2 children).
Having had previous exceptional chalets with Chamonix All Year referring to their web site produced another great chalet this time in Les Houches Lower than Chamonix we weren't sure, however what a surprise Chalet Jean is a fantastic chalet, very well appointed with a great family lounge, modern kitchen, excellent bedrooms and enough bathrooms for a large group.
The views are exceptional and the chalet is in easy reach of the key lifts to the top of Les Houches. From the top you can access the whole ski area of Les Houches, which turned out to provide surprising and excellent skiing.
The access to the Chalet is via easy situated off a main road with a shared entrance and enough parking for 5 or 6 vehicles.
The drive will need clearing if the snow is heavy, and snow chains or winter tyres are advisable.
Hot tub adds to the whole Chalet Jean experience.
Only additions that would help is in the drying room, we would suggest a heated boot drying rack as they don't dry out fully over night.
Chamonix All Year go that extra mile to help with any requirements, so returning to Chamonix with them and staying at Chalet Jean, well both come highly recommended.
Thanks from 14 very happy guests
