Nice apartment and short distance to the center of Chamonix.
Ester Groven, Norway - July 2017 (AirBnB review)
We really enjoyed our first time in Chamonix. The Francotel apartment was ideal for our needs and we had great weather and snow conditions making this a brilliant ski break.

4/5 - “Great chamonix apartment”
This was our first time in Chamonix and we had a great time. The apartment was perfect for our needs, 4 guys on a long skiing weekend. The apartment was clean and well furnished, the bedrooms are on the small side but comfortable, each with access to a balcony (as does the living room/dinning area). There is a good sized ski locker in the entrance hall and the location is a only a shortish walk to the main town with access to the great bar's, restaurants and ski bus / lifts. The Chamonix All Year team did a good job, providing lift passes and ski hire, and sorted out a mix up with passes so when we returned from a night out everything was waiting for us in the apartment. We found the apartment to be good value for money and would definitely return.
