Best Family holiday to date
We have a 4 and a 2 year old and this apartment really did feel like a home away from home, it was the perfect location - just on the edge of the main central streets so quiet yet close enough to amenities. We would definitely holiday here again as the apartment was perfect.

Very well located apartment easy to all buses and Town center.
Apartment was well equipped and very good location. Suited to 4 people rather than six as advertised. Company was very organised through the booking process and providing information information on arrival. If there were any criticism, it is only minor, it would be the company should have got in contact mid week to make sure there was no issues.

Lovely quiet apartment within walking distance of Chamonix centre
Beautifully maintained apartment -quiet location but close to chamonix town centre. Comfy beds, great power shower and all facilities in good working order. Small balcony in full sunshine late afternoon ideal for a quiet drink after a busy day. Close to all facilities such as bus,train and supermarket. Intend to return.

Snowy February half term
The property is located within a few minutes walk of the town centre which is perfect. The underground parking was a real bonus as parking along the road can be tight and the volume of snow would have resulted in many hours preparing the car before we went anywhere. We were a team of 6 and 2 dogs and the apartment was plenty big enough for the time we spent there. They have netflix and wifi which was great after a day on the slopes. Chamonix All Year were really helpful and were available for all queries. I would go back and stay at the apartment and use CAY again.

Apatement was not in a good condition.
The apt was really not clean, the oven was very, very durty. During 3 days it was very cold in the apt. We had to constantly use the small heating that we had. All the doors going the balcony could not be closed properly. Cold air was coming from outside!! We had to call a few times as the keys where not working at the beginning and also because of the heating. Have to say that the people on the phone and the "concierge where very nice and tried to help us.

Thank you for your review of Francotel Apartment. We are sorry to hear that you didn't find the apartment clean, our housekeeping manager has checked the oven and it was deep cleaned before your stay, but there is some residue trapped between the glass in the door. We will pass on your other feedback to the owner. Thank you for your lovely feedback about our Resort Team too. We hope to see you again soon in Chamonix.

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.

Free wifi and a small stereo were the extras we appreciated.
Luke Low, France – July 2014
The Francotel apartment dealt with all our needs for a short break, well-located apartment in Chamonix. The Chamonix All Year team were excellent and the information both prior and during our stay was clear and concise.
Joanna Berry, UK – March 2014

The accommodation was great and we were very impressed.
Lisa Moran - Australia. December 2011

A really nice apartment situated in a nice area of Chamonix, only a short walk from the main street, restuarant, bars, shops etc. Friendly town with a nice friendly welcome. Overall excellent holiday.

Hi Nick, I would like to thank you and your staff for our fantastic stay in Chamonix. The apartment was excellent (clean, well kitted out and comfortable) and we hope to return next year.

We all had a great time thanks, apart from a couple of injuries on the slopes! Thanks for sorting everything out for us.
