Latitude: 45.92138
Longitude: 6.85670

Le Cretet 2 apartment is located in the lovely quiet, elevated Les Moussoux area of Chamonix town centre. The Chamonix apartment is 10 minutes' walk from Brevent ski lift and has stunning views of the Chamonix valley, Mont Blanc and the Glacier des Bossons. The walk into the heart of the town centre takes 15 minutes (20-25 on the way back up the hill!) to the restaurants, bars and shops. The nearest large supermarket is about 25 minutes away, or 10 minutes in the car. Active visitors to Chamonix will love the brisk walks up and down the hill, but families with small children or less mobile visitors may prefer to have a car for ease of getting around.

Please note that if you are driving in winter, you should ensure that your car has snow tyres and snow chains as the hill is quite steep.

Great for two people
No hire car so we walked up and down the hill several times but if you're on a walking holiday its no problem as you just get used to it. The views are excellent, nice small private garden area and out of the way looking over the rooftops of Chamonix. Virtually on the petit balcon sud so good to start walks from without going into town. Perfect for two but would be a squeeze for four people. Everything else fine, all utensils, heating, water, shower etc no problem.

Spectacular views from compact apartment with great garden.
This was our second stay in Cretet 2 as we had such a great time there last year. The apartment is a bit of a hike up a hill out of central Chamonix but you soon get used to it and it's really close to the Brevent/Planpraz telecabine station.The apartment is perfect for a couple, but could sleep more as there is great sofa bed in the living room. It has all the facilities you could imagine for a fairly small flat, including a good washing machine and plenty of kitchen equipment. We will definitely be booking again, hopefully in 2020!The garden benefits from one of the best views we've seen from an apartment of the Mont Blanc massif.Staff at Chamonix All Year were as helpful and efficient as ever - making the booking process and airport transfers fairly effortless!Thanks again CAY.

View of Mont Blanc outstanding
We loved staying at this apartment and to be honest with a view like that from your elevated position in the valley we would of forgiven any any flaws in the accommodation. What’s frustrating is that the quality of the apartment could so easily go from an 8/10 to a 10/10 with a few relatively inexpensive tweaks. The internal doors all need a lick of paint as they look a little shabby, the hall wardrobe definitely needs a door (it would look less cluttered & stop cooking smells getting in your clothes), and the ironing board needs fixing/replacing. These are really minor things which I wouldn’t usually even bother mentioning it’s just the apartment is so good we wanted it to be the best it could be. Had great service from Chamonix All Year and would definitely book through them again and would return to Le Cretet 2.

Best view in Chamonix
The apartment is cosy, looks as if it had been refurbished a few years ago and have everything you need for a couple of weeks stay. It is a 10 min uphill walk from the city center and the area is quiet and has no traffic. But the best part is the view. The apartment has the perfect, unblocked view of the entire Mont Blanc massif that you can enjoy both from the dinner table and from the spacious terrace.

Perfect little apartment with a spectacular view
Just back from a week in Chamonix staying at Cretet 2. This is a great little apartment, perfect for two people (or more with the sofa bed) in the most spectacular setting with an amazing view of the Mont Blanc massif. It's up a pretty steep hill though, so shopping on foot can be a bit strenuous! Everything we needed was in the apartment and the small garden area was a wonderful way to enjoy the sunshine and view after a day of hiking.Very handy for the Planpraz/Brevent cable car too (only about 5-10 mins walk), and the Aiguille du Midi train station is very close.Thanks again to Chamonix all Year for the excellent customer service and attentiveness.Hoping to be back again next summer for a longer stay!

Unrivalled view
This small apartment is perfect for two people. It is well equipped, including washing machine, hair dryer, iron, etc. It has a lovely little terrace where you can sit and admire the view of the glacier. The view is the real asset of this apartment. It is located on one of the highest roads in chamonix centre, at the end of a steep walk/drive. This didn't bother us too much as you can walk to and from the centre, but you need comfortable shoes.

Location and view
Fantastic location, just a short walk from restaurants and shops. Absolutely stunning views, nice little garden and deck with comfortable lounge chairs. We were two adults and two teenagers which worked fine because of the outdoor space, but would probably feel cramped if visiting in winter. Helpful staff.

Lovely apartment with fabulous views
This is a fabulously located apartment, just outside Chamonix with stunning views over to the Bossons glacier and Mont Blanc. The walk from the town centre is up a steep hill, but if you're staying in Chamonix for mountain activities, you'll be fit already! The apartment is very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. Would definitely recommend and will return.

Revisiting Chamonix
We have been to Chamonix several times for a walking holiday. We love this apartment because of the views and it it is very quiet. We are fit older people which is important because we choose not to hire a car and walk up and down to Chamonix the whole time. It takes half an hour to walk back up the steep hill. The photos of the apartment are inaccurate as the bathroom and toilet have been recently redecorated, new carpet in the sitting room etc. The apartment has everything we need. We recommend Le Bon Prin Auberge just ten minutes down the hill which has fantastic food. Further we went to restaurants down in Chamonix. We took the train to start walks etc. It is very near the cable car.

Superb, spacious apartment with the most amazing views!
The apartment is in a superb/tranquil location, just 8 minutes walk to the Brevent main ski lift. This also links directly to the La Flegere skiing area so was nice not to have to catch the bus! There is a steep hill coming back from town, but we enjoyed having a brisk walk home. Obviously a car would have made it easier! However, we did have a fantastic meal in the rather special hotel -L’Auberge du Bois Pin just a few minutes walk from the apartment. A very well equipped and bright apartment, the real bonus being the private garden (not overlooked) with a direct view of Mont Blanc. Felt very spacious for a one bedroom apartment with lots of storage for all our ski equipment. Would love to come again!

Disappointed
The location marker by booking.com, through whom we booked, showed the apartment to be in the centre of Chamonix. We were therefore very disappointed to find ourselves out of town, by some way, up a very steep hill. The whole point of booking this apartment was the location. Chamonix All Year offered us a 20% discount by way of compensation but it turned out that booking taxis in Chamonix is not as simple as you would think. When we phoned the office for some help we were given a list of taxi numbers but only when we pressed did they offer to take us to our apartment "on this occasion". We then found, by our own efforts, a fab taxi driver and we used him for the rest of our stay. The cost of a taxi to the town centre was 15 Euros. Down in the morning, back after skiing, down to dinner, back after dinner, that's 60 Euros a day on taxis AND inconvenient. Our 20% was soon gobbled up. When we went to the office at the end of our stay, we weren't even acknowledged (we changed in their offices) and certainly no-one asked if we had enjoyed our stay or apologised for the problem. We were told that the booking.com link had been corrected. I've just checked - it's still showing as being in the centre of town. Whilst mistakes happen we were very disappointed by the care shown by the team after the event and would not recommend this company to anyone. The APARTMENT, if you want out of town was fine ...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you were disappointed in the location of the apartment and we are working with Booking.com to update the location marker on their site but unfortunately these changes take time to go through. We hope that future guests will look at the other positive reviews we have for Le Cretet 2 apartment, particularly regarding the location which many view a great advantage of the property, with the spectacular views that it offers of Mont Blanc and the Glacier des Bossons.

What a view!
Staying in the apartment for a week in July 2015, we were greet by one of the team in a friendly manor and she ran through everything we needed to know. It could do with a lick of paint here and there but it was a very nice apartment for the price and had everything you could possibly need in it. What was the best thing about it? The view is amazing and the apartment is in a great location.

Great views, but could do with some TLC
1) deck area is in poor state; we all (inc baby) got a lot of splinters, 2) the main bed is very very creaky/noisy, so much so that it woke the baby when we rolled over. So bad that my partner had to sleep in the lounge to avoid waking baby. Sofa bed in lounge was terrible from a comfort perspective 3) I would expect an apartment which sleeps 2-4 to have a minimum of 4 place settings. This apartment had only 3 bowls (so we had to wash up after using them for lunch main course before we could use them for dessert); it had only 3 wine glasses, and only 1 tall glass!! At +30 degrees C drinking from an eggcup/thimble sized glass is not going to keep anyone hydrated! 4) there is an iPod dock, but not from this decade - useless for an iPhone 5 This said, the view from the apartment is fabulous.

Thank you for your review of Le Cretet 2 apartment. We're sorry that you didn't mention these things to us when you were here so that we could try to resolve some of the issues during your stay (e.g. replacing the missing crockery / glassware). We have passed the other feedback on to the owner who is already looking into the possibility of replacing the bed and we are working with them too to find a solution for the decking area too. We hope that we might have the chance to welcome you again in Chamonix in the future. UPDATE NOVEMBER 2015: The decking and bed have now been replaced. All crockery & glassware were updated after this guest's stay. The iPod dock has been replaced too with a new one.


My wife and I had a wonderful holiday staying at Le Cretet 2 apartment. We were met on arrival in Chamonix at Le Cretet 2.
We were given a short tour of the apartment by a very welcoming member of the Chamonix all year team. We have holidayed is self catering accommodation for the last 30 years and it was the first time having booked through a company we have been personally met and shown round. Nice touch😊Help and advice was offered for the duration of our stay by the Chamonix All year team. We were contacted by phone during our stay to check if everything was ok. Also to check if it was convenient for the gardener to pop round to cut the small lawn in the garden. Small but little touches do make a difference.
The apartment is small but we knew in advance. May be a bit of a squeeze for four adults. But is priced accordingly.
It is well equipped and was clean and tidy on arrival. We had a two week holiday and the bed linen was changed and we were provided with clean towels at the end of week one. The apartment had a small private garden with a lawn and decked area. Table chairs, sun loungers and a parasol are provided. We had the most stunning uninterrupted views of Mt Blanc. Enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunset from both the living area and bedroom which both have doors onto the decking and lawned area. The location is right on the the edge of a nice quiet residential area. Quite private overlooking a small farm hay meadows and woods. All these contributed to our holiday.
If you looking for the buzz of a town centre it does not tick that box.
It is though very convenient to the centre of Chamonix which has a wonderful holiday atmosphere. A good variety of restaurants to suit all budgets. A good selection of shops, fairly upmarket. (No tacky gift shops) Several small well stocked supermarkets. A Great Saturday market used by the local community.
Le Cretet 2 is located up a fairly steep hill. The stroll downtown is obviously very easy. For us in the 60 age group the walk back is a bit of a slog, but is very doable. Our record back was 17 minutes caused a bit of a sweat.
You are located in the mountains so don’t expect flat easy going.
We did have a car but Chamonix has a good transport infer structure of both busses and trains which within a regulated zone are all free using a visitor guest card. These are provided at no cost on arrival.
We bought a six day non consecutive lift pass which was great value. This enabled us to pick and choose our up days over a two week period. Very well priced compared to some of the Swiss Alpine resorts we have visited.
Can’t find fault with the accommodation or the staff at Chamonix All Year. The service they provided was spot on.
Chamonix is a thriving Alpine holiday destination which ticked all our boxes.
A great holiday.

Un logement parfait et une équipe de Chamonix All Year charmante et serviable. Nous repasserons par vous pour notre prochain séjour à Chamonix et en plus nous venons assez souvent. A bientôt.

5/5 - Stunning holiday
My family and I had the best holiday at this wonderful apartment. The apartment is a great size and lovely and modern. The bathroom is great as it has a nice powerful shower which lights up which my son thought was brilliant. It has the most amazing views which are breath taking. It's very quiet so you can sit out in an evening and the balcony is a sun trap in the day. The walk to the ski lift is about 5/10mins and if my 5 year old can do it then anyone can! We felt very safe and the location is perfect for the local shops and restaurants. All in all an amazing holiday and can't wait to book to go back. We have fallen in love with Chamonix and this apartment.

Las vistas desde el apartamento, la comodidad y lo bien equipado que esta.
We liked the views from the apartment, comfort and well equipped.
Oriana, Spain - June 2016 (Booking.com review)
The apartment was as described. It is a modest accommodation but well-equipped, well-decorated and functional. The views of Mont Blanc are spectacular. The apartment had English (Sky) and French (orange) TV boxes with many channels and a good quality boombox (Bose) with a Bluetooth connection. The communication with the Chamonix All Year team was seamless and the service was very efficient. I think that the apartment would be too crowded for more than two people. There's no ski locker, which is an inconvenience - I kept my skis in the car and the boots in the apartment. The apartment is not too far from the Brevent ski lift, the tourist centre of Chamonix, or public transportation, but it is not close either. While it's not absolutely necessary, I would recommend to have a car if staying at this place. The parking spot is not allocated or covered. I didn't have problems finding a spot to park the car but there was some cleaning the car from snow and ice involved.

4/5 - “Very comfortable - Incredible views”
his was a very comfortable apartment. location was excellent and closer to town and skiing than I expected. bathroom and kitchen very stylish. Very warm and views of MT Blanc incredible. Love security of electric metal shutters. Ageny were excellent with communication and professionalism. Sofa bed in lounge had slight slope which tends to happen . Tv very good. dishwasher useful. Driveway to parking steep so make sure have chains or winter tyres .

5/5 - “Fantastic apartment”
We stayed in the apartment during a skiing trip to Chamonix in Feb 2015. The apartment is in a very nice part of town about 5 minutes walk from the main Brevent lift. The apartment itself is very nicely presented and well equipped and we were impressed with how clean and tidy everything was when we arrived. The apartment is about a 15 minute walk in to town, but be aware that it is up a rather steep and long hill back to the apartment. If you have a car then this won't be an issue and there is plenty of parking outside the property. Chamonix is a lovely town and has a lot going for it. Plenty of restaurants and bars and loads to do if you aren't skiing. Unfortunately the skiing is rather spread out and you need to take a bus to most of the ski areas. The bus goes from town which is a little bit of a trek. Overall we were very impressed with the apartment and would highly recommend it as a place to stay albeit with a bit of an uphill walk.
This review was originally posted on Tripadvisor - February 2015
We had a fantastic stay at Le Cretet 2 which is a lovely well equipped apartment with fantastic views of Mont Blanc and its glaciers. The location is very peaceful and quiet in a lovely alpine setting but still close enough to walk into town to go shopping, buy groceries, catch the train or go to a restaurant. The nearby cable cars provide easy access for walking in the mountains which are rich in wildlife and natural beauty. All in all we had a wonderful holiday and would happily return.
Spencer Drinkwater, UK – August 2014
We stayed at this super apartment in June. The views of the Mont Blanc range were fantastic. The apartment was clean and tidy. The CAY representative was very attentive and friendly. It was a little off the beaten track and quite a stiff walk uphill from Chamonix centre however we didnt have any problems taking the car into Chamonix when we didnt want to walk. Looking forward to another stay next year.

4/5 - This little apartment is very well appointed. It has a tv (multiple cable boxes, dvds in the draws), full kitchen, bathroom and washing machine (no dryer).
The location is great if you have a car but can be a bit of a hike by foot. But the height does make for great views and proxmity to walking/hiking paths.
All in all this is a great way place to stay at when visiting the best place on earth.

Please do not stay at Le Cretet 2. You will not like missing your activities because you overslept - it will be too quiet for you. If you visit from crowded old England, you won't like the views - they are too far reaching and panoramic, you will just feel agorophobic. The accommodation feels uncannily homely, so you won't feel like you are on holiday at all! Maybe you should just stay at home? You certainly won't enjoy the walk back up from town after a few beers, even though its not that far really. Then there is the cost...possibly very very expensive because you will spend your time working out if you could possibly afford to offer to buy the apartment. In short, I suggest that you stay away so that there is more availability for those lucky enough to have stayed here and who understand its secrets... ;)

An excellent apartment with fantastic view of Mt Blanc and the glacier. Will definitely use the apartment again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Le Cretet 2 just before Christmas 2012. The highlight had to be the view out across the snow covered valley to Aiguille du Midi and Mt Blanc. Splendid!

Le Cretets 2 is a great place to stay, modern and extremely well equipped; deceptively close to the centre of town and yet beautifully quiet, beautiful open views. We loved the birdlife on our terrasse.

We got back to England after leaving at 1pm this morning (actually we left at 3 because the car broke down - as we were leaving!). We just wanted to say that the place was excellent and we will recommend it to our friends who are looking to holiday in the area. Many thanks

Hi Nick, The apartment was lovely and spotlessly clean and we would like to think we would use one of your apartments in the futur.
