Chalet Les Frênes
FREE BREAKFAST, FREE BIKE HIRE, FREE HOT TUB! The perfect place to spend your ski or summer break if you're on a budget. A real Alpine chalet experience for the price of a guesthouse.
The view from the chalet is incredible - the Mont-Blanc massif, glaciers and the highest cable car in Europe, the Aiguille du Midi.
Summer season is when Chalet les Frenes blossoms. You will not even want to venture into town. If you are not too busy relaxing in the garden in the shade of the cherry trees or strolling in the meadows at the foot of the glaciers, you will be eating refreshing salads on the balcony. There are walking trails right on the doorstep and a cyclepath leading to Les Houches in one direction and Chamonix in the other.
Chalet les Frenes is situated in Les Bossons, 4 kms from Chamonix town, equidistant between Les Houches and Brevent ski areas. A free bus offers hassle free transport to and from town and the bus stop is right in front of the chalet!
There is also a night bus service in the evening in the winter but alas not in the summer, we do however have mountain bikes which you can use free of charge.
