Third time in this apartment. Perfect for us - near grand montets, wonderful view, small but cosy and very functional in every way.
Comfortable apartment in a wonderful location
The apartment exceeded our expectations and was good value given the location and price. It is quite compact but was perfectly adequate for our family of 4, although it might be a bit tight with more. It was clean and well equipped. The view from the balcony is spectacular and the village, which is a short walk away, has everything you would need. The creamery is well worth the short 10 min walk up the river. The owner was friendly and helpful, and made regular contact before our stay to make sure that we were happy with the arrangements and to ensure we knew how to get to and access the property. We would definitely return.
Thank you very much for your helpful review. I’m glad our apartment exceeded your expectations and that you had a great time.
We (family of 4) had a great time staying in Rachel's marvel of a flat. The view of Mont Blanc in the morning was breathtaking. Everything was provided for and Rachel was a very helpful host. Even though the flat is compact, space is so thoughtfully used that we had no problems at all. Very comfortable. Highly recommendable.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Mike. I’m glad you had everything you needed and had a good time.
The Grand Roc houses is an Argentiere a classic. I have stayed in these houses many times in different apartments since the mid eighties. This apartement is particularly nice, very good layout, very clean, cosy and with a nice view of the mountains. Great host, great meat and greet. Grand Roc is as close to Grand Montets as it gets, which is one of its main advantages.
To me this is 5 stars. However, the Grand Roc houses are old and bit worn so I dont want to mislead anyone - if you are looking for something fancy or genuinly french this may not be it. Therefore the missing fifth star.
Cozy and cute, amazing views and great location!
We had a great time at this apartment! It was very clean, well-decorated and we loved the location! Having never been to the area, we wondered if staying in argentiere over Chamonix centre would be a disadvantage, but we discovered that we much preferred it and would definitely choose this commune in the future. It is much smaller and calmer (especially in August) than Chamonix, but with still all the services you would need (we even had to see a doctor while there who was just across the street). And there were still enough people around to make it feel lively and fun. There was a grocery store, souvenir shops, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. We hiked daily, and found that almost all of our hikes started near or further up the road from argentiere, we never even needed to go to Chamonix. That said, it is a short ten minute drive if you do want to go, or you can catch a bus. Very simple. The house is well-organized and equipped. We really appreciated the handy little guide about the house and surrounding areas as well as all the maps and books for planning activities. Beds were comfortable and amenities all worked well. The views from the whole apartment (even the bedroom!) of Mont Blanc were amazing! There is a playground on the grounds, which was great for our kids, and the balcony had high enough walls that we had no concerns with our 2 and 4 year old being out there.
The only thing that was unexpected was the size of the place. Within the rooms, you have plenty of space and it is very well layed out, but for some reason this complex has these odd 1.5 story units, so my husband, who is 6'2 was only a few inches from the ceiling. And the stairs up to the top floor and hallway to the bathroom upstairs were extremely tight. The bathroom was very, very small, although the shower had ample space. If you were obese or quite overweight (or claustrophobic), you would not fit in this house. But we got used to all this after a day and just found it rather amusing. Also, beware that there is no freezer. Not a huge deal for a week, but maybe for longer stays.
Overall, a wonderful location and host and I would highly recommend this place!
Wow!- thank you very much for writing such a comprehensive review . I'm sure that will be very helpful for future visitors. At some point in the near future when we make some changes to the kitchen , we will install a combined fridge - freezer. Thanks again .

Muy buena situación, apartamento en perfectas condiciones. Ambiente tranquilo y cerca de servicios básicos.
La propietaria muy servicial y atenta. No he tenido ningún problema (únicamente eché en falta una tostadora para tostar el pan del desayuno).
Han sido unas vacaciones completas, hemos podido hacer todo lo que queríamos, escalar, trekking, relax...
Recomendable al 100%
Muchas Gracias por tomar el tiempo para escribir un comentario. Nos alegramos que haya gustado el apartamento y disfrutado de sus vacaciones. Compraremos un tostador!
