Appartement Le Sommet du Bourg ★★★
Frankrijk, Haute Savoie, Chamonix
We stayed here during the week of Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc, and this apartment was in the centre of the action. We could walk easily to the Expo, race check-in and start/finish line, as well as countless shops and restaurants. We had mountain views even though we were in the centre of town. If someone was looking to get away from it all in the mountains, this wouldn't be the place because you're in town but we enjoyed the convenience.
The apartment itself is nicely decorated with an attractive, interesting layout. It was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. There is a small deck where we could entertain friends or enjoy a drink. We were steps away from anything we might need and close to trails and gondolas for hiking.
We hope to stay there again. Although it wouldn't prevent us from returning, the following features would be a nice addition:
- Free wifi
- Air conditioner or a retractable shade for the skylight (the apartment got hot on sunny days but cooled down by evening)
- Wall holder to convert hand shower to a hands-free shower
This apartment was the perfect accomodation for our recent skiing vacation. It is located literally a few steps away (less than a 2 minute walk) to 2 different bus stops with lots of service frequency that whisk you away to all the skiing locations in the area. The grocery store is directly across the street and the apartment has immediate access to great restaurants and shops even a local video store (great for children). We would definintely stay here again, the amenities, location and cleanliness of the apartment made our holiday most enjoyable.
