Chalet Heron is a renovated 17th century farmhouse full of rustic charm, set in a large and peaceful garden with undisturbed views of the Chamonix mountain range. It is a charming chalet which invariably captures the hearts of those who visit.

The main apartment listed here has a log burning stove for cosy evenings in and a range cooker to produce delicious meals around the farmhouse table.

There is one ensuite double and two twins with an Italian shower room.

The space
The chalet is located on quiet private road with a large garden and breathtaking views. It takes about 5 min drive to Les Houches centre and 7 min drive to Chamonix centre. The Mont Blanc tunnel is just 5 mins drive away. The whole place has wifi and a TV with apple TV for Netflixs .

The apartment makes up about 100m2 of space and is completely independent with separate entrance. The apartment is heated with efficient and modern electric heaters as well as a new wood burning stove.

There are two restaurants that are within walking distance, and the bus stop is about 200m away. It is best to visit the chalet with your own car, but if not it is possible to use public transport to get around. The Super market is just 5 mins drive away. During the high season the bus passes every 15 mins.

Where you’ll be

Les Houches, France

It is easiest to come to Chalet Heron by car. In the winter you will need winter tyres and maybe even worth having chains in the car if you dont have 4x4.

This give you great access to all the areas of the Chamonix Valley as well as Italy, Annecy and Switzerland etc for day trips.

If you would rather come by public transport you can get a bus to about 5 mins walk from the chalet. The bus stop is Taconnaz and is on the n1 line. The train is about 10 mins walk away, and the stop is also Taconnaz.

The supermarket is a 20 min walk away and there are also two restaurants within walking distance.

Inspired by the Blizzard of Ahhs film, 16 year old Jim got on a bus from his home town in Forte Williamn, on a one way ticket to Chamonix. He spent many seasons skiing in the Valley, immersed in the simple magical winters that Chamonix offers. The rest of the year he spends on a Santa Cruz Nomad Bike, pioneering the Golden Age of Mountain Biking in the Chamonix Valley! Rhiannon has been working in the Chamonix Valley for over 10 years in the chalet and adventure business. Together, Jim and Rhiannon bought the downstairs of the farmhouse 3 years ago and turned it into a home. An opportunity to develop the upstairs into this perfect mountain getaway came up and so they now run the rental together.
