Appartement Lachenal ★
France, Savoie - Haute Savoie, Chamonix
We were surprised at how small the apartment was, it was certainly the smallest we had ever booked, but it was cosy. Interhome provide a box of goodies and essentials to get you started which is great if you arrive after the shops have closed. The garage in the basement was a real bonus allowing us to store skis, boots, helmets etc out of the apartment and there were lifts to all levels. Despite the freezing weather, the garage never got below 7 Deg C so ski boots were not cold the next morning. The apartment is situated next to a bakers shop, across the road from a Japanese restaurant and 2-3 mins from the town centre (but to get there you will have already passed 2 more restaurants, so finding a place to eat out is really easy. There is a dishwasher (and dishwasher tablets in the Interhome goodie box), but it is really noisy and takes hours to do a load, so put it on as you go out in the morning or after lunch - or bring headphones! The traffic was fine around the town so we used our car to get between the various slopes and never had any problem with parking (we were there during the British school's half-term). Buses seemed to be very frequent and stops are convenient to the apartment and the slopes. The apartment is 4-5 mins walk from a ski lift in the Savoy area which was very convenient too. In all, a great place to spend a week, just expect it to be cosy rather than spacious and you will be fine.
Im Großen und Ganzen waren wir mit der Unterkunft/Service zufrieden.
Die Möbel waren zwar ziemlich alt, aber alles war sauber.
Am Abreisetag wäre es jedoch empfehlenswert wenn das Büro zur Schlüsselrückgabe bereits ab 8.00 Uhr geöffnet wäre.
