Location, location, location! Apartment Angelina is a fantastically located apartment right beside the Aiguille du Midi lift station in the very heart of Chamonix, so you have access to the bucket-list ski descent of the Vallée Blanche while the fantastic restaurants, bars, boutique shops and bright lights of Chamonix are right on your doorstep.
Angelina is also a lovely, stylish apartment and feels very convenient because everything is all on one floor.
The style throughout this luxury chalet apartment is modern and contemporary, using quality natural materials – lots of bleached wood, slate, leather and rattan. It is beautifully appointed and genuinely luxury, and all seems very easy living, being on just one floor. The good sized living room has a plasma screen TV with DVD player and satellite TV, while the open plan kitchen is stainless steel with granite work surfaces.
There are three bedrooms, one of which is ideal for children because it is smaller and has no windows. One of the others has a queen double and en suite open bathroom, the last one being a twin which shares a shower room with the children’s room. Both the children’s room and twin can also be doubles. The toiletries are all by L’Occitane.
Angelina can be booked as either a catered chalet or self-catered chalet. The fully catered package includes breakfast, afternoon tea and cakes daily, and for five nights of your stay you are also served pre-dinner canapés and champagne and 4 – 6 course evening meals. The package also includes a selection of spirits, beers and soft drinks. Spirits tend to include the most popular brands of vodka, rum, whisky, gin and liqueurs such as Baileys.
The chefs used are professional and selected for their ability to provide the highest standard of cuisine and versatile menu choices. They will make a menu choice for the first night and thereafter will discuss preferences and food styles with the guests. Many mix it up a bit, offering Savoyarde French cuisine and Mediterranean dishes and Asian. A point to note: if you request food such as lobster the budget may be exceeded and supplements may be charged in these instances.
The wine at the apartment is excellent — each year the chalet works with local wine merchants to choose a good selection of house wines. They also have an extensive à la carte list of wines that clients can purchase from. It includes many fine wines from local vineyards and other regions of France as well as other selections from around the world.
There are no spa facilities at the apartment.
Children would love the cosy little bedroom.
The fantastically handy location, right in the heart of Chamonix, and the easy-living convenience.
The lack of windows in the children’s bedroom, but it is very cosy as a result.
The location has to be Apartment Angelina’s USP. This Chamonix chalet literally overlooks the front of the new Aiguille du Midi cable car station in central Chamonix, so keen off-pisters and Vallée Blanche fanatics could not be better placed.
Geneva is just over an hour away by car from this luxury chalet apartment. Transfers to and from Geneva are included in the fully catered price, not so in the self-catered. Transfers can also be arranged to other airports such as Lyon and Grenoble, but additional charges apply.
