The
Experience

Shaded by wind-rushed birches is this upstairs-downstairs little chalet – light and bright and stylish with country furniture and modern checks. Downstairs is open plan: a roundly rustic dining table, a snug shower room, and a kitchen with pottery and timeless pine. In the cosy living area, prints hang on the timber walls and a floor-to-ceiling window looks onto the garden.

Up the wooden spiral staircase is the main bedroom with its balcony and magnificent mountain views; kids love the mezzanine with its ladder to two single mattresses. Outside in the garden, roses clamber up wooden walls, geraniums fill window boxes.

The centre of Chamonix is reached in minutes for outdoorsy shopping and summer festivals. The little red rack and pinion railway chugs you up to Montenvers for views of the Mer de Glace; head higher, and you can step ‘into the void’ at the Aiguille du Midi.

Reviews

The private setting in a huge garden of this cute, intimate mazot makes perfect for a romantic getaway.

Suzie, Sawday's inspector

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was exactly what we were looking for. It was quiet and peaceful but easy to get into town by bus or train. A bus pass was provided to us. The bedroom had a beautiful view of the mountains in the top window. We woke up to the sounds of birds every morning. Check-in was very easy and we had everything we needed.

Location

The neighbourhood

You’re in the grounds of Colleen and Jean-Marie’s chalet – they live across the garden but it’s still wonderfully private. On the edge of pretty Le Tines, a bus takes you into Chamonix in 10 minutes – the original mountain town that thrums with life and the rustle of colourful down jackets all year round. As well as restaurants and bars, there’s a cinema, skating rink, pool and tennis, plus a lively Saturday morning market. Skiing takes top billing but when the snow melts it’s Mecca for climbers, mountain bikers, walkers and runners. Spas in St Gervais and Martigny will soothe weary limbs.

Local points of interest from Colleen Olianti

  • Chamonix is a bustling Alpine town surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Winter or summer, there is so much to do - Mont Blanc provides the backdrop to incredible adventure.
  • From Mazot Les Tines there are some beautiful walks along the river Arve, or up to the Petit Balcon which runs along the middle of the valley. In summer there is a pony riding centre close by.
  • The little mountain train stops at Les Tines. The service runs up and down the valley to several ski areas, or further afield into Switzerland.
  • Italy is a short bus or car ride away, through the Mont Blanc tunnel. Chamonix sits at the border of France, Italy and Switzerland.
  • The valley has some stunning restaurants to enjoy - from local Savoyarde to 1 and 2* Michelin menus, there is an amazing variety of good places to eat.

Introducing

Colleen Olianti

Colleen and Jean-Marie own a network of chalets across the valley, which they run with relaxed efficiency and a team of excellent staff – you’ll be well looked after. Jean-Marie is a Chamonix native: a well-respected mountain guide, he’s taken various politicians and celebrities around the peaks and slopes of the area, including Pierce Brosnan during the ski scenes of The World Is Not Enough.
