Property Description

Luxurious living in a small yet world-renowned alpine village. The two-bedroom apartment is on the first floor of the Ancien Hotel du Globe, a completely renovated listed building finished to the highest standards. As featured in the Financial Times, 1st December 2007.

The apartment benefits from under-floor central heating, fully-fitted Italian-made kitchen, designer Stark bathrooms with high quality marble/stone finishes, elegant walnut parquet floor, hand-made walnut wardrobes in bedrooms; three balconies, garage and cellar also included in price. It measures 72 square metres.

Nestling in the heart of the Chamonix Valley (one hour from Geneva airport) is the old village of Argentiere. It is set in some of the most breathtaking scenery of the Alps, beneath the rugged peaks and glaciers of Les Grands Montets. Up until the early eighteenth century this picturesque valley was the home of a small farming community.

Today Argentiere offers probably some of the most challenging skiing in the Alps. Expert skiers are drawn to this Mecca of off-piste skiing and boarding with its world famous couloirs and steep gullies of the Grands Montets providing the best challenges. There are also the gentle nursery slopes of Les Chosalets for beginners, with a number of excellent local ski schools, and the immaculately-groomed wide-open sunny nursery slopes in the old farming village of Le Tour. But Argentiere is not only known for its excellent skiing resources. In fact, on the contrary, its mountaineering facilities are probably even more noteworthy and renowned. But the list does not end there: from paragliding to bowls, from hang-gliding to golf, walking and mountain-biking and there is a vast array of activities on offer all year round.

The apartment is in immediate proximity to bus and train services as well as local shops, restaurants and bars. The nearest ski lift is a short walk (7 mins!).
