Two of the chalet’s 5 bedrooms are set up with 2 twin beds each, ideal for kids.

The chalet is 50m from the train and bus stops, 60m from restaurants, bars, and bakery and 200m from the supermarket and bakery. Geneva (Switzerland) is the closest airport. Chamonix valley is easily reached: the house is 50m from bus and train stops that access the whole valley.

Style Notes

Modern Alpine. Recently renovated, this chalet offers all the mods cons, and retains a good dash of mid century charm. With pine ceilings, leather sofas, and wooden floors, it has an abundance of natural light and plenty of space to relax. The modern layout with an open concept lounge, dining room and kitchen is ideal for a family. We love the mountain views, the curvaceous armoires and the Banksy prints in the bedrooms.

We are Martin, Eli and Alma, Martin is British, Eli is Spanish, Alma is French so we consider ourselves European in every sense. We love sun and snow and heard about Kid & Coe from our American friends who came to stay with us. We hope you will enjoy our homes as much as we do.

Chamonix, French Alps

Ski slopes, pine forests and alpine chic

At the base of Mont Blanc, Chamonix is one of the French Alps’ most popular resorts, with a multitude of slopes and plenty to do year round. In winter, ski schools take kids from age 3, and plenty of activities take place on and off the slopes for all the family; when the snow has melted there are hiking trails, marmot paths, art clubs and mountain bike trails through the trees and around the valley. Cable cars offer panoramic views of the mountains and pretty alpine towns all around.
