My husband and I chose to stay here after looking at reviews for accomodation in Chamonix. It is indeed, as the reviews all say, a comfortable, warm and homely place to stay. We were welcolmed by our host David, who also helped us with our ski hire and ski passes, which we appreciated. Each day he advises the best area for skiing, and will take you there.
Our room was comfortable and clean, if a little on the small side. I would suggest, as other reviewers have, that more hooks in the room would help, and the modern bathroom needs more shelving to store your bathroom products.
The standard of the meals provided is very good and the other guests at the long dining table made for very entertaining evenings in a cozy atmosphere.
The ski Domains in Chamonix are spread over a wide area, which means transport to and from the slopes is required. As we have only skied at ski in/ski out places, we found that a lot of time is taken either driving or getting 2 buses, to and from the chalet.
However if you choose to ski in Chamonix, Chalet Vert et Blanc is a lovely friendly home away
My only other suggestion would be an update of their website, which clearly gives the impression that Jackie and David are a team on site to look after you. All your enquiries and bookings are done through Jackie, so it is quite disappointing to find she no longer lives on site. One gets the impression that the chalet would be better served with two hosts instead of one.
