“Great location, clean, cosy and quiet!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed here in Feb 2016 for 4 nights (4 guys). We had never been to Chamonix before so we were just taking a chance on the location of the apartment but it turned out great.
The apartment was perfect for what we needed. The bunk beds were big enough to accommodate grown ups (the two of us who slept in them are over 6 ft) and the bedding was very comfortable. The apartment was very clean and had everything you could need and it was very cosy with the underfloor heating. The living area was very comfortable for just relaxing in and there was very little noise from traffic outside as you are far enough away from the hussle and bussle of the town and the main roads. Less than a five minute walk away are the bars and shops so the location is great.
Snostation and the owners were also very helpful and contacted us back almost instantaneously when we were looking for advice on ski-rental, how to get to the slopes etc.
If I was to head back to Chamonix I would definitely stay here again.

“Stunning apartment, great location, superb facilities ...”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What can I say. We stayed at Astor for a week, we returned yesterday. We walked in and what a wow. The apartment is superb. Laura and David have though of everything, from crisp cotton welcomng sheets, to dishwasher tablets and washing up liqud (always something we forget to take!), to the hair dryer and hair straigtners, there was nothing more we could have wanted. The apartment is in a fantastic location, it s easy to find (thanks to the map and directions provided), it is just off the main road (but not in a noisy location) and opposite the sneaky shortcut into town (if you walk through the sneaky short cut, it takes you over the bridge into town, or to the main ski pass purchase station). The views from the apartment are breathtaking, every window gives you a view of a different mountain, it was warm enough for us to sit out in the evening and watch the piste bashers go up and down the mountain. The apartment is just stunning, its beautifully furnished, the beds are comfy and the bedding is warm and snuggly. The underfloor heating is perfect and we did not need to use the radiators to top up at all. Laura and David provide a folder full of useful information, including instructions to use the washing machine and oven, it detailed the best places to eat and numbers for the doctors. Laura and David leave a welcome card on your arrival, which makes you feel so welcome. It really feels like you are staying in thier home. We have no hestiation in recommending this property to anyone (there is plenty of room for 5) and will definitely be booking again.

“Imaculately beautiful”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

There were four of us on this stay in The Astor to Cham, two couples. This was my 4 time to Chamonix and The Astors location is so so good! We didn't have skis with us but I the apartment would work great with your gear.
They supplied everything for us, sugars, tea, dishawasher tablets and much much more. The tv there (for when it was rarely on) had a wii console a dvd player and UK sky tv! With tonnes of dvds to choose from. Also free secure wifi.

Thank you for letting us use your fabulous apartment, you've created a great gem in the heart of adventure.

“Very nice place - perfect for our needs”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Nice place, quiet location but very convenient to the centre of Chamonix (5 minute walk). Ski hire is within walking distance. There's a good bus service that took us a while to figure out but passes practically right outside the door. The property was warm, comfortable & well kept. There were only 3 of us so we had plenty of room for our 4 night ski-stay. I think 7 would be a bit of a squeeze but could be done provided you were OK with three double beds plus one single (the top bunk). We cooked in a few nights, found the kitchen to be well equipped (unless you need an oven or a grill) - perfect for what we required. Nice people to deal with, Helen was there just as we arrived even though our flight was delayed & it was a Sunday.

“Perfect Place To Stay In Chamonix!”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

This is a beautifully presented, comfortable and well thought out apartment which catered perfectly for our needs. The views from both balconies are captivating and the location is ideal. It's a quick and easy walk to the vibrant town centre and there's also a regular free bus (Le Mulet) that stops just outside if you prefer to hitch a ride! The wifi is fast and there are British Freeview channels if you want to keep in touch with home. We appreciated the very detailed information pack and ate at a couple of Laura & David's recommended restaurants which were fantastic! There's so much more to do in the area and we would love to return in summer too. All in all, this is a magical place to spend a ski, cycling or walking holiday or just a relaxing break. Highly recommended to everyone!

“A Little Gem !”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a great week at 'Astor' with our two children (7 and 10). A great apartment, very tastefully decorated, and only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town.
The apartment was very easy to find, with good parking and close to all the amenities.
After a busy day our children loved the fact that they could play on a Wii (with games suitable for different ages in the drawer) or watch a DVD before bed (also a selection of films in the apartment for varied ages if you didn't have your own).
The owners were very quick to respond to questions before we went, and very kindly e-mailed us both when we arrived and left at the end of the week.
