Unlike many other ski areas in the Alps, Chamonix is a genuine town with a long history. We love to take a stroll down the main street, grab a coffee and enjoy the spectacular views of the Mont Blanc massif.
Chamonix consists of five main ski areas; Les Houches, Brevent/Flegére, Argentiere and Le Tour. The ones closest to Chalet Annabelle are Les Houches (5 min by car) and Brevent/Flegére (5-10 min by car). With the Mont Blanc Unlimited lift pass you also have free access to Courmayeur in Italy and St. Gervais/Megéve in France.
We, Lisa and Martin, have been exploring the western Alps for the past ten years and have discovered loads of great places. We have however always had a special attraction to Chamonix and have kept coming back here. The dream of living here has been in the back of our heads for years, but with careers and lives in Stockholm, the step of moving here seemed big. Eventually, we took the leap and found Chalet Annabelle which we are now running. So, here we are, living our dream!
Lisa has a passion for taking care of people and making sure that everyone are happy. She is also an amazing cook, especially when it comes to healthy and vegetarian dishes. Her colourful salads are always the highlights of any dinner. For you carnivores, don't worry, she also makes the best boeuf bourguignon.
Martin is a mountain biker at heart who can give you all the tips of the trails in the area. He is also a great driver and will make sure that you get to and from the slopes in a safe manner. While he is not running Chalet Annabelle, he is designing a mountain bike frame which will hopefully be on the market soon.
