The Rivière Apartments are made up of two buildings, both offering views of the Mont Blanc. They’re both a short walk to the ski bus stop, and for all your self-catering needs, there’s a supermarket just across the road. Close by you’ll also find a range of cafés and restaurants including Monkey, Paradiso Pizza and Café Bluebird Chamonix – perfect for a fuss-free meal at the end of the day. Beginners have a quick journey to the nursery slopes of Les Planards, which are only 6 minutes’ bus ride away. More confident skiers don’t have far to walk either. The Aiguille du Midi cable car is only 5 minutes down the road and is your gateway to the mountains, and the world-famous Vallée Blanche run.
The Rivière Apartments have a convenient location in Chamonix Sud. The main promenade – and its selection of boutique shops, restaurants and local entertainment – is in each reach, as well as the ski bus stop, only metres away from the apartments buildings.
Two buildings, decked out with traditional wooden facades, house a range of comfortable and well-equipped apartments. The 4-person apartments can be found in the La Riviere building, while all others are based in Les Aiglons.
The functional apartments themselves are spacious, with simple wooden furnishings (what else do you expect from the French Alps?), comfy sofas and kitchenettes where you can whip up tasty meals morning and night.
