- "Just back from a fantastic stay at Chalet Maverick! Lovely chalet - very stylish and spacious, but nice and cosy with a big log fire in the lounge. The sauna was a nice treat and the views from the hot tub are magical! Our chalet hosts were fantastic, and looked after us really well.The pick-ups from the slopes were great and the tea and cake waiting when we got back was even better :) Food was excellent throughout! Many thanks to Daisy & Craig, and the whole Adventure Base team - see you next year!" - Trip Advisor
- "From the moment our group of friends arrived we felt at home and at ease. Transfers to and from the slopes were great and nothing was too much trouble. The food especially was superb! Katie and Theo were fantastic hosts and made our trip even more enjoyable. Thanks Guys!" - Trip Advisor
- "Excellent spacious and comfortable accommodation a short drive (5 mins) from Chamonix.Check in was smooth and professional - nothing was too much trouble. In terms of location there is nothing better than sitting in the garden (or better still the hot tub) enjoying a beer looking up at the snow capped mountains. A car is a must to explore the area and you would be somewhat isolated without." - Trip Advisor
Nestled in between Les Houches and Chamonix, Les Bossons is well placed for taking advantage of the attractions of both towns without having the hustle and bustle of either. There are some beautiful old properties here that make perfect refuges for a peaceful holiday.
Les Bossons is a quaint little village on the outskirts of Chamonix centre with a peaceful atmosphere and old fashioned charm. It has no shops or bars whatsoever, but if you like the quiet life then you'll love Les Bossons!
Les Bossons only has a handful of restaurants but they are all worth a visit. La Cremerie du Glacier is the most rustic, a cosy little place under the Glacier des Bossons serving calorific dishes laden with cheese, ham and wild mushrooms. Le Tremplin, near the bottom of the Les Bossons chairlift serves lots of local specialities including raclette and fondue at very reasonable prices, it has a lovely outdoor terrace with great views of the glacier too. Hotel Aiguille du Midi is a more sophisticated affair, without being at all stuffy; gourmet food prepared with seasonal local ingredients and a legendary dessert buffet make it popular with locals as well as hotel guests. A short walk towards Chamonix brings you to Hotel Le Vert, just after Gaillands lake, which serves good contemporary food as well as bar snacks.

Les Bossons has only one attraction to speak of but it's pretty special - the glacier. During the summer you can hike right up to it by following signs for La Jonction, a steep hike going up to 2589m, or you can take the jolly little multi-coloured chairlift up to 1400m and follow a short trail that has pictures of how the glacier has changed over the years. Other than that, you can hop on a train or bus to Chamonix and visit the main attractions such as the Aiguille du Midi and the Mer de Glace.
