Reviews

  • "I would more consider this your own private hotel than a villa rental. We were blown away by the house, the service, and the location. I would easily come back here any month of the year. I highly recommend the catered option - The food was fantastic and the house wines were great. Can't wait to visit again." -  Trip Advisor
  • "Our third visit to Chalet Amazon Creek and it continues to be first class in every respect. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff and the quality of the food was outstanding every day. This was indeed a great family Christmas away." -  Trip Advisor
  • "This was our 4th stay in Chalet Amazon Creek, and it never fails to impress. The chalet itself is beautifully appointed and furnished. All 5 of the ensuite bedrooms are spacious. Adults and children alike make good use of both the cinema room and vast indoor spa area which includes a jacuzzi, hammam and sauna. What sets Amazon Creek apart from other chalets is the level of service and hospitality. The food is second-to-none, indeed, it is as good as many Michelin starred restaurants I have visited in recent years! Ski hire, instructors and guides, babysitters, restaurants and a masseuse were all arranged in advance with the Amazon Creek booking team. Friendly drivers ferried us around the valley each day, and picked us up after a hard days' skiing. Once again, we had a great time, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a great holiday experience." -  Trip Advisor
  • "Top service at a beautiful location. Food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Travelling with a lot of kids and this is the way to do it. All our requirement´s taken care off and every aspect of our needs was attended to. Top lodge and top service - fantastic holiday." -  Trip Advisor

Towns Nearby

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!

Restaurants Nearby

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.

Sights Nearby

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.

Things to Do Nearby

Les Bossons is a great base for summer hiking, there are a number of trails that lead up into the forest beneath the Aiguille du Midi and on the opposite side of the valley you can access the incredibly beautiful Aiguillettes des Houches. It is conveniently placed on the bus and train links that connect Chamonix to Les Houches, so it is well placed for accessing all the activities that you can do in other parts of the valley. It does not have its own ski area, but all the resorts in the valley are easy to reach on public transport.

Nightlife Nearby

Bars? Nightlife? That's not what Les Bossons is all about, you can enjoy a quiet drink on the terrace of the Hotel Aiguille du Midi but that's about as wild as it gets. There is a nightbus that connects Chamonix to Les Houches, passing through Les Bossons along the way but check the timetable so you don't miss the last one!
