Built in local Savoyard stone and wood, this residence offers the most fabulous views of Mont Blanc. It comprises 32 apartments above a small square in a superb location - very central but set in its own grounds and therefore enjoys peaceful surroundings. La Ginabelle apartments not only benefit from their location but also the nearby facilities - just outside the building there is a free bus stop to take you to all the ski areas as well as being a minute walk to the abundance of eating and drinking venues in the centre of Chamonix. It is ideally positioned for the ski lifts too - only 5 minutes walk to the Aiguille du Midi cable car, Les Planards and Le Savoy ski lifts and also to the Maison de la Montagne - the main ski school in Chamonix. The railway station is about 2 minute walk on foot. On the ground floor of the building there is a good Savoyard restaurant, an excellent bakery and friendly ski-shop. Across the square there is a launderette and a friendly brasserie/café. Ginabelle2H is a luxury duplex apartment with fabulous views of Mont Blanc and Aiguille du Midi.
