Biolay is 1 of the 5 quality apartments within a chalet-style building, a short walk from the centre of Chamonix and close to the "les Planards" ski slopes. It is in a quiet position towards the end of a no through road, facing south-west with views towards Mont Blanc.
The apartment is on the ground floor and comprises 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite to the master bedroom), a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area plus main bathroom. It has a private terrace accessed via French doors from the living area. There is a designated parking space in front of the apartment with additional free parking less than 100m away. There is decent-sized storage cellar within the building and the apartments share a large terrace, adjacent to a shared sauna for the owners' use.
Our opinionBiolay is a pleasant mix of a modern, functional apartment within a traditional style chalet building. It is a small co-ownership of only 5 apartments, most of which are used for a combination of rental and personal use. It has a proven rental history, driven largely by its quiet position and proximity to the town centre, as well as being close to the Planards nursery slopes where many beginner ski lessons take place.
Agency feesAgency fees are included in the price and payable by the vendor.
LocationThe apartment is superbly located adjacent the les Planards ski area and just under 500 metres from the shops, bars and restaurants of the town centre.
For access to the slopes, there is a major bus stop less than 200 metres from the apartment, which in turn is a few metres from the main Chamonix train station, giving access up and down the Valley. The nearest supermarket is on Avenue Michel Croz, close to the station, although Chamonix's main supermarket, Carrefour, is only 650 metres away.
