About Jacky Mattin
My name is Jacky and I share ownership of the property with my son Alex, a busy anaesthetist in Oxfordshire. We have spent regular holidays here for many years and still do.I no longer ski but visit in the summer but my son and family ski when they can.
Jacky Mattin purchased this Chalet in 1994
Why Jacky Mattin chose Les Houches
Well, we love it! We have had some lovely Christmases here, with fabulous skiing and lovely summer holidays (my son, when young, would spend the entire day at times in the Olympic size swimming pool in Chamonix). My French Father was a Chasseur Alpin in the 30ties and returned to the area when widowed thus introducing us to the Alps and leading to ownership of the property.

Slice of mountain life
We loved our stay in your beautiful mountain chalet. It was quiet, clean, and very comfortable on the cool evenings. Great hiking nearby and a quick drive to town for restaurants and shops. Very well stocked for week stay. Thank you!
Nice quiet location, lovely chalet.
Another great stay in this quiet comfortable chalet after many years. It's up a fairly steep road so be aware chains may be required if snow is heavy. Book with confidence.
Very nice place with a tremendous view on "L'aiguille du midi" from the living room.
Very nice place with a tremendous view on "L'aiguille du midi" from the living room. The chalet has everything you need, it's a very great place near the main places of the town and you can find a bus within 5 to 10 minits walking that will get you in Chamonix in only 10 minits.
Great welcome, lots of information about what you can do in the valley were put on the table when we arrived so we didn't need to oversearch by ourselves.
A Fantastic Chalet in a great location.
The Chalet was very cosy, clean & comfortable & had everything we needed, with lovely views of the Mountains & The Aiguille du Midi. Close to Les Houches beginner ski run & other nearby ski runs as well as Chamonix Town centre. Plenty to see & do here.
Lovely little chalet
This small chalet in a quiet cul-de-sac comes well recommended, we've stayed here for two weeks every year for several years. Clean, well equipped and maintained, a 5 minute drive from the Les Houches lifts and 15 minutes from Chamonix.
The new management company as of this year (Apex) is run by two friendly Scots (Chris and Fraser) and we had no issues with our stay.
The chalet is located in a perfect spot; quiet, beautiful and close to stores, restaurants, and trailheads. We spent 4 weeks on a climbing/hiking trip and it was always nice to come back and grab a beer or glass of wine and sit out in the garden and enjoy the evening after an excursion. We also liked the fact we could visit Chamonix or elsewhere on a rest day or when it was too rainy to climb and it was only a 5 minute drive.
Most of the time there were 4 of us in the chalet which was ideal. It felt a little small when for a brief time we had 5 people.
Our only suggestion would be that a few of the amenities could use a bit of updating (e.g.toaster (broken handle) & coffee maker), but given the very fair price, this might be nit-picking;-)
Jacky and Alex were very pleasant and courteous to deal with via e-mail.
In Summer, the Parc de Merlet nature reserve is not to be missed. It has the best views of the Mont Blanc from its balcony restaurant and there are opportunities to see a lot of alpine wildlife. Also not to be missed: Taking the funicular railway to the Mer de Glace glacier and the cable car up the Aiguille du Midi, a mountain standing almost 4000m high with breathtaking views.
