Le Cristal de Jade apartments give Chamonix's self-catering accommodation a truly luxurious revamp. Brand new for the 2016/2017 winter season the apartments offer all the facilities of a 5* hotel yet with the freedom that self-catering provides. Traditional architecture with plenty of natural materials is stylishly modernised with large windows for plenty of natural light as well as high standard facilities throughout.
The apartments are split across three chalet-style buildings, with the main building housing the spacious reception and communal areas such as the indoor pools, spa, sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi's and gym - all of which all guests can use between 10am and 8pm. You can even pick up the daily newspapers from the lounge area or grab a cup of tea and a biscuit before you get your ski boots on from the station outside the locker room.
Location wise, the Aiguille du Midi lift is right next door (off-piste only) and to get to Chamonix's pisted ski areas the shuttle bus stops out front. The town centre is a short walk over the river where you'll find Chamonix in full flow. Plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to explore in this year-round buzzing town.

However, the free ski shuttle bus stops 100m from the apartments so you can get to each of Chamonix's different ski areas with minimum fuss.
