Apartment Le Sommet du Bourg ★★★
France, Savoie - Haute Savoie, Chamonix
The location is best for UTMB, on the course, close to supermarket. The room is clean and good for 5 people. But no WIFI, so we need to prepare. I bring WIFI router and purchase SIM at ORANGE.
We stayed here during the week of Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc, and this apartment was in the centre of the action. We could walk easily to the Expo, race check-in and start/finish line, as well as countless shops and restaurants. We had mountain views even though we were in the centre of town. If someone was looking to get away from it all in the mountains, this wouldn't be the place because you're in town but we enjoyed the convenience.
The apartment itself is nicely decorated with an attractive, interesting layout. It was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. There is a small deck where we could entertain friends or enjoy a drink. We were steps away from anything we might need and close to trails and gondolas for hiking.
We hope to stay there again. Although it wouldn't prevent us from returning, the following features would be a nice addition:
- Free wifi
- Air conditioner or a retractable shade for the skylight (the apartment got hot on sunny days but cooled down by evening)
- Wall holder to convert hand shower to a hands-free shower
