Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Cristal de Jade is an impressive residence with fantastic facilities. It offers the ultimate in luxury and relaxation for those keen to have the flexibility of a self-catered property. The interiors are tastefully furnished and the apartments are spacious and very well equipped. Relax in the fabulous spa area, with its large indoor swimming pool.

Located next to the Aiguille du Midi lift for easy access to the Vallée Blanche and for a closer view of the breathtaking Mont Blanc. The bus stop outside takes you easily to the various ski areas and the resort centre is just a short walk away, meaning dining out is very easy and the shops and resort activities are only a stone's throw away.

Chamonix

With 90% of the terrain above 2000m, Chamonix has for many years attracted skiers looking for good snow and who also want to ski the famous Vallée Blanche - or tackle the rest of the extensive off-piste skiing. There is an efficient ski bus which links the five main ski areas with our accommodation in Chamonix and the nearby village of Les Houches. Set against truly spectacular scenery at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc, the resort's setting is both unique and breathtaking. Chamonix offers an excellent range of sporting and leisure facilities with an unrivaled nightlife whilst Les Houches is quieter but full of Alpine charm. The choice of skiing is amazing, from cruisy blues and fun reds at Le Brevent, Flegere and Le Tour to more challenging runs at Les Grands Montets. Beginners start off in Chamonix or the nearby pretty village of Les Houches.
