/ Chamonix Flats
'good owners, good chalets in good location' keen to rent to 'scrounging climbers' who plan to exceed capacity with mates sleeping on the floor. Can you see any problems? Take a tent, it will be much cheaper!
We're not wasters, we're not going to trash the place. We'd just like to save a bit of money, have more comfort for wet weather days, and don't mind sleeping on the floor.
I'd never rent my place in the Alps out knowing it will be over-filled. It will invalidate insurance and,should there be a fire or something, I really don't think the local Sapier-pompiers will be too happy.
Have you thought about the 'refuge' type palces in Cham? There are a few bunkhouses etc and then you only need pay for the nights you stay. Many are quite good at storing a bag or two whilst you're away. Will be cheaper than renting a place and not using it half the time.
