Beautifully positioned apartment of 40sq m virtually on piste in this purpose built resort. Comfortably furnished with kitchenette, double sofa bed, shower room and toilet. Bedroom has 2 bunk beds sleeping 4. A feature of the apartment is the 8 metre long balcony and the glass-fronted real fire. Video and photos available from owners. Situated up mountain from gorgeous La Clusaz (ski into or drive or bus). Wonderful resort in Aravis Mountains. Less than 1 hour by hire car from Geneva airport. 40 minutes from glorious Annecy, the 'Venice of the Alps'!
Read the reviews-they are all true. I am a busy assistant head teacher at a London secondary school but I will find time to answer your questions and making sure this is one of the best ski/summer holidays you will have.
Most ski apartments are little more than a place to lay your head between ski-ing. Ours is a second home, nicely furnished and comfortable. It was originally two apartments but was built off-plan as one. It has no one overhead and no one on either side of the balcony. We are at the very top-and have it all to ourselves. The high gable roof gives a feeling of space and the view....wow, the view-just you wait and see!
There is enough ski-ing on the doorstep or you can ski from the door to La Balme, Beauregarde or into La Clusaz....all on your doorstep.
We are 100 metres from the piste. You come out of the door and can turn either left or right to walk, sometimes with skis on (if snow permits) just 100 mtrs to the pistes and then the Aravis is your playground.
We have a log fire (although please take care and do not have a furnace). We have a comfortable king sized sofa bed and a bedroom with 4 bunk beds-ideal for the children.
The shops, restaurants, ski hire, ESF Ski school etc are just half a km from the door-walk or drive. You can see our little 'Centre Commercial' from thwe balcony, it is that close.
In the evening if you do not feel like cooking-go to the wonderful Veille Ferme (far right corner from balcony)-wonderful Savoyarde food, in an amazing old farm house. Or Yeti Bar, for a wide variety of food and a games room with table tennis etc. In the summer their position just beside the swimming pool makes it an ideal venue to sit and sunbathe with a cocktail or an ice cream.
Or Le Dahu, the pizza restaurant just next door to Yeti. Or the wonderful Le Florineige restaurant/bar right on the piste.
We have a well-stocked Sherpa Supermarket and a bakery and laundry (although we have a washing machine in the apartment).
Only 70km from Geneva; Merdassier is a wonderful satellite resort of La Clusaz just 8 km up the mountain. It really is a ski in ski out resort with lifts and pistes 100 meters from our door. The apartment is situated at a snow-sure 1500 meters with easy ski access and road to 220km of pistes. Ski to La Clusaz, La Balme, La Grand Bornand and Croix Fry in minutes.Or ski in Merdassier with its ample ski-ing for all abilities. The resort has a collection of restaurants, a swimming pool (summer only), a supermarket and ski hire, ski school ESF.
We are in the most sumptuous, breathtaking setting. Ideal for both winter and summer with marked walks from the door.
La Clusaz is an absolute delight, crammed full of restaurants, shops and tea shops. It has a large Tourist Office. It has a ice rink (open air), cinema, part open air (yes, exhilarating in winter) Swimming Pool and Cinema (French films). It has a regular Monday morning market.
