The garden is flat, large and very safe as we are in a small private lane. The apartment faces south and is very light and sunny with great views. Step out into typical French countryside ready for exploring by car or foot.

We also have a one bedroom chalet apartment available in the same building. Private entrance off decking into a large living room with Sky TV and dining area. The shower room is fully tiled and modern. Upstairs is a very generous double bedroom with view over the garden and valley as well as towards Les Carroz ski slopes.Outside table etc.

Ski the Grand Massif: The French Alps have been famous for many years for the quality of skiing to be found. We are very well positioned for you to ski a variety of resorts from our self catering apartment. Some of these resorts include: Les Carroz (less than 15 minutes), Flaine and the Grand Massif domain (30 minutes), Les Gets (20 minutes), Morzine (25 minutes), Megeve (40 minutes), Chamonix (45 minutes).Within an hours' travelling is Contamines and St Gervais, beautiful traditional spa villages. Visit the traditionally French resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand, still little known to most British people. Huge ski area easily accessible.

Spring is a lovely time to visit the Alps - wild flowers cheer the meadows.

After a long cold winter and not too brilliant spring why not give yourself a treat and have a few days on the Alps, a chance to unwind and get ready for summer. May and June deals to be had, please contact us.

Wonderful area for cycling. In 2011 the Tour de France came by again, so close you could walk to the Col de Chatillon to watch and cheer your favourite cyclist. Next year why not bring your bike and cycle the same route? Many come to cycle the testing Col de Colombier, the route up to Flaine and many other cols in the locality. Use of garage for safe keeping of bicycles. By self catering you have so many options available.

Golf: There are numerous golf courses within easy travel of our self catering apartments. Stay here and visit the following courses: Flaine at 1844 metres, Les Gets, Chamonix, Megeve, Annecy and Thonon. Switzerland is a short drive away and again accessible for a day's golfing in superb countryside.

We can arrange to meet you at the airport and on a daily basis take you to a different golf course every day. Green rates are much cheaper than UK prices.

Why go to the same old courses in Spain and Portugal? Play on really interesting courses with amazing views that cannot be matched anywhere.

Activities: This part of the Alps is well known for its activities. You can have thrills on paragliders, rafting the rivers, mountaineering or rock climbing. Gentler activities such as walking, cycling, tennis, horse riding are also available. Of course you can just sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery or go touring for lakes and forests and plateaus full of history.

The 17th Stage Mountain Day of the 96th Tour de France 2009 took place in this area and went past our lane. Come and ride the passes that Mark Cavendish & Wiggins & so many other famous names have completed. We can drive you to various passes if you would prefer to cycle down or collect you at the end of a long, satisfying day.

All activities are covered here: choose one and we can tell you where you can indulge your interest or passion.

I am originally from North Wales and have lived and worked in Spain and another part of France before moving to the Haute Savoie. The hamlet I now live in is close to many ski resorts, skiing being one the many activities I like to take part in. I also cycle, walk and paraglide, this being the perfect area for activities.

Marian Brothers purchased this apartment in 2007

Having spent many trips in this region, either skiing or paragliding or climbing in earlier years, it seemed a good idea to live here permanently. This chalet offered a good size of property with amazing views and access to the ski resorts close by as well as motorways and shops for more practical day to day living.

The chalet has many reasons why my husband and I love it so much. We renovated it over a period of three years so are very proud of what we have achieved. When we first saw it, it looked sad and unloved but even then it had charm and the views which never change. Now it is a fully functioning chalet with two separate modern apartments, large gardens and orchard. At night the badgers come to raid the fallen walnuts and by day the woodpeckers manage to make off with a few too! St Sigismond is a small hamlet with lovely views and clean air and is part of Faucigny small villages group. All these villages still operate as they have done for so many years with a wonderful assortment of tourist facilities.

Winter Season 2009

Just packing up to leave this beautiful place having spent four snowboard filled months here. Whilst the place was stunning through the winter months I would very much love to stay and see the place bloom into spring and summer. Unfortunately I must think about working at some point.

I really enjoyed staying in the apartment which was fully furnished and equipped with everything I needed. Underfloor heating makes the place cosy in the winter and when the weather warms up the garden catches the sun all day long.

The house is located within reach of numerous ski resorts and I enjoyed exploring them during my stay here. The snow has been fantastic this year, being the best in over a decade. The owners of the house are both lovely and welcoming providing local knowledge of places to see and explore.

The house is located in a quiet village away from the main ski resorts providing a quiet and serene environment for anyone wishing to relax in peace after a hard days skiing or exploring. I would highly recommend a visit.

Owner's Response: We have thoroughly enjoyed having Rob staying here for the winter months, a perfect tenant in every respect. We shall miss him but, hopefully, he might come back with his family for a summer break! Now that spring has arrived and the fruit and especially the cherry trees are in blossom the Alps are looking very beautiful indeed: the snow is still on the tops but the flowers are blooming and the warmer months are on the way. Can you be tempted to spend some qualitiy time in the Alps this summer? We hope so and look forward to welcoming you.

Our family of 4 spent a beautiful Christmas in the apartment of this chalet, located only few minutes away from les Carroz ski slopes. The apartment is modern, clean and warm. It faces mountains (nice view when waking up) and it is fully equipped for a short as well as for a longer stay. There is a parking space for the car next to the chalet, which is really appreciated. The owners, Marian and Mike, are very friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend it to anyone going into this part of France! Marcin
Owner's Response: Many thanks Marcin. We are so pleased your family liked and apartment and area, after all home in Nice is also beautiful! Perhaps next time there will be more snow. M&M

Had such a amazing holiday last year staying in this super appartment, was desparately hoping I would not be disappointed on returning. On the contrary, fabulous familiar feeling coming back,with other family members this time. Service and advice up to expectations. Good to revisit some famuliar haunts and exciting to explore and walk in different areas . Just hope they open that cafe again in AGY! For evenig out..great restaurant Thai/Turkish not far and the very reliable and reasonable restaurant attached to the Carrefour Supermarkets..nothing like those in GB;excellent choice and have food cooked in front of you. Even found one open on Sundays. Other times very relaxing to cook in the appartment and sit outside on our personal patio under the umbrella with a glass of local Savoirade white! Cheers!
Owner's Response: Many thanks for a great review and we are happy you enjoyed your second visit to the Garden Apartment. We will do our best to get the Agy restaurant reopened for your next visit! It was lovely meeting other family members, see you all again next year?

I and Two friends have just returned from an excellent holiday staying in the clean and comfortable apartment.
By using the owners knowledge of outdoor activities we travelled to Chamonix and Annecy for fun, but also the more local area with good walking and cycling just outside the property and even a paragliding
take-off only Five minutes drive further up the mountain.
I have recommended the apartment to friends and want to return.

I have just come back from on excellent holiday staying in the ground floor apartment. The property was excellent maintained, very clean and comfortable. The description provided was spot on! The owners were only too keen to help with explaining the area and where was the right places to go. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment which was excellent value for money. I look forward to returning back next year.

MY MAGIC HOLIDAY IN THE ALPS!

  • Submitted: Apr 9, 2009

I love walking in beautiful places with a choice of very challenging and relaxing. I couldn't have picked a better place than this holiday rental. The appartment looked welcoming, very clean and comfortable, with everything I needed for my stay. I particularly liked the location from where i could walk from the appartment and those autumn colours dressing all the hillsdes around were to die for! I wanted to be away from the holiday buzz where i might spend more money than i can afford! , at the same time There is transport from the door down to Cluses from where i took a train to Chamonix for the day with all the buzz I felt like! I ended up doing this twice once for a leasurely explore and secondly in order to ascend to the Auguille du midi in the cable car...2 stages WOW can't even begin to describe that experience...what a feat of engineering and views out of this world! I was lucky as this does not always go to the top if the weather is too windy. I ended up taking a bus on another day, again from outside the appartment but this time in the other direction via Les Carroz to Flaine where the walking was magnificent. I must return here in the snow!
Apart from these highlights, the area around the appartment provided me with all the walking i needed. In Agy, the hill ( mountain)?behind the appartment, I spent time watching the paragliders take off and doing a few of the very well marked trails along the broad ridge at the top...on one day even walked to Les Carroz...though i did need to check first that there would be transport back!
The owners, both adventure, wildlife and generally outdoor junkies were very helpful giving me local information, and even gave me a lift to the nearest supermarche. I chose to use only public transport on this occasion and it worked great ,I am already planning my next return trip maybe this time I will hire a car ...not sure yet, but hopefully this appartment will be free and I will share with friends...guess I might need to book soon!
