Lovely Location. Very spacious living and sleeping areas. Everything working. Very Happy.
Great Weather. Met friends for scenic walks and trips out.
Thank you for your review of Apartment Rufus. I am really pleased that you had a lovely time during your stay and hopefully we can welcome you back another time.
A True Gem
Saint Jean D'Aulps / La Grand Terche is the hidden gem in the Les Portes du Soleil ski area. Some might find that not being connected into the wider Avoriaz / Morzine / Les Gets ski lift system a disadvantage however I can assure you it isn't. The ski station has a charming, rustic feel to it and has everything you need within 2 mins walk from each other including ski hire and ski school.
As a snowboarder of 20 years travelling with 3 kids and a wife all at beginner stage and then another family with 3 people looking to learn Chalet Rufus is perfectly situated only a very short walk from all the amenities.
The chalet itself is fantastic to the point we are booking to go later in the season. Ample space for two families with a bunk bed room for the kids. All the bedrooms are good size doubles with ensuite, huge kitchen and separate dining and living area, the finish to the chalet is A1. There are toys for the kids including a Wi and great Wifi connection.
Even if you are a seasoned skier / boarder you are only a 10/15 min drive from the Ardent bubble into Avoriaz & Morzine network. The local bus also provides a connection for those not driving so your covered in terms of being able to get into the larger ski areas. Even as a seasoned boarder there are some great runs to be had with the added bonus the pistes are significantly quieter so yep you can get fresh off piste powder runs all day. I can honestly say I've had some of the best runs ever here. It's not big, exposed mountain skiing, more intimate, tree lined shorter runs. But hey still great.
For those learning it's a no brainer as the ski school and hire are right on your doorstep. Especially for those learning it is a lot more affordable as you're not paying for a ski pass that covers a huge mountain area that you'll never get to see. The ESF school has English and French speakers and the Piou Piou for younger children is perfect.
As I've said we love the area and are booking the chalet again so we can only recommend it.
Thank you for your lovely review of the Rufus Apartment. I completely agree with you about la Grande Terche being a hidden gem. There have been quite a few days in the season when I've skied up there and not seen another sole; at some points on the Roc d'Enfer circuit you really feel like you are in the wilderness! Look forward to welcoming you back soon!
The Rufus Apartment is in an excellent location, a minutes walk from the telecabine at la Grande Terche, the ski resort of St Jean d'Aulps. You can actually ski back to the door of the apartment, snow conditions dependant. It is also only a 10 minute drive into the centre of Morzine, for those wanting more extensive skiing.
