Apartment Rufus is a large chalet style ground floor apartment just a minute’s walk from the telecabine at St Jean d’Aulps ski area, la Grande Terche. It is even possible to ski back to the apartment when snow conditions allow. St Jean is an excellent resort for beginners & families, with a large nursery slope area and ski school at the top of the telecabine. To reach the rest of the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, access to Avoriaz via the Ardent telecabine is only a 15 minute drive and Morzine is a 10 minute drive.
The apartment was completely renovated in 2012. It is light and spacious and provides an ideal holiday rental for two families sharing.
The large living/dining area has a light and airy feel enhanced by the large French windows overlooking the garden at the front of the property. Light floods in with the beautiful mountain views.
There are several comfy sofas arranged around the log burner, the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a busy day skiing. There is also a dining table with cushioned chairs for 10 people. The large fully-equipped kitchen is just down the hallway from the dining area. It has everything you’d expect to find, plus a Nespresso coffee machine.
