We live in a very beautiful part of Scotland where we can enjoy sea views. We feel very fortunate to live here and also be able to enjoy the Mountain views while in France. We have skied all our lives both on water and snow.
Fiona Thomson purchased this apartment in 2008
We were holidaying in La Clusaz when we discovered Manigod on the other side of the mountain and found ourselves skiing there all the time. We returned one more time before deciding that we would like to buy an apartment in Manigod, it was sunnier than La Clusaz and less busy - perfect!
When we walked into this apartment in 2008 we knew that it was the one for us. The views are just spectacular and we spend hours on the balcony just looking.
This is a cosy and compact apartment with breathtaking views over the slopes and mountains beyond.
It is two strides from the front door to being able to put skis on and access the pistes.
The apartment was easy to find, although we did need to put on snow chains for the last 500 metres.
Parking during a busy half term week was not a problem.
The owners have been very helpful and fast in responding to any queries.
The apartment is nice, little and very cosy. The kitchen is very well equiped and the beds are good. The Balcony is a nice place to stay because it is on the sunny side of the building. The location is very close to the pistes so you can start and end your skitour near the house. Manigod Station is a typical french new skistation.
This is one of the most beautiful areas in the Alps. It is fantastic for walking in the summer months but super skiing in the Winter. The scenery is superb.
Annecy is only 34 kilometres from Manigod and not only has the deepest lake in Europe but is a really special place.
