About Marie-Claude Cante
Available since recently retired, I will answer you from beginning to end and listen to you and will do my best to give you information and guide you step by step to a successful holiday.
Marie-Claude Cante purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Marie-Claude Cante chose Avoriaz
We renovated the apartment to bring comfort and modernity and to offer this friendly, functional and pleasant environment to live in Avoriaz. In addition to our location in the south west close to Bordeaux http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p987579a Our priority is always the well-being and satisfaction of our guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
The key highlights of our apartment: - The layout on two floors which is encouraging conviviality whilst giving privacy. - Located on the top floor with a terrace balcony offering beautiful mountain views and southern exposure. - The location at the bottom end of the resort offers peace and quiet, yet remaining only a short stroll to the center - Ski access to the building ..... Not to mention the charm of a no car resort and access to a vast and varied ski area.

Amazing views & location!
We were very pleased with the location of the apartment. Right across from the Prodains cablecar. The views were spectacular! The apartment had all the equipment & supplies we needed to prepare meals if we wanted. The beds were comfortable, even the sofa-beds were like proper beds in comfort.
I would have given 5 stars, but towels were not included, and beds were not made. You have to make the beds on arrival, and strip the beds for departure. It is the first time we had to do that, and we travel a lot around the world using Homeaway & Airbnb.
We also had trouble communicating with the local contact when we arrived. We only got a recorded message in French, so we did not know if we had the right contact. So checking in was a bit confusing.
Marie Claude was very good with communicating with us, and when we had a problem with the Wifi, she was able to have it fixed quickly.
Thanks for your review.
We are delighted that you enjoyed our apartment.
However we are sorry that some points have troubled you.
- Your remark about the towels surprised us a lot.
Towels (5) were well planned for your family. Our contact made a mistake if you did not have them. Why did not you warn us? (as for wifi)
On further investigation : the towels were correctly delivered, it is a simple misunderstanding :)
- Regarding the greeting on the mobile of our contact, I invite her to record it in French and English. It's a good idea.
- You would have liked that your beds are made, it could have been possible (option with extra charge).
Again, we could have satisfied you.
We are always listening to our guests and our main wish is to satisfy them at best.
Thanks for your understanding.
You are welcome for a future stay.
Fantastic location, fantastic apartment
This is a return visit to the apartment, and as before it was perfect. Like other reviewers we came up from Morzine on the cable car, much better than the winding road, the queue of traffic and the wait for transfer down to the apartment.
The apartment has everything we needed for a great week, having two bathrooms really helps with two teenagers, plus to be able to relax in the bath is just what is needed after a day on the slopes.
Being so close to the lifts means that you can beat the morning queues (especially in half term) and get to 'first lift' without having to be up at the crack of dawn.
Many thanks - hopefully be renting again next year.
Thank you very much for your review and the inventory of the benefits of our rental...
We are very happy when our guests choose to come again and stay with us.
To know that they still enjoy our apartment is for us a great reward and an encouragement to continue doing our best.
You are welcome anytime you like !
Great week in Avoriaz!
We have just come back from a great week in Avoriaz - helped by 5 days of brilliant skiing and boarding in the sunshine!
The flat is really, really well located, just 50m from the Prodains lift and had everything we needed. The galley kitchen is small but was sufficient for 4 of us. We ate all our breakfasts, most of our evening meals and none of our lunches in the flat. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery, pans, etc.. as well as a dishwasher which was useful.
The main bedroom is plenty big enough and the smaller (bunk bed) room is quite little. There are two bathrooms and non-stop hot water. The boot / ski room at the bottom of the block opens onto the slope down to a choice of 3 chair lifts - with two more lifts a short walk away.
The block was quiet in the evenings (we could make out some music at late lunchtime from the restaurant below). The walk into the centre of Avoriaz (supermarket, restaurants, village des enfants, etc..) is less than 5 minutes. There is a bakery immediately opposite the block, as well as a choice of cafes & restaurants that are open during the day.
We were made to feel welcome by both the owner and the letting agent in resort who met us on arrival. We were given useful information about the flat and the resort when we booked and there was plenty of good local information in the flat. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for your time in writing this very comprehensive review.
It presents in detail what you actually experienced in our apartment. The account of your experience on site is very useful to inform every Internet user who is interested in our rental.
We always do our best to make our guests appreciate the accommodation that we offer them with the concern that nothing is missing and that they feel like at home .... but in a new environnement.
We are delighted that it has contributed to the success of your stay.
We will welcome you with great pleasure to Avoriaz for next holidays.
Excellent Family Apartment
Really nice apartment well presented and in an excellent location for the slopes. Ski locker has direct access to the slopes. Would suggest using the Prodains cable car if a getting a transfer from Geneva, as quicker and much easier than using the main entrance and taxi's/horses. Ideal for a family of four although we had six and it was not a problem. Well decorated and very comfortable in a quiet location. Will be booking again at sometime in the future.
Thank you for your friendly review and your very useful advice for guests arriving by plane (from Geneva airport)
Excellent Séjour à Avoriaz chez Madame Cante
Excellent Accueil à notre arrivée , appartement très propre et très fonctionnel avec une foultitude d'accessoires de cuisine et autres , il ne manquait rien , ça change de pierre et vacances .
L' appartement est très bien placé , au pied des pistes , prêt au départ sur tout le domaine .
Le fait que l'appartement soit en 5 eme étage est un vrai plus , palier séparé , nuisances sonores limitées voire évitées ...
La station est très agréable , piétonne , avec de belles boutiques et des restos sympa , une ambiance très familiale mais très dynamique .
Nous reviendrons .

Empfehlenswerte FeWo in guter Lage
Zweckmäßig eingerichtete FeWo mit extrem guter Lage im Skigebiet. Check in leider erst um 18 Uhr möglich, obwohl laut FeWo direkt ab 16 Uhr . In der kleinen Küche ist alles vorhanden.
Danke für Ihren Beitrag zu unserer Wohnung.
Es tut mir nur sehr leid, dass Sie falsche Informationen von Fewo Direkt bekommen haben.
Nirgends steht nämlich, dass Check in um 16 Uhr ist.
In unseren Mietsbedingungen steht auf english:
RENTAL PERIOD :
Arrival day: from 17 p.m - Day of departure: before l0 a.m.
Je nachdem (wenn alles geputzt ist), kann es auch möglich sein, dass unsere Gâste früher in die Wohnung kommen dürfen.
Vielleicht haben Sie mit einer anderen Ferienwohnung verwechselt, die andere Bedingungen hatte.
Wichtig ist, dass Sie trotz dieses kleinen Ärgers am Anfang einen guten Aufenthalt hatten.
