The kitchen has a range of units including a 4 ring ceramic hob, self-cleaning fan oven, dishwasher, fridge (4 * freezer compartment), and microwave. An HD TV with Free TV (french freeview), Bluray/DVD player, and a CD stereo with iPod dock and input for MP3 player, are also here. High speed Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the apartment.
The main bedroom has a double bed, with large chest of drawers and a fitted wardrobe. The second bedroom has adult-sized bunk beds, suitable for all ages, with a further full-size, pull-out single bed; also a large chest of drawers and a walk-in wardrobe.
The bathroom has a bath with shower over, sink and a washer dryer. There is a separate WC and large fitted wardrobes in the hallway. In the living room cupboard are a few rainy day games and toys, plus notes on how to use the various appliances, info on the local area and tourist attractions, plus maps for walking.
Terrace: The apartment features a paved terrace and green area. Deckchairs for sun-lounging are stored outside for use when the weather is bright. There is also an outdoor dining set for 4 people.
Driving in Snow: Don't forget your snow-chains, these are compulsory items to carry in your car for some of the roads in this area during winter. Our access road is cleared by snow plough when required, but you may need the chains in-between visits if the snow is heavy. If you have 4 wheel drive you're unlikely to have any problems.
Well positioned between la clusaz and grand bornand skiing areas. Close to local shops and ski bus stops yet in a quiet setting. Well equipped apartment, modern and bright. Owners helpful and kept in touch. Highly recommend this apartment.
Appartement fonctionnel et chaleureux avec un mobilier neuf. Nous avons passé 2 semaines en été (sous le soleil). La situation permet de découvrir le lac d'Annecy mais aussi le massif du Mont Blanc. L'appartement est idéal pour une famille avec des enfants.
We are just back from a great few days skiing in La Clusaz and Gran Bornand. The apartment is an ideal location with just a short 5 minute walk to the ski bus that takes you to either resort in less than 10 minutes. Also located 5 minutes from Contat Sport where we hired all our gear.
The apartment itself was clean and tidy and plenty of room for the three of us with all the amenities we could have needed. The booster on the bathroom rail was ideally for drying gloves at the end of the day.
Ian and Claire were great hosts, really efficient and quick in coming back to us with information both before our trip and when we were there. Claire sent plenty of useful information ahead of our arrival which made for a very smooth and hassle free arrival, so we could get straight on the slopes.
We shall be back again soon I hope.
P.S the pizza shop is a amazing, do check it out!
Not long back from a wonderful week in Saint Jean de sixt. The apartment is exactly as described on the website: light, bright, spacious, clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped. The booking process was very efficient and Claire was always available to supply information or answer any queries we might have. We only had one small question while we were away it was very promptly answered. We were particularly impressed with the large range of detailed maps and walking guides which were available for guests' use. There were lovely smells emanating from the takeaway pizza place but we did not try it as one of us does not eat cheese. We did enjoy a lovely meal at `Le Cabanon' on our last night. We loved the area and will hopefully be back as there is so much more to do than we could fit into a week.
Fantastic apartment, warm, clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a family ski holiday. Location was excellent, quiet, yet only a few minutes walk from village centre and amenities. Excellent pizza take-out nearby! Easy walk to ski bus stop, with regular ski buses serving both La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand/Chinaillon for a great choice of skiing. Internet access was a nice extra! Ian and Claire were most helpful throughout the booking process, always quick to answer any queries and providing lots of useful information. Overall a lovely apartment, we would thoroughly recommend and will be going back.
A perfect apartment close to the centre of the village. We loved the flexibility of choosing between ski areas with the bus stops round the corner there was no endless walking around in ski boots. The apartment is very well equipped and we didn't need anything during our stay and having the wi fi was a real bonus to keep in touch with family back home. Every shop/restaurant/bar/takeaway pizza that you could need was just a short walk away and the highlight of waking up was being able to go to the boulangerie round the corner for our fresh breakfast!
St Jean-de-Sixt is a very pretty village, flanked by dramatic mountains and breath-taking scenery. Within easy reach of Geneva airport, only 30km from Annecy and 5 mins drive from the major resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand; St Jean makes for an excellent and varied holiday destination and base.
The village itself is well-served by shops and amenities, including bakeries, several restaurants and bars, sports shops for ski hire and sale, newsagent, hairdresser, pizza parlour and mini-supermarket. There are also tennis courts, a children's playground, petrol station and a tourist office. Various activities within and around the village include excellent summer walking plus snow shoe trails in winter, a range of cross-country skiing tracks and a sled piste and nursery slope. The ski bus, or your car, will take you across to Grand Bornand or up to La Clusaz where extensive ski slopes from beginner to expert are situated. In Winter there is a bus from Geneva airport to the village. There are also local taxi transfer firms, that we can provide advice on and help arrange.
Ski: Excellent skiing is available in Grand Bornand and La Clusaz with a range of runs from Green to Black. Off-piste skiing is also a possibility, but please use a guide for your own safety. You can drive to the base of the lifts in many cases, or perhaps more conveniently, use the ski-bus, which is free with your carte d'hote. They run very regularly through the season.
We can provide help with ski lessons and also arrange ski passes in advance of your stay and with a discount. These will be delivered on the first day of your holiday.
We recommend Contact Sports for your ski hire; the shop is very close to the apartment. You can get a 10% discount during school holidays, or 20% outside of these dates, with fliers available in the apartment. Have fun!
