About Julia Barry
We are private owners and this is our only chalet, bought in 2012. With our family we have enjoyed the mountains in summer and winter and regularly taken other families or friends to the chalet. Julia speaks fluent French so really enjoys communicating with the local people although many now speak English!
Julia Barry purchased this Chalet in 2002
Why Julia Barry chose Les Carroz d'Arâches
We bought the chalet as the whole family enjoyed skiing and we wanted a place close to Geneva in a village with a French feel to it. Les Carroz fitted the bill as it was a village before it became a ski resort. We've had as much fun in the summer as the winter with all the local outdoor activities - swimming in lakes and mountain biking being our favourites. The chalet is big enough for two or three families but very comfortable when there are only four or five people.
What makes this Chalet unique
The chalet is well planned and spacious so there is no need to feel cramped on a skiing holiday. It faces south so catches the sun, keeping it warm in summer and bright and airy in winter.

Super cosy chalet
A super chalet for our 2 families staying together over Christmas. The whole booking process with Julia was fantastic to deal with,very efficient and had lots of ideas and tips regarding our stay. The chalet was very clean and tidy upon arrival ,well appointed,and well placed for all amenities. We really love Les Carroz and have been going there for the last 8 years, would we stay there again ? Absolutely, thank you.
Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found the chalet well appointed. We are pleased that our tips were helpful and do hope you will be able to stay there again at the end of the year.
A lovely traditional style chalet
We cannot fault this chalet, a beautiful traditional design on the outside and all wood interior -perfect for our group of ten. You enter the property via the garage with access to the boot room and then up one flight of stairs to a spacious and very comfortable living and dining area with kitchen. Up one more flight of stairs to 4 of the bedrooms. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and a nice touch was that the linen was delivered to the chalet. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the bus stop and a short ride to the town centre and on to the gondola. The swimming pool and spa is a short walk away and was well used! Julia was an excellent host both in the booking process and during our stay. Our deposit was promptly returned which we appreciated. We hope to stay again and we will certainly recommend to friends.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our chalet and found it to be a perfect location both for access to the ski slopes as well as the nearby swimming pool and spa.
We are glad you hope to return to the chalet.
I have visited les Carroz on many occasions but it was our first time at Chalet Soleil Riant. The chalet is very equipped and extremely spacious. I have never stayed in such a spacious chalet and I would recommend it. The drying room was amazing and the space allowed all the kit to be put out in the evening so no last minute panics in the morning.
The snow was not great so we dorve up to Flaine and skied all morning but then stopped for a late lunch and a few drinks in the sun. It was a wonderful holiday.Many thanks
We are glad you so enjoyed your stay in Soleil Riant.
Très beau et spacieux chalet
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour au Soleil Riant.
Le chalet a répondu à toutes nos attentes : place, agencement, équipement et situation.
Aussi Julia a toujours été disponible pour répondre à toutes nos interrogations et exigences.
Encore un grand merci à Julia.
Merci beaucoup. Nous sommes fort contents que vous avez eu un si bon sejour et que le chalet avait tous que vous avez attendu.
Lovely summer holiday with kids
We were two families sharing Soleil Riant for a week in August. It was our first time in the mountains in the summer and we will definitely return!
A few good things to do with kids in the immediate area: a good outdoor public pool, a couple of easy walking trails and a great tree top adventure centre, all within a 5 minute walk. Further afield: hiking, canyoning, mountain biking. Les Carroz is small and compact with several cafés, restaurants. There are plenty of 'what to do' brochures in the chalet. Lovely and very well maintained chalet: great for our two families. Enjoy!
We are glad you so enjoyed your visit and the variety of activities there are to do with children near the chalet and look forward to welcoming you again one day.
A real home from home.
The chalet is warm and comfortably furnished with plenty of storage in the bedrooms. On arrival we found the chalet very clean with a well equipped kitchen. The washing machine and drying area were a real bonus. We had really enjoyable holiday in Les Carroz and would certainly return to Chalet Soleil Riant again. Julia dealt with any queries quickly and sent comprehensive information on the resort and chalet.
We are glad you so enjoyed your stay in Chalet Soleil Riant. Julia
