About Stuart

Hi - I bought the property as a 'home from home in the alps' for other like-minded people.

This isn't a money making exercise - if I happen to make anything out of it, then I'll plough it back into the property to improve it; I'm no property developer, just someone that loves the mountains and all they offer.

Stuart purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Stuart chose Portes du Soleil

I'm a a massive fan of mountain sports and wanted somewhere that would serve as a home from home for me and for people like me. I searched for a long time to find an apartment that met my needs; somewhere in the heart of a vibrant mountain town, within a good driving distance of a major airport, snow assured in the winter and plenty to do in the summer and, finally, the right size and proportions for a group of six to be comfortable.

Our 2nd stay, just as great!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed just after Christmas, over the new year. The apartment is a little updated since we were last here in 2012 and still comfy, spacious and with everything we needed. It is in such a convenient position within walking distance of restaurants, shops and the lifts! Stuart and Laura were so helpful and friendly throughout the booking and stay once again and any questions we had were dealt with as though nothing was too much trouble.

Really comfortable place to stay for four people and close to amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Would happily stay again in this homely apartment. The ensuites were on the small side but good to have the extra bathroom. Some minor maintenance required e.g. Clean shower plugs to improve drainage etc but nothing major.

Tastefully furnished well positioned chalet apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed an excellent week in this apartment. Its very spacious and the layout is such that it could easily accommodate three couples or a family. Its also very tastefully decorated with nice finishing touches giving a mountain "ambiance". We also enjoyed the Sky TV and high speed wifi. The apartment was clean with a plentiful supply of linen and a well equipped kitchen. Its within walking distance of both Super Morzine and the Pleney lifts, or you have the choice of free buses which run regularly. Its also easy to walk into the central area for the many atmospheric bars and restaurants. For shopping Petit Casino is only 2 minutes away, or Carrefour Market a couple of minutes in the car or a 10 minute walk. The skiing is great as you have the choice of skiing Morzine/les Gets on one side or Avoriaz/Portes du Soleil on the other. If you don't ski there are plenty of beautiful walks in the area. This property would probably also be a good choice for the summer, with the pool and many choices for walkers or cyclists. We hope to return again.

Spacious Clean Good Position In Town

  • 5 of 5

All positive, great spot in town, lovely apartment. Clean, spacious and well equipped.

Everything worked as should.

Over the years we have done many trips to Morzine, winter/summer and this has to be one of the top places we have stayed in.

We will be back!!

Bigger than the photos, very spacious and modern.

  • 4 of 5

The photos show 2 X twin beds, but there is actually a double bed in the main front bedroom, and the sofa bed in the living room is a huge big double one so ample for 6 people. The landlord Stu is very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The apartment ground level and is close to the centre of town for evening outs and far enough away from the noises of partying. There is a supermarket 2 minutes walk away. Had only a couple of groans, the shower curtain in the main bedroom ensuite shower is one that sticks to your bum and doesn't hold the water well and there is light comes through the internal door glass to the front bedroom, so if you need total darkness to sleep like I do take a pair of night eye covers. All the beds are comfortable and The place is very warm, masses of hot water each time and a well equipped kitchen. Great views from the front windows to mountains of Avoriaz. We had masses of snow while we were there and it was picture perfect, the snow ploughs were up and down the road from 6.30am, so if you're driving you won't get stuck. We would also recommend Skiddy Gonzales for transfers from Geneva to the door. If you're hiring skis, hire from Intersport at the bottom of Avoriaz ski lift, you can store them overnight, we hired from Alpine Sports, although you can store them there overnight it's a bit of a trek from there to the ski lifts, and they shut up shop from noon to 3pm. Use the little train that goes from Avoriaz ski lift to Super Morzine ski lift, it saves your legs and it's free. The best hot wine is from The Tibetan and don't forget to visit The Dixie Bar, if the Dixie Micks are playing you're in for a fun night.

Simply fab

  • 5 of 5

Stuart was extremely helpful from start to finish. We were five adults sharing the apartment and we all fitted very comfortably. The apartment is exactly as described, very comfortable and well located.

Everything you need is very close by and a short roll from the slopes if you take advantage of some apres ski!
