About John Moore is run by John & Julie Moore, who live in S.E. England, and are both music lovers, playing violin at Maidstone Symphony Orchestra. We bought our first apartment in Courchevel in 2001 and love visiting the resort, never tiring of the fantastic skiing facilities offered in the Three Valleys.

Why John Moore chose Saint-Bon-Tarentaise

We had skied in Courchevel before, and loved the vast skiing area, but knew that, to ski every piste in the Three Valleys would mean returning for several years! 1650 is a family orientated resort with charming character, and appealed to us with its interesting variety of shops and restaurants. The Ariondaz apartment buildings offer genuine ski-in/ski-out facilities, and with plenty of free car parking, a games room with table tennis & table football, there's something for everyone here. We ski several times each year, and have never tired of skiing in this fantastic resort.

What makes this apartment unique

Genuine ski-in/ski-out. The views from our balcony are simply stunning, looking up towards the Saulire mountain peaks at 1850. As the apartment is south facing, we get the sun most of the day, and there's nothing better than returning home after a day's skiing to relax on the balcony with a drink! During the summer months, there are some great walks through the woods from just opposite our apartment, and one awakes to the sound of bells from the local Beaufort cows, as they graze on the luscious green mountain pastures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Everything provided is absolutely fine and if there is a problem it is really easy to get hold of Sandy so you do a really good job." (Peter & Lise Thomason)

"I have to say that your web info, letters and general stuff is great! We found the apartment was in an excellent location with ski in/out and really close to the (very quiet) lift. Also useful having the large ski locker as you often get those tiny wooden cupboards." (Julian & Sarah Powell)

"Holiday was fantastic, we had a lovely time. The apartment was great as well and we were very comfortable. Being so close to the piste was a blessing too. It was just a very lovely holiday so many thanks for your care." (Charlie Walker-Wise)

Chambery Airport is just one and a quarter hours drive away, in good driving conditions, so you can be on the piste quickly. Eurostar operates weekend services from London and Ashford to Moutiers, 25 minutes drive from Courchevel. Take a taxi or a bus to the resort.

Free ski buses (navettes) operate regularly every day between the different Courchevel resorts, making it easy to get around, for example if you want to eat out at a different resort.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great location, near local amenities and ski in/out what more could you want? Recently refurbished in contemporary style, clean and comfortable the owners have thought of everything you need for a great stay in Moriond. Description as described and lots of local info and advice from John prior to stay and follow up afterwards. Definitely recommend L'Ariondaz apartment

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We used the apartment for a summer holiday. We had a great time and will definitely be going back. The apartment itself is beautifully presented and the large south facing balcony was a real bonus which we made great use of. The building itself although large is very quiet during the summer.

The apartment is located in a great spot and you can do lovely walks straight from the front door. A free bus service linking all of the villages on the mountain stops right outside and we used it a lot instead of taking the car. There is an excellent little Carrefour supermarket just 5 minutes walk away that provided everything we needed. There is also a tourist information office just down from the supermarket with very helpful staff.

We found plenty to keep us occupied in the local area and only used the car a couple of times to go slightly further afield. Whether you want a relaxing or energetic holiday we can definitely recommend this apartment.

Courchevel 1650

  • 5 of 5

Spacious apartment in a beautiful area of Courchevel. We loved the large south facing balcony with views over the mountainside, perfect for meals and a glass of wine in the sun!

The apartment was newly renovated and fitted with everything we could need. We particularly enjoyed playing the board games and table tennis in the games room downstairs.

John and Jane were fantastic hosts and ensured our every need was catered for. We look forward to visiting again soon and would recommend this apartment to all!

Contemporary property, flexi accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and very spacious and allowed four adults to stay very comfortably. The balcony enjoys the evening sun, a great place to have drinks after a day of skiing. Ski bus stop is very close to the apartment block, making the journey to 1850 easy.

Clean, modern, warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment was ideal for us, just a little walk from the shops, bars and restaurants in Courchevel 1650. Ski lifts on the doorstep. We are a family of four and the apartment was an ideal size with a double bedroom and open plan kitchen/dining area. M y daughters slept on a comfortable pull-out sofa and there are two of these. It is very modern and clean with everything you need kitchen-wise if you chose to stay in and cook. A big plus for us was all the storage and wardrobe space. Would definitely book again.
