|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
This 35sqm apartment is beautifully located in Place Venosc in Les 2 Alpes, only a two minute walk from the Super Diable new express chair lift and a further 5 minute walk to the meeting point for the main ski schools and kindergarten. Les Deux Alpes is one of the highest ski resorts at 3,600m, including the glacier, so skiing is always great. The town includes over 40 restaurants, bars, cinema, bowling, outdoor heated swimming pool. This one bedroom studio apartment sleeps 4 persons with all of Les 2 Alpes amenities within easy walking distance. No car necessary to get around although if you do drive to the airport there is private free parking at the apartment. Our apartment has completed a brand new refurbishment of the bathroom this summer (2014) with combined bath and shower. During this summer we are installing new floating wooden floor in the bedroom to match the hallway and put in living room that was completed in 2011. The galley kitchen is well equipped with oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher. There is plenty of storage space as well as a separate basement ski locker. The apartment has a small balcony overlooking the mountains. DVD and Ipod 4 speakers available and a Bluetooth speaker to connect to iPad and IPhone - Wifi installed and free for guests .
My husband and I love travelling, but like most people don't get the chance to do as much as we would like! I am in full time work running my own small business. We love skiing and cruising, hence the studio apartment in France. We just don't get to do enough of it, although we make sure we go every year even if it is for a short week-end. A keen gym person, I have recently started however doing early morning boot camp which I suspect qualifies me as nuts. My husband stays in bed...
Helen purchased this apartment in 2009
We wanted somewhere high to ensure good snow as we had often in the past gone to resorts at a lower altitude often resulting in ski-less breaks! This resort, which has a glacier means that we have never been short of snow so far. We bought the apartment at the end of the town with the most character, some great restaurants and more importantly only 2 mins walk from the red gondolas. And we mean 2 minutes! Place Venosc, the square where the apartment is located, it has lots of restaurants,bars and shops including a supermarket so pretty much everything is on hand. A big plus is the view of a mountain and a private car park. This is our fourth year of renting so we have references available if you wish to see some.
Key benefits - Ski Locker in basement with access through garage to exterior. Ground Floor location, and rear of building. Great view from lounge and small balcony. A new sofa bed in 2013 cost almost Euro 1000 but is a lovely sleep! Separate, but cosy, bedroom with a brand new pine bed bought in 2015. Great location, so close to new express chair lift. Private barrier car park. Management contact at location.
How to summarise staying here? Five star luxury ?- No - Safe, warm, clean,cosy and personal - Absolutely!
Just dropping you an email to say thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely apartment in Les Deux Alpes.
It was just what we needed for a skiing break....small but with everything that we needed. We chose to stay on the sofa bed as bedroom was a little cosy - sofa bed is so comfortable!! lovely to have the use of a DVD player and ipos connection. The kitchen area was stocked as needed with cutlery and utensils and we made good use of these :)
Bathroom is beautiful!! Light airy and very well done!
Ski storage was fantastic!!
The apartments location is brilliant! Bottom floor with easy access and close to everything needed - particularly the ski lift and shop!!
Lovely ski area - had a few dodgy days of weather but really made the most of it!
Sarah was very helpful - particularly with any questions on local amenities and when we had issues with a socket near kettle and cooker - perhaps the situation of kettle etc needs rethinking?
All in all we were very pleased with the apartment and had a lovely holiday!!
Un petit appartement très sympathique, lumineux et bien disposé. Extrêmement bien situé, 2 à minutes à pied des pistes et à 5 minutes de tous les bars, il vous permettra d'allier ski et festivités de la manière la plus agréable qu'il soit.
Lovely little apartment, ideal for 3 people. Excellent location with bakers and butchers literally a 1 minute walk from the apartment, and supermarket 3 minutes walk. Restaurants and shops are also a 3 minute walk. An easy less than 5 minute walk to the nearest ski lift.
The apartment itself is modern and clean, with a great bathroom, and well equipped. The double bed and sofa bed were both very comfortable and the WIFI worked brilliantly. The kitchen is small but has everything you need, hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, though the oven was a bit tired and difficult to get working (some instructions would have been good), but once we'd figured it out, it worked well. The only down side was that on arrival all the plug sockets and lights were hanging off the walls, including the bathroom which fortunately my husband just screwed back on (he is an electrical engineer!) but I'm glad we didn't have any young children with us. Also the laminate flooring had no edging so did tend to slide around a bit.
Having said that we would definitely have no hesitation going back again and recommending it to friends.
Apartment really close to all facilities. Nice restaurants and bars really near by. Couple of minutes walk to slopes. Apartment as described. Clean. Bed really comfortable. Excellent view. Unfortunately the oven was not working while we were there, but microwave was a combi. Always nice and warm, and plenty of hot water. 1st time to Les Deux Alpes- really liked it- planning on returning. One thing that would be useful in apartment would be a tin opener - Only thing really we found missing. Helen and Nick really prompt at getting back to you with any queries. Thanks. Had a great holiday
Nice, clean and tidy apartment. Perfect apartment for a small group looking for a short stay. Good working amenities and quiet.
The apartment is in a great location being close to the Diable lift and a very short morning stroll to the supermarket and nearby patisserie. We had a suberb short break which was facilitated by excellent communication from the owners who were very responsive and accommodating with our less than conventional travel plans.
This is a really nice little apartment it is in a great location right by the ski lift, shops, bars and restaurants.
It was always warm and has hot water, which was really needed after long cold day in the slopes.
The wifi was quick and very useful to check what lifts and pistes are open each morning.
It has small kitchen area but was all we needed to make breakfast and cook a quick meal.
The best thing about this apartment for us was the location as it was a 2 minute walk to two chair lifts and the bus stop to the main lift Jandri express ( however we did also walk to this lift which only takes about 5 to 8 mins in ski boots). Lots of good bars and restaurants also within 1 to 2 minute walk.
All round it provides a nice warm clean base for a good active holiday.
Easy to get to Les Deux Alpes with the low cost airlines offering a regular service throughout the Winter from most major airports in the UK. At Lyon try bensbus.co.uk for transfers. Trains also run from St Pancras in London to Grenoble in around 7.5 hours. Driving too is easier than you might expect and the resort can be reached in around 9 hours from Calais. We also hired a car at Lyon and Grenoble for approx 40 Euro a day.
Supermarkets: There are 2 main supermarkets in the resort and one,Spar is in the same square,Place Venosc, as the apartment. No worrying about having to find transport to stock up on food and drink.
Restaurants: There are lots of restaurants within walking distance serving local and international cuisine, crepes, snacks and coffees. Try Le Cellier in the Sq where the apartment is located. About 250 yards up the road is Crepes a Go Go that does fabulous crepes with all fillings and Hot Stone meat dishes and Fondue. Of course there are some typical ski resort restaurants by to the ski slopes both indoor and outdoor with reclining chairs to soak up the sun and relax.
Bars. Après ski you should try our favourite Polar Bear not far up the high street, but for a more quite atmosphere why not head for Croque Maison.
Clubs. They are there, but I have not tried any!
