|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
At the foot of the slopes in the picturesque old village, Le Jandri is a 75m2 south facing duplex apartment with stunning views of the Muzelle glacier set in a traditional wooden chalet. Our amazing location offers immediate access (75 metres away) to the new Diable high speed lift arriving directly up the mountain - no hassle, no old chair lifts, no traversing! The chalet duplex is ideal for those seeking a tranquil and beautiful setting, although the apartment is also only 50m from the reasonably-priced bars, restaurants and supermarkets that Les Deux Alpes offers. The two balconies catch the afternoon sun and offer an ideal spot to enjoy the panoramic unspoilt views. Les Deux Alpes is a lovely resort offering a massive variety of ski and snowboard terrain including the largest ski-able glacier in Europe (also open in the summer) - suitable for experts and beginners alike.
We spent three years hunting for the perfect skiing apartment and we think that we have found it! We fell in love with Les Deux Alpes for all that it had to offer for the diverse needs of all the family: one powder-loving snowboarder and another fanatical adult skier who loves the piste; a jump-loving, rail-riding teenager; and four-year-old twins just finding their feet on the snow. Julia and Julien.
Julia Woodford purchased this apartment in 2012
We love the location of the apartment for its proximity to the lifts/slopes (75m) coupled with its scenic location.
Often disappointed ourselves on holidays in the past by slopes being further than we've been led to believe, or the need to take a succession of lifts to get to the main skiing area, being just 75m from a main lift with direct piste access is something we particularly relish.
With all the hustle and bustle two minutes away when required (there are loads of reasonably priced restaurants and numerous bars just around the corner), it is heavenly to be able to escape into our quiet enclave in the old village with its stunning views.
Having a duplex is great! With all the bedrooms on the upper floor, we don't have to worry when older children or adults want to stay up later.
We have often found that in some ski rentals, there is more bed capacity than space at the table or in the lounge - here this is not the case, with a large living area.
The view from our two balconies is unparalleled and these provide an excellent spot to enjoy the evening sunshine.
Being one of just three independent apartments in the entire traditional wooden chalet ensures that we are not disturbed constantly by people coming and going as is the case in the larger residences.
We've just returned from a summer skiing holiday in Les Deux Alps. We stayed for 8 nights at Le Solaret. Our family of 4, 2 adults to children aged 12 and 10 had the most amazing time. The apartment is just minutes walk from the best part of the town which has some lovely shops, restaurants and super markets.
The apartment is well equipped and had everything we needed. The balconies are offer a small seat for sun bathing. The views from each window are just stunning. Everything was clean, modern and well looked after, even the wifi worked great (all the time)
The resort has loads to do during the summer from swimming in the man made lake or one of the two heated outdoor pools. The most popular right by the main square. The snow up on the glacier was fantastic and our girls progressed really well in the ski school recommended to us by both Julia and Sarah. We also enjoyed the summer luge track which like the swimming pool was free using out 4 day lift passes.
Hoping to return again for summer 2017.
THANK YOU !
We spent a week here with our two daughters (21 and 22). The apartment is ideally positioned close to all amenities, it is well equipped, warm and comfortable
We have just returned from a fantastic weeks stay in Le Solaret. Perfect snow and weather we were so lucky. The resort itself is large with plenty of options for eating out and in (as there are several supermarkets). The apartment is well equipped and an excellent location just a couple of minutes walk from the bottom of the Diable lift and the town centre but still in a quiet area. Great little restaurant at the top of the road and close to ski shop for rental of skis that offer lockers that you can ski back to at the end of the day. We hope to return next year.
Very enjoyable stay. Apartment was well equipped and clean, close to the lift and lift pass office. Highly recommended
We have just got back from a wonderful few days staying at Le Soleret. We chose the spot as we planned to do some Summer skiing on the glacier and Les Deux Alpes seemed one of the more active Alpes resorts in the Summer. The apartment itself is in a lovely spot at the Southern end of the resort - off the main road so easy to park but still within a few minutes walking distance from all the bars and restaurants. It had ample space for the 5 of us (my wife and I, 5 year old, 8 year old and 10 month old) and even the kids bunk beds had the most stunning views out onto the mountain. The resort is great too - our kids have just started ski lessons and got so much out of a few days on the glacier nursery slopes - plus no moaning about being too cold when you're skiing in the sun! In the afternoon, you can swim, do the summer luge, downhill buggies or just chill with a drink. The main lift up to the glacier is about 10mins walk but we'll admit to cheating and throwing the skis in the car - if you're not familiar with Summer skiing on the glacier, it is a very early start!! Julia was really great from the first time I emailed her and she always came back quickly with all my questions in the run up to the holiday. I genuinely just came across the apartment on owners direct but wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The main slopes and lifts would be literally around the corner from the apartment in winter and we're already thinking about going back for a ski break. All in all, a great few days.
We are just finishing our weeks stay in this comfortable apartment. This is the second year we have stayed here and hopefully we shall be able to come again! It is snowing at the moment and we don't want to leave! This time we have come with all the family, some flying over from Bristol the rest of us have driven down from Brittany. The location of the apartment is perfect as it is only 5minutes walk from the ski lift yet close to shops and a supermarket but still in a quiet area. The skiing is unbeatable as there is guaranteed snow with access to the glacier! For the beginners we thoroughly recommend the ESI ski school who are extremely kind to the little ones.
