About Heidi Johnson

I live in Scotland with my husband and our three teenage children.

After spending many holidays in the French Alps we finally decided to take the plunge and purchased an apartment in the family ski resort of La Grande Terche.

Heidi Johnson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Heidi Johnson chose Portes du Soleil

We bought our holiday apartment because we wanted all year round activities in a fantastic setting which the Portes Du Soleil offers.

La Grand Terche is a small quiet friendly ski resort a short drive from St Jean D'Aulps.

Geneva is just over an hour away with many flights from the UK.

What makes this apartment unique

Our modern clean well equipped apartment offers accommodation for larger families, friends or for two smaller families sharing. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and most importantly two separate toilets!

The apartment had great views across the valley -perfect after a hard days activity. Summer evenings can be spent on the balcony enjoying the local wine.

Our apartment is located just a short walk (150 meters) from the main gondola, restaurants, and small supermarket.

There is a quick lift up to the apartment which is located on the fifth floor.

There is a secure cave for storing ski equipment and a lockable garage for cyclists in the summer.

Summer base for cycling the Morzine area and further afield.

  • 5 of 5

A group of us, who are all keen cyclists, stayed in this very well equipped apartment for a week's cycling in the area which has famous Cols and climbs that have been used in stages of The Tour de France. Flying with our bikes, we were able to use the lockable ground floor garage for storage and routine maintenance. The kitchen/dining area is perfect for self catering needs and has been recently refurbished to a high standard. Lashings of hot water and great showering facilities kept 6 of us clean and happy. The village, although quiet has an excellent bar restaurant run by Bill and his staff serving food as well as draught Paulaner beer which we found to be excellent hydration material. First class accommodation for this type of holiday with a reliable and friendly taxi service provided by Neil, for whom nothing was too much trouble.

I would highly recommend and we will definitely be going back !

Fabulous summer stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had two fantastic weeks staying at L'Ourson. The apartment is really well equipped, and had everything we needed and more. There was a fabulous kitchen with all mod cons, 2 bathrooms, satellite TV and DVD etc.

The apartment was in a peaceful location and perfectly situated for us to enjoy all the summer activities the area has to offer. A car is essential in the summer months. The apartment also has a garage/store which was necessity for us to store our 5 mountain bikes.

We will definitely return, hopefully for skiing next year!

conforme en tous points

  • 5 of 5

Nous ne connaissions pas St-Jean d’Aulps, petite station familiale et confidentielle; de plus elle est reliée aux « Portes du soleil » par une navette et Morzine est à 20 minutes de voiture pour une sortie en fin de journée.

Nous avions toujours des difficultés à trouver des location accessibles avec trois chambres, cette fois-ci rien à dire : 3 vraies chambres avec de vrais placards et deux couchages additionnels dans le couloir, deux SDB, 2 WC… à 7 c’était extra pour ne pas se gêner. Cette location est très agréable, spacieuse, propre, soignée et récemment rénovée. Tout est parfait, les explications fournies par le propriétaire, les lits et le linge de maison de qualité, l'équipement, tout est exactement conforme à l’annonce et le ménage compris est un vrai plus. même si l’annonce n’en fait pas état, les pistes ne sont pas loin et accessibles depuis l’appartement à condition qu’il y ai assez de neige, pour cela il faut remonter la route sur un vingtaine de mètres et tracer vers le télécabine.

Nous reviendrons sans hésiter !
