The town has several good ski rental and clothing shops, a good mix of small supermarkets and local food shops for all daily essentials. Le Grand Massif is one of the largest linked ski regions in Europe, so whatever your level and style, you will not be bored.

Great little apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 4 and the apartment was just what we needed. Location is perfect, walking distance to everything, including bus stop across the road taking you to the lifts.

Jo was a great host and always easy to get hold of.

Good flat, great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in Les Carroz, good flat in an excellent location in the village centre. We didn't really get around to using the spa but the communal area was handy, with pool table and board games. Would come back if visiting Les Carroz again!

Owner's Response: Ah so lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay. It is a great spot isn't in! Next time you must definitely try out the Spa facilities, if only the relaxation room and free tea!

Half Term Skiing 2017

Great apartment – ideally located very close to the centre of town and the shops/restaurants and ice rink. Really handy for the ski bus (we always got a seat!). It was also great to have use of the gym, pool and pool table in the complex. We will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: So lovely to hear fab things about our apartment, thank you. Glad you enjoyed the pool and gym, I hope you found the sauna and steam rooms too?? If not next time, we'd love to have you back as soon as you are ready. Don't leave it too late though, we only had 2 weeks of the season available by Christmas this year!

The Wests

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 1week early March. We loved our skiing holiday, great weather conditions and apartment ideally situated for the ski bus, slopes and town centre. Very easy transfers to and from airport and use of adjoining pool and spa a bonus. Apartment was clean and comfortable and worked well with ski storage etc . The space was adequate for 4 adults but for 6 and if cooking large meals, it might be tight. Jo was great and we would recommend staying here. We would return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a lovely time and enjoyed the skiing. It is perfect to get on the slopes or pop into town and as you've said, ideal for 4 or 6 at a squeeeeeeze. We love it and hope you will come and stay again next year. Thank you. Jo

We fell in love with Les Carroz the first time we visited, and our friends felt exactly the same. We had said for years that we wanted to try different resorts each year, however, Les Carroz has everything that you could possibly want as a family or as a group of friends.

Les Carroz is part of the Grand Massif ski area, one of the largest in the French Alps and located in Haute-Savoie, just 40 minutes from Geneva. Grand Massif combined ski passes link the 5 resorts of Flaine, Samoens, Morillon, Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval and Les Carroz d'Araches.

With 165 miles of piste, the area provides a tremendous variety of on- and off-piste skiing and boarding, beautiful scenery and a wide range of other activities on and off the mountain including swimming, fitness and spas.

In the summer season, there are stunning views for walkers and runners, and a wide range of challenging climbs (and fabulous descents) for road and mountain bike enthusiasts.

Les Carroz has a creche (French-run, English-speaking) for Under-3's, and a Kid's Club for 3 to 9-year olds, which can be coordinated easily with the ski school. We used ESF.

Our youngest was in the creche for a full-day, and the 4 year-old in ski school, where after a morning of skiing she would be collected by Lupiots Kid's Club and taken to the Club for the afternoon. Creche and Kid's Club are 400m apart, which allowed us to ski all day and collect the kids easily on our way home.

Links to ESF, La Souris Verte (Creche), and Lupiots Kid's Club can be found at the Maps and Info page.
