About Tony & Claire Potts

After leaving the UK 12 years ago, we are currently teaching at an International School in Lusaka, Zambia after 6 years teaching in Dubai and 5 in the Philippines. Since the birth of our daughter and son, we decided to find ourselves a home - somewhere that they know is theirs. What better than to combine the things we love!

Tony & Claire Potts purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Tony & Claire Potts chose Saint-Jean-d'Aulps

We have being skiing in La Grande Terche for the past 11 years and when it came to buying a home this was our first choice, nowhere else could offer us the same possibilities as here.

We finally found the perfect apartment for us; light, airy and plenty of space. They say you know you have found the perfect home when you first walk in and this was definitely true for us.

We have lots of plans and ideas for the apartment and have been working on some of these over the last few years.

And instead of the apartment sitting empty throughout the ski year, we have decided to rent it out so others can experience some of the same magic and joy!

What makes this apartment unique

* Light, airy and spacious rooms

* WiFi, Wii & Apple TV

* Modern

* Slopes 50m away

* Small, family-oriented village

* Ski School

* Quiet slopes

* Two of the best ski runs in the region (I think!) - La Grand Terche (3.5km red run) & Roc d'enfer (15km run)

* 1 hour from the airport

* Fantastic restaurants nearby

Guestbook comments from the owner

We feel that La Grande Terche ia a ski treasure in so many ways and the skiing there can be fabulous, so few people complete the circuit and realise the wonderful runs available on their doorstep. Access to the Porte Du Soleil is so easy providing you have a car and then of course the skiing is endless. We have skied this area for many, many years and still find new runs and restaurants!!



Concerning the apartment itself, we thought it terrific. Absolutely everything we could have wanted (except the stairs), it is warm, extremely comfortable and easy to live in, somewhere welcoming to come home too after a tiring day. All the facilities were good, we appreciated the space, we have stayed in some very small apartments in the area, this was so much nicer. Things seemed to be managed well and my contact with yourself has only been helpful and positive. These sorts of detail make a holiday a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Needless to say I hope to come again and would recommend your apartment to anyone.

Lovely, comfortable apartment in friendly resort.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on the top floor which keeps you fit! Once there it is roomy and comfortable. We would have liked to stay longer. We would definitely come back again and stay here.

The apartment is very good for families especially young children which we have. The proximity to the piste and local restaurants and shop were great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review - glad you enjoyed your stay with your family. Yes, being on the top floor definitely keeps us fit too! It also means that the view is better too - and luckily, the ski locker/cave on the ground floor means you don't have to carry your equipment up! Looking forward to your next stay!

Located in the heart of the Aulps Valley, in the Chablais massif, the St Jean d'Aulps ski resort welcomes you in the warm atmosphere of its mountain village. La Grand Terche - part of the village St Jean d'Aulps - is a picturesque family ski resort literally on the Roc d'Enfer slopes. During the winter, St Jean D'Aulps offers 50 km of downhill ski slopes around the wonderful Roc d'Enfer with beautiful views of Lake Geneva, the 'Dents du Midi' and the Mont Blanc range. It also benefits from a ski bus link to other ski resorts of the Portes du Soleil region including Morzine, Les Gets & Avoriaz all within 20 minutes drive. The apartment is literally 50 metres from the cable car, 30 metres from a ski/snowboard hire shop and 50 metres from a small convenience store. Within 5 minutes walking distance, there are 3 family restaurants/bars with an excellent variety of food available.
