About Tony & Claire Potts

After leaving the UK 15 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 since 2004 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. 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 * Satellite TV with British and French Channels * Modern * Garage & Ski Cave * Slopes 50m away * Small, family-oriented village * Friendly Ski School * Quiet slopes * Two of the best ski runs in the region (I think!) - La Grande Terche (3.5km red run) & Roc d'enfer (an amazing 20km run) * 1 hour from the airport * Fantastic restaurants nearby

                                                              Fantastic Location. Well equipped, warm and welcoming apartment. Perfect for for families

                                                              We had a glorious week skiing here. The appartment has everything you need and more. The location is outstanding. The village was quiet, despite it being the height of season. We had everything we needed on our doorstep. We were very blessed with the snow. Tony and Clare have been very accommodating of our needs.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks Isabel! Glad you had a great time!

                                                              Comfortable, spacious apartment in great location

                                                              Annie R.

                                                              Second year in a row in this property. We love this area and the apartment suits our needs perfectly.

                                                              Only slight downside is you’d struggle to cater for 10 hungry skiers with the pots and pans available but great for 5.

                                                              The apartment was fantastic. Everything there that you could possibly need for a weeks skiing.

                                                              Sarah E.

                                                              The spacious apartment was ideal for two families of four. Bedrooms were nice and roomy and the convenience of two toilets and a shower as well as a bath made it very easy to accommodate everyone in the morning getting ready before hitting the slopes.

                                                              We arrived to a very clean and tidy apartment and couldn’t fault the convenice of having the ski hire shop next door and the telecabin a mere two minutes walk away- and that was with tour boots and skis!

                                                              Would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a great weeks skiing with a comfortable, homely fully equipet place to stay.
