Richard, Denise, and their two sons Alastair and Stephen have owned the apartment since 2007, and have enjoyed visiting the area for a number of years before that. Based in the UK, we have enjoyed visiting the peace and quiet of the Swiss alps in both the summer and the winter seasons.
Richard Cockrem purchased this apartment in 2007
This is our 6th year holidaying in Les Crosets and our 2nd year renting this apartment. We found the process incredibly easy and straightforward. The Cockrem's are friendly and helpful (even emailing me with directions to help us with our drive over).
The apartment is beautifully appointed, clean, quiet and in a great location with very easy access to the slopes. Everything has been included to make your stay an easy and comfortable one.
There is a small but well stocked shop in the next building, so it's easy to get the basics. They were more than happy to order in gluten free bread for me and a friendly ski hire shop situated on the ground floor of the apartment block.
Our children have skied successfully with the local ski school every year, making great progress and the nursery slope and meeting points are very close to the apartment. Our children had progressed onto the blue slopes of the resort within a few hours and reds within days. Night skiing is a big hit with our family, as is the snow park situated just off the main slope. With a Portes Du Soleil ski pass you can easily hop over the border to Avoriaz and Morzine in France and neighbouring Champoussin and Morgin in Switzerland. There are lots of ski runs to explore.
The resort itself is quiet, with a few restaurants and a couple of hotels, but for a family holiday with the children then this suits us just perfectly! The slopes are hardly ever crowded, even during half term, especially when compared to the much busier resorts of Avoriaz and Morzine on the other side of the mountain.
We love Les Crosets. It really is the best kept secret of the Portes Du Soleil.
A perfect stay for us, a norwegian family with three children (12-17) on our first trip to the Swiss alps. Les Crosets is a small and quiet village with a couple of nice restaurants and excellent location for exploring the Portes du Soleil area. It snows a lot in this area so there will not be sunshine every day and you may sometimes wake up early by the vehicles doing the snow clearing in the streets outside, but the skiing and scenery is magnificent. The apartment is spacious with very comfy furniture (good for relaxing after a long day on ski). Well equipped kitchen including a Raclette set. Hope to be back one day.
We had a great ski holiday in Les Crosets. The apartment is very spacious, cosy and beautiful furnished. Beds and bathrooms are really great. The room for the skies and shoes in the garage is very handy: you don't need the car al all, as you can reach the ski-piste from the garage. Porte de Soleil is a wonderful ski area with a lot of cosy restaurants and good pistes. We especially liked the Swiss part of the area, because this part was more quiet that the Avoriaz region.
Les Crosets is a very small place with only 1 small groceries shop and no ATM. We recommend to do the shopping in the COOP in Champery and use the ATM before going " upstairs" We love to come back in this beautiful apartment!!!

Excellent property in perfect location! It has everything you could need! The apartment is very comfortable and very well appointed, feels much more like a home than a rental property. We were 5 adults and a one year old and was perfect for those who weren't skiing as well. Having come from Australia it was a great ski holiday and would recommend the property to anyone...hope to be back some day! Thanks for letting us stay!
Good location close to the main lifts, fully equiped and totally clean. Two modern bathrooms, nicely furnished, great atmosphere. Enough room for a company of 7 including 3 smaller children. We would strongly recommend the place and we will try to come back next year. In addition, very friendly interaction with the owners. Bottom line: the apartment out-performs the images; go there!
We spent ten days in the Cockrem's exquisitely furnished and very comfortable apartment. The kitchen is so well equipped that any kind of meal can easily be prepared.
This was our first stay in a ski resort in the summer and we were not disappointed - the mountains with their abundant wild flowers had a different kind of beauty.
The two main chair lifts, which are very close to the apartment, were operational and for 10CHF per person per day there was also unlimited access to all those in the Portes du Soleil region and the miles of walking and mountain biking trails in Switzerland and France.
In the summer there is less choice of restaurants, but we enjoyed meals in two of them (Chez Nelly and Le Relais) which were within walking distance. There is a small supermarket close by and we appreciated the freshly baked bread and croissants.
We were staying at the time of the fantastic Montreux Jazz Festival (about 45 minutes drive away) and we went on several occasions. We were also given a very useful list of suggestions of interesting places to visit in the area, but we just liked to walk in the sunshine in the mountains.
There is a very impressive TV system with many DVDs, games, books etc, but we preferred to spend our evenings sitting on one of the three balconies enjoying the fabulous views and listening to the distant cow bells!
We had such an enjoyable holiday in this wonderful apartment in the peaceful, picturesque and welcoming village of Les Crosets. Very highly recommended.
