The apartment was perfect for our group. Super nice inside, quite spacious and well appointed
The apartment was even better than expected. It's location was great with fairly easy access to skiing in the morning. The place was spacious and had everything we needed, but it could have used another towel or two and some wash cloths. The kitchen was well equipped and of course had a fondue pot which we used twice during our stay. 😊�
Thank you for your kind review, Rene - we are delighted that you had lovely holiday and that you enjoyed the apartment. We will certainly take your feedback on board and will see that there are extra towels and wash cloths available for guests.
We hope that we can welcome you back to Les Crosets again in the future.
Wonderful apartment in a great skiing area
We very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It is in a great spot, has good views and is very spacious, very nicely furnished und well equipped. It doesn't get much better. Thanks to the Cockrem Family!
Beautiful apartment in a fabulous location.
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.
We are so pleased that you had another great week in Les Crosets and that Luis and Katerina were able to order in gluten free bread. It's always great to see guests returning to our apartment and we hope to see you again in 2017/18 season.
Great apartment in perfect location
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.
Wonderful apartment, very cosy and nice furnished
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!!!
