Lots of amenities and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment is great. It is nearly ski-in ski-out as it is right by the slopes and lifts. It is in a tranquil area. The nearby restaurants are all very good, and there are plenty of shops.

The apartment itself is comfortable and has everything that you could want including a bath for easing your aching limbs, and a ski locker, and the kitchen is well-equipped. We liked it a lot and found it good value.

I have to say though that even though there are indeed beds for 8, in our opinion there is nowhere near enough storage, space or capacities for 8 people. Plus there is only 1 small bathroom. We found it ideal for the 2 of us and would imagine that you could just about manage as 2 adults and 2 children, unless you are prepared to be very limited due to it being good value. Be really careful if you have to use the double bedroom on the mezzanine as the wooden staircase is very steep with very shallow steps.

Richard, the owner, is very friendly.

Super séjour au pied des pistes dans appartement spacieux et confortable

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est bien agencé et très pratique pour 6 personnes (nous étions 4 adultes et 2 enfants), balcon sud et vue des chambres de l'autre côté sur les pistes. L'appartement est sous les toits mais il y a un ascenseur. Hyper pratique pour le ski, on traverse la route et on y est! Il y a un local à ski près de l'entrée. Les commerces, supermarché et restaurants sont en bas de l'immeuble. Il y a une machine à laver, lave vaisselle, des télévisions de partout et le wifi. Les lits sont confortables et couettes très bien, peut être quelques oreillers mériteraient d'être remplacés. Cuisine très bien équipée avec également appareil à raclette et à fondue. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir!

Our apartment is situated in the centre of the Col de Merdassier ski resort, in the commune of MANIGOD, and is a satellite of the LA CLUSAZ ski resort. The apartment is at 1500 meters altitude, assuring good snow. The resort is primarily a family oriented resort with ski school (6 -70 yrs), ski creche (3-5 yrs olds), tourist office, sports shop, bars, SHERPA supermarket, 3 restaurants, launderette, cash point, bakery and doctor's surgery all within 50 yards of the apartment. You ski to and from the ski locker room! (Ski au Pied).The resort is a truly French resort with a fantastic friendly atmosphere. The Manigod tourist office claim the valley is amongst the most beautiful in the Alps. They are wrong: It is THE most beautiful valley in the Alps! The skiing is good for beginners and intermediates .... but, if you want serious off-piste through gully, trees and rocks, we have lots of that too. There is a nice run into La Clusaz by a 6 mile blue run, too.
