Ski Apartment With Spectacular Mountain View in Flaine

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
South Facing One Bedroom Apartment Close to Slopes, Shops and Restaurants

Comfortable apartment nestled at the heart of a large snowy bowl at the centre of one of the largest linked snow sport areas in France, the Grand Massif. The view from the apartment is amazing and there is a small south facing balcony from which to enjoy it.

Conveniently located (on the same level as the building entrance) in Flaine Foret, it is walking distance from fantastic nursery slopes, which link into the wider resort. Next door is a small shopping area (including a pub, small supermarket, bakery, pizzeria, ski/snowboard school and snowsport rental) and lift to Flaine Forum.

This studio apartment has a separate double bedroom with a brand new day bed which pulls out to make a comfortable double bed. There are also underbed drawers and a double wardrobe. Between the bedroom and the living area there are bunk beds in a wide hallway/alcove with large underbed drawers. The living space is a studio style room with a fully equipped kitchen area (includes dishwasher), extendable dining table and chairs, a modern double sofa bed (with underbed storage), satellite TV and DVD player. The bathroom has a bath/shower and sink (with built in cupboard) and separate WC. There is also a ski locker by the entrance to the building.

Flaine is situated between Geneva and Chamonix Mont-Blanc, and has excellent transport links with Geneva and Lyon Airports. Alternatively, Flaine is a full days drive or train ride from the UK.

About the Owner

Living in the Midlands, we enjoy a variety of sports and in a previous life were both professional sports people. We have found snowsports to be a sociable way to enjoy the mountains with family and friends, particularly with our 2 young children. Since buying this apartment around 10 years ago we have also been delighted by how much there is to do here in the summer.

If you have any questions about the apartment or wider resort please feel free to contact me and I will do my very best to help.

Happy holidays,

Heather

Great location, lovely spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

The property is surprisingly spacious, with plenty of storage cupboards/ drawers. We used the bunk bed in the hallway for our daughters (4 and 5 years old). They loved it and slept very well. We were able to pull a sliding door across the living/kitchen area in the evenings to give them privacy to sleep, and us to have a glass of wine.

We slept in the double room, using the pull out day bed. It makes a very big bed and was extremely comfortable.

The kitchen/living area was well laid out giving us and our girls plenty of space to cook and eat and generally relax in. We were very lucky and had wonderful weather during our stay, and so spent a lot of time on the balcony (sunbathing even!) it was big enough for all 4 of us to relax on.

The apartment is easily accessible (no stairs in ski boots!) and is close enough to the slopes and main lifts, ski lesson meeting point to be able to walk in ski boots (there is a bus stop outside the apartment, which we did use also). The location is fantastic.

The property was clean and well maintained, we had no issues at all. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this apartment and the ski resort of Flaine.

Greta location and stunning views!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in Heathers apartment in Flaine. Having never been to Flaine before we were slightly unsure about where to stay but it's such a small place that this apartment is perfectly located for everything. It's really easy to find and check in is straightforward. Parking is available only a short walk away and is a reasonable 6 euros a day. The apartment has a lovely balcony with stunning views, perfect for relaxing on after a long day on the slopes. There was only two of us so plenty of space and everything you could need to cook with. There is a lot of storage as well so it didn't feel cluttered. We loved that it was on the ground floor so no stairs to scale with suitcases. It was really clean and the pull out bed in the bedroom was very comfy. A big plus for us was the bath which was very much needed to rest the tired muscles! Would definitely stay again. Thanks Heather.

Great base for a summer family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well equipped, clean and felt homely. It accommodated 3 adults and 2 children well for part of our stay and had a surprising amount of storage. We never tired of the view from the balcony and found that it was well situated for the resort facilities including a lovely bakery.

We spent some days in the resort itself which in the summer is equipped with lots of family activities (a small charge for a weekly / daily summer pass). Our kids aged 4 and 7 years loved the bouncy castles, high ropes, trampolines and quad bikes to name a few. On other days we went on local walks, picnics and a cable car ride to the local mountain top where we were rewarded with a fantastic view overlooking Mont Blanc. We also ventured further afield over to Chamonix and Annecy which are about an hour away in the car.

We would recommend this property for a family summer holiday and found the owners to be helpful and accommodating.

Location

From the Owner

Having originally visited many times as a child, we bought this apartment from family friends in order that I could share the kind of holidays I had had growing up with my own family. We haven't been disappointed, with the resort only improving over the years, we have visited more and more each year as our family has grown. Hoping you enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Facilities

From the Owner

The view from the south facing balcony is outstanding. There are no stairs to navigate as the entrance is on the same floor as the apartment. The building is conveniently located in Flaine Foret, close to shops and restaurants, and walking distance from the slopes at this level of the resort. Here you will find super runs for children and beginners, on slope ski lockers, ski lesson meeting points and the Grande Van ski lift, linking the resort of Flaine with the wider ski area.
