About Lesley & Steve Jayne

We live near Southampton with our 3 children (two young adults and a teenager). We had our first family skiing holiday in 2010 and loved everything from the beautiful snow covered mountains, the exciting atmosphere of a ski resort to the simple fun of exploring the pistes. After considering investing in a summer holiday home for several years, but not being convinced of the sense of it, a ski in/out mountain ski apartment in a wonderful part of the French Alps seemed to tick all the boxes. Two exploration trips later and a lot of investigation work and here we are proud owners. Check out our separate website.

Lesley & Steve Jayne purchased this apartment in 2011

Fantastic location right in the heart of the village

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped apartment with the added bonus of being able to ski back to the ski locker door!

Wonderful location for young skiers. Apartment is not for elderly (5th floor - no lift!)

  • 4 of 5

It's an ideal location for young skiers. Beginners start lessons close by. Good skiers can ski straight out of the building. The skiing area is extensive and varied.

The accomodation is tight but does sleep 8 in comfortable beds. The kids and grandkids had a great time, but the grandparents found the stairs (5 floors) hard to climb. The fridge was not adequate for 8 people; fortunately it was cold enough to keep some food and drinks outside.

Great Ski Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at this apartment. The location was great and we were able to ski and ski out. We used to come back for lunch which was brilliant, and enabled the little ones to have a rest before they headed for the afternoon skiing. It was easy to get to the ski school, and having the boot room at the foot of the piste was really handy. There are a few stairs, which weren't a problem for us, despite me having suffered a knee injury skiing in January, and actually it was a welcome warm up and cool down.. and justification for a croissant or two!

We were a family of four, plus grandparents and my cousin and his son, and the accommodation worked well... in an ideal world we would have had another bathroom rather than just a toilet, but it was good value and really nicely presented so we were really happy with our choice! Thank you.

Lovely Flat, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Morillon is a great place to ski and this flat is right in the heart of it.

Simple place that is well stocked with everything you need and the owners were very helpful.

Would certainly recommend it.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week with our two children aged 16 and 13, the apartment was almost certainly the cleanest we have ever stayed in, Maryvonne who met with us on arrival was lovely and helpful, showing us around the apartment, the apartment is very well situated and you only have to take about 20 paces to hit the main chair in Morillion.

The actual apartment has well equipped bedrooms and enough storage but by far the best bit is the kitchen!! Equipped for anything you want to do and more!!! Perfect for us as we love to cook !!

Also wanted to thank whomever made the DVD collection!! We had loads of evenings resting up watching films ready to hit the powder the next day!!!

Probably if I had to give a downside or negative I would struggle but would say the stairs can be a pain when you arrive and if you have your own equipment , but that's probably just me being lazy !!

If your considering this apartment and a holiday in Morillion you won't be disappointed !! We certainly wasn't!!
