About the Owner

We are Anne-Marie and Graham Lush who have had an apartment in Morillon Les Esserts since 1987, so coming up for 30 years. Our children started skiing here aged 2 and 5. The whole family look on Les Esserts as our second home! We retired in 2008 and are sharing our time between the ski season in Les Esserts, sailing in Greece and going back home to be with our family, including our lovely grand daughters.

Little Apartment Les Esserts

  • 5 of 5

A charming, homely and well equipped small apartment in a very convenient location. Almost adjacent to the supermarket and a very short walk to the chair lift.

In late March you could ski back to the front door.

The only slight niggle is noise from delivery vehicles attending the supermarket which can disturb from about 5am on most mornings.

All round a very nice stay and would recommend for a couple or small family

From the Owner

The story of how we came to buy our first apartment is too long for this space! It involves a hired apartment the previous year, no one to meet us, a night in the car with small children, helpful people at an apartment builder's sales office (nothing to do with the people letting the apartment to us) getting the door broken into, a new lock fitted, having a lovely holiday despite the unpromising start, delivering chocolates to say thank you, picking up some sales literature out of politeness... then buying off plan from home... so that we would always have keys to get in! We didn't once, but that's another story! We and our family and friends love the Les Esserts ski resort, being able to ski to the door, and that it is small and friendly but part of the large Grand Massif ski area.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable Damage Deposit £150

Booking Notes:
£250 booking deposit to secure the rental week. In the unlikely event that the booking is cancelled, we will retain the full deposit unless we can re-book in which case we will return the full deposit minus any small, additional costs we incur. The balance is payable approximately 6 weeks before the holiday, plus an additional damages deposit of £150. Again, the balance is non-refundable unless the apartment is re-booked.

Normal changeover is Saturday midday. But, we are flexible and where possible recommend Sunday for cheaper flights & to avoid the rush at airports, on the roads & arriving at the resort. We can also offer long weekends and mid week starts as available. Shorter than weekly rentals are subject to a variable premium.

From the Owner

The best things about our apartments, apart from them being modern, tastefully decorated, fully equipped and well looked after, is that they are very conveniently located - next to the ski slopes and ski lifts and next door to the little Sherpa supermarket, one of the ski hire shops and one of the restaurants. The other shops and restaurants are not much further away either, say 50 metres! It's a small, friendly resort - not for anyone who wants to go to noisy discos, clubs, etc...
