About the Owner

Hello, I am Susan, a grandmother in my 60's.

I live on the Dorset coast.

I have 4 adult sons, my oldest son lives in St Jean d'Aulps with his wife and 3 small children. I bought the apartment in Essert Romand, 6 minutes away from their house in order to have a place for all the family to stay to visit, with 3 children their own home is becoming quite busy !

Gareth and Sam run businesses in the Portes du Soleil, primarily mountain biking, snowshoeing and property.

You have the assurance that there is a very practical member of the family on the spot to give you advice and assistance.

Enjoyed our stay here. Owner very good leading up to our trip, although once we arrived no need to contact the owner - everything was fine.

Great base for walking, visiting local lakes and Morzine.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer stay in this unit, this time for 2 weeks. It is a well-appointed home from home. Great facilities, clean and well-maintained. Well managed by the local agent. Perfect to come back to after a good day outdoors. Location is ideal for us. Close enough to Morzine and Les Gets, but in a quiet village location for a good night's sleep! We'll be back.

From the Owner

My oldest son and his wife have lived in the Morzine area for 15 years and all their children have been born there. I have visited often and fallen in love with the area in all seasons. The skiing is varied enough for me never to be bored, the mountain restaurants plentiful and wonderful so I never go hungry. Out of the ski season there is much to do and visit, and wonderful walking. In the evenings there are more lovely restaurants than I can review ! Morzine is a lovely town, a resort but also a place where real people live, so it is never dead out of season like some places. Essert Romand is just out of Morzine, peaceful but very accessible.

Facilities

From the Owner

Close to a variety of lifts and ski areas, though not within walking distance, you do need a car to get the most out of the area. 5 or 6 minutes only by car. The lovely old building contains 8 apartments all privately owned. You also have the advantage of a member of the family living very close by if anything should go wrong. For instance if you should have a medical emergency do not hesitate to contact Gareth who will refer you immediately to his own Doctor.
