It is situated in a quiet part of Les Carroz, right near the village centre, close to restaurants, bars, attractive shops and mini supermarkets, skating rink and swimming pool.

About Mr Andrew Roberts

From the age of three my early education was in Switzerland. I learnt to ski with my family and met my wife in Geneva. I now live in the countryside in Devon but have continued to return several times a year to ski with my wife and two children. My in-laws still live in the mountains there.

Here in Exeter, Devon we have a smallholding and keep Angora goats, chickens and two English Setter dogs. Now in my fifties I am still active, playing team squash, body boarding and kayaking. I also belong to a Dangerous Sports Club (the latter activity my wife says is a good excuse for a drink with the boys!)

Both my wife and I are teachers -she continues to teach at Plymouth University and I have retired and devote my time to looking after the smallholding and managing a student house in Exeter.

Mr Andrew Roberts purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mr Andrew Roberts chose Les Carroz d'Arâches

Having previously lived in Geneva and skied all around the Alps, we wanted a studio that was easily accessible to Geneva airport. We chose Les Carroz because it has superb skiing in the Grand Massif, and has a good reliable snow history. Les Carroz is a charming and vibrant village with good amenities and restaurants serving tasty local specialities. In summer there are lots of activities going on, ranging from walking, downhill biking, swimming in the village pool or natural spring lakes and riding to hang gliding and rafting. Everywhere you look there are stunning views of mountain scenery, with wooden chalets and tasteful traditional buildings.

What makes this apartment unique

The studio is well designed and you can enjoy coffee and croissants on the balcony in the morning, with a lovely view down the valley. The studio is in a quiet location but is in the village centre close to the shops, and ice skating rink. In the summer it is close to the outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts. If you wish to go sight seeing there are many places of interest nearby, including Chamonix, Annecy, Les Gets, Morzine etc.

There is ample private parking outside the building so you won't have to walk far. If you wish to walk to the ski lift it can be done in ten minutes, or you can take the free ski bus which stops outside the building.

very cosy apartment with great location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was really great. Cosy and quiet yet very central, 2 mins to shops, bakery, ski shop, bars , ice rink , ski bus stop and restaurants. 5 min walk to the new local pool complex with sauna and Turkish bath. The apartment was very clean with everything we needed. The pull out sofa bed was really large and comfortable and there was a huge selection of dvds to choose from. Ideal to relax after a day of skiing. The owners were really great to deal with. We will be booking again next year.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean apartment, close to bars shops restaurants and within easy access to the slopes. The apartment can accommodate a family of 4 with a pull out double sofa bed and bunk beds in the hall.

Thought it might be a mission bringing bedding however it didn't take up much space in my suitcase, so wasn't a problem at all. Definitely coming back next year. Thanks guys

Great central location

  • 4 of 5

We have been to Les Carroz twice before and this studio is better than others we have used. Great central location, near shops and restaurants and ski bus stop. Well maintained and equipped exactly as described.

The owners Andrew and Ann are very friendly, know the area extremely well so can give recommendations. We have already requested a booking for next year.
