About the Owner

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.

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.

Cheap ski holiday

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is small but adequate for 2 people and perfectly situated for the village and the ski bus. If you are looking for a budget ski holiday you wont get better.

Location

From the Owner

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.

To get to Les Carroz you can fly to Geneva. Onward travel from Geneva airport to Les Carroz can be by:

1. bus from the airport;

2. hire a car from Geneva airport.

Alternatively, you can drive your own car from the ferry ports such as Calais or Le Havre and this is about 9 hours of mainly motorway driving.

There are a good selection of restaurants and lively bars and cafes in the village. There are a wide range of shops including good quality gift shops, clothing shops, ski hire shops, delicatessen and other speciality shops, for example Savoyard specialties, boulangeries and patisseries.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
