About the Owner
From the Owner
“We love the village, the people, the mountains and all that the area has to offer. There is something to do all year round, for everyone. The village is at the head of the valley and therefore the ski area plus all the hiking trails, the rock climbing and great mountain biking areas are all on the doorstep...as are the full amenities of a real french village; fabulous boulangeries, good restaurants, local markets and coffee shops. We're just over an hour from Geneva - but there is a delightful remote feeling to the place. The village which has managed to retain its french authenticity, and is nestled at the foot of the Mont Blanc Massif - so you can ski, hike, bike and relax all year round!”

“The apartment was re-furbed a few years ago - from scratch ... There's pretty much everything you need for a good holiday - good fully equipped kitchen,wifi and a decked balcony with wooden chairs for enjoying watching the sun going down - or checking on the local activity in the village square!
