About tom garnett

I am a married man with two young children, I live and work in England. We spend all our holidays in Les Deux Alpes usually three times each year, twice skiing and once in the Summer.

I am a keen skier and have skied in France since 1989, my wife got the bug in 1994, our daughter and son have both been skiing since they were 3 years old, one last year successfully completed gold with ESF and the other is embarking on 1st star.

tom garnett purchased this apartment in 2000

Why tom garnett chose Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes is a fantastic resort which offers extensive skiing and snowboarding for all abilities. The off piste opportunities are limitless and easily accessible.

It is a 'snow sure' resort due to the massive ski-able glacier and even boasts Summer skiing, my daughter has lessons in August!

The town is compact and friendly the bars and restaurants offer value for money and good quality food and drink. There is a large supermarket in the town which is well stocked and not overpriced.

The resort is about 1 hr 40 mins from Chambery and Grenoble airports and about 2 hrs 15 mins drive from Geneva and Lyon airports.

What makes this apartment unique

By far the biggest benefit of our property is its close proximity to the slopes and the main lifts, forget those horrendous walks in ski boots and those pesky rides on the bus before you've even considered attaching skis. We are quite literally 50m from the nursery slopes and a two minute walk to the Jandri Express, ski schools and local creche.

With a young family need I say more.

The apartment also boasts a window in every room (except the loo!). Not the usual dark claustrophobic bedrooms that can be associated with ski apartments.
