Apartment in Les Deux Alpes, - Sunny, Well Designed And Comfortable 5th Floor Corner Apartment In Modern Complex
This is our much loved 2nd home and has more than a standard ski apartment would offer. Prices include free internet and sky freesat. We have electric wall heaters and a stand alone heater if needed. The flat is on the fifth floor of a modern apartment complex with stunning views overlooking the Venosc Valley and Parc d’Oisans. The bedroom, bathroom and sitting room all have windows. The bathroom has a 3/4 length bath with a dual hand held / top drench shower attachment and full size wash basin. Separate toilet. Entrance hall has an upper single bed, and underneath there is hanging space. The double aspect sitting room with TV / DVD (with Sky Free sat incl English TV) has a corner kitchen area (new), new dishwasher & electric hob, microwave-combi oven and a fridge. There is L shaped seating, the sofa converts to a double bed or two singles. You can ski from the back of the building, either from the 6th floor, or from the ski room on the 3rd floor. New balcony and cladding in 2012. Fantastic sunny wrap around balcony. Sunbathe in privacy in the summer
About the Owner
We have now partly retired to France (having lived in London for most of our working lives) where we are renovating a large house, and changing the vineyard and farm over to all organic produce. We've just won a prize locally for our white wine, and can supply bottles of it and our red wine at a reasonable price if required.
We both love skiing, and have used our apartment extensively and certainly intend to continue now it's only 3 hours away. In between times we're happy to rent the apartment out to guests.
We like to think our flat is more welcoming and homely that the standard flats available.

From the Owner
“After years of Summer and Winter skiing decided to buy. Many flats seemed to have something wrong with them (noise, position, no/poor view, lighting, accessibility etc.). We immediately knew this flat was the one, the moment we saw it. With stunning views in a quiet area, it is very well designed for the space, with a separate bathroom, and toilet. With a wrap around balcony you can sunbath in both the morning and afternoon and until much later in the day compared with property lower down (sun lounger provided). We like to think we have one of the best views in Deux Alpes. Even on a blustery day, its fun looking at the clouds swirl up from the valley below. We always enjoy the sunsets, having a sundowner as we watch the shadow rise up the mountain opposite. We know you will too.”
