About The Owner

We're a professional couple with three boys aged twelve and under. We live in the Midlands and we've been skiing for the last 10 years and and are now introducing our boys to it, too. Luckily they seem to love it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why The Owner chose Les Carroz d'Arâches

We'd been skiing for a few years before we were invited to the Grand Massif by friends and we loved it and kept coming back. Then we visited the village of Les Carroz and realised we'd found the best kept secret in the Alps - a lovely unspoiled mountain village with access to one of the largest ski areas in France.

What makes this apartment unique

Every year when planning our holidays we always found it really difficult to find somewhere that really catered for all the requirements of young children and always seemed to be laden down with endless bags of "stuff". After visiting Les Carroz and falling in love with the beautiful village and the child-friendly attitude of the locals we decided to buy a place and kit it out so that we had everything we needed there. So there's bunk beds (big enough for grown-ups, too!), a high chair, travel cot, plastic cups and plates, games and even a steriliser in the apartment. We regard it as our second home and we've furnished it accordingly so we think you'll find it comfortable and homely as well as practical. Gary and Nichola x.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Everything was great, we found the apartment just what we wanted. We will book up either the same week or the next one, next year" January 2013

"Have just spent a great week skiing at Les Carroz - made all the more enjoyable by the lovely apartment we stayed in at C5 Les Trappeurs. The owners have furnished it beautifully and equipped it with everything you could possibly need. Having 3 good-sized bedrooms (whilst holidaying with 3 teenage boys) is a real bonus, as are the 2 bathrooms. We're planning our trip back again!" January 2011

"We had a fabulous time, your apartment is gorgeous, it was immaculately clean on arrival and we felt at home straight away. You could never tire of that view!"

July 2010

"We loved your apartment and thought that it was beautifully furnished, spacious and very comfortable. The buses ran regularly and on time and when they stopped, we walked the very pleasant route back to the apartment" March 2010

A truly outstanding apartment with all the facilities you could wish for. A spacious apartment for 6 adults and 2 children. We cooked 4 nights as the facilities were as good as home. Lovely nights in to sit around the large table and play board games! Private ski locker provided too. We hope to return next year. On the main bus route to the town centre and telecabine and the bus is free. Really easy walk into town. Amazing resort for families.
