Beautiful Apartment Metres From The Slopes

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week skiing at this stunning spacious apartment. It is massive...... The apartment is well equipped with 3 good sized bedrooms, 3 showers and 2 toilets. The view from the lounge/dining area is stunning and it also has a large balcony. Simon was very helpful during the booking process and was also very knowledgeable of the local area and gave us advice regarding transfers etc.

We loved Morillon 1100, is has a well equipped supermarket, Bakery, Handful of restaurants and a lovely pub opposite the apartment which is all we require for a family ski holiday. We loved the Grand Massif Ski area, it was empty, Flaine is 3 lifts away if you want to head over there for some stunning views of Mont Blanc but we love the long blue runs down towards Les Carroz and Morillon.

We will be returning next year.

Stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5

Cosy apartment fantastic views of the Sairon blue slope..ski in ski out location, good choice of slopes plenty for everyone of all abilities.

The apartment is very comfortable 3double bedrooms nice lounge very well equipped kitchen..duvets and pillows are provided but you need to either bring your own linen and towels or rent from the agency. There is a nice big ski room. There are numerous ski hire shops, a couple of restaurants and bars and a well stocked supermarket close by ..approx 5 mins walk away. There is also a nice bakery on site.. The resort is part of the grand massif and is mainly served by chair lifts.. We have rented this apartment 2 times and will definitely return.
