About Anne McCallum

Trevor and Anne McCallum are from N-Ireland. They have three children.

Anne McCallum purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Anne McCallum chose Portes du Soleil area

We both love France and skiing so therefore decided to buy a property in Les Gets. Les Gets is very accessible from the UK (it is just an hour’s drive from Geneva Airport) and because it has all levels of skiing. Skiing home at the end of the day is such a pleasure, as you can ski right to the doorstep. In the morning, there is a four minute walk up to first slope which leads to the lift, but this serves the purpose of warming up the legs. From there, you then have access to 650km of pistes, all on one lift pass, and can ski right into Switzerland without even showing your passport. Les Gets has great restaurants both on the slopes and in the village.

What makes this apartment unique

Waking up in the morning to a panoramic view of the valley, you can check the snow and weather conditions on Mont Chery on the opposite side of the valley. The property is unique in that it is safe for children to play outside with no passing traffic nearby. Cars entering the complex do so by a coded barrier. The village is just a short walk away for shopping, restaurants and bars.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment, well kept and immaculate. The location is ideal, virtual ski in and out, and the views are amazing. The bars and restaurants are within a 10 minute walk, ideal as you are slightly away from the busy town centre. The free ski bus is very regular and efficient.

There was a slight hitch with the start of the stay however, this had no impact on our holiday and was dealt with quickly and efficiently by the owner, who went out of her way to ensure that we were not effected in any way. The booking process and information pack that was emailed to us prior to our stay provided us with all of the information we needed to locate and acces the apartment. We were also provided with information with regards to the best bars, restaurants, ski hire facilities and transfer options.

Les Gets is a lovely quaint village with a vast range of ski runs for all levels. We had two new starters with us who found it easy to navigate the lovely wide blues, alongside expert skiers who were entertained with the reds and black runs.

To summarise, fantastic apartment, great skiing area and very efficient owners. Thank you Anne, we had a great holiday.

Perfect Family Apartment in La Turche

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family skiing holiday. Loved being able to ski to the ski school and home as a family by the middle of the week (our 7 year old gaining enough confidence by then! It was a bit of a hike up the small slope to the button (quick though, 5 mins) but many alternatives, such as the free and very regular bus to all the slopes and les gets centre. (We were first on the button and onto empty slopes the last few days though which was a great reward!) The apartment is very well designed with everything you need, very comfy beds, lovely kitchen with all you need, good family table, lovely view, lots of dvds, games, lovely little touches in the bunk room for younger kids. Our kids made friends and played outside when they got back from skiing in the garden, very quiet no worries about traffic. Got our skis fitted at the apartment on the recommendation of the owner, this was a fantastic service and stress free! We self catered, but maybe would have been good to have booked some deliveries, this is possible through mountainxtra but we had left this a bit late. Still not far to town and easy parking outside the apartment and in town. We are hoping to return next year! Thanks for a really lovely stay in La Turche, its so peaceful and beautiful, perfect if you want to get away from the very pretty but busy les gets town centre.

Superb apartment on slopes with views.

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastically appointed inside. It is also located so you can virtally ski in ski out from La Turche. It has views across to Mont Chery and is lovely and quiet but it is on the free bus route to the centre of Les Gets or a 5-10 minute walk anyway when you need to get into the village. This year was our third stay at the apartment and we have booked again for next year as we can't see how you could beat it. The owner is very responsive and helpful/flexible as regards checking out times and storage of luggage. Once again thank you for sharing your lovely apartment with us.

A very warm and spacious apartment well located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weeks skiing holiday in Les Gets. The snow was good with runs open all the way back to the village and blue sky for most of the week. The apartment was warm and had 3 good sized bedrooms and spacious common areas making for pleasant apres ski relaxation! It was clearly a 'home' and it felt like our 'home' for the week. It was well equipped although I missed my morning filter coffee! There is a Nespresso machine if you have the capsules. A nice touch was the stocked dry food cupboards so if you ran out of teabags or needed spice you could likely find something in the cupboard and at the end of the week we added to the dry stock rather than throw away our unused supplies.

The apartment is well located in a quiet area of Les Gets but only a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants. Skiis on within 100 meters and skiing back to within 50 meters and closer for the more adventurous.

Lovely views from the big balcony of the Mont Chery slopes on the other side of the valley.

All in all a very enjoyable holiday and we would love to stay there again.

Fantastic

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time we had stayed at the apartment which is beautifully presented inside and has lovely views. We like it because it is a little away from the main bustle of the village but within easy walking distance. We wish we had one!
