About Mark Corson

I live and work in England with my 2 children. We love to holiday in France, and fell in love with the small ski village of Oz, when we visited as a late booking a few years ago.

Mark Corson purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Mark Corson chose Isere

We loved this quiet ski village when we first visited, and have been really impressed with the access to the pistes. Now that we have been in the summer we realise that there is so much to do in the area too.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the location, right in the centre of the village, easy to get to the ski lifts, but close to the shops and facilities. Really easy to get back to the apartment at lunch time too, helps to keep the costs down, if you don't want to eat up the mountain. We are continuing to upgrade the apartment but have already fitted new bathrooms, a new kitchen and flooring. So all the big things have been done in the last couple of years, but continuing to make smaller improvements.

Fantastic Apartment, immaculate, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay, the apartment is ski in, ski out with views of the mountains from two sides of the living area. Clean, well equipped, warm, comfy. 5 adults stayed for the week and we had plenty of room. The only reason I wouldn't recommend the apartment is that I don't want it to get fully booked!!

Perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our family of 5. It was very well positioned and even though there was not a lot of snow this year it was still very convenient for shops, restaurants and gondola's. It had the best equipped kitchen I have ever experienced in a rental place and a brilliant DVD collection that kept all of us happy for the week. It felt spacious and it was great to have a good sized dinning table we could all eat at. We would love to return and would recommend it whole heartedly. Mark the owner was great from start to finish helping us out with all sorts of things. The apartment is clearer well taken car of and all linen and towels were of a very comfortable standard. It's a great place for a family holiday.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful alpine village

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well appointed and well-maintained with all the luxuries you could ask for. The location was perfect being 20m from ski school, a lift ride to the bakery, 30m from the supermarche, 20m from two ski rental shops and no more than 100m from both ski lifts. It looks over the pretty village of Oz so you can see when the gondola starts operating in the morning. The gondola gives you a 15 minute ride to the main Alp d'Huez slopes with slopes all the way back home. The village is quiet but with all the amenities you could require. We will definitely return!!

Super apartment, perfect position

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 2 or 3 times before. It's clean, comfortable very well equipped - all you need and more. We know Oz is compact but this place is superbly positioned - seconds from the best pub, the Sherpa, ski shop and car park lift. Its balcony must give some of the best views in Oz.

Ski out and back to locker room. Good customer service from

friendly owner. We are back again this season.

Top Quality

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment three times, twice for mountain biking in the summer months and once for skiing.

If you want a 5 star pad then this is the place. The apartment has all you need with everything at a very high standard. It is very clean and well maintained and has great views. It is situated in a very convenient location, walk out the door with your ski boots on to either of the cable cars.

A Patisserie is on the ground floor so you can have fresh baked croissants for breakfast, also a well-stocked supermarket across the road. Good restaurants too.

For summer months there is a great variety of mountain bike routes, excellent downhill riding and cross country trails. Brilliant!!,
