About the Owner
About Angela Ross
We are a farming family who enjoy the countryside and the very many benefits of living and working in Dumfries and Galloway.
Our other passion is skiing and we have combined our ideal ski holiday destination with our holiday let experience for you also to enjoy.
Angela Ross purchased this apartment in 2012
Why Angela Ross chose Flaine - Grand Massif
As a family who all love skiing we enjoy nothing more than skiing the Grand Massif. It has the fantastically long ski season interlinked with Flaine yet the small village feel that Les Carroz offers. The skiing has something for everyone of all abilities.
The closeness of Les Carroz to Geneva is its biggest advantage. It can be driven in well under an hour and Geneva is accessible from a vast array of UK airports.
During the summer months Les Carroz inhabitants really come to life. July and August sees an ever increasing amount of open air entertainment in the village and with the telecabines open, the mountains are amazingly accessible on foot or mountain bike.
With local shops owned by local people (butchers, bakers, creperies) there really is no need to leave the village.
What makes this apartment unique
Le Fayard is an ideal location for families and groups alike. It is situated on a quiet avenue just off the main road to Les Carroz and is ideal for children.
A short walk will take you into the town centre where there are a number of varying bars and restaurants to choose from. The apartment is also a short walk from the new outdoor and indoor leisure centre featuring swimming pools, tennis and volleyball courts, tree trecking and many more family activities.
The apartment is modern and airy and the floor to ceiling windows let in much sunshine. The two south facing balconies are ideal for summer and winter use with the wrap around bedroom balcony giving couples some space to relax.

Very well set up, perfect for a family holiday in the alps
Great from the start to the end, all Angie's communications were excellent; she answered questions promptly and all the instructions were perfect. The apartment is a good size with a nice big bathroom and double bedroom with a smaller bunk room and a bed in the hallway which joins the bedrooms and bathroom. We didn't use the sofa bed in the lounge as we were just a party of 5. The lounge and kitchen are great with everything you could possibly need including WIFi and UK TV. Great selection of DVDs too. We walked into Les Carroz along the separate footpath which takes about 10 mins, the town is nice with a few good bars and restaurants. For those who prefer to travel on a budget (like us) the Spar around the corner from the apartment is big and has everything you'll need to self cater. Driving to the main lift in the morning takes about 5 mins and with 500 spaces you should be fine as long as you arrive by 9 or 10am. Overall, a lovely, quiet, clean, well appointed apartment with owners who clearly want their guests to enjoy the experience of staying in their super property. We'd love to go again.
Fantastic Summer Holiday
This is a great apartment for a holiday with everything you need inside. It is in a nice peaceful location but within easy walking distance to the lovely village of Les Carroz. Also within walking distance is a lovely outdoor pool and high rope activity and there is lots of other things to do for all the family. The gondola trip up the mountain in Les Carroz is also a must where you will find a number of hiking routes and a great café! The apartment is in a great location and within easy reach of Chamonix, Lake Geneva, Lake Annecy and all the beautiful mountain passes and villages. If you are into cycling (and hills), I would recommend taking or hiring a bike. We had great communication from the owner Angie, who passed on useful tips and advice on the local area before we travelled. A brilliant summer holiday which we would recommend to others.
Cosy, everything you need in a beautiful area
The apartment has everything we needed for a great week skiing in Les Carroz. Spacious for four people and fine for the five of us. Great shower, warm and very well equipped with satellite TV. The ten to fifteen minute walk to the town is pleasant and by a well lit path close to the road, supermarket close by. We did feel the benefit of having a car to get to and from car park at main cabin and to nip up to the bakery for fresh croissants.Our fourth visit to the area and would definitely stay in this apartment again. Owners very helpful too. Margaret Reid
Unfortunately I was unable to stay at the apartment due to my flights being cancelled. However the owner (Angie) was first class in helping me with insurance claims and cancellation etc. All previous correspondence was quick and helpful and the booking process was simple. I would highly recommend booking this property as the owners were very nice and genuinely just wanted you to have a great holiday. I will definitely book again in the future.
This apartment was serene, clean and incredibly well appointed. We arrived from a hot busy Paris so the peace and quiet of the Alps was much needed and this apartment delivered everything we wanted with great views of the mountains, a small but interesting village nearby, outdoor pool with views of mountains as you swim, good places to eat, plenty of activities and best of all, a cool and quiet night's sleep!
Close enough to Annecy which is stunning and Geneva for day trips and an easy drive from Geneva airport.
We enjoyed our week-long stay so much we're considering a winter holiday next!
Perfect for a family, group of friends or anyone really who's looking for a great break in the mountains.
a wonderful discovery
I'll preface this by saying that I am often described (by my family!) as a grumpy old man and by my own admission am cynical in nature and usually take with a pinch of salt any review that award maximum marks regardless of what context, believing the reviewer to have let their emotions run away with themselves or worse simply be a personal friend of the hotelier, etc. So for me to award top marks myself is a rarity but one justified in this case nonetheless; we stumbled upon this apartment by chance when searching the web and contacted the owner. Mrs Scott has been an absolute gem to deal with throughout, including going way beyond the call of duty to forward on to us a bag of dirty washing we had foolishly left when packing the car! As for the apartment itself, it is accurately described and ever bit as comfortable as the other reviews suggest - we are mum, dad and five kids, and had a wonderful time, Thank You.
