Large, Homely And Spacious Apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Apartment in Les Deux Alpes, Isere, Rhone-Alpes, France - Excellent Location, Close To All Amenities And Lifts/Slopes/Ski School Meeting Places

Le Cairn is a lovely, family friendly apartment with a great, homely 'feel'. It's been partially refurbished, and although not a 'slick' interior it has all the mod cons that one expects. It's clean and comfortable. Being on the third floor, it's not noisy from the road and bars. It has a really big ski/board locker complete with cupboard for wet jackets and shelves for boots. Everything you need is close by, shops, tourist office, bars, restaurants and skiing. Our family have been using this apartment for many years, and have always had wonderful holidays there. The refurbishments have made a huge difference as well.

November 2016 has seen brand new double glazed french windows throughout.

About the Owner

Our family consists of Mum, Dad and 3 kids. We live and work in the UK, but get down to LDA whenever we can - finances permitting it! Whenever we talk about holidays with the kids they always want to go back to LDA which suits us. With great skiing in winter, and too much to do in the summer to list, it's a fantastic place to take our holidays. As this area of France gets an average of 300 days sunshine a year, it's a perfect antidote to the miserable English weather!

Great Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely family apartment in a really good location. We stayed for a week last year and the apartment was lovely, very clean and tidy everything where it should be. Plenty of extra throws and blankets if needed but heating was good.

The area is very picturesque with amazing views of the local mountains which are snow covered all year round. The ski resort is roughly a 5 minute walk as is the town centre, lots to do bars, clubs, cafes, swimming pool, ice rink, etc etc. Below the apartment there is two really nice restaurants serving local food and some nice wine. Management was brilliant, we had some car trouble and Charlotte helped us to get a part needed to get us on our way, 10 out of 10. I would definitely recommend this property and i have already booked for this coming march for a week.

Location

From the Owner

We first went to LDA on a ski trip organised by a friend, but loved the place so much we went back the following year. The following summer we went to have a look at the summer skiing and were astonished at the size of the ski area in July/August. It's perfect for young kids to learn in the summer as they can ski all morning and be in the pool in the afternoon. Its a great resort to relax and unwind with a such a friendly atmosphere and a good mix of restaurants.

Facilities

From the Owner

It is a roomy apartment - we have stayed there with the In-laws over a New Year (4 adults and 5 kids altogether) and didn't struggle for room. The restaurant on the ground floor serves great pizzas (plus take away) as well as pierades (hot stone) and fondues. There is no real problem with noise of an evening as it's on the 3rd floor and with a fantastic view across the village to the slopes -it's my screen saver!
