About Ray and Pat Ruocco

We are an older couple who love skiing and have instilled the same love of skiing into our two grown up children who still regularly come on holidays with us to our apartment. They have brought their friends with them over the years and we have had many wonderful holidays together in this resort. We live in England but also have family connections in Italy.

Ray and Pat Ruocco purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Ray and Pat Ruocco chose The Three Valleys

We purchased the apartment in 2007 because of its position and quick access to extensive skiing and have been holidaying in Brides les Bains every year since. We still not managed to cover all the ski runs.

We liked the apartment because it was spacious, well furnished, comfortable and we could accommodate friends as well as our two children.

What makes this apartment unique

We have enjoyed the convenience of travel to the apartment by all modes of travel -car, plane and train. We often hire a car if we travel by air as it is very convenient

to use for transfers, shopping or getting to other ski areas.

In the summer, particularly, we use it for sight seeing and visiting local beauty spots such as Lake Annecy. The train journey by Eurostar or TGV is also particularly enjoyable

Lovely 2-Bed Apartment Easy Access To 3 Valleys Skiing And Mountain Views
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Beautiful apartment, spacious and very clean

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this apartment if you want value for money and don't mind the gondola ride to Meribel. We enjoyed all that the The Three Valleys has to offer in the way of skiing and atmosphere without the excessive prices. We ate out in Brides les Bains several evenings which we could never afford in Meribel. There are also some good bars and live music in the village.
