Chalet in Les Carroz, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Easy access to the skiing and village amenities
Our chalet is a traditional wooden chalet located in a peaceful wooded cul-de-sac in the Les Grangettes area of Les Carroz. Well located being only 6 minutes walk to the telecabine and 10 mins walk to all the amenities of the pretty alpine village of Les Carroz. Set over two floors, the ground floor has open plan living, dining and kitchen area with settees around the warming log burner, wifi and UK TV. The 1st floor has 2 bedrooms, the double bedroom has an ensuite shower room and the second bedroom has two single beds and wardrobe space. There is also a smart, newly refurbished shower room with toilet and basin. There is also an 'under the eaves' space, which children love and can be used as a sleeping or playing area.
The chalet offers a perfect space for socialising and sharing the events of the day or relaxation with a glass of wine.
During Summer or Spring ski breaks there is a pretty and sunny woodland garden with direct access from the large sliding doors from the kitchen. The property is perfect for a family or a group of friends wishing to share an affordable ski chalet in a superb ski area.
There is a pretty wooded sunny garden with a decked area.
The garage houses skis and boots. We also highly recommend the heated ski lockers at the telecabine. Use of these gives you flexibility to walk to and from the chalet or the village in comfortable footwear. If you are a self driver then all the parking is free in Les Carroz and it is just a 2 minute drive to the telecabine parking area.

Super chalet and perfect for a family of 5.
Super chalet, very well equipped and was perfect for our family of 5.
It was really nice to come back after a days skiing and light the wood burner which gave the the whole place a lovely cosy feel.
Although there was not much snow in Les Carroz itself we were able to find pretty good skiing in Flaine. We had a 4x4 vehicle and would probably recommend having one if staying in this chalet in winter.
The only thing missing for us was the use of a washing machine but apart from that everything was perfect!
A snowy week in Les Carroz
Our party of 5 adults had a very good stay at Chalet Alpin. The house is cosy yet pretty spacious downstairs with adequate bedroom space for 6 people.. there are sofa beds downstairs too.. Main bathroom is fine but ensuite is a little tight for taller folk!
The house is situated in a really nice quiet cul de sac, surrounded by trees and neighbouring chalets.. really peaceful. About 15 mins walk to village centre and close to a ski bus stop. Best to have a car though for lugging supplies and people to or from the ski station.
We've been to Les Carroz several times before and like it.. good ski area, nice village centre and some decent eateries (Agora is good).
We'd certainly go back to Chalet Alpin and would recommend it to friends.
Excellent apartment, great location!
We booked through owners direct. Apartment is in the centre of Les carroz and short distance to lifts. The buses are frequent and was much easier and quicker to get a bus to the lifts than walk. Apartment was very well equipped for all our needs, including lots of toys for my 3 year old nephew. Sue popped in to ensure we were all settled in. The apartment has wifi which was a bonus as well. Highly recommend a stay here for a ski holiday.
Spacieux, pratique et charme.
Chalet très bien agencé avec tout le nécessaire.
Couchages de bonne qualité.
L' environnement est calme et l' on peut profiter de la terrasse en toute quiétude.
La propriétaire est à l'écoute et disponible si nécessaire.
Pour nous, le seul point à améliorer est la desserte du chalet par les navettes qui pourraient être plus fréquentes.
Très bon séjour même si la neige n'était pas au rendez vous cette année à la période de Noël
Le chalet est très confortable , très propre et bien aménagé , il y a tout l'équipement nécessaire . Nous avons apprécié que les lits soient faits à notre arrivée . Par contre il est situé un peu loin du centre des Carroz mais on a pu bénéficier des navettes gratuites dont l'arrêt est situé tout près des chalets.
Nous gardons cette adresse pour un éventuel séjour ultérieur.
