About the Owner

A professional landlady with a number of rental properties in the U.K. We have enjoyed many winter and summer holidays over the years in Les Carroz in the Grand Massif, Haute Savoie. Now that the children are older, and we can go to our apartment less, we wanted to share all the fun of the French Alps with others. If you choose our apartment for your holiday, we hope you have an amazing stay and a truly memorable trip.

A home from home

  • 4 of 5

I highly recommend Helen's flat!! Competitively priced, superbly located for summer and winter, splendidly equipped with all the facilities an English visitor would need. Cosy and warm with easy access; a quiet location with direct access to the piste. Although we knew the village reasonably well, Helen helped by answering all those trivial questions that we travellers need to bottom out. We will certainly be going there again.

Perfect skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Front de Neige is an ideal base for ski in ski out and Helens flat on the first floor is easily accessible. Although its a big complex it was surprisingly quiet during March. The flat is spacious and nicely furnished and has a very homely feel. It is well equipped with plenty of crockery, utensils, dishwasher and has a new kitchen and bathroom - lovely to have plenty of hot water in relaxing bath after a day on the slopes. I slept on the top bunk bed which was very comfy. Lovely outlook from balcony over mountains and village which is a 10 minute walk if you dont have a car plus the free navette shuttle bus runs regularly to the centre and the telecabine. Helen is very helpful and a pleasure to do business with and I would love to re-visit.

***useful additions might be a clock and a full length mirror

Great Ski Appartment

  • 5 of 5

As a group of dads and lads on a half term ski break the apartment gave us superb access to the slopes, direct from the door of the apartment block. With Les Carroz being in my view the best link into the 250km Grand Massif ski area the location is almost unbeatable (unless you like the purpose built concrete blocks of Flaine). Apartment has enough space for families or small groups and is equipped with new appliances of a high standard. Village centre is friendly and provides all day to day needs and is 15 min walk - less if you short cut the winding road via the nursery slopes. Ski bus does come to within 200m of apartment if you time it right. Owner and local agents very helpful and efficient. Difficult to fault - so I won't

what a holiday

  • 4 of 5

What a holiday, we stuck it lucky with the best conditions for over 10 years.

The resort if you don't know it is simply beautiful.

The apartment was perfect with ski in/out.

Just step out the back door ski through a small section of trees and your on the piste or take a one minute walk to the Milk bar that joins another.

The apartment is perfectly equipped with everything you need and a real homely feel. Big deep bath and power shower, a must.

Helen was massively helpful giving loads of inside info .

It is a stroll back up from the town after a night out but there are local restaurants close by and food delivery if your are to exhausted after a brilliant days boarding.

Gi for it you won't be disappointed.

Alex & Tasha.

Excellent Ski Appartment

  • 5 of 5

Having been to several skiing apartments in the last twelve years two in Carroz, Helen's place was excellent for us,very clean and tidy,warm plenty of hot water,very well equipped and everything was in good working order.

Access to the hill is good being ski in/out,ski to telecabin1minute,walk into the village by road 10/15 minutes via piste5/10minutes.

Helen has agreed a 20%discount for everyone using her place for skiing at Carroz Sports which we took advantage of, we found them very helpful and friendly!!They are literally 5minutes away at the bottom of the Figaro piste

There is car parking if required, sorting the keys at start and end of stay was easy, we found Helen very easy to deal with in every aspect of our stay and wouldn't hesitate to use her place again.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous skiing break in Les Carroz along with our two children aged 15 and 12.

The apartment was clean, modern and well equipped with lots of storage space throughout. A good location with just a short walk to pick up the free shuttle bus to the centre of the village and ski lifts. We enjoyed the lovely view of the mountains from the balcony.

The owner is friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. The security deposit system worked well and was promptly returned.

We would recommend the apartment and will definitely consider it for future trips to the Grand Massif ski area.

Owner's Response: It is great to read such a lovely first review, as this is our first season of renting out our apartment. Also we are delighted that everthing went smoothly from the reviewer's perspective, and that the return of the security deposit was all in order. We love holidaying in Les Carroz, and it is great to know that others enjoy it too :)

Location

From the Owner

Short transfer times: Les Carroz is one of the most accessible ski resorts in the French Alps from the U.K. whether by car or plane. Less than one hour by car from Geneva. Arguably the closest resort at this height (1100m in the town centre) to the Eurotunnel. Wonderful ski area: the Grand Massif has 265 km of pistes. Les Carroz is linked to the resorts of Samoens, Morillon and Flaine. The skiing caters for all levels from beginners through to experts. Superb destination for a summer holiday too: hiking, cycling, downhill biking, outdoor swimming pool and spa complex in Les Carroz with many opportunities to explore the Alps and Switzerland nearby

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 70 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Les Servages d'Armelle at 50 Metres Nearest Golf : Flaine at 18 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Les Servages d'Armelle at 50 Metres Nearest Ski : Figaro piste at 5 Metres Car: not necessary

Travel:

Geneva Airport - transfer of under one hour by car

Distance to Calais (Euro tunnel) - 870km - driving time of circa 8 hours

A hire car is not required in Les Carroz, as you can shop etc. by foot or using the free, resort bus service. However, hiring a car does mean that you can explore thoroughly this wonderful corner of the Alps.

Distances:

Winter - other ski resorts within daytrip distance: Chamonix (47km), Les Gets (26km), Morzine (33km), Les Contamines (43km), La Clusaz (53km). We have even ventured further afield to resorts such as Verbier (110km) as a day trip.

Summer - All the resorts named above are interesting destinations in their own right in the summer, as well as Lake Geneva etc. However the Giffre Valley (Samoens, Morillon, Sixt) is a particular favourite of ours offering a wide variety of outdoor activities.

Further Details:

A 24/7 English/French speaking support service is available in the resort for guests of our apartment.

Les Carroz has 2 small supermarkets in the centre of town: Casino and Spar. There is a larger Spar and petrol station just outside the town on the road down the mountain.

There are 2 cash points in the town and a large choice of restaurants and bars to suit all budgets.
