About the property

Apartment in Les Carroz, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Perfect Location For Alpine Winter Or Summer Holidays

This charming apartment is at the bottom of the ski slopes in an attractive, welcoming resort in the Grand Massif ski area, which boasts 265km of pistes. Les Carroz is arguably the most accessible ski resort at this height (1100m at resort level) from Geneva airport (transfer time of under one hour). It is also well placed for a journey to the Alps via the Eurotunnel. Les Carroz also offers a vast number of services and activities for your summer holiday. The apartment is a short 15 minute walk from the town centre with all its amenities.

About Helen Rodger

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.

Helen Rodger purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Helen Rodger chose Flaine - Grand Massif

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

What makes this apartment unique

On the piste: the apartment is in one of the few buildings in Les Carroz with easy access to the pistes, just 300m from the main gondola - no need to get on a ski bus!

Short 15 minute walk to the town centre: Les Carroz is an attractive, family friendly town with a huge variety of restaurants, a cinema, and many shops. Unlike some purpose built resorts, Les Carroz has a year-round thriving, residential community. You can be sure of a warm welcome, whenever you visit.

Travel:

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.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: A ski locker is available for use by guests in the basement of the building. The apartment was refurbished in 2013, so we hope you will enjoy all the home comforts provided. Outside: The south facing balcony provides useful additional space in good weather. Enjoy alfresco dining for up to 6 people in the sunshine, or just make yourself comfortable for a lovely read. The view of the mountains from the apartment is beautiful - please see the photographs for proof. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Why pay for towels and bedding which you don't need? Linen will therefore be charged pro rata according to the number of people in your party - prices available on request. An additional £45 is charged for cleaning at the end of the holiday. Other: Hallway also has fitted wardrobes, coat rack, shelving for ski helmets etc.
