About Martin Bierton

I live and work in England as does my wife Janet. We both love the outdoor life that the mountains in both winter and summer offer.

Martin Bierton purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Martin Bierton chose Les Carroz d'Arâches

When the opportunity came in the year 2000 to visit my cousin who lives in the traditional French alpine village of Les Carroz, we came and fell in love with the area. By chance we looked at a property that seemed to 'find us' and have been spending as much time there as work will allow ever since.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is a few minutes walk to the Telecabine and to the village centre. Fantastic views from the south facing balcony.
