About Michele Oakley

Hi! My husband and I both work for a major British airline - and have a passion for travel. We have 2 children, aged 16 and 11, and live in Surrey. Since buying our property we have spent many wonderful holidays in Les Carroz both winter and summer.

We will be more than happy to answer any queries - to ensure that you have the most enjoyable holiday possible in this lovely area.

Michele Oakley purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Michele Oakley chose Flaine - Grand Massif

After staying at a friend's apartment in the same development and being impressed not only with the quality of the build, but also with the area, we decided to buy our own apartment off-plan in 2003. Construction was by a French company MGM - renowned for its quality builds. Since completion in 2004, we have spent many fantastic holidays at the apartment both in winter and summer - and have come to feel very 'at home' in Les Carroz. The apartment's location is so close to the heart of the village square that it's very easy to enjoy the atmosphere and all the facilities on offer.

A super apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a beautiful weeks skiing. This apartment is just perfect. It is fully equipped for a self catering family holiday and is located within walking distance from the ice rink, supermarket, restaurants and bars.

The ski lifts are a 10 minute walk away or a few minutes trip by car or free shuttle bus.

The apartment is spacious, modern, toasty warm and the beds are extremely comfortable. The swimming pool and jacuzzi on site are an added bonus, just perfect after a days skiing.

Booking and organising this trip has been hassle free. Michele, the owner, has been very helpful and is very quick to respond to any questions I have had during the lead up to the holiday.

This was our second visit to Les Carroz, we have stayed in this apartment both times and will definitely be returning again soon.

I couldn't recommend this apartments more!

Fantastic apartment in stunning village

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb apartment and exceptional value. My partner, myself and our three children stayed here for a week in the run up to Christmas. The apartment is traditionally decorated with comfortable, furnishings - ample throws and a lovely L shaped sofa which seated us all. Two bathrooms is a huge bonus , hot water was constant and the heating could be controlled from

room to room. On arrival our hosts had arranged for bread, cheese, wine and other basics to be left for us which was a really kind gesture as they knew we would be arriving late in the evening. Arranging to stay at the apartment was easy, the owners were very helpful and replied to my emails very quickly. The village of Les Carroz is stunning and we had not realised how conveniently set the apartment is within the village. We drove up to Flaine each day but the ski bus goes from the centre of the village, a mere 1 minute walk from the apartment. We had a wonderful stay in Les Carroz and would definitely book this apartment again in the future

The swimming pool and jacuzzi was an added bonus after a long days skiing. Booking was easy and the owner is extremely helpful and welcoming. we can not wait to return next year! 5 stars !

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed in this apartment in January and have just booked again for next year. We would highly recommend it. Comfortably furnished and great location. The apartment had everything we needed and the swimming pool was an added bonus. Michele was great to deal with and very helpful. Great price too. The fact that we have booked for next year says it all!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the apartment for a long weekend with my partner, 2 year old son and my parents. The apartment was exactly as described and perfect for the 5 of us.

The property had a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of towels and extra bed linen if required. The property and surrounding area's were clean and well maintained. We used the indoor pool and jacuzzi which was great for a late afternoon swim.

The apartment was in an excellent location just a few minutes walk from Les Carroz village square. The ski cable car was running which was a just a few minutes drive from the apartment. We also used the outdoor swimming pool centre which again was just a few minutes walk from the apartment and which our 2 year old son loved.

Michele and Ian couldn't have been more helpful both before and during our stay. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family and we are looking to return in the winter to sample the resort in the winter.

A great family holiday.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent value apartment! Stayed with a friend and had the place to ourselves although would comfortably sleep 4. Fully equipped apartment with a large flatscreen TV, all kitchen utensils as needed, large fridge, 4 ring hob and microwave. We stayed in and cooked every night to save money and had no difficulties making dinner. There's a small Spar just round the corner and a large Spar 10minutes walk away.

The location is great for the centre (2mins) where the ski bus stops. We chose to walk to the gondola every day as a warm up but be warned, as with most accommodation in Les Carroz, it's a good 15 minute walk uphill so definitely take advantage of the ski lockers at the gondola if you plan to walk.

Michele was fantastic to deal with - very accommodating and easy going which made the whole booking process that much more enjoyable. Highly recommended!

TRAVEL

Geneva is the nearest airport 73km approx 45min drive. If hiring a car we recommend hiring from the Swiss side, although prices may seem slightly higher it is a lot easier to exit from Swiss side and rental prices will include the Swiss motorway pass.

There are many private transfer companies available we recommend 'Gomassif'.

Ski schools in the resort Nouvelle Dimensions and ESF both recommended.
