We stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks with our 3 kids (12,9,8) with 2 in the second bedroom and one using the new sofa bed. We found the apartment both comfortable and practical. We hired a car from Geneva and used it to store the skis and boots and drove it to the lift every day - having the parking space really helped as the boots did not freeze overnight! Carroz is a beautiful resort with nice bars and restaurants and fantastic skiing, although not ski-in-ski-out Annabel's apartment is perfectly situated for accessing all the resort has to offer and combined with the access to the pool, sauna and steam rooms is the ideal place to stay - even with 3 kids!

Great area for a summer break

  • 5 of 5

Lovely base for a summer holiday. Lots of walks of varying challenge right from the village; white water rafting and mountain biking/scootering also locally; short drive from the Mont Blanc range with various great options for sightseeing there. Apartment very well equipped and nicely presented; compact but perfectly big enough for our family with two adult kids.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here February half term and was perfect for our family of 4. Exactly as the description says a cozy, compact apartment and a perfect location for a weeks Skiing. We hired a heated locker at the telecabin and walked there each morning but the Ski bus does stop outside the apartments. Very central for everything and we didn't need to use our car at all during the week. The Apartment is close to the Ice rink which it overlooks and there is a very short walk to the swimming pool and local shops. We would definitely stay here again and the owners were very helpful in arranging everything.

About Annabel

My name is Annabel and with my husband Micah and 2 children we have enjoyed 14 years of fantastic skiing holidays in Les Carroz. We live in Surrey and all have a passion for travelling.

Annabel purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Annabel chose Les Carroz d'Arâches

We chose Les Carroz because it is not a purpose built resort, but a French village which is busy all year round and is very "French"! The village itself is fairly small and now our children are a little older, they are able to walk to shops etc in the knowledge that they are safe and not going to get lost! The ski area accommodates for all abilities -( the children started in ski school at the age of 4 )- and provides skiing late into the season with Flaine being easily accessible.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is a short walk form a well stocked supermarket, the main village square and bars and restaurants. It is in walking distance from nearest ski lift or if you prefer, the free ski bus stops right outside the apartment. Having been to many resorts, we love the proximity of all you need and feel it ticks all the boxes!
