Great Spot for Portes du Soleil ski area

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment in Seytroux which is well positioned to enjoy the slopes of Port Soleil. It is about 10mins drive from three or four lifts that can take you up to Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets missing the main lift crowds in Morzine.

Owners were really helpful with recommendations and professional. The apartment was clean and spacious and the quietness of Seytroux is very relaxing after a hard days ski.

We booked with a group of friends but this would also work well for families. 10/10 and will go back.

The apartment was super and just what we had been looking for - about an hour from geneva, spacious, clean, a short drive to epic on and off piste powder via linderets and there is a supermarche on the drive home. Ask the owner for off-piste routes and also a decent ski hire shop as they are a bit hit and miss - especially when the powder is deep. Will be going back for sure.

Super view, peaceful location and penthouse living

  • 5 of 5

Being the penthouse suite with a mezzanine level you do feel like the rockstar in this development. The view is great from the apartment, there's plenty of space for a large group and it's got everything you need to make your holiday comfortable.

Everyone had nice hot showers (something we've struggled with in other places), the beds were good and rooms large - although do mind your head on the rafters if you're on the clumsy side!

First time we'd ski'd in the Portes du Soleil region and was really impressed. The resort is close to the apartment and much bigger than I expected, with food and drink very reasonably priced compared to other French resorts.

Lovely and spacious flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here, the apartment is perfect for families or groups of friends looking to ski in the area.

The bedrooms and living room are very spacious and comfortable, which made it perfect for relaxing on our evenings in. The living room's large windows have beautiful valley views and the apartment is conveniently located just 15 mins from the lift to Lindarets (where there is also a large free parking lot). Will definitely be returning!

Spacious alpine retreat in Portes du Soleil

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a small group of friends early in the season and we struggled to fill the apartment. It has large bedrooms and a huge open-plan living space with a double-height ceiling. The kitchen is full size for cooking big evening meals and the lounge has three sofas to collapse on.

The chalet is 5 minutes drive to Morzine (lift from there to Avoriaz) and Les Gets giving quick access to a variety of mountain - go where the conditions are best. And it's only an hour or so from Geneva, making it an easy transfer for a quick escape.

Portes du Soleil is a great ski area where a group of us ski each year, it offers the full range of mountain from fast tree-lined runs if the visibility is poor to high mountain for the softest powder.
