About the Owner

Jo and Adam live in Devon with their 3 girls, Jessie, Ava and Edie. Adam is a semi-retired snowboarder and apart from Edie, who is too small, the whole family now ski.

David and Lindsay live in Brighton with their 2 children, Thomas and Emily. Lindsay is a former seasonaire, snowboarder and skier, and David is an avid skier.

We bought Apartment Marmottes earlier this year as our first ski venture, so that our families can enjoy this amazing resort more often. We hope you enjoy it just as much.

The Wests

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 1week early March. We loved our skiing holiday, great weather conditions and apartment ideally situated for the ski bus, slopes and town centre. Very easy transfers to and from airport and use of adjoining pool and spa a bonus. Apartment was clean and comfortable and worked well with ski storage etc . The space was adequate for 4 adults but for 6 and if cooking large meals, it might be tight. Jo was great and we would recommend staying here. We would return.

Fabulous location, wonderful facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time! Was amazed at how close everything was! The ski area is huge the bus stop is a few steps out of the apartment. The apartment itself is cosy, well equipped and all you need for a week of skiing. The key lock worked really well as you don't need to take your key up the mountain at the risk of loosing it. I particularly enjoyed using the hot tubs and Turkish Saunas. Exactly what you need after a day on the slopes. The staff at reception were lovely and all spoke good English. It was great to be able to order fresh bread and croissants from them too! All in all, a great break before Christmas. Thank you for all the information, Jo!

A great apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in this great apartment. There was so much to do so close by and although we were there for 10 days there was plenty more we missed! The pool which is about 30 paces from the apartment is super and the town has some good restaurants which cater brilliantly for families. We can't wait to go again!

Lovely apartment in delightful Alpine town

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently returned from a wonderful summer trip to Les Carroz where we stayed in the lovely Apartment Marmottes. While basic, the apartment has everything you will need for your stay, and with so much to see and do in the local area, we were hardly even there! The listing description was helpful, and the owners were very quick to reply with any additional requests or questions we had. The swimming pool and spa are practically next door to the apartment, and were a great way to relax after a day exploring the mountains. The town (Les Carroz) itself was larger and busier than we had anticipated, with plenty of bars and restaurants to visit (be sure to try the ice-creams at Le Marlow), while the stage in the main square was a great source of lively evening entertainment! There was also a typical French market on one of the mornings (I think Wednesday). Annecy, Geneva and Chamonix are all easy to get to by car, and are well worth a visit. Also be sure to head up the gondola - it's lovely exploring the higher mountains, which afford great views of the Alps, and it's a pleasant (but challenging) walk back down! While we didn't have time (or the nerves!) to try paragliding, it's certainly a very popular summer activity in the area. We did, however, manage to go white-water rafting, which was great fun! We would definitely recommend a visit to Les Carroz, and Apartment Marmottes would certainly provide a great base from which to explore the Alps!

Location

From the Owner

Les Carroz has everything you could want from a town, for children and adults. Great restaurants and bars, outdoor ice skating rink, a luxurious spa with indoor and outdoor pools overlooking the slopes. The location is perfect, just 50m from the town centre, and 10m from the ski bus stop (or 400m to the nearest list if you want to walk to the ski lift). The town has several good ski rental and clothing shops, a good mix of small supermarkets and local food shops for all daily essentials. Le Grand Massif is one of the largest linked ski regions in Europe, so whatever your level and style, you will not be bored.

Apartment Marmottes is located in the centre of Les Carroz, 500m from the nearest ski lift, and with a regular free shuttle bus to the ski lifts just 30 seconds from the apartment.

We fell in love with Les Carroz the first time we visited, and our friends felt exactly the same. We had said for years that we wanted to try different resorts each year, however, Les Carroz has everything that you could possibly want as a family or as a group of friends.

Les Carroz is part of the Grand Massif ski area, one of the largest in the French Alps and located in Haute-Savoie, just 40 minutes from Geneva. Grand Massif combined ski passes link the 5 resorts of Flaine, Samoens, Morillon, Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval and Les Carroz d'Araches.

With 165 miles of piste, the area provides a tremendous variety of on- and off-piste skiing and boarding, beautiful scenery and a wide range of other activities on and off the mountain including swimming, fitness and spas.

In the summer season, there are stunning views for walkers and runners, and a wide range of challenging climbs (and fabulous descents) for road and mountain bike enthusiasts.

Les Carroz has a creche (French-run, English-speaking) for Under-3's, and a Kid's Club for 3 to 9-year olds, which can be coordinated easily with the ski school. We used ESF.

Our youngest was in the creche for a full-day, and the 4 year-old in ski school, where after a morning of skiing she would be collected by Lupiots Kid's Club and taken to the Club for the afternoon. Creche and Kid's Club are 400m apart, which allowed us to ski all day and collect the kids easily on our way home.

Links to ESF, La Souris Verte (Creche), and Lupiots Kid's Club can be found at the Maps and Info page.
