Why Jo Ramsden chose Flaine - Grand Massif

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.

What makes this apartment unique

- Super short transfer from Geneva - 45 minutes

- Traditional town with all amenities

- Ground floor apartment with terrace

- Outdoor skating rink just 25m from the door

- Private boot room

- Swimming pool, gym and spa exclusively for use by the apartment complex

- Larger sports centre / luxury spa in town (800m)

- Completely walkable

- Huge area of skiing - Le Grand Massif (including Flaine, Samoens)

Half Term Skiing 2017

Great apartment – ideally located very close to the centre of town and the shops/restaurants and ice rink. Really handy for the ski bus (we always got a seat!). It was also great to have use of the gym, pool and pool table in the complex. We will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: So lovely to hear fab things about our apartment, thank you. Glad you enjoyed the pool and gym, I hope you found the sauna and steam rooms too?? If not next time, we'd love to have you back as soon as you are ready. Don't leave it too late though, we only had 2 weeks of the season available by Christmas this year!

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a lovely time and enjoyed the skiing. It is perfect to get on the slopes or pop into town and as you've said, ideal for 4 or 6 at a squeeeeeeze. We love it and hope you will come and stay again next year. Thank you. Jo

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!
