About Chris Mason

BOOKING SECURITY:

We are very aware of recent news stories of fraudulent activity on certain holiday home websites. We do not take any bookings or deposits without first making our guests aware of our land line telephone numbers and our UK residential address. We are also very happy to provide you with copies of documents confirming our personal details. We never ask for payment to be made directly to our bank accounts, everything passes through the HomeAway website, affording you additional security. We understand your concerns and will do everything we can to minimise these, just ask us for any additional documents you feel are necessary before going ahead and booking.

We live in West London, where Chris works as an accountant and Kitty runs her own children's nursery. We have two sons, now both in their mid 20's. We are both passionate about skiing and walking and want others to share our enjoyment of our wonderful apartment.

Chris Mason purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Chris Mason chose Flaine - Grand Massif

Having skied in many French resorts, as well as elsewhere in Europe and in Canada, we wanted to buy somewhere that was easily accessible by car and by plane and which provided first rate skiing covering an extensive area. The apartment can be reached in just 6 hours from Central London, or about 11 hours if driving. Geneva airport is very well served by most UK airports as well as by many airports in the rest of Europe.

The apartment is at an altitude of 1650 metres and the ski area extends above 2300 metres, providing near guaranteed skiing throughout the season.

The development is managed by Pierres & Vacances, the very large French leisure and property group, and was originally built by Intrawest, a Canadian company. Completed in 2009, the development reflects the high standards typical of North American resorts and has 5* Residence de Tourisme status.

What makes this apartment unique

Ski in ski out was essential and Flaine Montsoleil offers this and lots more. The heated outdoor swimming pool may not be very eco-friendly but there is nothing to beat lying in the pool or relaxing in the jacuzzi after a day's skiing. If you have not had enough exercise during the day you can visit the fitness centre, located just above the jacuzzi and steam room.

If driving there, whether from the airport or elsewhere, you can park your car about 30 metres from the apartment door, all on the same level. The private ski locker is located just two floors up with direct access to the piste.

Reception is open 24/7 and is available to order fresh bread for the morning, pre-order your ski passes and to deal with any questions you may have. A new restaurant and bar facility opened in December 2013, providing the opportunity to share your day's experiences with other guests.

There are activities available most evenings for all ages, including crepe making, snow shoe walking and entertainers.

July and August offers many different activities. The beautiful scenery has to be seen to be believed and the walking can be as leisurely or as challenging as you choose to make it. The main lift in Flaine opens for the summer season, the views from the top of the cable car across to Mont Blanc are truly stunning. Alternatively, drive for 15 minutes down to Carroz and many more lifts are open with mountain biking and paragliding available.

The apartment is available to let from Saturday to Saturday or from Sunday to Sunday if available and by arrangement with the owners. Leaving on a Sunday provides the opportunity to ski on Saturday, the quietest day of the week, and to leave the resort when the roads are less congested.

Brilliant apartment in a very family friendly holiday village.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment. Great to have two very well appointed bathrooms and comfy living areas. Kitchen has everything you need, beds are comfy.

Montesoliel has a mini bus that ferries residents around the resort with brilliant efficiency. The bread deliveries are great - set them up before 7pm.

The snow wasn't great so we had to use ski bus but the resort staff did their best to make the most of what snow we had.

We had a lovely week - would heartily recommend.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had such a brilliant summer holiday in and around flaine. There are so many nice walks to do in such a peaceful location with places like Chamonix and Geneva only a short distance away.the apartment was amazing; had everything we needed, loads of space and is kitted out to such a high standard.cant fault it at all!owners were very helpful with suggestions for things to do before we left.the hotel facilities were great too and it was well worth eating at the hotel restaurant.a spar and a bakery was only a 5-10 min walk away and there are a couple of larger supermarkets at the foot of the mountain before you ascend.this was out first Alps summer holiday and certainly won't be out last.will will definitely stay here again!

In one word: GREAT

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this appartment in Flaine. Enough space for four persons, specially for french locations. Very nice decorated, just as is shown at pictures. Also the kitchen was well equipped, although we did not cook that much this time.

Ski in - ski out was important for us, and we were not disappointed at all. Bus-service around Flaine is working very well. And in the evening the P&V taxi shuttle is a perfect solution.

We will definitely come back for our ski holidays.

Lovely apartment with plenty of room in a stunning complex. Convenient to the slopes and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in January 2016 on our first skiing holiday as a family and we loved every minute of it!

Apartment was nice and homely and kitchen was kitted out well.

The Apartment is part of a wonderful complex with fantastic facilities - including an outdoor pool, and sauna, steam room etc. The kids loved it - an idea way to relax after a hard day skiing!

Great bus service from right outside the apartment down to the slopes and the apartment block also ran a private mini bus service in the evenings - very useful!

We will definitely go back!
