Excellent base from which to explore the French Alps
We had a great summer holiday in Les Carroz. The apartment was a great find: small but clean and well-equipped and in a great, quiet location just outside Les Carroz. There's a well-stocked shop/petrol station nearby, and it's a short (10-15 min) walk or a 2 min drive into the village where there are a range of other shops, a tourist information office, swimming pool/sports complex and cable car. We found everything we needed in the apartment for self-catering and we enjoyed relaxing in the evenings with the board games (esp. Monopoly!), the selection of DVDs, UK TV and Wi-Fi.
The British owners were very helpful in quickly answering our questions before our trip. We really appreciated the great advice about things to do, on how to find the car rental desk on the French side of Geneva airport (see below), and also the information concerning the Swiss vignette (sticker needed to drive on the Swiss motorways). Our advice: if you hire a car, check if there is already a current year sticker on the windscreen. If you're lucky as we were, you can save money and stress).
We found lots to do in the area without driving miles. We enjoy walking, so we bought a pack of local walks and maps in the Les Carroz/Araches area. Some you can do straight from the apartment, or by taking the cable car (the Telecabine) from Les Carroz. If you enjoy alpine flower meadows and butterflies, you're in for a treat! We also took the cable car from nearby Flaine up to 2500 m, from where you can enjoy an incredible view of the Mont Blanc range. We also really enjoyed walking at Sixt-fer-à-Cheval, with its amazing waterfalls. The whole valley Samöens/Sixt valley (about 30 mins by car) was beautiful and worth exploring. The more adventurous can also go paragliding, white water rafting and mountain biking, all from Les Carroz.
For the benefit of others, here's Angie's advice on finding the the car hire on the French part of Geneva airport (ignore any signs for car rental!):
'Collect luggage and exit baggage collection. Turn left and head up escalators to departures. Once at top turn right and walk to far right top corner where you will go through French security doors and you are at car hire. Collect keys and car park on bottom floor. Once in car exit airport. When you get to main road turn right and drive through Swiss border, through tunnel and then follow signs for France. On return put French side address into sat nav. It will be on car hire docs.'
Very well set up, perfect for a family holiday in the alps
Great from the start to the end, all Angie's communications were excellent; she answered questions promptly and all the instructions were perfect. The apartment is a good size with a nice big bathroom and double bedroom with a smaller bunk room and a bed in the hallway which joins the bedrooms and bathroom. We didn't use the sofa bed in the lounge as we were just a party of 5. The lounge and kitchen are great with everything you could possibly need including WIFi and UK TV. Great selection of DVDs too. We walked into Les Carroz along the separate footpath which takes about 10 mins, the town is nice with a few good bars and restaurants. For those who prefer to travel on a budget (like us) the Spar around the corner from the apartment is big and has everything you'll need to self cater. Driving to the main lift in the morning takes about 5 mins and with 500 spaces you should be fine as long as you arrive by 9 or 10am. Overall, a lovely, quiet, clean, well appointed apartment with owners who clearly want their guests to enjoy the experience of staying in their super property. We'd love to go again.
Thank you for your lovely words. We are just glad you had a fantastic holiday and hopefully we will be able to accommodate you again in the future.
Fantastic Summer Holiday
This is a great apartment for a holiday with everything you need inside. It is in a nice peaceful location but within easy walking distance to the lovely village of Les Carroz. Also within walking distance is a lovely outdoor pool and high rope activity and there is lots of other things to do for all the family. The gondola trip up the mountain in Les Carroz is also a must where you will find a number of hiking routes and a great café! The apartment is in a great location and within easy reach of Chamonix, Lake Geneva, Lake Annecy and all the beautiful mountain passes and villages. If you are into cycling (and hills), I would recommend taking or hiring a bike. We had great communication from the owner Angie, who passed on useful tips and advice on the local area before we travelled. A brilliant summer holiday which we would recommend to others.
Thank you so much for your lovely words. I just know how much we as a family love to stay there and hope that others like yourselves can get to experience all the fantastic things that the Alps in the summer have to offer.
