Loved the place and will definitely return. Spectacular views. Would be a great place to stay Winter or Summer. We were unlucky as the snow has been poor so far this Winter but the sun shone every day which made up for the lack of snow.

It was very peaceful when we visited in August 2016 and every day you had fabulous views of the mountain peaks. The apartment itself was very well equipped including a selection of DVDs, board games and the Wii which the children loved! Whilst the kitchen was small it was perfect for holiday catering and there was a plentiful supply of crockery and cutlery. There's a large comfy sofa with views onto the balcony and two of the three bedrooms were very spacious with plenty of drawer space. Having a second bathroom/shower was very handy too. Within 20 minutes drive there are a variety of summer activities and we enjoyed using the cable car/lift system to explore the area with plenty of walking routes available from the Tourist Information office or in the basket of information that Tony left in the apartment. You can easily pop over to Switzerland (we did it on foot using the lifts but it would also be an easy drive by car). Morzine and Les Gets are nice resorts with plenty of activities including swimming, high ropes and horse riding. There's lots of mountain biking opportunities although we didn't do this ourselves. We visited the goat village at Les Lindarets, Lac Montrimond, (the fabulous local lake where you can paddle board, canoe or swim), Avoriaz (where there's a great outdoor play area with a wide variety of free games for children of all ages to play e.g. chess, badminton, table tennis), the local Gorge and the medieval town, Yvoire, on the shores of Lake Geneva. There were places we just didn't get chance to visit so will certainly return to this area in the future. Overall we had the most wonderful holiday and would thoroughly recommend both this apartment and the area. Tony was extremely helpful in the run up to our trip, answering questions and whilst we were there the local contact Sarah was really prompt in helping us too. Thank you both! We hired a car at Geneva airport (the French side) and although we got slightly lost coming out of the airport when we arrived in Geneva, and then on the way back as they'd closed off some of the roads in the city that our sat nav wanted to take us down, overall it was a very easy journey from the airport to the apartment following the lake side road. You definitely need the freedom of having a car to make the most of a trip to the Portes du Soleil area.
