About the property

4 bedroom apartment with en suite bathrooms. Sleeps up to 10 people.

Apartment Rufus is a large chalet style ground floor apartment just a minute’s walk from the telecabine at St Jean d’Aulps ski area, la Grande Terche. It is even possible to ski back to the apartment when snow conditions allow. St Jean is an excellent resort for beginners & families, with a large nursery slope area and ski school at the top of the telecabine. To reach the rest of the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, access to Avoriaz via the Ardent telecabine is only a 15 minute drive and Morzine is a 10 minute drive.

The apartment was completely renovated in 2012. It is light and spacious and provides an ideal holiday rental for two families sharing.

The large living/dining area has a light and airy feel enhanced by the large French windows overlooking the garden at the front of the property. Light floods in with the beautiful mountain views.

There are several comfy sofas arranged around the log burner, the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a busy day skiing. There is also a dining table with cushioned chairs for 10 people. The large fully-equipped kitchen is just down the hallway from the dining area. It has everything you’d expect to find, plus a Nespresso coffee machine.

There is a TV with English and French channels and there is, of course, Wifi. To keep kids entertained some toys and games are supplied.

All bedrooms are ensuite with either baths & showers or showers only. They are all well equipped with heated towel rails and the bedrooms all have ample storage and hanging space.

The master double bedroom leads off the living room and has French windows leading out onto a private balcony at the rear of the building. There are three further bedrooms along the hallway past the kitchen. The second bedroom can be either made up as a double or a twin bedroom. The third bedroom is ideal for children sharing as it has 2 sets of bunkbeds, and the fourth bedroom has two single beds.

At the front porch entrance, you’ll find racks for storing your skis and a boot rack just inside the front door. There is also laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer. There is parking for one car in the parking bay adjacent to the garden and additional spaces in the communal car park opposite.

Outside the apartment, there is a large sun terrace and beautiful garden. It is ideal for outdoor dining in the summer months and perfect for kids to play in and build snowmen in the winter months, while adults admire the views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nous avons énormément apprécié ce chalet pour des vacances entre amis dans une station de ski chaleureuse et agréable.

Confortable et à la décoration soignée nous avons adoré le poêle et le bois à disposition pour une ambiance montagne en toute modernité. Il ne manque rien dans ce chalet (sauf peut être une rallonge électrique pour la raclette !) pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis à moins d'une minute des remontées mécaniques.

Un accueil en toute simplicité par la propriétaire et en toute confiance que nous a également ravis.

A True Gem

  • 5 of 5

Saint Jean D'Aulps / La Grand Terche is the hidden gem in the Les Portes du Soleil ski area. Some might find that not being connected into the wider Avoriaz / Morzine / Les Gets ski lift system a disadvantage however I can assure you it isn't. The ski station has a charming, rustic feel to it and has everything you need within 2 mins walk from each other including ski hire and ski school.

As a snowboarder of 20 years travelling with 3 kids and a wife all at beginner stage and then another family with 3 people looking to learn Chalet Rufus is perfectly situated only a very short walk from all the amenities.

The chalet itself is fantastic to the point we are booking to go later in the season. Ample space for two families with a bunk bed room for the kids. All the bedrooms are good size doubles with ensuite, huge kitchen and separate dining and living area, the finish to the chalet is A1. There are toys for the kids including a Wi and great Wifi connection.

Even if you are a seasoned skier / boarder you are only a 10/15 min drive from the Ardent bubble into Avoriaz & Morzine network. The local bus also provides a connection for those not driving so your covered in terms of being able to get into the larger ski areas. Even as a seasoned boarder there are some great runs to be had with the added bonus the pistes are significantly quieter so yep you can get fresh off piste powder runs all day. I can honestly say I've had some of the best runs ever here. It's not big, exposed mountain skiing, more intimate, tree lined shorter runs. But hey still great.

For those learning it's a no brainer as the ski school and hire are right on your doorstep. Especially for those learning it is a lot more affordable as you're not paying for a ski pass that covers a huge mountain area that you'll never get to see. The ESF school has English and French speakers and the Piou Piou for younger children is perfect.

As I've said we love the area and are booking the chalet again so we can only recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review of the Rufus Apartment. I completely agree with you about la Grande Terche being a hidden gem. There have been quite a few days in the season when I've skied up there and not seen another sole; at some points on the Roc d'Enfer circuit you really feel like you are in the wilderness! Look forward to welcoming you back soon!

The Rufus Apartment is in an excellent location, a minutes walk from the telecabine at la Grande Terche, the ski resort of St Jean d'Aulps. You can actually ski back to the door of the apartment, snow conditions dependant. It is also only a 10 minute drive into the centre of Morzine, for those wanting more extensive skiing.
