|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Measuring an impressive 130mt2 the apartment was totally renovated during 2013. Furnished in a light airy style it is equipped with all the comforts of home, it provides ideal accommodation for two families and is right in the heart of the bustling town of Saint Jean d'Aulps. It is situated within a short walk of a variety of shops, restaurants, bakeries, and a butcher. Being only 100 meters from the free buses, running to the ski lifts of Morzine and Avoriaze, it is also ideal for those who wish to catch a transfer from the airport (which we are happy to arrange) and leave the car behind. For those who intend driving, the apartment has ample parking with two car parks one to either side of the building.The drive to Morzine and Avoriaze is between 10 and 15 minutes. It occupies the whole second floor (top floor) of our building offering spectacular views from every window and balcony.
Saint Jean d'Aulps “La Grande Terche” forms part of the Portes Du Soleil and is an excellent resort particularly well suited to beginners and families with its wide nursery slope. The ski school is situated directly at the telecabin. The resort is something of a well-kept secret that has played host to the French national ski championships. It has 34km of varied slopes with 16 lifts that offer fun for all levels of skier and boarder alike.
Entrance to the apartment is from the main high street. The entrance hall has a ski storage cupboard avoiding the need to take any skis, poles boards etc up to the apartment itself.
The front door to the apartment opens into a porch area off which is the WC, a double bedroom with a westerly facing balcony and entrance to the living area.
The large open plan living and dining area offers comfort for 8 people, a dining table, a wall mounted smart TV connected to the internet with satellite television, a sound dock and Wifi.
Turn right to gain access to the large modern kitchen equipped with all you would need including inductive hob, fan oven, steam / microwave oven, fridge freezer, dish washer, washing machine and tumble drier. The kitchen has east and west facing views with a four seat breakfast table looking over the town.
Three further bedrooms and two further bathrooms are accessed from the hallway running off the living area. The master bedroom is a double with ensuite. There is also a twin room and bunk room plus family bathroom from the hallway.
In total the apartment has 4 sets of French doors leading out to large balconies, which are ideal for catching the sun all day long with spectacular sunsets in the summer. The west facing balcony has a Weber barbeque for outdoor cooking.
Susan and Jon live and work in south Lincolnshire. We have two children Oliver and Alice and have enjoyed many fantastic years holidaying in the Portes du Soleil area. We were introduced to Saint Jean d’Aulps by our friends, and frequent hosts, who had a chalet there.
Following an extended period of looking for a suitable place we came across our apartment in 2013, bought and renovated it completely. We now enjoy the same holidays with our children, Oli and Alice, and our friends have a little more space!
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2013
As we were looking for an apartment rather than a Chalet we came to realise that this would usually mean that we may have to settle for less space. Then le Grenier came onto the market offering the space we were looking for and more. Measuring 130m2 it is quite a size, on top of that most of the floor space is given up to the living areas making it very comfortable for eight people.
The apartment is on the second floor of our building with large balconies to the West and East sides. We are located in the heart of the village. Within a short walk you have a Carrefour express, two bakeries, cafés, Bars, Restaurants, a superb Butcher and free buses to Avoriaz and Morzine ski lifts(Morzine lifts are only 10 minutes by car and Avoriaz lifts 20 minutes).
In Summer there is also a great deal close by.

As a family of four we spent a very comfortable week in this property. The property is as described very well equipped - clean - comfortable - warm and the owner was very helpful and responded promptly to any questions we had. The village is well served (restaurants, bar that does good pizza, supermarket and baker) and for our plans (skiing in Avoriaz) the situation worked well as the ardent lift into Avoriaz is only about a 10 minute drive away and parking is easy. You could also easily ski in Morzine or Les Gets also and of course the grand terche is just up the road but alas we did not have time to do that this time.
I would recommend the property to friends and would certainly stay again. We had shopping delivered by totalchaletservices - a handy local company - which was there ready for us on our arrival.
We had a fantastic ski trip here. The apartment can comfortably sleep 8 and the facilities are excellent. There is access to 3 ski areas (Portes de Soleil 10 min, St Jean D'Aulps 5 min & Flaine 40 min). There are also a nice couple of bars in the village for some Apres Ski! Highly Recommend!!
Beautiful appartment. Everything functions. A few days however we had some problems with the warm water which was not there. A day later it was there again. No problem.
What did we miss: A tea pot. That's all. And good weather ofcours but that has got nothing to do with the appartment. Never seen so much snow and fog. It was almost impossible to ski. Only saw the sun for one hour.
Maybe this apprtment is okay for summer holidays too if you like competitive cycling like me. Lots of cols in the nabourhood.
Magnifique appartement, déco, spacieux et très bien équipé, à 2 pas d'une navette emmenant sur les pistes de cette station familiale et sympathique.
Je recommande vivment !!!
Wij,een gezelschap van 5 personen, hebben hier anderhalve week genoten van een heerlijk en ruim appartement. Op internet tevoren de foto's bekeken, dat zag er goed uit, maar bij binnenkomst werden we aangenaam getroffen: de werkelijkheid was nog mooier. Het huis is met veel zorg ingericht met gebruikmaking van eersteklas materialen. De totale inrichting is uitmuntend geoutilleerd. De ligging is centraal in het dorp aan de hoofdweg, alles is binnen handbereik. Uiteraard is het minder stil dan ergens op een bergweggetje, maar de ramen en luiken geven een goede isolatie. De aangeleverde documentatie en de snelle reacties van de eigenaar kunnen niet beter. Kortom: een waardering met 5 sterren is zeker verdiend.
Die Wohnung ist gemütlich eingerichtet, Küche gut ausgestattet. Leider liegt die Wohnung an der Hauptstraße und gegenüber ist die Kirche und die Glocken läuten zu jeder Stunde (auch Nachts). Doppelbetten sind etwas schmal und es gibt nur eine Decke dafür. Außerdem fehlt ein Raum, indem man die Skischuhe trocknen kann.
