Appartement confortable dans un site magnifique

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans l'appartement confortable, tellement cosy, de Huw et Vanessa. La vue depuis le balcon est magnifique et la nature environnante superbe !

Huw et Vanessa ont été très à l'écoute de nos demandes, et très disponibles. Nous les en remercions.

Notre seul regret: l'absence de commerces à proximité de l'appartement. La voiture nous a été nécessaire.

Summer Walking in the Alps

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Huw and Vanessa for providing the cosy base to our dream holiday this year! For a pair of keen Snowdonian walkers we were in heaven here in the La Clusaz apartment - sitting on the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine, surveying the landscape for our next hike with so many beautiful mountains to choose from. You can buy a map of the area's walks from La Clusaz tourist information for 5 euros. It is in French, but directs you to some stunning circular walks from just a couple of miles to more challenging day climbs. We chose to walk locally from the apartment, or within a short drive, but for the more ambitious climbers, Chamonix is only an hour's drive away for the Mont Blanc range. La Clusaz is also a fantastic location for keen mountain bikers and road cyclists, very excited (watching the tv coverage when we got home) to see the Tour de France 2013 go right past the apartment. Thanks again to Huw and Vanessa - only downside to our holiday is that Snowdonia doesn't look so stunning anymore!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, my 16 year old daughter and 20 year old God-daughter stayed here from 26th Dec 2010 to 1st Jan 2011. The studio was warm and cosy and it was great to wake up to the stunning views every morning. I'm not the greatest or most confident skier in the world but found easy runs to keep me occupied while the others ventured further afield. I didn't ski every day and enjoyed getting the bus in to La Clusaz and wandering around the shops. We found the studio ideal for the 4 of us and it had everything we needed for cooking the evening meal, after which we sat down to enjoy one of the many dvd's left for our use. We did find we needed snow chains and once we figured out how to fit them this was not a problem. We rented one of the heated lockers in the ski hire shop which meant we didn't need to carry our skis up and down each day. La Croix-Fry itself is very quite and this suited us - we were all tucked up in bed at 10.30pm on New Years Eve!! All in all we had a fantastic week - so much so we have already booked up for this year and will once again be bringing in the New Year in France - maybe this time we will manage to stay awake!!!

Un super bon plan !

  • 5 of 5

Au coeur de la montagne dans un endroit tranquille, le lieu est parfait pour des vacances dépaysantes. Relié au merveilleux domaine skiable de La Clusaz, le col de la Croix-Fry bénéficie d'un emplacement exceptionnel que l'on apprécie du balcon du studio. Vue sur les Aravis enneigées et ensoleillées, quoi de mieux pour bien débuter une journée ? Le studio bien aménagé par Vanessa et Huw est un cocon que l'on retrouve avec grand plaisir aprés le ski. On peut même commencer 20 mn avant l'ouverture du domaine en descendant vers le massif de l'Etale ou vers le bas de La Clusaz. Vraiment, chez Vanessa et Huw on se sent bien, je garde bien précieusement leurs coordonnées pour de prochaines vacances à la montagne. Bravo les Anglais!

Cordialement Laurent

Cosy apartment in lovely setting.

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say how charming and cosy this apartment is. After a hard days skiing, either on your door step in Croix Fry or 4 miles down the road in La Clusaz, it was great to return to the apartment and chill out! The kids played with the numerous games available or we all watched a dvd, a great selection.

We decided to drive to France for the first time. A long journey on the way out 12 hours from Calais (it was half term week though), but only 8 hours back to Calais. Snow chains are a must, its a steep winding drive up off the main road. There is a Carrefour supermarket a few miles down the valley in Thones, where you can stock up on your essentials. The lift passes are very reasonable in Croix Fry. La Clusaz is a wonderful village, lovely shops and several other activities to do such as the swimming pool, where you can swim outside.

The apartment is in a great position. I advise to get there during daylight, it would be difficult to find in the dark. Although the apartment is small, it is more than adequate for a family or 4, mum, dad and 2 kids (12 & 9).

We hope to use it again and fancy a break in the summer as the scenery is wonderful.

Thanks again Huw & Vanessa

Terrific apartment in a spectacular ski region

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank both Huw and Vanessa for letting my family use their fantastic appartment.

I go skiing each year with my wife and 2 young children (aged 5 and 8) and normally we stay in Morzine or Tignes. As my youngest was now old enough to learn to ski I though that we would try somewhere different.

I am so pleased that we did. The entire area is charming and from the appartments balcony, which is a great little suntrap the views are stunning. The skiing itself is great and suits standards of every level and I was confident in teaching the youngest. After an exhausting day the appartment was a welcome sight for sore legs. The wife and I could relax whilst the children were able to watch DVD's, listen to music or pick up a book and read.

Will definately be going back, thank you.

Situated in Le Col de la Croix-Fry (between La Clusaz / Manigod) you are able to ski directly to the lifts, giving the benifit of linking up-to all the surounding ski areas. Equipment hire & ski school are available right on your doorstep, so whether a novice, intermediate or advanced skier, or even if you just want to enjoy the breath-taking scenery and lunch in one of the many cosy mountain restaurants, this beautiful area caters for all.

In Croix-Fry there are three restaurants a few minutes walk from the chalet, with sunny terraces where you can reflect on your perfect days skiing, and, for your lively apre ski La Clusaz is just 5 minutes by car. Megeve, Morzine & Chamonix are all within one hours drive.

During the summer, enjoy mountain biking, walking etc, plus just 30 minutes away the very beautiful Lake Annecy, for water sports or great shopping!
