About the property

Sleeps 6 ,3 Bed apartment ideal for skiing and summer activities

A beautifully situated, mountain facing 3 bed room apartment. There are two balconies , one in the main en-suite bedroom, one that runs the length on the living room and diner. The apartment boasts two bathrooms, one en-suite and one family bathroom.

The 3 bedrooms have one double, one twin and one bunk room. The kitchen has all the mod cons and there is a washing machine cupboard. There are two sofas, TV/DVD and freeview. The apartment is furnished as our home so the furniture and decor is quality with a homely touch. The dining room table seats 6 and has a leaf. There is a basement storage room for skis. Bikes and outdoor equipment. There is ample off road parking.

The apartment is situated in the beautiful village of Thollon. The village runs good skiing ideal for young families and it is inexpensive with the family in mind.

The village runs a ski school and takes individual lessons and group sessions. The board park is popular with the locals and tourists. Thollon is an all year round retreat and is one of the most beautiful areas of Europe I have visited in the spring and summer. The walking and bike riding routes and paths are spectacular with superb views across Lake Geneva.

Some of the photos are on our website and photos are in the apartment. The area is packed with an abundance of activities for all ages. There is a bowling alley at the next village of Bernex , a mountain lake nearby which is a great lido in the summer. In the ski season, Thollon is ideally situated so that within one hour there are about 8 other ski resorts if you crave variety. Being near the easily accessible Swiss border means you can ski between countries.

The towns around Lake Geneva are beautiful in summer and winter with the Lake ferries making them all very accessible. At the bottom of the mountain from Thollon is the town of Evian made famous by the water. Natural Evian water flows through the taps in the apartment! Evian is a spa town with a lovely outlook to Switzerland across the lake. If you fancy a game of Tennis , Evian Tennis club is very friendly and boasts some lovely courts. About one hour into Switzerland is the Thermal Baths at Lavery. These are worth a visit any time of year and I guarantee you won't want to come home!

The village boasts all the amenities you need with two supermarkets, a bakers, fromagerie, newsagents, several bars and restaurants all of which I have tried and not been disappointed.

All in all, our lovely apartment in the quiet,beautiful and homely piece

of France is a wonderful way to relax - and in all the seasons!

About Mr John Ball

I have lived in Hertfordshire all my life but have worked in London for my career. Thollon is an escape and is so different from big main ski resorts meaning it builds it's own unique atmosphere you don't get anywhere else in the Alps.

Mr John Ball purchased this apartment in 2007

beau village mais assez déçus par l'appartement

  • 2 of 5

Arrivés sans aucune indication sur le lieu de notre location, nous avons été sous le charme du village mais pas de l'appartement: propreté douteuse, draps manquants, eau coupée sans aucune indication et un des 2 wc ne fonctionnant pas.. Nous avons voulu appeler le propriétaire : c'était un numéro hors de France et il ne parlait pas français! Il nous a annoncés que nous aurions à renvoyer la clé nous-mêmes par la poste!! Il nous a aussi prévenus qu'il y avait des échafaudages sans nous préciser que les ouvriers allaient commencer à 8h du matin sur le balcon où nous prenions notre petit-déjeuner!! Dernière horreur avant de partir : le sac dans l'aspirateur plein et...MOISI!! Je ne parle pas du fait qu'il n'y avait que des chaînes anglaises à la télé et pas de wifi dans l'appartement...
