Why Gill Willis chose Portes du Soleil

The minute we found Les Crosets we fell in love with it. Les Crosets is your quintessential traditional Swiss Alpine village and will not disappoint any visitor.

We bought the apartment off plan in 2007 because it was by far the highest specification of any ski property we had seen in our extensive search of France and Switzerland.

The view from the living room is breathtaking and unrivaled in the Hameau.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has 65 square meters of balcony spanning three sides of the property. It attracts the sun throughout the day including evening sun on the front balcony. The view of the Dents du Midi is spectacular - the colours on the mountains when the sun sets are a site to behold.

The apartment is very spacious with three generous double bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Because it is new build it is very warm with underfloor heating throughout and well insulated.

wonderful half term break in Les Crosets

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic half term break in this beautiful apartment and have already booked for next year. the apartment was spacious (we were 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 kids), very stylish and very well located. Les Crosets is one of my favourite ski areas with lots of great skiing and we noticed the slopes were about 50% less busy than those in France. All in all a great holiday.

Our annual ski trip to Les Crosets 2015 in January

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Saturday with snow falling so gave us good conditions to ski and enabled us to ski out of the apartment block and ski home. The apartment was very clean, warm and cozy and extremely well equiped . The bedrooms had lots of storage and comfortable mattresses! The english tv was a godsend with the children! Conveniently located to the small supermarket. We would highly recommend this apartment on all levels!

Magnificent in every way. We have stayed here 3 times during ski season and again in the summer. We have always driven from the UK, there is secure underground parking suitable for a large car with top box. The apartment is spacious, modern, airy and clean with all the facilities you would need. Clear and breathtaking views of the mountains in the heart of this beautiful swiss alpin village.The sunlight pours in all day and it has a huge 270 degree balcony ¾ round building. It really is ski in/ski out. Cannot rate this more highly. Totally relaxing and a beautiful home.

Skiing - superb access to huge ski region suitable for complete beginners to excellent level with the famous’ Swiss Wall’ a short ski away. Very child friendly resort with excellent ski school, but also a very peaceful and intimate atmosphere for adults. In the summer enjoy the beautiful scenery, lovely walks or mountain biking over the valley (all within reach with the lifts). It's a fantastic purpose built mountain bike park plus there's a high wire experience crossing the valley.

Some lovely restaurants, shops, hotels and bars literally all within 100 metres .

Relaxing home from home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well appointed apartment with unrivalled views of the Dents du Midi with easy access to the slopes and the facilities in Les Crosets.

This place ticks all the boxes.

The open-plan living space is ideal for families and friends, and the whole place has a relaxed, homely feel about it.

The secure underground parking with remote control door was useful as it saved spending time clearing snow before you could use the car.

An unexpected touch was the Bose iPhone speaker dock, although it did spark a couple of 'iTunes wars' - disputes about which playlist and iPhone should be occupying it!

Definitely would stay here again and the lasting memory is sipping schnapps on the balcony looking at THAT view.

I have stayed in this apartment in summer and winter. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped with a panorama of wonderful views over the mountains and valleys.

In winter Les Crosets is an excellent skiing resort.

In summer there are fantastic walks. The air is fresh and clean. However there is access to facilities and events around Lake Geneva. On the last visit we visited the Montreux Jazz festival which was great. Another day we swam in an open air pool - it was a very warm day.

Les Crosets is quiet and peaceful in the summer - cow bells ringing from the beautiful meadows are so Alpine. There are a few good restaurants and shopping facilities. However for a wider range there is additional choice in towns and villages down the valley.

The apartment is clean and well maintained. I would have no hesitation recommending it to friends and family.

Fantastic location and accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice, once for a mountain walking trip in the Summer and once for a Ski holiday in the Winter. Both visits were fantastic, it has everything from skiing 'on your doorstep' to fine dining in the evening - with fabulous views.....a fantastic location with easy access to ski-lifts. Highly recommended.
