This was our fourth visit to La Croix Fry and our second stay in this wonderful apartmentand (and hopefully not our last!!!)

In an ideal location and the views from the balcony are stunning. There are no supermarkets in the resort but a short drive to either Merdassier or down the La Clusaz meant it was easy to stock up on essentials. We also ordered fresh from Les Sapins hotel which we picked up each morning.

As always, we hired our skis form Veyrat Sports and stored them in the heated locker which we rented from them. This avoided us having to carry them up and down the hill each day.

We had two fantastic full days of skiing but towards the end of our stay rain stopped play. We used one of our non skiing days to visit Annecy which was lovely, even in the rain!!

We did not get to try the night skiing as it was raining on the Friday night and we had dinner booked at Les Sapins on the Saturday night. Never mind it just means we will have to go back again next year 😉.

Thanks again Ali for allowing is to stay in your beautiful apartment and all your help during our stay.

All you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The apartment is really comfortable, extremely well kitted out...all the cooking gadgets you could wish for, Ålong with satellite TV! Owners are extremely helpful and friendly. This year they started night skiing at Croix fry/Manigod, which was brilliant fun, and then into the Fon fon afterwards for some of the best steaks going. You really won't be disappointed if you book this apartment.

La Maison du Bois

  • 5 of 5

Great little apartment just perfect for our family of 4. Fab views of the flood lit slopes for night skiing. 2 minute walk to the nearest slope or lift and great access to all the nearby ski areas via blue or green runs. Good ski rental close by if required. Car needed for access to supermarkets and restaurants but a good choice of places to go.Reliable and good speed wifi so teenagers were happy!

Very helpful owners who were contactable and sorted out minor glitches very quickly (how to work the DVD!).

Cosy, welcoming apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

After a very enjoyable road trip from England, we arrived at the our chosen accommodation, and were not disappointed with what greeted us when we opened the door.

A cosy, clean and welcoming apartment, with everything we could have wished for and more.....

We found the description of the apartment to be very accurate and embraced everything that it had to offer, especially the stunning views..............

We had such a lovely holiday, that we were all very sad to leave................roll on next year!!!
