“Perfect for a quiet escape to the Mountains”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a wonderful week in the chalet, clean, modern with a traditional feel, and such helpful owners who allowed us to store our bikes in their secure garage which is integral to the property. They were even kind enough to allow us use of their hosepipe and old towels to dry the bikes with. Top service!

All the basics were provided in the kitchen and an extra helpful breakfast selection with a bottle of milk on arrival. Fantastic touch.

The property itself is approximately 10 mins walk to a local shop which had plentiful supplies and fresh bread. There is also a larger shop in Les Gets village about 30 mins walk or free local bus in season.

We look forward to visiting Croc Blanc again in the future and would recommend it to anyone happy to be far enough away from the town yet close enough to have a relaxing walk or cycle.

“Perfect holiday apartment”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is a great holiday apartment within walking distance of Les Gets. If you don't fancy walking there is a bus stop right outside. The apartment had everything we required, including a thoughtful welcome pack on arrival. Ron and Mel were a lovely couple and were very helpful. We would definitely recommend this apartment for summer or winter.

“Memorable stay - clean and friendly - picturesque location”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in August 2015

We went last summer (retired couple and teenage daughter). Read reviews but reality surpassed all our hopes. Didn't dare drive so flew in to Geneva and got taxi to Croc Blanc - straightforward little journey. Loved the fact the bus stop was just a few yards away - partially disabled - and free bus. Took advantage of reduced price tourist ticket and used it on cable car up to Avoriaz, little train round Les Gets, "bubble"2-seater ski lift up to the top of mountain for lunch etc. More than enough to do even in the summer - didn't feel out of place not being able to do much - very much something for everyone from mountain biking to just admiring the views.
The chalet was beautiful and more than big enough for us all - everything you'd need for a self-catering holiday. Clean, tidy - new kitchen and shower room/loo - and private outdoor patio. Just the job!
Had welcome pack for first morning breakfast - lasted for days - and Mel actually got in touch the day before our arrival, to ask if we needed anything specific getting in beforehand when she went shopping. So friendly - unbelievable! !
It was a real plus having them on the other floor. Nothing was too much trouble - like having your own personal tourist board next door - but we had complete privacy at the same time. Just what we needed actually - and were amazed at how friendly, kind and genuinely helpful they were!! Needless to say we've booked for another week this summer and can't wait to go back again. Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Savoyard chalet - wifi - welcome pack inc wine and beers - next door to free bus - with genuine hosts who just genuinely love it there. And so cheap!!

Lovely welcome from our hosts Mel and Ron. Well equipped apartment which was conveniently situated within a short walk of the bus stop. We were very impressed with Les Gets too, which has everything you need for a great holiday!

“Lovely Apartment and a great holiday, we where made so welcome.”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Ron and Mel made us very welcome, the apartment was great and felt very homely. On arrival we had milk / tea/ coffee and even a couple of beers and wine in the fridge. The free Wi Fi was first rate.
Even a couple of dull weather days did not spoil our cycling holiday.
Communications at all stages, booking, travel questions etc was first class.

I can thoroughly recommend Croc Blanc to anyone wishing to stay in Les Gets.
Many thanks Ron and Mel.

“Excellent and highly recommended”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Along with the benefits of Les Gets as a resort, Ron and Melanie make sure that this is a lovely place to stay and it clearly matters to them that you have a great experience. The apartment is both finished and maintained to a very high standard and we had a lovely week there. The close proximity of the free ski bus stop and a short walk to the local supermarket (fresh croissants for breakfast, etc) make the location surprisingly convenient, whilst it is also very relaxing and quiet. There are numerous options in the village for eating out and a quirky but excellent traditional restaurant nearby. I suspect that we will be looking to book again, maybe for a summer trip next time.

“Fantastic little apartment!”
Reviewed 21 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Brilliant little apartment, even nicer than the photos suggest. Lovely and clean, plenty of space for us (2 adults and 1 child). Excellent touch to have a welcome pack of cereal, milk etc - really helps, especially as we had a late arrival. Melanie and Ron made the stay easy, with lots of useful tips, but also going the extra mile to source us a travel cot and high chair for the baby, and recommending a local childminder. The bus into town is easy peasy, and no problem to walk in and out in evenings or if not carrying skis etc.
