“Nice and Charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

It was a great time. the residence is adequate and coherent with description. Strenghth points: location, tidiness,dimension of the flat and view- Weak Points: a bit old, ski room needs refurbishment and ski boot warehouse is not existing in a warm place. No bench available in skiroom so you need definitvelly to put them on in your place. A bit more assistance day1 in finding some place to eat would have been welcome (restaurants were fully booked so a bit of warning or more proactive assistance would have been welcome)

The overall experience at the Saskia apartments was very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room (sleeps 4-5) was good and there was two sofa beds and a double bedroom at the side. The apartment was a good size for us as there were only three of us although there was no storage in the double bedroom apart from a bedside table and some coat hooks but, within the apartment there were two generous sized storage cupboards for suitcases etc. The only room that really let the apartment down was the bathroom - it was fully functional and hot water was of abundance but the suite itself is in need of modernising. The views from the balcony were excellent and ski/snowboard storage was adequate and easily accessible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor (we were on the eighth floor) as the views are fantastic.

I think we must of paid over the top for this one bedroomed apartment as it was very poor value for money. However I normally look at the bright side and it did do what it was meant to. However the room was very small (tiny) and the staff did not really seem to care. Went to retire on the first night and then realised that we had no sheets for the beds or towels. These appeared the next day, They had forgot them. A few other issues and then when checking out they refused to look after our bags for the day as it was "a Monday". Not sure what difference this should make but a really odd decision on their part. If you can get this cheap then go for it but don't expect any luxuries.

For me there are two things which make a stay at Saskia Falaise P&V valuable: the great location (wonderful view from the balcony and you can ski directly from the ski room onto the slopes and the elevators) and the friendly and helpful staff.

Although this, it has to be said that the apartment for 4 people that we stayed in was on the small size, even for 3. The living room is acceptible, but the beds are small and you don't have any space to change clothes, to walk around in the apartment,...

Another negative point is that the breakfast service was not yet available when we stayed there (during the first days of the skiing season).

Overall, you get a clean but small apartment and when you want to book this, please choose an appartment for more people than you actually go.

Although we have skiied the Portes du Soleil area before we hadn't actually stayed in Avoriaz but due to a late holiday felt it necessary to stay at a higher altitude. We travelled as a family of 3 - myself husband & 17 yr old daughter.
We flew to Geneva and had arranged a transfer with MorzExpress. Although they only drop off at the Prodain Lift they were on time & very efficient on both arrival & return.
Taking the Prodain lift was ok although obvioulsy this means carrying your own bags and then finding your apartment once you step out into Avoriaz! Arriving in the snow & after a few uncertain minutes we arranged for one of the horse drawn sledges(14 euros approx.- 3 people & 3 bags) to take us to Le Douchka only to find out that due to it being late season we had been moved to the Saskia which was about 300m away. Bit of a nuisance to then have to drag bags across there & no assistance provided by the staff at the Saskia (unknown to us at the time there are carts available which just require a 1 euro coin).
The apartment took us a bit by surprise, compact to say the least but once we had unpacked there was just about enough space and it was clean. I do think it would be a struggle with more than 3 people in the apartment.
My daughter who is very petite slept on one of the sofa beds & we had a double bed in a room separated from the living room by a bi-folding door. Bed was only accessible on 2 sides & no other furniture. Beds were clean & comfortable with warm duvets.
Living room - 2 Sofas with storage below (one which was used as bed by my daughter & therefore covered with her duvet so not really available to sit on). TV - french, german channels & CNN). Dining table. coffee table & the wardrobe - inadequate hangers but extra were available from reception. Bathroom - small but efficient, plenty of hot water & a heated towel rail, always useful to dry off ski gear at the end of the day. Kitchen - clean but limited. 4 hot plates, combi microwave (but no instruction book),coffee machine, decent fridge with small freezer compartment & dishwasher (hooray!) Plenty of dishes,glasses & cutlery. Kettle available from reception. Heating - self regulated & very efficient. Ski locker - in Saskia building opened & locked using apartment key. Location - fantastic views, top end of Avoriaz, in the area they call Falaise - for us it was absolutely perfect - easy access to slopes / lifts. Ski hire - shop is convenient being adjacent to Saskia reception, no issues.Town - couple of supermarkets, the usual beautiful bakeries & quite few restaurants, bars & ski hire shops. Apres ski - quiet but this may have been the fact that it was the end of the season. Overall a great holiday, great skiing and would definitely return to Avoriaz.

6 of us, males in our mid 20's stayed here for a week in January for a snowboarding holiday. We had a self-catered 6 person apartment with double bedroom, bunk beds in another separate bedroom, and sofa beds in the lounge/kitchen. There was a toilet room with sink and separate bathroom with shower over bath and sink.
The kitchenette had an electric hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave grill, kettle, and to our surprise...a dishwasher!
It was pretty well equipped and had everything we needed to feed ourselves for the week.
The lounge was comfortable and provided a good place to chill out with a few beers and a game of cards after a day on the mountain. We also had a balcony with a table and 2 chairs with an amazing view of the landscape.

Each room has 2 lockers for ski equipment in the ground floor storage room which are locked using the apartment door key, very handy.
The local supermarket is literally a 1 minute walk away, a good pizza restaurant is 2 mins away (takeaway available after 7pm!), and a couple of decent bars are 3-5mins away.

It's pretty much ski in/out as well. There's a short, gentle green about 30m round the corner from the entrance to the hotel which takes you straight to a lift, perfect for warming up on first thing. As for skiing in, we usually finished up on the snow park at the end of the day which was about a 5 minute walk away. Can't really ask for much more!

Room Tip: We were room 406 which was on the back of the hotel with an amazing view of the mountains.

4 guys on a long weekend ski trip, this is exactly what you need. Cheap, functional and good location in the Falaise area of Avoriaz - Just about ski in/ ski out. We went for the 1bed / 1 bunk room 7 man option for the 4 of us and you definitley need this so as to feel like you're not on top of each other.

Friendly staff at reception and for 30 Euros we gotr to keep the apartment for the whole day when checking out, meaning we got a full days skiing on our last day beforebeing able to come back to the apartment and have a shower and get changed before heading to airport.

All in all great option for a group or family loking to do a ski holiday on the cheap.
