“Great Apartment Complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2008

We stayed Feb 08 in an apartment for 5 chalet D for a week. It had snowed loads and we used the underground car park at cost of 60 euros and we fit in even with a roof box on. The car park led directly into chalet block. 2 bedrooms were comfortable and had lots of space for luggage. Spa complex was great, treatments too expensive. Kitchen area small but had all you need - we self catered all week no probs, had a combi-oven that did loads plus fridge, hob etc. Extractors didn't work though! Quiet and comfortable - though sofa not good for spending much time! We had 2 kids aged 11 and 7 and managed to dry stuff easily on heated rails.

  • Liked — Lots on offer
  • Disliked — Wires exposed in apartment and extractors faulty
  • Stayed February 2008, travelled with family

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2008

We stayed at Les Fermes du Soleil over New year 07/08 . Les Carroz is a lovely French skiing resort, with a lively buzz about it, plenty of little bars and restaurants, great ski shops, plenty of ski equipment hire shops, and a couple of wonderful cheese/ mountain meats shops.
The reception area was welcoming, as were the staff. Nice indoor pool and hot-tubs, great for end of day swimming /relaxing with children. There are 5 CHALET appartment blocks - recommend if you are in Chalet E you avoid the ground floor as it looks directly onto the ice rink and accross to the Spar supermarket . Ice rink closed early (7pm) and was not particularly noisy, but did play music and was fairly busy so may annoy if you can't escape it.
The appartment we had supposedly slept 5/6 people - DO NOT BE FOOLED !! It was TINY . We were a party of 4 with 2 children under 10, and it was fine for us, but there was no room to manouevre and if there had been more of us it would have been a nightmare. Our double bedroom was fine, simply but cosily furnished, with a closet size walk in shower/ basin ensuite. 1 separate toilet for the appartment. The 2nd room with 2 small size single beds was very small, to the extent that one of the single beds blocked 2/3 of the doorway. There was no window ( except an internal one onto the corridor and lift(with shutters over)- not sure what the point of that was. There was no storage space in this room except for a small head-height cupboard. No drawers or wardrobe. Not suitable for adults, or possibly teenagers.
Kitchen/dining lounge area all in one, very small . Microwave combi oven and hob but no proper oven.Nice wooden chalet style furniture, but an incredibly uncomfortable sofa , which doubled as a 1/2 size single pull-out bed, which thankfully we didn't need. Choice to sit was the hard wooden dining chairs or rock hard upright sofa, so don't pick these appartments if you plan to spend a lot of time relaxing in them! Nice family feel to Les Fermes du Soleil, and would go back but think their description of 4* is pushing it a little based on appartment size. Think the photos on their website must be for 8 + people and with very wide angled lens.
Snow was good, as was the skiing, with a good number of runs. Excellent for intermediates.recommend you pay the extra and get the ski lift pass covering the Grand massif area rather than just the local area,so you can go up to Flaine ( hideously characterless but good runs ) and across to Samoens . Free Ski buses, but busy, and you can wait up to 20 minutes. If you are skiing in the morning it's worth driving up instead and parking in the free car park by the telecabine.

  • Liked — friendliness and efficiency of staff . Nice resort
  • Disliked — Tiny appartment. Hideously uncomfortable sofa !
