Morzine, Portes du Soleil, Haute-Savoie, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
Our apartment is located in La Grande Terche, St. Jean d'Aulps in the beautiful Portes du Soleil region. In a peaceful location yet just minutes walk from the gondola & local village this is a perfect base for both skiing and summer holidays.

With wood floors throughout the living area, pine-clad double height ceilings and private balcony with uninterrupted mountain views this apartment is wonderfully light and airy by day and warm and cosy at night.

The apartment sleeps four comfortably (unlike many similar size apartments which cram in six or even eight berths). The accommodation comprises living room with king size sofa bed, open plan dining room & fully equipped kitchen, double bedroom, modern bathroom with powerful shower, separate WC, ski locker and parking space.

This is a much loved holiday home not just a rental p...

We stayed in this apartment for a few days around a bank holiday weekend. With such easy access from Geneva airport (1.5hrs by car), we were further rewarded with incredible views of the valley and surround mountains. The apartment had plenty of space (incl enough for a bike and box too) and we felt extremely comfortable there. There is plenty...

Great little apartment, perfect for a couple, all the facilities that you need. Can ski in/out of St Jean D'ulps in good snow, which we had pretty much all week. Also only a short drive to Morzine and Les Gets which are also lovely. Good supermarket close by. Would definitely stay again, so much better than any ski package apartment

About the neighbourhood
The Grande Terche where our apartment is located is the ski resort for the local village of St. Jean d’Aulps. It is a small friendly village in its own right with three restaurants, one pub, a grocery shop, a ski hire shop, a laundrette and a ski school with crèche all within minutes walk of the apartment.

A short drive (or walk in the summer) down the hill St. Jean D’Aulps offers all the local shops that you would expect (butcher, baker, delicatessen, patisserie, tabac, pharmacy, post office, laundrette etc.) as well as a good sized Champion supermarket, a pub and more restaurants. The pretty village has also has several attractive churches, a town hall and the ruins of a 12th Century Abbey.

In terms of ski access the Grande Terche gondola is minutes walk from the apartment. This tak...

By air:
St Jean D’Aulps is just over an hour’s scenic drive from Geneva Airport or approximately two hour’s drive from Lyon (full driving directions and tips will be supplied). Both airports are accessible from most UK regional airports, and excellent value flights are often available from the likes of Easyjet, Jet2, BMI Baby, Flybe and KLM, as well as British Airways and Swiss.

If you do not want to hire a car local taxis and buses are available from Geneva airport, or private trans...
