"Great location, excellent spacious apartment, fully equipped!"
We stayed in this apartment as a family of 5, kids aged 10, 14 and 17. The bedroom with double and bunks was great for the kids and we had the double en-suite. No need for making up any beds. It was… More
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Apartment Choucas so much. As you say, it is a perfect size for a large family - with two sizeable bedrooms and bathrooms. I am sorry if the cleaning/service charge was not made sufficiently clear - we will review this. The cleaning is arranged locally by the owners rather than by the booking agent which is why it is paid separately from the rent. We very much hope that you will be able to return to Avoriaz Chalets in due course.

"Fantastic, Spacious, Spotless!"
From the second we booked with Phil we were taken care off, they sent us information on the resort, ski hire, transfers and other bits of interest which was excellent. The apartment was large for one in Avoriaz with 2 big double rooms which is hard to find both with double beds! It was spotless and homely and had everything we needed. It was an added bonus having 2 bathrooms one with a bath which was used a lot after a long day on the slopes! Brilliant location for getting into the centre of town and was truly ski in/out. We had a tremendous week and will be booking again for next year. Thanks to the team for helping us out during the week and for checking us in/out so well. The arrival bottle of wine was a really nice touch! Thanks again Jules and family x
Thank you for your kind words and we are delighted that you found Apartment Choucas to your liking. We do think that the block is in an excellent position for true ski in/ski out ease. We very much hope to welcome you back and returning guests do receive a loyalty discount. Kindest regards

"Great location and comfortable living space."
Despite our delayed arrival, we were promptly greeted at the apartment with the keys. The apartment is comfortably and tastefully appointed. The appliances were all in good working order. If it matters to you, there is no washer/dryer and it is almost 10 euros for a load of laundry at the local laundromat which is next to the Sherpa Grocery. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The apartment was cozy and warm, with adequate space for a family of 5. The internet worked well, even better after resetting the wireless router. Ski in and ski out was unbeatable. Multilple lifts are accessed just a short ski down the hill. The apartment is cleaned mid-week and at the end for an additional fee that was not clearly indicated until after booking (our only complaint).
Thank you for your kind words - we will certainly emphasise the cleaning charges more strongly. We hope to welcome you back to Avoriaz in the near future.

Thank you for your very kind words and for making the review. Apartment Choucas is a lovely property and you have already booked Chalet Neva for next season which is of the same standard.

"Fantastic! Will definitely come back!"
We stayed in Choucas at the end of last ski season and had the most amazing holiday! The staff at Avoriaz Chalets were incredibly helpful from start to finish. From being picked up at Geneva airport, to arriving in resort and checking in to the chalet, the staff could not have been more helpful. During the week we found that the Avoriaz Chalets team really do know Avoriaz and the surrounding area like the back of their hands. They gave us great tips on where to ski and made some great recommendations on where to eat as well. When one of our lightbulbs blew in the bedroom, they were there within the hour and everything was fixed. The chalet itself is beautifully decorated and the views are breathtaking. The kitchen and bathrooms are all of very high quality; there was always plenty of hot water and a nice strong shower to greet us off the slopes! The ski in/ski out facility is brilliant too! We wanted a comfortable and easy ski holiday and we got all of that and more! We will definitely be returning. Many thanks to the Avoriaz Chalet team! We're about to book our 2013 stay.....!
Thank you for your very kind words. It was actually the owners who looked after you rather than "staff" and I can see they have done a great job. This is the standard we try for with all the Avoriaz Chalet owners and we very much look forward to welcoming you back.

"Gorgeous slopes and great apartment"
We have just returned from 2 weeks staying in an apartment in Sassanka. The apartment was lovely modern and roomy, it had everything on hand that you would need for a holiday including a ski/boot room which steps straight out onto the slopes! We were well looked after by our hosts Nikki and Philip, who also provided us with a lot of advice regarding slopes and restaurants which was extremely helpful. The resort itself is very well catered for and despite our misgivings about going to a purpose built resort, the location was stunning perched on top of a cliff and the buildings themseles are clad in wood to soften the whole apartment block effect which helps! An amazing array of slopes to choose from for all levels and weather conditions. All in all we had a fabulous trip.
Thank you for taking the trouble to review Apartment Choucas and we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to help you discover the charms of Avoriaz and the enormous Portes du Soleil ski area. We very much hope to welcome you back.
