About this location

The Rhône-Alpes region

During the winter, the village offers 34 km of downhill ski slopes around the wonderful Roc d'Enfer with beautiful views of Lake Geneva, "The Dents du Midi" and the Mont-Blanc range.

Saint Jean d'Aulps village and resort, offers skiers the magnificent ski area named 'La Grande Terche' which has splendid scenery and panoramic views. The beautiful village is a convivial resort where you can also practice snowshoe trekking, paragliding and sledging. Saint Jean d'Aulps also benefits with a free ski bus link towards the other ski resorts of the Portes du Soleil. The Portes du Soleil region consists of 650km of pistes spread over two countries (France and Switzerland) accessed by 12 stations including Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz.

In the summer you will have the opportunity to go caving, climbing, quad biking, white water rafting, lake swimming, hot air ballooning, paintballing, paragliding as well as do via ferrata (climbing mountains with handrails, steps and footbridges).

There are 650 km of mountain bike trails across the Portes du Soleil, there are 14 stations connected in July-August by 24 ski lifts accessible to mountain bikers.

The area features 10 descent tracks, boarder cross, trial circuits, NEW for 2012, Pump Track (a field of bumps and bank turns)….. the mountain bikers paradise!

During summer there are over 200 km of sign-posted footpaths through the stunning surrounding countryside, which, if desired will take you all the way to the mountain tops. These paths explore the Vallee d'Aulps and offer you the ability to discover the different villages, lakes, mountains tops and rich alpine fauna and flora.

In both the winter and the summer, Le Grande Terche and St Jean d'Aulps offers a nice liveliness, and the events program is available each week at the Tourist Office.

La Grande Terche

The apartment is situated in La Grande Terche a quaint little village above St Jean d'Aulps, which is a 10 minute drive from Morzine. It is a 2 minute walk from the gondola 'La Grande Terche'. The immediate area has various ski hire shops, Sherpa supermarket, launderette, ski school, pub, two restaurants and a take away. La Grande Terche is part of the Portes du Soleil ski domain but is not linked, there is an excellent free bus service available but we would recommend a hire car for flexibility.

Avalanche is a good restaurant serving a good selection of French food and steak. Auberge de la Terche offers superb traditional French food such as fondue and raclette plus an extensive pizza menu in a traditional rustic atmosphere. The food here is highly recommended. There is also a good take away place offering burgers and pizza.

St Jean d'Aulps is a couple of minutes down the road, it has some lovely French restaurants plus an excellent British run restaurant (Petite Coq) serving a wide variety of food. There is also a pub, tabac, post office, pharmacy, supermarket, gift shop, ski hire, patisserie and laundrette.

The Discovery Centre - An old monastic farm which was witness to 700 years of monastic life is now a museum which explains in an enjoyable way the everyday life of the monks and their functions in the community as well as the surprising story behind the abbey and the secret healing properties of medicinal plants used by the monks. The abbey still has its superb 13th century façade.

"Excellent location and cosy fun apartment"

A pleasant tidy apartment with lots of room for a family of four, my boys loved the bunk beds with the curtain den and the Wii console made their day. Comfortable double bed and lots of kitchen helpful utensils for self catering purposes. The views are beautiful and the local village had some great bars and amenities. The local area is stunning and we had a fantastic stay here in St Jean Aulps with Montroid lake close by and Morzine. We will be booking again.

"Excellent stay in a great apartment"

Three of us stayed in the apartment and found it a great, and good base for our ski holiday. Well located in Le Grand Terche, just a few hundred yards from the ski lift in the village. Larger ski areas such as Les Getz, Morzine and Ardent (and more) are just a short 15mins drive.
Booking the apartment was easy - Elizabeth (owner) and Regis (agent in the village) were very helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay and will look to return in the future, and the apartment was excellent value for money.
