Description from owner

Why 'Les Carroz' ?

The main reason we decided to buy in Les Carroz is that away from the ski season we like to have day trips to Switzerland (1hour) and Italy (2 hours) and to generally explore Europe.

Why 'Claudes' ?

Although the chalet in which Claudes is situated, it only 15 years old, it was designed and is maintained in the traditional Savoyard style - pine and red and white decorations,

When we bought it 15 years ago our children were small and the fact that we are in a pedestrian precinct every morning they went to the shop to by breakfast and of course use their French. Again the ice rink is in the precinct and only a 50 sec walk away.

The fact that the ski bus stops outside the flat is again ideal for tired little and old legs.

It is an ideal family location with toy chest, books, DVDs, and many games. As the mezzanine has a low ceiling it is child friendly and can be used either as a play area or an additional bed room. The flat is suitable for 1 or 2 couples or a family

Although our flat is small it is well equipped with plenty of cupboard space. The fact that we have separate ski locker and ski room plus the entrance hall with boot chest all adds up to increase the area.

Another important point is that the lift travels from the garage level -2 up to the top level 4 and our flat.

IDEAL FAMILY HOLIDAY LOCATION.property suitable for 4 adults + 1 child sleeping in the mezzanine

Bus stop 'Fermme du Soleil'.

The bus passes the front entrance to the appartment every 10 minutes. Les Carroz operates a one way system therefore allow 10 mins to base of telecabine and 3 minutes to return.

Les Carroz holds the "Les petite Montagnards" label for its superb children's facilities. During high season there are different activities in the town square for all ages.

CLAUDES is a 4th floor apartment (lift) within a traditional Savoyard chalet with a south/west balcony overlooking forest. and the Mont Blanc mountain range. It is on the edge of the village with the ice rink, outdoor centre,shops and town square 1 minute walk. Les Carroz is both a winter and summer resort offering a wide range of outdoor activities.

For those wishing a more relaxing holiday there are many street cafes, concerts and escorted / unescorted alpine flower walks.

More Less

The Grand Massif region

The Grand Massif region in the Haute Savoie is the lesser known and the least developed. The villages have maintained the old charm of the Savoyard alpine way of life, where the chalets are adorned with colourful window boxes and church bells echo across the valleys. It always amazes me how quickly the mountains burst with wild flowers so soon after the snow has melted. It is a paradise for the wild flower enthusiast, artist and walker. The air is very clear and the afternoon sun can be very strong high in the mountains with a temperature drop by early evening. However, our balcony in Les Carroz is sheltered by the mountains and is normally warm enough for all meals to be eaten outside.

Les Carroz-d'Araches

The old town square forms the centre of Les Carroz d'Araches which is lined with pavement cafe bars, small shops and restaurants. Nothing is too far away and a car is not essential as most items can be purchased locally. There are several ski / mountainerring hire shops as well as VTT cycle centres.The centre "Montagne Activites" - Hte Montagne, Escalade, Canyoning, Via Ferrata is located in the square. We have a cinema and three churches of which two are twelfth-century.

Lying at 1140-2500m the town offers one of the longest winter ski seasons in the Alpes. Les Carroz d'Araches Flaine, Sameons, Sixt and Morillon telecabine system allows extensive coverage of the Grand Massif region (265km) for the VTT cyclist, walker or skier.

“Excellent Location”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2013

The apartment is a great location. Within a two minute walk to the centre of the village giving easy access to bars, restaurants and shops. The ski bus stop is 20 metres away and the buses run every 10 minutes. The apartment itself is well equipped, better than most we have stayed in, and very comfortable. Having use of a lift and underground car parking is an added bonus. We had a very enjoyable stay.

“A Hidden Gem In Les Carroz”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

A wonderful apartment, coupled with near perfect snow conditions, made for a lovely holiday. Apartment facilities are superb, with almost anything you can think of needing, hidden in the cupboards. superb location in the town with easy access to the ski bus. Will certainly book again, would recommend to anyone. Stayed January 2013

“GREAT FOR ALL SEASONS”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2012

I have stayed in this apartment twice in winter and once in summer. It has everything one needs but in addition has a superb view, the ski bus stops just outside, shops and the winter skating rink are just around the corner, so hot croissants take less than 5 mins to collect. In summer we were amazed at how much was going on. We went for a stage of the Tour de France at Les Gets, easily accessible by car, but there were superb guided mountain walks and some form of entertainment in the main square each evening. THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED

“Great, comfortable apartment in the heart of Les Carroz”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2012

I stayed with my two teenage kids for a week at Clauds 20B. It is an excellently situated property close to the centre of the village, the ice rink and, of course, the slopes themselves. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time, the apartment is well stocked and comfortable, warm and inviting. As it is on the top floor it is very quiet, and there is an elevator for tired legs. There is a large ski boot room adjacent which provides plenty of storage. I look forward to staying at Clauds 20B again next year.
