Apartment in Les Carroz, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Village Location, 800 M From Ski Lift
My name is Annabel and with my husband Micah and 2 children we have enjoyed 14 years of fantastic skiing holidays in Les Carroz. We live in Surrey and all have a passion for travelling.
Annabel purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Annabel chose les Carroz-d'Araches
We chose Les Carroz because it is not a purpose built resort, but a French village which is busy all year round and is very "French"! The village itself is fairly small and now our children are a little older, they are able to walk to shops etc in the knowledge that they are safe and not going to get lost! The ski area accommodates for all abilities -( the children started in ski school at the age of 4 )- and provides skiing late into the season with Flaine being easily accessible.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is a short walk form a well stocked supermarket, the main village square and bars and restaurants. It is in walking distance from nearest ski lift or if you prefer, the free ski bus stops right outside the apartment. Having been to many resorts, we love the proximity of all you need and feel it ticks all the boxes!

Cosy little apartment with all you need included.
Loved this apartment perfect for a family of 4. Not far from free ski bus and so close to village and lovely restaurants. Having the pool, sauna and jacuzzi a real treat! We were lucky with the snow so a wonderful weeks holiday.also the new Carfor supermarket so close was perfect for bread and pain au chocolate fresh every day !
Thanks Loude! Glad you had an enjoyable stay!
Good apartment in a great location.
We spent a week here in February 2019 with three kids. The apartment is ideally located in the town centre, close to ski bus pick up and drop off points. It was clean and well equipped with essentials. There is an ice rink outside which was a big hit the the kids. We also loved the pool in the basement area, which was a delight after a hard day on the slopes. Friendly and helpful host also gave us lots of useful information in advance. Sad to leave it all behind.
Really nice apartmnent in a great village
We have just returned from a very enjoyable week in this apartment. The apartment was a very good size for a family of 4 (a lot bigger than some other apartments for 4/6 people). There was also plenty of storage space. The apartment was clean and well-equipped - we ate in every morning and most evenings and found we had everything we needed. Having access to a pool and sauna was particularly useful on the day that we were rained off. The apartment is close to the centre of the village as you can cut across the square with the ice rink and go up a few stairs to find yourself in the main village square. That will also take you past the local supermarket which is about 50 yards from the door. Bus A returns you to just outside the main entrance to the block (3rd stop from the telecabine) and you could pick up the bus from there as well (although you would go on a bit of a lap of the village). We used to walk to the main stop at the office du tourisme (on the main village square) having left our skis and boots in the lockers at the telecabine (thoroughly recommended).
Les Carroz was a great village - big enough to have a few restaurants and bars (and even a range of craft beers in the Grizzly) and all the relevant services but small enough that you still felt like you were in a mountain village. The ski area was very good. We were lucky that we had excellent snow cover which meant that all the bowls were full of skiing and all the village runs were open and well-covered. The local tree-lined runs came into their own when the cloud descended.
I'd very happily stay at this apartment and in Les Carroz again.
Many thanks Ian, glad you had a great stay in our apartment.
