For the price it is a reasonable place to stay. The 4 person studio is barely big enough for 2 adults but you know this when you book an appartment in France. It is located very close to the parkinglot La falaise so you do not need to bother with horscarts to get to your appartment. The centre is still... More

There was a group of 10 of us that stayed in the Douschka (sp??) apartments at Avoriaz. First of all, let me say, we truly enjoyed our time. The apartments are a bit dated but it met our needs. Avoriaz is a beautiful, affordable place to stay. The good was delicious and location great. But we had a few headaches... More

Visited Avoriaz for skiing weekend with friends and stayed at Balcons. Great location - close to the drop off point for the resort (Avoriaz doesn't allow vehicles), with ski shop in the basement and ski in/ski out access. Accommodation was basic (four blokes in a studio flat was a bit claustrophobic after four nights) but comfortable, clean and perfectly adequate... More

In search of a ski-in ski-out resort, we stumbled upon these apartments in Avoriaz. We were very pleased with our find. The rooms were simple and clean with easy access to the slopes. As other reviewers have mentioned it was a little hard to find exactly which block the buildings are at because our bookings on alpharooms had different names... More

I stayed another time with my family in Avoriaz, this time in the Pierre & Vacances « Balcons de Soleil ». In the past we’ve been staying in Club Med. Our experience was excellent. The Resort Avoriaz is simply great, from my point of wiew for families as well as for friends or couples. Tons of high level Ski, Restaurants... More

The apartments are situated just a five minute walk from the main town of Avoriaz, but directly behind the ski school meeting point and the lifts to The Stash, and just "up slope" from the main lift area. The apartments are extremely well equipped, and well cleaned. There is plenty of room in the one bedroom for a family of... More

We had a studio in the Sepia building for 4 people which was fine for a family with small children but would have been inadequate for 4 adults. There was a double sofa-bed in the main living area and a bunk-bed in the entrance area which could be closed off to make a seperate bedroom at night. The appartment is... More

Avoriaz is a fantastic location for all levels of skiers and for families. We stayed at the Balcons du Soleil Elinka block which is rated 4* by PV but only 3* by the French tourist board. This should at least be mentioned on their site. The flats were ok, but too small (flat for 6-8 had only 1 toilet, 2... More

I stayed here as part of a group of 5 people for the first week in February. The first thing to note about the Balcons du Soleil is that the accommodation appears to be split into different buildings but all are within touching distance of each other. Some of the names are Saskia, Douchka and Chapka among others. We were... More
