“Well located modern ski apartment for families and groups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I have stayed at Residence L'Ourson once with a group of friends and once with my family with young children. Both times I have had great holidays, and the flat has been clean and met all my requirements and expectations for a holiday rental.

The flat itself has new, modern, comfortable furnishings with a few nice touches that make it feel homely such as some art on the walls and a selection of DVDs and books. Everything works as it should and the supply of hot water was particularly appreciated after days on the pistes. (Although it is very hot - take care!)

The location of the apartment is excellent as it provides the option to ski the Roc d'Enfer pistes behind the apartment, which is ideal for children or beginners or to drive 10 minutes to the larger Avoriaz and Morzine ski areas which suit all abilities. You can even ski to Switzerland! Within 5 minutes walk are key amenities such as a small grocer, restaurants, bars, ski equipment hire and of course the ski lift and ski school.

Don't expect a huge kitchen, but there is a hob, small oven/ microwave and a fridge which are ample for self catering, and in practice we ended up eating out frequently in Pere Bills and the Avalanche restaurant which are 5 minutes walk away.

I would definitely go back to this apartment and am considering making a summer booking for some mountain biking.

“Great apartment in the winter or summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed here for 2weeks skiing in April 2013 and for a 2 week holiday last summer - the apartment works well for a large family (we are 5), and is able to sleep 8 so probably good for 2 smaller families too. It's right on the ski slope in St Jean D'Aulps, which is a great village for family skiing and close to the rest of the portes de soleil.

We'd stay here again happily!

“Nice large new apartment near Portes du Soliel skiing area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012 for a stay in February 2010

The apartment has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two balconies and was spacious and clean. It also has bunk beds so it can sleep eight in total, but we did not need the extra beds. It is a short drive to Morzine and Avoriaz and very well located for access to those resorts and the Portes du Soleil generally. It is in a small village called St Jean D'Alps which has its own skiing area and decent shops and restaurants. Definitely go to Pere Bill's for the pizzas.

The apartment also has large living-room next to the kitchen and a TV, a DVD player and a games console for the young (and not so young!).

Be careful of the hot water because it can be very hot!
