Studio apartment in popular resort of Les Deux Alpes. Ski in and and subject to snow. Fantastic views from balcony.
Brand new (2008) studio apartment in the popular French resort of Les Deux Alpes. Ski in and out subject to snow conditions, with the nearest lift about 50m away. ***New for 2013!*** The old Diable red eggs have now gone, and been replaced by a brand new high speed chair lift with protective "bubble"! And even better, the lift station is closer to the apartment. Photographs to be posted as soon as available, but this is fantastic news for the apartment. Skiing and snowboarding to suit all levels, with a fantastic snowpark for boarders or adventurous skiiers! Wide choice of restaurants, shops and bars within a few minutes walk. Easy access from Grenoble airport which is served by most budget airlines.
Summer holidays too!
Les Deux Alpes has a glacier for summer skiing but the resort is also a lively mountain sports resort with mountain biking, climbing, walking and even a 9 hole golf course within sight of the apartment. The road cycling is superb, with access to Alpe D'Huez, Col de Galibier, Col du Telegraphe and Col de Croix de Fer, to name just a few! The summer nights on the balcony are spectacular as well. A bargain summer break!
Great service all round - fab appartment, well equiped, clean and modern. Appartment block also nice and other resdents friendly and welcoming. Superb instructions and details given about resort and location - photograph drections very handy! Very very happy with the holiday and would book wth Mr Pettitt again! many thanks.
Great setting with easy access to and from the slopes. Comfortable apartment with every facility we needed. Probably one of the BEST situated apartments in the resort and view is to die for!
I couldnt fault this property at all. The owners and the agent were very helpful and friendly and made our stay very pleasant. The apartment was everything we could have asked for and more. Very clean, modern, and literally a few hundred metres from the ski lift, restaurants, and shops. A ten minute walk to the main centre of the town but nothing we couldnt cope with as you can easily store skis etc near the main ski lift. The views where absolutely amazing from the apartment, I was so overwhelmed when I saw them from the balcony, the pictures just dont do it justice. Overall this apartment is worth its weight in gold, I will most certainly be recommending it to friends and family and you can bet Ill be back next year. Thank you for a wonderful holiday in Les Deux Alpes.
property was in a good location to the slopes. very clean very well equipped.would highly recommend to anyone
A very comfortable apartment with an absolutely stunning outlook. Situated at the far end of Les Deux Alpes in the quieter part of the village. Well equipped though a little short of cooking items. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. The owners representatives in Les Deux Alpes were very helpful indeed. We found that there was everything we needed in the village.
Thank you for your review, I agree with you about the view, never get bored of it! As you were the first 2-week guests to stay I am really interested in your comments about cooking items, and have emailed you for more detail so this can be improved out of season. Thanks again!
Further comment: as a result of feedback, many new kitchen items purchased for 2010
Quiet location but all the services (restaurants, supermarket) around. But car necessary, especially in the summer if you want to do snow because the mainlift Jandri is not close. Apartment small but enough for 2-3 people, kitchen well equipped and everything worked well, also enough hot water. Only "bad" thing was the tv that doesnt have antenna so you couldnt see tv channels. But dvd and cd player were quite nice things.
I am glad that you were happy with the apartment. I would say however that I have never needed a car - in winter there is direct access to the slopes from the Diable lift and in summer the free bus picks up and drops off outside Diable to get to the Jandri gondola and the glacier.
The TV is advertised as being British and therefore will not show channels, as you say it is designed to be used with the DVD player.

We had a great week! Everything from the flights, transfer, accommodation and of course the skiing couldnt be faulted. Your apartment suited our needs perfectly - we found the location and the view superb - it was lovely sitting on the balcony for the last few rays of sun after a day on the slopes. The apartment was comfortable, clean and well equipped ... Thank you for your efficient service - we would certainly recommend to others.
I cannot rate this property highly enough. Fantastic in every respect.
As has previously been stated, its located at the quieter end of town, but only minutes walk to everything you could need (supermarkets, bars, restaurants etc). There are some lovely places to eat and drink at that end of town and you tend to find yourself further away from the noisier bars and clubs. Even if this is your thing, they are only a 5-10 minute walk away.
The resort has some fantastic eateries and boasts the best restaurant Ive ever eaten at (Igloo Gormond, at the other end of the resort, highly recommended).
Ski hire is close by and there are numerous places to choose from.
The owner was also very helpful in providing information and ensuring that my stay was as comfortable as possible.
Without a doubt the highlight of the apartment is the location. It is yards from a ski on-ski off lift and right next to the lift station is a bus stop where the free bus dro ps throughout the resort. Despite what other reviews have said, I do not think a car is essential. Public transport is excellent.
I was there late in the season (beginning of April) and the high altitude meant we had snow every night. Conditions were wonderful.
Im going again in December this year and will certainly be visiting again in 2011.
"We had a wonderful stay and very much enjoyed skiing back to the apartment after a long day's skiing. Nonetheless, we had a fabulous stay and I will certainly recommend your place to my friends."Ms C.K.
"The mountain views from the balcony make it difficult to get out in the morning! Good location next to the lifts and at the quiet end of the resort. Considering a summer break now."Mrs M.A., New Barnet
"We loved the flat. It's in a great location, you made a good choice."Mr N.A., Croydon
The sleeping accommodation is two double sofa beds plus one single bunk, so the maxiumum occupancy is 5. The cooking facilities consist of a hob and microwave oven, plus kettle and toaster with all the usual pots, pans and tableware.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of the block which gives the best panoramic views of the mountains to be found in the whole resort. There is no lift but the climb is worth it! (as well as keeping the prices low)
The TV is not French so will not show TV programmes, but has a brand new DVD player which will play MP3s, DivX movies as well as normal DVDs.
About the owner
I am a Barrister in the UK and a very keen skier. My apartment is my first purchase abroad and I hope you will find it to your liking: I was very impressed with the resort and the location is ideal.
