Comfortable apartment of the 2nd and top floor of an old (1829) chalet.
This is not a square-box apartment in Morzine. It is perfect for family or group ski holiday, especially if there are non-skiers that just want to relax in the rocking chair in front of the fire whilst others ski.
Great for summer vacations enjoying the sunshine down on the terrace or trying to multitude of different summer activities. Hiking, hunting for alpine flowers and numerous festivals are scattered throughout the inter-seasons for a cheaper getaway.
The Route De L'Abbaye is a quiet road with a great mixture of local French residents and foreign/second-home-owned Jean D'Aulps has the feel of a 'real' village, as opposed to a purpose built resort - the buzz of a modern resort is just 5 minute drive up the road at La Grande Terche or in Morzine. There is a very good Petit Carrefour mini-supermarket, pattisserie and boulangerie in the village (15 minutes walk), as well as restaurants, cafe/ English bar and other shops. There is a big Carrefour supermarket (supplying all the local area) half-way to Morzine (5 minutes by car).
