Three of us stayed here in January 2009 and were very impressed by this apartment. It is in the best location in Flaine, with the big south facing windows letting in the sunshine and superb views across the resort. the apartment is truly ski-in ski-out, one can walk out of the back of the complex directly onto the piste, with a short run down to the first chair lift linking you to the rest of the Flaine resort.
The apartment is very conveniently located, with a 10 minute walk to the nearest supermarket (open 7 days to 8pm) and the free 24 hr funicular which takes you into the heart of Flaine.
The complex staff were extremely helpful and friendly and will arrange everything from morning breakfast (if you don't want to cook yourself) , morning bakery deliveries to ski pass delivery, and are always on hand to answer questions or offer advice. The staff spoke fluent English and were always keen to speak in English.
The apartment itself is extremely luxurious and very comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.
Flaine itself is probably one of the best resorts I have been to for snowboarding & skiing, including many of the other Alpine resorts and Jackson Hole in the USA. The resort was purpose built as a ski resort so all the runs end up back in Flaine and there are good chair lift connections to the rest of the Grand Massif ski area. Being relatively high at around 2500m at the top then winter snow is pretty much guaranteed, unlike some of the lower resorts.
We drove from Geneva airport which took about an hour and fifteen minutes, though I’d recommend snow tyres / chains for the winter months as the mountain pass into Flaine could be exciting otherwise! Once there though the car is not needed so it stayed parked all week in the heated garage which was a nice bonus.
We will certainly be going back to this apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone, whether you want to ski / snowboard or just want to relax in the pool.
