Property Description
A well equipped chalet style apartment in a quiet hamlet with its own lifts and ski slopes providing accommodation for up to eight with spacious living areas, mezzanine floor and three balconies. Offering magnificent views.

Le Domaine des Cimes apartment top left and the view from the balcony.

All services in the village including 3 restaurant/bars within 5 minutes walk.

Access to Portes du Soleil is 25 minutes by car. An exceptionally friendly village with superb skiing in winter and family activities in summer.

St.Jean d'Aulps is a traditional Savoyard village in the heart of the world-famous Portes du Soleil ski area just south of Lake Geneva. Overlooking the village from the hillside above is the hamlet of La Grande Terche, an agreeable blend of rustic old buildings and tasteful modern developments at the base of the ski area.

Neither St Jean nor its satellite station offers any British packaged accommodation. Instead, the resort is very much run by the locals who openly welcome a wide and cosmopolitan clientele. If you are tired of feeling like another statistic in a multi-million pound industry, and would prefer a vacation in more traditional surroundings, then this could be the resort for you.

Activities & Attractions
At the far end of the hamlet is "Les Cimes" and on the top floor our duplex apartment has in our opinion the best location in the resort with fine views both south and east across the valley. Nowhere in the resort is more than five minutes walk and the lift station is barely 200 yards.

You can ski both to and from the accommodation. The local skiing starts at La Grande Terche and claims around 40km of piste served by 15 lifts. As well as a superb nursery area at the top of the gondola, there are a variety of longer runs mostly through the trees catering for most levels of skier.

The scenery and terrain are diverse and include two sweeping 7km descents as well as stunning views as far as Lake Geneva. Keen skiers have the whole of the Portes du Soleil at their disposal with 600km of runs and over 200 lifts on a single pass. Morzine/Les Gets is less than 20 minutes drive away as is access to Avoriaz and from there the main circuit. In all there are twelve resorts to be explored in both France and Switzerland and the possibilities are endless.

Summer details: La Grande Terche is not merely a winter resort. From May through to October, it offers unparalleled opportunities for mountain walks, alpine restaurants, horse-riding, white-water canoeing, golf (Les Gets), paragliding, mountain biking and tennis. The weather is superb, and there are never crowds. Lake Geneva is only 30 km. away.
