The apartments have electric radiators and their own immersion heaters (hot water when YOU want it).

Combloux is an unspoilt traditional Savoie village, not frequented by the UK tour companies but it was one of the first ski resorts established in France due to its good snow record, magnificent views of Mont Blanc and excellent central position. It is only 8 miles from the autoroute to Calais or Geneva.

We use this site to control bookings so availability is correct and you can "book now". If you do, you give card details but no payment is taken unless we confirm within 24 hours. You would then pay half price, the remainder together with £100 security deposit is due 30 days before your holiday. If you "query now" we are happy to answer questions and hold a firm option so that you can confirm travel before committing. Before you book with us or any other owner be sure to understand access, layout of beds, rules and cancellation terms - they vary.

About The Owner

We bought the apartments in 1991 for our own family holidays and have been letting ever since.

We wanted to holiday with friends but not dictate what they did and when, so we started with two small apartments instead of one large one. We enjoy meeting and skiing with newcomers and helping them to enjoy family holidays.

We created one of the first booking websites and have introduced hundreds of UK families to this beautiful village. Many are regular visitors and several have bought their own apartments.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1991

Why The Owner chose Combloux

Combloux is about the most accessible ski resort by car from Calais or Geneva and centrally located with good road access to a dozen nearby resorts. Parking is plentiful and generally free.

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty which has escaped the large scale developments that would put it on the beaten track for commercial holidays. It is perfectly placed for the best views of Mont Blanc. In winter there is a huge connected area of skiing to satisfy all levels of ability.

In summer, compared with Scotland we found the scenery more spectacular and not plagued with midges. The mountain air, friendly people, walking and just being there is fantastic. Compared with Cornwall we found there was more to do outdoors and the weather was far better. Nice beaches too!

What makes this apartment unique

Skiing, walking, relaxing, fresh air and fantastic Pays du Mont Blanc scenery. Dozens of outdoor activities and places to visit. Wine, cheese, charcuterie and French culture.

Practical and very cozy flat!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Tricia were extremely helpful and gave us lots of tips with things to do before and during the trip. The flat has everything you need, it's just less than 200 meters from the ski lift and also very helpful if you have a car as you can reach loads of other ski resort around the area.

We were 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 kids and we fit perfectly in the flat, If you are looking for a trip on a budget do not hesitate.

We are definitely coming back next year.

Thank you Bob and Tricia

Everything we needed from a typical French ski-apartment.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, the booking process was easy and building a rapport with the owners gave confidence - we even had the pleasure of meeting them whilst in Combloux.

If you have never booked a French ski-apartment before, do not expect luxury - practicality is what these apartments are about. Bob & Tricia currently have a small selection and there is sure to be a layout to suit. We were a party of two couples and a two year old, and the set up of the apartment was ideal. The kitchen is compact but is well equipped with cooking utensils and various bits and bobs. With four adults, the separate WC & bathroom is another useful bit of the layout when you are all trying to get out in the morning!!

We stayed in Combloux as a base for visiting various stages of Le Tour 2016. I can very much recommend this location for a summer break in this beautiful area. Draw lots for who is to go to the boulangerie/patisserie in the mornings though as it is a bit of a trek on foot!! That said, it is well worth getting to know the various footpaths in the area as some of the views are breathtaking.

Bob & Tricia's apartments are very keenly priced (I presume because end of let cleaning is the responsibility of the user). We found our apartment was spotlessly clean, and left it likewise for the next users. Geneva is an easy drive along the reasonably priced toll roads, and if future editions of Le Tour visit this local area again, I will certainly be contacting Bob & Tricia again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you. A very informative comment and it was great to meet you. Ski apartments are cosy in winter but the living space suits fewer occupants in summer. On the other hand, winter visitors would be surprised to find the scenery is even better in summer. End of let cleaning is not normally included simply because there are too many visitors for the local workforce; and our prices are relatively low simply because we put value before profit.

Hosts amazing. Apartment cleverly designed.

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed by the hosts who went above and beyond to ensure we made the most of our visit (even took my husband for an advanced ski; booked ski school for kids). The accommodation was perfect for us. Very cleverly designed to fit in 6 guests. It was amazing that the kids could sleigh at the patio door. Thanks so much Bob and Tricia.

By-car by far one of the best

  • 5 of 5

We ( family of 4) have stayed in all but one of Bob and Tricia,s apartments over the lest several years, we found their apartments by chance but once you have sampled the location, Combloux is our most visited resort, it's a little know Gem hidden away from us I think because the French want to keep it all for them selves, the runs are quite, very little queuing and the food and prices are excellent , The apartments are home from home and so close to the lifts its either a 2 minute drive or a 5 min walk to the nearest chair lift, in good snow you can ski back to within 50 meters, do yourself a favour discover Combloux, and either flying or Driving we have done both its so easy to get to and from even with this years problems where half of France got stuck in the snow we made it back home driving, as you are so close to the major roads.

Although far from the coast, the Alps have hot summer days and popular lakes with beaches and water sports. Combloux has an outdoor lido with superb views of Mont Blanc.


Combloux is just over one hour by autoroute from Geneva airport. There is a regular connecting coach but car hire is strongly advised to get the best of this area. It is also 550 miles by autoroute from Calais (7¼ hours driving plus stops).


Sallanches 12km, Chamonix 32km, Albertville 44km, Geneva 60km, Annecy 70km.
