Summer / Winter Apartment in Les Deux Alpes, Isere, France - Peaceful Location, 5 Mins Walk to the nearest Lift and 10 Mins into the Centre of Town
About Richard Colvill
Hi, My wife and I are proud parents of two children and we love skiing/boarding and the great outdoors. We fell in love with L2A many years ago, before we were married and had children, and the place seems to have get better every year since. We had our first family holiday here at Xmas 2011 and it was magical. We hope that you enjoy your stay here as much as we do. Everything you need to enjoy a great holiday is on your doorstep and the views across the mountains from the comfort of our living room, at the end of a long hard day, are captivating and beautiful.
Richard Colvill purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Richard Colvill chose Mont-de-Lans
Since the Millennium L2A has undergone a major refurbishment replacing all of the 1960s architecture with wooden clad fascias, transforming the look of the place from purpose-built to a chocolate-box alpine resort. The scenery as you approach the resort is simply stunning, with the majestic back drop of the mountains, alpine trees and and views of the beautiful Lac Noir resevoir. Our home is situated off the main road after you enter the resort in a peaceful location hidden amongst a development of traditional chalet style apartments, with communal areas and private parking. Our ground floor apartment facing the back of the chalet benefits from a raised terrace that has private unrestricted views across the development, towards the main mountain slopes and L2A 1800.
What makes this Apartment unique
L2A is primarily located along one long high street from Mont De Lans to Venosc and everything branches off it, so you can walk into town in under 5 mins, to the main gondola in 10 mins and the length of town in 15 mins. Located 50m away from home is a supermarket that stocks all the groceries you will require for a holiday, thus negating the need to bring provisions with you from home. There a free service bus stop 100m from home which, subject to route, will take you anywhere around the town, which is particularly convenient if travelling with children. This bus drops you off on the doorstep of both the main gondola and the ski school meeting points and all the bars/restaurants along the way. L2A could not be any easier to get around. We love it and we hope you do too.

After spending a while looking around I found this property, which seemed to be a league above the rest I was looking at and I can't say I was disappointed. The apartment is furinished and equipped to a high standard and was clean upon arrival. The landloards were very plesant and helpful regarding any queries I had before and during the stay and we had no problems at check out. Parking was not an issue at all and the apartment was within walking distance to the main part of the village. Would defiantly stay there again!!
