STAY: Rèsidence Les Grandes Alpes

September last year, we spent 2 nights at La Clusaz, France. We stayed in a charming chalet-style apartment which is just a 3-minute walk from the ski slopes…

Each apartment has its own private balcony facing the mountains. Imagine waking up to this view …

Bedrooms

The apartment has 3 bedrooms which is just perfect for small groups.

Room 3: One Queen sized Bed

We stayed in the third room. 🙂 Notice that opening on the ceiling? It’s actually a window! Lying down, I could see the stars. What way to sleep, huh?

Kitchen

The kitchen area is fully equipped with dishwasher, induction stove, microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator.

don’t mind our mess :p

The refrigerator door matched the cabinet doors so it is concealed. I started opening cabinets, inspecting the contents.

I found this on top of our dining table: a cleaning set! So thoughtful.

The dining table is in between the kitchen and the living area.

Bathroom and Toilet

The apartment only has one bathroom and one separate toilet. It was a bit challenging since we had two kids and seven adults sharing the facilities. Happy to report that there were no “accidents”.

The toilet is behind me. It’s just a small room with a toilet. No faucet. No bidet. Challenging, I tell you. For one who is used to “washing” after, we had to improvise. :p

Living Room

Actually, the kitchen, dining and living areas are in one room. It’s not a big apartment, afterall. There is a flat screen TV, a three seater sofa bed and a couple of single seaters.

If you noticed, the ceilings have different heights. So it’s advised to move with caution. I bumped my head several times during our stay. Nothing serious. It was actually a source of laughter for everybody.

The Verdict:

Rèsidences Les Grandes Alpes is a great place to stay. Highly recommended. The location is perfect and the price is very reasonable (we paid about 256 € for 2 nights)!
