"Perfect location, great gym and pool. Lovely well equipped apartment."

Mrs Tinley, Jersey



"Great accommodation in avoriaz"

Miss Williams



"Very well maintained and great location"

Mrs Antunes Da Silva



"Great apartment with good size rooms and living area. A bit of a walk to the village and shops, which was the only downside."

Christelle, Marlow

Jane from Erna Low

"We love these apartments in Avoriaz too Christelle, they are slightly larger as they were only opened a few years ago hence the location and the walk to the resort centre.\nKind regards,\nJane Bolton.\nManaging Director.



"Very high quality apartment with ample space that sets them apart from the older style of French properties where you literally couldn't swing a cat. Good location close to car parks, although this then leaves a bit of a trek into the centre of town, but that's a small price to pay. Spa facilities, bars & restaurants and ski hire on site all superb, although spa can be a little busy at peak weekend times"

Masters, London

Jane from Erna Low

"Great to have a few of your photos Darren, it is a great view from the apartments.\nMany thanks,\nKind regards,\nJane Bolton.\nManaging Director






"Beautiful view, great for ski school pick-up, ski boot heaters in lockers, nice apartments. Surly staff, very narrow parking spaces, bit of a walk to the shops."

Jane from Erna Low

"Thanks for the feedback on the Amara apartments, we love these apartments too although we are concerned about your comments regarding the staff so we will pass these comments on to our partner's head office in Paris.\nKind regards,\nJane Bolton.\nManaging Director.



"Excellent location and apartment. Swimming pool was cold."
