The L’Amara apartment blocks are in a very, very nice place and I really enjoyed staying there. There were a few little niggle things that weren’t very clever; what let them down was that they didn’t have enough cleaners for the change over and us and about 300 other people had to sit around for about 3 hour... + more

Overview: apartment description: L'Amara Apartments description

This modern complex of luxury apartments forms its own village of five interconnected buildings, that have heated walkways. Located in the Amara area of Avoriaz these apartments have ski in/ski out access.

The use of wood and warm colours provide an intimate feel to the apartments. The bar and lounge area is a perfect place to end your ski day. Otherwise there is a heated indoor pool, hammam and sauna to relax in. There's also a Deep Nature Spa with an outdoor hot tub offering mountain views, and massages and treatments that can be booked and paid locally.

The centre of Avoriaz can be reached by a 7 minute walk, or pay locally to indulge in a horse drawn sleigh as the resort of Avoriaz is fully pedestrianised. The property also provides a shuttle service for children to the ski school.

With lovely apartments like these you may prefer not to always go out to eat, but to take advantage of our Huski food delivery service.

"The location was really good! "

Georgina
4/ out of 5
Everything was fine and we had a good time over New Years Eve. We had 5x people in a two bedroom apartment with one of the kids sleeping in the lounge. We had no complaints and it all ran smoothly, so pretty happy with it. The location was really good, the boot room was good and we loved the access to the slopes. It was ski in/ski out and the only slight difficulty was the distance to the ski school. You had to walk uphill and then ski down and we had a little one so it was a little bit more tricky. Some of the ski schools got a horse and cart to pick them up to take them to the ski school, but our ski school didn’t do that.

"Loved them! Perfect for our family!"

We loved our apartments, had a brilliant holiday and hope to book the same for next year. For us, the location was the best thing, some families might think it’s too far but we loved how quiet it was – you couldn’t hear a pin drop in the evenings. Unless you’re a proficient skier you can’t get to ski school without getting the horse-drawn carriage. We found that delightful anyway, and by day 3 our boys were skiing well enough to manage it. If you’re walking to a restaurant, you have quite a steep hill to get up… And if you’re going to the little minimarket it’s about an 8 minute uphill walk. We didn’t mind it at all, but it might be a problem for some. Loved the actual accommodation, everything was amazing from the rooms to the bedclothes. It was like being in a hotel and an apartment, they happily changed the sheets if need be. The boys could go over to reception and get a DVD which was great. The pool was amazing as were the sauna and spa facilities. The boot room was beautifully kept and not too busy.

The L’Amara apartment blocks are in a very, very nice place and I really enjoyed staying there. There were a few little niggle things that weren’t very clever; what let them down was that they didn’t have enough cleaners for the change over and us and about 300 other people had to sit around for about 3 hours while they sorted it out. There could have been better instructions for the hob and hot plate as it took ages to get it to work (even the rep couldn’t work it out). The way all four buildings are connected is by underground passageways so you can get from your building to the main bit without going outside which is ideal if you have bad weather in the week. Our teenage kids loved it as they were all staying in another building and had to use the tunnels a lot to get around. Inside was spotless though and the overall place was brilliant, with fantastic facilities (swimming pool, steam rooms, gym). It’s ski in / ski out so getting out is really easy. There wasn’t a shop near as the place was so new, so we had to walk back into town. I wouldn’t mind betting they’ve put a shop in now as they had enough space to and it would be stupid not to.
