Apartment Rufus

Apartment Rufus is a large chalet style ground floor apartment ideally situated a minute’s walk from the telecabine at la Grande Terche, the ski resort of St Jean d’Aulps. It is even possible to ski back to the apartment when snow conditions allow. St Jean Station is an excellent resort for beginners & families, with a large nursery slope area and ski school at the top of the telecabine. For those wishing more extensive skiing, access to Avoriaz via the Ardent telecabine is only a 15 minute drive and Morzine is a 10 minute drive from the apartment.

The apartment was originally a restaurant and was completely renovated in 2012. It is light and spacious and provides ideal accommodation for 2 families sharing.

Entrance to the apartment is via the front porch, complete with ski racks for storing your skis. A boot rack is located just inside the front door. The entrance hall leads to the large living/dining area which has a light and airy feel due to the large French windows overlooking the garden at the front of the property.

There are several comfy sofas arranged around the log burner, ideal for relaxing in after a hard day on the slopes. There is also a dining table with chairs for 10 people. The large kitchen is just down the hallway from the dining area and is fully equipped with all the modern electrical appliances, electric hob, cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher etc.


The master bedroom leads off the living room and has French windows leading out onto a private balcony at the rear of the building.

There are 3 further bedrooms along the hallway past the kitchen. The second bedroom can be either made up as a double or a twin bedroom. The third bedroom is ideal for children sharing as it has 2 sets of bunkbeds, and the fourth bedroom has a set of bunkbeds with a pullout single underneath.

All the bedrooms are ensuite with either baths & showers or showers only. They are all well equipped with heated towel rails and the bedrooms all have ample storage and hanging space.

There is also laundry room complete with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Outside the apartment, there is a large sun terrace and beautiful garden which is ideal for outdoor dining in the summer months and plenty big enough for the kids to play in and build snowmen in the winter months.  There is parking for one car in the parking bay adjacent to the garden and additional spaces in the communal car park opposite.

After recently returning from this chalet, i can say 100% that we will be returning next year for sure!! Im already looking at the website and checking dates! The chalet itself is lovely and spacious and plenty of room for the 8 of us that was staying. It felt just like home after a long day on the slopes each day. 

Jo was lovely and met us on arrival and showed us all the things we needed to know for the week, which was great.  Barney Walters

January 2014

Our party consisted of 2 families of 5, 4 adults 6 teenagers. Every bedroom had an ensuite which made showering etc easy. Shops were a few minutes walk away. Could ski from village which we did once. Driving to other resorts was easy and range of skiing excellent. Jo was extremely helpful and we felt we could contact her if required. Apartment was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and beds comfortable. Birch Family
