Ski/Summer Apartment in Bozel, near Champagny en Vanoise and Courchevel, Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Centrally Located In The Traditional French Village Of Bozel
About Vanessa Pinkney
We are a family living in England who love skiing. We had always dreamt of owning a mountain property in France and in 2009 we realised our dream. We chose the 3 Valleys area as we had enjoyed many happy ski holidays here and knew that it offered many kilometres of varied pistes to suit all levels. Our children have learnt to ski here and are now better than us! We enjoy visiting the apartment as often as we can during the ski season but also in the summer when we can walk and swim surrounded by beautiful Alpine scenery.
Vanessa Pinkney purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Vanessa Pinkney chose Bozel
We fell in love with Bozel as it is a year round working French village rather than a "ski station" which would only be active in the winter and be dead in the summer. Bozel has every amenity to cater for a winter or summer holiday - supermarkets, shops, eateries, patisseries, butchers, ski hire and clothing. These are all within walking distance. For trips further afield there is Champagny-Le-Haut (20 minutes drive) for mountain walks and a refuge offering delicious meals. There are also outdoor pools at Champangny and Pralognan.
What makes this Apartment unique
We find that we really unwind once we hit the mountains. Our favourite thing is to sit around the log burner with a vin chaud after a hard day on the pistes. In the summer we sit on the balcony with a coffee and watch village life.

Lovely well equipped convenient and comfortable
A lovely apartment. Well equipped and convenient for the shops and as a location to pursue all the usual alpine activities.
Great location, lovely lodge, perfect family break!
We visited Bozel to attend a wedding at La Tania. Two families stayed and there was plenty of space for us all, good facilities and the lodge was well equipped for our requirements. Bozel is a lovely place, we had cars so we’re able to explore the other local villages. The weather was beautiful (a couple of thunderstorms later in the day but didn’t ruin any plans). We would definitely recommend the lodge.
A lovely home in a great location!
Thank you Vanessa for a lovely stay! Our family enjoyed your home, Bozel and the surrounding immensely. From alpine skiing at Courchevel to nordic skiing at Champagny le Haut, your home provided a really quiet, and cozy retreat after spending our days exploring. We sincerely hope to return in the future.
Hi Brent thank you for taking the time to write a review we are so pleased that you had a good stay at the apartment and hope to welcome you back another time best wishes Vanessa

Nice quality property excellent location
Thank you for the positive review Tobias we are glad that you had a good stay
Perfect home for exploring
It was perfect. The kitchen was fully stocked, including most staples (salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, sugar, etc). There were ample towels and linens. The washer/dryer worked well. Comfortable beds in spacious bedrooms. Nice bathrooms. The wifi was powerful enough to watch Netflix. The stores were just steps away. Very quiet at night. Nice view. The owners were available via phone when we couldn't figure out the wifi code (our problem). The only very minor flaw was we sometimes had to park a short distance away (no reserved parking). We hope to stay here again.
Fantastic home from home in a beautiful location
The owner was extremely welcoming providing comprehensive information prior to our stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean. The beds were made up on arrival which was nice after travelling. The accommodation is a true home from home-beautifully decorated with a very well equipped kitchen and modern appliances.
Bozel was a great summer base. We took road bikes for which there was secure bike storage and also walked, white water rafted and ate a lot! We hope we will visit again.

Bozel is a lovely traditional village at the foot of Courchevel, with a handful of restaurants, a couple of good bars; 2 supermarkets, a butchers, 2 bakers, various gift shops, banks/ATM's, ski & mountain bike hire.
Being out of resort means that ski equipment hire/food/drinks are significantly cheaper, however it is easy to drive up the mountain to the larger resorts of Le Praz, 1650 and 1850 for dinner and apres ski. Alternatively, order a take away pizza and settle down for a cosy evening in front of the fire.
