Col du Corbier, Le Biot, Rhone Alpene, Frankrike

The apartment is based in Col du Corbier / Drouzin le Mont on the edge of the Portes du Soleil (one of the largest ski area’s in the world) in the French Alps, Haute Savoie, France (near the French/Swiss border) and it is just over an hour drive to Geneva airport.

Drouzin le Mont is a small villeage situated in the hamlet of the Col du Corbier. The apartment is especially suitable for groups and families - including families with babies and toddlers.

It offers a superb base for exploring the area and gives access to a wealth of outdoor pursuits all year round, such as skiing, snow boarding, hiking, walking, rock climbing (see below for more information), via ferrate, mounting biking, cycling, swimming, rafting, canoeing or hydro-speed and many many more. It is also a popular area for bikers.

Winter season:

Only minutes walk away, the Col du Corbier provides several winter activities including skiing and sledging on the beginners slope and cross country skiing for all levels.

For more advanced skiining, the Portes du Soleil, one of the largest linked ski areas in the world with over 650km of prepared pistes, is only a 10-20 minute drive away and has opportunities for all levels of skiers and snowboarders.

Portes du Soleil:
Based on the edge of the Portes du Soleil piste map, Penthouse Les Iris gives easy access to many resorts in the Portes du Soleil:
- 10/15 minute away from the old village of Abondance which also has a great nursery slope with easy ‘step on’ lift for beginners.
- 15/20 minute to St Jean D’Aulps
- 15/20 minutes La Chapelle d’Abodance
- 20 minutes to Chatel and Morzine
- 20 minutes by car from the Ardent lift.
The large car park at the Ardent lift is free (like most car parks near the main lifts) and from here you can take the 10 man telecabin up to Les Lindarets to the beginner’s slopes.
You can continue to Avoriaz, which features spectacular snowboard parks, tree lined pistes that meander through dramatic cliffs; excellent skiing and boarding for all levels and in all directions including the Swiss resorts of Les Crosets and Champery. If you choose, you can go the other way towards Morzine and Les Gets with endless opportunities for a huge range of abilities.

And there are even more resorts in the area. Please contact us if you would like to receive more information.

The ski season in the Portes du Soleil is from mid December to mid/end April depending on the snow conditions and when Easter falls.

The apartment has great views over the opposite mountain which has a great sledging area for old and young as well as many opportunities for snowshoe walking and cross country skiing. We understand that the local council will organise activities such as a sledging, dog sledges, archery and other activities with the tourist office during the French school holidays.

Summer season:

For hikers, climbers and sports lovers it is an Eldorado! Within 5 minutes you can begin the most beautiful mountain climbing expeditions in the area (in total about 20 routes). Another well-known hikers route very close to Les Iris is the Tour de Monzon, with views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. There are also special nature tours for children.

Other sports in the area include mountain biking (for the real daredevils), hang-gliding, fishing and horseback riding. Or how about the adrenaline rush of rafting, canoeing or hydro-speed?

Lake Geneva and Montriond and many other lakes are a short drive for summer tranquillity, water sports and swimming.

There is easy access to the traditional alpine town of Morzine for shopping and evening entertainment.

Rock Climbing

The Haute-Savoie boast a large number of rock climbing areas, whether for bouldering, single-pitch cragging, multi-pitch routes, big walls or ridge climbs. Near the apartment are several climbing opportunites and the cliffs of Biot will enchant the rock-climbers, as much for the beauty of the places as for the quality of the escalation.

We are an Anglo-Dutch couple who have a passion for this wonderful family friendly resort in the Rhone-Alpes. We are regular visitors to Drouzin le Mont, visiting throughout the year and enjoying the wide range of activities on offer, particularly skiing, climbing and Via Ferrata. Penthouse Les Iris was purchased off plan in August 2004 and completed in July 2007. We take real pride in the quality of our accommodation and believe there should be the space and facilities that make your holiday as stress free as possible. We have designed Penthouse Les Iris so that sleeping and living arrangements are flexible to meet the needs of different groups. Wal personally planned and built the cubbyhole and he is not surprised that children really enjoy having their own special space that is not a ‘normal’ room. Judith has strong views when it comes to cooking and feels that a fully equipped kitchen is essential when you are preparing meals for groups of more than four especially when you are on holiday. Therefore the kitchen is fully equipped to cater for up to 12 people. The dinning table can be extended to comfortably seat 12 people. There are 3 high chairs and 3 travel cots for those with small children for no extra charge available. We write regularly on our blog about what is happening in and around Drouzin le Mont and the Rhone-Alpes as we want others to enjoy the area as much as we do.
