The lounge area also has additional generous storage and shelving. Large light sliding doors lead out onto the terrace.
The large private terrace is about 10m2 and includes a good sized table and patio furniture for al fresco dining.

The large stylish bathroom has a shower with glass enclosure, plenty of storage under the designer basin for guest toiletries plus a toilet. The bathroom also comes with the added luxury of it's own full sized automatic washer/dryer machine. There is a good sized entrance hall with a useful bench on which to sit whilst putting on outdoor boots or shoes.

The rates below are for the apartment rental, per week, and include utilities, heating, wifi and use of the private garage space but not the final cleaning charge.

Payment can either be in euros or pounds by bank transfer. You may also pay in pounds, euros or US dollars using our online payment facility which accepts both credit and debit cards.
The apartment is in a very good location and the ski lift is just behind. Having never skied before it was great to be able to use the ski lift to go up into the mountains and experience the mountain walks.
We saw lots of mountain bikers using the ski lifts with their bikes and then riding their bikes down the mountain course at speed.
The apartment is a very good base to explore the surrounding area; we hired bikes and cycled along the Isere River. We visited Annecy and the medieval city.
It was a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend the apartment for skiing in the winter or summer holidays."
We hope to return very soon."
This luxury spacious apartment, which is less than a 2 minute walk from the village centre and the chair lift, is an ideal base for exploring the mountains and making use of the many activities on offer in and around Doucy.
It is extremely well furnished and is equipped to a high standard, with comfortable beds, plenty of good storage and spectacular views from the terrace! The facilities in the village are great, and within minutes, you can be on your way up these beautiful mountains ~ walking or cycling!
I would highly recommend this apartment, and although I'm not a skier myself, I can imagine it would be just as perfect for a winter skiing holiday too!"
Idéalement situé, à 100m de la place principale de Doucy."
The ski resort of Valmorel & adjoining Saint-François-Longchamp offers a great mix of skiing. We had lots of fresh off-piste, open snow parks, challenging Black runs, fun Red runs and easy going Blue and Green runs lower down. I always came back with a smile on my face keen to explore more the next day.
I really enjoyed my stay & looking forward to coming back!"
What a lovely fresh and modern apartment everything looked and felt so new. We had a great time making the most of the region from Bourge St Maurice (also managed to catch the towns farmers and local produce and craft market day...wow) and Valmorel. Using the funicular and chairlifts we would get to both summits then spending all day wandering happily down.
To hiring electric bikes(very friendly and lovely)."
Very pleased to hear you enjoyed the apartment and the area - sounds as though you managed to find a huge variety of summer activities close by.
Hope to welcome you back another time
Le seul petit bémol est sa situation dans l'immeuble. Il est à côté de l'accès aux pistes
Donc un peu bruyant...."
Nous avons passé un séjour d une semaine très agréable, il faut dire que le temps était de la partie. La neige aussi. L'appartement est un trois pièces très bien équipé, tout y est même une petite touche de deco Ainsi qu'une terrasse utilisable même en hiver. La vue offre un panorama global des montagnes environnantes, L'immeuble est neuf et moins bruyant que les locations habituelles. Un parking vient parfaire cette location. Les contacts avec la propriétaire ce sont très bien passé. En conclusion nous ne manquerons pas de recontacter cette personne. Très cordialement."
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. The mountain biking and enduro around the village is fabulous! Hope to welcome you back another time.
Two weeks ago I travelled to Doucy from England for a biking adventure holiday to see what else the Alps had to offer besides Morzine. Having set off very early we drove a fully loaded van from the UK and managed to reach Aire De Montagne in time to prep our bikes and have an evening sunset meal on the balcony. If you’re coming from the UK I’d definitely recommend driving with mates and getting another driver insured. Even with taking the Eurotunnel it’s much cheaper than flying and the drive was relatively easy. We were very happy with the accommodation on arrival. The flat is very modern and has everything you would want, including one of the best showers I’ve ever had and incredible balcony views. We stuffed our faces with cheese and wine every evening watching the sun go down and ate fresh croissants and pain au chocolat in the mornings before heading out to ride. We arrived in Doucy without much prior knowledge of the riding on offer but we were not disappointed! The lift from Doucy gave us access to fun enduro trails and the nearby skiing village of Valmorel has a growing DH bike park with 25K of trials accessible by lift pass. You can also ride any of the numerous hiking trails back down to the village which are also great fun. It takes about 15 minutes to drive the winding roads to Valmorel from the apartment but you can also cycle in about 30 minutes if you feel like riding. A week’s lift pass is only £70 which is a steal considering you have so much mountain decent at your disposal. The trails themselves are well built and have good flow to them. If you like smashing burms there is a Red graded run that must have over 50 switchbacks which will put your cornering abilities to the test! After a days riding you can take a chairlift up to ride down a mountain ridge back to Doucy. If you fancy riding some hiking trails you can get almost 1km of vertical decent down to the base of the mountain from Doucy. We used the van to shuttle the riders back to the top but we heard from a local tour guide that you can get on free buses back up the mountain. In summary, we really enjoyed our time in Doucy. The place has such a relaxing atmosphere and plenty of riding to keep you entertained for the week. I will be returning at some point in the future!"
Great to hear you enjoyed the trails around Doucy. Enduro is a growing sport and Doucy/Valmorel is a forward looking commune continuing to develop what is on offer. We look forward to welcoming you back another time!
We quite agree that Doucy is a hidden gem surrounded by fabulous walking and with everything you need for a lovely family holiday! Hope to welcome you back again.
Nous nous sommes rendu avec ma famille dans cet appartement pour une semaine. Nous étions cinq et avons trouvé l'appartement spacieux et surtout très bien équipé (il y a tout ce dont vous avez besoin!). C'était la première fois que nous nous rendions sur ce domaine skiable et nous avons été agréablement surpris. L'accès aux pistes est à 2 minutes a pied de l'appartement et le domaine Skiable est grand et offre pleins de possibilités en terme de niveau de pistes mais aussi pour partir sur la journée explorer. Le village de Doucy est très charmant et a tout ce dont vous pourrez avoir besoin: petite épicerie, boulangerie, magasins de ski/location, restaurants et surtout la vue de l'appartement sur la vallée est absolument magnifique. En résumé je recommande donc cet appartement pour un séjour bien agréable situé dans un domaine skiable très appréciable. Nous pensons également nous rendre là-bas pendant l’été afin d’explorer la région sous un nouveau paysage et de profiter des multiples activités possibles."
Nous sommes très heureux que vous avez aimé votre séjour et avons trouvé tout ce beau et propre ! Nous serions très heureux de vous accueillir de nouveau pour un autre séjour. cordialement
We have just returned from a wonderful, family skiing holiday and found Aire de Montagne to be the perfect base for our week. It is a beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished, spacious apartment. It is warm and very well equipped throughout. Comfortable beds, a lovely bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and beautiful views. Add in free wifi, private indoor parking, a ski locker and boot dryer and it is difficult to think of anything extra that would be needed. Doucy-Combelouviere is a pretty, friendly, small resort with a good range of restaurants, shops and ski hire centres, with a range of facilities for all ages available. The apartment is a very short walk from the chair lift which takes you to the Grand Domaine ski area, providing a great range of pistes, with plenty of runs for all abilities of skiers and snowboarders. Most of the slopes were quiet even though it was half term and there is a lovely long green piste back to Doucy-Combelouviere, which is a picturesque way to finish a session on the slopes! The area is so lovely and with such a gorgeous apartment available, we look forward to returning in the summer to experience the biking and walking opportunities here."
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay - we work hard to try and make the apartment as special as is possible. Look forward to welcoming you back in the summer.
