There’s plenty of reasons that after more than twenty years, we are still here, and why we love welcoming guests back year after year. Here is what our guests tell us are the main reason they choose Chalet Morzine over anywhere else.

The location

We are on the Pleney piste. You can ski back to the chalet, you can ski down to the Pleney cable car from the garden, you can walk into town in well under 5 minutes, you can watch skiers from the balconies. 

Our local knowledge

OK, so it’s why I chose Morzine as my forever home too, but the advantage of ski instructor and my husband Thierry for our guests is that he knows the mountains unbelievably well. He can tell you where to ski depending on the direction of the wind, and he is out there every day seeing the conditions of the pistes. Apart from potentially being your ski instructor if you book him through ESF, he can help you work out where to head each day. I help you through the booking process, and it’s me that’s got to know all the chefs, the nannies, the massage therapists, and the shops. So I can help you work through all those options too. We’re not a ski company with seasonnaires that change year-in, year-out, you know it’s us you’re getting each time so you can expect the same. 

The space

The chalet, compared to more recent builds, is huge. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, there’s a second lounge and TV room, and the kitchen has a door that closes (so if you hire a chef they can work away on their own without being in your living space until it’s time to eat).

The views

All of the bedrooms have either a balcony or a terrace, as does the kitchen. Because the chalet is slightl elevated, there are views to Avoriaz and over the town, so you are not staring at a wall from your bedroom window when you look out. Despite being here for as long as I have, I still stand and stare at the views. 

The privacy and the quiet

Despite being right in town, Chalet Morzine is on a quiet little back road. So you get none of the noise from the bars and restaurants after you have left them, no-one wondering down the road tipsy in the middle of the night, and no cars passing. Also, the chalet is sound proofed, so once you are in your room you won’t hear your immediate next door neighbour gently snoring!
