This stylish chalet is set in a restored farmhouse in a hamlet dating from the early 1800s that’s inhabited by mostly local families – you’re five minutes outside Morzine and Alex will happily ferry you there and back.
Inside is contemporary and very cosy, with sheepskin rugs, underfloor heating and a vast fireplace in the living room. Alex and Tom aim for a home-from-home feel, with meals eaten together around the large table in the double-height dining room – enjoy delicious four-course dinners and hearty breakfasts with pastries, homemade granola and poached eggs. There’s a bar too, with a good selection to suit all tastes.
You’re in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, the largest ski area in the world. Spend the day on the slopes, return for a massage, a session in the outside hot tub or a game of pool, followed by an aperitif before dinner.
