Firstly apologies to Steve and Linsdey for not writing my review earlier. My stay at Amuse Bouche in March of this year was all the previous reviews had led me to believe. On arrival we were warmly greated and shown around the chalet which has great views from all aspects. Steve and Lindsey have left nothing to chance. From a choice of pillows, an english socket, bathrobes and slippers in the bedrooms to a beautifully appointed dining and lounge area for guests not forgeting the games room with tv and games consoles, indoor sauna and outside hot tub! Most welcome after a days skiing. The cleanliness of the whole chalet including the kitchen area (which is on view to guests) is first class. I was returning to skiing after some time and found the choice of skiiing in the surrounding areas very extensive with a variety of runs to suit all levels. The location of the chalet is very well suited to serve Morzine itself, Les Gets and Avoriaz. Steve is most charming and will arrange transport in the morning to whichever lift one wishes to start from and then pickup again in the afternoon at the same place or from wherever one might be heading. In the morning my skis were ready in the van to take off to the slopes and each evening returned to the store for me. I felt like a real lady! On to the food - Lindsey's cakes in the afternoon and amuse bouche in the evening before dinner were scrumptious! The breakfast took me through the day and the evening meals were on par with dining in a first class restaurant. Whilst we were on this occassion visiting for a ski holiday we did use the swimming pool facilities in Morzine which were very good and in the summer would also have the benefit of an outside pool and tennis courts. There are lovely walks through the countryside with picnic facilities and lots of opportunities for uphill cycling! I can only say if you book at this chalet I am sure you will not be disappointed with the standard of accommodation, culinary expertise, skiing facilities and your hosts Steve and Lindsey. Many thanks to both of them for a fabulous and delicious holiday which has left me wanting more.
