We have just enjoyed another fabulous holiday in the French resort of Morzine which was made really special by staying at the Chalet Spycat. Paul and Theresa were excellent hosts and really knew how to make our stay a special one. With the help of some trusty steeds in Rob and Amy we were treated to some wonderful company, excellent cooking, friendly banter and above all tip top service.
It was great that they provide the transfers from Geneva as this meant a speedy exit from the airport and a nice quick (only 1hr 15mins from the airport) journey to their chalet. By taking up the ski rental with the company they endorse we didn't need to step away from the chalet to get our skis and poles. With only a 10 minute drive to the slopes you are in the town of Morzine in no time to either ascend the Pleney lift or Super morzine. They arranged times with us beforehand on pickups and were always on time to take us weary skiers to the warmth of the Chalet. In summary, no walking around with skis and poles to get to the lifts, we were dropped off to walk straight on :-)
Every evening there was cake provided, home baked of course, as we got back from our skiing and a top cup of tea. Note - great tea served here. Time for the hot tub, a beer, the sauna, oh dear all too much, the Spycat really does spoil you which is excalty what made it a special holiday. A wonderful meal served up for all to enjoy in the evening was always a highlight along with some super French wine. Then we could retire to the lounge, enjoy the wonderful log fire and talk about our skiing exploits with all the other people staying. The lounge is so comfortable that somehow is seemed to bring the best out in everyone as it felt like a little bit of home.
We have stayed in a few of the rooms before and again this time the room are very well presented, always nice and toasty, have ensuite and are super clean. There is a great touch of having dressing gowns for everyone which you can wear when going to the hot tub or sauna. We had our little girl with us and the room fitted us all prefectly with the 3 of us sleeping together.
Morzine offers great skiing for all levels and you get the option of a huge area including Switzerland or sticking to the Morzine / Le Gets side. Either way if you stay at the Chalet Spycat then the skiing is just one element of your holiday as your be just as happy chillin out here no matter how much skiing you did.
