Spacious, bags of character, amazing food, ideally located, and professionally run, this place provided the ideal base for our skiiing holiday in Les Portes Du Soliel. It's in an excellent location for the slopes, and is sat in the middle of Morzine and Les Gets so it is just a few minutes away from either. We were delivered to the slopes every day within a few minutes of booting up, collected promptly at the end of our day, and there was even a bit of flexibility if we wanted to adjust times a little. I really could write buckets about this place, as I am still on a high from such a great week away. The skiing is excellent if you haven't been to this resort before, and there truly is something for everyone. Cara the Chef and her Chalet Maid Karl are really good hosts too, their menu for the week is very very good. So much so on their night off we were happy to have take away pizza rather than eat out cos we'd felt like we'd already had restaurant standard food all week! Other highlights are the well positioned Hot Tub in the garden, spacious and well thought out rooms, well presented lounge and mezzanine area with the obligatory open fire, nice views from all aspects, a wee hill for the kids to sledge on in the garden etc etc......there's also a pool table and a darts board, although this and the drying room are a little 'basic' compared to the rest, they are still perfectly adequate. The onloy other negative i could find is that the bunks although very comfortable, are not long enough for a 6 footer, but then with the mix of rooms available (it really is quite unique the way they can create different spaces depending on the types of people) this should be avoidable. On the whole, I'd recommend this to anyone that prioritises comfort, convenience, and as much skiing as possible. The price is pretty good too!
