Riders Refuge Chalet Eterle
Ranked #41 of 146 Speciality Lodging in Morzine
Reviewed 21 February 2013

We had a fantastic week here at the end of January. The chalet is lovely and only a short walk from morzine town and the bars. Oil and Rachel were excellent hosts and chefs and treated us like kings all week. We had mixed weather but the skiing was still great, in a fantastic and varied ski area. We had good company in the chalet and would definitely return to stay with riders refuge again. Oli and Rachel may yet have to put up with us in the summer....!

Stayed in the refuge in early January and was most impressed on arrival right through until we sadly had to board the plane home!

On arrival late at night we were welcomed with bread, juice, tea and most importantly leftover Tartifilette - really nice welcome and set the tone for the rest of the week. The food was awesome throughout the week and would definitely recommend Olly's Cherry laced duck with Duck Leg Beignettes (Spelling!) to anyone.

The food was complemented by a really nice atmosphere created by Olly and Rachael making the Eterle really feel like a home away from home. Morzine itself was absolutely brilliant and we were lucky in getting a massive dump of fresh POW the night we arrived. We were out on the slopes for 9 most mornings and even managed to get out shredding a few times during the week with Olly who showed us some epic off piste run and some Stashtastic goodness.

Although the Chalet is a little bit out of town (15mins) it was never a problem as we were given lifts to our lift of choice in the morning and beer coated up on the walk home from the pub :)

Fantastic Chalet, Awesome Hosts and AMAZING week away, would definitely o recommend to anyone looking for fun in the Alps

Had a brilliant stay at Chalet Eterle. The chalet is modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The chalet is well located in Morzine, close enough to town to get to/from apres and to the Nyon lift and has a hot tub to relax the muscles after a hard day riding. Oli and Rachel really lifted the stay to an exceptional level - providing lifts to the slopes, delicious food, shred-tips and great banter. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay in Chalet Eterle to all. Fantastic!

Had an absolutely amazing time at chalet eterle. Good location for hitting town or the nyon lift and absolutely fantastic hosts. Oli and Rachel definitely added the icing on the cake to a great trip... lifts to the slopes, waited on hand and foot, the most incredible food and most importantly great company to make it feel like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Fantastic few days boarding with riders refuge, staying in chalet Eterle which is the most fantastic chalet. Oli and Rach were amazing hosts- great cake waiting for us at the end of each day on the mountain. Wonderful meals. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Jono and Jill got us sorted out so we could get out on the slopes as soon as we arrived at lunchtime.
So friendly and welcoming. A real treat to not only be boarding in the alps for a few days, but to be looked after so fantastically.

Many thanks from Helen and tom!

Riders Refuge made our first attempt at snowboarding an absolute pleasure. The whole experience was very smooth the guys organised everything for us; transfers, boots, binding and some very good boards. Not that I know anything about snowboarding boards but we got some nice comments about how good they were. Afternoon cakes, welcome home canapés and the truly great diners and breakfast from Oli and Rachael made it a special holiday. If only we could eat like that all the time.

Our shred hol was absolutely amazing thanks in a massive way to Riders Refuge and our chalet host Oli & Rachel. The two of them made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, the food was superb and Oli helped improve my shred capability with tips. Also really enjoyed the afternoon spent with them riding together with our group. Cant wait to scrape together enough cash to go back again in the spring (hopefully) :-)
