This was our 2nd trip to the Au Coin du Feu - and we were just as impressed, actually more so than last year, for a number of reasons.
The danger with returning to a previously visited chalet/hotel is that sometimes things aren't quite as you remembered; perhaps the accommodation is starting to look a little 'tired', maybe the food isn't quite as good, perhaps the seasonal staff aren't quite as switched on as last year and so on..... I'm pleased to report that none of these were true !!! In fact, the food was just as good if not better, we comfortably fitted 2 adults and a 7 year old child in our room and the service & staff were fantastic (more of which below).
From the skiing perspective, even though the 2010/11 snow conditions weren't the best on record (I had a mate staying over in Courchevel the same week and it was worse over there), you could still ski down the home run to within 100m of the back door, even though it was mid-April !
Unfortunately our holiday took a turn for the worse when my partner was the victim of a bad skiing accident (broken leg) up in Avoriaz mid-way through the week. From that point on, ALL of the staff (as well as the owners Paul & Francesca) went out of their way and above & beyond the call of duty to offer help & assistance, including practical, emotional & logistical support. We were so unbelievably grateful and cannot thank them enough. Their actions prevented an unfortunate accident turning into a complete nightmare.
We will definitely be back !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chilly Powder is a hotel but with the personal touches of a chalet. We have been operating ski chalet holidays of excellence since 1995. The genuine ski to the door location of our 3 luxury catered chalets with unrivalled in-house childcare facilities sets us apart from other ski chalets in Morzine.The pistes from Morzine Avoriaz descend straight into the garden and the main cable car opposite the chalet takes you to the heart of the Morzine Avoriaz skiing with the best access to the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. There are well over a hundred catered chalets in Morzine but only a handful can boast ski to the door locations. With all en-suite bedrooms, outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, massage and in-house childcare in our crèche, the chalet is absolutely unique in Morzine for small or large groups or families with children or babies. The truly excellent cuisine, friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere of the chalet make it the perfect holiday destination and for our many returning guests it is considered a real home from home. ... more less
