We stayed as a group of 6 mountain bikers in July 2012. The chalet was beautiful and would have been very comfortable with twice as many people. The downstairs boiler room was brilliant as we were unlucky enough to ride in the rain a few times but all of our kit was dry by the following day and it provided a secure area for the bikes. Open plan lounge/dining room and kitchen were huge and really gave plenty of opportunity for relaxation. Excellent wifi internet throughout the chalet. The hot tub got used everyday and was big enough to get everybody in- there is also a sauna on the ground floor. All of the rooms have ensuites.
The chalet is very close to the cable car up to Avoriaz but this was closed during our stay because of damage from building a new one. Morzine is a drive down the mountain- less than 10 minutes to the centre.
Only one problem when we were there- the burglar alarm went off a few times during the first night but this was fixed the following day and a bottle of champagne brought round for the inconvenience- a lovely touch.
In summary I would thoroughly recommend this as a base for a mountain bike/ walking holiday. Owners are friendly, chalet is huge and in a beautiful very quiet location
