AliKats Mountain Holidays - Ferme a Jules
Ranked #1 of 49 Morzine B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Having never stayed in a chalet before I suspect my expectations are now for ever set too high.
Al and Kat has got the perfect formula for easygoing, personable and attentive service-mindedness set in a near perfect chalet if in a somewhat awkward location.
Food, rooms, ambiance and so on are all top class but what truly stands out is the young, dynamic team doing just about whatever they can to make your stay as easy and pleasant as possible.
As mentioned the location could be closer to lifts, slopes and town but the chalet is where it is and the crew does everything they can to make everything accessible and pretty much manages in doing so.
I'll recommend this to anyone and am hoping to come back soon.

Hi there,
Thanks for your review - it's nice to hear such positive feedback! It's already started snowing here in Morzine so we are getting very excited about the lifts opening now.

Hopefully we'll see you soon?

A fantastic chalet run by a dynamic couple Al and Kat. The cooking is to die for and the service is top class. We had a lovely long weekend relaxing in the mountains. Set in a quiet little village very close to the ski lifts with great views down the valley. The rooms are very comfortable and the chalet has lots of space with two great roaring fires and a hot tub to chill in after a hard days work on the mountain! I could not recommend this place enough....but please don't tell everyone!!!! Olly R.

A better late than never review - Just to say Alikats was a fantastic place to stay. Rooms were lovely, the luxury of having a bath and a hot tub for those aching muscles a huge plus, and the dining first class. A lovely friendly atmosphere amongst staff and guests. You simply can't be disappointed. No - it's not ski in ski out but the 5 minute drive is no problem when you're chauffeur driven to the slopes and back. Totally unpretentious but certainly in the luxury bracket. Loved it. Would definitely return.

I had a wonderful week at the Alikats Chalet. The staff couldn't be friendlier or the rooms more comfortable, and the views are breathtaking. It's also great fun to sit down to a lovely long table at night with other guests and share remarkable 5 star meals as well as our experiences skiing, snow shoeing, and snowboarding. There's a large, comfortable sauna as well as a great hot tub with a beautiful view that one can sit in whilst enjoying an ice cold beer or glass of wine or champagne! There's also a lovely fire always lit in the large common room where you can read, have a cup o tea, or simply stare out the windows. The skiing and snowboarding as well as snowshoeing with Indy were all terrific fun. And for those who aren't too into the winter sports, there's a beautiful lake nearby where one can go for a long walk knowing they'll come back to a roaring fire and a cup of or drink of whatever they wish! There's also a dog, Murray, who welcomes everyone and is one of the loveliest border collies I've ever met! The village is a short ride away and I'd recommend this place to anyone hoping to have a wonderful holiday.

That title is no lie. Everything about this place is amazing and it's all the little extras as well as the genuinely great chalet and team that run it that make the difference. There was nothing better than getting picked up (yup, the Alikats team picked us up from the après bar every day!) and them on the short ride back having to choose between sitting in front of a roaring open fire with a cuppa and a cake stroking Murray the resident dog or grabbing some alcohol and heading to the hot tub and admiring the views. Then I need to mention the food! I've eaten at a lot of high end restaurants in London and around the world and the grub at Ferme a Jules can easily revel these places. It's a foodies heaven! Each night Kathryn prepared us an amazing 4 course dinner and it was genuinely the highlight of the day! The final thing to say about his place is that the team were amazing. They made us feel at home from day 1 and nothing was too much for them. I'll be going back to Ferme a Jules for many years coming!

Luxurious ski accomodation complete with hot tub, roaring fire and delicious food cooked and served by the lovely chalet staff.
Great fun for couples, family, friends with something for everyone (including board games for low snow days).
The chalet has a great atmosphere and dinner with the other guests was very sociable with potential to turn into a mini-house party if desired!

The only potential downside is that it is a small ride away from the slopes and the town centre. The staff were very accomodating in running shuttle buses on demand to and from the local lift, but any evening activities in the town will require a taxi ride.

All in all though a great place to stay and I would recommend.

The last week of the season so we were a little worried about lack of snow....no need, the best snowfall of the season!!!
Alikats chalet is everything you want and need for a luxury week on the slopes. Beautiful chalet, clean, spacious and stunning views (especially from the hot tub!).
The Alikats team were amazing: food was 5star and Kat catered to everyone's specific dietary needs. The team were on hand to help whenever needed and nothing was too much trouble.

Can't recommend this chalet enough, such a special week that will be difficult to beat- so I'm not going to bother trying, I've already booked again for next year!
