This was our first snow holiday and we couldn’t have asked for any more. When we were booking with SKP Ski, it was clear that they had thought of everything, from (discounted) transfers and ski hire, to information on lift passes and the many slopes Port de Soleil has to offer.
From the moment we arrived, Steve and Sarah made us feel so welcome and comfortable. The bedrooms are well furnished and most have a balcony offering beautiful views of the town and main slopes. The spacious lounge/dining room, also with balcony, provides plenty of room for all guests to enjoy the Sky TV, Xbox and DVD collection.
Don’t be put off by the location of this chalet. Being situated just outside the centre of Morzine works to its advantage because of the views afforded and, with Steve always on hand to drop us off and pick us up, we had a choice of which slopes to enjoy rather than having to start at the one nearest to us if we opted for a ski-in ski-out accommodation. We went into the town a couple of times for a few late drinks and it was an easy 15-minute walk.
The home-cooked food that Sarah prepared was delicious. The choice of hot and/or cold breakfast was a perfect start for an active day. A freshly baked cake with a hot drink when we got in from the slopes was very welcome and then the canapés whetted our appetites for the evening meal, which never disappointed.
We didn’t try the sauna but can highly recommend the hot tub! Enjoying a drink while we warmed up, and allowed our muscles to recover from a hard day snowboarding, quickly became a necessary late-afternoon activity. Again, the views from the hot tub made it extra special.
We are definitely going back!!!
