“Wonderful Short Break”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Wonderful chalet with everything you'd want. Thoroughly enjoyable stay. Dave and Steffi terrific hosts and full of good advice. Olly and Kat looked after us really well daily and could not do enough for us. Food out of this world.

We returned to Apartment Joran for the third time and its as lovely as ever - we can't imagine staying anywhere else in Morzine! We feel completely at home in the apartment and we just picked up from where we left off last year!

Dave & Steffi are great hosts, along with their staff Olly & Kat, they made sure we had everything we needed for a great holiday. From the moment we arrived, everything was taken care of - lift passes & ski hire arranged, fabulous food & drink, and lifts to the resort all delivered with a smile. It feels like we're staying with friends!

The great ski area keeps us coming back for more; we explored more of the region this time too which was great and have added some more runs to our list of favourites.

Thanks again guys for another fab holiday - see you all next year!

Usually when we go for a winter break the accomodation isn't a high priority but this time we decided to go for a catered chalet, and ski for the first time in Morzine and therefore Port Du Soleil. The skiing was great and this time we got to come back to an amazing chalet where we were very well fed by fantastic cooking courtesy of Olly & Kat. The Chicken Pie Olly made on the Wednesday i think it was, was absolutely delicious. We got freshly baked croissants for breakfast and a different cake everyday upon our return from the slopes. Dave and Steffi were also fantastic with Dave giving us a great tour of the mountains on one of our days on the slopes. The sauna and jacuzzi were frequently used and felt great. I can't recommend this place enough and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, 2 of which have a mezzanine above the beds, so it depends how many of yo...

Probably the greatest ski chalet in the world.
We had an amazing week over new year staying in chalet Joran. Dave and Steffi have got everything so right and we honestly could not fault a single thing. They are such welcoming and obliging people, nothing was too much trouble. It became quickly clear that they have employed the best of the best in their staff- the amazing Kat and Olly. Those two(aided of course by Dave and Steffi) provided an immaculate chalet, transport to and from lifts whenever we needed, michelin star quality three course evening meals, breakfasts and even afternoon teas- different homemade cake every day (Mary Berry has nothing on them)
There was a fantastic sauna and outdoor hot tub ready to use anytime, roaring log fire and our hosts even joined in(and excelled at) our evening games.
You could not wish for anything more in a ski holiday, the absolute complete package. Anyone reading this review- book now! you won't regret it
Thank you so very much for giving us the holiday of a lifetime guys,
Stu and Rachelle

We booked this apartment through owners direct after a reccomendation of this site from a friend. Having been to the alps several times before, the chalet and apartment jumped out of us from the images on the site. It looked beautifully presented and seemed an obvious choice to start making enquiries.
The whole process of booking was easy. Email communication with the owners Steffi and Dave was really easy.....they responded quickly every time and before long things were booked. Again several emails were responded to very quickly when we requested information and financial transactions were easy too.
Upon arrival we were met at the apartment within 10 minutes and shown round by Steffi who was very pleasant.

The apartment was just as lovely as the photos. Very well presented, had everything you need and finished to a high standard. Little touches like quality appliances, a sauna, dressing gowns, apple TV, iPod docks etc just added to the feel of something a bit more special than the usual self catering accommodation.

We found the apartment an ideal base for a stay in the alps. Morzine is a lively resort with lots to do, easy access from the UK and the apartment is in an ideal location in the resort, about a 20 minute walk to the centre.

We had a fantastic time in Morzine and would thoroughly reccomendation the resort and accommodation to anyone. In the 10 days we were there, we mountain biked, took cable cars up the mountains and walked, sunbathed and swam in the fabulous 50m outdoor pool, visited lake Geneva, went kayaking on lac Montriond, went ice skating, did one of the tour de France climbs, watched a cycle race and visited several other resorts in the area.
The "multipass" is fantastic value and I would reccomendation this to anyone. We also took a trip to Cirque du fer a cheval which was one of the most stunning places we have ever visited and well worth the journey.

All in all, we could not recommend this apartment enough!
Thank you!

I had recently stayed during the last week in June for passport du soleil. The standard of accommodation was very comfortable indeed, and for those wanting to indulge further, was the open air jacuzzi and also a sauna in the basement!

The catering was second to none, dave was an attentive host and delivered on all counts: the food was great, wide variety of brekkie and also cakes and coffee in the afternoon and rather impressive evening meals, all added up to a great fun, great value week away.

The standard of attentive catering really made the week perfect. Would love to visit in winter!

I felt completely at home during my stay with Alpine Highs - like staying with a friend. A friend that cooks great dinners and bakes!! This is all the more important to me as I have gluten intolerance that means catering for me is not straight forward especially when the rest of the party are 'normal' eaters. Needless to say, Dave coped very well.
As for the chalet: Spacious and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean! Bedding lovely and fresh. Lots of facilities, as mentioned by other reviewers, Plus a bike stand tools etc. Did I mention clean? :-)
