Reviewed 8 January 2014

I have just returned from another trip to Chalet Koala with a large group of friends 30 in all. Unfortunately we could not all get into the chalet but Julia the manager arranged rental of a local apartment 30 feet from the chalet, to make sure we could all be together
Great food and great accommodation again
Looking forward to going back at February half term
If you are looking for a warm friendly chalet with great staff and great food and next to the slopes of Porte du soleil then this is one for you

Room Tip: All rooms are great

This was the first time that we had visited Koala with our 9 year old son and 12 year old daughter. Stayed for 10 days during August 2013. Setting beautiful. Plenty of things to do within a reasonable distance although having a hire car makes it very easy. Not sure how easy it would be by bus. Julia is a great host and very helpful. Rooms tidy and comfortable. Facilities in Morzine excellent: Horse riding, parapenting (although expensive), summer luge, canoeing on Montriond, white water rafting 45mins away etc etc. Kids loved it and will probably go again. Thanks to Julia, a great host.

Me and my mom stayed at the Chalet for 2 weeks.

I came to Morzine for mountain biking and my mom mostly to relax and for hiking.
We had the luxury of having the Chalet for ourselves for the entire 2 weeks.
The beds were very cozy, lots of channels on TV, very nice breakfast and a lovely host.
Julia had been extremely helpful, gave us suggestions on how to keep ourselves busy.
The chalet is located in a very quiet area and also pretty close to the Montriond Lake, so no noise issues and at night you can hear the water flowing.

The chalet has a shed to keep the mountain bike safely, a water pipe that can be used to clean the bike and a repair station for the bike. Julia also had a bunch of bikes that can be used for commuting in the city.

The chalet is in Montriond which is about 20-25 minutes walk away from Morzine city center with all the shops, cafes etc. There is a bus station about 3-5 minutes walk away, there are about 2 buses an hour, but they stop working after 18:00, so you will most likely have to walk by foot a couple of times or ride your bike. If you are on a bike it will be a nice warmup, 5 minute ride to the SuperMorzine lift or the busses to Les Gets.

It's a pity we couldn't use the kitchen (due to insurance issues) so we had to either eat outside or sandwiches (there is a small fridge where you can keep cold meats, cheese and other stuff).

If we happen to be in the area we will definitely consider staying there again!
Thanks!

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Chalet Koala and I will definitely go again. Much as I don't usually want to go to the same place more than once. With Chalet Koala I am more than happy to make an exception. Julia always provides a really warm welcome. The food is consistently good, the rooms are comfortable and warm and you can always guarantee finding a lovely group of people staying there. New wet rooms have been installed since last year which are great. Much more room for the essential hot soak after a day on the slopes!

Just came back from an amazing time at chalet koala. The setting is beautiful and chalet koala is well situated for easy access to slopes . My room was lovely nicely decorated and clean and bed was really comfy just what I needed after a day on the slopes. The staff couldn't have been more helpful especially Julia who runs it and her cooking skills second to none. I a would definitely would recommend it and would live to go again next year , I might even try and make it in the summer .

I've stayed at Chalet Koala a few times now, and it's always a very friendly, relaxed and informal place to be. The food is good and the atmosphere is warm and cosy. The accommodation is clean and comfortable rather than luxurious. They had installed some new wet rooms since I last stayed there, and these were excellent. Chalet Koala is very conveniently located for the nearest ski lifts. I will definitely be going back.

Chalet Koala is an ideal base for a ski trip. Julia is a great host providing fabulous food with the help of Coral and Andy. I have never eaten so much! The rooms are comfortable with their own sinks and the new shower rooms are very nice. The location is a short bus ride into the busy town of Morzine - you need to get a taxi home in the evening though. We hired a car from the airport and this was great to take us to the different ski lifts in the morning. There are so many areas to ski here. Would definitely stay at Chalet Koala again x
