“A fantastic time had by the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2011

We stayed in Chalet Madeleine over February half term. The quality of the chalet, Simply Morzine service and chalet/resort staff really was second to none. There were 7 young children in our group, all of whom really enjoyed the holiday from start to finish. Simply Morzine really went the extra mile in making our lives as easy as possible, from providing lifts around the resort to cooking amazing food and fantastic kids' teas. We came home with various recipes for our own future reference thanks to Laura our amazing chef. Cleanliness of the chalet was of a very high standard compared to other chalets we've stayed in. I would definitely recommend Simply Morzine for a fantastic family skiing holiday.

Our extended family arrived on, day after Christmas, to spend a week as guests of Simply Morzine and Chalet Madeline.We had been to Morzine on a few previous occassions, again staying in catered chalets, so we are in a very good position to make comparisons. Traditional chalet, gingham curtins, cushions, carved timbers, and vast roaring fires. As a concession to modernity, rooms are all ensuite, large tv with all channels, dvd player, sauna etc.!! located on the edge of the village, it takes 15 minutes to walk to the ski shop, from where you can access the piste to take you to the lifts.
The return walk takes 20 mins., as the gradient back up the hill tends to slow you down a tad. However, that is all academic, as the Simply Morzine drivers insist on driving you everywhere. Alternatively, you can ski down from the piste to the back door of the chalet, and ski out again the following morning. So to the food, always a crucial element to any ski holiday. What can I say ... it was creative, diverse, beautifully presented, and cooked with both passion and panache! (I own a food company where we design gourmet food dishes, so I know a little of haut cuisine)
So, hats off to Laura, our beautiful and competant chef for the week. What food was to Laura, housekeeping was to Mims, as she tended to our every need in the role of a surrogate 'Mammy'. The third member of our team was Ed, who organised all the logistical stuff, and also brought us guiding during the week. It is such a pleasure to simply follow someone who knows the mountain so well, without having to consult the piste map every time you come to a lift. Ed also covers the airport transfers and delivers the welcome introduction. You all impressed us with your enthusiasm, sense of humour, and committment to delivering a superb customer service.
Bee (the general manager) also came to check that all was well, and was genuinely interested in our comments and levels of satisfaction.
In conclusion, Simply Morzine is fortunate to have such dedicated people as it's ambassadors, and again thanks to one and all including all the other staff we interacted with during the week. Enjoy the rest of the season!
Regards,
Don and family

We're home dreaming of what's going on in Morzine...wondering if the other guests are having as much fun as we did....thinking of what a great trip and way to bring in the New Year. Eight out of the 12 of us from the United States were skiing in Morzine-Avoriaz for the first time. It was everything and more than what we expected.

The chalet was always warm and welcoming with scents of dinner being prepared by our terrific chef Chris. The food that he prepared was absolutely devine. His 3 course meal selections were incredible. Chris was a fabulous cook and a super cool guy. The house was always tidy when we'd come back from our day on the slopes or in the town shopping and exploring the restaurants. Bobby was sure to make it just right for everyone. She was multitalented in being a server at dinner time. She was as cute as button with her glowing personality. Ryan, our go to guy was right on top of things when we were interested in scheduling transportation, ski lessons, and more. His personality is huge and contagious. "The Madeleine Three" just can't be beat. They worked well together to make our vacation the best ever.

We had a dry sauna which many used....but boy would it have been nice to sit out in a Hot Tub under the stars with snow falling......You guys have the perfect place for one out that back corner on the deck.....

Thank you for making our trip one we'll always remember. We'd love to continue the tradition and return on a year to year basis....it was that good!

This was my second stay with Simply Morzine and about the sixth stay for the rest of my family. Last year I stayed at the Hotel Chaumiere (strongly recommended also, always a warm welcome from the staff). Last week we stayed at the Chalet Meadeleine which was superbly catered with excellent meals cooked by the enthusiatic Sam. Snow was excellent, the Simply Morzine staff always arriving with the mini -bus early each morning to drop us off at the base of whichever piste we wanted, and running a shuttle service at the end of the afternoon from the centre of Morzine back to the chalet. The ski guiding given by the Simply Morzine staff is particularly recommended! The views from the chalet are stunning as well!

This was our third stay with Simply Morzine and the first at the Madeleine - having previously stayed at the Chalet Montagne and Hotel Chaumiere.
As in previous years, this trip epitomised everything about a hastle free holiday experience. "Simply" do go well out of their way to ensure that everything is as it should be for you to enjoy an exhilerating holiday in the mountains, from the shuttle service, arranging ski passes and lessons, to the excellent staff who really do care that you have a great time.
Sam the chef is superb and cooked fantastic meals for kids and adults alike - sorry Sam, never did get the recipe for the chocolate torte off you!!
Esme made sure that the rooms and the chalet are spotless, cosy and comfortable - can't remember the last time I saw somebody work so hard!
Chris and Vincent even did a bit too !! Thanks guys for the great guiding, sledging (never done a red run on a plastic sledge before - exhilerating), night skiing and quad biking. All added up to another unforgettable holiday - exactly how it should be.

This was our third ski-ing trip with Simply Morzine. The holiday was fantastic, we were very lucky with the weather, lots of snow and blue skies - great for ski-ing. In a decent snow year such as this, it was easy to ski in and out from the Chalet along an easy green run. The Simply Morzine Team were once again exceptional. Chris was our host for the week and ensured that we were looked after. The mini bus service was superb, we even called on them out of the normal hours when Chris collected us from the Super Morzine Cable Car after an exhausting day. Chris did some great guiding with the men in our group and then a separate one for the three families and adapted the route to suit the ski-ing abilities of the whole group. The chalet was perfect, Esme ensured that it was immaculate, cosy and warm. Sam our Chef was brilliant and cooked us some fabulous meals and fed the kids proper meals not the usual fish fingers and nuggarts! We also enjoyed the delicous cakes when we returned from ski-ing each day. Once again, Vincent ensured that we were looked after and even took us sledging with the rest of the Chalet Team - oh what fun! He also kindly took the men night ski-ing which was over and above his call of duty. Gareth and Mike you have a great team out there in Morzine! Thank you very much we will ensure that we promote your company whenever we can. Kind Regards the Mill Family

Thanks to all at Simply Morzine again for a faultless stay, this was our second visit to Chalet Madelaine and again all the staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a perfect stay.
Sam our chef was exeptional and has a very bright future in front of him, to look after 10 hungry men at the begining and the end of a very hard days ski-ing can be no easy job, however, both Sam and Esme excelled.
Gibbo our Chalet rep...probably one of the best, knew the region very well and took us out on a couple very good days ski-ing(he is a bit slow though!!!)
All of the above were fun to be around and we had a couple of good nights out to cement that, so thanks you guys for making it a truly great week.
Mike and Gareth were fantastic as usual and helped as plan our trip with all the help we required...which was a lot at times!!!
The chalet itself is very well kitted out and comfortable, with wireless connectivity very useful. Rooms very clean and comfortable and showers all fantastic.
You can ski to and from the door which is what we did most days....entertaining!!!
Simply Morzine also offer a minibus service FOC to run you to different ski-ing regions or to pick you up from your Apres Ski.
So to all the team at Chalet Madalaine....Simply Fantastic!!!!!
Dean and all the guys.
