“Fantastic Experience - Rude made the holiday!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

I stayed at Chalet Joseph for one week at the start of April 2013 with a group of 10 friends (mixed group aged between 23-27). Having been on a few snowboarding holidays but never fully catered we were not sure what to expect but it was awesome!!

Russ was our host and Sarah the chef for the week. the food was fantastic every day - three course home cooked meal every night (examples of mains were: tarteifflet, roast pork belly, chicken pie, curry) - you will not go hungry staying with Rude! The breakfast was a good selection of cereal, eggs (cooked how you like them), yogurt, fruit ect, a good start to a day on the slope! We tended to stay out until 5.30 - 6 so ate lunch on the mountain but on returning there was always a fresh baked cake and any left overs from the evening meal before. The free wine and beer was pretty great too and the free Redbull!

Russ and Sarah were happy to help with anything and give advice on places to eat/drink in Morzine. We had a go at night sledging which was fun and only about £10 and one member of our group whet paragliding (starting off near the Zore lift from super Morzine) on the recommendation of Sarah which she LOVED!

All bar one member of our group hired equipment with Rude and it was great quality - all burton boards, boots and bindings and in top condition. One person wasn't happy with the fit of boots after the first day and Dan, the resort manager was round the next morning to change them.

We really enjoyed have Zac the Rude photographer with us for half a day, he made sure that everyone in the group, of all levels, got on the video at least for a bit. He also pointed out where some of the jumps were at the side of the slopes - I never would of spotted these with out Zac!!

The rooms were good, nice and clean and it was so good to have an en suite bathroom in each room so there was no waiting for the shower after a long day on the slopes!! We stayed on the bottom floor of the chalet where there were 5 double/twin room and a large lounge/kitchen area. on the top floor were a family with young children and a grandma - we saw them at dinner as you all sit on a long table together but as we aren't a rowdy group I think we got on pretty well.

Overall I would recommend Rude to anyone - regardless of age or group size. Everyone is made to feel welcome, the chalet is great and really well equipped and the food is sooooooooo good. I will certainly be going on holiday with Rude again without a doubt.

PS - the snow was also great considering how last in the season we went, we had fresh powder some days!!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are smaller and can be a little noisy if your at the front of the chalet but I had...

This was my second time staying with rude chalets and they did not disappoint. I had an amazing time. The chalet host Russ and chef Sarah were awesome and the food was top class. I would recommend this company to anybody such a friendly group of people who can't do enough to help.

Visited Chalet Joseph in Feb 2013 but only just got around to reviewing! Chalet is in a great position right in the middle of Morzine and close to main lifts and petit train to other big lift. Bus back from Avoriaz also drops you right outside the door - excellent.
Russ and Sarah were really friendly hosts and always helpful. Food very good and plenty of it - plus the lovely wine. Rooms are a bit basic and I have stayed in better furnished bedrooms but it was comfortable and clean. Only problem I had was that there is no internet signal on the first floor - you end up having to go upstairs if you want to log on - out all day skiing so not really a huge problem just a little niggle.
We went out on a day ski hosting which was really good fun - I would have liked to have seen a bit more video footage of the day but it was free so no complaints there.
All in all a really good ski holiday - really nice guests, everyone got along very well. Good skiing as there was tons of snow. Great.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back as they are quieter (not overlooking the main street). Top floor rooms hav...

Been ski-ing lots of times but this was the first time we had stayed in a Chalet. The location was great as was the company. Sarah and Russ worked really hard looking after us all. The food (breakfast, 3 course dinner and home baked cake every day) was delicious. Location perfect. Rooms more than adequate and spotlessly clean. Will definitely come back!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Chalet Joseph. We received a warm welcome from our hosts Russ and Sarah and very quickly felt at home. The chalets' living area provided a great space for us to socialise with the other guests and by the end of the first night we were all sitting watching tv together as if we'd known each other for years!
Sarah's cooking exceeded my expectations of a catered chalet and provided a range of different cuisines throughout the week so you don't get weighed down by a constant stream of rich French food! However the tartiflette was warmly welcomed.....
The chalet couldn't really be in a better location being a few minutes walk to the Super Morzine gondola and not much further to the Pleny gondola on the other side of the valley- enabling a huge variety of pistes to ski/board on with very easy access.
We were sad to say goodbye to the friends we had made in the Chalet at the end of the week, and Russ and Sarah who had done a wonderful job at hosting us - their hard work did not go unnoticed! If you're looking for a relaxing ski holiday with great food and a friendly environment, Rude Chalets couldn't come with a higher recommendation.

I have just come back from an amazing week at this chalet which is conveniently situated 2 minutes walk away from the Super Morzine lift and the funny little free train to the Pleney lift also stops just outside if you are too lazy to trot the 5 minutes through the town to get there! (Bus stop to Prodains right outside too)

The food at this place is awesome and although I am not a veggie or vegan some of the group that I went with were VERY well catered for too! I have learned to ask for half portions... although I might just get bigger snowboard pants for next time...as Sarah's cakes werea bit too tempting!

Rooms are very nice with ample storage and decent ensuites. There is a nice lounge with 3 big cosy sofas to sit, chat and eat cake after a tough day on the piste! The large warm boot room dries your gear out nicely for the next morning ...loads of boot warmers and places for helmets goggles and gloves saves taking them to your room.

You will LOVE this place and ALL the very helpful staff all of whose mission is to have happy customers.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED !!
