Had an absolutely amazing holiday. The food was amazing and the chalet was in a good location. Another great thing about this chalet was having the hot tub and sauna to come back to after a hard days skiing.
Just back from a fantastic week in Morzine at Chalet la Pastorale. Toby and Marguerite were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble and the food was amazing! We all wanted their recipes! We ate and drank far too much - second and third helpings were a regular occurrence round the table.
The lift service was really convenient and being able to relax in the hot tub and sauna at the end of a day's skiing topped everything off perfectly. The chalet was close enough to town to walk for a meal on Toby and MG's day off and Snowy Trees arranged for a lift service that day too, so we didn't need to use the bus at any point during the week which was great.
Thanks for a great week!
Toby and Margarite looked after us very well. We all managed to eat too much and now have to go on a diet - which is a good recommendation. Big storm hit Europe whilst we were there so we were very pleased to be able to spend a non-ski day using the hot tub and playing table tennis.
We managed to ski down to within 200m of the chalet on one day but the rest of the the lift came and took us from the bar. Great time.
It’s the service. Stayed in Owen's catered chalets over the years and Pastorale lives up to his standard of excellence. The chalet has everything you need. Comfy en-suite rooms, sauna, jacuzzi, games room and roomy. Owen made sure our transfers, skis and passes were ready to go on day one. Toby and Margarite then took over. Great cooking, lovely cakes, drop off and pick ups to convenient lifts (no ski bus needed!). Really pleasant to be with but never obtrusive. Always willing to help. Thank you Snowytrees!
Thank you to Owen & Amy for a fantastic few days in Le Pastorale. Toby & Margarette, the chalet hosts, were very welcoming and did a great job of making us feel at home and kept us well fed.......The food was excellent! The rooms were lovely & chalet was warm and homely and in a great location, only a short walk into town although pick up/drop off to the slopes was provided on a daily basis.
The hot tub & sauna were a pleasant way to relax after a day on the slopes.
Would happily recommend to friends and hope to plan another visit myself in the near future!!
This was our first winter stay in Morzine...the town is beautiful when snow covered, matching our memories of summer holidays there. The chalet was a short walk from the town, but a lift was never a problem. Very quiet and peaceful, so ideal if you needed to simply kick back. The food was first class, as were the rooms. A hot tub and sauna after skiing for the day was a regular occurance for us. Wonderful! Owen and his team delivered a truely professional, yet extremely laid back holiday for our family. Would happily go back without hesitation.
Having booked late I took my adult kids (both ski and snowboard instructor qualified) to enjoy a four day break . Booked with Owen (snowytrees) and comms were superb throughout. Snowytrees service begins at GVA and continues throughout - we had lift passes, transfers etc all paid for and waiting for us on arrival - perfect !
Late arrival meant we missed the first night dinner so breads cheeses pickles etc left out for us . Food really good in chalet Pastorale ... only downside we had only 2 dinners from 4 nights due to late arrival and staff day off . Owen had let us know that the chalet staff took a day off on Tues or Weds so no real issue .
Would we return ? Yes ! Great late skiing in the area considering warm temperatures . Owen and Amy went the extra mile in arranging pick up and drop off early to get the best conditions - couldn't have asked for more.
Chalet spotless on arrival - great tv service .. really comfortable .
