Restored from a traditional 19th century farmhouse, This chalet has been transformed into a beautiful luxury ski chalet with rustic charm. The open plan living space has big comfy sofas to sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding forest with a feature open-fire place in the centre adding a welcoming cosiness on cold winter evenings.
This Morzine chalet sleeps up to 16 guests, so its a great place for a group ski holiday. Eight bedrooms all boast en-suite bathrooms, with six of these being standard twin/double rooms. In the eaves of the chalet youll find the master suite with large en-suite bathroom including Jacuzzi tub, and for those seeking a little more privacy, theres the renovated barn next to the main chalet which sleeps two in a twin room.
On the ground floor, where the old stable used to be, youll find a small bar with a DVD Player and a seating area to relax with a drink or snuggle down and watch a film on a blizzardy day.
Location and skiing
The chalet sits in the picturesque hamlet of Le Lavanchy, directly between Morzine and the Ardent ski lifts. The quiet location means you get to experience the peace and intimacy of a proper mountain chalet whilst being within easy reach of the lifts.
Weve arranged a complimentary shuttle to get you to the Ardent lifts each morning (probably one of the best kept secrets in Morzine meaning there are rarely queues, even on peak dates). From these lifts, you get to avoid the crowds over in Morzine and have direct access to the Linderets bowl in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area the largest internationally connected skiing region of the world.
At the end of the day you can ski back down a moderate blue (or catch the lift), and sample the après bar and restaurant at the Ardent lifts before taking our complimentary shuttle back to The Retreat.
Dining is on a catered chalet basis, meaning you will enjoy a continental-style buffet breakfast with an optional hot dish, afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks and canapés as well as a four-course evening meal with wine.
Each week there is one chalet staff night off (usually Monday or Tuesday) where your evening meal is not included. Breakfast and afternoon tea will be served as normal on this day and well be happy to make dinner reservations at a local restaurant for you. Weve also included a complimentary shuttle to and from Morzine on this evening for you.
