Luxury Chalets in Morzine

Posted on September 04, 2015 by Simon Hoskyns

The last decade has seen the arrival of many luxury chalets in Morzine but it wasn't always that way. Morzine for many centuries has been a thriving French mountain town and was certainly one of the earliest ski resorts to develop after WWII. However, until very recently it only provided the tourist market with 2 and 3 star hotels and a plethora of cheaper catered chalets. Avoriaz, which links directly to the same ski area as Morzine, had its heyday in the 70’s as a result of the film industry camping there for one of its annual showcases and award ceremonies but since the end of the 80’s it rather lost its sparkle.

We have noticed, however, that the French side of the Portes du Soleil ski domain, is suddenly seeing something of a quiet revolution, or rather evolution. The resort of Morzine has in particular seen the sudden arrival of the ‘luxury chalet’. Morzine and to some extent Les Gets have both seen the arrival of the luxury chalet. Les Gets also has the Hotel Marmotte which has really raised its game over the last 18 months and this season VIP Ski have three new smart apartment chalets in Avoriaz which is linked to Morzine on the same ski area. We also heard on the grapevine that a new lift is being planned from the centre of Morzine to the bottom of the new Prodains lift (accessing Avoriaz) which will really start to tie in that whole area much better. Skiers will be able to go from Morzine centre to the skiing in Avoriaz in under 15 minutes.

Luxury chalet Jejalp in Morzine sleeps up to 14 guests in six bedrooms. There is a ‘wellness’ area with hot tub, sauna and relax area as well as a cinema room, chauffeur service and gym. This stunning chalet is well staffed with hospitality professionals providing the finest chalet cuisine and top quality wines. The chalet is located not far from one of the main lifts of the Portes du Soleil and has an on-call driver service operating day and night should guests wish to access the resort centre of Morzine.

Some guests prefer to be out from the hustle and bustle of a busy resort like Morzine and for them Chalet Jejalp makes a fantastic choice. However, there are others that prefer to be within stumbling distance of the bars, clubs and shops – for them being nearer the action is all important. Chalet Igloo which sleeps between 8 and 11 guests is not only situated at the foot of the Pleney slopes making it possible to ski back to the chalet’s door at the end of the day but is also within an easy walk of Morzine centre. For those guests looking to make the most of Morzine’s vibrant après ski scene Chalet Igloo makes a better choice.
