I have to say we were blown away by the apartment. The fire is just a great centre piece. The bedrooms were spacious with immaculate bathrooms. The range of pots/pans/general appliances made it very easy to cook dinner as we were not short for anything and the Smeg fridge is a nice touch. We enjoyed the range of board games on those evenings when we stayed in. Articulate being a particular favourite, which we regularly play at home and after a few drinks becomes hilarious. In terms of conditions – clear blue skies and above freezing temperatures made for stunning days but not stunning skiing, however we made the best of what was there and found that the top of Avoriaz was still in pretty good shape. It was also a local holiday (or so we were told) and therefore the slopes were busy and the morning lift queues (Morzine and Supermorzine) were horrible. On the 4th day we discovered Ardent. Is this the Gondola you recommend in your welcome pack? If not it should be. Never a queue and takes you to Les Lindarets from here quick access to Avoriaz and Chatel guaranteed! The Stash Park is also based there which we would still be in now if we hadn’t had to come home. All in all a great time.
We stayed at Chalet Lucie in 2010 and again this year (2011). The chalet lives up to the lovely pictures with a great open plan top floor. Good cooking facilities, a large dining table, a pool table, ample seating, large TV with DVD and Sky, and of course the WiFi, meant that an evening in was an attractive option. 4 bedrooms all en-suite and plenty of hot water, take all the hassle out of getting in on an evening and getting out on the morning. And as you can see from the photos, the general standard of the place is top notch. The chalet is a little too far out of town for walking to be a sensible option, but the bus stops are close by. Bus is good for the Morzine Slopes and for the Super Morzine lift (leading to Avoriaz). However, my preference is having my own transport. It makes shopping easy (good supermarket 3 mins drive away), eating in town (5 mins) and my preferred option for Avoriaz, driving to Les Prodains (10 mins) and catching the chair lift or cable car there. Nice run down at the end of the day straight to the bar at the bottom! The chalet has plenty of its own parking complete with a large car port.The chalet was great last year so we decided to return this year only to find it had new owners. They have made some small but extremely useful changes. The garage is now fitted out as a ski/board and boot room. This had been a miss the year before. There is a key system that means if your group splits up theres never any issues with organising whos got the key etc. Extra coat hangers in the hall. Little things that all help to make the holiday enjoyable and hassle free. Lastly but not least, dealing with the owners was an absolute pleasure. They proved to be both flexible and helpful and I get the impression that they are interested in making your holiday fun. If youre looking at Morzine and you want a chalet sleeping around the 8 mark, I would put this one top of your list.
We stayed for two weeks in this lovely home. Its situated in a wooded valley 10 minutes away from Morzine by car (free parking throughout the region, which was a bonus). Unfortunately no mountain views, which we missed after having at last years holiday. The house was immaculate; cleaners were friendly and very helpful. Bonus of a quick clean and change of sheets/towels mid-stay; strangely enough the towels were the only things not to the same high standard as rest of house (though perfectly ok). The photos/ description on the website do the house justice. All 4 double bedrooms were en-suite with comfortable beds and good storage (loads of wooden hangers). We loved the upside-down nature of the house (bedrooms on ground floor) as this gave a really spacious, open-plan living area. High wooden ceilings with a great panorama through the large windows. It was very easy to either be together or sit quietly on ones own. Nice little seating area which gets the sun, until it disappears over the mountains. Would have liked a couple of comfy sun chairs though! Cooking facilities and equipment of a really high standard, nothing was lacking. Extensive selection of DVDs, games etc which really helped during the variable weather, also good phone and WiFi reception. Plentiful supply of hot water but be patient, it takes a little while to arrive! Lots of great adventure sports that one can do very easily, must be heaven for mountain bikers (can take bikes up all the chairlifts in the area). Something different for us was watching ice hockey games in Morzine, fabulous! Swimming pool complex good (speedos only) with a smaller indoor area. Would recommend the restaurant only pool Ive been to with champagne and steak on the menu! Very friendly staff. Great place for walking, especially enjoyed walking from St Jean DAulps to the monastery, again great food, simplistic reminiscent of its monastic days. Wide range of restaurants in Morzine ( we liked the Clin DOeil especially) but to be honest, everywhere we went was good; Plat du Jour about €12 per person. Would definitely recommend this house. The owner has been really friendly and easy to talk to, both beforehand and during our stay.- Stayed in August 2014
We stayed for a week, basing ourselves at Chalet Lucie while we skied in the area. The chalet is really conveniently located for skiing in Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz a car is needed but all are within 10-15 minutes drive. We found the chalet was well kept and very well equipped. There was lots of room for 2 families (making up 9 people) in particular upstairs in the living space. The bedrooms are downstairs and all ensuite. Theres a huge boot room (effectively a double garage) so plenty of space to get ready for the day and store bags. The chalet was clean and as described. Booking was easy and detailed and useful information was provided including restaurant recommendations. The owner responded very quickly to questions. Highly recommended.- Stayed in February 2015
We were blown away when we let ourselves into the chalet on the ground floor and then walked upstairs to the incredible open plan living area. As 2 families staying together with 6 children ranging from a baby to a 10 year old it gave us the perfect environment to keep everyone happy. Comfy beds, plenty of storage and hot showers even when several were running at once! The kids loved having their own bathrooms and even used them to shower occasionally without being asked! The kitchen was very well equipped and there were plenty of games to keep us amused. Although the property is along the valley a little from the centre of Morzine we found the location lovely. The VTT trail to Let Gets is recommended for both walking and mountainbiking- pick it up opposite the bus stop. Having stayed in central Morzine on our last visit, we found that we explored the area more this time. We used the free car park along the Route De La Plegny which is an easy walk either into town or down to the river where you can find Indiana Parc for high ropes, pony rides or continue on to the swimming pool. Loved LEtale restaurant in town. Thank you to Peter for his prompt replies to our queries and the fulsome information sent before our arrival. We hope to use Chalet Lucie again in the near future to explore this beautiful part of the world some more.- Stayed in August 2015
