The Lowrie family had already skied Les Portes du Soleil area for 10 years before we decided upon Morzine. We bought this plot of land and had the chalet built to our specification by a local wooden chalet builder.

David Lowrie purchased this chalet in 2000

Wonderful views yet also close to all facilities in the town.

Very sunny ,and also a ready-made sledging field adjacent, where the wild horses graze in the summer.

EXPECTATION EXCEEDED BY FAR!

  • 5 of 5
After a week in Chalet Muguet, we couldn't be more happy!!
The description is very accurate, and were is not in reality is better than described.
The Chalet was impeccable on facilities and very clean. We all stay comfortable, never have cold, the eating system is great, very well maintained.
The communication with the owner was smooth, kind, very accurate and fast. The contact with the key keeper was also great and smooth.
Not only I would recommend to a friend, I've already pass the contacts and I will definitely come back.
The super Morzine lift to access Avoriaz / Switzerland is very close to chalet, and the Morzine lift is even closer, with the plus of skiing back to the chalet door!!
My sadness is that I only stay for a week ... next time I will stay for at least 2 weeks!!

Highly recommended!!!

SUPERB CHALET GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent 3 wonderful weeks in chalet Muguet (summer). Location was superb,5 minutes walk to centre but very peaceful position. Everything we needed was in the chalet it was like home from home. Loads of space for everyone, 10 people at one stage, ate on the terrace most nights just gazing at the mountains and lights of Morzine. The owner and key holder were always pleased to help with anything. We were all so sad to leave and can't wait to go back again!!

WONDERFUL SKIING HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Chalet Muguet provided the perfect base for a memorable skiing holiday - a very comfortable, well appointed chalet in an excellent location. The configuration worked particularly well for families holidaying together, like ourselves: the downstairs room with bunk beds was 'claimed' by the kids and the separate TV and DVD player allowed them to enjoy their own kiddie cinema!
The location was great with wonderful views and. although a 5 minute walk into the center of town, the fantastic service at Sport Hubert meant we could leave all of our skis and boots in a locker in the shop each day and stroll to and from the chalet without having to lug heavy ski equipment.
Morzine is a great place to holiday and. although we did eat out, the chalet was so comfortable and the kitchen so well equipped, we spent most evenings eating in.

David was a great source of useful information and recommendations which made our holiday all the better.

Would highly recommend this chalet.

FANTASTIC CHALET IN PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just enjoyed a fantastic 2 weeks with friends and family at Chalet Muguet. Description was spot on and this chalet provided a most enjoyable holiday. Plenty of space, very relaxing evenings in front of the log burner with exceptional views at breakfast time.
Ski in is a great way to finish the day and we only had a very short walk (2mins) above the chalet to enable us to ski down to the lifts.
The central location made shopping, eating and skiing hassle free.

We look forward to staying again with friends and family.

Well worth a visit, you won't be dissapointed.

Owner's Response: So glad your family had such a great time I do agree the views at breakfast time are very alluring, sometimes we linger longer than we should before heading to the pistes!

SKIING HOLIDAY 2011

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time in Chalet Muguet. It was cosy, homely, comfortable and very well equipped. Sarah, the lovely housekeeper, met us and made us feel very welcome,all instructions were really clear, everything was as described by David, the Chalet owner.
It was quite close to the slopes (for the children) and close to all amenities and restaurants.

Chalet Muguet was a perfect base for us for our week in Morzine; The location is perfect, right next to the slopes allowing us to ski in and out directly (at least at the start of the week when we had enough snow!)
Our arrival was perfectly organised with the keyholder immediately contactable and present when we got there. The chalet was spacious and perfectly equipped; the wi-fi was particularly appreciated by the teenagers in the party! There were only 5 of us in the party so we had loads of space to spread out.The layout was particularly helpful for this, allowing the teenagers to have some privacy...as well as the adults. The services in the chalet were excellent for hot water/boot storage/drying of ski kit etc
All arrangements were easy and efficient, with reliable contact with the owner and helpful information supplied beforehand. The recommended ski equipment shop (Hubert`s) was excellent and provided perfect service. Having seen Morzine and the surroundings, we felt we had chosen the perfect place to stay.
We would certainly recommend this chalet to any family for the perfect ski base in Morzine

Morzine has the easiest access of all the alpine resorts, located just 30km from Thonon on the shores of lake Geneva, and 25km from the A 40 AutoRoute which skirts the city of Geneva. Drive time to Geneva airport is just over one hour.

Morzine is twinned with its sister resort Avoriaz to combine the best of high alpine skiing with traditional Haute Savoie village atmosphere. It is linked with the 13 other resorts in the Portes du Soleil. creating one of the finest ski playgrounds in the world.

The Pleney Ski llift is just 5 minutes walk and the SuperMorzine ski lift in the direction of Avoriaz just 7 minutes walk from the chalet The nearest ski resort is Les Gets, but it is easily possible to lunch in a variety of Swiss or French resorts. Various types of snow sports are available, such as ski du fond , ski randonee and raquettes, skidoo hire, ice hockey & skating stadium and luge. There are plenty of local outdoor activities, shopping and night-life all within easy walking distanc

Other Activities: VTT, white water rafting, canyoning, kayaking, adventure playgrounds, summer luge, ice skating, horse, pony and sleigh rides, ice hockey, tennis, golf

Ski: This property is ski-in, being located just 200 meters from the Pleney lift, and 100 meters below the piste which returns to Morzine (subject to snow conditions). A 5 minute walk provides access to a gondola lift to Super-Morzine and Avoriaz, and buses link to all other areas in the 14-resort Portes du Soleil. There is no need to use a car in the resort, but if you wish to drive to different areas, a 15 minute journey is all it takes to reach Les Gets, Ardent(for Les Linderets), Nyon for Les Gets or the telepherique to Avoriaz.

All types of skiing and snowboard abilities are catered for in the area, with dozens of moderate pistes accessible from Pleney, more challenging off and on-piste skiing and boarding in the Avoriaz area, while long distance ski touring through combinations of the French and Swiss resorts is especially rewarding. It is perfectly acceptable to pop over to Switzerland for lunch, and on the pistes, passports are not required.
