3 Ensuite Bedrooms, Sleeps 7 People. Village Location And 5 Mins From Morzine.
Apartment la Ranche was newly renovated in 2014. The owners cleverly married contemporary furnishings and appliances with a cosy Alpine feel. It is on the first floor of a family house in Montriond, just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of this very pretty village with a lovely gastro-pub, restaurant and shops. The chalet is on the bus route to the Ardent télécabine, giving very easy access to the full Portes du Soleil ski area. Montriond is on the outskirts of Morzine, which is a 5 minute drive or bus ride away. It is a lovely quiet area on the much sought after sunny south side of the valley.
The bright, spacious apartment is split over 3 levels, making it feel more like a house than an apartment. Throughout Apartment la Ranche you’ll find great views over the village and the surrounding mountains.
The large open plan living area has a well-equipped fully fitted kitchen with everything you’ll need to cook up a storm during your stay. With a spacious open feel, no one will feel alienated from the group whilst cooking. The dining area seats 8 people round a modern gloss black table. The large seating area has two very comfy contemporary sofas and the underfloor heating gives a lovely cosy feel. The TV has some UK channels, a DVD player and selection of DVDs, and bluetooth speaker for music. There are also a lot of games and toys for kids. The wrap around balcony offers stunning views in all directions as you enjoy a sundowner and chat about the day’s exploits on the ski pistes!
Bedroom one is on the first floor and has large windows opening out onto a balcony and amazing views over Mont Chery. This bedroom has 2 single beds, but can also be made up as a king-size double room. It has an ensuite shower room with underfloor heating and a heated towel rail. The second bedroom is located off the lounge and also has 2 single beds that can be made up as a kingsize double bed if preferred. The ensuite shower room has underfloor heating and a heated towel rail. Bedroom three is up a small staircase off the lounge and is a family room. It has a double bed, and a built in single bed on a platform. The ensuite shower room has a heated towel rail. All rooms have ample storage, and are finished to a very high standard.
The entrance hallway has a handy space for storing ski equipment and drying wet gear.

Ideal family holiday home with lovely views
The apartment has everything needed and is well located in a quiet area within walking distance to a local shop/restaurant. Great to have three bathrooms with our teenage children. Lovely views from all around the apartment of surrounding mountains. Montriond lake is beautiful and a great place for swimming and water activities. We managed to see the incredible free fireworks on the lake while there. A great base for travelling around the area which has so much to do for teenagers. Would highly recommended the multi pass which was €2 per day per person and gave free access to cable cars, chairlifts the swimming pool at Morzine (which was beautifully kept) ice skating and more! The only slight negative is a small TV but only really needed on rainy days! Would highly recommend this apartment if planning a holiday in the area.
Thank you so much for your lovely review of Apartment la Ranche in Montriond. I ma really pleased that you and your family had a great time, and it certainly sounds like you made the most of all the activities in the area!
Thanks also for the feedback regarding the TV, we have decided to upgrade it for a larger one this autumn.
We do hope we can welcome you and your family back again soon.

Excellent apartment with perfect access to the Ardent lift.
Fantastic family friendly property
We have stayed at apartment la ranche for the past 2 summers and cannot rate it more highly.
The location is stunning and views incredible. H
Jo is a fantastic host/manager who is there is you need any help or advice.
All rooms having ensuites are so handy and the standard is top class. The children love the bedroom on the top floor with a built in raised bed.
The apartment was stocked with plenty of toys to entertain our 2 year old.
We love being able to walk to the shop for pastries in the morning and Montriond has a lovely relaxed vibe.
Morzine and Avoriaz are incredible in the summer (and winter) and there are a never ending list of activities to keep children and adults entertained.
Thank you for such a wonderful review of la Ranche! Hopefully we can welcome you back again another time.
Spacious, good standard & great location
We had an excellent stay in Montriond from the arrival where Jo came to meet us to the excellent chalet and facilities.
The chalet is very spacious and well equipped. A huge lounge dinner with amazing views in two directions and a series of bedrooms make for a very comfortable stay. We thought Morzine was beautiful and prettiest of all the alpine resorts.
We'll be back and would certainly stay with Jo again.
A & A (Hampshire)
Our family of five spent a wonderful two week Summer holiday at La Ranche, enjoying staying in Morzine and all it has to offer in the summer months. The appartment is bright, beautifully renovated, spacious and well equipped with super views from the picture windows and wrap around balcony. Having ensuite bathrooms to all of the bedrooms was an added bonus. Jo is warm and welcoming and gave us great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. We benefitted from the Multipass scheme which Jo organised for us - this enabled us to use the superb swimming pool complex in Morzine as well as the tennis courts and chair lifts at a greatly reduced price. Highlights include white water rafting along La Dranse with Nunayak Rafting, mountain biking down the ski slopes of Les Gets led by Christophe , hiking to Le Lac Vert from the Mossettes ski lift and a stunning road bike ride to Sixt Fer a Cheval. Would definitely recommend and would return at the drop of a hat!
Great apartment, nicely furnished, would recommend
We had a great stay in this apartment. Located on Montriond just on the edge of Morzine. Good location as can access lac du Montriond as well as Morzine and surrounding area. Jo, the apartment owner was extremely and provided lots of tips for our visit.
The only downside of our 10 days stay was that the beds were quite hard and we are used to much softer mattresses!
I would highly recommend this apartment.
Apartment la Ranche is located in the pretty village of Montriond, which is situated on the edge of Morzine.

It is also on the bus route to Morzine, and the Ardent telecabine for fast access to the ski area of Avoriaz.
