Overview

About the property

5 bedroom luxury chalet sleeping 10 people, located 10 mins drive from Morzine

Chalet Iona is ideal for families and groups looking for a luxury retreat for their ski holiday. On the slopes of Mont d’Evian, it’s a lovely quiet location, away from the resort hustle & bustle, with breathtaking views of St Jean d’Aulps village and the Grande Terche ski area. It’s just a 5 minute drive to these pistes or 10 minutes to Ardent to access the rest of the Portes du Soleil.

Chalet Iona is a stunning 5 bedroom ski chalet that was completed in 2007. It was built and designed as a family home and is decorated and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. The chalet is laid out over 3 floors and offers spacious 5 star accommodation and breathtaking views. It’s your new home away from home in the mountains.

The large open plan living & dining area gives a vast sense of space that’s further enhanced by the floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides of the room. Light floods in and you can easily take advantage of the magnificent views. Sinking into the deep squishy sofas with a steaming hot chocolate, the toughest choice you’ll face is whether to gaze into the roaring log fire or out at the incredible mountain panorama. There’s also TV with French & English channels and WiFi.

There is a large dining area with cushioned seating for 10 people adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen is very spacious and fully equipped with all you’ll need, and beautiful granite worktops. With wood throughout and beautiful exposed beams, Chalet Iona has a traditional Alpine chalet feel, coupled with a sense of space and homeliness that is often lacking in ski accommodation.

For spring skiers and the summer holiday makers, the chalet has a large sun deck which opens off the kitchen, and balconies which wrap around the chalet. This is the perfect spot for an après-ski glass of bubbly admiring the magnificent views over the valley and of the surrounding mountains. As the chalet has a south facing elevated position, it benefits from sunshine well into the evening in the summer months.

There are 5 beautifully decorated bedrooms, all en-suite, which can sleep up to 11 people. There’s plenty of storage space, and some even have comfy armchairs.

On the ground floor you’ll find a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom & a twin bedroom with ensuite shower room. There is also a large double room with ensuite bathroom on the first floor that has direct access to the sun deck. On the second floor, is a large triple bedroom with ensuite bathroom and also the master double bedroom with a south facing balcony and large ensuite bathroom.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A beautiful chalet, in an amazing setting! The effort you have put in to make this a beautiful home. We have had a fabulous week and would definately recommend the white water rafting, Lac Montriond and a trip up to Avoriaz....the views are amazing!

Lovely Chalet Iona

  • 5 of 5

The only thing not perfect about this chalet is that it does not belong to us!

Everything about it is second to none from the beautiful aspect, to the stunning design, well appointed kitchen, open plan living area with stunning views across the mountains.

The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable with lovely en-suites and in the case of the master, a fabulous walk in shower and vast bath.

We were a group of 11 - 2 families and a couple. Access to the slopes was arranged via a shuttle bus. Nobody wanted to leave this chalet to go home! And the upshot of what was pronounced "the best ski holiday ever" is that we have been totally spoiled.

Chalet Iona

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully appointed chalet in a quiet location with magnificent views. The struggle up the hill is more than made up for by the setting and the quiet. The skiers amongst us were happy to go off to Ardent everyday (15 minutes by car, free parking), where they could access the whole of the Portes du Soleil while others could walk, drive into Morzine, or just enjoy the space and quiet at the chalet. Everything is nicely fitted, the beds are comfortable and it feels more like a home than a rental chalet. This was our second visit and I have no doubt we will be back for more.

Beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of 11, stayed one week in Chalet Iona. The chalet is beautiful. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, cosy fireplace, good kitchen, very comfortable beds with good quality linen and towels. The chalet is in a good central location to reach various starting points for the Portes du Soleil area within about 20 minutes. You do need a car and when there is fresh snow you need to put the chains on, although the road does get cleared quite quickly. The Carrefour supermarket is close by and stocks everything you need if you opt for the self catered option which we did. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would certainly recommend this chalet.

Comme à la maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 10 jours superbes nous nous sommes sentis chez nous tout de suite le chalet est très agréable et conforme aux photos. Chaque chambre est vraiment indépendante avec toilette et Salle de bain et les parties communes spacieuses et fonctionnelles. L accueil a était très chaleureux rien a redire sur les prestations excepté peut être la machine à café qui est encore à filtre 😝 une machine expresso aurait été le bienvenu. Nous reviendrons sûrement l année prochaine 🤗
