Morzine Chalet Rental Photos and Description

A luxury family chalet, calm, close to everything.

Chalet SKADI = 4 seasons of pleasure!

Perfect Location for Skiing and Nightlife

  • 5 of 5

8 of us (group of friends) stayed here for 1 week from 27 Jan 2013. We all ski together every year all around Europe and have stayed in everything from budget B&Bs to 5 star hotels. Together we all agreed that this is an amazing chalet in the perfect location in Morzine.

Positives:

1. This chalet is definitely Ski in. Take Piste B back from Pleney and drop off the run between sign 4 and 3. Ski Out requires a small hike up the field behind the chalet but only takes 2 minutes.

2. Chalet is located a 5 minutes walk (maximum) from all the restaurants and nightlife that you need.

3. Chalet was really warm all day and water was hot for showers all day when required.

4. We cooked for ourselves a couple of nights and the kitchen has all utensils / pots / pans required to cater for 8 people. Also basic supplies from previous guests are left which really helps when you are self-catering.(eg salt, sugar, coffee, oil, nutella!)

5. Chalet layout and construction. This is a well built chalet which comfortably sleeps 8 people (2 double rooms, 1 twin room and a bunk room). One of the best features was the panoramic view from the living room which has windows on all sides. The best view is of the main red slope coming back to the village which is lit up at night and you can watch the night skiing, local ski school competitions and the weekly ski demo night during your week stay. We called this our "Reality TV"

Negatives:

There were very few negatives but I feel I should mention the following:

1. One set of bath towels and bed sheets were missing when we arrived. We texted the local contact who brought them within 30 minutes. On the second day we also realised that the hand towels, bath mats and dish washing cloths were missing and they were then delivered on the 3rd morning.

2. While there is adequate seating for 8 people in the chalet it is not condusive to chilling out for a long period of time. There is only one 2 seater couch and the rest of the seating is upright leather chairs. Also there is only a small TV on the mezzanine - while this was no issue to us it might be for some groups of people.

Overall we were very pleased with the chalet and would recommend to anyone who is looking for somewhere self catering in Morzine.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. Traduction (préambule et conclusion): Nous étions un groupe de 8 amis à rester une semaine à partir du 27 janvier 2013. Nous avons skié ensemble tous les ans dans toute l'Europe et avons séjourné dans toutes sortes de lieu, du B&B à l'hôtel 5 étoiles. Nous sommes tous d'accord pour dire que Skadi est un chalet formidable parfaitement situé à Morzine. Nous sommes vraiment très contents du Chalet SKADi et le recommandons à quiconque recherche un chalet sans cuisinier à Morzine.

Should be better

  • 1 of 5

We arrived to find the heating off and the house frozen. The person meeting us was disinterested and unhelpful and it took several hours to get this major issue addressed. The location is great, but the chalet needs a few simple touches to make it liveable (shower screens, a useable kitchen, a 21 st century TV).

We stayed for 2 weeks and when we requested cleaning and a linen change we were told no cleaner and the linen was 200 euros! We called the laundry itself and got new sheets for 45 euro. When I asked about transfer to Geneva I was told 230 euros. The taxi cost 135.

It's a great pity that with a little TLC Skadi could be good.

Owner's Response: On the other side... The chalet was comfortably warm at the contract time of arrival. But this guest arrived 5 hours before the time due and we kindly accepted to open the Chalet. Isn't it better ? As mountain lover and not professional of business I don't like discussing long on money but I have to here. This guest didn't say he stayed 2 weeks with the first one half priced. He transferred 3 times 15€ less than required and I left it. He compares getting some sheets at the loundry facing being delivered sheets, towels and so on as he accepted the price on the contract. As for the taxi, I organized the transfer as a free service and told him the price the taxi expected for it, but the guest family was less people, then needed just one car, then half price... :-) We use our family's chalet as often as we can. We cook easily for ten or more, we are not TV adict, alright, we prefer having room for games, reading and fun together, we love our chalet with its 2nd living room in mezzanine for the children play and the large dining room and living room with a gorgeous panorama !

Great family accommodation

  • 4 of 5

The chalet provides everything you need for a very pleasant stay with the family. We visited with a group of 7 and have been very satisfied both with the chalet and with the beautiful view from the living and the balcony. We hope to visit Chalet Skadi again in the future!

Very practical chalet in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in the very charming Chalet Skadi. The chalet is perfectly located for both skiing and ease of getting into town for shopping and restaurants. The chalet has great views down the valley and across to town of Morzine. It is a very practical layout, with a large storeroom for ski equipment on the entry level, and a very large open plan living area for dining and sitting. The kitchen is basic but very adequate. There is excellent wifi. But best of all is the ability to ski in and ski out.

Owner's Response: Traduction: Notre famille a passé un merveilleux séjour dans le très charmant Chalet SKADi. Le Chalet SKADi est parfaitement situé aussi bien pour skier que pour aller en ville faire du shopping ou aller au restaurant. Le Chalet SKADi offre de superbes vues vers la vallée en contrebas et sur la ville de Morzine. L'organisation du Chalet SKADI est très pratique avec un grand vestiaire pour les équipement de ski au niveau de l'entrée et un étage très spacieux avec salle-à-manger et salon. La cuisine est basique mais très appropriée. La wifi est excellente. Mais le grand avantage est la situation "ski au pied". Réponse: Merci pour le commentaire, il vaut bien encore 5 étoiles...

Great location, fab chalet

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed staying here, perfect location for walking into town and skiing straight to main lifts, albeit with a short walk across snow. The chalet has spacious living space and was very clean and tidy. The owners were wonderfully helpful as was the caretaker on site. We had a great holiday and would certainly consider booking again.

Chalet plein de charme, très agréable et pratique

  • 5 of 5

Le Chalet SKADI est un chalet de montagne comme on les imagine, avec beaucoup de charme. C'est un chalet spacieux et pratique, idéal pour les grandes familles. Il est idéalement situé puisque les commerces de Morzine peuvent être rejoints à pieds en 5 mn, et il a aussi l'avantage d'être un peu isolé des autres habitations et donc d'offrir une vue sur la nature très appréciable.

Car: not necessary

Forget your car: the pistes in front of the Chalet Skadi ask you for skiing or hiking. Chalet Skadi is between the summer winter lifts of Morzine Les Gets and the one to Avoriaz, let you choose! When coming back you take off your sport shoes in front of the doorway and then either have a rest in a leather comfortable sofa or a nice walk in the pretty and lively Morzine center.

Chalet Skadi is silent and deaf at city noise and ski schools meetings 300 m away. So if you prefer staying cosy in Chalet Skadi during the daytime, you will admire the heartbreaking panoramic view with paragliders on sunny days. Would you like sunbathing on the terrace?

In the evening, the children can slide or cavort in the fieds around Chalet Skadi or play inside in their own living room upstairs, you're cool.

On winter Thursday evening, you can see from the sofa your friends skiing on the enlightened slalom piste, are you joining them?
