About the property


Chalet la Moraine is a wonderful self catering private chalet in Chamonix. Set in a lovely large garden with parking for up to 6 cars, it's a stunning location with views from every window up and down the Chamonix valley and especially from the enormous southerly facing deck and balcony up to Mont Blanc. The 5 bedrooms all with ensuite or private bathrooms can be made up as either super-king doubles or 2 large singles. Chalet facilities include; open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, free wifi, Satellite TV (full Sky package in the lounge including movies and sport), beautiful log burner and supply of logs for cosy evenings in whilst enjoying the huge DVD collection. This floor also has a separate large sauna suite and its own shower. The large Arctic Spa hot tub on the deck has amazing views up to Mont Blanc. The Chalet is in the perfect location to access all the skiing in the Chamonix valley. It's a 2 minute walk away from the ski bus stop, and a further couple of minutes walk takes you to the local train stop that runs up and down the valley. We provide guest passes so you can use the bus and train for free. INFORMATION: Please use the "ASK OWNER A QUESTION" button first, so we can make sure the chalet is right for you, confirm your dates are available & answer any questions you may have before booking.

There is an amazing bakery a couple of minutes walk away from the chalet for your daily bread and cakes and there are restaurants and bars within a 5–10 minute walk from the Chalet.

We can take payments in £ pounds sterling to our UK Bank account or in Euros to our French Bank Account.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Trip Advisor Review from January 2015


We arrived in Chamonix having never been before. Because we arrived late in the evening, the chalet was lit up and warm for our arrival, both the owners Richard & Sarah as well as Chris and Fraser from their management company (Apex) were hugely attentive in making sure that we got there and got access OK. Together they couldn't have been more helpful. The chalet is soooo comfortable and very very well equipped. We were self catering and we enjoy cooking, there wasn't a utensil, electric kitchen device or item that we couldn't was just grand. The chalet is handy for all the ski options in Chamonix and after a full on day in the hills, a sauna, shower and outdoor hot tub are all that you need to unwind and find yourself in a very happy place. Chris and Fraser from Apex were on hand for any local issues and or questions and at check out we were introduced to the cleaning team who were just lovely too!...we are sad its all over for us, but its now a fond and cherished memory. A brilliant 6* experience from start to finish.

Chalet La Moraine a lovely home from home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I saw the photos and description of the chalet I knew that I wanted to stay here. Sarah made the booking process really easy and provided some really great information about the property and the local area before we travelled. Any questions that we had were answered and Sarah could not have been more helpful and accommodating.

On arrival we found the chalet to be exactly as advertised, every member of our family party was really pleased with our choice of chalet. The description was exactly as written, except for the special extra touches which had been added that made our stay even better.

The location of the property is one of its best assets, it is in a quiet area, yet only a very short walk away from both the bus and train stops. This location gives you the opportunity to explore the area with such ease and the transport cards which are provided enable free bus and train journeys.

There is a bakery literally within a couple of minutes walk which we visited on several days. Both Chamonix and Les Houches are within easy reach for restaurants, cafes and supermarkets.

Before we travelled Sarah had provided a lot of information on activities and trips in the area, there is a folder of information in the chalet too which has brochures and timetables.

We all felt really at home in the chalet, there were 9 of us staying there and it accommodated us all well. The open plan kitchen lounge/diner is an ideal space for a group and the bedrooms and bathrooms are all very nicely appointed.

We all had such a great time at La Moraine and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

Excellent Stay - Hope to be back!

  • 5 of 5

Richard & Sarah made this a very delightful visit. The attention to detail, including the pre and post visit communication was flawless. We had a bottle of Champagne and a even some dinner waiting for us. After a long journey, we were most happy to see that. The living area was perfect to gather after a long day on the slopes to chat with cheese and wine. The hot tub is very large and was awesome, looking up at the Mont Blanc. The hosts even go so far as emptying it out after each guest - was most impressed by that. I would only recommend having a 4x4 or chains if heavy snow is expected. You MUST get your skis & boots if renting from Bertrand in Les Houches @Ski-Perf. We had an awesome stay, and thanks for dialing in the massive snow dumps, we all enjoyed that! Was a gentleman's trip, so now have to come back with spouses & families - Hope to be back! Highly recommend. Thank you Richard & Sarah.

Excellent Chalet in a brilliant location to enjoy all Chamonix has to offer

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find somewhere so close to the busy life of Chamonix town centre, but hidden away in such a beautiful location. The views are totally stunning. Sarah & Richard were so helpful & genuinely keen to make sure we had a wonderful time at their beautiful Chalet…..We all loved it & are already planning our next trip!

Fantastic chalet with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet La Moraine was perfect in every way. Size, location, cleanliness, facilities and so much useful information from Sarah the owner. Just outside Chamonix it was so quiet but close enough to walk to places to eat and drink.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, Thanks for your review, we’re so pleased you had a great stay. You are right, we are very lucky with our location, it’s the best of both worlds! Close enough to Chamonix town centre so you can enjoy everything, but, in a beautiful, quiet location with space, away from the built up centre of Chamonix. Look forward to seeing you all again in the future. Best wishes Sarah & Richard

Fantastic Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb stay at the chalet, it was a real home from home. We hired a car but ended up using public transport most of the time as the bus and train stops were really close and the service was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay and the kids did not want to come home.

A wonderful chalet in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Chalet with extended family and everyone had a great time. The chalet was perfect for us. The owners, Richard and Sarah, were very helpful, giving us lots of useful info before our stay. The chalet is really well equipped. The views are incredible and we especially enjoyed sitting in the hot tub looking up at the mountains.

There are a couple of restaurants close by. We walked to the Rocky Pop restaurant and had a wonderful family meal. We also found an incredible bakery very close to the chalet. We all had a great time and have already recommended the chalet to friends.

The Chamonix Valley is a mecca for winter and summer outdoor pursuits: mountaineering, hiking, climbing, biking, paragliding, plus fabulous skiing and all the winter activities!

There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Chamonix and Les Houches, perfect for apres ski or indeed any time of the day eating and drinking. There are a wide selection of shops in Chamonix to suit all tastes and budgets from Chanel to supermarkets and the weekly Saturday morning market is great for picking up local produce.

A sports centre, swimming pool, tennis courts, cinema screening English and French films and a golf course all complement the local amenities in the Chamonix Valley.

Chamonix is situated close to the Mont Blanc tunnel and the Italian border. Spectacular mountain scenery, majestic ice falls and glaciers, one of Europe's highest cable cars and a ski season into May, all mean that Chamonix is hard to beat.

Other Activities: Rock Climbing

Ski: The Chamonix Valley has some of the best skiing in the world & hosts the famous Kandahar Mens's Alpine World Cup race.

There are 6 main ski areas in the Chamonix valley & they vary greatly from challenging off piste, to the valley blanche a legendary run of 22kms, to the famous Kandahar run in Les Houches.

Les Houches is great for intermediates (& also beginners) & is one of the best places to ski when the weather is bad. The Brevent ski area & Aiguille du Midi lift (for Valley Blanche) are both in Chamonix, which is a 5 minutes drive away. The other areas; Les Grands Montets in Argentiere, La Flegere in Le Praz and the Le Balme area in Le Tour are in different parts of the valley but are easy to get to from the Chalet. Courmayeur in Italy, is also another alternative as the Mont Blanc Unlimited ski pass covers the Courmayeur ski area
