Chalet Sol Re, once a traditional farmhouse has been lovingly renovated into a beautiful unique chalet with lots of character. The chalet is in an idyllic location, situated in a tiny picturesque hamlet called Essert La Pierre, 4km from the centre of Morzine. The hamlet sits up high on the north side of the valley which means we enjoy the sun all day long as well as fantastic views down the valley. In the summer we offer self-catered stays in two apartments each sleeping up 4 to 5 or one of our 4 studios that all sleep 2 to 4. All the studios and the apartment have balconies and have terrific views down the valley. All guests are welcome to use the garden which has swings, boules area, pond, table tennis, BBQ and picnic tables. There is off the road parking at the chalet and secure storage for bikes and sports equipment. We are on hand to advise on activities in the area and book any for you.
We have lived out in the French Alps now for 11 years and can't imagine moving back. Running our own chalet company Reach4thealps and our 2 kids, ages 7 and 5 keep us busy. Morzine and Les Gets are just fantastic winter and summer resorts with so much to do for all ages. The summer is now our favourite season when we have more time to spend with the kids at the outdoor pool in Morzine or up at Lake Montriond, just in the garden having a BBQ with friends or going for a pic nic up the mountain. The new Multi Pass scheme is great for guests making an activity holiday an affordable one for families and we are very happy to advise and book activities for guests.
