About Eileen Watts

We live in England with our three children aged 3 to 9. We have fallen in love with Morzine and holiday there as often as we can.

Eileen Watts purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Eileen Watts chose Morzine

Morzine is a great holiday destination. It's an authentic Savoyard town with great restaurants and interesting shops with loads of things to do. The skiing in the Portes du Soleil region is simply vast and summer is a great fun family holiday. Also being only an hour from Geneva is a real bonus.

What makes this chalet unique

We love being only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Morzine with all the restaurants, bars and shops. However the chalet is in a lovely quiet area with stunning views. We also enjoy the space the chalet provides for a large number of people. The garden in summer is great for BBQs and the children to play in.

An ideal stay in Morzine, a comfortable and cosy chalet close to the ski lifts and town center

  • 5 of 5

We were 12 (3 families with 6 adults and 6 children) spending 1 week in Chalet Alpimaja in February 2017. Everyone was very much at ease and happy living in this cosy, authentic and comfortable chalet, despite a cold and snowy weather. The living room around the huge fire place and the large well-equipped kitchen were especially appreciated. Unfortunately, we had little opportunity to enjoy the terrasse and garden due to tough weather, but the chalet lies on the slope of a nice tree-covered valley that is pretty much scenic and charming.

We will undoubtedly try to come back in this chalet whenever we return to Morzine in winter or summer in the future.

Nous avons passé 1 semaine d'hiver dans ce chalet (février 2017), à 3 familles (6 adultes, 6 enfants de 8 à 14 ans). Nous avons été séduit par l'espace intérieur, l'authenticité des boiseries, la cheminée généreuse bien utile pour réchauffer les coeurs et les corps après une journée de ski dans la neige poudreuse, la grande cuisine très bien équipée, les chambres vastes et confortables. Bref, que du bonheur, à 250 m des pistes de ski et 500 m du télécabine du Pléney. Les navettes - gratuites - sont à 200 m. Pour les sites de ski de fond, il vaut mieux la voiture... Nous essaierons de revenir, un prochain hiver ou un prochain été...
