Apartment in Morillon village, Haute Savoie, French Alps - Ideal Location For All. A Quaint Traditional French Village With All Amenities Necessary
About Chris Newton
My first ski holiday was a long time ago now, and as my children got to the age to learn to ski I went to Morillon on a recommendation. That was over 8 years ago now and I try and get back whenever the pennies will allow me to. My two daughters are quickly growing up now but we always have time to visit our little bolt hole!
Chris Newton purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Chris Newton chose Morillon
My first holiday in Morillon was over 10 years ago with my two young daughters. We had such a lovely holiday we kept going back and decided to buy something to 'escape' to. It really is a great place to stay, part of the Grand Massif there is so much to ski for every ability too. It is very easy to get to, the drive from the airport is quick and easy and the location is brilliant, so close to all the amenities and more importantly the lift! No waiting for a lift or ski bus just pick up your skis from the locker room and a 20 metre walk to get on the telecabine, it's that easy, even more worthwhile at the end of the day when your legs are tired! The village is very quaint, typically French and never gets too busy.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, location, location!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Fantastic location, already booked for next year.
Great appartment, right next to the gondola.
Yes the appartment is small but it has everything you need and we were more than happy as a family of 4. Immaculately clean and beds made ready for when we arrived. Key access and entry on arrival very straight forward. Communication with the owner was first class. Use of the safe storage for your skis and boots etc is really useful.
For those staying in Morillon there is a small and quite expensive supermarket, a much bigger carrefour supermarket is half way between Morillon and Samoens - not far away but difficult to reach without your own car. Ski hire shops are on your doorstep - I'd recommend Skimium. Overall a great skiing area with a good range of slopes for all abilities and even though we were there during half term there were hardly any queues for the lifts.
Thank you for your review of studio doina and comments which sum up the studio perfectly. A great guest and i hope you will want to come and stay again and ski some more of the wonderful Grand Massif..
Lovely studio. Perfect location
Lovely little apartment with great parking. English TV was a bonus. Couldn't be any closer to the lifts. Had a lovely holiday and will definitely stay there again
Thank you for your review and I am so pleased you had a lovely holiday. You are welcome back anytime.
Happy New Year!
Great place to stay with good and easy access up the mountain
Ideal location adjacent to the gondola ideal for younger for all age groups especially after a hard day skiing. Some good local restaurants and a few bars within a 2minute walk. Never stayed anywhere so convenient to a gondola station, a great location, had a fabulous holiday we will return
Great apartment - Perfect base
Stayed in Feb 2018. Great location right by the telecabin in Morillon. Comfortable sofa bed and bunks. Powerful shower with plenty of hot water. Couldn’t fault anything. Very helpful owner with lots of useful information. Thank you.
Thanks you for your review. Delighted that it was everything that you expected and that you had a great holiday.
I hope that you will consider staying at the studio again in the future.
Spent a lovely week in Morillon staying in Studio Doina. Great central position , next door to the telecabine up to Morillon 1100. Great view from the balcony. Comfortable, clean and well- equipped studio appartment. Shower was really powerful, best I have come across in holiday accommodation.
Great to have use of the garage and ski locker.
Chris, the owner very helpful.
Morillon is a lovely traditional Savoyard village, it is small but there are some good restaurants - La Puzze and La Carline serve good traditional mountain food. Lovely bar and restaurant by Lac Bleu.
The bigger village of Samoens is about 5 minutes away by car.
Thanks Alison for your comments I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope that you'll want to stay again.
All the best.
