After some time looking (and many years wishing)we bought Chez Natole at Christmas 2011 as our family home in Europe and as something of an antidote to our life in the Middle East. We originally bought it as a place to ski from-and the skiing is fabulous- but have been struck by the tranquillity and beauty of the place each time we have been here and by how much Morzine and area have to offer. The walking is magnificent and we have just discovered mountain biking! There is for us something quite magical about sipping that first morning coffee curled in a window watching the sunrise over the snowy mountains opposite or on a summer's evening sitting out on the terrace with a glass of wine listening to the cow bells. What else can I say? We love it. We hope you will too.
Nikki purchased this chalet in 2011
We wanted to be near Morzine and the Portes du Soleil but away from the noisy streets and nightlife and at the same time not isolated. The thriving village of Seytroux with its shop,restaurants and bars was just what we were looking for: a real french village community, 15 minutes' easy drive from the pistes at the heart of the ski region linking to Les Gets, Chatel and Avoriaz, with amazing walking and biking direct from the door and with the most sensational views over the valley and the mountains. Chez Natole is in a glorious elevated sunny position and we loved it on first sight : a very pretty traditional Savoyard farmhouse with beams and plenty of exposed wood and stone and the original wood burning stove. What you will find is a somewhere unlike most on the rental market- a real family home in the Alps which we have tried to equip with everything you might need on your holiday especially in the kitchen- which is my husband's domain!
Although the house does boast a wealth of original features and always, even in winter, feels warm and cosy, the real winning feature for us was its position. We never tire of the beautiful views and utter tranquility of the location.
"Wonderful relaxing time, good facilities, beautiful views, good area for lots of activities, comfortable beds, good ambience to house. Will return." Janet and Bob.
"The skiing is in very close proximity to the house which made mornings a treat. Great facilities, powerful showers and fluffy towels" Cornelia.
"Good birdwatching even from inside this warm, cosy house.. walks quite wonderful. All the facilities a large party could need. Magical to walk across snowy fields or on pathway to friendly bar." Beth and Andy.
" Convenient and quick access to large ski domain. We have booked again for 2013" Yann.
This authentic chalet was ideal for us as friends sharing. Its homely feel and lay out make it a convivial place to be with companions. The kitchen really is well equipped and again, easy for sharing the cooking and perfect in every way, and we made good use of it. Love the basket for potatoes and onions just like home! The terrace outside much used by the smokers and drinkers in the evening. We never got to play table tennis but wanted to..and to have your film collection was great. We were warm and cozy there with the Godin ( wood burning stove) in the sitting room. We would only ever choose a chalet with a bath so this chalet had everything for us. The Hamlet is peaceful, was always easy to get to by car- no traffic. A huge success for us and we would rent the chalet again Thankyou. Carl and Paula
A well maintained easy chalet - great accommodation and lovely kitchen. Would absolutely recommend this chalet. Easy drive to ski lifts and well stocked nearby supermarket.
Chez Natole is a beautiful hamlet within driving distance of the fantastic ski region of Port du Soleil. The hamlet really feels like a home. It is very warm and comfortable with ample space. Perfect for a relaxing break in the French mountains. It is exceptionally well stocked with cooking equipment and the owners are very helpful.
I would recommend Chez Natole very highly
