About the property

Apartment in Essert Romand Nr. Morzine, Haute Savoie, Rhone Alpes, France - Peaceful Village Location, 5 Minutes To Bustling Ski Resort of Morzine

Chalet Chablais is a traditional wood and stone building. The apartment is well appointed to a very high standard to provide a large open plan living area with underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove. Doors open onto a large balcony to make the most of the sunshine and stunning mountain views. The chalet is located in the quiet village of Essert Romand just minutes in the car from the ski resorts of Morzine and Les Gets. There is a supermarket five minutes away and further down the valley is the traditional town, St Jean d'Aulps. Easily accessible by plane, Geneva is 75 minutes away. In the winter it is a wonderful area for the non-skier with cleared lakeside trails, guided snowshoe trails to see the wildlife and mountain restaurants accessible by lift and foot. The changeover day is Sunday

About Catherine Taylor

We, Andy and Catherine, have owned Chalet Chablais since 2006.

We live in Ambleside in the Lake District. Andy owns a local cycle business and Catherine is a primary school teacher.

We both love cycling, (mountain biking and road biking) fell walking and skiing.

Catherine Taylor purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Catherine Taylor chose Essert-Romand

We had been on holiday to Morzine during the summer for the past few years, staying with friends who had set up a mountain biking business. We fell in love with the area and started to look for a property so that we could spend more time there all year round.

We decided to make an offer for Chalet Chablais after standing on the balcony and looking at the stunning view of the mountains, which at the time was hidden behind some large conifers which have since been removed to open up the view.

What makes this apartment unique

The chalet is ideally located to access the Portes du Soleil ski and biking area although the lifts are not within walking distance. The ski bus passes the top of the road and you can bike into Morzine on the river trail in ten minutes.

Chalet Chablais is also a lovely place to be if you are not a skier. The open plan living area is light and airy, it has a well stocked library and TV and the terrace is a suntrap, perfect for those long lunches! Essert Romand is a peaceful and quiet village, a lovely place to stroll round and explore.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great base for your ski holiday with all the home comforts provided. This is the second time we have stayed here and it is ideal for our family of 5. Plenty room, three bedrooms, warm, good showers, boot dryer, lots of storage space, beautiful kitchen with everything in it, games for the kids, satellite tv to name a few.

No surprises, another great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year for Christmas and had just such a lovely time we wanted to come back, so we did! From arranging the booking to having our Bread and Croissant order delivered to our door in time for breakfast, everything was just so easy. Catherine is always on the end of an email which is reassuring if last minute changes or queries pop up. The chalet was as good as it was last year, just fantastic and equipped for every eventuality, even dryers for your ski boots! The ski area is fabulous and the village is lovely and quiet but close enough for a quick 3 minute drive to morzine centre if you want a busier apres ski experience. You are missing a trick if you don't click and send a message to ask about availability, you will not be disappointed.

Fabulous modern and spacious chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday - beautiful chalet with plenty of space for my two teenage sons to spread out! - Clean, modern kitchen and bathrooms. Lovely living area with a log burner which we used most days. A pretty and quiet spot with great views and within easy reach of Morzine and Les Gets. Would definitely come back again.

Chalet Chablais

  • 5 of 5

We've recently stayed at Chalet Chablais and had a great time. We've stayed in in a number of chalets when skiing in Morzine and its definitely the best. It's ideally situated and presented to a very high standard.

The chalet is a great size with a lovely open plan kitchen/lounge area with everything you could ever need. There's a great selection of books and board games which kept the kids entertained after a day on the slopes.

For those that ski a great plus is the downstairs boot room which allows you to keep the ski gear out of the way and get it dry for the following morning.

A great base to explore Morzine and the surrounding area from.

Highly Recommended

Comfortable luxe

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 5) stayed at Chalet Chablais for the second time.

The Chalet is very quiet, comfortable and luxurious with modern equipment. We went by car to les Prodains cable car to start skiing in Avoriaz and Morzine centre is near.

Excellent chalet with everything you need for a ski holiday with all your home comforts included

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 who stayed for 1 week in February 2016. We rented a car at Geneva. We have being skiing each year in Morzine for over 10 years now and this is the best chalet that we have stayed in. Everything you would want in your ski chalet is here and the decor of the chalet is very nice. The chalet is very cosy and there is plenty of hot water. There is a lovely restaurant 5 minutes walk one way and a good pizza take away 5 minutes walk the other way hence in the evening you do not need to go far to be well fed. There is satellite tv, wifi, lots of books and lots of games to keep the children amused. I was so happy with the chalet that I have put a deposit down for next year.

Car: recommended


Geneva airport is 75 minutes away and there are regular transfers by minibus. It is an 8 hour drive to the channel ports. A car would be useful to reach the ski lifts but in the winter the ski bus passes the top of the street (2 minute walk) on a regular basis.


Morzine and Les Gets are approx 4km. Lake Geneva, Thonon and Evian are about 40 minutes away by car.

Further Details:

There is a large supermarket 5 minutes away by car. There is a traditional Savoyard restaurant in the village, 5 minutes walk.
