Fiona Brown purchased this chalet in 2013
We bought Chalet des Etoiles due to our family's love of the mountains and of skiing in particular.
The Portes du Soleil ski area is outstanding for all skiing abilities and the summer possibilities are endless.
We enjoy the tranquillity, beauty and sheer power of the mountains in both summer and winter.
Chalet des Etoiles is our base from which we can explore the thrills of the Porte du Soleil ski and adventure area, the nightlife of Morzine, the Lake at Montiond and the beaches of Lake Geneva, whilst being able to get away from it all.
