We spent a wonderful week at the lovely Chalet Les Marmottes. It has a really homely feel and loads of space and is conveniently located in close walking distance to the ski lift as well as the restaurants, bars and shops of Morillon (which is a lovely little town). The owners provide useful and comprehensive instructions and there is a really helpful local contact should you need them. A wonderful family holiday was had by all and we shall definitely be returning!
What a wonderful short break we had in this lovely chalet. Perfect for us. Close to everything you would need and a fantastic log fire to boot!
