Overview

Portes du Soleil Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Sunny, luxury chalet with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, - sleeps 10 in comfort

Extensively re-furbished in Mountain Style for the 2015 season, Chalet Muguet still has the same stunning location and views, but now boasts more luxury and comfort for our guests.

Soft leather seating by the wood burning fire has a large L shaped sofa by Darlings of Chelsea finished in soft Selvaggio leather surrounded by cushions, animal skins and faux fur blankets, decorated with an original neon wall installation. Smart flat screen TVs on all levels provide UK satellite TV or DVD, plus wireless Sonos and ipod /CD player can be used to play your own content.

A spacious wooden dining table seats 10, enjoying double-aspect views across Morzine town and the surrounding valleys, and access through doors to the double-aspect balconies.

The kitchen has masses of equipment for large scale catering and easy access to the dining area for communal cooking. Double doors lead onto an additional south-facing private sun deck which is simply stunning for coffee, lunches or BBQ. Talking of coffee, a DeLunghi machine will steam up an expresso or cappucnini on demand! If you want Haut Savoir style, use the pierre rade. (Hot Stone) and order meats from the butcher on Route du Thonon.

All the beds are singles. Of the four bedrooms, two have en-suite and the other two share a family bathroom. Two bedrooms have three beds and two have two beds. Each bed has fresh white linen sheets, pillows and duvets of hotel-quality 400 thread Egyptian cotton.

The location:

Set in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, the largest linked ski area in Europe, Morzine is the largest town situated close to the Swiss border . Chalet Muguet is in a fantastic hillside position just a couple of minurtes walk from the bustling centre of Morzine, with easy access to shops, bars, markets, restaurants, night-life and sports complexes, making it ideal for summer and winter holidays.

Located on the Pleney slopes which can be reached on skis from the Piste B blue run, the chalet has stunning views across the town and the valley, with easy access to all main lifts, including the Pleney gondola lift to Les Gets, and the SuperMorzine gondola which provides direct ski access to Avoriaz , to reach the highest skiing in the Portes du Soleil.

In addition these lifts provide on-ski access to all 14 major ski areas within the Portes du Soleil linked ski area, and there is no need to travel either by car or Navette (the free ski bus service) to access them from the chalet.

Chalet Muguet was built to our specification in the year 2000 and has been equipped and furnished to a high standard with spacious self-catering kitchen & larger than average accommodation over three floors. One bedroom is encased in glass, for a light & airy effect . You will love to eat in!

Two balconies, a south-facing deck and picture windows capture dramatic views up and across the valley encompassing Nyon, Avoriaz and the entire town of Morzine.

Although the chalet is self-catered, there is a very full inventory of cooking equipment and the kitchen is open-plan, allowing meal preparation to be a convivial affair. We also are able to recommend some very fine local chefs who provide an in-house catering service by arrangement if you wish.

About David Lowrie

The Lowrie family had already skied Les Portes du Soleil area for 10 years before we finally decided to base ourselves in Morzine; a decision we have never regretted over the following 15 years of ownership. We had the chalet built to our specification by a local wooden chalet builder. We continue to love every minute spent in the resort, and relish the opportunity to share the serentity of our chalet with friends and relatives from all over the world.

David Lowrie purchased this chalet in 2000

Why David Lowrie chose Portes du Soleil

One of the finest sites in Morzine. Wonderful views yet also close to all facilities in the town.

What makes this chalet unique

A very sunny location with great views across the town and up and down the valley. Within a couple of minutes guests can walk to bars, restaurants, hotels and shops. Personally I love the morning walk to the boulangerie even if the car is in the drive.

In winter there is a joy to skiing in from Piste B which runs behind us, crossing a field and arriving at the front door on skis!.

In summer the area attracts the local horses which roam free in adjacent fields.At all times the serene views across the valley and the town make it a spectacular place to relax.

Expectation exceeded by far!

  • 5 of 5

After a week in Chalet Muguet, we couldn't be more happy!!

The description is very accurate, and were is not in reality is better than described.

The Chalet was impeccable on facilities and very clean. We all stay comfortable, never have cold, the eating system is great, very well maintained.

The communication with the owner was smooth, kind, very accurate and fast. The contact with the key keeper was also great and smooth.

Not only I would recommend to a friend, I've already pass the contacts and I will definitely come back.

The super Morzine lift to access Avoriaz / Switzerland is very close to chalet, and the Morzine lift is even closer, with the plus of skiing back to the chalet door!!

My sadness is that I only stay for a week ... next time I will stay for at least 2 weeks!!

Highly recommended!!!

Perfect stay, wonderful location in Morzine

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 2 families and 4 kids. It was more than comfortable with the 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and the charming living room. We had an immediate "homy" feeling,

The chalet had everything we needed, from boots dryer to washing machines, and the Jacuzzi at the end of the day with a stunning view of the village will be a long lasting memory.

The location is perfect, a short 10 minutes walk (with a lazy 5y old) to the main lift. We left all gear in a locker at Sport 2000 in front of the lift. We couldn't try the ski-in return to the chalet as we needed to pick up the kids from the lessons at the end of the day. Very close to the center (everything walking distance) and still a very quite location away from the noisy bars. We will definitely try to come back to the same place in Morzine>

A really comfortable accomodation

  • 5 of 5

With a family of 10 staying for a week it was not over crowded. Facilities were more than adequate and the new hot tub was much in demand. Morzine in the summer is a great place for acitive teenagers as well as for the less acitive Grandparents. We would all recomment this accomodation and town for a summer break.

Great Location, Wonderful Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Muguet exceeded our expectations, lovely furnishings, comfy beds, everything was thought of for our two week stay, albeit a fan for the glass room as the first week was mega hot(but I was told that's unusual weather). Good communication with the owner.

We loved the outdoor area and watching the paragliders come to land from the top of the mountain. So much going on and very close to both the Super Morzine and Pleney lifts. The swimming pool was fantastic and clean!! lovely walks by the river, tree-top walking course, horse riding, visits to caves it was all do-able without a car. Handy supermarket 5 mins away for daily baguettes etc...

Need I say more it was memorable holiday...oh and the jacuzzi was the lovely bit of luxury and the end of a long days activities!!

Wonderful Chalet, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week in Chalet Muguet. It is a very well kept chalet, with good facilities, in a very convenient location. A short (albeit uphill) walk to the piste that runs down to Pleney lift. the view over the town from main bedroom window is majestic. Looking forward to 2016 as will certainly be going back. Will M

Morzine has the easiest access of all the alpine resorts, located just 30km from Thonon on the shores of lake Geneva, and 25km from the A 40 AutoRoute which skirts the city of Geneva. Drive time to Geneva airport is just over one hour.

Morzine is twinned with its sister resort Avoriaz to combine the best of high alpine skiing with traditional Haute Savoie village atmosphere. Having been established as a ski resort for 80 years, Morzine is the largest of the 12 resorts in the Portes du Soleil. creating one of the finest ski playgrounds in the world, with 700 kms of piste served by 230 lifts.

The Pleney Ski llift is just 5 minutes walk and the SuperMorzine ski lift in the direction of Avoriaz is also just 5 minutes walk from the chalet The nearest ski resort is Les Gets, but it is easily possible to lunch in a variety of Swiss or French resorts. Various types of snow sports are available, such as ski du fond , ski randonee and raquettes, skidoo hire, ice hockey & skating stadium and luge. There are plenty of local outdoor activities, shopping and night-life all within easy walking distance

Other Activities: VTT, white water rafting, canyoning, kayaking, adventure playgrounds, summer luge, ice skating, horse, pony and sleigh rides, ice hockey, tennis, golf

Ski: This property is ski-in, being located just 200 meters from the Pleney lift, and 100 meters below the piste which returns to Morzine (subject to snow conditions). A 5 minute walk provides access to gondola lifts which connect to either the Morzine/Pleney/Les Gets ski area, or alternatively to Super-Morzine, Avoriaz, and the vast Portes du Soleil ski area.Free ski buses link to all other areas in the 14-resort Portes du Soleil. There is no need to use a car in the resort, but if you wish to drive to different areas, a 15 minute journey is all it takes to reach Les Gets, Ardent(for Les Linderets), Nyon for Les Gets or the telepherique to Avoriaz.

All types of skiing and snowboard abilities are catered for in the area, with dozens of moderate pistes accessible from Pleney, more challenging off and on-piste skiing and boarding in the Avoriaz area, while long distance ski touring through combinations of the French and Swiss resorts is especially rewarding. It is perfectly acceptable to pop over to Switzerland for lunch, and on the pistes, passports are not required!
