Overview

About the property

Sunny, luxury chalet with hot tub & stunning views, sleeps 10 in 4 bedrooms

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.

Hot tub ideally located on up-lit decking immediately outside the chalet with great views across the town and valley.

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.

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.

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.

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!
