Overview

About the property

Well equipped base for SKIERS and WALKERS with balconies & mountain views

Comfortable 60 sq metre apartment, enjoying a peaceful location on the slope below piste 'B' running to the Pleney lift . Six minutes walk from the village centre with its fast lifts giving direct access to Les Gets, Avoriaz and the entire Portes du Soleil area and its many winter and summer activities. The free 'navette' bus stops right outside the door. This spacious well-equipped "home from home" apartment benefits from views and balconies in all rooms and direct access to communal lawns.

The living area is bright and sunny with picture windows onto the balcony and slopes behind, plenty of comfortable seating, an extendable dining-table and a "bar" to the kitchen, so the cook is not excluded from the fun whilst having a separate space to create in.

The two bedrooms have balconies and large double beds which can easily be separated into twin beds. There are wardrobes, chests of draws and shelving creating plenty of storage areas in both rooms. There is a large sofa-bed and chest of drawers in the living room for additional visitors.

The bathroom has a basin with cabinet space, bath, shower, large heated towel rail and plentiful hot water. The loo is separate.

There is allocated secure garage parking on the ground floor, a secure ski locker with shelves for boots and helmets (though you may prefer to use one of the ski "depots" in the village), TV, Digibox (for free to view channels), DVD, Wi-Fi, MP3 speakers, wash/dryer and washing-up machines.

Bed linen, towels, tea towels, loo paper and bathroom products are provided.

Conveniently sited for shopping and the many lively and traditional 'apres ski' activities in the village, this is ideal all year accommodation to relax in after an active day SKIING, SNOW BOARDING, WALKING, or whatever takes your fancy from the many winter and summer mountain sports available. SUMMER MULTI-PASSES available.

WINTER SKIING, SNOW BOARDING AND NORDIC SKIING:

Morzine offers direct access by fast lifts to the pistes of Les Gets/ Morzine and to the entire Portes du Soleil area. The new lift linking Linga and Chatel means the whole area is now easily accessible. All standards are provided for from green pistes to the infamous black "Swiss Wall".

For those with a car who want to explore a bit further you can get to Praz-de-Lys in less than 30 minutes. Chamonix, Megeve, Flaine and Les Houches (our favourite) are about an hour away. You can even be on the slopes of Verbier by 9.30 if you don't mind an early start! All the resorts have parking by their lifts so access to the slopes is no problem.

SUMMER ALPINE WALKING and MULTIPASS:

Morzine has access to beautiful walking areas directly from the village and from a number of nearby centres. Morzine Tourist Office can provide details of routes and accompanied walks. Guide books to walks in the Haute-Savoie are provided in the apartment - but please leave for other guests to enjoy.

The Portes du Soleil "Multi-Pass" gives you access to leisure activities - swimming pool, tennis courts etc PLUS chair lifts for just 2 Euro a day. See Morzine's Tourist Information site for full details.

About Helen Gent

We are Helen and Gerard Gent from Farnham in Surrey. We have two sons in their late twenties now living in London.

We fell in love with Morzine and our apartment in the summer of 2006. It was our first visit to Morzine and we were based there whilst Gerard and our younger son climbed Mont Blanc. The region's vibrancy and facilities in the summer combined with its well deserved reputation as a great skiing area ticked all the boxes for us. We use the apartment for several weeks both in the summer and winter, as do our sons, extended family and friends.

The apartment is very much a second home for us and we have furnished and equipped it to be a welcoming, comfortable base to return to after a day out on the hills, be that winter or summer. It is bright and sunny, has limitless hot water and balconies with direct access on to the communal grounds for relaxing in the sun and enjoying the views. The undercover parking lot is a great bonus, particularly in the winter. When looking for an apartment a peaceful setting was important to us, but so too was proximity to the lifts and village, so the apartment is situated in a quiet spot just a few minutes easy walk away from the centre.

Helen Gent purchased this apartment in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely apartment. With two strapping teenagers the accommodation was perfect - we were extremely comfortable and it was an excellent base for exploring both sides of The Portes Du Soleil."

Great family holiday near centre of Morzine

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at A1 Major Apartment for half term week with our two boys, aged 11 and 16. The property is nice and warm, has great wifi and is very comfortable for a week's stay. The Pleney lift is within easy walking distance as long as you keep your ski's and boots at one of the shops near the lift. Otherwise I would recommend the free local buses of which there is a stop right outside. The cooker is fine for making easy meals and has a microwave underneath if you need an oven. We had Sky tv box and were able to watch the standard UK TV channels too. All in all a great find and "home from home"!

So good we have booked to go again next year

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, homely apartment. Shower was great after a days skiing with plenty of hot water. WiFi was great according to our 2 teenagers. Apartment has a washer/dryer, dishwasher, slow cooker which was fab. You could ski to do the door from piste B although we preferred to store our skis in Pleney Sports by the Pleney lift.

Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans cutlery etc. FreevieevTV with a DVD player including a selection of DVDs, we particularly liked led watching Hacksaw Ridge.Apartment also benefits from an allocated underground parking space.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and we hav already booked to go back again next year!

Spacious and well equipped. 10 minutes walk to town centre. Loads to do with kids in Morzine.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks in Morzine. Apartment was spacious and well equipped. Multipass was a great purchase and saved us a lot of money on the lifts up the mountains. Swimming and tennis courts also free with the pass which we made full use of.

Everything you needed. Like being at home.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely well maintained spacious apartment. Everything you need for cooking and eating at home if you don't want to eat out every night. Great to have enough comfortable seating after a day on the slopes, for all the party. Sound system speakers were a real bonus as well and good fast wifi. Ample storage in all rooms. Endless hot water.

Access to the ski slopes was good with the nanette stoping right out side the front door.

Will happily return to the apartment if coming back to Morzin.
