We are Helen and Gerard Gent from Farnham in Surrey. We have two sons in their mid-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
"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."
Just returned from a 2 week holiday with my husband and 14 year old daughter. The photos do not do this apartment justice. There are 2 terraces and a balcony (as the property sits in the side of the mountain) - the main terrace has an incredible view over Morzine. The Lounge is very comfortable with 2 sofas which look out of a huge picture window at the amazing view. The kitchen was well equipped with the use of a dishwasher and washing machine. There are 2 roomy bedrooms with plenty of storage. There is 'under building' parking which kept the car secure.
The location is perfect. Its a short, few minutes, walk into the main town, the 2 main cable cars, the 'summer' sledge and the swimming pool complex.
The area is fantastic. We visited Lake Montriond which is stunning, did various long walks (including a walk and chair lift over to Switzerland), enjoyed the sledging and swimming complex. We visited lake Geneva to go kayaking and swimming and even drove to the chocolate factory in Switzerland (on the one rainy day we had). We spent our last day in Geneva.
As we were staying in Morzine we were able to get a 'multi pass' for 2 euros each per day (think this only applies in the summer though and is arranged via the agency). The multi pass then gave us access to all of the chair lifts and cable cars in the area, swimming pool complex and a discounted rate for sledging. The buses were free which meant we could walk round to other villages and get the bus back. The holiday therefore felt really good value for money.
Although we had a really busy holiday I came back feeling relaxed as the people working and visiting Morzine were really friendly and happy to chat with us. We visited Chamonix and although the scenary and the glacier is worth seeing, the place didn't have the same atmosphere as Morzine.
As you can tell I would really recommend the apartment and Morzine and I know that I will be back again in the future as we didn't get to fit in everything we wanted to do in the 2 weeks we were there.
We had a fantastic family holiday in Morzine with this beautiful apartment as our base. We were very grateful for the underground parking, keeping our car safe and protected from the elements. We arrived to a superbly clean, well heated apartment, again greatly needed after an 11 hour drive! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our two boys loved the place and were instantly at home on the large, comfy sofas. They also loved the fact that the balcony opens out onto a shared garden area for snowball fights. The location was very central, just a 10 minute walk to the intersport ski hire shop and Pleney bubble lift. You could even ski down to the apartment if you wanted to. Just brilliant, would highly recommend and looking forward to staying again.
We booked the apartment for six people, unfortunately, due to illness two didn't make it. The four of us who did were very impressed with the apartment. We have used many apartments in Morzine over the last 11 years. This was easily the best value for money. Although a bit of a walk from the centre, the benefit is that it is quiet. When the snow was good, we could ski right back to the door as it is just off the main piste back to Morzine. The apartment is fully equipped and very clean. The only recommendation to the owners was to supply a slow cooker. Would be great to come back to a chilli, curry or whatever after a days skiing. It has a great view of the surrounding mountains, great to wake up to. With two bedrooms it was more than enough for six people. Undercover parking is useful if it snows heavily, although we didn't get it this year. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Morzine either for a winter or summer break. We will definitely book it again.
This was the first time we had booked an apartment for skiing so were a little nervous. However we did not need to be as the service we received was excellent. Any questions we had were answered quickly and the instructions that went with the apartment were perfect. The apartment itself is better than the pictures imply, great kitchen and well equipped, the washing machine with three children was invaluable and the microwave combi oven was good enough to cook a small roast! The beds were very comfortable as were the sofas, good to be able to watch the Rugby on the Freeview satellite and the hot water lasted forever!
The apartment is in a fantastic location - you really can ski to the balcony and it is only a 10minute walk into the centre of town. If you don't want to walk there is the free bus, and the stop for that is right outside the apartment block, perfect if you have young children.
Overall I could not recommend this apartment highly enough, if I could give it 6 stars I would and I will return!
One of the most comfortable appartments we have stayed in. It's warm with bags of hot water. The wifi was a success with our children and my husband. The settees were comfy at the end of a long day unlike some places we have stayed and will definitely be returning! Close to the town centre but easy to drive to Les Gets and surrounding areas. A great, relaxing holiday.
Clean and comfortable and relaxing.
Walk to the Pleney and to the town.
The bus stop is immediately over the road for the Super Morzine and PdS.
Parking in a secure garage.
The managing agent is professional.
Staying away from home does not get easier than this!
