About the property

Self catered chalet - sleeps 8+ in 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Chalet Les Geckos is a self-catered chalet, situated in beautiful surroundings. Individually designed by a local architect, the chalet offer you space, warmth and a place to relax after a hard day in the mountains. The chalet will delight you with its vaulted ceilings, wood burning stoves and huge windows, letting the Alpine light flood in. An outside terrace and balcony allow you enjoy the outside world, along with the large garden backing onto the forest. Underfloor heating downstairs ensure the chalet is always warm and cosy.

The chalet is situated in the Vallee de la Manche, opposite the cross-country ski and bike trails. In winter, the free ski bus stops 50m from the chalet door and takes 5 minutes to the nearest ski lift at Nyon and 10 minutes to the Pleney ski lift in the centre of Morzine. Throughout the rest of the year, a car is required to access the property.

The chalet sleeps 8 comfortably in 4 large bedrooms, a flexible mezzanine space offers the potential for 2 extra beds plus a travel cot available if required.

There are 2 double bedrooms with a king sized bed and 2 twin bedrooms with 2 single beds. Also there are 2 family sized bathrooms with a shower over the bath.

The living area is open plan with a large sitting/dining area leading to a spacious kitchen containing all the equipment you need to ensure a successful stay.

The garage has been converted into a large drying room in the winter for skis, boots and clothes and a secure storage area in summer for mountain bikes.

The chalet has free unlimited WiFi, TV, DVDs, PS2 to keep you entertained in the evenings.

Catered Option - working in partnership with Chalet Kitchen, we also offer the option of having delicious, affordable meals delivered freshly prepared to your door. All you have to do is pop them in the oven. Having breakfast with fresh bread is also an option.

Great chalet and beautiful quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great chalet for a group of friends or a couple of families. It is situated in a beautiful part of the vallee de la manche approximately 4-5 km from Morzine centre. We were a group of 8 friends and had a great week out there.

Top nodge!

Snow conditions were very bad but the quality and cosiness of the chalet completely compensated for this.

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine dans cette location ,très bien équipé, .Dommage juste que le chemin d accès soit entierement glacé et donc difficile d accès pour les gens du troisième âge..
