Overview

About the property

5/5 stars "This is a great apartment located right next to the slopes"

We bought this apartment 'off-plan' in 2004 and started renting and using it in 2005. It can be considered spacious by French alpine standards as it has three proper bedrooms. All our guests agree this is a really nice comfortable apartment but the best thing is it's proximity to the main lift and the nursery slope. It's about two minutes walk to the lift and the apartment sits at the top of the nursery slope. We have carefully selected and equipped the apartment with everything one need in such an accommodation. This includes comfortable seating for six or more adults which is a bit of a rarity in such places (my wife insisted on it :-)). The livable floor area is 45m sq. which is a good bit larger than most French ski apartments.

The apartment includes free Wi-Fi, a dish-washer, TV with integrated DVD, oven with rotisserie, combination microwave and dining seating for six. We have included all the usual kitchen appliances such as toaster, coffee makers, fondue set etc. The three bedrooms have one double bed, two singles and two bunks. The bathroom has a really good powerful shower over the bath (with plenty of hot water) and a washing machine. The WC is separate from the bathroom. There is also a double sofabed in the lounge should it be needed. The balcony provides a lovely spot to look out over the valley and the nursery slopes where you can enjoy watching the less experienced members of your party.

The apartment is always warm and cosy, even without the heating on. We are really particular about ensuring the apartment is spotless for our guests so please expect a really high standard of cleanliness. I can guarantee you will have a wonderful stay whichever time of year you stay with us.

Just quick note about reviews: I have only just listed with Ownersdirect and was with Holidaylettings for the previous 9 years where we had an overall rating of 4/5 stars. Please see my guestbook comments for the reviews we received on Holidaylettings.

About Bryan

Hi, I'm Bryan. I currently live in Norfolk with my wife and two children. We bought the apartment 'off-plan' in 2004 and have spent the last 13 years visiting Morillon and updating the apartment to get it just right for our own and our guests enjoyment.

Bryan purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Bryan chose Les Esserts

Everyone who has stayed has had a really good time and has been really appreciative and complimentary about the apartment; especially its location. Because it is an apartment rather than a large chalet we have focused on getting the right balance between aesthetics and functionality and this has resulted in an attractive, comfortable accommodation where everything - even down to the number of door hooks - has been carefully thought through. If you have been skiing before you will know that apart from the quality of the snow the most important factor is the proximity of where you are staying to the lifts. It is all very well renting a lavish chalet but ultimately you will want to spend most of your time skiing and not walking to or from the lifts or waiting for a bus - especially at the end of a glorious day hitting the slopes hard. With this property, you can on the lift within three minutes of getting your boots on or ski to within 10 metres of the door when your legs won't take any more.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location!

The thing that can make or break a ski holiday is its distance from the slopes and lift. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner you will really love not having to walk for ages to get out onto the mountain or back after a lovely long day of skiing/boarding. The main lift is about 2 minutes walk away from the front door (in ski boots) and the learner slope is just on the other side of the building i.e. less than a minute away.

***Don't forget the summertime!***

The alps make a fantastic holiday destination any time of year and in the summer it is incredibly hot with crystal clear mountain air, loads of activities and fabulous food. Whilst some like to head for the valley bottom in the summer, up the mountain is wonderfully quiet - serene even. If you are looking for for a place to really get away from it all you would find it hard to beat the peaceful tranquility of the French alps.

Guestbook comments from the owner

4/5 stars

Tidy, clean and functional apartment a short walk away from the ski lift and centre of Morillon 1100. Everything you need for a great holiday in what I believe is one of the best ski areas out there especially for families and only a 50 minute drive from Geneva airport.

Lovely apartment right by the ski slopes.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally situated right by the nursery slopes and lifts. Well appointed and decent sized rooms for type of property. Kitchen area well equipped to make straightforward meals and table comfortably seats 6. Downstairs cave for ski storage.

Great access to Grand Massif ski area and across to Flaine now the new lift has been opened. Less crowded, quiet resort compared to Samoens and Flaine.

We were staying for a short break and there is enough in Morillon on an evening to keep you occupied. We went to both a straightforward pizza bistro and a more upmarket restaurant both good value for the region (nothing is cheap!) and friendly service.

Great location near to nursery slopes

  • 4 of 5

Overlooks the nursery slopes with a short (less than 5 mins ) uphill walk to the main chair lifts. Perfect resort for our kids to learn and for us to get in some decent skiing!

It is close to the ski kindergarten. Across the road from the main ski lift. You can ski right into the apartment. Lovely views from the balcony.

Fantastic large apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment and yet agin it did not disappoint. The apartment is large with 3 PROPER bedrooms unlike other rentals in French ski resorts. The upgrades to the apartment this year( wifi and larger tv in the lounge) are a great added extra. The location to the chair lift is only a few metres walk with access to the whole of the grand massif ski area. A massive supermarket is a 5 min drive away but if you forget anything the supermarket in resort has everything you could want. It's nice to have a couple of restaurants and bars on your doorstep. This apartment is the best rental we have stayed in over the numerous years we have spent skiing and we will certainly be back.

Great base for a ski trip in Morillon

  • 4 of 5

Morillon 1100 is a very compact resort and compared to some other ski resorts most accommodation would be considered close to the lifts and other amenities.

However, this apartment is particularly well situated - virtually "ski-in ski-out", and literally overlooking the nursery slopes.

With the right expectation (European ski accommodation is generally "compact") - our group of 4 adults and 3 children was comfortable, and the owners have furnished and laid it out sensibly.

For us it Morillon is a great location for a ski holiday with young families:

Ski-in ski out so no time wasted in the car in the morning and easy to change over at lunchtime

Quiet area with everything you need in the village (ski hire, bakery, grocery shop)

Short transfer time from Geneva airport (1 hr)

Nursery slopes close by (as well as an actual nursery - childcare - should you require it)
