About Nicky Grischotti

Jem and Nicky Grischotti are the proud new owners of Chalet la Cote and can honestly say that from the instant they visited the chalet it was love at first sight!

Jem's long-term career in commercial photography and Nicky's in radio production kept them based in London for many years so this new life in the mountains is a long awaited and very exciting new adventure - not to mention a challenge!

Their love of skiing began in their childhoods and their five (now grown up) children are all equally avid skiers and snowboarders - so they believe Chalet la Cote really is the perfect place to welcome family and guests alike.

Food has always played an important part in their lives too and Jem's passion for food presentation developed during his 20 years as food photographer working alongside chefs and home economists.

They also co-owned and ran a large family ski chalet in Champagny-en-Vanoise, near La Plagne, from 1990 to 2008 and currently run holiday homes in Lagos, Portugal.

Nicky's first job was as a ski guide in Verbier which for many years she steadfastly believed was the most beautiful ski resort in the world..... until, that is, she came to Morzine which with it's pretty tree-lined pistes and charming Savoyard village has far surpassed her old favourite. And La Cote D'Arboz is even prettier!

Nicky Grischotti purchased this chalet in 2015

Wonderful Chalet With Even Better Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 4 adults and five children. From the moment we made the booking Nicky sent us lovely friendly emails and thought of everything that needed to be planned for us for the week. They behave a bit like an upmarket concierge service, taking care of anything that we needed throughout the holiday. Yes we loved the comfy clean and homely chalet, yes we loved the food, but most of all we felt like Jem and Nicky became our friends and we all want to stay in touch with them now. They worked so hard to make sure we had a great holiday and we so appreciated that.

They are also incredible cooks, serving up restaurant quality food at every meal. glorious breakfasts with everything you want, fab cakes every tea which we could never eat and were so upset to think they were being wasted. Every dinner started with yummy canapes, then 3 courses and then cheese if we wanted (we just couldn't). They served delicious wines or cocktails, literally nothing was too much to ask for. They also made separate food for the kids dinner every night so the adults could eat alone (how incredibly thoughtful?).

I could go on and on about how they sorted the ski hire, drove us everywhere, arranged the transfers, recommended restaurants and booked them for us. decorated with balloons and made a birthday cake for us, but it would take too long.

Just book it, you wont regret it.

A wonderful stay at Chalet la Cote

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We had a wonderful short break over Easter at Chalet la Cote. Our group of 6 adults and three teenagers were made to immediately feel at home by Jem and Nicky’s warm welcome from the moment we arrived with a welcome lunch and drinks.

The beautifully prepared food , from breakfast to home made cakes at teatime and restaurant quality dinner in the evenings meant we were happily well fed during our stay.

Snow conditions were a little poor on the lower slopes , but we made the best of the skiing terrain during our 5 days, with ski hire, transport to and from the slopes made relaxingly easy thanks to our wonderful hosts.

As regards the chalet itself it is luxurious, warm and beautifully decorated, with a hot tub to ease away your aching muscles (with the aid of a beer) after a day on the slopes.

Thank you Jem and Nicky.

Just perfect!

Where do I start! The most beautiful chalet, Jem and Nicky are the perfect hosts who have thought of everything to create the most amazing experience. We were made to feel incredibly welcome and felt so at home. The food created by Jem and Nicky was amazing, the best we have ever had and definitely 5 star! The hot tub was a firm favourite in the evenings which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Felt like we had spent a lovely week with good friends and were truly sorry to leave Jem and Nicky but hope to return!

Don't bother looking anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Really - don't bother looking at any other chalets! This is the best for everything - food, drinks, welcome, decor and luxury of chalet, chalet hosting. We go to Morzine every year and always stay at different chalets each time. We were a group of 6 people and had a wonderful stay with our hosts Nicky and Jem who we now regard as friends (not sure if they feel the same way - but hope so!) - and now I won't have to hunt for chalets next time because this is the only place for us!

It's perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were a big family party - two sisters with their 78-year-old father plus husbands, a (lovely) stepmother and five children aged 6 to 11. The chalet - and Nicky and Jem - are fabulous. Everything could not have been better from the excellent food, the copious supply of wine, the comfortable beds and so on and on on and on. It was our first time in Morzine, and the ski area (Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets) is amazing.

We all loved it. We all want to go back. Leaving the chalet reduced my six-year-old son to tears. We all felt the same way but have just learned to control the tears!

Thank you Nicky and Jem.
