Overview

About the property

Chalet Milou, Morillon, self catered with flexi-catering available, pet-friendly

Sleeps up to 12 people in 6 large double bedrooms with 5 bathrooms. Sleeps up to 8 people in 4 large double bedrooms with 3 bathrooms.

Well behaved pet accepted on request.

Chalet Milou is offered self catered, with flexi-catering options offered at an extra cost during the winter season - eg breakfast hampers, packed lunches, afternoon tea, and prepared dishes delivered for your evening meal. In summer, the chalet is offered on a self-catered basis only.

Chalet Milou is a recently built traditional wooden alpine chalet with 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms (3 ensuite) and a large open living area which offers a wood burning stove, walk round balcony and hot tub.

Pets are accepted, on specific agreement of the owners.

Its recent build to high standards ensures warmth, comfort and relaxation to guests year round.

Morillon is a traditional French alpine village rather than a modern ski resort so it maintains a lovely family atmosphere.

Chalet Milou is very close to 3 different ski lifts all offering rapid access to the vast Grand Massif ski area. Morillon is just a few hundred metres walk away, and the ski bus stop is 50 metres from the chalet. The beautiful historic village of Samoëns with its lovely main square, shops, restaurants and markets is just 1km. Chalet Milou also has its own generous private garden with outside BBQ.

The main living area is on the first floor: the very large family kitchen is open to the dining room across the integrated breakfast bar – allowing sociable family cooking and eating. The kitchen offers a very large full height American fridge and separate huge full height freezer; it also has a Microwave, 5-hob gas cooker, electric fan oven, fan extractor, and double sink; it is extremely well equipped with all the modern kitchen machines, utensils and mod cons you would expect in your own home (Espresso Machine, French coffee press, Electric Mokka Pot, toaster, Fondue set, Raclette set, blender stick, kettle, Soda Stream, knife sharpener, etc). We also provide an abundance of quality pots, pans, casseroles, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.

On arrival you will find a welcome pack containing starter quantities of: bread, spaghetti, tinned tomatoes, beer, wine, milk, salt, pepper and spices, tea, coffee, butter/spread, olive oil, sunflower oil, loo roll, soaps, washing up liquid, washing powder - and probably lots of other things.

The kitchen flows onto the dining room with a large wooden table, which flows through to the sitting room with sofas, TV, and wood burning stove. Satellite TV (all UK Freeview channels), WIFI, as well as a powerful bluetooth speaker is provided with connections for streaming or playing from your own Laptop/PC or mobile device. The generous wooden balcony surrounds the living room and has an area with a large hot tub. On the 1st floor are Bedrooms 4, 5 and 6, one double or 2 twin beds if preferred with a bathroom opposite with WC, sink and shower, with 2 further double/twin bedrooms with full ensuite bathrooms with full sized baths (these 2 bedrooms are not available when the chalet is rented to 8 people or less).

The second floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom is 25 m2 and has a double bed, balcony and ensuite bathroom (bath, separate shower, WC and sink). Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both double/twin and are 20m2 in size. All bedrooms have ample hanging and storage space for guests’ clothes and belongings. Bathroom 2 is located next to the bedrooms and offers a bath with shower, WC and sink.

The ground floor has the main entrance, heated boot rack, ski rack and shoe storage.

About Fiona + Q D'Arcy

We fell in love with the authentic village atmosphere of Morillon many years ago. We first owned a chalet here in 1999, and have now moved even closer to the centre, restaurants and lifts. Chalet Milou offers the perfect combination of luxury, tradition, modern comforts, a peaceful location, and proximity to all amenities and lifts.

Fiona + Q D'Arcy purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Fiona + Q D'Arcy chose Morillon

Chalet Milou has ample space to relax in with a large open living area with a wood fire, walk-round balcony and hot tub. It is impeccably built and decorated to offer you the highest standards of comfort and peace all year round.

What makes this chalet unique

One of the major benefits of Chalet Milou is that it is in a quiet wooded rural surrounding, and yet is just a short walk (400 metres) to the ski lifts, shops, bars and restaurants of Morillon village. It is also only 1 km from the beautiful village of Samoëns with its well know facilities. For the summer, the swimming lake, tennis courts and climbing park of Morillon are within 1 km. The ski bus stop is just 50 metres from our door and takes you a choice of 3 different Gondolas within 5 minutes (Vercland, Grand Massif Express , and Morillon).

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 adults and one baby staying for 4 nights with a late checkout on the last day allowing us to ski all day and then catch the last flight back to London from Geneva.

The two floors of the chalet that we used were very spacious and comfortable.

The kitchen is enormous and extremely well equipped which allowed us to cook with ease in the evening.

This is a beautiful chalet within walking distance of the town and the lift to Morillon 1100. We would definitely stay again.

A wonderfully relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Chalet Milou. The location is perfect: not too close to the centre of town, but also not too far away. We did not have a car, but managed to walk everywhere (or take the ski bus, with the bus stop being conveniently located at the end of the chalet's driveway). The immediate surroundings are very tranquil and relaxing, with tall trees, views of the mountains and a nearby stream.

The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you might need (even the knives are sharp!). We cooked almost every night and had plenty of space (the kitchen is huge). We particularly liked the Soda Steam :) and the fondue sets. The welcome pack of basics was also very handy after a long journey.

The hot tub was wonderful after a long day's skiing and was always lovely and hot.

The fire is super big and can really heat the entire chalet! There was a good supply of wood (the logs are huge) and ample kindling. The TV etc are all very good. The chalet was spotless.

Morillon is a lovely place and probably the friendliest French resort we have been. It has a butchers, patisserie, a small shop, a few restaurants and a couple of bars. Samoens is also nice and very "upmarket" (as is the area in general). It is a quick bus ride away, although we would recommend a car if you are thinking of frequenting Samoens (evenings especially).

The skiing is excellent. Morillon itself has a lot to offer and could keep us happy for the day and Samoens (lots of lovely blues and reds) is next door. The Grande Massif is easily accessible if you want more. Skiing to Flaine is quite straightforward.

In summary, we would highly recommend this chalet.

New Year at Chalet Milou

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say. We have just had the most fabulous weeks stay at Chalet Milou. We travelled as a Family of 7 (all adults) & 3 dogs and decided to do the drive down from Calais, which took an easy 8 hour's. The Chalet had everything we needed, warm, and stocked with all the home essentials, it was perfect. The Chalet is in an ideal location, about 10 mins (easy walk) to the Gondola in Morillion. We also walked to Samoen's, which took around 30 min (40 easy) in 2 feet of snow!!. The Chalet was roomy, clean and catered for our family perfectly and the hot tub was a welcomed addition after a hard day on the slopes. Big thank you to Fiona & Q who were so pleasant, helpful and easy to deal with. Highly recommended and look forward to booking again in the future.

Thank you!!

Beautiful chalet in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks staying in Chalet Milou with our two daughters, 6 and 8. The chalet was clean, spacious and very well equipped and we had a warm welcome from Ruth who showed us round. It was lovely relaxing on the balcony, especially in the hot tub, or playing badminton in the garden. It’s also worth mentioning that the wifi is fantastic!

The chalet is in a great location, just on the edge of the village of Morillon with a good selection of restaurants / bars, pharmacy and a fantastic bakery which we could easily walk to in the mornings for fresh bread and croissant. There’s lots to do in the area. In the village of Morillon there is Lac Bleu where there is a small beach and many activities for children. There are many cycling and walking routes from the doorstep and bikes can be hired in Morillon. The nearby town of Samoens has a big supermarket (5 min drive) and lots of lovely shops, bars and restaurants as well as a lake and a swimming pool complex which the kids loved!

We had an amazing summer holiday and I would definitely recommend the area and chalet to anyone!

Fantastic chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family (8 adults) in the Chalet Milou, for one week, and had a fabulous holiday there. The chalet was very spacious and was exceptionally well equipped, and the hot tub was wonderful at the end of an active day. Everything we needed was on hand and we cooked most nights in the kitchen. The chalet is in a quiet location, but close to lots of amenities and activities. We especially enjoyed the rafting, leaving from Sixt-Fer à-Cheval, and we also hired mountain bikes and descended down the mountains with a guide. Both were great fun. As you would expect, the scenery was magnificent and we even saw an avalanche whilst out walking. There are lots of walks available in the locality. The village of Morillon is small, but has restaurants and some shops, also the village of Samëon, which is nearby, is full of bars, restaurants and shops. It really had a great atmosphere. A great little place to have a beer at the end of the day. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Milou and would definitely consider going back. Tan and John Forsyth

Spacious, warm chalet in brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Milou was a wonderful find for us. The big open plan living area with log fire was a perfect cosy centre for our family. Most days we walked to the Morillon gondola, but some days we took the ski bus from the end of the drive either to the Samoëns or Vercland ski lifts.

The chalet is in a lovely quiet area surrounded by garden, trees and a stream.

Perfect chalet. Thank you Fiona and Q for a great ‎holiday.
