Wonderful week in Morillon

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week in Chalet Aravis. House is perfect for 2 families - lots of room and very well-equipped. We only went out once to eat as it was so nice to stay in at the Chalet!!!

Only 5 minutes walk to lift, shops and restaurants. Downstairs drying room dried our ski gear when the elements took a turn for the worse. House was clean, warm and cosy.

Clare - thank you for being so helpful when booking.....

Lovely skiing - highlight was the Marvel green run (and the Igloo restaurant on it!).

One top tip - If you want to go night tobbaggoning - book the tickets by 8:30am...they go super fast!!!

We all had a fantastic week and hope to return very soon.

Fabulous property, where we feel completely at home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at chalet aravis on a number of occasions and love it.

Clare and John the owners are always so helpful and informative about the region.

We love coming back to a roaring fire when we leave the slopes, to have a glass or two of wine or beer, relaxing in the lounge area, before sitting down as a family after preparing our dinner.

The chalet is big enough for our two families of four, with enough bathrooms to please everyone.

Clean and roomy chalet, which we love, the supermarket is a 5 minute drive away, and the telecabin and car park a minutes drive in the morning.

We most definitely are coming back, again.....

Superb Chalet Fabulous area

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay here, after a four year break.

It still held the charm we warmly remembered, and did not dissapoint. Coming back to a roaring fire after a day on the cold slopes is brilliant, and to relax with a glass of red.

All is wonderfully spacious and clean for two families of four, and with a minute drive to the lift takes away any stress. We will look to book again for 2018, many thanks again Clare.

Perfect for a large family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (two adults, four children) stayed in February, 2017, for a week at Chalet Aravis, Morillon. Long before we arrived, the owners were unfailingly charming and generous with their time; they could not have done more to answer our questions about the property and the surrounding area. We have not always been so fortunate, so this represented significant added value. The house is large and well laid out, with everything a family might need for an easy and comfortable holiday on the slopes. The kitchen is large and well stocked, and the living room very comfortable. I suspect the TV is older than the house, which shouldn’t bother anyone unless they are travelling to France specifically to watch television. The heating system and wood-burner are superb, and there are lots of balconies, which open onto glorious views. The property is perfectly situated, and easy to find, with Morillon only a short walk, and two minutes by car. The Carrefour (Samoens) is around four miles away, and no less easy to find. All in all, it’s a perfect holiday destination, and ideal for families with children. Highly recommended.

A great base for our summer holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, we had a fabulous time whilst staying at Chalet Arivas.

As a family of 5 we were very comfortable in the chalet with lots of space, but I would happily stay there with a larger group as the rooms were all generously sized. The chalet is well equipped and had everything we needed.

This is the first time we have stayed in the alps in the summer. We chose Morillon on a friend's recommendation as a good base for families and were not disappointed. The scenery is stunning and we found lots to do in Morillon itself and the surrounding area.

Wonderful Chalet! Very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Excellent communication with owners.

Well located, just a short walk to the ski lift. Morillion is a very nice village which has all the facilities you need. The ski area is extensive and suits all abilities.

We would definitely return.
