Overview

About the property

Chalet Apartment Morzine, Haute-Savoie, (Portes du Soleil) 10 Mins Walk to Town And Ski Lifts For The Porte Du Soleil Region

La Vallee Verte as the name suggests is in a beautiful picturesque setting with stunning views over the valley. 10 minutes from town with ski bus stop right outside the front door, whether you go to ski, snowboard, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, or for mountain biking (VTT) and summer activities, of which there are numerous, you will enjoy your stay and want to come back to Morzine again and again. Morzine has excellent facilities and can cater from non-skiers during the winter season. Summer season has too many attractions to list both in the immediate area lakes and activities, and further a field including Mer de Glace, Geneva and Lake Leman and the idyllic medieval town of Yvoire to name just a few.

About Roy O'Brien

Roy and Sheila live in a small village near Guildford Surrey with our 3 children and Alfie our Gordon Setter, we have been travelling with our dog(s) for the last 16 years or so. The children look forward to every visit to the region, summer or winter and are making friends and improving their French each trip. The air is great the food is great the views are great and don't get me started on the skiing unless you have a long time! But remember Morzine is a fantastic base for the summer too...walking, mountain biking (VTT), golf, paragliding, horse-riding to name just a few

Roy O'Brien purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Roy O'Brien chose Portes du Soleil area

We all love Morzine and feel privileged to be a small part of this wonderful area. After visiting the town for years we bought here in 1999. We have grown to think of Morzine as "home from home" and everyone is always so friendly. You can never run out of things to see and do and the mountains never cease to impress and inspire.

What makes this apartment unique

Ideally situated a few minutes walk from the town centre and 5 minutes drive from the lake/Ardent. Over the last 10 years we have improved the accommodation and have added everything needed for a great stay. We still have lots of exciting plans and want to continue to sympathetically enhance the property with our own ideas for example future works may include a sauna for the basement, watch this space!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great pad, great skiing, don't want to leave. - Rob H. Newcastle.



We very much enjoyed our week in Morzine and our stay in your apartment. We were impressed by how well it was kitted out, it felt like home from home. I wish we had discovered Morzine when my children were still learning to ski as it is a perfect family resort. - Sue W. East Wussex

Excellent chalet, well located

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this chalet, which is very well maintained, well equipped and comfortably accommodated three couples.

The location is good with easy access via the free ski bus to Ardent, and the Avoriaz ski area. Morzine centre, with all it's bars and restaurants, is a short 10-15 minute walk.

The owner Roy went above and beyond before our stay to ensure we had all the information we needed, even providing a short history of the local area.

I throughly recommend this chalet, and would stay there again.

Great Value, very helpful owner

  • 4 of 5

Morzine is a lovely resort especially for skiing.

The apartment was great value, and as described. A short 15 minute walk into town puts you right by all the restaurants and shops.

The owner has excellent communication and was very helpful and accommodating.

All in a wonderful trip.

A great week at Roy's!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Roy's chalet in Morzine. The chalet is clean, well looked after and warm after a long day on the hills, with an excellent shower & bath, equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The chalet is a 10-15 minute walk to the Super Morzine lift but we found that the bus takes you from the Ridge Hotel next door up to Ardent, and from there to Avoriaz, so we did that most days to get to the snow. Roy was very helpful and provided all the information we needed before we left, such as lessons, restaurants etc. We would highly recommend the flat which is great value.

Excellent ski chalet

  • 4 of 5

The chalet was exactly as described, well equipped and very spacious. It was a fair walk to the ski lifts and shops, but was away from the noise of the town. A car was essential for shopping or collecting weary skiers.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jim for your comments and we continue to add to the equipment and furnishings to ensure the stays are even more comfortable and enjoyable; remember the walk back makes the beer more deserved:) Roy
