About the property


Morillon Les Esserts is a small village of modern apartment blocks on the ski slopes accessed by a modern road which is regularly snow ploughed and gritted. There is a large free public car park and all the facilities you need for your holiday are on the doorstep - well stocked Sherpa supermarket, bakery, ski hire shops, lift pass office, ski school, creche, restaurants and pub. The large, spacious and airy big apartment (82 sq m) is on the top 4th floor, accessible by lift, and has a SW balcony and aspect - a special feature is the double height sitting room with a wood burning stove. The hi-spec mid-sized (55 sq m) apartment faces onto the pistes with a great view. The comfortable and cosy little apartment (25 sq m) faces north east and has spectacular views of the mountains at the end of the valley. In summer Les Esserts transforms into an attractive summer location for mountain biking, walking, swimming, rafting, horse riding, tennis, parascending, golf and sightseeing.

About Anne-Marie and Graham Lush

We are Anne-Marie and Graham Lush who have had an apartment in Morillon Les Esserts since 1987, so coming up for 30 years. Our children started skiing here aged 2 and 5. The whole family look on Les Esserts as our second home! We retired in 2008 and are sharing our time between the ski season in Les Esserts, sailing in Greece and going back home to be with our family, including our lovely grand daughters.

Anne-Marie and Graham Lush purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Anne-Marie and Graham Lush chose Les Esserts

The story of how we came to buy our first apartment is too long for this space! It involves a hired apartment the previous year, no one to meet us, a night in the car with small children, helpful people at an apartment builder's sales office (nothing to do with the people letting the apartment to us) getting the door broken into, a new lock fitted, having a lovely holiday despite the unpromising start, delivering chocolates to say thank you, picking up some sales literature out of politeness... then buying off plan from home... so that we would always have keys to get in! We didn't once, but that's another story! We and our family and friends love the Les Esserts ski resort, being able to ski to the door, and that it is small and friendly but part of the large Grand Massif ski area.

What makes this apartment unique

The best things about our apartments, apart from them being modern, tastefully decorated, fully equipped and well looked after, is that they are very conveniently located - next to the ski slopes and ski lifts and next door to the little Sherpa supermarket, one of the ski hire shops and one of the restaurants. The other shops and restaurants are not much further away either, say 50 metres! It's a small, friendly resort - not for anyone who wants to go to noisy discos, clubs, etc...

average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Family friendly

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment 3 times, and hope to return next year. It is a large and airy apartment, with a small but adequate kitchen.

It is ideally situated for ski in ski out. There is a convenience store, ski hire shop, and restaurant, on the ground floor of the same building.

Good for families, not so much for lively après ski. Very efficient arrival and departure with friendly owners.
