About the property

Ski Chalet in Morzine, Rhone Alps - Haute Savoie, France - Swimming Pool In The Summer

Chalet Sauterelle offers luxury accommodation for a group of friends, or two families, in four bedrooms, sharing three bathrooms. Sauterelle is situated in Morzine which is fully connected to the huge Portes du Soleil ski region. With over 650km piste and virtually endless off piste there really is something for every grade of skier or boarder to tackle. For the non-skier there are many walks in the area, and lots of shops and restaurants to while away the time. New for the 2009/10 season is a 7 person hot tub situated to take advantage of the stunning views over Morzine. The chalet has two spacious living areas. A large open plan lounge, set around a wood burning fire, with dining area and kitchen plus a further sitting area on the huge mezzanine. Chalet Sauterelle is now available on an un-catered or catered basis. We have recently team up with a highly experienced chef who has worked in Morzine for many years who comes highly recommended.

Our second year staying at this lovely chalet for a weeks skiing and just as good as last year! We loved the hot tub, the views of the slopes and the warmth and comfort of the chalet. Thank you!

Skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely chalet with plenty of space for 2 families of 5 each. The hot tub was an added luxury. The snug was brilliant for the children. The walk to the bus is only 10minutes but along a busy road with no pavement or street lights so had to keep a close eye on the younger children. We had a fantastic time in a lovely resort and chalet. Ian (the owner) was fantastic with corespondances and very helpful. Mara the chalet manager helpful on phone when problem with dishwasher. Engineer called to fix it as well as both outside lights and 1 ring of hob but as over new year it would be happening after we left (this was no problem to us though). We had a great holiday.

Extremely Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Overall this was a very disappointing chalet. Cleanliness was the biggest issue, there were issues in every room. The tea-towels had a dreadful smell and not fit for purpose, we complained immediately and they were replaced but unfortunately the replacements were just the same. The towels were almost as bad and stained. Kitchen pots wand pans, utensils etc all had to be washed prior to use. There was quite a lot of dust and dirt around the chalet and generally felt unkempt.

The TV didn't work all week and when we reported this, we were told it was due to the weather, when it was a largely dry and bright week.

Worst of all was the hot tub, it looked very murky but we were told it was the type of chemicals they use there. Two of the children became very sick, one was almost hospitalised! Missing valuable days of skiing ..... Also two of the children sustained injuries from the hot tub where there were missing jet covers, leaving sharp edges. There was so much debris down the side of the tub, it looked like a major health hazard in itself !

Upon return the owner informed us that the tub looked the way it did because a previous tenant had put bubble bath into the tub. With that knowledge, it should have been out of bounds until it could be emptied! And we should have been informed...

On a general note, we found the chalet to small for 10 people and the advertised boot room was just a large cupboard with no lighting and no room to sit and put on/take off your boots etc.

Naturally we asked for a partial refund from the owner and eventually he offered a tiny discount if we used the chalet again! Which was unbelievable as everyone of our guests were so disappointed and pledged never ever to use this chalet again.

Owner's Response: We have been renting out our chalet for 10 years and this is the first complaint of this type we have received. Prospective guests will see from the number of happy guests who have left messages here that we attend to ALL concerns swiftly. However, where guests return home and then let us know that they will start 'taking action if they do not receive a substantial refund' it is difficult to address any of the concerns in a timely way. Things do occasionally go wrong - it would be disingenuous of us to suggest otherwise - our promise to you is that we will take action to resolve any matter brought to our attention during your stay as quickly as we can, even if this a dirty tea towel! You will see that this is the case by looking at the previous reviews and then decide for yourselves the value of this review, please feel free to email for further details if you would like to discuss anything further.

Nice property. We would stay again

  • 4 of 5

Nice property. Clean and tidy .good view of morzine. A few things didn't work but over all good and fare price. A bit of a trek up the hill on our bikes but kept us fit. Could of done with more storage for bikes we had to lock them in the our van as not enough room to put them in ski room. We would book again .

Excellent location with fantastic views overlooking Morzine. Facilities were clean and when we did need help to fix the dishwasher this was resolved immediately. The pool and hot tub were a real bonus and enjoyed by all. We will definitely be coming back!

As described - stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We went there for the etape du tour. It is a great chalet. It is a little bit out of town but this is absolutely no bother at all with a car. In fact, given my experience of Morzine at night, it is a bit of blessing. There is a communal pool and sunloungers, along with the option of a hot tub. The team in Morzine were really helpful as well.

The place was clean, well laid out and had everything we needed.

Highly recommended.
