About Debbie Porter

We are a family living the UK with family in Morzine too. We all love our skiing holidays and all of our three children have begun to ski from 3 years old. Having a base in Morzine enables us to get out there both in Winter and Summer to explore the whole Portes du Soleil area.

Debbie Porter purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Debbie Porter chose Portes du Soleil area

We brought our property as we love Morzine and it has a lot to offer. It's a very traditional town with a modern twist and has a large ski area on offer. There are challenging golf courses in the Summer and a large outdoor pool with children's play pool as well as extensive mountain biking trails. New and open for Jan 2012 is a new indoor pool, children's pool, saunas and steam room. We wanted somewhere as a base for us when visiting family so are not interested in profit and it took us 2 years to finally take the plunge. We offer very reasonable prices for the area as we'd prefer that someone else can enjoy our lovely chalet and enjoy their holiday too.

What makes this chalet unique

Our chalet is a great location with everything within reach by foot or bus. It is well looked after by our family who live in Morzine and we pride ourselves in offering the comforts of home. Crisp bed linen and large fluffy towels are provided with hairdryers for your convenience. A library of DVDs, English freeview TV, free wifi and board games can help while away the cosy evenings or maybe the local restaurants and bars can entice you out. You will find our alpine home very homely and it will meet your needs perfectly.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"A very comfortable chalet situated close to all of the main amenities, including gondola stations, yet quietly situated away from the main thoroughfares.

Debbie was most helpful with advice before we travelled, and Kev was equally helpful once we had arrived.Supermarkets and restaurants are within a short walking distance and the kids (14 & 11) really enjoyed their ski lessons with the resort-based BASS instructors ("best lessons ever").

We have no criticisms to offer and can only thoroughly recommend this chalet as an excellent base for your holiday in Morzine"

A perfect base for a winter break

Chalet le Riez was a great find! The owners and local contact were very helpful and responded quickly to queries. The chalet was comfortable, warm, well equipped and ideally situated. We would certainly try to book it again for a ski trip based in Morzine..

Comfortable chalet in great location

  • 4 of 5

This a small but cosy chalet with enough space for our family of 5 including 3 teenagers. Very comfortable bedrooms, and good kitchen and dining facilities. Only a few yards from ski bus stop, which gets you to the main lifts in Morzine. Supermarket also very near. On a very quiet road, zero traffic noise. Flat 10-minute walk into town centre.

Excellent location. Well-equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week in Morzine in August to go walking. Excellent base with lots of walks in surrounding areas but don't expect the local walking guides to always be up to date, quite a few of the routes have changed or seem difficult to find.

The apartment is on two levels, compact and cosy. Clean and well-maintained. Owner was helpful. Kitchen and bathroom well-equipped and as described on the website. A washing machine for dirty clothes, however, would have been useful.

Outdoor and indoor swimming pool complex is excellent.

Geneva is worth a day trip, only about an hour's drive away if you need a break from walking/cycling.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we try to be as helpful as we can. A washing machine would be useful, I admit, however unfortunately there is no space. The laundrette is very close though. Hope to have you stay again soon.
