About the property

Luxury Chalet by The Tasty Ski Company. Hot tub, log fire, Sky tv, Bose Player.

FULLY CATERED IN WINTER AND SELF-CATERED IN SUMMER. To book this chalet please go to our website. We will not accept bookings through the Owners Direct page:

The chalet is located 900 metres from the Morillon cable car and is a 7 minute walk from the centre of town. During winter we are 100 metres from the free ski shuttle bus stop but guests can also take advantage of our private driver service. The service is available between 8am – 10am and 3pm – 7pm. This service provides unlimited journeys into Morillon and Samoens during these times.

During summer guests can enjoy our breakfast terrace which catches the morning sun and also our outdoor barbecue. The chalet is south facing meaning the garden catches the sun throughout the day and into the early evening.

All bedrooms have a lovely range of Cole and Lewis bathroom products. Rooms can be configured as either Twins or King Size Doubles. All beds have super-comfy mattress toppers for that added bit of luxury.

The open plan living area is the ideal place to relax in front of a DVD or curl up in the corner and read a book. Guests can check emails on the free WiFi, watch English Sky TV on our plasma screen and listen to music on our Bose Player. Our large bootroom works as a ski room in the winter, (with enough space for 15 pairs of skis and 15 spaces on our heated boot rack) and a secure storage space for bikes and other gear in the summer. During winter and summer our guests can also use our brilliant outdoor hot tub.

Bedroom 1: Double/Twin Ensuite (bath with shower) plus sofa bed.

Bedroom 2: Double/Twin Ensuite (bath with shower).

Bedroom 3: Double/Twin Ensuite (shower) plus sofa bed.

Bedroom 4: Double/Twin Ensuite (shower) plus sofa bed.

At The Tasty Ski Company we run fully catered chalets during the winter meaning breakfast, afternoon tea, and dinner are included in the price. Vegetarian and children's menus can be provided on request. Our prices are inclusive of our house wines, beer and soft drinks. This is an unlimited service not just confined to meal times. All drinks are included for the duration of the stay – we do not have honesty bars where guests are required to pay a supplementary cost. During the summer the chalet is available on a self-catered basis for up to 12 people. Outside: Chalet Mautalent has a lovely outdoor terrace at the back of the house that catches the sun in both the morning and evening. Our guests in the summer often like to have their dinner there in the evening. The chalet has a garden with stone barbecue. Guests can help themselves to the wood at the side of the house. We have enough space at the front of the house to comfortably fit 3 cars.

amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chalet Mautalent at the end of this summer and we had a fantastic time. The chalet itself is beautiful - south facing so it gets the sun all day. The bedrooms are very spacious and everything was immaculately cleaned. The hot tub was brilliant and we used the lovely stone bbq pretty much every evening.

The location is perfect - particularly for families. We were 200 metres from the tennis courts, and about a 3 minute walk from the stunning Lac Bleu and all the activities around the lake.

We will be back!

petite déception vu le prix

  • 3 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour mais nous déplorons certains points qui sont, à nos yeux, très faciles à solutionner

- Absence quasi totale d'accueil. Une locataire du rez nous a ouvert et nous a juste souhaité un bon séjour. Nous avons dû nous débrouiller pour "découvrir" le gîte. Il y avait bien un petit manuel d'explication mais celui-ci était exclusivement en anglais !

- il y a une télévision mais le propriétaire n'a pas précisé dans l'annonce qu'aucune chaîne francophone n'était accessible !!!

- l'annonce stipule qu'il y a un jardin sauf que la pelouse (pleine de mauvaises herbes !) n'était pas tondue ce qui ne nous a jamais permis d'en profiter. Une haie taillée donnerait également une meilleure impression de la location !

- la table de jardin (en plastique) est cassée et donc là aussi nous n'avons jamais profiter d'un repas à l'extérieur

- la propreté de la cuisine était très approximative (tout était gras !) donc nous avons dû procéder à un nettoyage avant de nous installer.

- le chalet est prévu pour 15 personnes mais le matériel de cuisine est assez peu fourni

- l'eau du jaccuzzi devait être changée le samedi et ce n'est que le lundi que cela a été fait suite à un SMS de notre part

- Vu la mauvaise météo, nous avons signalé par SMS que nous allions quitter le chalet le vendredi à 11h et nous attendons toujours une réponse ou un signe de la part du propriétaire !!!!

Il faut malgré tout faire remarquer que les chambres et salle de bain étaient très propres et confortables. De plus le linge de maison est disponible en suffisance !

Bref nous n'avons pas passé un mauvais séjour mais nous avons le sentiment que le propriétaire ne vise pas forcément une clientèle francophone et que la location du chalet en été n'est pas prioritaire à ses yeux.

Geneva airport is a 50 minute drive from Chalet Mautalent. We can organise Geneva airport transfers for our guests. Please ask for details.


The chalet is situated just 200 metres from the local tennis courts, 200 metres from mini-golf, and 500 metres from the famous Lac Bleu (a big lake where you can go swimming). We are 800m from Morillon village centre, 2km from the town of Samoens, and 1km from Carrefour supermarket. There are excellent local markets in Samoens on Wednesday and in Morillon on Friday. There is also a small market at the roundabout 150m from our chalet on Friday morning, and a great rotisserie there on Sunday.

Further Details:

The town of Samoens dates back to the 13th century, with this "ville fleurie" being distinguished as one of the prettiest towns in France. There is a wonderful botanical garden that gives a panoramic view of the valley, a gothic church, medieval squares, timber-fronted patisseries and a 1940s cinema.

Morillon is a newer village but has become a base for a vast number of outdoor activities in the valley, centred around the "Lac Bleu," a beautiful lake that is just a 3 minute walk from Chalet Mautalent.

Summertime outdoor activities in the area include mountain biking, swimming, leisure parks, road cycling, rock climbing, horse-riding, trampolining, fishing, potholing, high- wire tree climbing, mountain trekking and paragliding.

For further information please see the Morillon tourism office website ( that is available in both French and English. Information on childcare is also available there, including details on childcare providers, entertainment, nurseries and nannies.
