About Charlotte Gretton

We are a mountain-mad couple who bought the apartment in 2010 and stayed in it for the whole season 2010-11 while renovating it to be a bright, cosy and practical space. Initially we used it with friends who enjoyed making the most of the apartment’s proximity to town as we crawled home post Apri Ski, but now we take our two young boys who are just starting to get into mountain life and enjoy the novelty of sharing the bunk room.

Charlotte Gretton purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Charlotte Gretton chose Portes du Soleil area

We looked at loads of apartments when planning to buy in Morzine but this ones town centre location was what really drew us to it. The walk home from the slope in ski boots is never fun but luckily it's only about 5 min in ski boots from both super morzine and le pleney.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your apartment was great, perfect size, great location & lovely decor. We were extremely happy with your place, everything was exactly as we would like." -Matt, July 2011

Amazing Apartment, Location First Class

  • 5 of 5

Having spent alot of time in Morzine Im pleased to have found this beaut of an apartment.

4 of us stayed here for the week.

Perfect location being a 5 min walk into the middle of town and better still for walking home after a few beers!

The apartment was so well kitted out there wasnt anything extra we would have needed.

Kitchen and open plan lounge/dinning room worked out brilliant for cooking drinking and chatting not forgetting the great view of the Pleney.

Having a full sized kitchen was a huge plus which meant we werent restricted to the usual 2 hob and weird micro oven you normally get!! Trust me having stayed in lots of apartments in the alps this kitchen is above and beyond even a dish washer!

Beds were comfy including the sofa bed plenty of hanging space in the main bedroom too.

Great TV with usb connection for connecting hard drive with films on. Wifi was really good too.

Oh god an apartment with a bath too! Rare find but so worth it after the old legs have been worked hard!

Outside balcony which is a little sun trap in the mornings.

Fantastic parking and great access.

Really cannot recommend this apartment enough, now I have found it I wont be looking for anything else.

Looking forward to returning, loved this place and if I coukd find a carbon copy Id buy it.

Les Cimes - Morzine

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much.......our stay in Les Cimes was fantastic! It was the first time we had taken our 3 boys skiing so wanted somewhere that wasn't too far from the slopes, ski school and the centre of Morzine. This apartment ticked all those boxes! 10 mins walk to Le Pleney and another couple to ski school and 6-7 minutes to the centre of town. Could not have been better! Light, airy but cosy at the same time this little apartment looks out onto the main road but also has the Le Pleney lift and slope in it's sights. This was great for watching the night skiers come down. The apartment itself is small but actually big enough for 5 of us, we didn't feel cramped or on top of each other at all. Our two youngest (9 & 5) enjoyed sleeping in the bunk beds and our oldest (12) was more than happy sleeping on the pull out bed in the living room. The apartment was clean with some cleaning products under the sink provided to use during our stay. The cooking facilities were more than adequate and the bathroom and toilet were again nice and clean. A little balcony overlooking the side of the building was very welcome after a hard days skiing.

The boot room is accessed downstairs where a locker is available. This is really only big enough for the skis and poles so your boots will need to be kept in the apartment. So our stay was very positive but i would like to mention a few points that i think you should maybe address....

1) We paid for sheets, duvet covers etc but they did not fit the beds well. The duvet covers were massively oversized and it was awkward making the pull out bed up for sleeping. You also need to think about supplying tea towels. We had to use a small hand towel from the bathroom.

2) A dustpan and brush would be handy. The broom supplied wasn't great for sweeping.

3) It's always nice to come back to a warm apartment but this was too much. The main long radiator under the window was incredibly hot the whole time we were there and i couldn't work out how to turn it down.

4) More storage for clothes as there is none in the bunk bed room. We had to improvise and use the large lower drawer under the oven and another lower drawer over on the end.

That said these are minor points and would definitely not discourage us from staying again. In fact you may well be hearing from us soon.

Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

Regards

The Turner family - stayed Feb 11th to Feb 18th

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Only a five minute walk from everything you need. It's not big but certainly big enough for a family. Don't come here expecting to cook Xmas dinner for 12, but you can eat out every night in a different place and stroll back in a few minutes. Certainly recommend it.

Fab Apartment, Owner and Location

  • 5 of 5

I was compelled to write this review after staying at this brilliant apartment in Morzine - particularly after Charlotte (very nice lady, knowledgable and helpful on the phone) was thankful for my offline feedback about our fab stay as it seems there is one review which seems completely off the mark (one star????)

Anyway, onto our stay - me, my wife and two kids; 13 and 17.

The apartment is on the ground floor - which was brilliant as we had a load of heavy bags for a week skiing - the flat is small but perfectly formed with everything you need for self catering and bright and airy due to the double aspect windows which give you a great view of the Pleney slope (which is only a 3 or 4 minute walk down the road). There was also a very welcome bottle of wine waiting for us - thanks :)

The kitchen is brilliant - we cooked a Christmas lunch in there with ease - four ring hob and full sized oven at a sensible height, microwave, and a ton of utensils....I could go on, but it certainly so much more than I'm used to in a ski apartment (I.e two rings and a microwave).

The sofa was comfy and the setup of the table and TV meant kids were happy watching TV (my son hooked up a USB drive to the TV so he and my daughter could argue about which of their favourite shows to watch) while my wife and I played cards at the table and drank wine in the evening. WiFi was good too when one or other of us lost interest in TV or games.

If you want to sit out on the balcony, it is a little snug (only two of us would have been able to sit out there), not an issue for us as we didnt want to use it.

Overall - a real gem of an apartment at a great price, especially considering it's great location. Will certainly be returning!

Wonderful Morzine

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to this apartment and have just booked for June again. Booking was easy and owner was very helpful with any queries. We found the location is perfect for all amenities yet it has wonderful views and easy parking. The excellent apartment is clean and comfortable with a kitchen that has everything you need, including a full oven, a 4 ring hob and even a dishwasher. Actually, we mainly ate in restaurants just a short walk down the road. Talking of walking, this is a fabulous place for walks and plenty of ski lifts so you don’t have to do the uphill slog. Also, there are indoor and outdoor swimming pools in Morzine. Cannot recommend this apartment enough and can’t wait to return.

half term skiing

  • 1 of 5

A good location but disappointed with the apartment as bedrooms very small and little space to put clothes etc. Kitchen could be better equipped. I would not recommend this apartment for a family of 5 because of lack of space and was quite noisy at night with traffic and people walking back from the town.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were not happy with your stay. As with most French Ski Apartments the flat is compact and this is reflected in the description with the sq metres being listed as the first thing about the apartment under property description. The pictures and reasonable price also reflect this. I'm am a little perplexed that you say the kitchen is ill equipped as we fitted it out with full oven, four ring hob and dishwasher and which is rare for similar properties, but I will follow up with our agent to check that they have been replacing broken plates etc. Morzine is a lively town with great apriski and the flats great location close to town does occasionally mean that you may hear merry holiday makers or seasonares. One of the advantages of booking though ownersdirect is the ability to talk directly to the owner and find out if the property is suitable for your needs. We have had many familys and groups who have had done this, have had a great time and returned to stay again.
