About C Cope

We are an English family with three children from London. This is our holiday home.

C Cope purchased this chalet in 2010

Why C Cope chose Flaine - Grand Massif

The Giffre is a beautiful valley, all year round. Wonderful, family-friendly skiing in the winter and in the summer warm temperatures and spectacular scenery. There is so much to do - all sorts of outdoor pursuits are available. Equally, it can be a great place to escape to for some peace and relaxation. Both Morillon and Samoens are very pleasant towns, full of character and extremely welcoming to tourists.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is modern, yet cosy because of the underfloor heating. We love the outdoor space at the chalet too - there is a lot more than in most equivalent properties. Our children can run around quite safely outside without us having to be concerned (although young children should always be supervised as there is a mountain stream which runs alongside the property and the main road is not far either). We love the fact that all the conveniences are just a few minutes drive away and access to the chalet is easy in winter, as it is on the flat of the valley. There are stunning views in both directions and we get the sun all day long.

Chalet Clarine - 5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chalet Clarine for a family holiday with our now adult children. There were 7 of us in total.

The Chalet is spacious and accommodated us all very comfortably. It is warm, and spotlessly clean, and a real help to have linen, towels and the in out cleaning service provided. Bedrooms are a good size and well equipped.

The kitchen is large and everything works well, there is every kitchen implement you need if you want to fully self cater, but there are restaurants around if you wish to eat out and Boulangerie Tiffanie in Morillion for compulsory croissants and pain chocolat at breakfast!

The beds are super comfy, showers powerful and hot, also to have 2 bath tubs available is just fantastic after a long days skiing.

Although we did not use it all the time, having the TV with English Channels was useful along with the various different electronic games. We preferred the family games and played Monopoly for the first time in years!

The location is great being around an hours drive from Geneva and its very easy to find. The centre of Morillion and the gondola is around a 1 km away and then its only a 10 minute drive to Samoens.

Chalet Clarine provided us with the perfect base for our holiday, we were able to relax altogether in the evenings and spend quality time together which is sometimes lacking in hotels.

I can highly recommend this chalet and would at some point in the future return.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous chalet cannot fault it at all. Six adults stayed here February 2016.

Chalet celan and comfy with lots of board games, puzzles and electric computer games and a computer!

You will need a car really to get from a - b and it is just off the main road into Morilion so not really walkable. We did have a car and went to the bowling in Samoans which was great fun and good food.

Didn't eat out apart from bowling night as my daughter is an amazing cook and just loved the kitchen in the chalet so cooked every night, played games, watched tv and had wine at home!

Fabulous holiday cannot complain about anything, well done Claire and Keith I do believe you thought of everything for the winter skier (maybe a larger ski dryer cupboard as there was six adults but thats it).

ANOTHER GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Chalet Clarine and it did not disappoint, yet again!

The home from home feel of this chalet makes it our firm favourite. The good quality furniture, fixtures and fittings, plus a well equipped kitchen means we can comfortably slob out after a solid day's skiing in the Grand Massif. The chalet is always clean and warm and is situated in a great spot, just outside of the village of Morillon. There are two large supermarkets within a 10minute drive and plenty of restaurants, cafes and bistros for those who do not enjoy cooking. Claire, the owner, is always communicative and helpful; the booking process always smooth and hassle-free.

We drive to the chalet, which takes 7 hours from Calais with one short stop, (the Sunday arrival helps avoid the "Saturday changeover day traffic"), as we prefer to have our car in resort when skiing. However, the Grand Massif ski bus (included in your lift pass) stops just up the road, so a car is certainly not a necessity. This year we also chose to drive to the nearby Portes du Soleil. It took about 15-20 mins and opened up a further, huge ski area for our enjoyment!

We have never been to the chalet in the summer but can confirm that the surrounding area is stunning in winter - we can only imagine it is more so when the snow has melted and the sun is out!

Thanks for another great stay and see you same time next year Chalet Clarine!

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans ce beau chalet. Tout l'équipement nécessaire est là, nous n'avons manqué absolument de rien. Le chalet se situe à 5 bonnes minutes des remontées mécaniques de Morillon avec un parking très pratique. Le jardin est idéal pour faire des batailles de boules de neige ou des bonhommes de neige avec les enfants. Le chalet est propre est très bien aménagé et conforme à la description de l'annonce !

Les propriétaires sont très réactifs aux messages.

A réserver sans hésitation !
