About Chris Newton

My first ski holiday was a long time ago now, and as my children got to the age to learn to ski I went to Morillon on a recommendation. That was over 8 years ago now and I try and get back whenever the pennies will allow me to. My two daughters are quickly growing up now but we always have time to visit our little bolt hole!

Chris Newton purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Chris Newton chose Morillon

My first holiday in Morillon was over 10 years ago with my two young daughters. We had such a lovely holiday we kept going back and decided to buy something to 'escape' to. It really is a great place to stay, part of the Grand Massif there is so much to ski for every ability too.

It is very easy to get to, the drive from the airport is quick and easy and the location is brilliant, so close to all the amenities and more importantly the lift!

No waiting for a lift or ski bus just pick up your skis from the locker room and a 20 metre walk to get on the telecabine, it's that easy, even more worthwhile at the end of the day when your legs are tired!

The village is very quaint, typically French and never gets too busy.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

1. A great holiday, fab location, great snow, easy work of carrying the kids skis from the gondola to complex. Nice and clean, cosy accommodation our third stay, ideal- Mr and Mrs P Jackson, London SW1.

2. Superb snow all week, lovely and clean studio with everything we needed for a lovely self catering holiday. Our second visit to Studio Doina.- Mr and Mrs Robinson, Nottingham.

3. Everything on the doorstep, what a beautiful typically French village, unspoilt in so many ways, let's hope it stays that way- Mr and Mrs K Clarke, Warwick.

Great place to stay with good and easy access up the mountain

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location adjacent to the gondola ideal for younger for all age groups especially after a hard day skiing. Some good local restaurants and a few bars within a 2minute walk. Never stayed anywhere so convenient to a gondola station, a great location, had a fabulous holiday we will return

Enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely week in Morillon staying in Studio Doina. Great central position , next door to the telecabine up to Morillon 1100. Great view from the balcony. Comfortable, clean and well- equipped studio appartment. Shower was really powerful, best I have come across in holiday accommodation.

Great to have use of the garage and ski locker.

Chris, the owner very helpful.

Morillon is a lovely traditional Savoyard village, it is small but there are some good restaurants - La Puzze and La Carline serve good traditional mountain food. Lovely bar and restaurant by Lac Bleu.

The bigger village of Samoens is about 5 minutes away by car.
