About the property

Apartment in Morillon, Rhone-Alpes, France - Peaceful Location, 5-10 Minutes Walk To The Cable Car And A Ski Bus Stop Outside The Door

A recently renovated alpine apartment in a traditional Savoyard farmhouse. The apartment is in a peaceful and picturesque hamlet very close to the centre of Morillon village (10 minutes walk). Morillon is part of the Grand Massif skiing area. The apartment is 500m (5-10 minute walk) from the Morillon cable car, which operates in summer and winter for skiing, hiking and mountain biking. There is a ski bus stop outside the door. The apartment has a good sized living/dining area, 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4-6 people. There is free wi-fi internet access. Morillon village has a good range of shops, cafes/bars and restaurants. The nearby lake, beach and recreation area (10 minutes walk) are perfect for families with kids in the summer. The mountain views from the apartment are stunning and hiking and biking trails are accessible from the door. It is possible to ski to the door if you don't mind an off-piste finish!

About Mary Kirkbride

I live in Morillon with my partner, Jamie, and our two children, Juliet and Cameron. Jamie and I have been living in this part of the French Alps for 10 years. We live and work here all year round. In the summer we run a mountain biking holiday business, Ride the Alps. In the winter Jamie is a snowshoe guide and igloo builder.

Mary Kirkbride purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Mary Kirkbride chose Morillon

Morillon is a village in the Haute Giffre valley, also part of the Grand Massif. This is one of the most beautiful areas in the French Alps. It has managed to maintain a traditional alpine village feel whilst also being a very successful summer and winter mountain resort. We love mountain sports - mountain biking, skiing, trail running, climbing etc. - and this is the ideal place to do all of these things. It's also a wonderful place for family life. There are heaps of activities on offer for kids all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is just 500m from the Morillon cable car (a 5-10 minute walk) so you can get up the mountain very easily in summer or winter with skis, mountain bikes or on foot. There is also a ski bus stop just outside the door which links you to the other villages in the valley. The village centre is also a 5 minute walk away with it's range of shops, café/bars and restaurants. The beautiful alpine village of Samoens is just 3km away. Samoens has an outdoor pool complex and plays host to the biggest market in the Haute Savoie on Wednesday mornings. You can get straight onto the hiking and biking trails from the door of the apartment and if you don't mind a bit of off-piste, you can ski back to the door.

Very pleasant apartment, good for a mountain biking holiday around Samoens

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and everything well maintained, we only used the kitchen area for breakfast but it seemed well equipped. It was very spacious as only two of us were staying there, the second bedroom has bunk beds and would be most suitable for children (or just one adult). Outdoor space is limited but we were able to keep our mountain bikes indoors overnight. The village is a short walk away and we found a couple of good restaurants (our favourite was La Puzze).

Comfortable and well sited

  • 4 of 5

Less than 10 mn walk to get everywhere (shops, restaurants, cable car, ski bus). The appartment is very comfortable with great equipment. (dishwasher !) Beds are ready when you arrive. The owners live just on the other side of the house, they are helpful but very discreet. There are 2 real bedrooms (when 4 people, no one sleeps in the kitchen). The bathroom is small but the shower is warm and delightful. Good to know: The room with bunk beds has no window (teenagers may sleep until noon). Cosy living/dining room. Tv and DVD player, Wi-fi available. Parents with 2 teenagers everyone enjoyed the stay. The area is wonderful with plenty of activities very close in all seasons.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apartment. Great location in a traditional part of the village, yet still close to the village centre. Everything we could want was in the apartment, even good wifi reception for my computer mad son. Very comfortable beds, decent shower and very warm (a must!). Found it easier to catch the ski bus, which stops virtually outside, than drive to any ski lifts. Had a lovely holiday with some great skiing.
