Amazing Chalet! Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5

12 friends stayed and we had an amazing week. The chalet is beautiful and located in an ideal location just a small walk from morrilon village. The kitchen was well equipped to prepare meals for all of us and we had plenty of space in the dining room. There is plenty to do with a games room and a great selection of board games. There is a regular bus to the ski lifts for the fantastic grand massif area, with the best thing being the hot tub to relax in after a long days skiing. Would recommended this place to anyone, thank you Ed!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

House is great - very well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living spaces, great garden with hot tub. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning, looking at the mist burn off down the valley. The area is ideal for family holidays - whitewater rafting, aerial adventures, a swimming lake, cable cars are great for getting high up for walks.

Superb stay in Morillon

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay at Chalet Almandine. We had read good reviews on other sites and were not disappointed when we booked ourselves. We knew the area well and the chalet is well situated for skiing. There is a regular ski bus but we had a hire car which simplifies things. The chalet manager was so helpful and met us as soon as we were in Morillon. The chalet is well equipped with comfy beds, towels, drying room and hot tub. All the essentials were in the chalet and we enjoyed a really relaxing week. There are several eateries in the vicinity but we stuck to the boulangerie and pizzeria situated just around the corner from the chalet. We would highly recommend this chalet...... just not the same week as we want it!!!
