About the property

Chalet in Lac du Montriond, Nr. Morzine, Haute-Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Peaceful Location; 4 Mins Drive From Ardent Cable Car; Ski Bus Stops Outside; Swimming In Lake

Chalet du lac is a beautiful lakeside chalet 7 minutes from the centre of Morzine and 4 minutes drive (or bus stops outside the chalet) to the telecabin for skiing. The living space is over 120m2 sleeping up to 8 (10 including young children), with two double bedrooms, a family room (with a double and a single bed), and a mezzanine (with a single and a double futon), two bathrooms, private parking to the side and a sun-terrace in front of the chalet. A large open plan split level sitting room with rustic wooden beams, deep sofas and a cosy wood-burning stove. The chalet has been furnished to cater for all modern comforts whilst the antique skis, cartwheels, dried flowers and carved wooden fretwork retain a rustic alpine charm. At an altitude of 1072m lies Lac de Montriond, a jewel in the mountains of the Haute Savoie. The water is perfectly clear and the surrounding forests breathe with life. The area is renowned for its natural beauty, and is protected from deforestation and development by the national trust.

About caroline bray

Chalet du Lac is a family home and we have always felt very privileged to own it given its location. Dominic and I have 3 children so we can certainly help you with catering for children as well as adults. We have skied the whole region, Dominic is a very good skier and he never gets bored skiing in the same region year after year as there is so much variety. I am an average skier and feel very safe and enjoy the skiing very much. In the summer we really live the alpine life! Fresh air and lots of it day after day living outdoors and with so many child friendly activities on offer. Our boys come totally alive in the alpine air and are busy 'doing' all the time!

We hope the chalet makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive.

caroline bray purchased this chalet in 2004

Why caroline bray chose Montriond

We wanted somewhere within easy reach from Geneva airport but with a really good skiing variety and somewhere you would want to go in winter and summer.

We found the property completely by chance whilst researching the area and sitting by Lac du Montriond feeling so jealous of the few people who loved around it! On leaving we spotted a for sale sign and we didn't even need to look inside before we knew it was perfect! It was an a sculptures shops and cafe when we bought it and we tirelessly changed it into the wonderful home it is today for everyone to enjoy. The views are breathtaking from every window of a lake that changes so dramatically with the seasons.

What makes this chalet unique

Ski bus stops outside

Very easy access to huge region of ski slopes

Supermarket 5 mins drive away

Restaurants on the doorstep

The peacefulness and calm of the lake

Close enough to Morzine for everything you need but far enough away for some seclusion and uniqueness

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a wonderful time at Chalet du Lac, with plenty of good snow, idyllic location and great accommodation. It was our first family ski holiday and found the chalet location ideal. Everyone was catered for, with the Ardent lift a short bus ride away or a quick drive into Morzine or Les Gets. Caroline and Dominic were very helpful, and their recommendations for ski hire and lift passes were excellent. Looking forward to next year!"

"We had a great time in the Chalet and in Morzine, the kids loved the summer mountain activities, rafting, canoeing, para-sailing, summer

sledges..... etc. A real change from lying by a pool in the med. I personally loved the view of the lake in the early morning, when we had it to ourselves, even encouraged me to go jogging for the first time in years. Now the kids are nagging me to take them back in the winter for a skiing holiday!"

Chalet For Summer And Winter Seasons With Incredible Views
average rating of 4.0 based on 3 reviews


  • 4 of 5

Loin de la foule des appartements au pied des pistes, le chalet est rustique mais idéalement situé avec l'accès à la navette gratuite qui mène au téléphérique en 4 mn et le grand parking situé juste en face. Il est spacieux et la grande pièce à vivre est agréable. Ce chalet est idéal pour 4 ou 5 personnes avec les deux grandes chambres. la 3ème chambre est plus petite et difficile d'accès. Nous avons également apprécié la rapidité de réponse de la propriétaire.

Petit chalet bien situé au bord du lac de Montbriond pour les randonneurs et à côté de l'arrêt de la navette pour les skieurs. Nécessité d'avoir une voiture pour l'accès aux commerces.
