The contemporary designed and furnished apartment sleeps 4/6 within 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed arrangement. En-suite bathroom to bedroom 1 and a separate bathroom and separate wc.

The apartment benefits from a complete refurbishment programme which was completed in December 2014 in readiness for the new 2014/2015 ski season and the summer of 2015. The apartment is receiving high acclaim from all our guests since the refurbishment, for comfort, location and the high standard of finish, decor and design/layout. (see guest reviews) We are now getting repeat bookings from previous guests.

About Andrew Spink

I live in North Wales with my wife & two teenage daughters & we have a pet Tibetan Terrier dog (Roxy), chickens & ducks and love the outdoor life.

We used to own our own landscaping business which we operated from our office some 5 minutes from home. We are now both 'retired' and spend time in France, Portugal and the UK (and other far flung places of the globe!!!).

We both love driving Audi cars (but currently I have an Jaguar F Type for a change!). We live in the countryside here in the UK & our house in the Algarve is in a similar type of country location.

We are a very active family & love skiing, walking, running, swimming, cycling, golf and the outdoor life.

We love living part of the year in France and enjoying the cuisine, culture, scenery, wine & joie de vie!!

The apartment really suits us as we can easily walk to shops, bars & restaurants within minutes.

Andrew Spink purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Andrew Spink chose Morzine

We had been skiing for many years in the French alps and eventually decided to buy a property in which we could use it, both for winter holidays and also to enjoy during the summer months.

The check list of priorities also included close proximity to ski lifts; ability to walk into a decent town with shops, bars and a good selection of restaurants; sunny aspect (south/south west facing) quite location; close proximity to Geneva airport; good snow record and plenty of summer leisure / recreational activities.

Where better than Morzine!!

Oh, and a town that frequently achieves the presence of the Tour de France (Stage finish here in July 2016!!!)

Well, Morzine ticks all the boxes and the apartment location is terrific - many customers report it as amazing, especially the views of Pleney!

What makes this apartment unique

A very conveniently located apartment within Morzine with the ability to walk into town within several minutes, and to Super Morzine Lift which is only 350 metres away.

Fully refurbished to a very high specification ready for December 2014, therefore the apartment is modern and very well furnished in complete contrast to many of the dour old 1970's and 1980's apartments on offer throughout the French alps.

The apartment offers an en-suite bedroom with shower and wc; a separate wc and separate bathroom with bath/shower over and washing machine.

Tastefully decorated with high quality soft furnishings for discerning summer and winter customers.

Car parking and cave for bikes (MTB's and cycles).

Home from home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second stay in Andrew's apartment for our MTB holiday. It's just perfect and the washing machine was a must! Had a great view of the Harley Days ride outs!

We do just love this accommodation and always dread going back home. Thanks again.

Lovely place

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is ideally located a short walk from the Super Morzine lift and, therefore, town. It is also in the bus route to Montriond should you want to access Lindarets bowl that way. If you are hiring skis and boots, there is a ski hire place just by the Super Morzine lift and you can leave your gear there overnight if you have hired from this place, making it even more convenient. The apartment has been thoughtfully and very nicely refurbished. The owner was incredibly helpful at all times and accessible when needed. I would not hesitate to return to the apartment. Highly recommend.

Fabulous stay in a very well appointed apartment x

  • 5 of 5

The listing was very accurate. The apartment was superb. Very well appointed & clean.

It is situated in a perfect location close to all amenities, with stunning views.

The owner was very helpful & friendly.

We particularly enjoyed going up the lifts to walk in the mountains. We also visited Lake Geneva, Yvoire, Mont Blanc with the Montenvers glacier - do book ahead on-line for Mont Blanc/Montenvers & arrive very early in the morning - it was stunning but lots of queuing involved.

I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends & family.

Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Totally recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fantastic one week skiing holiday in this property. From the first enquiry to handing over the keys, the owners were extremely helpful with every query we had.

The property was in an excellent location, very clean, quiet and well maintained (recently refurbished to a high standard).

We would certainly recommend this property and return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and comments. Really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and that you found the whole experience such that you would return again in the future. I do try to ensure that I engage with guests to assist them before they arrive in the resort with such things as ski passes, ski hire, transfers and shopping etc. This ensures that the apartment is not just a place to rent, but that there is added value that guests are also buying into when they rent the apartment. Look forward to having you back as a guest in due course.

brilliant

  • 4 of 5

This must be one of the best locations in Morzine. Nicely decorated and perfect for a family of 4. a close walk to the center of town, yet still away from the noise. Once you are there there is no need for a car.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. As you say the apartment is in an ideal location and most of our guests comment on the location and aspect - south facing and also great view across the Pleney Slope! Great for watching the ESF candlelit decent and firework displays etc. Pleased the apartment suited your needs - it works very well for a family with the en-suite, separate wc and separate bathroom and you can literally ditch the car whilst you are there!

The owners have presented a very comfortable and well appointed apartment for us to enjoy. Conveniently placed to access either theMorzime or Avoriaz area and with fantastic views and sunny aspect it is close to supermarkets for provisions and also easy access to the town. A good place to stay and we will return.

There are three supermarkets in Morzine and a larger Carrefour just 5 minutes' drive away in St Jean D'Aulps. There are banking facilities/ATM's within a 5 minute walk. The main leisure centre is a 3 minute walk away which includes two ice rinks, an indoor one which is open throughout the year and an outdoor one in winter in the village centre.
