Chalet Setanta spectacular Morillon Setting

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Setanta offers luxury with a homely comfort and has all the holiday facilities that you'd wish for! We were part of a large group and enjoyed fine dining, a leisurely setting with all the assistance to make our holiday easy and relaxing. Our ski equipment, together with transport to and from the ski slopes was arranged for us and it was of the highest quality. Comfort, flexibility, entertainment and relaxation is the name of the game at Chalet Setanta.

Great quality chalet, exceptional service

  • 5 of 5

Chalet is well furnished, warm, very clean, very comfortable beds with superb views. What sets this chalet apart is the smooth running, from the transfer from the airport, to the welcome drinks. Followed by ski equipment delivery direct to the chalet, advise on ski passes and expert knowledge on the area. At not least the fantastic food. The owners have thought of everything and should be congratulated!

Idyllic Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

There are just so many positives about this chalet and the hosts - the hospitality, food, convenience, services, cleanliness, comfortable beds...the list goes on. We have just returned from a great week of skiing in this wonderful chalet and can only speak positively about it. The hosts are available at all times (6 days a week) to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We even took a day to go on a guided shoeshoeing tour at Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval - this also was arranged by the owner - and what a lovely experience. The seamless organisation of everything meant that, from the collection point at the airport to the drop-off point at the airport, the only thing you had to worry about was enjoying yourself! Bravo to Sarah and team.

Chalet Setanta-

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Sentanta Chalet, food was excellent hard to beat in a top hotel! Lovely open fire, friendly atmosphere and great skiing. Quality of accomodation was excellent too- comfortable bed, clean and very well maintained. The lift to and from the slopes made the trip very easy and hassle free- a great break altogether. Highly recommended.

Like a home away from home - with delicious food!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Chalet Setanta, I’m already thinking about when I can get back! Forgoing our offers to be picked up, we rented a car in Geneva, the chalet was so easy to find about 45 minutes from the airport and in the most picturesque location. We were cared for and made feel welcome from the moment we walked in the door, the chalet feels like a home away from home and you immediately fall for it. The stunning views from the kitchen table don’t hurt either and I’m not just talking about the view outside, Nicola’s cooking is second to none, really delicious and comforting food. Our equipment was delivered to the chalet which was perfect and effortless. The chalet is about a 10 minute drive from the slopes, which suited us perfectly, especially considering the beautiful scenery along the way. To top it all off the at the end of the evening, the chalet’s unique and captivating fireplace was the perfect place to sooth sore muscles after a day skiing and relax in front of with good wine and friends – a definite must!

From the Owner

Ten years ago when skiing with friends we fell in love with 265 kilometres of pistes across five resorts and knew immediately we wanted to come back year after year. Since then the Grand Massif, and in particular Morillon, has maintained its old world charm while catering for the needs of the modern skier. Every year we return to experience this slow pace of life, rejuvenate our spirits and soak up the uniquely French atmosphere that Morillon offers.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 55 Kilometres Nearest Train : La Cluses at 15 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A40 at 15 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Morillon at 2.5 Kilometres Car: necessary

Morillion is an unspoilt alpine village nestled between the mountains in the Giffre Valley. It features several excellent restaurants serving Savoyard cuisine. Morillon also has a bakers, butchers, supermarket, pharmacy and sports equipment hire shops.

Take the bubble lift up from Morillon to 265km of piste with plenty of routes for all abilities. The Grand Massif resorts are all linked. The closest, Samoens, is only 2km away and a wonderful Asterix style old medieval town with many interesting shops and restaurants. The Giffre Valley is beautiful in winter covered in snow and the traditional Savoyard farmhouses are decorated with twinkling lights for Christmas.

In summer pink and red flowers spill from window boxes filling the valley with colour. The valley is carpeted in green and the mountains look spectacular against the blue alpine sky. The Blue Lake in Morillon offers safe swimming, gentle cycle tracks along the river and plenty of activities.

Other activities in the area include: white water rafting; mountain walks and hiking; mountain biking (hire available locally); parapenting or simply relaxing and enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains.

Morillon holds the official ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ designation for its excellent children facilities.
