“Chalet Mors Courchevel Moriond 1650”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Just returned from a week at Chalet Mors with Ski Olympic. Got a good last minute deal, making it excellent value for money: flights, transfers, 20kg luggage, brekkie, tea and cakes, 3-course dinner. Only extras were snowboard bag, lift pass, and one meal out on staff night off. We didn;t even need to buy lunch as we filled up at breakfast and just had chocolate/cereal bars to keep us going on the slopes.

Met by Liam at Grenoble for the two and a half hour transfer to Moriond, warm welcome from chalet staff who had tea and cakes waiting for us.

Traditional alpine chalet, in a fantastic quiet location, 5 minute walk to town centre and main lifts, free shuttle bus to 1850 stops right outside chalet, lovely views of valley at the back of the chalet. We had Room 6 downstairs at the rear, with terrace overlooking valley, bath with shower over, separate WC, two singles and bunks, more than enough for the three of us adults. Adequate storage space. Terracotta tiled floor was cold and spartan, but at least we could see it was clean! In fact the room and bathroom/WC were spotlessly clean when we arrived, so I didn't need to use my Dettox wipes! Two of the rooms are directly off the lounge/dining room so you may be disturbed by late-nighters/early risers. Rooms 1 and 2 are accessed from outside - not ideal in bad weather. There is a boot room, which is locked from 7pm to 7am, or lockers are available at the lift station if you don't want to walk back in your ski boots.

Lovely lounge with big fireplace which Liam lit every evening. Tea/coffee available 24/7. Good wifi signal in lounge, hit and miss in the bedroom (the loo had the best reception!). Meals taken at two long tables. A bit of a tight squeeze as not much space to move between them. The chalet was not full; I can't imagine there would be enough room for everyone to sit at table if it had been full. Certainly not enough easy chairs in the lounge. Chalet girls Rosie, Sophie and Amy worked very hard and were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, chef Danny was laid up with a bad back after giving us a lovely dinner on the first evening but stand-in chefs did a good job keeping us well fed, catering for vegetarians and other dietary preferences. Breakfast could be improved: cereals, bread, jams, cheeses, cold meats, yogurts all good, but hot items (scrambled/fried eggs, sausages, bacon, tomatoes, etc. were in unheated chafing dishes, hence were usually cold or barely warm. Porridge available on request, but again it was not very hot and a bit gloopy, but some may have liked it that way. Little gripes: salt and pepper were in small ramekins on the table so everyone had their fingers in them; baguettes at breakfast and afternoon tea were not cut, so handled by guests when cutting them. Would have been good to wrap a napkin around them - I should have thought to do that myself. And salt and pepper mills/shakers would be good! We ran out of clean mugs on a few occasions, mainly because guests took them to their rooms and didn't return them. Otherwise, very happy with quality and quantity of food. We were even served canapes and bubbly on first and last evenings, and cheese and port on last evening. Oh, one other gripe: it was assumed everyone drank wine and we had to ask for soft drinks, which was squash, but we did get juice with the canapes and on the last evening. Plenty of red and white wine for those who indulged.

We've been to the 3 Valleys many times before but never ventured as far as 1650. It's a great resort for beginners and intermediates. Confident beginners can ski over to Courchevel 1850 and back, or take the free shuttle bus (10 minute ride, buses run every 10 minutes) where there is more than enough to keep all levels happy for a week. A local Courchevel pass also includes Courchevel 1550 and La Tania. With an early start and a 3 Valley pass, it is not difficult for intermediates upwards to ski to Val Thorens/Les Menuires/St Martin via Meribel and back in a day.

Would definitely recommend this chalet and Ski Olympic.

Room Tip: Rooms 5-9 downstairs are probably quieter, rooms 1 and 2 are accessed from outside and have mezzanin...

Chalet Mors is in a great location, right at the end of town on the way up the hill to 1850; far enough to avoid most of the late night noise of the town but still only a short walk from the main lift and right opposite the bus stop. In fact after the first day we took the bus to 1850 each morning as it was easier and gives you quicker access to the rest of the 3 vallees. We even managed to get up for first lifts on a couple of days being the very first people on the piste in 1850, skiing bliss!

The chalet is very pretty with stone walls and big wooden beams, it has a rustic cosy vibe. The dinning area and lounge are gorgeous with a high ceiling and huge fireplace and plenty of comfy seating so that the whole group can gather together to chat and catch up. We spent quiet a bit of time here, enjoying afternoon tea, pre and post dinner drinks and games. It is the heart of the chalet. The rooms, on the other hand leave something to be desired. To begin with they vary hugely from one another, maybe you will have a bath, perhaps just a shower; maybe you will have a balcony, perhaps just the view of a stone wall; maybe you will have a twin you can move around in, perhaps you will have the twin that is so tiny the beds have to be squashed together against the wall to create a pathway to the bathroom; maybe you will be in the chalet, perhaps you will have the room outside that you need to exit the chalet to get to. We had the whole chalet booked out so I got to see each room and this is my tip, as a couple or two friends ask for room, 5, 9 or 4 (4 is up by the lounge so if you have people up late making noise it maybe annoying, especially when coming home late and slamming the door, but it is big, has a balcony and a bathroom with bath and shower). For a triple or family room go for room 6. The other two quads are located outside the chalet and ours had a mezzanine that I would never put a young child in for fear of them falling down the steep steps and if you put an adult up there make sure he or she is the shortest person in the group. Also this room had a broken lock on the door and the bathroom window was smashed and taped back up....??
However, as the saying goes you are there to ski and not spend time in your room and with that in mind the accommodation fits the purpose, however, when you are sold the holiday as a 4 star it is hard not too get a little disappointed.

As for the staff they were lovely, very friendly and the chef was great, making delicious cakes and dinners; although I think he maybe a feeder the amount of food that we were getting severed! Only two minor niggles; one, I kept asking for a jug of water to be placed out with afternoon tea and it never appeared, I had to get my own water from the bathroom tap; secondly, only one towel was given per person and no hand towels were available, we asked for more and never got them...oh and we moved our beds and found a whole load of dirt and stuff under them, oh well.

All in all the holiday was brilliant the skiing was fantastic, the weather amazing and our group was lots of fun. As for the chalet I would say it was fine, stick to the living areas and it's great but don't expect too much from the rooms.

Great package option - we booked thru' Ski Olympic, a UK outfit. We paid about 500pds for accommodation, half board & return coach travel from the UK for 8 days.

Chalet Mors is a 250 year old building about 3 mins easy walk from the main ski lift in 1650. It is a very quaint wood & stone building, with huge wooden beams exposed in the main dining area. Our room was beautiful with a lovely view from our verandah, and a tiny, but functional ensuite. However, our relatives room was a bit dreary, with slightly stinky drains.

The Ski Olympic staff who man the Chalet were EXCELLENT and really went the extra mile. When our 5 year old decided she didn't want to ski, they took her sledging for the afternoon, and wouldn't accept any payment! If I ever make it back to Courchevel, I would happily stay there again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Chalet Mors has in 2012 undergone a massive refurbishment program.As one of the original chalets in Courchevel 1650, Chalet Mors exudes an atmosphere of authentic charm that is difficult to create in newer chalets. The harmony of its stone exterior is matched when one enters through the heavy wooden door into the warmth of the open plan dining room/lounge. The pitched ceiling is supported by thick wood beams, and meals are taken around long tables which ensure that everyone can sit down together to enjoy great evenings of fine food, wine and relaxation in this most traditional of chalets.Over the years some newer parts have been added to the interior of the chalet, and while some bedrooms are modern and of a good size, others are smaller and more quaint. ... more   less
