Traditional french chalet ideally located for skiing in France. Very friendly hosts with over a decade of experience looking after their guests. Spacious rooms, plenty of hot water and tasty home cooked food. 80 minute transfer from Geneva airport.

Had a great time for New Year with the amazing hosts Glyn, Rita and their son Alex. Nothing was too much trouble and Glyn’s taxi service to and from the slopes and airport was amazing and convenient (luckily we didn’t need one from Switzerland 🙂). It was so nice to have a chalet with decent sized rooms to spread out various gear and warm boots in the morning. Good food and wine with supper too followed by impromptu table football tournaments (watch out Alex has an unbeaten record!!) plus evenings out to l’auberge and a super restaurant in Morzine with a free taxi made our stay very relaxing. Glyn gave great advice on good routes to take and mountain restaurants for pit stops/lunch and a free guide (of Glyn) for one day meant we got the most out of the Portes du Soleil. We would definitely recommend staying with Glyn and Rita for a trip to Morzine and no doubt will be back!

Not what we expected, it is basically a B&B. This was a summer rental and we thought we were renting the whole chalet, there were 7 adults in our group but it turned out the owners lived in the chalet. The original description of the property did not say anything about the owners living in the chalet, but the day before we left we read a recent review that said the owners were always in the chalet. This concerned us a little, the description then changed on the website to say the owners live in a separate apartment downstairs, THIS IS NOT CORRECT, they live in the chalet and sleep in the apartment. After our arrival we spoke to the owner and explained that their description of the property was not clear and they did their best to accommodate our needs, but it was still not the same as we expected. Having just checked their description, they have changed it once again, it still says they `'live in a separate apartment downstairs`'FALSE" their son lives in one of the bedrooms in the chalet next to our room. If you know it is just a B&B before going then the chalet was nice and the views amazing, but very expensive for just a room and breakfast. Breakfast was very poor, nothing was fresh. With all the local products available, the owners would rather serve cheap supermarket products. One morning we were given a 2 day old baguette, which we could not eat, as for the croissants they were again from a supermarket and heated in the oven. We expected fresh pastries and bread purchased in the morning, this is normal in France to go get fresh breakfast every morning. Other members of our party said the coffee was very bad and not drinkable. On our last morning, we were due to leave at 7am, the owner left a note saying he would not be up until 8am or 8:30 and would leave fresh bread (one day old) and yogurts out for our breakfast. I have never known a B&B to say they are not getting up that early. Disappointing for the price we paid, we could have rented a full chalet for less than this and had a nice fresh breakfast in the mornings. Even if you know it is a B&B it is not worth the price, you can get much nicer places for less.

Response from 988glynh, Owner at Chalet Margaritka
Responded Sep 22, 2017
During the Summer we never try to be anything other than a BnB. On booking we emphasise that we do live in the chalet ie. we put it in writing!! When clients ask for confirmation that we do provide breakfast before booking one believes that they do understand that we are a BnB and they have grasped that we do live in the chalet. The chalet is very spacious with two lounges, a large terrace and separate decking so it is relatively easy for us to make our presence scarce, but you will see us around. Most of our guests do not have a problem with this and are happy to engage with us, obviously this is not for all. We price the chalet in Summer based on what other chalets/ chalet hotels offer for BnB. We are clear that breakfast is only of the Continental variety. If people feel we are a bit expensive then we believe the spacious, traditional and homely nature of the chalet combined with the fantastic views and location warrant this. Having been running the chalet for almost 10 years and many positive reviews we do try our utmost to give our clients a positive holiday experience. It seems the old adage ''you can't please all of the people all of the time is true'' :((((

Lovely ski chalet a short distance from a vast ski area. Very friendly hosts offering an airport to ski slope service. Spacious, well equipped chalet offering B&B and evening meals and well stocked guest fridge.

Spent a lovely week at Chalet Margaritka during February half term. All the family Rita, Glyn & Alex made us feel completely at home and nothing was too much trouble. From the shuttle runs to the slopes everyday to the fantastic ski guiding, finding the best slopes and restaurants! Rita is a true connoisseur of cuisine with excellent meals served every evening. Glyn was a great host with nothing being too much trouble. Sampling his vinyl collection was one of the highlights of our evenings entertainment, although some of his collection is a little dodgy! Alex has made a new buddy in our son and Thomas who will miss his humour, although not his table football skills! would highly recommend this chalet to anyone consider a trip to Morzine. Hope to see you all again. The Morgans. xx

Chalet Margaritka is the ideal place for a short ski-break. Glyn and Rita are the perfect hosts and are geared up to ensure that guests have the maximum time on the slopes. Our package included transport to and from the airport and ski slopes, which was well worth the additional cost and was all arranged for our convenience. I visited with three friends in January, the second visit for most of us. We were collected at Geneva airport on Friday morning by Glyn and were skiing in the afternoon with ski passes already arranged. We were able to do virtually 3 more full days skiing before being returned to the airport on the Monday for an 8:00pm return flight. The chalet itself is very comfortable with a large lounge/dining area and a wood burning fire. The vinyl collection is enviable and provided much entertainment. The food, drink and company were excellent and the whole experience was very enjoyable. It is a great place to relax - or even over-relax.

We had a four day stay at the chalet as a family , children in their twenties, parents sadly rather more, and had a wonderful time. We know the area reasonably well and the chalet is in a great position ..lovely views and a short connection to a number of access points for skiing. Glyn and Rita make everything hassle free, from collecting at the airport to all transport once there, arranging equipment and passes. More important than that ,they provide a very relaxed, comfortable environment , lovely rooms, great cooking and very engaging company. This is a superb region for a skiing weekend with such easy connections to Geneva and this is a chalet which helps make the most of a it. Mark and Caroline

Returned again this January to Chalet Margaritka after a brilliant four day stay last year. Once again everything was terrific from Rita's welcome, her cooking and the clean and comfortable accommodation. Everything including airport transfers, ski passes and drop offs at various ski locations were arranged with ease so we were able to take advantage of the great skiing in the whole Portes du Soleil area. The atmosphere in the chalet is relaxed and friendly and would recommend a long weekend ski trip to Chalet Margaritka to anyone. We will certainly be back! Kath & John
