I stayed at White Heights from 26th Dec 2010 - 2nd Jan 2011 with 9 other friends, all on our first trip to Morzine. The chalet is beautiful and even better in real life than the photos show. The hosts Kate and David are fantastic; they couldn’t do enough for us. We were truly at home in the chalet and allowed to do as we pleased and by morning the place would look as good as new for us (despite many empties lying around from the honesty bar!).
Kate is a fantastic chef and cooked us amazing dinners. Even if you don’t ski its worth going just to relax in the chalet (and hot tub) and eat the lovely food. Menus including soufflé, pork belly and chocolate fondant were ‘typical’ and each night was better than the next. The wine was great and plentiful.
David did a great job of getting us started on the slopes and spent a couple of days on the mountains with different members of the group – one day helping beginners down the blue runs and another doing a 90km circuit to Switzerland and back.
All in, the service was fantastic and Kate and David were more than happy to ferry us to and from the lifts/pubs daily. Walking home after a night out can take a while so I’d advise booking a taxi in advance as they can be scarce (although we were there at a particularly busy time). The location is lovely and quiet (no one to overlook you in the outdoor hot tub or complain about noise) with beautiful scenery yet a free bus passes just outside the chalet.
Overall Morzine is a great ski resort with many restaurants, bars and shops and I’d highly recommend it.
Thanks again to the great hosts for an excellent start to 2011!
