What an amazing holiday. We booked the chalet based on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. The hosts, Teresa and Paul and their chalet girl Lauren were so friendly and could not do enough to make their guests feel at home. The food was a joy every night and Teresa's deserts are legendary....we will be getting a few recipes from her. The toffee cheesecake was to die for. The other guests (1 other family and 2 couples) were so friendly it was like a week long house party and we had great fun chatting with them and Paul and Teresa as the wine flowed freely at dinner. The whole week was a complete rest, Paul collected us from the airport, arranged lift passes and for the ski hire company to come out to the chalet to fit boots etc. We were taken to the slopes and collected every day. On their night off they booked a table at a local restaurant and Lauren dropped us off and picked us back up again. We had nothing to worry about other than having fun.
The hot tub was fantastic - so weird to sit out when it is snowing, drinking champagne and chatting to the other guests, feeling very chilled.
The town of Morzine is also very good with lots of restaurants and cafes and very nice artisan shops, the slopes are easy to access with a good mix of beginner to advanced slopes. We were a mixed group from complete beginners to competent skiers and we all found a good range of pistes to choose from.
We will absolutely go back again - maybe a summer trip to try out the mountain biking.
