Arrived to meet the friendly Jono at the airport. He insisted on wheeling our bikes to his van. (Really sound guy, excellent host).

After a pleasant journey to Morzine we got to the chalet in darkness. Jono showed us round and gave us a demo of the Hot Tub! We couldnt believe our luck when we arrived. The Chalet is awesome and that is an understatement!
We got our bags inside and were keen to build the bikes up but there was another little treat instore for us...

Jono had prepared a local dish for supper. You will be delighted with the gourmet home cooking that these guys lay on. A choice of red or rose wine is on tap with no limit!

Bikes built then on to the rooms. They are a good size with sparkling clean bathrooms that are well equipped. Comfy beds and homely chalet. We didnt want to leave and that was after being there for 1 hour!

The bike storage area is really secure and was ideal for them. There is a bike stand and a few tools to help you build up aswell! A hose pipe and jet wash were for use which meant we didnt have to pay like most of the other suckers in morzine!

Every morning breakfast is laid out consisting of the most fresh french baguettes, jam, butter, yoghurts, cereals, toast, eggy bread etc etc. Felt bad for not being able to finish all the food in the morning but it was spot on!

Also there was a tasty cake on the table as we arrived back into the chalet everyday! When I say tasty im meaning TASTY. Just what you need after a hard days riding.

After the days of riding it was time to jump in the welcoming hot tub. This thing really makes you feel great after a hard day. It was another bonus from Riders Refuge.

I cant recommend this place and Riders Refuge enough. Jono and Jill are excellent hosts laying on the best food and great service. Friendly and really cool people.

There is going to be more of us going back next year, its just a shame that next year is so far away!

Just come back from a 5 day mountain biking trip in Morzine. Stayed with Jill and Jono at Chalet Eterle. The service was absolutely amazing!! We were picked up from Geneva by Jono (no charge)( he even text us when we landed to welcome us to Geneva and let us know where to meet him).
It was a hot day when we landed and he had cold bottles of water in the van ( very welcome after the flight).
Chalet Eterle is really nice, spotlessly clean. The bedrooms are a good size and the en suite showers brilliant!!
There was a bike work stand and some tools so we could fix the bikes up and they've just finished building a secure bike store.
The breakfasts and three course dinners were always fantastic and just what you needed after a hard day in the saddle. ; - )
We were looked after extremely well from start to finish and both Jill and Jono went out of their way to help us out with shuttling us around and sorting out guiding for us. I can't reccomend these Guys enough, If you're heading to Morzine you have got to see if these Guys have availability. They are simply the best!!!!

We were part of a group of 8 with the final room taken up for the last 3 days by another 2 lovely people and the atmosphere and feel to the place catered for all our abilities, interests and activities. We all got on great because Jill and Jono have such a relaxed flexible vibe about the place you can't help but enjoy.
The food was great, the lift in the van in the morning much appreciated, bus stop nearby and town only 10 mins stroll away so all in all very good location and extras. They even arranged for Jim to come along one night and play his guitar and organ for us to sing kareoke hits too! If you don't like singing they will happily suggest something else.
The chalet was really nice and clean with the hot tub a lovely way to while away a couple of hours with a beer in the evening.
Jill and Jono are soo good they even picked me up from the local hospital when i injured my bottom on a foolish attempt to be cool in the Avoriaz trick park. Thanks for picking me up and looking after my big battered bum!
Highly recomended for whole groups or smaller groups as Jill and Jono help everyone get along and relax.

Jill & Jono deserve all the praise & success they get. Whether it was food, rooms, ferrying to the slopes, you name it, we all felt very well looked after. Their experience & care shone through. Thank you, but try & keep a room for us next year please!

The perfect holiday! We visited Chalet Eterle in March 2009 with four friends for our first skiing / snowboarding holiday, and we loved every minute. We were spoilt in every way, with the chalet, the hosts Jono and Jill, the food, the location and the weather, all were superb- would definity recommend a beer in the hot tub after a day on the slopes!
Morzine is a superb resort and the ski lifts are within walking distance of the chalet. Needless to say we will definitly be going skiing and snowboarding again, and when we do we will be going back to Chalet Eterle to see Jono and Jill, the perfect hosts.
