“A little gem of a chalet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2011

Chalet Clair Martin has raised the bar for future ski holidays.

Chris and Kate of Mountain Spaces understand what makes a fantastic ski holiday experience, and have great attention to detail. I loved all the little touches, from the Nespresso machine to the Molton Brown toiletries. The service they provide is flawless, and they are a valuable source of local knowledge.

The chalet is beautifully furnished, has all mod gadgets (and some good old fashioned board games), is very close to the lifts and Apres, and is spotless and homely. The hot tub and sauna are the perfect remedies for the aching muscles.

I have to mention Sasha and CJ the chalet hands as they were fantastic hosts, very attentive and entertaining. Their hot honey, ginger and lemon had a great kick- just what was needed to blow away the cobwebs in the morning! The food they served was top notch, delicious, well presented and plentiful. The free flowing wine at dinner was supurb and the honesty bar a welcome addition for a late night white russian or two!

Thank you again to all at Mountain Spaces for such a great holiday!

This is an amazing chalet with beautiful views. The owners Chris and Kate are lovely and cannot do enough to help and the chalet hosts, Danielle and Paul, are wonderful - brilliants cooks and so friendly. The food is amazing - look out for Danielle's delicious afternoon tea and cakes - I've missed them since I've come home!

The chalet is a little walk from the centre of Morzine, which means it's very peaceful and the views are stunning. It's possible to arrange for mini-van to drop off at the slopes in the morning and collect in afternoon. I'm looking forward to going back to the chalet next year and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

With one stay already at Katie and Chris' gorgeous Chalet Clair Matin in January 2010, we jumped at the chance to stay with them again in their new Chalet Doux Abri.

Everything that Katie and Chris do is classy, and designed to make you feel as welcome as possible. From the stylish and cozy chalet decor, to the 3 course menu, to the mountain-view hot tub, every detail has been meticulously planned to create the quintessential chalet experience. And it doesn't end there - the little extras such as Molton Brown toiletries in the bathrooms and afternoon tea waiting fresh from the oven when you get back from a hard day on the slopes, made our trip extra special.

The chalet staff are amazing, and by the end of the week Dani and Paul felt like friends - not that I have many friends who can delivery a sumptuous 3 course meal (with canapés!) and crack a few jokes at the same time.

In terms of location from the lifts - the chalet provides free transfers each morning to Morzine Pleney or Les Gets and a free pick up in the afternoon, back to the chalet (and delicious afternoon treats). Morzine's city centre is only a ten minute walk from the chalet, but the pick-ups certainly felt like a luxury at the end of a long day enjoying the snow.

We stayed with a group of ten friends and each remarked that it was far more impressive than they had ever dreamed, and would all recommend to their friends. By far one of the best holidays we have been on, and we thank Katie, Chris, Dani and Paul for making it so.

I stayed here with a group of friends in January and had a fantastic time. The chalet is wonderful - 5 star! The extra special touches really made the chalet stand out from others I've stayed in the past. We loved the outdoor hot tub after we got back from skiing and the sauna. Paul and Danielle our hosts looked after us with amazing food all week and the highlight being the afternoon cake when we arrived back from skiing. Kate and Chris helped us organise everything so well ready for our stay including ski hire, lift passes and meeting us at the airport. Definitely by far the best chalet I have ever stayed in with attention to detail just perfect. Great location, amazing food and service and can't wait to return!

We had a small group of 5 friends arriving Sunday for a short trip and leaving Wednesday evening. Morzine is super close to the Geneva airport and the transfer was over almost before it started. We were out on the slopes in the afternoon after landing whilst a champagne reception and cake were being prepared at the challet. Our hosts were really friendly and had a can do attitude. The food was varied and well above average for a catered chalet especially as my wife is a vegetarian and her food was varied and thought out. Chris and Kate the owners of Mountain spaces made sure we settled in well and CJ and Sasha the challet hosts took care of everything else. The accomodation is well set a few minutes from the main town and close to the lifts. Amazing views, super comfy with nice touches like Egyptian cotton sheets and Molton Brown. There is also a hot tub and a sauna which took away the days pains. Great trip, good people, beautiful chalet. Our group is looking at going back as soon as we can.

Mountain spaces, Chris and Katie, looked after me so well. I spent a week in Chalet Clair Matin in February for my annual snowboarding holiday. I was a solo traveller and they ensured that my trip went without a hitch. The other guests in the chalet were all brilliant and we all became one big group! The chalet itself is so lovely, very modern and new, but cosy and friendly at the same time. Katie and Chris were such brilliant hosts, and their cooking was first class, I miss afternoon tea!!

I think this chalet is great for families, groups of friends, couples and people traveling on their own. The rooms were comfortable and always spotless and clean. The spa facilities were a great bonus too after a long day out on my board, a great way to relax.

Its very close to the main lift up the mountain and short walk to the town of Morzine.

I highly recommend a Mountain Spaces holiday and would definitely go back.

Thanks Chris and Katie
