“Fantastic first ski holiday”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I and my grown up family spent a week in Morzine at Chalet Jirishanca. We had a fantastic time in a very modern we'll equipped chalet with friendly and companionable co guests and very attentive and friendly young hosts. Wendy and Fin had given up their day jobs at the beginning of the season and were hugely enthusiastic, efficient and friendly. Nothing was too much bother or too little fun! The chalet itself was ideal - comfortable en suite bedrooms, good public rooms where you could socialise or hide away and the hot tub with a beer, vin chaud or toffee vodka the house speciality! On the skiing front our hosts showed us round the pistes, the nearby resort of Avorias, river walks and sledging locations - so much better than trying to figure it all out for ourselves even though the ski lifts are within a short walk of the chalet. Go there!

For the perfect skiing holiday you need a comfortable chalet, fantastic food and great hosts. That is exactly what we got from Wendy and Fin, our More Mountain hosts. This was our second year with More Mountain and I would highly recommend them.
Wendy and Fin were so welcoming on arrival and their shine and enthusiasm was evident the whole week despite the fact they work so hard for us. Nothing was too much trouble and we barely lifted a finger all week. We really enjoyed skiing with them both for two days - great way to ski the best runs. On my partners birthday they went the extra mile with more bubbly, canapes and birthday cake.
The rooms are cosy, beds are comfortable and the showers spacious and hot. The hot tub on the deck was great. The living areas are spacious with a great log burner. We lazed most nights watching DVDs.
Jirishanca is so well located in central Morzine.
Thanks More Mountain!

Room Tip: Best room is upstairs at the back with a bath and balcony.

This chalet is brand new, everything about It is fab, it feels like coming home after a hard day on the slopes. The food was amazing, the hot tub is the best way to relax at the end of the. Quite simply this is the best skiing holiday I have ever had. The one thing that makes this chalet even more incredible is the incredible hosts! Without Fin and Wendy it would have been a great holiday, but they just add that extra touch. What amazing people they are! They truly do go the extra mile to make your holiday something really special!

You need to stay here!

We stayed here for one week in Jan 2013. I wish could have stayed all month!
Fin and Wendy are exceptional hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Fin walked through the village with my husband to return my skis, which gave me more time in the hot tub.
The Chalet being new is clean and fresh with a contemporary twist. With two spacious lounges there was plenty of room to socialise or sit quietly and read or listen to music.
The most relaxing skiing holiday I have had in 14 years.

Stayed in Jirishanca for a fab week! The chalet is brand new and beautifully set out with very comfy lounging rooms, a wood burning stove and hot tub all perfect for relaxing. The bedrooms are lovely and the dining area is great for everyone to sit together and enjoys meals with a great view up the mountains.

Finlay and Wendy were fantastic hosts. Always very friendly, entertaining and helpful. Wendy's cooking was amazing...so good we will have to spend the next few weeks on rations and at the gym. Fin has the bathrooms shiny for you finishing breakfast and is always happy to provide lifts to and from the slopes...his toffee vodka isn't too bad either!

Overall a great holiday! I would definitely recommend taking a trip to see them.

Great Chalet, but more importantly briiiiiiiiilllll hosts. Fin and Wendy are really nice and made our week fantastic. Wendy's food is 5 star and you must try Fin's toffee Vodka. Nothing is tooooooooo much bother. The location is also great for the lifts so you can come and go as you please. Fin is also great with the wine bottle it just seems to follow you around....even in the hot tub. We'd rebook just for the friendly banter.

We stayed in Chalet Jirishanca in January and all had an absolutely amazing time. It was pure luxury, with lovely comfortable rooms, brilliant food and the most fantastic hot tub (made even better by Fin constantly bringing out drinks and nibbles). I commend Wendy for dealing with our various dietary requirements, including lactose intolerance and a vegetarian, always with a smile! We could not have asked for better chalet hosts, or a better ski holiday. We would go back in a second.
