“Quite frankly you will not find anywhere better…”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Well what can I say about this place? Probably one of, if not, the coolest ski chalet around, only made even more impressive by the hosts Jon and Michelle who run it.

My wife and I plus two friends had the pleasure of a week here in March and we were not disappointed, the chalet is superb, fitted out to a very high standard, easily equal to a 5 star boutique hotel, huge TV, Wii, Sky TV etc, Wifi stereo, free wifi. Located in the centre of town, easy walk to everything (not that you will need to go out). Those whom have stayed at quality hotels will immediately notice that no expense has been spared when kitting this place out. The standard of the bedrooms are also first class and kept very clean. The whole place is lovely and warm, maybe too warm if I had to be picky. Hot Tub was great, be careful of the jets, they are wild!

Just when you assume things can’t get any better, they do, the chalet hosts Jon and Michelle were faultless. The food, cleanliness, information provided and general hosting was excellent, I almost forgot they were chalet hosts as it was more like being away with friends. Jon and Michelle obviously really care that the guests enjoy themselves and this clearly shows.

Glastonbury festival ruined every other festival I went to, Ibiza has ruined every other club I’ll go to again and The Ark (with Jon and Michelle included) will ruin every other Ski Chalet I will stay in.

Super stay at the Ark, Jon and Michelle couldn't do enough to make everything spot on. I live in another ski resort and the chalet made the trip worthwhile: the building is superb , great food, hot tub, great location and the More Mountain guys and girls evidently made it a personal mission to ensure we all had a brilliant time. Hope to be back there very soon!

I can honestly say that this is the best chalet I have ever stayed in! John and Michelle couldn't have done any more to make our stay absolutely perfect; they were super helpful and the food was just amazing (I still remember the white chocolate dessert..)...

The chalet itself was stunning and always perfectly cleaned!

Merci a vous, John and Michelle!

Stayed here in January for long weekend. The chalet is new this season and is lovely. Hot tub a must after a hard day on slopes. It's fairly central in Morzine too, so - unlike many of the Morzine chalets - not too much hard work to get back to after a long day, or a long night. John and Michelle are great hosts - they skied with us and showed us round the mountain as well as some awesome cooking - Michelle's desserts are to die for. They were as happy to join in with us or leave us to our own devices.

Absolutely fantastic. Words can't begin to describe how luxurious our stay was in The Ark - run by More Mountain. It began as soon as we were greeted at the door by our host couple, Jon and Michelle. They were friendly, accommodating, completely knowledgeable about Morzine and it's skiing and above all - simply lovely. The Ark is a gorgeous getaway that combines pure French chalet comforts with a bit of flare and funk! More Mountain took care of all our ski needs before hand so that as soon as we arrived - we were ready to hit the slopes. We were completely and utterly spoiled with the chalet's location, the lush interior design and the incredibly delicious cuisine made by Michelle and Jon. We would highly recommend this chalet to anyone heading to Morzine - I know we'll go back - hopefully to recreate the amazing vacation we just returned from.

Thanks to John and Michelle for being excellent host's. We could not of asked for 'more'. The food was great and the wine was flowing. The accomodation and cleanliness was excellent. Me and my partner would happily return to the 'ARK', especially if it was in the more than capable hands of Michelle and John. Cheers Jonny
