Chalet D'amo is located about a 6 minute drive away from the town of Morzine and the ski lifts to Les Gets / Morzine. The chalet is very old fashioned and is run and managed by Linda and Nigel who are two middle aged English expats. They are very nice people and also very welcoming. The bedrooms are extremely basic with no TV, just beds and a bathroom - which is all you really need. The floor boards are very creaky and sometimes it is very difficult to sleep when people are above (you can hear every foot step). However, that didn't bother me and my girlfriend that much as we are only 20/23 years old and not pensioners. The breakfast is very simple with cereal, fresh bread and croissants on offer every day with tea/coffee and juice. This gets a bit boring after a while, but it does the trick. Linda and Nigel offer a taxi service (free of charge) to the town in the morning and in the afternoon after skiing which is handy. Nigel is very opinionated and will try to get you to go out skiing with him regularly, which we did once. He is a 'practising' ski instructor so he knows the area well, but if you want to go fast and do crazy stuff then he isn't your man! He is however good for beginners and will teach you some very basic stuff.
If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Morzine, which offers really limited living space and just a bed room then this is your place. If you want a bit of luxury, space and a place to really relax after a long day skiing then don't book here. I would return if there was nothing better on offer.
PS. Don't be scared of the dog (Archie), he is a big softy and doesn't bite!
