2010 was my first time on a "luxury catered Chalet" type ski trip. I was not disappointed.
Simply Morzine are an pleasant and efficient small family firm who specialise in organising trips to one single ski resort. Their website is simple to use and the descriptions of accommodation and services are accurate.
This year I travelled with a group of 14 which included my wife and our two young boys (four and three), my outlaws plus some mates and their kids.
Liked - short (one hour) transfers from/ to Geneva airport (included in price). Chalet was spotlessly clean, spacious and well kitted out e.g. Wi-fi + Sauna (not tried simultaneously!). Location - Chalet Carving is 200m from one of the main ski lifts (Pleney). Food was consistently high standard. Service from chalet staff was friendly and efficient. Ski guide service was excellent. Resort - Morzine appears to be a smaller and quieter village - if there is a wild party scene kicking off then it passed us by. The chalet type accommodation really works with young kids as you can relax knowing they are in a safe "home from home" type environment.
Disliked - chaos @ Geneva airport on a Saturday (handover day for Chalets/ week long hotel deals + the Geneva Motor show didn't help!). Mother-in-law's face at breakfast every day for a week (but what can you do?!?).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Simply Morzine’s Chalet Carving is arguably Morzine’s best-located luxury chalet. The chalet is at the foot of Morzine's main Pleney ski slopes and lifts, yet discrete and secluded, with the resort centre just 100 metres away. The ultimate 'ski-in, ski-out' chalet! The chalet is available catered in winter. ... more less
