Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Morzine - Apartment 1, Chalet Lucie

Do self catering in style! Gorgeous bespoke open plan living/dining area

Occupying the top two floors of the chalet, with two privately-owned apartments underneath, this stunning luxury self catering duplex apartment is situated on a quiet road on the edge of Morzine. Just 25 minutes walk from the centre of the village, and only 200 metres from the ski bus stop, it is ideally situated for both small groups and families. Access to restaurants, night life and the ski slopes surrounding Morzine is easy, and the chalet benefits from a peaceful location.

Ideally sleeping 8 people self catering, with all bedrooms en-suite and with balconies, this gorgeous chalet was completed in 2008 to a very high specification.

Guests can enjoy breathtaking mountain views from one of the many balconies, or relax in front of the wood fire in the centre of the open plan living area. The interior combines modern luxuries with traditional Savoyard charm, providing a stylish and comfortable ambiance - perfect for socializing after a busy day in the mountains

The apartment:

The four bedrooms are on the entrance level of the apartment. All bedrooms have en-suite facilities and a balcony.

There are stairs up to the stunning top floor, which incorporates the kitchen, dining and living areas plus the pool table.

There are two balconies accessible from the living and dining areas.

There is a secure ski boot room with a heated boot rack close to the front door of the chalet separate to the apartment, where ski boots, skis and snow boards can be stored. This area is ideal for storing bikes in the summer.

The resort in winter:

Morzine is a well-established mountain resort which is ideal for families. Fabulous in winter for skiiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and walking with its traditional atmosphere and gently wooded slopes and massive ski areas - 650 km of pistes in the Portes du Soleil and a further 120km in the Morzine/Les Gets areas.

Highlights are:

Ideal skiing for all ages and all standards from beginners to experts with a good choice of ski schools for beginners and those wanting to brush up on their technique.

95 km of varied cross-country trails

Great selection of off-piste skiing

Four terrain parks in Avoriaz, one at Nyon and Les Gets

Excellent choice of mountain restaurants

Lots of scenic walks

Large indoor ice rink with regular ice hockey matches

Outdoor ice rink in the centre of the town

Two cinemas

The resort in summer:

Morzine changes in the summer to a flower-bedecked haven for cyclists, mountain bikers, golfers and walkers.

There is a park by the river with a horse riding centre, a keep-fit track and a childrens' play area

Highlights are:

Outdoor olympic size swimming pool plus paddling pool and sunbathing area

Indoor pool

Whitewater activities

Tennis, basketball, table tennis, mini-soccer courts

Summer sledging

Lac Montriond with canoes, swimming, separate childrens' swimming area, horse rides

Great roads for cycling

Lifts open for mountain bikers and walkers

Fabulous walking area

Paragliding

Childrens' adventure parks

35 minutes from Lac Leman/Lake Geneva at Thonon, with great water parks nearby

40 minutes from Evian on Lac Leman

Access by boat from Thonon to all the resorts around the lake

Getting there:

Morzine is situated 50 miles/80 kms from Geneva airport.

Driving from the UK is easy and straightforward; we regularly drive and it usually takes nine hours including meal/fuel stops from Morzine to Calais - 540 miles/850 kms - a long way but on quiet roads compared to the heavy traffic of the UK.

About peter trend

We purchased our apartment in Chalet Lucie in December 2010. My wife Sue and I love skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and walking and cycling in the summer; after many years of visiting ski resorts throughout Europe we decided we would like to have our own place where we could stay and our family could visit. We wanted somewhere in a quiet area, big enough for our family, close to the town and the lifts with a bus service so we don't have to drive every day. We wanted easy access to the motorways to enable us to drive from England and close proximity to an international airport. We wanted a resort that offered great skiing but was also attractive in the summer - we think we have the ideal place!

We stay at the apartment several times throughout the year and love being there - it is our second home.

My wife and I often stay there on our own and don't feel it is too big for us, yet when our family visit we don't feel cramped as the living area is so big and the bedrooms all have their own bathrooms.

peter trend purchased this apartment in 2010

Why peter trend chose Morzine

We looked at hundreds of properties for sale in France before deciding on Morzine. We visited in summer and winter to ensure we would be happy there - we fell in love with the town and the surrounding area. We then created a list of what we wanted when we started to look at properties:

Quiet location

4 bedrooms, preferably with bathrooms

Large living area

Good access to the ski slopes

Parking

Garden area for summer visits

Not too far from the town centre

Separate space for skis, boots, boards, bikes etc

Our apartment has everything on our list, plus it is modern, light and spacious. It is our dream home!

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is 'upside down' - the bedrooms are on the first floor (2 private apartments are underneath) and the living/dining/kitchen area is upstairs on the top floor. The first time we visited and walked upstairs - wow! We wanted to buy it immediately. I still smile every time I walk up the stairs 3 years later! The chalet is on the edge of Morzine in a quiet area, yet the free bus service takes 5 minutes to reach the town centre - we use the bus regularly.

We also walk into town, especially in the summer when we can walk alongside the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was excellent, chalet was perfect and more than enough to do in and around Morzine.

High quality chalet, great stay.

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed for two weeks in this lovely home. It's situated in a wooded valley 10 minutes away from Morzine by car (free parking throughout the region, which was a bonus). Unfortunately no mountain views, which we missed after having at last year's holiday. The house was immaculate; cleaners were friendly and very helpful. Bonus of a quick clean and change of sheets/towels mid-stay; strangely enough the towels were the only things not to the same high standard as rest of house (though perfectly ok).

The photos/ description on the website do the house justice. All 4 double bedrooms were en-suite with comfortable beds and good storage (loads of wooden hangers). We loved the 'upside-down' nature of the house (bedrooms on ground floor) as this gave a really spacious, open-plan living area. High wooden ceilings with a great panorama through the large windows. It was very easy to either be together or sit quietly on one's own. Nice little seating area which gets the sun, until it disappears over the mountains. Would have liked a couple of comfy sun chairs though! Cooking facilities and equipment of a really high standard, nothing was lacking. Extensive selection of DVDs, games etc which really helped during the variable weather, also good phone and WiFi reception. Plentiful supply of hot water but be patient, it takes a little while to arrive!

Lots of great adventure sports that one can do very easily, must be heaven for mountain bikers (can take bikes up all the chairlifts in the area). Something different for us was watching ice hockey games in Morzine, fabulous! Swimming pool complex good (speedos only) with a smaller indoor area. Would recommend the restaurant - only pool I've been to with champagne and steak on the menu! Very friendly staff.

Great place for walking, especially enjoyed walking from St Jean D'Aulps to the monastery, again great food, simplistic reminiscent of its monastic days. Wide range of restaurants in Morzine ( we liked the Clinic D'Oeil especially) but to be honest, everywhere we went was good; Plat du Jour about €12 per person.

Would definitely recommend this house. The owner has been really friendly and easy to talk to, both beforehand and during our stay.

We stayed at Chalet Lucie in 2010 and again this year (2011). The chalet lives up to the lovely pictures with a great open plan top floor. Good cooking facilities, a large dining table, a pool table, amble seating, Large TV with DVD and Sky, and of course the WiFi, meant that an evening in was an attractive option.

4 bedrooms all with ensuite and plenty of hot water, take all the hassle out of getting in on an evening and getting out on the morning. And as you can see from the photos, the general standard of the place is top notch.

The chalet is a little too far out of town for walking to be a sensible option, but the bus stops are close by. Bus is good for the Morzine Slopes and for the Super Morzine lift (leading to Avoriaz). However, my preference is having my own transport. It makes shopping easy (good supermarket 3 mins drive away), eating in town (5 mins) and my preferred option for Avoriaz, driving to Les Prodains (10 mins ) and catching the chair lift or cable car there. Nice run down at the end of the day straight to the bar at the bottom :-) The chalet has plenty of it's own parking complete with a large car port (2 vehicles).

The chalet was great last year so we decided to return this year only to find it had news owners. They have made some small but extremely useful changes. The garage is now fitted out as a ski/board and boot room. This had been a miss the year before. There is a key system that means if your group splits up there's never any issues with organising who's got the key etc. Extra coat hangers in the hall. Little things that all help to make the holiday enjoyable and hassle free.

Lastly but not least, dealing with the owners was an absolute pleasure. They proved to be both flexible and helpful and I get the impression that they are interested in making your holiday fun. If you're looking at Morzine and you want a chalet sleeping around the 8 mark, I would put this one top of your list.

Very Stylish Chalet

  • 5 out of 5
8 of us stayed here in January 2009 for a week. It was brilliant ! The living room is superb with enough room for everyone to relax and enjoy some great evenings in. With the price of drinks in town this proved to be the best choice for some lively nights in. Roaring log fire,pool table, great balcony, superb kitchen facilities, beatiful leather sofas and large plasma TV - what more could you ask for?
The bedrooms were ideal. All have balconies and en-suite bathrooms and are clean and spacious. Get in quick and grab the master bedroom - its brilliant.!!!
The chalet is on the outskirts of the town centre, but it can be walked in approximately 15 minutes.
I would love to go back here and I would recommend this chalet to everyone.

our stay in chalet lucie

  • 5 out of 5
Last January (2008) we booked Chalet Lucie direct with the ownwers for a very reasonable price. we saw the pictures on the net and assumed it would be adequate for our needs.
It exceeded our expectations in every way and having just returned from a week in Courcheval, I can tell anyone who is interested in Chalet Lucie that the experience is above average.
Morzine is a low resort with fairly limited adventure but dont let this put you off.
A 30 minute journey gets you into the heart of Avoriaz which has enough skiing to last a lifetime.
I wanted to return to CL this year but was overruled by the team who wanted to go to Courche. At 10 e a pint and 6e for a cuppa it was an expensive holiday.
This chalet is 4 starplus and is one of the best we have used in the last 10 years.
It may be that we go back in 2010 if we all still have jobs and I dont get overruled!

Morzine is ideally located for access to both the massive Portes Du Soleil ski area with its 650 km of pistes and the Morzine/Les Gets ski areas with a further 120 km of pistes

The Morzine area is ideal for road cyclists, mountain bikers, golfers, swimmers and walkers in the summer months

There is a regular free bus service around the town which stops at the major ski-lifts - Super Morzine for Portes du Soleil and Pleney for Morzine/Les Gets; these buses stop just 200 metres from Chalet Lucie. These lifts are also open in the summer for walkers and mountain bikers

Situated 80km from Geneva airport, Morzine is just 32km and 35 minutes by car from Lac Leman (Lake Geneva)

Morzine has maintained its strong Savoyard character; at an altitude of 1000 m, its woody, hilly environment contrasts with the sheer mountains that surround it. There are several quality restaurants, bars and shops in the town that are open winter and summer

Ski: The Portes du Soleil ski area has 650 km of pistes with skiing for all standards; the Portes du Soleil is accessible by the Super Morzine lift in Morzine, the Ardent lift near Lac Montriond or the Prodains lift below Avoriaz.

The Morzine and Les Gets ski areas have a further 120 km of pistes with skiing for all standards; these areas are easily reached from the Pleney lift in Morzine or the Nyon lift at the edge of the town.

The two main ski lifts in Morzine, the Super Morzine for the Portes du Soleil and the Pleney for Morzine/Les Gets areas, are easily accessible by the free bus service which stops 200 metres from the chalet; the buses run every 20/30 minutes throughout the ski season. The buses also run during July and August

There is parking available at the bottom of the Ardent and Nyon lifts.
