The Boutique Chalet Company was set up in 2011 by Chris and Sarah Hamblin out of a passion for interior design, excellent food and wine, and of course, the mountains. Having skied and worked in many of the French alpine resorts, we fell in love with Morzine, a traditional Savoie town in the heart of the Portes du Soleil.
The Portes du Soleil offers a unique set of mountain ranges that span France and Switzerland. The range of runs here is immense whether you're skiing them in the winter or hiking and cycling in the summer. The view is constantly changing. Two days are never the same.
The company prides itself on offering luxury ski and summer holidays. From the moment you first enquire you'll receive a personal service to make sure every detail of your holiday is exactly as you would desire. We want to make sure that a trip with The Boutique Chalet Company is a truly unforgettable experience.
Chris & Sarah Hamblin purchased this chalet in 2011
After an extensive property search covering many towns and villages in the French Alps we found Chalet Twenty26, in the small hamlet of La Boucherie just outside of Morzine's old town centre. In the winter we can see the lifts and pistes of Morzine and there are several excellent off-piste routes back to the chalet. Come summer the walking and cycling trails from our doorstep are incredible - further up the Vallee de la Manche is a protected nature reserve which offers some of the best hiking in the Alps and some stunning 3000m+ peaks.
The chalet itself had huge potential and a wonderful setting but needed considerable work. We set about renovating the property over an 18 month period in which time it was stripped back to it's shell, re-configured and comprehensively styled throughout. This gave us the opportunity to create a property which not only looks great, but really works for guests, affording them total comfort and luxury on their holiday, making it the perfect place to relax away from home.
Our vision was to create a stunning mountain home, that worked equally well in the summer and winter. Having worked in many chalets before we wanted to get all the little touches right... the bedrooms are all a good size and there's enough seating for all our guests in the spacious living areas. Extra features include a convenient boiling water tap for instant tea and coffee, a large locker room for your mountain kit, good Wi-Fi signal throughout the chalet and the ability to stream music straight from your iPhone. The cinema room features a stunning large projection screen and Marantz surround system. The spa facilities include a divine Jacuzzi and a charming barrel sauna. The gardens are extensive with plenty of places to relax and there's even a pétanque (boules) pitch to play on.
Chalet Twenty26 is located at the start of the Vallee de la Manche, an idyllic and private location yet only moments from the centre of Morzine. Our nearest lift is the Nyon cable car, just 500m away, but our in-resort chauffeur service will take you to any of the major lift hubs so you can quickly access all that the Portes du Soleil has to offer.
