About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, WiFi, satellite TV

Easy access to Morzine Avoriaz and the Portes du Soleil ski area.

Morzine is only 2 miles away with cable cars to the Morzine/Les Gets ski area and Avoriaz via the Super Morzine link.

A short 5 mile drive from the chalet to the Ardent cable car gives direct access to Avoriaz. This is our preferred route since there is unlimited free car parking at Ardent and it is quicker than the links from Morzine.

The Portes du Soleil is one of the largest linked ski areas in the world with a vast 650km of pistes; runs for every ability, fantastic snow record, and shortest transfer time from Geneva airport.

Chalet Jordan is a traditional chalet full of old fashioned Alpine charm with many charming touches. But despite its traditional Savoyard style, the chalet is extremely well equipped. Comfortable chairs are grouped around the wood burning fireplace in the sitting area. If you tire of supping wine around the fireplace, you can take a sauna, watch satellite TV, access the internet or play table tennis.

The chalet is situated in the secluded, sunny little village of Essert la Pierre, just 2 miles from the resort of Morzine. Outside is an enclosed garden with a beautiful wooden mini chalet for children to play in.

There are four bedrooms, one is a large family room with one double and two single beds, two double bedrooms and one twin room with two single beds.

About James Norris

I've been coming to Morzine for my holidays for 25 years, first as a teenager with my parents and sister and now with my own young family. We come back as often as we can to Chalet Jordan and rent out the weeks for the rest of the year. I organise bookings from the UK while my parents manage the property and welcome guests in Morzine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The chalet is in a beautiful, quiet village, with fantastic views. Access to Morzine and other places was really easy. We had a great holiday there.

A wonderful chalet in beautiful surroundings, well presented, comfortably appointed, cosy feel.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Chalet Jordan over Christmas - a party of 8 1/2 family members with 4 1/2 more living nearby and joining us for most of the time. The chalet layout coped admirably with 12 adults, with the games room being an invaluable additional space. For those of us staying there, the bedrooms were perfectly configured with bathrooms up and down. The surrounding countryside is of course spectacular and the Chalet location was ideal. We had a fire every night (although it wasn't that cold! ) which created a wonderful atmosphere. Thank you for welcoming us personally on our arrival and for providing the goodie basket and the Christmas tree and decorations which really got us into the festive spirit. Sadly we never got to use the Sauna but the children loved the playhouse. The running mountain water trough is ideal for keeping all the wine & beer cold! All in all we were very comfortable and found the chalet to be clean, well equipped and everything worked. We hope to come again if we can muster the numbers!

Best regards, Ian & Sherrie Spurrier and family, Crowthorne, Berkshire, UK.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Jordan stands in a beautiful French village, just a few km from Morzine. Access to the slopes is very easy, with the lifts at Ardent a short drive away going directly to Avoriaz and the Portes du Soleil. You will, however, need a car to get around.

We've spent may happy holidays here and we've already booked to come again next winter.

The chalet is large and spacious, with plenty of space for our family including young kids. All the rooms are nicely furnished and there is a fully equipped kitchen and proper dining table.

Entertainment wise, there was plenty to keep everyone busy: satellite TV, table tennis, table football (a recent addition, I believe), kids chalet in the garden and a sauna!

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thanks for your kind remarks. We look forward to seeing you again next year. As you say a car is essential for a stay in Chalet Jordan. Our regular clients often see this as an advantage. It gives them the flexibility to try different ski access points, all within five minutes drive.

An authentic Alpine getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chalet Jordan towards the end of the winter season, a great time to travel with young children as it's sunnier and the days less cold.

I couldn't recommend it more. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you have a car, its location couldn't be better. It's in the middle of an old traditional Alpine village, which has more charm than staying in the resort, plus there are lots of great walks on your doorstep. There is the biggest supermarket a five minute drive away and the skiing at Avoriaz is easy to get to thanks to the super car-park and fast lift at Ardent (perhaps Morzine's best kept secret in terms of lifts)

The chalet was great for kids. Huge bedrooms and a lovely garden with their own 'Alpage' to play in meant they couldn't be happier. For grownups, there were games, a sauna and English TV. The chalet came with all the kitchen items you could need.

We found it clean and nicely decorated in a traditional Alpine style.

All in all, a great stay. We'll be coming back and couldn't recommend it more...

Fantastic summer break in a beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family of four in August 2011 for a two week stay. The chalet was immaculate on arrival and there is lots of space in all the bedrooms and in the open plan living area. We travelled with our two children under 3 and the chalet is really great for children as there is a contained garden with a play chalet in it and for older children there is a table tennis and table football room. The village in which the chalet is situated is traditional, tranquil and within very easy reach of Morzine. Highly recommended.

Large and comfortable chalet

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Jordan is large and extremely comfortable being within easy reach of any of the main lift areas on the Portes Du Soleil and supported by a great local Champion supermarket (much cheaper than the Shoppi in Morzine). Those considering this chalet should not be put off by the driving (it is easy) or the location.

Very nice holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the house! We enjoyed the sauna and the Cheminée a lot! Thais also for the nice welcome Package! There is lots of space and the beds are of good quality. We had lots of snow- but the streets to the house and to the ski-lift Ardent (10-15 min drive) were well prepared so that winter tyres were sufficient. The ski-ressort is really great - for all levels of skiing.
