A big thank you to you & your family for being wonderful guests. Best wishes Sarah & Richard
Wonderfully appointed chalet in a spectacular setting.
From our very first enquiry until the time we were actually staying in the chalet, the communication from Sarah and Richard was really excellent, which was hugely helpful to us, and certainly helped us to get the most our of our holiday. Also Andrea is available nearby if needed.
The chalet itself is really well appointed, there is everything you could possibly need. The view from most rooms, and the verandah, is spectacular. The rooms are all lovely, with lots of bathrooms.
Within a ten minute walk are a couple of bars and restaurants, and also the bus stop - catching the bus to Les Houches or Chamonix is really straight forward - just a few minutes on the bus either way.
We visited in the summer, and there is so much to do in the surrounding area, we would certainly like to return.
Chalet La Moraine a lovely home from home
As soon as I saw the photos and description of the chalet I knew that I wanted to stay here. Sarah made the booking process really easy and provided some really great information about the property and the local area before we travelled. Any questions that we had were answered and Sarah could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
On arrival we found the chalet to be exactly as advertised, every member of our family party was really pleased with our choice of chalet. The description was exactly as written, except for the special extra touches which had been added that made our stay even better.
The location of the property is one of its best assets, it is in a quiet area, yet only a very short walk away from both the bus and train stops. This location gives you the opportunity to explore the area with such ease and the transport cards which are provided enable free bus and train journeys.
There is a bakery literally within a couple of minutes walk which we visited on several days. Both Chamonix and Les Houches are within easy reach for restaurants, cafes and supermarkets.
Before we travelled Sarah had provided a lot of information on activities and trips in the area, there is a folder of information in the chalet too which has brochures and timetables.
We all felt really at home in the chalet, there were 9 of us staying there and it accommodated us all well. The open plan kitchen lounge/diner is an ideal space for a group and the bedrooms and bathrooms are all very nicely appointed.
We all had such a great time at La Moraine and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.
Simply, the best!!!
If you want some precious memories in a magical, luxurious, homely chalet, this is your stop. The skiing is simply a bonus. We first went to Chalet La Moraine in 2016, due to a good friend’s recommendation. We heard that it was a gorgeous chalet, sleeping ten people with five bathrooms, a hot tub and a sauna. We arrived and it was magical! When the snow is falling and the fire is burning and the coffee machine is on, there is simply nowhere better. Our family of six is unbelievably jammy to have been twice now. (At risk of sounding very sad, barely a day goes by without one of us reminiscing about a favourite moment there.) The whole place is a gift, it’s so delightful. Skiing is great - at Cormayeur through the mountain (£50 through the tunnel so not cheap but gorgeous views and delicious Italian food). Or locally at Les Houches - perfect for intermediate and beginner skiining. Family passes allow cheaper rates for larger families so we loved that aspect. The owners recommended a ski rental place where they have an arrangement for good prices. There are only two drawbacks: 1) that we can’t go more often, and don’t really want to go anywhere else, and, 2), it’s so supremely comfy in the chalet, we don’t always want to venture away from it and into the mountains.
Genuinely, the chalet is top drawer. The owners are very friendly. I can’t imagine anyone not liking this hidden gem. Words can barely describe its delights. It might be a cliché, but, simply, it is; *The best*!!
Excellent Stay - Hope to be back!
Richard & Sarah made this a very delightful visit. The attention to detail, including the pre and post visit communication was flawless. We had a bottle of Champagne and a even some dinner waiting for us. After a long journey, we were most happy to see that. The living area was perfect to gather after a long day on the slopes to chat with cheese and wine. The hot tub is very large and was awesome, looking up at the Mont Blanc. The hosts even go so far as emptying it out after each guest - was most impressed by that. I would only recommend having a 4x4 or chains if heavy snow is expected. You MUST get your skis & boots if renting from Bertrand in Les Houches @Ski-Perf. We had an awesome stay, and thanks for dialing in the massive snow dumps, we all enjoyed that! Was a gentleman's trip, so now have to come back with spouses & families - Hope to be back! Highly recommend. Thank you Richard & Sarah.
Excellent Chalet in a brilliant location to enjoy all Chamonix has to offer
We were delighted to find somewhere so close to the busy life of Chamonix town centre, but hidden away in such a beautiful location. The views are totally stunning. Sarah & Richard were so helpful & genuinely keen to make sure we had a wonderful time at their beautiful Chalet…..We all loved it & are already planning our next trip!
The Chamonix Valley is a mecca for winter and summer outdoor pursuits: mountaineering, hiking, climbing, biking, paragliding, plus fabulous skiing and all the winter activities!
There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Chamonix and Les Houches, perfect for apres ski or indeed any time of the day eating and drinking. There are a wide selection of shops in Chamonix to suit all tastes and budgets from Chanel to supermarkets and the weekly Saturday morning market is great for picking up local produce.
A sports centre, swimming pool, tennis courts, cinema screening English and French films and a golf course all complement the local amenities in the Chamonix Valley.
Chamonix is situated close to the Mont Blanc tunnel and the Italian border. Spectacular mountain scenery, majestic ice falls and glaciers, one of Europe's highest cable cars and a ski season into May, all mean that Chamonix is hard to beat.
Other Activities: Rock Climbing
Ski: The Chamonix Valley has some of the best skiing in the world & hosts the famous Kandahar Mens's Alpine World Cup race.
There are 6 main ski areas in the Chamonix valley & they vary greatly from challenging off piste, to the valley blanche a legendary run of 22kms, to the famous Kandahar run in Les Houches.
Les Houches is great for intermediates (& also beginners) & is one of the best places to ski when the weather is bad. The Brevent ski area & Aiguille du Midi lift (for Valley Blanche) are both in Chamonix, which is a 5 minutes drive away. The other areas; Les Grands Montets in Argentiere, La Flegere in Le Praz and the Le Balme area in Le Tour are in different parts of the valley but are easy to get to from the Chalet. Courmayeur in Italy, is also another alternative as the Mont Blanc Unlimited ski pass covers the Courmayeur ski area
