Why Sarah chose La Rivière-Enverse

Ten years ago when skiing with friends we fell in love with 265 kilometres of pistes across five resorts and knew immediately we wanted to come back year after year. Since then the Grand Massif, and in particular Morillon, has maintained its old world charm while catering for the needs of the modern skier. Every year we return to experience this slow pace of life, rejuvenate our spirits and soak up the uniquely French atmosphere that Morillon offers.

What makes this chalet unique

Nothing beats waking up to stunning 180 degree views of the magnificent Alpes and Chalet Setanta has the comfiest beds in the Alpes! After a hard day of adventure and fun in the mountains the blazing log fire of Chalet Setanta, with Nicola's award winning pastries are your only answers.

In the Summer, barbecue on our magnificent terrace while watching the mountains turn pink as the sun slowly sets.

Une semaine à Setanta du 22 au 29 juillet 2017

  • 5 of 5

Chalet très confortable et idéal pour passer des vacances en famille sans se gêner :

6 chambres pour 3 couples et 5 enfants en bas âge. 4 superbes salles de bains bien équipées. une terrasse avec une vue magnifique sur la vallée du Giffre et sur les montagnes.

A proximité du lac de Morillon et non loin du cirque de Sixt Fer à Cheval, une balade inoubliable ! Je recommande vivement ce chalet...

Chalet Setanta spectacular Morillon Setting

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Setanta offers luxury with a homely comfort and has all the holiday facilities that you'd wish for! We were part of a large group and enjoyed fine dining, a leisurely setting with all the assistance to make our holiday easy and relaxing. Our ski equipment, together with transport to and from the ski slopes was arranged for us and it was of the highest quality. Comfort, flexibility, entertainment and relaxation is the name of the game at Chalet Setanta.

Great quality chalet, exceptional service

  • 5 of 5

Chalet is well furnished, warm, very clean, very comfortable beds with superb views. What sets this chalet apart is the smooth running, from the transfer from the airport, to the welcome drinks. Followed by ski equipment delivery direct to the chalet, advise on ski passes and expert knowledge on the area. At not least the fantastic food. The owners have thought of everything and should be congratulated!

Idyllic Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

There are just so many positives about this chalet and the hosts - the hospitality, food, convenience, services, cleanliness, comfortable beds...the list goes on. We have just returned from a great week of skiing in this wonderful chalet and can only speak positively about it. The hosts are available at all times (6 days a week) to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We even took a day to go on a guided shoeshoeing tour at Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval - this also was arranged by the owner - and what a lovely experience. The seamless organisation of everything meant that, from the collection point at the airport to the drop-off point at the airport, the only thing you had to worry about was enjoying yourself! Bravo to Sarah and team.

Great Chalet with fantastic personal service

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Setanta offers a great personal service. From the speedy transfer, warm welcome, ski's delivered to the chalet, excellent food, very comfortable beds and super clean what more could you want! In addition we were given advise on the local area and also they organised a guide to take us snow shoeing.

Chalet Setanta-

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Sentanta Chalet, food was excellent hard to beat in a top hotel! Lovely open fire, friendly atmosphere and great skiing. Quality of accomodation was excellent too- comfortable bed, clean and very well maintained. The lift to and from the slopes made the trip very easy and hassle free- a great break altogether. Highly recommended.

Morillion is an unspoilt alpine village nestled between the mountains in the Giffre Valley. It features several excellent restaurants serving Savoyard cuisine. Morillon also has a bakers, butchers, supermarket, pharmacy and sports equipment hire shops.

Take the bubble lift up from Morillon to 265km of piste with plenty of routes for all abilities. The Grand Massif resorts are all linked. The closest, Samoens, is only 2km away and a wonderful Asterix style old medieval town with many interesting shops and restaurants. The Giffre Valley is beautiful in winter covered in snow and the traditional Savoyard farmhouses are decorated with twinkling lights for Christmas.

In summer pink and red flowers spill from window boxes filling the valley with colour. The valley is carpeted in green and the mountains look spectacular against the blue alpine sky. The Blue Lake in Morillon offers safe swimming, gentle cycle tracks along the river and plenty of activities.

Other activities in the area include: white water rafting; mountain walks and hiking; mountain biking (hire available locally); parapenting or simply relaxing and enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains.

Morillon holds the official ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ designation for its excellent children facilities.
