Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday chalet in Montriond - 27th December week from £625pp

Close to lifts, above ground pool, 9 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 27

A warm welcome awaits you when you arrive at Chalet Koala along with plenty of good food, lots of wine and Great Company! The chalet is traditionally built in the Savoyard style with a blend of pine panelling, wooden beams and natural stone. Flexible accommodation in spacious light airy rooms and open plan living areas can comfortably cater for small groups, large families or chalet parties. Relaxation facilities include a table tennis room and a den with Wii, books, games and toys for all ages. The dinning room opens out onto the balcony, great views, tables and chairs, the lounge has comfy leather sofas, large open log fire, freesat TV, DVD, video and hifi system, even have a karaoke machine for your entertainment! There is a large garden for summer living with above ground pool heated with solar panels and two smaller paddling pools for little ones, basketball hoop, sun loungers, large table, chairs, fire pit with pizza stone and barbecue or for building snowmen or playing on sledges in the winter! The garden is safe for children and there is plenty of parking space

Winter time at Chalet Koala: Chalet Koala is well situated for the ardent lift, 5min by car or free ski bus which stops at the end of our drive and from there the world is your piste! Head over to Chatel or across to Avoriaz or into Switzerland with 650km of pistes no two days will be the same. We can arrange your ski hire in advance just let us know your size and height and ability. We can arrange tandem parapenting, the adventure of jumping off a mountain and landing on the slopes on skis or maybe try huskie sledding, night skiing on the floodlit Plenney or a night time skidoo ride! For those brave enough there is ice diving on Lake Montriond! After all this excitement you can relax in our cosy chalet warming your toes by the log fire while a sumptuous three course meal is prepared for you using fresh local produce and washed down with fine wine and maybe a drink or two from our honesty bar before heading off to bed and planning your adventures for the following day.

Summer time Alps: The Alps are so green in summer, the slopes turn to pastures with beautiful fauna and flora. The range of summer activities is wicked from mountain biking, parapenting, white water rafting, climbing, hiking, golf, fishing, swimming, canoeing, hydro-speeding, canoeing, archery, the list is endless! Morzine and Les Gets boasts some of the best mountain bike terrain in the world with first class championships been held each year in the area.

You could just laze by a lake, paint or take photos of the incredible scenery. The Alps have something to offer everyone in summer.

Chamonix, Annecy and Geneva are all easy driving from your base at Koala. Sail, windsurf, wakeboard or soak up the sun on Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). Visit the spa town of Evian famous for it's water, or take a boat ride across the lake to Lausanne for a day on the Swiss side. The list is endless, it just goes on and on!

We subscribe to the multi-pass so our guests can enjoy the benefits of just 2€ per person per day with cost getting cheaper for more days with entry to swimming pools, ice skating, mountain lifts for walkers, tennis courts and lots more including discounts on other attractions.

I have just got back from my 12th Year of visiting this Chalet and about my 15th/16th Visit overall.

As ever the prices were very reasonable

Julia and the chalet staff Roger and Monika were excellent as ever

Food and accommodation were great

i would recommend this to anyone who is planning to go to the Porte Du soleil as it is excellent for access into lindarette and access to the rest of the Porte

Accommodation is great for families group ski weekends or jsut couples getting away

when we stay each year at half term we take over the whole chalet and there are 27 of us!!

Thnaks gain for looking after us so well Julia

Montriond is 3 km from Morzine, in the vast skiing area of the Ported du Soleil, with 650 km of linked pistes, only 75mins from Geneva airport, making it a base suitable for weekend breaks.

Other Activities: mountain boarding, snowboarding, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, ice diving, rock climbing, if the sport isn't on the doorstep then it will be no more than a 30 minute drive with lots of water sports on lake Geneva!

Ski: Chalet Koala is in the heart of one of the most dramatic and exciting winter resorts, the Portes du Soleil, with over 650km of pistes, 228 lifts and 12 stations criss crossing France and Switzerland, no two days need be the same! The lift from Ardent, 5min by car, takes you to Linderat where your day begins with lifts to Avoriaz, Chatel and into Switzerland! The Ported du Soleil is suitable for all levels with sedate nursery slopes for the beginner or the rush of adrenaline whilst conquering the infamous 'swiss wall' for the hardened skier! Practice your 'big airs' in the snow parks or enjoy the thrill of skiing through the powder and trees into Linderats. There is something for everyone at every level, skier or boarder. Guests just keep coming back finding new runs and places to explore. We can arrange your ski hire and book ski lessons for you.
