Just back from a great 7 nights at Le Sappy in Morzine. The location is incredible, with great views across Morzine and very easy access down to the shops and restaurants (the uphill return being slightly harder...). We used Morzine as a base to explore the wider area, including a day trip to Chamonix Mont-Blanc, as well as a couple of days cycling, taking in Col de l'Encrenaz (twice, because the road to Ramaz was evidently shut), Col de la Joux Plane and Avoiraz (the Col de la Joux Verte from Morzine). If you are visiting in September/October, it's worth noting this is the off-season and so a lot of work is underway on the roads. Most cols had at least minor roadworks in place, but in other instances (e.g. Joux Plane from Morzine), they are completely impassable on weekdays.
The apartment itself is mostly well kitted out. The kitchen seems very new, with a good oven and hob and plenty of pots, pans and utensils for all your cooking needs. The balcony is large, with seating for 4 people and stunning views and there's plenty of hot water for showers. You also get use of a lockable 'cave' which easily handled 2 bikes and 2 bike boxes with room to spare, so if you're cycling of skiing, there's plenty of secure storage.
Things to consider are that this is a top floor apartment and therefore is built into the sloping roof. The ceilings in both bedrooms are very low - lower than I'd anticipated from the photographs. They're very cosy, but everyone has bumped their head on the beams. I'd say you'll only do it once and learn to adjust,but someone who shall remain nameless managed to do it once a night getting out of bed...!
Jon (the owner) was great in the lead up to and during our stay, with regular communication and made it all very easy. Even accommodated friends joining us for a couple of nights and had the second room prepared for them.
This is a 5 star location and owner in my opinion. The 4 star rating reflects that some of the furnishing is a bit tired - e.g. the sofa has lost most of it's cushioning. Nothing major and I expect this is just part of the natural cycle of a rental property and items reaching a point where they need refreshed. Would recommend this property to others.
We stayed for three nights to enjoy the mountains on our bikes. The apartment was clean, well furnished and perfectly suitable for four adults (cosy). The location was great, just a few minutes cycle into the centre of Morzine. There is a bike store (lockable) in the basement and plenty of room for storage. Recommended.
