Situated on the southern hillside of Morzine, overlooking the village, this bright modern chalet is a great base for a summer or winter holiday. Sitting on the sunny terrace, you can watch skiers on the pistes - it's a great vantage point for watching the torchlight descent!
Despite the chalet's quiet location, it's just a 15-minute walk to the Super Morzine telecabine and the bars, shops and restaurants of the town, so if you don't want to drive, you can park up your car and forget about it.
And after a busy day in the mountains, you can relax in the sauna at Chalet Kanga, or catch the last of the evening sun from the terrace.
Chalet Kanga is a bright, light-filled chalet for 10 (eight adults and two children), set in a residential area on the edge of Morzine. There are five bedrooms, set over two floors.
You'll enter the chalet on the upper floor, passing a useful cupboard before you get to the lovely double-height living area. Three sofas and extra chairs mean there is plenty of room for everyone to gather around the central woodburning stove and television.
The fully-equipped modern kitchen makes cooking a pleasure, and there's plenty of room for everyone to eat together at the dining table. Doors open on to the sunny terrace - why not wrap up and enjoy your coffee or a nightcap under the stars? In summer, it's a great place for a barbecue.
The bedrooms are on the floor below. There's a double room with an en suite bathroom plus two double rooms and a twin room, all with access to the garden. There's also a bedroom with bunk beds, a sauna, two shower rooms and a laundry room.
You can explore the whole of the Portes du Soleil ski area from this delightful Morzine chalet. You can even ski in to Switzerland, but be warned, only the most accomplished skiers should tackle the Swiss Wall - a huge mogul field which is classified as an orange route - too hazardous for a black! But with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities.
If you're not a skier, Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which also host ice hockey matches, and the local cinema often shows films in English. The more adventurous might like to try snowmobiling or ice-climbing on some of the area's frozen waterfalls, or discover the area in a more sedate manner on a sleigh ride.
Other ways to have fun include snowshoeing and sledging, while the Indiana adventure park offers a variety of activities for all ages.
In summer, the area is a great destination for an outdoor holiday. Walking, hiking and biking trails crisscross the mountains, and you can save your legs by taking the lift to the top and enjoying a leisurely descent.
You can swim, canoe or paddle board at nearby Lake Montriond, or just enjoy a gentle walk around its shores before lunch at the restaurant.
