This bright, contemporary chalet for up to 10 guests can be found in the Pied de la Plagne area of Morzine, just a few minutes drive from the centre of the resort. It's close enough so that you can enjoy all the restaurants, bars and shops the village has to offer, but at the end of the day, you'll find the peaceful setting of Chalet Solaurine the ideal place to relax.
The chalet offers a fabulous view from the village of Montriond and the lake round to Roc d'Enfer, which is best enjoyed while relaxing in the hot tub on the terrace.
Whether you decide to visit in the summer or the winter, there's plenty going on in Morzine, making it perfect for family holidays. The spacious terrace on two sides of the chalet means you will always find a place in the sun, and there are also lovely walks along the river.
The accommodation at Chalet Solaurine is set over two floors.
The open plan living area on the ground floor features a bright and comfortable living area with a woodburning stove and access to the terrace. There's also a dining area and a well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. This floor also has a toilet, an office and an entrance hall with a useful cupboard for your outdoor gear.
There are five bedrooms on the first floor. Two of the double bedrooms have access to the sunny balcony. There's also a twin room with an en suite shower room, another double bedroom and the master bedroom. There's a separate toilet and another shower room on this floor.
The chalet also has a garage with a ski room and a useful laundry room.
The sunny terrace has plenty of space to barbecue, eat al fresco or just catch the sun - and don't forget the hot tub, the perfect place to relax after an active day in the mountains.
The town of Morzine is in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, making the neighbouring resorts of Les Gets and Avoriaz easily accessible.
You can also ski in to Switzerland, and with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. The ski bus stops near Chalet Solaurine, making this property a great base for fans of winter sports.
Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which are often host to 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. Back at the chalet there is a large terrace and flat garden, perfect for enjoying the winter sunshine with a cup of coffee and children making snowmen!
In the spring and summer, the lush green slopes around Morzine become a haven for walkers, mountain bikers and thrill-seekers.
The lifts will transport you and your bike up the mountains, leaving you to come back down at your leisure. Take a picnic, and make a day of it!
