The Old Macaroni features hidden rooms, individually-designed bathrooms and bedrooms, a luxury cinema, huge outdoor deck, hot tub and a glass-fronted barrel sauna, framing one of the best views in Morzine.
Taking influence from the owner's favourite novels, each bedroom has been carefully designed to represent subtle elements of the book it is named after. The Harry Potter children’s bedroom is every child’s dream, with four built-in cabin beds which each have a double bed inside them. Each room has bespoke king size beds, an en-suite shower/bath room and a smart TV.
A large boot room allows ample practical space for guests' outdoor clothes, skis and boots. The entrance level of the chalet has been transformed into a beautiful open dining, kitchen and entertaining space with a bedroom and a spa treatment room leading off the corridor.
As with everything in the chalet, the kitchen has been custom made with every detail taken into consideration, including a professional teppanyaki plate. Overlooking a large dining room, the kitchen has an open-plan layout that lends itself to entertaining and being looked after by our chef and hosts. As well as the dining table, there is a further seating area on this level which is perfect for a relaxed cup of coffee or a dedicated children’s table. A glass floor over the dining table gives a glimpse of the living room above!
A beautiful spa treatment room is located on this level and has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing massage or beauty treatment, including an internal shower and relaxing mood lighting. This room has been cleverly designed to offer further accommodation should you require it. A hidden full double bed, with proper mattress, can be lowered down to create a further bedroom for larger groups/families.
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemmingway provides the inspiration for the first bedroom in the chalet. A sumptuous turquoise velvet bed and touches of blue give this bedroom a bright but calm atmosphere. As in each bedroom, the en-suite bathroom is bespoke.
Upstairs, the view from the lounge will take your breath away. The upper level of the chalet comprises of the main living area and three bedrooms. Floor to ceiling glazed bi-folding doors open one entire side of the lounge to take in the most spectacular view of Morzine, above which The Old Macaroni is perched on the hillside. The main living room and lounge overlook the church and town hall and take in the view of the whole valley, as well as the Pleney and Nyon pistes. The lounge also features a grand piano and a beautiful log-burning stove. The bi-folding doors open up onto a balcony that wraps around the chalet and offers the perfect spot from which to watch the weekly Pleney fireworks display and torch light decent.
For those who need some space to work away from the crowd, an office is situated on this level, albeit you may not realise it at first! A secret doorway leads through to a surprisingly spacious office where you can be undisturbed and work peacefully within the chalet.
The second bedroom is named after The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and is befitting of its royal name. A grand, burgundy velvet bed has views out of floor to ceiling windows that open onto a balcony providing a quiet, private spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or a quiet glass of wine. After a long day skiing, nothing could be more welcome than a relaxing bath. A standalone, rolltop bath has its own mezzanine above the bedroom, which also takes in the view of the Pleney slopes and Point de Nyon. A further shower room completes this bedroom and is as spectacular as the rest of the chalet. A fabulous double shower makes this bathroom a design feature in itself.
The third bedroom, created with inspiration for All Men are Mortal, has a true boutique hotel feel to it. Navy velvet with bright pink and green accents and crisp white linen give this room a modern edge. It is open to a huge shower and dressing room giving the bedroom has an open and airy feel. Sliding glass doors open on to a private balcony with stunning views across the valley.
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak lends itself to the ornate fourth bedroom. This bedroom is beautifully lit with a soft, romantic feel to it. A beautiful, large en-suite shower room continues the design with attention to detail everywhere from the towel rails to the shower fixtures and stunning tiles. As with all of the bedrooms, there is ample storage space and each room is very spacious – perfect for a luxury holiday.
A mezzanine level has been designed to offer an exciting children’s room, but cleverly accommodates adults as well. Whilst primarily built with children in mind, the Harry Potter room has four beautiful built in cabin beds, each with their own curtains for privacy. Each of these beds, however, is a full size double bed with proper mattress, meaning that the room can easily accommodate adults. The mezzanine is open, allowing adults to keep an eye on children from the living room. There is a large floor space in the room where kids can play with toys, watch TV or read any of the books from the bookcase.
Further entertaining space can be found in the lower level of the chalet where you will find the cinema. Tiered seating and art deco lighting are reminiscent of the traditional movie halls, but the bright pink and purple velvet seating give it a luxurious modern twist. The state-of-the-art, integrated surround sound and screen evoke the real cinema feel and, when the lights go down, it genuinely feels like you are at the movies. Huge custom made bean bags provide extra seating.
