chalet north start is a brand new chalet in morzine designed and fitted to the highest specification. it covers 3 floors and feels spacious and light, and there are views over the valley to the arresting peak of nantaux beyond.
the large open plan kitchen and living area has a comfortable seating area with a wood burning stove, a generous dining area and a sleek fitted kitchen. the living area has bifold doors leading on to a large balcony facing the mountains and with further windows the space feels incredibly light and airy.
bedrooms are all very spacious with wonderfully comfortable (single) beds and are all ensuite. there is a cosy playroom with tv and video games, a boot room with boot warmers and a utility room with washer and dryer.
returning from a hard day on the mountain you can unwind in the hot tub, relax in front of the wood burner or watch a movie in the playroom (or drink wine!)
the chalet is in a quiet location 1.5km from the town centre and it’s just a 2 minutes walk to the free hop on/off bus to town, which is just 5 minutes ride away. the nearest bar is 10 mins walk away. there is ample parking on the large drive if you are bringing a car.

morzine is a pretty alpine town situated close to the border with switzerland, linked to neighbouring avoriaz (very cool resort!) & les gets and the enormous portes du soleil ski area.
the portes du soleil region vies for the title of ‘largest ski area in europe’, with 212 interconnected lifts servicing a mind-boggling 650kms of runs sprawling across 12 areas, eight in france and six in switzerland. there are 273 marked ski runs as well as 216 km of cross-country trails. the portes du soleil region therefore offers a variety of skiing terrain to suit all abilities.
morzine sits in the haute savoie region of france just over an hour from geneva airport, making it one of the easiest resorts to reach from the uk, in around an hour.
