Do self catering in style! A fabulous open plan living/dining/kitchen/pool table area on the top floor with 4 en-suite bedrooms on the floor below.
Occupying the top two floors of the chalet with two privately-owned apartments underneath, this stunning luxury self-catering duplex apartment is situated on a quiet road on the edge of Morzine. Just 25 minutes walk from the centre of the village, and only 200 metres from the ski bus stop, it is ideally situated for both small groups and families. Access to restaurants, night life and the ski slopes surrounding Morzine is easy, and the chalet benefits from a peaceful location.
Ideally sleeping 8 people self catering, with all bedrooms en-suite and with balconies, this lovely chalet was completed in 2008 to a very high specification.
Guests can enjoy breathtaking mountain views from one of the many balconies, or relax in front of the wood fire in the centre of the open plan living area. The interior combines modern luxuries with traditional Savoyard charm, providing a stylish and comfortable ambiance - perfect for socializing after a busy day in the mountains
The apartment details:
The four bedrooms are on the entrance level of the apartment. Each bedroom has en-suite facilities, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers, bedside tables, and double doors opening onto a balcony. One bedroom has a king size double bed, the other three bedrooms have twin beds. One of the twin rooms has a bath with shower attachment, the other three have walk-in showers. Two of the twin rooms have space for a fold-up single bed (ideal for children/teenagers) thus increasing the total number of occupants to ten. The other twin room has space for a baby cot.
These extra beds, baby cots, high chairs and stair gate can be ordered free of charge when booking.
All bedding and towels are included in the rental price.
There are stairs up to the stunning top floor, which incorporates the kitchen, dining and living areas plus the desk and the pool table. There is also another toilet on this floor.
There are two balconies accessible from the living and dining areas.
The secure ski boot room (for our apartment only) is situated close to the front door of the chalet and has plenty of space to store ski boots, skis, snow boards and helmets, thus avoiding having them all in the apartment. This area is ideal for storing bikes in the summer.

About the owners:
We purchased our apartment in Chalet Lucie in December 2010. My wife and I love skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and walking and cycling in the summer; after many years of visiting ski resorts throughout Europe we decided we would like to have our own place where we could stay and our family could visit. We wanted somewhere in a quiet area, big enough for our family, close to the town and the lifts with a bus service so we don't have to drive every day. We wanted easy access to the motorways to enable us to drive from England and close proximity to an international airport. We wanted a resort that offered great skiing but was also attractive in the summer - we think we have the ideal place!
We stay at the apartment several times throughout the year and love being there - it is our second home.
My wife and I often stay there on our own and don't feel it is too big for us, yet when our family visit we don't feel cramped as the living area is so big and the bedrooms all have their own bathrooms.
We hope you will like it as much as we do!
Please note this is a non-smoking chalet. There are two parking spaces available for our apartment. This apartment may not be suitable for someone who is infirm as there are six steps to the apartment and a flight of steps between the two floors. There are further steps down to the garden area. There is a designated lockable boot/ski/snowboard room adjacent to the main front door to enable the apartment to remain clear of such items. Please note pets are not allowed. The lockable boot room is ideal as a cycle store in the summer months. There is a large garden with a decking area and a table and chairs.
Please note winter bookings and July and August bookings are usually Saturday - Saturday only - please check with the owner Peter Trend.
