Accommodation

Private room

Enjoy a weeks ski holiday in the picturesque village of Morzine in the French Alps.  Morzine is part of the Portes du Soleil, with the resorts of Les Gets and Avoriaz only a ski-lift away.  The Portes du Soleil spans two countries – France and Switzerland and fourteen resorts.  This huge area is an obvious rival to the Three Valleys and for the title of ‘largest ski area in Europe’, but lift passes, hotels and restaurants are all cheaper here.

The Chalet

The Chalet Catherine is a stylish modern chalet with traditional features. A spacious lounge/bar with relaxing sofas, large TV screen to watch your favourite UK TV shows and dining room where you’ll be served wonderful food with stunning views of the Pléney.

All bedrooms are en-suite and individually styled, comfortable 1000 pocket spring beds, white Egyptian cotton bed linen, throws, fluffy towels, bath robes, toiletries and hair dryers.

Modern day ski essentials have not been forgotten, sauna, massage, boot warmers, hired ski equipment delivery to chalet and WiFi throughout.

Good food is an essential ingredient of every chalet holiday. From the welcoming glass of bubbly and appetising canapés on your first evening, your chef sets the tone for a week of mouth-watering cuisine.

Your day will start with a cooked breakfast or porridge if you prefer; all served with fruit juice, cereals, yoghurt, freshly baked bread, croissants, jams, and a selection of teas and fresh coffee.

Afternoon tea will be waiting for you with freshly baked cakes, bread, jam, tea, coffee or hot chocolate.  Aperitifs and canapés are followed by a four course dinner which includes delicious local cheeses, and all complemented by a selection of quality French wines.

There is always one night off per week when you are free to explore the large number of Morzine restaurants who provide a great choice of local food to suit all tastes and budgets.
