Chalet Lumière enjoys an ideal location, set in a peaceful enclave just outside the busy resort of Morzine and 10 minutes from the ski lifts. It cleverly combines the authenticity of a traditional Alpine home with all the modern conveniences of a luxury ski chalet.
One end of the open-plan, wood-panelled living area is dominated by a large stone fireplace. At the other end of the living area is a large dining table, with superb views across the valley to the mountains that make up the Portes du Soleil ski region beyond. A selection of well-chosen decorative accessories, from stone-base lamps to quirky framed photographs, are scattered throughout the room.
Upstairs, each of the cosy bedrooms feels like a luxurious mountain 'hut', with sloping ceilings, pale wood floors and walls. Beds are piled high with snowy linen and Alpine-themed scatter cushions.
An added bonus is the chalet's outside space, from the alfresco seating area to the luxurious outdoor hot tub.
Katy was extremely responsive and helpful at all times. We had two young children so Katy's advice was very helpful, in where we could keep them entertained.
Montriond is an unspoilt Savoyard village in the Haute-Savoie area of the French Alps. With its pretty church, tree-lined square and traditional Alpine architecture, many believe it's the most attractive village in the region.
