"perfect appartment in perfect location"
We have been skiing in Morillon for the last 5 years and we keep returning because we love the area so much. Having stayed at this apartment for the last 2 years we now feel we have found the perfect accomodation and have already booked for next year. It is in a great location where you can ski in and ski out. The lifts are very close by and also the ski school meeting area. The apartment is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is a pleasure to spend the evening in and cook as it is beautifully furnished and so cosey with lots of finishing touches. The sherpa supermarket is a 5 minute walk away and is very well stocked. The boot warmer is a very welcome addition, it is so lovely to put dry warm ski boots on in the mornings. Plenty of hot water and very warm. The owners are always very helpful, informative and accommodating.
We are very much looking forward to next years trip.

"A perfect spot for the family who want to forget about the car for a week"
We stayed here for a week with two children (7 & 9) and the apartment and resort were perfect. Being on the ground floor, it was very quick and easy to unload the car then forget about it for the week, as Les Esserts has everything you need on the doorstep. A five minute walk to main lift, Sherpa (well stocked mini-market) just one minute away, plus a pub, bakery, restaurant and hire shops all just a few minutes walk. The apartment itself suits a family of four with all the essentials plus a boot warmer, and balcony with afternoon sun as a bonus. The locker in the basement is just 16 steps down (my children counted) so skis, helmets and snowboard could be stored and retrieved with no fuss.
We would definitely recommend and will be going back

"Great apartment in an excellent location"
The apartment is immaculately presented and had everything we needed for the week. The location was excellent, being a very short walk to the ski lifts, ski hire shops, supermarket, bakery, shops and bar. The lifts can be seen from the balcony.The resort is family-friendly and peaceful in the evenings. It was great to be able to use the gondola to go down to the village to visit the small evening market in Morillon village. We only used the car once, to visit Samoens market, the roads were kept well-cleared, but there is really no need for a car during the stay. Wonderful green and blue pistes, especially Marvel and Cascades. Communication with the owner was excellent and they were very accommodating with respect to our late request to extend our stay. There is also an English contact locally in case of any problems. This is our third time skiing in the area and it was definitely our best experience so far.

The apartment is perfectly located for the slopes and amenities.
We will be back!
