La tete de l'elephant is a beautiful chalet with stunning views over the mountains nestled in the French Alps in the very French Village of St Jean D'Aulps just 10 minutes from the town of Morzine. This new and modern chalet was purchased by the current owners in July 2015 and it has been set up for renting over the ski season as well as all year round.

The chalet is about 1.20hrs drive from Geneva airport in the heart of the Portes du Soleil area which offers the largest international ski area in the world with over 650km of marked runs catering for all levels of skiing. In summer the region transforms to be one of Europe's most impressive mountain biking terrain with 350km of official tracks.

It is just a 10 minute walk to the shops, bars and restaurants in the village centre but benefits from a short walk to the ski bus stop of around 250 metres. It is in a tranquil setting surrounded by alpine meadows that the French Alps are famous for.

This rental accommodation has excellent views, log fire, Wi-Fi, TV, underfloor heating, sunshine terrace, balcony with stunning mountain views and all the modern conveniences you would expect from a newly built chalet.

The chalet is ideally situated for activity holidays such as skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, walking, hiking, swimming, watersports, fishing, golfing, rock climbing, white water rafting, parapenting, horse-riding and more.

A modern Carrefour hypermarket is only 5 minutes by car between St Jean and Morzine.The chalet is offered on a self catering basis for up to 12 people, it has five double bedrooms (3 with double beds, 1 with 2 sets of bunks, 1 with 1 set of bunks), a large fully equipped fitted kitchen, lounge/dining area, large outdoor covered terrace area, 2 x bathrooms, 2 extra toilets, a ski storage area, and a car port.

"Excellent property, great location"

We had a week in summer at the Elephants Head! We would usually go skiing in the Alps so a new experience for us to go in summer. Loads to do in the region, cycling, white water rafting, swimming, walking, ice hockey! etc etc. The property is brilliantly located, very convenient for Geneva airport, and convenient for lots of attractions in summer, and ski resorts in winter. Very spacious, beautifully furnished, a short walk into town for food and drinks in evening if you want to go out. It was so good we went back in winter! Check out the air horns, great for waking the kids up.

"Fantastic Chalet"

After going to 5 star ski chalets for over 10 years now, La tete de l'éléphant Chalet was just truly fantastic....Over the last 10 years I have been fortunate enough to stay in many beautiful place's across the Alps but the reason we keep coming back to the porte de soleil area is because of the absolute first class skiing, fun and good times we have had at the chalet. It has 5 bedrooms and is very nicely finished throughout in light pine. I would recommend La tete de l'éléphant ski chalet before any other chalet, In my opinion it is simply the best!
