Chalet | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Welcome to Chalet Brochaux, a beautiful alpine chalet within the famous Vallee D'Aulps, close to Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets, and the surrounding Portes Du Soleil area of the Rhone-Alps. The chalet can sleep 6-8 people in comfort on a self-catered basis, and gives perfect access to all alpine sports for which this region is known as one of the best in the world, both in winter and summer.
Chalet Brochaux is perfectly situated just a short drive down the Vallee D'Aulps from the main towns of Morzine and Montriond, in the village of Le Biot. Situated at 900m, the Chalet is on the edge of Le Biot, at the start of the infamous Col Du Corbier climb, which is a 'must do' for cyclists in the area during the summer.
The Chalet also offers perfect access to the 650kms a skiing on offer within the Portes Du Soleil area, being only a short bus or car journey - 12kms - from the Ardent, Pleney or Super-Morzine lifts; the lifts at St Jean D'Aulps are also only 6.5kms away, offering access to the tranquil Roc D'Enfer ski area.
Being a year round resort, the Morzine area also offers wonderful access to the mountains via selected lifts for walkers, climbers and mountain bike enthusiasts. Due to its position in the vallee, the chalet also offers easy access to Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), and the international airport beyond, which is less than 60kms from the Chalet.

The Rhone/French Alps region
Le Biot is a small village in the Vallee D'Aulps, and offers the perfect location to visit the beautiful surrounding areas, whether on foot, bike, or skis!
The area is well known for both winter and summer alpine sports, so please see what is on offer around the Rhone-Alps, and more specifically the Portes Du Soleil area.
Highlights in the immediate area include Lac Montriond, , Abbaye D'Aulps, Col Du Corbier, Roc D'Enfer, PDS Ski area, Morzine and Les Gets villages, and Les Linderets.
There are many places to ski within close proximity to Chalet Brochaux. Not only is there the beautifully peaceful satellite resort of Roc D'Enfer at St Jean D'Aulps, but most notably the huge arena of the Portes Du Soleil, the largest pisted ski area in Europe!
Portes Du Soleil Ski Area
The Portes Du Soleil ski area is vast with 650km of pistes across 12 resorts over France and Switzerland. Morzine and Les Gets are tree-lined beginner havens. Avoriaz and Crozets have some of the best snowparks in the Alps, Europe's first Burton Stash and a halfpipe. Powder hounds will love the Hauts Forts and the easily reached powder fields in Lindarets and Chatel. The area is so huge, of course there is something for everyone.
For our guests, the best points of access for the PDS is either of the Morzine lifts which are 12 kilometers from the Chalet, or our favorite, the Ardent lift on the outskirts of Montriond.
The Ardent bubble offers free parking, and is usually much quieter than Morzine. This uplifts skiers to the Linderets bowl, where skiers and boarders can choose the wonderful runs in this area, including 'The Stash', or further uplift towards Avoriaz, or over into Chatel, or even straight into Switzerland. It really is the most central and best access point in the whole domain, and is not even 15 kilometers drive from the chalet.
Another access point to the Portes Du Soleil is Les Gets, which also has the quiet Mont Chery side, popular with local skiers on busy days. From Les Gets you also have great access to the Nyon and Ranfolly areas
Roc D'Enfer Ski Area
For a quiet days skiing, you can also try St Jean D'Aulps, which is a small ski area around the Roc D'Enfer. St Jean D'Aulps is 4 kilometers from our Chalet, and the lifts are another 2.5kms beyond the village (total distance from Chalet to lifts 6.5kms).
Due to its quieter nature, Roc D'Enfer is perfect for families and beginners, and also for the powder hounds who cant find fresh lines in the larger PDS area.
Bus Or Drive To The Lifts
We are fortunate to have the winter bus stop only 200m from Chalet Brochaux. There are plenty of buses to suit all schedules into Morzine, which is a scheduled journey on the bus of 25 minutes. Buses returning in the afternoon are almost every 30 minutes, and run until after 7pm.
