Chalet Le Coeur de Lion is unlike many of the modern, purpose built holiday homes in the area - it was constructed over 100 years ago and was one of first buildings in Montriond. The chalet is accessed through its own entrance way off a private garden area in Montriond, a beautiful little village on the outskirts of Morzine.
The chalet is location just a 50 metre walk from the nearest ski shuttle bus stop.
Our chalet has a large open plan family lounge, dining room and kitchen area on the first floor as well as a WC and laundry facilities. In total the chalet stretches over 200 m2. There is a large sunny terrace overlooking the stunning Morzine valley towards Nyon in one direction and Mont Chery in the other. The terrace also has dining furniture and a BBQ for those sunny winter afternoons. The large living room has a log burning fire to keep you warm as you watch the snow fall outside. On the second floor is a large double en-suite bedroom with a whirlpool bath and separate shower. There is another large double or twin bedroom and then a separate twin bedroom. A family bathroom built from a traditional Mazot is also on the second floor and includes a shower. Between the three bedrooms the chalet sleeps 6 people but there is also a sleeping area in an annex off the second floor lobby area and two sofa beds in the lounge.
The chalet includes cosy central heating throughout and in the kitchen there is a washing machine, tumble dryer and a dishwasher. There is a television in the lounge with UK Freeview satellite channels as well as a DVD player with a collection of family movies. There is also a Wii computer console with a selection of popular games too.

Parking is available just next to the chalet in an undercover car port.
Alternatively there is an underground car park just opposite. Access to the chalet is through a private garden and there is a private ski and boot storage area.
Our self catered holidays commence on a Saturday and usually last for 7 nights. If you'd like to enquire about a short break holiday in Chalet Le Coeur de Lion please do get in touch. We also offer self catered summer holidays too.
The Rhone/French Alps region
The Rhone Alps run across the boarder of France and Switzerland and stretch between the flat fields alongside Lake Geneva up to some of the highest mountains in Europe. Mont Blanc can be viewed from several peaks. The Portes du Soleil is the largest connected ski area in Europe, with 650km of piste and off-piste runs, 288 ski slopes, 3 freestyle parks and 209 ski lifts.
The enormous Portes du Soleil also covers 12 ski resorts across France and Switzerland with Morzine at the very heart of the ski network. The Portes du Soleil lift pass offers the best value for money in terms of its price and the area it covers when compared to all the other large ski areas in Europe.
Morzine and Montriond are great holiday locations during both the winter and summer months. The winter season starts in mid-December and the area usually benefits from an excellent snow record each winter. The resort is very family friendly and there are often lots of activities and events for children organised by the local tourist office.
Morzine also has a growing apres ski seen with live bands and DJ's on the terraces of the many bars, restaurants and cafes in the late afternoon and early evening. During the summer months Morzine hosts many festivals including the Tour de France and the Harley Davidson festival.

"Zeer sfeervol chalet met geweldig uitzicht"
Met ons gezin genoten we van een fantastische skivacantie in Coeur de Lion, een uitermate sfeervol chalet gelegen in Montriond. Dat ligt op 75 min van Geneve tegen Morzine aan in het reusachtige skigebied Portes du Soleil. We werden gastvrij ontvangen door Amie en Michael, die het Chalet runnen en alles geregeld hadden incl. skipassen etc. Het skimateriaal was te huur op 2 min. loopafstand, en zo dichtbij was ook de bakker en de skibus, ideaal.dus. Toen we het chalet binnenkwamen konden we onze ogen niet geloven, zo ruim en fraai ingericht was de living met houtkachel, met boven 3 ruime skaapkamers, de naster met jacuzzi, lekker ontspannend na een dag skieen. Dit chalet voelde zo goed dat we direct voor volgende Kerst en ook in de zomer 2 weken hebben geboekt.

"Traditional, relaxing + very comfortable stay"
Chalet Le Coeur de Lion is the most beautiful chalet I have ever stayed in...and I have stayed in plenty. The chalet has been restored to its former glory, bell, pots and pans hang from the roof, the bedrooms are quiet, comfortable and very clean. The chalet boasts so much character it is charming. The views are great from the balcony. This chalet is not for someone that wants lots of bars and clubs on their doorstep. It is suited to family or a group of friends that do not mind a bus trip or a cab to Morrzine to go out. My family went to the next door local bar most nights which was perfect for some beers in the evening... but the chalet is so comfortable you don't really want to leave it! We took the self catering option that worked perfectly for us. The hosts who live below are really helpful and welcoming. My family will def be back.

Hi Amy - thank you so much for your lovely review. You and your group were our first guests in Chalet Le Couer de Lion last winter and it was fantastic to see your reactions when you all arrived! Thank you for the very amusing Burns Night entertainment and games, it was great to get to know the group. Fingers crossed we'll see some of you again this winter, I think Chris and Georgie are interested in coming to stay again. Thanks once again, have a lovely summer! Amie & Michael
