Description

We have been with Holiday Lettings for many years . I recommend with any holiday rental that, for your peace of mind that you check the status of the owner directly with Holiday Lettings.

The chalet has been designed specifically for the sports enthusiast, when returning from an active day in the mountains, enter the chalet straight into the spacious boot room. Hang your coat in the drying cupboard and place your boots on the boot warmer. A shower to freshen up, with 600 litres of available hot water – everyone can shower simultaneously. Maybe a sauna to sooth those aching bones or grab a glass of wine and from the hot tub watch the sun set behind the mountains. Fully relaxed, now enjoy a typical Savoyarde dinner served at the 12 seater oak dining table and share the adventures of the day. Replete, perhaps time for a 'digestif' in front of the roaring log fire before sleep beckons with the promise of tomorrow.

It is ideally located in a tranquil village of Le Biot, just 10 minutes drive from the services and amenities of the lively market town of Morzine, one of the key centres of the vast Porte du Soleil ski area, one of the largest inter-connected ski areas in the world. The smaller ski areas of St Jean d'Aulps and Drouzin, ideal for beginners, are even closer

Flexible accommodation - the chalet can be hired self catered :

as a whole, 370m squared, sleeping up to 24 with 2 spacious lounges and 2 luxury kitchens. This allows large parties the space to spread out with children watching the latest movie in one lounge with the adults having a quiet drink in the other.

or as two separate self contained units each sleeping 12. Each unit is divided by a central staircase with lockable doors. Each unit has its own separate access and front door and terrace. Each floor is separated by sound proofed concrete.

Geneva airport is under 1 hour away with excellent connecting flights from UK airports.

Location description from owner

The Rhône-Alpes region

Chalet Grand Bleu offer self catering accomadtion in the heart of the largest ski area in the world providing easy access to both the French and Swiss ski resorts of the Porte Du Soleil. Given the majestic mountains, tumbling rivers and beautiful woodland it is easy to appreciate why the whole area is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. Whilst Le Biot is a tranquil village, served by with a , bakery and tabac.Within 10 minutes there are numerous charming Savoyard towns offering a very wide selection of activities and amenities. Morzine and Les Gets are perhaps the most widely known towns and are very unlike the many aesthetically challenged, purpose built French ski resorts. The area has is very much made up of traditional alpine market towns which have retained their historical charm and are now well served with restaurants, bars and shopping facilities.

Morzine

Skiing
The chalet is ideally placed to provide swift access to a number of ski stations, which then link to the Portes du Soleil network.
To get the most out of this area for those flying from the UK, we would recommend hiring a car at the airport. Ski buses do operate throughout the area however, especially with children and long skis, we have never entertained them. Your own transport will allow you to explore the area and provide you with the freedom to choose the ski station and snow conditions that best suit your needs.
Any one resort will provide extensive skiing however the linked Portes du Soleil network provides limitless options. Circular routes for example enable you to depart in France, lunch in Switzerland and return to your start point without every having to ski the same run twice!
Extensive investment in chairlifts and snow cannons have ensured that even during the busiest periods queues are minimal and the lowest slopes always in the best possible condition.

Walking and hiking:
Quite a number of well-placed chairlifts still operate out of the ski season to enable walkers to use their energy traversing the slopes rather than walking uphill! Level walking around the lakes and rivers is less arduous and just as breath taking with staggering gorges and waterfalls punctuating your journey. Themed accompanied walks ie local history, fauna and flora, are widely available booked through the village tourist offices.

Mountain biking and cycling:
Mountain bikers have all the variety and challenge they could wish for. There are 380kms of marked and graded trails through unsurpassed scenery and 24 lifts available to take the grind out of the climb. In September 2004 Morzine hosts the world mountain bike championships.

Road racing:
another French passion. The villages of the Portes de Soleil are regular stages for the Tour de France (July) as well as the Tour De Swisse (June) and Criterium de Daupine Libere (June). For the real enthusiasts there is the Col de Toux Plane (1687m) 10.5kms with an average gradient of 8.6% and the Col de Ramay (1619m) 14.3km with an average gradient of 6.9%

Golf
The region has seven 18-hole golf courses, three 9-hole courses and a crazy golf course five minutes from the chalet in St Jean d'Aulps. Each course provides a variety of choices for the beginner to the pro golfer, with each tee played amidst some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe. For the keen golfer there is a golfing pass available, which allows you five different green fees and to select from eleven courses in the area.

Parapenting:
Launching yourself off a mountain to ride the thermals is not everyone's idea of fun but can be
experienced safely, in tandem with one of the many accredited French instructors.

White water rafting and hydro-speeding:
With full padded wet suit, hurtling down one of the crystal clear mountain rivers with sheer cliffs and blue sky above was an unexpected highlight for us.

Quad biking:
There are numerous centres where 'children' of all ages, under supervision can negotiate the wet and muddy tracks. Do take spare clothes you'll need them!

Fishing:
Lake and river fishing is abundant. Many of the lake fish are served as delicacies in the local restaurants.


Ballooning over the Alps:
Need advanced booking.

“Fantastic vacation in the middle of the French Alps”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

We had an absolutely fantastic vacation ! The chalet was incredible. The mountains beautiful. The weather great. The jacuzzi divine. etc. We rented le Chalet Le Grand Blue with a group of friends. We also had some young children in our group. We could not have hoped for a more suitable property. We had such a great time. I hope to come back another year in summer, or perhaps in winter.

“Prachtig chalet op mooie locatie”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2015

In februari 2015 met grote groep vrienden met kinderen hier geweest. Het was heerlijk. Het chalet is van alle gemakken voorzien en biedt genoeg ruimte aan iedereen. Het uitzicht is fantastisch en het chalet is slechts 20 minuten van Morzine.

“Superb! One of the best holidays ever!”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2014

Really happy to review your lovely chalet! We had a fantastic week helped by huge amounts of snow. The ski-ing was fabulous! And the nearby resort was friendly and charming. As for the chalet - we couldn't have wished for better and we will definitely be coming back! It was the first time we had self catered as a group and it was a huge success! We would definitely do it again as there are savings to be made compared to a fully catered package! As well as the luxury touches in the chalet such as the hot tub and sauna, it was generously equipped even with the more mundane items like a slow cooker, pots & pans, blender, pizza cutter, etc..! Even with 22 of us, with a little organisation and planning, this helped make catering a whole lot easier! A car is essential and rental is easy at Geneva airport and by car you can get to the chalet in just an hour! Plus it means you can explore more of the Port du Soleil. Fabulous views and a well appointed chalet! We will most definitely be back!

“Wonderful!”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2014

Very pleased to review your wonderful chalet. Quietly located photographs just don't do justice to the amazing views.The chalet has a very generous specification with for example sauna, hot tub, wrap around terrace, and a very spacious overall feel. All the bedrooms have en suites and there are 2 lounge areas (perfect for parking the children!) massive amounts of hot water, two kitchens with range cookers and 3 fridges.This all combines to make the chalet ideal for larger groups. A car is essential but also an advantage as it allows you to choose your ski station departure point across the Porte Du Soleil avoiding choke points 'in resort'. I would say the chalet Le Grande Bleu is not suited to those who want to roll out of the clubs in Morzine and stumble home. It is however very much suited for those who want high quality accommodation and we are looking forward to returning! Many thanks Penny!

“Wonderful chalet and superb skiing!”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2014

What a beautiful chalet! picture postcard views,spacious ,luxurious and super comfortable exactly as described. You did highlight that the chalet was not in town - which we were a little nervous of initially but actually after our stay all agreed for our party it was an advantage. With easy access to the chalet, with no steep gradients, we never had to use snow chains. Experienced skiers could miss the lower slopes and the bottleneck 'points in resort' and we all enjoyed being able to choose which ski station to start from. Your recommendations for parking, skiing and restaurants where excellent and all levels of skiers had a wonderful time. This is not the chalet for youngsters wanting to stagger back in the early hours from the clubs in Morzine but then the chalet feels and is equipped more like a second home and I'm sure you're aiming the chalet at families and responsible groups which it is ideally designed for. We look forward to staying again
