Apartment la Ranche was newly renovated in 2014. The owners cleverly married contemporary furnishings and appliances with a cosy Alpine feel. It is on the first floor of a family house in Montriond, just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of this very pretty village with a lovely gastro-pub, restaurant and shops. The chalet is on the bus route to the Ardent télécabine, giving very easy access to the full Portes du Soleil ski area. Montriond is on the outskirts of Morzine, which is a 5 minute drive or bus ride away. It is a lovely quiet area on the much sought after sunny south side of the valley.
The bright, spacious apartment is split over 3 levels, making it feel more like a house than an apartment. Throughout Apartment la Ranche you’ll find great views over the village and the surrounding mountains.
The large open plan living area has a well-equipped fully fitted kitchen with everything you’ll need to cook up a storm during your stay. With a spacious open feel, no one will feel alienated from the group whilst cooking. The dining area seats 8 people round a modern gloss black table. The large seating area has two very comfy contemporary sofas and the underfloor heating gives a lovely cosy feel. The TV has some UK channels, a DVD player and selection of DVDs, and bluetooth speaker for music. There are also a lot of games and toys for kids. The wrap around balcony offers stunning views in all directions as you enjoy a sundowner and chat about the day’s exploits on the ski pistes!
