vicky williamson purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why vicky williamson chose Saint-Jean-d'Aulps
We chose this lovely chalet having searched around the Morzine area , because we liked the delightful hamlet of Bas Thex. Very importantly for Morzine we are on the sunny side of the valley, as we discovered that the other side is in shade quite a lot of the day. We have wonderful views from the balconies and we are very close to St Jean which is a 10 minute walk, Morzine is a 10 minutes in a car. The rooms are spacious and the chalet has a lot of natural light . it is a traditional design and is well located for ski-ing, mountain biking, walking,rafting and many other activities.
What makes this Chalet unique
The chalet is in a very pretty quiet hamlet with lovely views from the south facing balconies. It is a bonus in the Morzine valley to be on the sunny side ! We are ideally located for exploring the various ski areas, you do need a car to get to the station but the advantage is that one can get to several places easily and vary the skiing .Les Gets, Avoriaz, Morzine, are all accessible as is the whole of the Portes du Soleil region. In the Spring and Summer there are wonderful walks in the area and we are within easy reach of many of the mountain bike trails and mountain treks.

A lovely stay in a lovely chalet
A very pretty chalet in a rustic French village. Nice spacious living area with open fire and well kitted out kitchen. All bedrooms are stylishly decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable!
Thank you for your comments. Were pleased that you liked the chalet and had a good holiday. We too like cooking so ensure that there is everything you need to cater for a family and as the kitchen is part of the living area no-one need feel left out busy in the kitchen.
Do come again.
Wonderful chalet perfectly located
We had a fabulous ski holiday (with our extended family of all sizes and ages coming and going) in this lovely place. We especially liked; the amazingly comfortable beds, the classic wooden ski chalet feel, the real log fire, the short drive from Geneva airport, being able to easily access (by car & free bus) different parts of the massive Portes du Soleil ski area depending on weather and whim, the wonderful cuisine in the many mountain restaurants, the short walk to St Jean d'Aulps- a friendly village with bars and a Carrefour Express. We would definitely recommend it.
Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you all enjoyed your holiday and were comfortable in the chalet. We like to think that guests can relax and treat the chalet as their own home so we make sure that we have lots of creature comforts !I We feel it is important that it is pleasure to be in the chalet as well as on the slopes and after a busy day skiing sometimes one just needs to relax by the fire.
We would love to welcome you again.
This chalet combines modern conveniences and comfort with traditional charm and cosiness. The bedrooms are all of good size and we found the beds very comfortable. In addition, the kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed for a two week stay. Crucially, there was enough hot water for 5 of us to have hot showers/baths at the end of a days' skiing.
A car is recommended, but the chalet is close to the main road and there's a good-sized supermarket a short drive away.
The hamlet is quiet and the ideal place to get a good night's sleep after a long day on the slopes.
We didn't encounter any problems when making our booking or during our stay.
Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed our chalet and found it a comfortable and well equipped home. It is lovely that you are returning next year and you will see that we continue to make improvements and add a few little luxuries each time we go. Although we are a little out of the action we find like you that the peace and quiet of our little hamlet means that we do get a good nights sleep and the slopes , restaurants and shopping are all very accessible.
Spacious and cosy
This was a fabulous chalet, very attractively presented, fresh and clean, well equipped and maintained. The bedrooms were all a very good size and the beds were comfortable. The open plan kitchen dining and seating area meant that all members of the party could join in whether preparing the meal or sipping drinks by the fire.
The short drive to the slopes meant that we explored different options for skiing areas and had no trouble parking or returning to the car at the end of the day. The local supermarket was very well stocked and nearby.
We would recommend this chalet, particularly for a group of adults who are looking for comfort at the end of the day's skiing or want alternatives for non skiing such as mountain hiking of biking.
Thank you for your review.I am delighted that you had a good holiday and enjoyed the chalet and the lovely location.. We aim to make it home from home with all the equipment you need for a relaxing holiday. Comfortable beds are a priority too !
I do hope that you may like to visit again.
Real home from home & very comfy
Everything from the initial booking with Vicky to the arrival went smoothly . the house is really comfortable and very well equipped. it was clean and tidy with everything to make your stay a real home from home feel.
Bas Thex is a little way out of the main action , which is what we wanted yet worth mentioning if renting this chalet you may need to hire a car.
Thanks Vicky for all the advise and help along the way ,
Fantastic Comfortable Chalet
This property is situated in the small hamlet a few minutes from the charming village of St Jean d'Aulp and about 10 minutes’ drive from Morzine.
The property is beautifully laid out in a very traditional chalet style with a wonderful log fire in the lounge area and large well equipped and modern kitchen. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable and all have wonderful balcony views of the mountains across the valley.
Skiing is available very nearby in the charming area accessible from the St Jean d'Aulp or a short drive will take you to the well know resorts of Morzine and the other resorts of the Haute Savoy and the Portes de Soleil.
All in all a wonderful relaxing and excellent place to stay in luxurious chalet in a tranquil setting but within easy reach of major skiing resorts.
