Morzine is one of the most popular resorts to ski in France. However, due to a fear of the town’s low altitude and the notion that there are no luxury chalets in Morzine, the prices here are incredibly affordable. Firstly, don’t worry about the altitude. Historically Avoriaz, which is Morzine’s easily accessible sister resort at 1,800m, has consistently seen some of the largest snow depths in the Alps. More importantly though the town does offer some beautiful properties that suit all types. This includes authentic alpine lodges, modern boutique chalets fitted with every facility you can think of and finally chalets that offer the basic comfort you require alongside some of the best food to found in the region.
As you can see from the image below there are a lot of chalets but which luxury chalet in Morzine is right for you?
1. TRADITIONAL CHALETS
Chalet le Manoir, built in 1790, was home to the local Notary for two centuries. Intricate mosaic floors, flagstone halls, and large bedrooms with huge French windows take advantage of the property’s idyllic location. Le Manoir offers a traditional, authentic alpine stay whilst offering all the modern facilities needed.
Another option is The Farmhouse – a chalet perfect for families or groups of friends alike. Constructed in 1771 this building is one of Morzine’s oldest chalets – it exudes real alpine charm and character. There is a small and intimate bar in the chalet that stays open until 1 am each evening, with local musicians performing on certain nights each week.
The youngest of our three selected traditional properties, Chalet Ferme du Lac Vert, is a beautiful farmhouse on the outskirts of Morzine. Built in 1842 and renovated in 2010. Guests can expect huge vaulted ceilings with spacious living areas built from local timber and stone. Previous guests have described the chalet food to be as good as ‘Michelin star’ dining.
2. PURE LUXURY CHALETS IN MORZINE
Chalet Joux Plane is an incredible, unique property which sets the bar high for any luxury chalet. Guests enter the chalet by following the 15 metre tunnel from the garage and this is not where the uniqueness of this chalet ends.

One of the most unique being the swimming pool that extends from one side of the chalet, through it, and then out the other side.
Another option is Chalet Doyen which lives up to its name as one of the prominent chalets in Morzine. An outdoor hot tub and sauna, as well as a complimentary shuttle service to the slopes, all add to the experience of pure bliss achieved by staying at one of the smartest chalets in Morzine.
