The top floor Penthouse apartment, which is situated in a residence within the car-free centre of Morillon 1100 Les Esserts, is an ideal winter or summer holiday destination.

Winter holidays at The Penthouse are an absolute dream. Guests have direct access to the pistes, as well as bars, restaurants, bakery, small supermarket, and other shops, which are located just downstairs.

In the summer months, hikers and bikers will be pleased to know that the chair lifts, which allow access to the mountain, are directly opposite the residence. Many walking and biking trails can of course be accessed direct from the apartment, without any need to take the lifts.

The main village of Morillon with its many other amenities, and also Lac Bleu leisure park is just a short drive down the mountain from Les Esserts. A car is recommended for summer visits, as the gondola between Morillon Village and Les Esserts isn't normally running in the summer. For further information about all that Morillon has to offer, please see our resort information page.

Large groups or families travelling together, who wish to be accommodated nearby to one another, may also be interested in B11 Jardin Alpin (4-bedroom). These apartments are situated in the adjacent building within the same residence as The Penthouse.

Property reviews

"We had such a great week. The chalet was so well located and worked well with our mix of young and slightly older adults. We all thought it was the best equipped of all the chalets we have stayed in. We had lovely meals at Le Millecimes and L’Igloo on the slopes. Please would you pass on our thanks to Jazz - what a charming chap. He welcomed us when we arrived early at 12.30 pm and had the chalet ready by 3 - perfect. He also responded quickly to a text that I sent. Alps accommodations as a ski company are also a pleasure to deal with so that also adds to the overall good holiday experience"

Sally, The Penthouse, January 2024

"A magnificent week. The Penthouse is fantastic. The location, the shared areas and all the rooms with the sanitary facilities. And of course, the ski area. A perfect stay for having great moments with family and friends. Thanks for letting us be there!"

"We had a great week at Morillon. Your apartment is very well located and offers a high-end service. We hiked around the area with beautiful weather and surroundings. We appreciated the proximity to the bakery. The children took advantage of the nearby play area, but also the Wii !! An address to keep maybe for the winter."

Marcault Family, The Penthouse, August 2020

Booking with Alps Accommodation was very straightforward and Jenny (the owner) was always superb, answering questions very quickly."

Griffin party, The Penthouse, December 2016

"Our group had a fabulous time, the apartment worked so well for us on so many levels. The way it has been furnished and everything made available to guests is a five star service in our eyes. We must compliment the property manager as well, I rang him far too many times but his information and recommendations were just so good that we utilised the resource. Both the owner and property manager have ensured we have had one of the best holidays away. It really has been a pleasure and so much fun. We really hope to return, possibly next year and if not we will be joining you for some skiing in 2018. Many thanks again for allowing us the use of your splendid property and chalet manager."

Aspin family, The Penthouse, August 2016

"This was the most amazing place, views and light perfect, very comfortable for 14 people, well equipped, peaceful, practical and superb position, skiing straight to the door! We'll definitely be returning for our next celebration! Thank you Le Penthouse Morillon 1100."

The Trimming Party, The Penthouse, March 2016

"We loved the apartment throughout. What a fantastic location with wonderful views. The slopes, ski school, hire shop, pub, patisserie and supermarket only being a stones throw away made life so easy for us with small children. The apartment itself was very clean, and far better equipped than any we've had before. The kitchen facilities and equipment were perfect for self-catering for a large group, and the entertainment equipment just wonderful. eg. Wii with games, DVDs, boardgames and toys. The Molton Brown toiletries were a nice touch too."

Leister, The Penthouse, January 2014

"Beautiful apartment, good aspect-location. Well equipped, especially kitchen. Logs welcome and other facilities good (e.g. welcome pack). We had a great holiday, many thanks."

Hope, The Penthouse, December 2011

"Just a quick note to say thanks for looking after us in the lead up to and during our stay. We had a fantastic time, the apartment couldn’t have been better. We’ve had top drawer service from you guys so be assured of our repeat business...see you next year!!"
