Chalet Bleu Morillon The garden features a bubbly hot tub and stunning alpine views

Chalet Bleu in Morillon is a charming 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom chalet, sleeping 7/9 guests.  Set in 800m2 of private flat gardens, guests can enjoy their very own hot tub with stunning views from every side of the chalet.  Across the 2-floors, the chalet provides approximately 151m2 (20m2 below 1.8m2 high) of space and comfort. Traditional features such as the log burner with red brick surrounds and the cast iron range cooker combine perfectly with the comfortable sofas, underfloor heating & stylish, newly renovated bathrooms.  The unique interior charm provides an original and cheerful choice for your year-round holiday. 

The glorious open-plan living and dining room with wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors is a triumph of design; natural surrounds becoming an extension of the chalet’s interior. The large, fully-equipped kitchen is also unique in its design and character, and guests will feel right at home in the bright and spacious bedrooms, each with private bathroom facilities.

Chalet Bleu is superbly located a mere 2-minute drive or easy 10 minute walk from the centre of Morillon. And with the free and regular ski bus service to both Morillon and Samoëns stopping just at the bottom of the lane 150m away, it is your ideal winter or summer holiday home away from home.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Saturday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.

Description

description

A bright blue chalet with catslide roof set in the French countryside. Chalet Bleu is indeed unique, something you notice the moment you arrive via a laneway accessed from the road into Morillon.

Step inside to a perfect mix of cottage charm and modern comfort. To your right a hallway leads to the first of three spacious and well-appointed bedrooms. Here, you will also find the first of three bathrooms. A large closet housing the separate washer and dryer is also in the hall. In addition it is fitted with ski boot rack and storage shelves, custom-made by the owner. Ahead of you the glorious open-plan living, and dining room is a major highlight. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass, this lovely space affords stunning views down the valley to the Pic de Marcelly, and in the warmer months can be opened to provide access to the chalet’s garden.

In the winter, relax around the log burner in either of the two large, comfortable sofas or fabulous banana fibre rocking chairs. One of the sofas is a pull-out double sofa-bed and can be used to provide flexible sleeping options for larger groups. A TV, DVD player and games console are provided for your entertainment, along with a selection of DVDs and games, including dance mat and karaoke mics!  There is also a large selection of books, board games and puzzles, plus Wi-Fi internet throughout.

The kitchen, also on the ground floor, is a lovely mix of old and new. The traditional cast iron, wood burning stove and hotplate combines with charming wooden cabinets, stylish wall tiles and a sleek granite work surface, that doubles as a breakfast bar. The kitchen comes equipped with additional electric oven and 4-burner gas hob, full-size fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, food processor, and all the bakeware and crockery/serving dishes and glassware you could possibly need. Coffee lovers are spoilt for choice too, with Nespresso machine, stovetop Italian cafetiere and Krups coffee maker all at your disposal. And if you’d like to try your hand at some traditional Savoyard fare of an evening, there is also a raclette machine and two fondue sets.

Dine with a view inside or step out onto your south-facing deck area, equipped with outdoor dining table and chairs. This is also where you will find your hot tub! An additional picnic bench and BBQ on the northern side of the chalet provide another space to dine al fresco. Or simply enjoy the 800m2 of gardens, the glorious outlook providing sunshine all-day long.

Back inside the chalet, walk up the wide wooden staircase to the second level where you will find your two remaining bedrooms. The king room has its own ensuite bathroom, while the triple room benefits from a large, private bathroom in the hall. There is also an additional balcony on this level, affording the same beautiful views to the west.

Chalet Bleu is a lovely choice for your year-round holidays to the Alps. Much loved by its owners, this charming accommodation offers you a truly warm, home-stay feel.

Pets are not accepted in this property.  Please contact us for advice on pet friendly accommodation.

Surrounded by approximately 800m2 of private gardens, with dense forest behind and views across open fields toward the Pic de Marcelly in front, Chalet Bleu’s outdoor space is divine. The large, hedged garden and decking on three sides of the house provide plenty of places to relax and enjoy the sunshine all day long.

Location

location

Chalet Bleu sits at the end of a lane, accessible from the main road into Morillon. With only one neighbour to the south, the chalet is otherwise completely surrounded by country pastures, yet it’s conveniently located a comfortable 10 minute walk or mere 2-minute drive from the centre of Morillon. A free and regular ski bus, which services both Morillon and Samoëns’ gondolas, departs from the end of the drive, providing you quick and easy access to the vast Grand Massif ski domain. The Samoëns gondola is of course open in the summer months too for hikers and mountain bikers.

In the warmer months, simply walk out your front door, cross the field and join the pleasant riverside hiking trails. Equally enjoyable on a mountain bike, the trails will lead you to either the private, peaceful Crystal Lake, or the very popular Lac Bleu. Here, you will find a designated swimming area, adventure park, obstacle course, horse riding, tennis courts, kids inflatable park, and beach volleyball. There is also the lovely lakeside La Covagne restaurant, which is open in winter too!

There are several other bars & restaurants, sports shops, a pharmacy, tabac, small supermarket, bakery & great weekly market to be enjoyed in Morillon. Or continue to Samoëns, approximately a 5-7-minute drive away.

About the owners

After coming to Morillon skiing with their 3 children for several years, Roy and Bev decided to find their own chalet so they could spend more time in the Giffre Valley. Since moving into the Chalet Bleu 6 years ago they have discovered the mountains and valley are as beautiful in the summer as during the ski season. The area is great for hiking, white water rafting and cycling or just sitting with a glass of bubbly taking in the mountain view from the hot tub. We particularly enjoy curling up on the sofas feeling part of the Christmas card scenery, looking out on to the 2000m Pic de Marcelly with its constantly changing colours and features.
