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 lane 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 four spacious and well-appointed bedrooms. 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 one of three large, comfortable sofas. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Lefevre Family, Chalet Bleu, August 2022

Chalet Bleu is a lovely property with everything you could possibly need. The outdoor space was perfect for our needs as was the hot-tub which was actually cooler than the outdoor temperature which was perfect. The property managers were excellent and all in all we had an awesome two weeks in a beautiful part of the world.

Moody Family, Chalet Bleu, July/August 2022

Superb chalet, comfortable and more. Cosy, warm, bright, the view of the mountains are very pleasant. A region full of activities - pure happiness! The hot tub is the cherry on the cake!

Chalet of high quality, the beds are comfortable and the chalet is well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace! Thank you to the managers of the chalet for their help.

Very pleasant chalet with a magnificent view of the mountains. A few kilometres from the Cirque du Fer à Cheval for beautiful hikes. The hot tub is a real plus for the end of the day. Very good stay with friends.

Beauvisage, Chalet Bleu, February 2021

We spent a very nice week with our family. This chalet is very pleasant, especially when the fires are lit. Very bright and warm. The hot tub is clearly a plus and the beds are comfortable. I would recommend it!

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.
