Chalet Booboo is a wonderful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom chalet located in a tranquil setting within a small residence of chalets. Spanning 72m2 over two levels, the chalet has been thoughtfully laid out to provide a spacious, yet incredibly cosy space.  It boasts authentic alpine charm with plenty of modern conveniences and luxurious extras such as the lovely log burner providing a focal point in the living area. 

The chalet benefits from the excellent facilities offered by the residence, including a sauna, gym and communal heated indoor swimming pool (subject to closure during October to mid-December). An elevated position offers stunning panoramic views from a large 12m2 balcony, with an additional terrace to the rear of the chalet.

The chalet is located just 200m from a ski bus stop, ensuring quick and easy access to the excellent local slopes of Morillon, and the vast Grand Massif network. A short walk of around 12 minutes take you the historic village centre of Morillon where you will find a selection of restaurants, bars, cafes, boulangerie, a small supermarket and popular weekly market.  A further 3 minute walk will take you to a stunning mountain lake, Lac Bleu with surrounding activities such as cross country skiing and snow shoeing in winter.  During other times of the year enjoy activities such as the pump track, horse riding, an adventure park, tennis courts, mini golf, inflatable kids area, and of course, swimming in the lake.

A closed garage provides plenty of storage for bikes, skis and other equippment, and there is private parking available directly outside the chalet for 2 cars. 

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.

Chalet Booboo is entered via an upper level entrance, with good storage offered by a built in cupboard and hanging space. Venture a little further into and the chalet and you reach the impressive open plan living, dining and kitchen area with a vaulted ceiling and velux windows.  The luxurious alpine cabin style appeal, is perfectly combined with all the modern conveniences and furnishings you need, producing a wonderful space to enjoy.  The crackle of an eye catching stone clad log burner takes centre stage in the room and provides warmth on those cold snowy evenings.

The fully equipped kitchen has been cleverly designed to maximise storage and work space, and features a full size electric fan oven, separate microwave, 4 ring hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and raclette and fondue sets. A second fridge/freezer can be found in the garage. Delicious home cooked meals can be enjoyed in the dining area where, below an attractive suspended light, guests will find a large dining table comfortably seating up to 8 people. In the living area, two deep comfortable sofas sit before a lovely rustic TV unit, with entertainment provided by a large LCD Smart TV and satellite receiver while a selection of family games is also provided.  One of the sofas can be converted into a double sofa bed for larger groups.

The chalet benefits from Wi-Fi coverage throughout, with a high-speed connection also available in the residents-only communal areas, just a short stroll away. 

One of the great benefits of the property is its location at the upper corner of the cluster of chalets.  This not only ensures lovely views and no passing traffic, but also provides a quiet corner of the residence to relax, yet still benefiting from the luxurious treats the complex has to offer.

Shared coin-operated laundry facilities are available at the residence reception about 100m from the chalet.

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

The chalet benefits from a fantastic 12m2 covered balcony which offers wonderful panoramic views over the valley from the forested mountain side above Verchaix to the rugged beauty of Le Criou above Samoens, and the snow capped monster of Le Buet. Grab a coffee and watch on as the sun rises up over the ridge line to signal the start of another exciting day. A table and chairs are provided on the balcony. 

The chalet's excellent position at the end of the small residence, not only ensures no passing traffic, but provides another area to kick back and relax in a south facing position at a quiet corner of the chalet exterior on the decking.

Private parking for 2 cars is available directly outside the chalet.

A private and secure garage is fitted with ski boot drier, racks for skis and snowboards, ample room for bikes, another storage rack for accessories, a sofa to sit on when putting on ski boots, and a large fridge freezer. Please note, the garage is for equipment storage only, it isn't suitable for cars, but you are able to charge your electric car outside the garage using your own EV charging cable and standard electrical socket.

Chalet Booboo is located in a popular holiday village on the edge of Morillon village, boasting a tranquil and particularly scenic elevated position within the small development itself. In the village centre of Morillon, a short walk of around 12 minutes, you will find a small selection of bars, restaurants, cafes, a boulangerie, small supermarket, gift shop, and a great weekly market.

In winter, a ski bus stop is available just 200m from the chalet, offering a regular service to the Morillon and Samoens telecabines, both offer an ideal starting point for a fun day of skiing in the Grand Massif.

In the spring, summer and autumn guests will find a great network of walking and biking trails close to the chalet, with some leading straight from the chalet! A short walk of around 1.5km, following the river Giffre, will take you to the wonderful alpine lake of Lac Bleu where, alongside swimming in the life guarded lake with beach, a huge range of activities are available including an adventure park, horse riding, tennis, beach volleyball, mini golf, and an inflatables park. Or simply enjoy a relaxing drink or meal in the excellent lakeside restaurant La Covagne, and take in the magnificent views!

Property reviews

"We've had an absolutely fantastic week in this lovely chalet. The Cirque du Fer a Cheval and Mines d'Or walks were fantastic, La Puzze restaurant is very good and Samoens is also amazing. The chalet is in such a great location!"

Graham and friends, Chalet Booboo, September 2023

“We had a lovely stay at Chalet Booboo - it is in a lovely area with plenty to do nearby or a short drive away. The chalet itself was very well kitted out with all the essentials and more. We would recommend to others.” 

Ruth, Chalet Booboo, August 2023

"Excellent property in very convenient location on outskirts of Morillon. Ideal for four adults, self-catering but with access to bars and restaurants in Morillon and Samoens. Well appointed and very comfortable accommodation."

Graham, Chalet Booboo, March 2023

"Thank you Alps Accommodation, under the difficult circumstances with the snow situation, we felt your communication and guidance was on point. The Chalet was as expected, and we had a wonderful week. It had everything we needed and was warm and comfortable. The welcome pack was a lovely touch too."

Whitehead, Chalet Booboo, January 2023

"Beautiful location with a gorgeous view from the balcony. The chalet was really clean and the beds were super comfortable."

Julie and Family, Chalet Booboo, August 2022

"Lovely property in good location on the edge of Morillon. The chalet was well stocked with comfortable beds, and a nice balcony with mountain views. Morillon is a pretty village where we were able to swim in the river and in the village lake, as we visited in August when temp were over 30’s. Plenty of places to visit and hiking/walking nearby. The Sixt Cirque Du Fer a Cheval was stunning. Sameons, where our son went paragliding, not forgetting taking the cable cars and gondola’s for exploring mountain hiking and fantastic views over Mont Blanc and the surrounding French Alps. We also visited Annecy, a very pretty mountain/lake town with its unique canals. Good location for exploring the French Alps."

Andrew and Family, Chalet Booboo, August 2022

"Accommodation was up to our expectations and consistent with the description. The chalet is at the end of a dead end street so quiet, pleasant, well equipped, and close to the ski bus. We highly recommend this chalet."

Sophie, Chalet Booboo, February 2022

"A set of chalets in a quiet area and with a beautiful view. The manager of the chalet is friendly and welcoming. A lovely area with a lot of things to do."

Foissier family, Chalet Booboo, August 2021

"This chalet is perfect for a stay with family or friends. Everything is provided for your comfort in this splendid setting. The welcome is remarkable!"

Mimoun, Chalet Booboo, February 2021

"Really lovely chalet with a spectacular view on the grand massif. There was a very nice welcome package, the chalet was spacious (in a smart way) with comfy beds and the bedrooms are downstairs which is really convenient on hot summer days as they stay pleasantly cool. The residence comes with a small pool and the area is great for hiking and outdoor activities. The owners have highlighted a few of their favorite walks. Thank you."

Westerman family, Chalet Booboo, July 2020

"Beautiful, well-equipped chalet."

Janin Family, Chalet Booboo, February 2019

"We LOVE the Grand Massif ski area and your services at Alps Accommodations.  Mike and Ash from Flat Peak were terrific and always ready to share local info.  Rol Sports were also great - very friendly and super service. Thanks so much for a truly magical ski holiday that leaves us with lasting beautiful memories.  Merci beaucoup."

Greatrix family, Chalet Booboo, February 2018

"We've had a great week, the chalet is very well fitted out and we've particularly appreciated the satellite TV being tennis and Tour de France fans! Thanks."

Naylor party, Chalet Booboo, July 2017

"Très bonne location, Booboo est un petit chalet confortable et très pratique, parfait pour une famille."

Famille Jorge, Chalet Booboo, Février 2017

"A fantastic two weeks spent in the French Alps watching the Tour De France 2016. The chalet has superb views of the surrounding mountains from the balcony and the position of the property is ideal within the complex as it's on the end of the top row and thus very peaceful. The property is very well equipped with a brand new kitchen which has good quality appliances and suitably well equipped with everything you could possibly need to cater for a big family. On site swimming pool very clean and reception staff lovely."

Loveday, Chalet Booboo, July 2016

"Chalet delightful: spacious public area – kitchen / dining / living with balcony big enough to use for relaxing and even eating with nice views and sunlight (excellent heating and insulation throughout the chalet for when you’d rather be inside). Chalet has obviously been refurbished very recently and was in immaculate condition. Kitchen is equipped to a very high standard (much better range and quality of appliances and kit than normal in a rented place including satellite tv). Good storage for skis and boards and a residents’ swimming pool and sauna a couple of minutes walk away. Parking directly outside the chalet door."

Gordon, Chalet Booboo, March 2016

About the owner

We are a Scottish family passionate about hill walking, skiing, and cycling. We came across the Giffre Valley on a walking holiday in autumn 2003 and fell in love with it. We returned every autumn thereafter and bought the chalet in around 2007. Since then we visit every season, every year. The Grand Massif has better skiing, bigger mountains, and better weather than Scotland so what’s not to like?! Suits us perfectly. Our tip would be to visit in the autumn when the weather is beautiful, and it’s quiet! Wanderlust magazine rates the Giffre Valley as one of the best walking destinations in the world. We would second that!
