Wake to a proper cooked breakfast, and a day of adventure in Les Portes du Soleil. The hotel’s minibus takes you to the lifts, for gentle tree-lined pistes shared with Les Gets, and innumerable forays beyond.
The enchanting Mas de la Coutettaz, the oldest building in Morzine, lies at the quiet end of town, a short walk from shops, cafes and après ski bars. James and his team go above and beyond to make each homecoming special, from afternoon tea and cakes by the crackling fire, to dinner at the huge table. Look forward to a four-course ‘menu fixe’ every evening with wine, illuminated by candelabras. Chocolates and coffees follow… and Dorrien joins in whenever he can.
Bedrooms, big, quirky and characterful, lie at the top of the stone stair; go for a mountain view. Beds are super comfortable, soaps are from L’Occitane, and staff have oodles of charm.
