About this listing
A 2 bedroom recently renovated apartment situated in a peaceful hamlet close to Morillon village, 500m from the Morillon cable car which operates in summer and winter. The apartment is fully equipped with free wifi internet access.
Great access to ski slopes. 500m to bottom lift station. 2 ski buses run right pass the door. Also lift opens in summer for excellent Mountain biking and hiking in the area. The apartment is newly renovated but is inside a traditional Savoyard farmhouse so there's a great combination of modernity and character. It is very comfortable for 4 people (2 bedrooms, 1 with bunks and 1 with a double bed) but 6 can be comfortably accommodated with a sofa bed in the living area.
Full Kitchen, fridge freezer, proper size cooker with oven, microwave, dishwasher and even a washing machine. Safe, private off street parking right by the door of the apartment.
Interaction with guests
We live in same building, access round the other side, so we're close by yet separate. Guests can easily pop by to ask questions but they can opt to only see us on arrival and departure if they prefer.
A traditional, peaceful hamlet with beautiful mountain views in 5 minute walking distance of the cable car, shops and amenities of Morillon village centre. These include: bars, restaurants, supermarket, cash machine, tourist office, pharmacy, butchers, bread shop, gift shops and sports equipment rental shops.
In winter ski season 2 free ski buses are routed right past the house and the bus stop is at end of our garden. The buses take you around the local area but a car is needed to go further a field. In summer there are no buses but it's a very short distance to walk or bike to all local shops and amenities. There is private off street parking outside the apartment (2 spaces).

I am now an International Mountain Leader, and was for many years an Adventure travel guide leading trekking, Kayak/ rafting, easy climbing peaks and Mountain biking holidays in Himalayas and all over world - for major UK holiday tour operators. But moved to the Alps, and chose this valley to set up my own Mountain bike company - as this is some of best single track and natural high level riding in the world on our doorstep and close by in Swiss alps. Also I occasionally guide on local hiking as well, and in winter guide snow shoeing in our valley and building work. When any spare time not with family and work, like to ski tour or rock climbing, as area is great for both too!! Never enough time in the week for all! We been very happy here for 11years now with small family, kids are 2 and 5yrs old, with my partner Mary, of 13years. Great place to live and visit for holidays, please get in touch for advice and any more info. we happy to help your stay be comfortable and relaxing or very adventurous!
