Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bobsled, well presented and superb facilities within a spacious 2 bed apartment. Well placed for all slopes and restaurants in Morzine. Will be back.
I stayed in apartment Chicane for two weeks in January 2014. It is in a great location for the supermarket and the free wifi is a great extra. The apartment block is very quiet which is always welcome. It is a short walk in to town and to the lifts. Overall I would highly recommend this apartment.
Thank you so much for your wonderful apartment this last week. My family have had a fantastic time. It was perfect. We were able to give the 2 kids (22 months and 20 weeks) their own rooms, whilst also allowing my parents to be slightly apart from us so they got some sleep! The living room was a perfect area for the kids to play and us to relax/watch them. It was just brilliant. To be that close to the lift was also great. We were able to leave the kids with the Nanny, knowing that we could get back very quickly should the kids need us.
Beautiful well equipped apartment: Nice apartment on 3rd floor. Thoughtfully decorated, well equipped with wood burning fireplace, good zize kitchen & bathroom. Private garage, very useful in case of snowfall.
Cannot fault our week-long stay in Bobsled
I’m not really one to leave reviews, but after the stay we had I had to!
We’ve been to Morzine a number of times now for our skiing holiday and have always stayed nearer to the Nyon lift in relatively budget accommodation, so this time we wanted to try our luck with a more modernised property closer to the centre of Morzine and Bobsled was perfect!
This apartment is exactly what it says on the tin, what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get when you arrive at Bobsled. We were over the moon with the high-spec finish and the added extras that made it feel more like home.
We arrived at Bobsled quite late in the evening and although we had a bit of nightmare with our transfer from Geneva Airport, Mountain Xtra organised our arrival perfectly so we were able to get in and unpacked straight away!
The bottle of red wine was a lovely added touch when we arrived and after a long day of travelling it was great to put our feet up and enjoy some classic British TV including Netflix! Upon our arrival, there was a handbook that gave us tons of information for bus routes, ski storage, ski lifts, emergency telephone numbers etc – which we found really useful throughout our stay!
The walk into the centre of Morzine isn’t much at all, a mere 10 minutes to the Tourist Office (bottom of Pleney lift) – or if you are carrying ski equipment, there is a bus stop situated at the end of the road where you can jump on the P & U bus routes that are regular throughout the day! As we wanted to spend some time skiing in Avoriaz, we got the bus to the Super Morzine lift which only took a few minutes!
As we were self-catering, we often walked down to the supermarket to get the necessities, which is only a few minutes walk from the apartment. In hindsight, we wish we had utilised the high-spec kitchen – for those that enjoy cooking in full self-catered style, Bobsled is definitely the place to stay! The kitchen / living space is fully equipped with everything you could need and is really spacious with a comfortable, separate dining area for those that like to host nights of their own!
*p.s. the Nespresso machine was probably one of our favourite added extras! – and it didn’t cost too much to stock up on pods from the supermarket 🙂
Our party consisted of two couples and with our friends only visiting Morzine once previously we wanted to make this trip one to remember!
We may have had to flip a coin for which couple got the bigger bedroom and although myself and my partner settled for the smaller of the two we were still not disappointed!
Mountain Xtra asked how we would like the beds to be prepared in the smaller bedroom (twin zipper beds that can be arranged into a double – super comfortable!) – both double bedrooms were prepared to a high standard when we arrived! It’s worth noting that both bedrooms also come equipped with Smart TV’s!
Back to the living area – the high-tech fireplace was a bonus that we LOVED when coming home after being out in the cold! – We did have to contact Mountain Xtra to figure out how to top it up, but they’re no more than a text/phone call away and are really happy to help! But even if you’re happy without the fire, the apartment is filled with blankets and throws to keep you toasty!
The apartment-long balcony with beanbags and fairy lights was a lovely space to relax, especially early in the morning when you can enjoy a Nespresso coffee overlooking the village of Morzine, – (and if you’re one for taking photos like me, its quite the photo opportunity!)
To get to the actual skiing part – 3 out 4 of us own our own ski equipment, but renting skis for my friend was easy, there are plenty of ski rental shops close to Bobsled, but Mountain Xtra do offer a ski rental service (also in the handbook).
In terms of storing our ski equipment, there is a basement/cave with individual ski rooms that can be accessed from inside and outside of the building – At first, we struggled to identify the ski room allocated to Bobsled, but after a quick text message to Mountain Xtra we were able to get our skis locked away for the night!
If I could be super picky and find a tiny downside to Bobsled, it would be the amount of room you have to store clothing. As a girl I obviously packed enough to last me a year, so I quickly took up all the hanging space in the smaller of the two bedrooms but as my partner had packed for a 3 week long skiing trip, he found it easier to live out of his suitcase – this didn’t affect the quality of our stay in Bobsled though! (and as a reminder to myself – pack less!)
As a self-catering apartment it really is perfect, there is an iron, washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a maiden which we found really useful when coming home after a day on the slopes, as we were able to dry out our ski gear ready for the next day!
I really cannot fault our week-long stay in Bobsled, from the process of booking and securing the property to arriving, staying and leaving – it was brilliant! And even when we left Morzine for a 4 night stay in Zermatt, we couldn’t stop talking about how great it was and how we can’t wait to book for Winter 2019.
*My Boyfriend is now back in Morzine and staying in the budget accommodation I spoke of earlier in the Nyon area – and it’s safe to say he’s gutted that he’s not still in Bobsled*
If you’re after Morzine on a self-catered budget, (especially in late January as we did) book a stay in Bobsled!
I can’t wait to get our next stay booked, we will definitely be back!
Thanks Mountain Xtra!
Chalet Mont Evian
Perfect Mountain Holiday
Our first stay in St. Jean D’Aulps and we WILL be returning. The chalet was perfect, beautifully appointed yet comfortable and modern. There was plenty of space for the three families – everyone had somewhere to chill out after a long day on the slopes and we all scampered onto the deck for evening sun and drinks.
As a keen cook I was thrilled to use such a well thought out kitchen and was impressed at the usefulness of the two fridges and two ovens – perfect for catering for a crowd.
Although set above the village it wasn’t too far to stroll down for an evening meal and a few games of pool in the local bar. We enjoyed being only 10/15 minutes drive from all the big resorts, giving us the choice of ski areas daily. But we mostly enjoyed the serenity and spectacular setting of this truly special home from home. We want to come back in the summer for walking and biking please!
Great apartment with everything you need
Just got back from a 4 night stay in the Chicane apartment.
The apartment is located just next to the supermarket about 5 minutes walk from the very centre of Morzine. We walked to lifts every morning but there is a free bus that stops outside the Supermarket.
The apartment itself slept 4 of us comfortably. There was much more living space than most ‘ski apartments’ and I would say you could stay here comfortably and self cater without getting under each others feet.
We didn’t cook as we eat out but the apartment had everything you needed to cook meals indoors to save money. Good sized fridge, double hob and microwave / oven combo thing.
Free internet was also a massive bonus!
Overall I don’t think you could get a better apartment on a budget.
The location and space of the apartment are what make this chalet special. Close enough to be in the heart of Morzine centre but quietly tucked away, the location is perfect. Very close to Pleney cable car, our young children could walk easily to everywhere. The chalet itself felt very safe and secure and the space is fantastic! A great additional touch was the Christmas tree that was set up for our arrival that helped to make the apartment feel more festive! It was handy having a washing machine and dryer and WiFi all worked without problems. Mountain Xtra are a fantastic company and were very attentive to all our needs. We would definitely use them again and would recommend the chalet to anyone but especially families that want a spacious and well equipped home from home.

“Beautiful apartment with an amazing view”
A beautiful apartment with an amazing view well located in Les Gets. A few minutes walk from a chairlift, or 5 minutes on the bus to the centre of Les Gets. Underground parking and ski lockers available. We would definitely return to both the apartment and Les Gets.
Jo, March 2018Guest
Such a stunning chalet so well decorated and designed. Lorna and Dom have really put their stamp on it and are wonderful hosts. Both adults and kids were happy the whole time and the hot tub was a hit! Thanks so much to them both.
We had a great week here and although the chalet is away from the centre of resort the purple bus route has a stop just outside the chalet down the road to the right and stops at 10 and 40 minutes past the hour for transport to the main lifts. There is a well stocked carrefour supermarket in the middle of town for getting most things. The chalet is very comfortable and has everything you’d need. The ski/boot room is great and has boot warmers to dry out your boots at the end of the day. The kitchen is well appointed and the lounge is very comfy. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been fitted to a high standard and we couldn’t fault them for cleanliness and comfort. Overall a very pleasant stay and will definitely be back if we stay in Morzine again.
Apartment The View
Had a weeks holiday at the fantastic apartment, The View. Apartment was really lovely inside with everything required for a self catered holiday with excellent coffee machine. Beds were so comfortable and warm. Parking space was great for a drive in to town for a bit of shopping or the bus stop was 2 mins walk, which took you to Morzine or Avoriaz. The bars were 5 min walk for an apres ski or the large fridge stocked with a few beers. The children loved the Wifi and the views from the balcony was fantastic. Watching the paragliders landing outside the apartment at the end of the day was nice to see.
“Really nice little place, less than a 5 minute walk form Super M and literally next door to supermarket so we were pretty happy. We wanted somewhere close to town and good value, just somewhere to eat and sleep between boarding and going out, so it was pretty perfect for us! –
Sam (and friends)Guest
We have just returned from a fantastic ski week. A group of 8 stayed in the Apartment Amandine and it was absolutely fantastic. The apartment had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. It is so well kitted out and very tastefully decorated that none of the group after a day’s skiing wanted to venture out. We were very happy cooking in and watching some of the DVD collection and sitting round the lovely table chatting about the eventful days skiing. It was also very conveniently located to the Nyon lift and the bus stop into the village.
Just to say again how much we enjoyed the stay – the apartment suited us very well indeed and was superbly located for access to the ski lifts and shops whilst being away from all the noise of the town and après-ski – essential for middle-aged ladies!!
“The apartment is well decorated. Newly furbished toilet and washroom. Shower power is good. Good enough for 3 audlts. Private car park, but make sure you have snow chains or winter tyres. Communication with Mountain Xtra was easy and speedy. Late checkin can be arranged, which is a plus. Definitely recommended.”

Apartment Le Mouflon
Great apartment, excellent location, would definitely come back here. We stayed here with our 5 month old and the apartment and location had everything we needed for a weeks stay!

Apartment Le Pleney
Thank you for letting us use your apartment. It is well supplied and comfortable. We had a great time here. We can imagine coming back to Morzine for future holidays and staying here again.
Lovely apartment in Morzine, close to the town centre and good access to the slopes and local free ski buses. The apartment is modern, with great amenities, was clean in a new and well maintained apartment block.

The apartment was really nice with everything we needed
We had a lovely stay in apartment La Chicane. Thank you for letting us leave our bags in the cave on our check out day, it was really helpful!

“Fabulous apartment close to the slopes”
Fabulous apartment close to the slopes. We celebrated New Year here and had a wonderful time. The apartment is excellently located close to slopes, ski hire and just a short walk to the town centre. We were grateful for the comfortable beds and luxurious towels and bedding after a hard day on the slopes. The apartment is beautifully furnished and had a well equipped kitchen for us to be and feel very comfortable.

“Very spacious, well equipped and very clean”…
We were two families with children between 5 and 9 looking for a self catering chalet in a family friendly resort. We have been Les Gets a few times and wanted to find accommodation an easy walk from town!.
Perrieres is exactly as it looks on the website, very spacious, well equipped and very clean. We had a fab holiday and having young kids spent many evenings eating in and enjoying the apartment. We also used Ski Lifts which were also fab for our transfers from Geneva Airport.
We hired our skis from Intersport and they stored our equipment over night so we did not have walk home in ski boots and carrying skis which made the walk more enjoyable, it is a 15 min walk into town with kids maybe a bit quicker without them!
Would highly recommend this apartment for families or even 4 couples as there is ample room and three bathrooms.
Mountain Xtra were very helpful when making our arrangements for a fun filled holiday.

Really cosy apartment with everything you need in it
“Really cosy apartment with everything you need in it. Lovely personal touches. 5min walk to town (with ski boots and skis etc.) 2min walk from a supermarket. Beds are super comfy too! Really enjoyed our stay and couldn’t have asked for a better host 🙂 I would definitely go back!”
Ella, January 2018Guest
We have just completed a wonderful late summer/early autumn week in Chalet Cascades.
This is known as the off season but we have been delighted by the scale and varied opportunity to walk in this spectacular countryside, all helped by exceptional weather. The ski lifts may be closed, as are many shops and restaurants but a car soon gets you to your chosen venue and you often find that the country inns are open for good lunches. The local supermarket was always open at the times we wanted it as was the bakery.
The chalet is delightful having been kitted out to the highest standards making it comfortable to enjoy and relax after your magnificent and varied outdoor trips. The local maps help you plan your itinerary so it is easy to get to up to 1700m or more.

A great size for a family
We stayed 8 nights in late December and we were blessed with heaps of snow. The chalet is a great size for a family and is within easy walking distance of both gondolas and the shopping area. One of my teenagers stayed in the mezzanine without any problems.
Apartment Colombette was an absolute treat. Well equipped kitchen, nicely laid out apartment with so many added extras.. Wood burning stove (with logs included), garage, boot/board store, washing machine, games, and DVD’s. Easy access to the free bus to get to the ski lifts on our boarding days. Great place would highly recommend it.
Gary February 2019Guest
Just a quick note to say thanks for all the arrangements being perfect on our trip to Les Gets. The welcome pack was excellent and saved us worrying about food when we got there. We also used the door step ski hire delivery service and airport transfer links from your web site and both worked out perfectly. Thanks for a hassle free holiday!
Apartment Boston Glen
We loved our summer stay at Boston Glen! From the moment we walked in and to the moment we, sadly had to go. The perfect home from home.
The apartment has everything we needed and more. The little extras were appreciated and enhanced the experience, making us feel very welcome. The apartment is spacious and has a bright airy feel to it. The rooms were of decent size, with lots of storage space in each of the bedrooms. We loved the open plan living space and with it’s dinning table, perfect for cooking while planning our next day’s outing.
The location is perfect, a 10 minute walk from the town, so it was close enough to be near the action and far enough away to have our peace when we wanted it. The patio area is great with fantastic views. Actually, even the view from the bathroom was amazing. Getting ready to go out while watching the deer and fawn eating in the field outside! Literally over the fence! An amazing experience.
Morzine itself is beautiful and has the right balance of gorgeous, picture perfect mountain town/modern, convenient, have a good time town! We spent our time hiking in the mountains and walking around beautiful lakes. Not being overly familiar with the area, we found it very easy to drive from Geneva to Morzine and around Morzine. Even found ourselves making our way to a goat village (not for the faint hearted, those goats are hungry!) which was an experience that I thoroughly recommend.
Oh, how could I forget the decor! loved the Scottish/American theme. I laughed as I was able to put two and two together with the name, it only took me until the second day and it being pointed out to me!
During this stay it was only two of us holidaying this time, but we loved it so much we are already organising a trip back during the ski season with friends!
Thank you so much for an absolutely epic week! Chalet skyline was way beyond expectations – beautifully decorated, incredibly luxurious and fabulous build quality that is most unusual in a mountain chalet! Stunning panoramic views of the mountains. It’s lovely to stay somewhere that the kids are able to play outside in the snow, sledging, snowballing, snowman building…etc!!! Truly relaxing week and you guys made us feel very at home – in fact your lucky we left!
Katie, Emmie & OscarGuest
Chalet Cascades is a great property. Really clean, the ski/boot is fantastic for keeping everything organised. The upstairs in particular is wonderfully comfortable and luxurious and overall it was very well equipped. Generally we thought it was really fantastic.
Just overall a wonderful apartment to stay at, very good beds, all amenities are anyone could wish for are available, even spices, toiletries, coffee and tea are provided. Highly recommend!!
