Overview

It’s hard to believe that Chalet Agapes is a modern build - nestling in the woods close to the beautiful Lake Montriond, it looks like it has been there for ever!

It’s also deceptively spacious - built in to a slope, there’s an extra floor you can only see from the back.

Its location is perfect for those arriving by car - just a few minutes drive from the Ardent cable car, which will whisk you into the Avoriaz ski area. It’s just a short walk from lakeside restaurants and a few minutes drive from the traditional town of Morzine.

This 3 star chalet has a garden, sunny terrace and balcony on the back of the property, to catch the sun, and there’s no better place to relax, with the mountains towering above you.

About the property

The cosy but deceptively spacious Chalet Agapes sleeps up to 8 people in four bedrooms. All have private showers or baths. Two of them have access to the sunny balcony, while the largest, on the top floor, is perfect for a family, with a double bed, a sofa bed for larger groups, and an en suite bathroom.

On the lower ground floor, the open plan living area opens on to the terrace and garden - throw open the doors in the summer and let all that crisp mountain air flood in!

The modern kitchen is well equipped, and with seats at the breakfast bar, it’s a sociable place to cook up a feast. The large dining table will seat everyone, although if it’s warm enough, take your dinner outside to the picnic benches on the terrace. In colder weather, light up the woodburner and toast your toes as you reflect on a great day in the mountains.

About the area

Great skiing in every direction - you’ll be spoilt for choice

Chalet Agapes is in an idyllic location in the Le Lavanchy area of Montriond, between the resorts of Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets.

Although a car is essential to get here, the whole of the Portes du Soleil are on your doorstep, and with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities.Try L’Abricotine - one of the longest runs in the Portes du Soleil, which descends 8km along the Swiss-French border to the Ardent cable car, via the snow-bound village of Les Lindarets (a great place to stop for lunch).

This cosy chalet is the perfect base from which to discover the area - you can ski into Switzerland for lunch and be back for dinner. It’s also worth the short drive to Mont Chery, a standalone mountain with great off-piste, where you’ll get fabulous views of Mont Blanc and, if you’re early, plenty of fresh powder.

If you’re not a skier, there are indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks in Morzine, which are often host to ice hockey matches, and the local cinema shows films in English. The more adventurous might like to try snowmobiling or ice-climbing on some of the area’s frozen waterfalls, or discover the area in a more sedate manner on a sleigh ride.

Other ways to have fun include snowshoeing and sledging, while the Indiana adventure park in Morzine offers a variety of activities for all ages.

Summer brings its own special magic to the Alps

Summer in the Portes du Soleil is very special, with snowy slopes replaced by lush green pastures, which are a natural playground for walkers, mountain bikers and thrill-seekers.

From Agapes, it’s just a 10-minute walk to the beautiful Lac du Montriond, where you can swim, canoe, follow the biking and hiking trails or enjoy a pony ride. It’s a great place for a picnic, but there are also some excellent restaurants.

The impressive Brochaux waterfalls are worth a visit, as is Les Lindarets, where goats wander free in the summer. Neighbouring Morzine has earned Famille Plus status for its excellent childcare and entertainment - the perfect choice for young families.

There are superb water parks in Morzine and Avoriaz, plus two summer sledging runs, while the Indiana adventure park has a range of assault courses to suit all ages. Golfers will find excellent courses in Les Gets and Avoriaz.

Other activities include climbing, rafting, via ferrata, canyoning, mini-golf, quad bikes, fishing, kayaking and hiking. You can also take advantage of the Portes du Soleil Multi Pass, offering unrestricted access to the full range of family activities.

Stay close to home or go exploring, there’s so much to see

The traditional village of Montriond, along with neighbouring Morzine and Avoriaz, offers plenty of variety for a holiday, whatever the time of year, but if you venture a little further, there’s lots more to discover.

The Portes du Soleil resorts cross the border into Switzerland, giving you two countries and two cultures to explore. It’s just over half an hour’s drive to Lake Geneva, where you can visit lakeside resorts the pretty spa town of Evian-les-Bains, or the beautiful medieval village of Yvoire. You can also cruise to other lakeside towns such as Lausanne and Montreal.

In Chamonix, just an hour’s drive away, you can take a ride on the second-largest cable car in the world, and take in the spectacular views from Mont Blanc. Geneva airport is just an hour away from Agapes, so if you don’t see everything this time, you’ll just have to stay a little longer.

Guest reviews

“Comfortable chalet in a very calm location”

We really enjoyed the chalet. The location is perfect and the terrace is large and super quiet. Comfortable chalet, very calm, well located for all kinds of activities. We had a wonderful week.

— Dieter G. Aug 2021

“Fantastic time”

We had a fantastic time at Chalet Agapes. It is a beautiful chalet in a quiet location and has everything you need for a two week holiday. The chalet is located just outside Montriond and a car is necessary to access Morzine. Lac Montriond is a fifteen minute walk away and is a beautiful place to relax. I would highly reccommend Chalet Agapes for a peaceful holiday in a beautiful part of the world.Beautiful chalet, beautiful location, had everything we needed.

“The chalet is just as described”

We were very satisfied with the welcome, the kindness and the helpfulness of the team from My Home in the Alps.

— Annick L. Feb 2017

“Very nice stay”

The location was fantastic and the chalet was very well equipped. The living area is fabulous. Lake Montriond was wonderful while we love Morzine.

— Chris H. Aug 2016

“Very satisfied”

We had a great family holiday in your beautiful chalet, which was well equipped and close to the pistes. The welcome was great and we loved the little extras (a bottle of white wine, disposable tooth brush and shower gel). The chalet was very clean, and the key safe was very practical. We were very happy, will recommend this chalet and hope to come back next season, or maybe in the spring.

— Patrice A. Apr 2016

“We would definitely recommend this place”

A lovely chalet in a lovely spot if you prefer not to be in the main resorts (which we prefer!). Very easy to get to the bubble lift at Ardent and park every morning (we left the chalet at 8.40 am every morning and had no problem). The chalet itself is spacious and light and well furnished and equipped.

— Tracey H. Feb 2016

“Pure perfection!”

Chalet Agapes is a wonderful chalet, run by wonderful people. We couldn't have asked for more during our stay, and we of course hope to be back soon in the near future. The chalet is well equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay, and the open plan living space downstairs is a sure winner! It's the perfect social area for the whole family and has more than enough room to accommodate everyone at the same time. It's a real home from home Chalet and immediately makes you feel welcome. The location is superb, as you're only a few minutes drive from Morzine town centre where there is a local supermarket and plenty of shops/restaurants, and in the opposite direction you have Ardent - which gives you direct access up to a wide range of ski slopes. All in all, extremely satisfied with our week at Chalet Agapes - 10/10.
