If you don't fancy going out, you can relax in the sauna or the outdoor hot tub overlooking the slopes, while the children enjoy tobogganing in the garden.
Decorated in a cosy mountain style, there's always a warm welcome when you return to Chalet Les Ecureuils after a snowy day in the mountains.

About the property

A cosy seating area is separated from the well-equipped kitchen and dining area by a central fireplace. You'll get French and English channels on the television, and there's also an office area and table football.

About the area
You can explore the whole of the Portes du Soleil ski area from this ski-in, ski-out chalet in the heart of Morzine. You can even ski in to Switzerland, but be warned, only the most accomplished skiers should tackle the Swiss Wall - a huge mogul field which is classified as an orange route - too hazardous for a black! But with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities.
If you’re not a skier, Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which host ice hockey matches from time to time, and the local cinema often 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 offers a variety of activities for all ages.
In summer, the area is a great destination for an outdoor holiday. Walking, hiking and biking trails crisscross the mountains, and you can save your legs by taking the lift to the top and enjoying a leisurely descent.
You can swim, canoe or paddle board at nearby Lake Montriond, or just enjoy a gentle walk around its shores before lunch at the restaurant.
