Chalet Bellanis ...
If you want a great choice of mountain sports right on your doorstep, this traditional chalet for 11 guests in the heart of Morzine is an obvious choice. Just 250m from the Super-Morzine ski lifts and right next door to the sports centre, swimming pool and ice rink, you'll never be short of something to do! In the summer, this chalet is a member of the multipass scheme offering an opportunity to buy a pass to walking lifts, tennis courts, pools, ice rink, lakes and more for only 2.5 euros a day!
As well as being perfectly placed for the outdoor life, Chalet Bellanis is just a short walk from all the bars, restaurants and shops of Morzine, so when you get back from an active day in the mountains, you don't have far to go to enjoy the evening. A five-minute walk will bring you to the heart of village life, as well as the tourist office.
In the summer, enjoy river walks, tennis and horse riding just a few steps from your door, as well as swimming, treetop adventures and street hockey in the Parc Dereches.
And when you return to Chalet Bellanis, you can enjoy the evening sunshine on the wraparound balcony or head out for a meal at one of Morzine's many popular restaurants.
About the property ...
You'll enter Chalet Bellanis via the ski room with laundry facilities and an extra fridge freezer - you can store your skis here and pop your boots on the heated rack before heading up to the living area. There's also a double bedroom on this floor with plenty of storage, a wall-mounted television, an en suite bathroom and a separate toilet.
The cosy living area is on the first floor - the practical open-plan kitchen has a large five-ring gas hob, and there are two full-size ovens - great when you're cooking for a crowd. There's also a fridge freezer, a microwave and a dishwasher.
The large dining table, which has plenty of room for everyone to eat together, separates this from the cosy seating area, where comfortable sofas are arranged around the wall-mounted television. Doors open from here on to the sunny balcony, which has views over the river to the village and mountains beyond.
There's another bedroom on this floor - a spacious double room with good storage, a television and an adjacent bathroom. This bedroom opens on to the balcony - a great place to start your day with a coffee. There's also a separate shower room on this floor.
You'll find three more bedrooms on the upper mezzanine floor, which overlooks the living area. The first room has three single beds, the next has twin beds and the third has a king size bed which can be arranged as two single beds. The last two rooms each have a handbasin.
There's plenty of parking right outside Chalet Bellanis - a real plus for a chalet that's so close to all the facilities of Morzine, but in such a great location, you may want to just park up your car and forget about it for the duration of your stay.
About the area ...
Chalet Bellanis really couldn't be better placed to enjoy all the facilities of Morzine. With the sports centre and ice rink right next door, the swimming pool complex just a few steps further, and tennis courts right opposite, those looking for an sporting holiday are right in the heart of the action.
The Super Morzine ski lift and ski bus stop are just a five-minute walk away, as is the centre of the village, with a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops.
If you're visiting in winter, Chalet Bellanis is a great base from which to explore the 12 ski stations of the Portes du Soleil. With 650km of pistes, almost 200 lifts and a huge choice of cross-country skiing, you’ll never be bored of this winter sports paradise. The resorts cross the Franco-Swiss border, so why not ski into Switzerland for lunch? But be careful which route you choose - the moguls of the Swiss Wall piste will challenge even the most experienced skiers.
If you’re not a skier, or if you fancy a change from the slopes, you can try snowmobiling, ice-diving, or tandem paragliding. If you’d rather discover the area in a more sedate manner, try a sleigh ride.
Other ways to have fun include snowshoeing and sledging, while the Indiana adventure park just a short walk from Chalet Bellanis offers a variety of tree-top activities for all ages.
When the snow melts, the slopes around Morzine become a haven for walkers, mountain bikers and thrill-seekers - and the lifts will transport you and your bike up the mountains, leaving you to come back down at your leisure.
Morzine has earned Famille Plus status for its excellent childcare and entertainment - a perfect choice for families. Other activities include climbing, rafting, via ferrata, canyoning, mini-golf, quad bikes, fishing, and kayaking. Don’t forget to visit the nearby village of Montriond, for lakeside walks and the beautiful Brochaux waterfalls.
If you'd like to be at the heart of the sporting action on your next mountain holiday, why not check your holiday dates against our availability calendar for Chalet Bellanis? We can hold up to two weeks for you for 24 hours, with no obligation, while you finalise your arrangements.
But don't wait too long - this great chalet is very popular with our guests.

The OVO Network Review
Chalet Bellanis is a three-storey chalet for 11 guests, with five bedrooms and three bathrooms close to all the leisure facilities, shops and restaurants of Morzine.
Situated right next door to the Palais des Sports, the water park and the tennis courts, and just a few minutes from the Super Morzine and the ski bus, it's ideally located for those who enjoy the great outdoors.
Families in particular will love the range of activities available just a short walk away - there are gentle walks along the river for young families and the Parc Dereches has a huge choice of activities for older children - horse-riding, street hockey, a skatepark and tree-top adventures are just some of them. Summer or winter, there's always something going on just minutes from this convenient home.
With bedrooms spread across the three floors, there is plenty of privacy for separate families or multi-generational groups. The three bedrooms on the top floor, two of which are ideal for children, make a great family area, although it's worth noting that there is no toilet or bathroom on this floor.
We love the practical ski room with a heated boot warmer and laundry facilities - none of your sports equipment has to go upstairs into the main house! The sunny wraparound balcony is also a great place to relax after an energetic day in the mountains.
The owners of this well-loved chalet have been visiting since their children were babies, and have always found plenty to entertain their growing family. It's not difficult to see why - with so many facilities on your doorstep, there's plenty of fun to be had!

From the owner
David & Annie
Bought as a wedding present to ourselves some 34 years ago our much loved Alpine base Chalet Bellanis (formerly Chalet Le Serac) has been a truly wonderful home to spend many happy holidays with family and friends.
We first introduced our eldest daughter to the mountains when she was three months old and have returned with our two girls, now adults themselves, year on year to enjoy all that the mountains have to offer. Easy access to the Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz areas of the famous and vast Portes Du Soleil skiing area have allowed us to enjoy a huge variety of skiing over the years in both the French and Swiss resorts - we have on occasions travelled miles for the right hot chocolate!
Morzine is a resort where in winter non-skiers can access the first level of the lift system (there’s a free bus service to various bases) This has enabled us to host beyond memorable holidays across our family's generations - an age range of 3yrs-80yrs enjoying lunch together in mountain restaurants in both Avoriaz and Les Lindarets is beyond special.
Summer also offers so much that we enjoy, with the lifts opening up stunning walks and hiking on the well-marked trails. The lakes freeze and are covered with snow in winter, but offer open swimming, kayaks, paddle-boarding and many water activities in the summer.
We’ve recently added a hidden refuge hut to our list of “places to head to” - it's only open in summer and high on the hill (up in a chairlift) It's a stunning and quiet spot to enjoy much-needed sustenance for the breathtaking walk home.
Now this area is a mountain biking mecca too. We can’t say we’ve really mastered that sport, but it’s on offer for those who have or would like to.
We enjoy using the tennis courts just opposite and the ice hockey rink, swimming pool and sports centre next door, plus it's a lovely local walk along the river to the riding stables.
Morzine itself is a charming ski village, with many local restaurants, bars, shops, weekly market and amenities. It has catered brilliantly for our needs as we’ve headed through the years of tinies to teenagers to the adults of right now.
We love our mountain home and hope you will too, to us it is simply “our go-to place” Many guests over the years have booked and indeed returned to enjoy our traditional wooden chalet in the heart of Morzine.
Should you choose to stay here - we hope you will have a fabulous time and love it too!

“Ideal family vacation spot”
Perfect location for our family. Very clean and comfortable. Chrissie, the chalet manager, was extremely nice to deal with. Will definitely return!
“Cozy chalet near ski lift”
Perfect location, close to the Super Morzine ski lift and the town center. We enjoyed our stay with 11 people. The house is well-equipped and having a washing machine was very handy. We highly recommend Chalet Bellanis!
“Love to stay again”
This place is well located next to the Super Morzine gondola and close to rental/retail shops, restaurants and the supermarket.
The ice rink and swimming pool are right next door. Lifts to the village are 100m away. Our group had a great time and I would stay there again.
Chrissie the chalet manager was very responsive and the place was well stocked with the basic things you need for a good stay. The washing machine was not working, but Chrissie managed to get someone to look at that when we were there which was appreciated. Unfortunately the wifi wasn’t flakey, but none of us were working so it wasn’t a deal breaker.
