You'll feel immediately at home when you enter the beautiful Chalet Gueret, which is decorated in a French mountain style - pine panelling, painted furniture, cosy sofas and a roaring fire all contribute to making your holiday unforgettable.
Accommodation is set over four floors. As you enter on the lower ground floor, there's plenty of space to leave your outdoor clothes and shoes. There's also a ski room in the basement, as well as a laundry room with drying facilities.
After an active day in the mountains, you might like to head straight for the sauna, which has its own wet room and relaxation area. There's also a separate toilet. Younger guests will love the games room, with its huge sofa, TV with surround sound and games consoles.
Head upstairs to find the main living area - comfortable sofas and armchairs are arranged in front of the fireplace, and a huge antique dining table where everyone can eat together. From here you can step out on to the sunny balcony, with views over the valley to the mountains. There's also a wonderful terrace, where you can watch for shooting stars as the snow falls around you.
If you're seeking a bit of privacy, try the library, where you'll find a good selection of books and games. There is also an additional study/small dining room - the perfect place for an intimate meal.
The large kitchen has a range cooker, two dishwashers, two large fridge freezers and a microwave, making cooking for a large crowd a real pleasure.
There are two double bedrooms on this floor, both with bathrooms and separate showers. The first, with a brass bed and pretty painted furniture, has doors on to the terrace, while the second which has a wooden sleigh bed, opens on to a balcony with valley views.
There are four more bedrooms on the top floor. The first room can be arranged with a kingsize or twin beds, and has a bath with shower over. This room opens on to the balcony, from which you can cross a small bridge to the pool and garden terrace.

The garden at Chalet Gueret comes into its own in the summer - there's a heated summer pool (20m x 10m) surrounded by a child-proof fence, and a sunny terrace with glorious views.
There's parking for up to five cars at the front and side of the chalet.
About the area ...
Chalet Gueret's location in the village of Essert Romand is ideal for exploring the 12 ski stations of the Portes du Soleil. Despite its tranquil location, you're just a few minutes from the busy ski stations of Morzine and Les Gets.
With 650km of pistes, almost 200 lifts and endless cross-country skiing, you’ll never be bored of this winter sports paradise.The resorts cross the border, so why not ski into Switzerland for lunch? But be careful which route you choose - the Swiss Wall is a piste that challenges even the most experienced skiers.
If you’re not a skier, or if you fancy a change from the slopes, Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which regularly play host to ice hockey matches. The more adventurous might like to 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 in Morzine offers a variety of activities for all ages.
When the snow melts, the slopes around Morzine and Montriond become a haven for walkers, mountain bikers and thrill-seekers.
Just a short drive from Chalet Gueret, the lifts will transport you and your bike up the mountains, leaving you to come back down at your leisure.
Morzine has earned the Famille Plus status for its excellent childcare and entertainment - a perfect choice for young families. There are superb water parks in Morzine and Avoriaz, plus two summer sledging runs. The Indiana adventure park has a range of assault courses to suit all ages.
Other activities include climbing, rafting, via ferrata, canyoning, mini-golf, quad bikes, fishing, kayaking and hiking. Don’t forget to visit the nearby Lake Montriond, for swimming, lakeside walks and the beautiful Brochaux waterfalls. You can also visit nearby cheese farms, buy fresh fist at Morzine's trout lake, and buy wonderful delicacies at the local markets.
If you are already picturing yourself relaxing with friends at the luxurious Chalet Gueret, check your holiday dates against our availability calendar. We can hold up to two weeks for you, with no obligation, while you check with the rest of your group.
But don't leave it too long - we'd hate you to miss out on this special holiday.

The OVO Network Review
Chalet Gueret is a converted farmhouse for 14, with six en suite bedrooms set over three floors.
Set in the quiet village of Essert Romand, between Morzine and Montriond, you'll need a car to get around. However, there is a bar / restaurant within a few minutes walk, and it's just a short drive or taxi ride into Morzine.
There's plenty of space for four or five cars outside the chalet, with more parking space nearby, should you need it.
We love the individually-styled bedrooms at Chalet Gueret, all of which have their own bathrooms and most of which have doors on to a balcony or terrace - a coffee and some fresh mountain air is the best way to start your day! Some of the balconies lead across a small bridge into the garden - in the summer you can wander straight out of your bedroom and head for the pool.
When you're spending time in a large group, it's important that everyone can find some privacy when they need to, and this is where Chalet Gueret excels - with a games room for teenagers, a library area where you can curl up with a book, an intimate study with a dining table for a special meal and a wonderful large seating area, you can choose to get together or find your own space.
The kitchen, obviously equipped by someone who loves to cook, is a delight - a good set of knives, plenty of baking equipment and all the gadgets you need are a rare find in a holiday property. You may not want to spend much time in the kitchen, but if you do, you won't be disappointed!
There's a wonderful traditional feel to Chalet Gueret, with its painted furniture, carved wooden beds and pine panelling, you'll be in no doubt that you are in the mountains. But it comes with plenty of modern comforts too - the perfect place for a family holiday.

From the owner
We holidayed there ourselves in 2006 and continued to visit until we were luckily enough to buy it in 2014. It has an amazingly peaceful and restorative atmosphere and a wow factor that photos sometime fail to convey.
While it’s primarily a family home, full of beautiful things, we are delighted to be able to share it. The high number of repeat guests is testament to how much everyone loves Gueret.
We hope that you have a fantastic holiday in this amazing place.

“Family Chalet near Morzine”
Had a lovely time with our family. The house is roomy, well-equipped, full of books and games, and has everything a cook could want. The pictures are completely representative of the place. Morzine is a magical place. Highly recommended.
“I fully recommend this vacation rental”
I fully recommend this vacation rental, but it's important to have a car to get around easily.
