Chalet Chamois D'or

- 7 bedrooms
Unsurprisingly given its traditional ambience and superb skiing, Morzine is one of the most popular resorts in the Alps with good property hard to come by. Many resort guests spend a lot of their day standing around waiting for over-crowded resort shuttle busses or walking long distances in their skiwear to the nearest lift. So we were delighted to secure our Chalet Chamois D'Or, located in a truly prime location just seconds away from the Nyon cable car and ski slopes.
From its hillside location above the resort this large detached chalet offers stunning panoramic mountain views and the position also fills the building with light, making it a joy to stay in and hugely popular. For the ultimate luxury there’s even an outdoor hot tub on the sun terrace allowing you to capture the beautiful views of the mountains.

Chamois D'Or offers superb access to the whole of the Porte de Soleil Ski region. It is situated beside the Nyon Cable Car, which is accessed down the garden steps so couldn't be more convenient. You are able to ski back along the winding Chamois Piste through the forest to within 100 metres of the Chalet. From the Nyon cable car you can ski the slopes up on Pointe Nyon, which holds some of the best skiing and boarding in the area.
Morzine town centre is a 15 minute stroll along a pretty forest path which runs alongside a stream. A free shuttle bus stops right outside the chalet which goes directly into town where there are a huge variety of shops, bars and restaurants.
When you book the whole chalet you only pay for 13 people

This is a selection of the feedback we received on this chalet and the hosts this season:
6 star chalet host service, Shaun & Susan made our stay
Excellent. Mick and Orsi were great hosts, extremely friendly and helpful. The chalet is very comfortable and well situated.
All good we even are wanting to stay again next year
Our stay at Chamois D'Or was extremely pleasing. The weather and the skiing at Portes du Soleil were perfect for our Canadian desires. Our host and hostess, Mick and Orsi were kind, friendly and talented both as cooks and as ambassadors for Mountain Heaven. our accommodations were clean and welcoming. We recommend this stay without hesitation and can only hope to return someday very soon.
We have had a fabulous week. We have been so well looked after by Shaun and Susan. We have been comfortable in the chalet and the proximity to the nyon cable car and nyon bus, was fabulous. The boot room worked well. Mountain Heaven were very easy to deal with. We appreciated the guidance regarding lift passes and the ski hire company delivering to the chalet was very efficient. We had a broken boot noticed at 830am and one of the guys from the ski hire company met me 15minutes later at the bottom of the cable car with a new pair of boots in time for ski lesson. Greatly appreciated. Can't praise Shaun and Susan enough. So incredibly kind and efficient.
Hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome and went the extra mile with food given various tastes and allergies!
Super service from Orsi and Mike ... Very helpful no matter what we asked and with the kids especially.
Chalet hosts are the best we have experienced ... Mick and Orsi are fabulous and it has been a marvellous experience.
Lovely chalet and hosts couldn't fault anything
Host were great, they went the extra kilometre for unmade the gluten free and vege options incredible, thank you Thru chalet was very clean, lovely and great location
Our hosts were very welcoming and we have enjoyed our stay
Hosts were excellent. Chalet was nice and clean, good size rooms and amenities were good. Location is great for lifts and skiing.
Orsi and Mick went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They are a credit to MH.
Must say Orsi and Mike have been superb. Have had to deal with a range of differing diet requirements which they have coped admirably.
Morzine has so much more to offer than most resorts.
A big thank you to our chalet hosts Mick & Orsi who went above and beyond for us all week. The food was outstanding including the wine. Chalet was very comfortable and exceptionally handy to the lifts. Thank you Mick & Orsi for such a great week!
Excellent! had a lovely holiday lovely hosts, would recommend!
We had a great stay at chamois d'or. Mick and Orshi were very welcoming and great hosts. The food and wine were good and we really enjoyed our stay.
Very slick booking and helpful with any queries, lovely chalet and in a great location at Nyon. Easy for direct access to Nyon cabin and also easy to get the bus to both Pleney or Avoriaz.
Our hosts Mick and Orsi were superb. Our welcome was outstanding, the friendliest we have ever had, very inviting. We felt at home and comfortable from the start of the holiday. They were great with the children and were just lovely genuine people who made our holiday very special.
The menu was excellent for both adults and children, portions for older children also excellent. Wines also very good, better than in most chalets we have previously been in. Walk to Morzine is easy, brisk 20 minutes for adult and children on the evening out, even with 8 children. Definitely recommend, excellent from start to finish.
Lovely chalet. Great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed the hot tub experience. Chalet is in a handy spot, but I don't think you mentioned on your website about the door to door free buses in and out of Moraine which I think would be a good selling point for you.
Mick & Orsi have been one of the best chalet hosts who have looked after us, they are an asset to Mountain Heaven.
This has been our fourth year using Mountain Heaven & we will return next year.
We have had a excellent time in the chalet and resort. The hosts have been amazing, very friendly and have helped make the holiday. The food has been to a excellent standard as has every thing else. Great for kids too!
We have really enjoyed our time here. The best thing about the stay has been our hosts, Micky and Orsi. They have been fabulous and have really gone above and beyond for us, even as a large group of 10. They have offered a friendly atmosphere and Micky even went in to town to hunt down a onesie for one of us. Very chilled atmosphere and lovely food.
Mick and Orsi have been remarkable hosts. With 10 years of ski chalet holidays both Mountain Heaven in the UK and these two lovely people it has been my favourite ski holiday ever,Chalet is perfectly situated.
We have been lucky to share the experience with some lovely fellow guests. I would definitely recommend to friends.
Big thank you!
great location for the lift... Accommodation good value.... Hosts, handled the dynamic of the mixture of characters brilliantly.. Would highly recommend it on all levels
Lovely chalet in a fabulous location. Would definitely like to come again. Rooms spacious, plenty of storage space. Hosts friendly, helpful and flexible.
Just great. Don't change a thing.
We have had a great stay Susan and Shaun have made sure we have been taken care of. Lift passes here on arrival and door step skis have worked very well to for those that hired kit. One pair of boots did not fit so they headed off and got a new pair. Chalet has been very clean and tidy
Mick and Orsalya are fantastic hosts. Had a fantastic week with them.
Excellent hosts and chalet.
As always a very positive experience. Mountain Heaven always provide excellent value for money and Morzine is such a beautiful resort. Thank you!
Orsi and Mick were totally outstanding....their helpfulness, thoughtfulness, culinary excellence....just terrific!
I cannot praise enough the host team!!!

Meet your host
Michael and Orsolya
We are a long-term, harmonious and happy couple. A few years ago we began to think of ways to change the way we live and work. In April 2016 we decided to jump ship take a chance and set sail to work the spring-summer festival season in the UK as therapists. Before April 2016 we were based in London for many years. Mick originally from the North of England worked as the Head of Field Operations for the largest Corporate News Delivery Specialist in the UK, JYL. Orsi from Hungary has seven years hospitality experience and managed one of the best vegetarian restaurants in London, the Vanilla Black, cooked, juiced and guided people detoxing and to live a healthier life as a nutritionist.
After another summer working the UK festivals this year and because we had such a great experience there last year with just about everybody who came through our door, we’ve decided to return to Chalet Chamois D’or for another season with its wonderful character, fabulous location, the Point du Nyon ski lift is literally a stones throw from the back door, and Morzine apart from snow, has so much to offer. We are genuinely looking forward to working the winter season 2017- 2018 with Mountain Heaven again and spending quality time with you and hearing your stories too
Food & wine
Mountain Heaven is a small company with a big wish: for you to enjoy an amazing ski holiday. So put your feet up and let us look after you, taking care of all the cooking and cleaning so you can make the most of your precious time. During your stay we will serve you hearty breakfasts, tasty home-made cake for afternoon tea and a delicious three course evening meal each evening for six nights of your stay, all complimented with unlimited bottled wine.
As skiers ourselves, we know how important breakfast is to set you up for a good day on the mountain so take your pick from porridge and eggs cooked to order, French bread, preserves, flaky croissants, yoghurt, muesli, cereals and each day a differing cooked option which includes sausages and bacon, fluffy pancakes, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, all served alongside fruit juice and freshly brewed coffee or our specially imported Yorkshire tea.
It’s a favourite chalet tradition, coming back to your chalet at the end of a hard day on the piste to a freshly baked cake along with tea and coffee.
Put your feet up and relax with a Vin Chaud while your host cooks your delicious three course candlelit dinner. Our evening meals are friendly and sociable so you can take your time and enjoy the food in a dinner party atmosphere.
Our menu is freshly prepared to create delicious wholesome dishes that range from local mountain favourites such as a traditional rich boeuf bourguignon to delicately fragrant chicken all served with delicious accompaniments and seasonal vegetables. We finish with scrumptious desserts such as a classic warming apple crumble or a melt in your mouth chocolate fondant. All of our food is complimented with a choice of handpicked wines supplied by our wine merchant Le Verre Gourmand and finally we round off the evening with freshly brewed coffee and tea.
Your host will serve our house wine throughout the meal which we have specially chosen to accompany the dishes on our menu. We have a good selection of white and red wines based on our pre-season wine tastings which we do every year plus invaluable feedback that we receive each year from our guests. In addition when you book the whole chalet you may upgrade to our premium selection please contact us for details
We are always happy to provide an earlier evening meal of family favourites, for our younger guests, just let us know their likes and dislikes and we will do the rest.
If you have any particular dietary requirements please talk to us beforehand so we can do our best to get things just how you like it. We are able to source some ingredients for you as long as we know beforehand. Vegetarian options are available on our normal chalet menus and there is no charge for this.
We can cater for other special diets such a vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, specific food allergies. Etc. There will be a charge of £40 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared. Due to our delivery service for food it does mean that we cannot cater for any special diets that have not been notified to us at least 2 weeks before arrival.
Staff Day off
Our chalet staff have one day off during your stay. On their day off breakfast is provided for you and it will be all laid out the night before. In the evening it’s a great chance to try out one of the local restaurants; your chalet host will know all the good ones and will be pleased to make a reservation for you.
Mountain Heaven “Plus” Service Option
We offer a Mountain Heaven “Plus” option to all guests who have booked a whole chalet and wish to upgrade to this service.
