Chalet Chamois D'or

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:
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
Lovely chalet in a fabulous location. Would definitely like to come again. Rooms spacious, plenty of storage space. Hosts friendly, helpful and flexible.
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.
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.
Our hosts were very welcoming and we have enjoyed our stay
As always a very positive experience. Mountain Heaven always provide excellent value for money and Morzine is such a beautiful resort. Thank you!
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 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.
Hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome and went the extra mile with food given various tastes and allergies!
Mick and Orsalya are fantastic hosts. Had a fantastic week with them.
Excellent. Mick and Orsi were great hosts, extremely friendly and helpful. The chalet is very comfortable and well situated.
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.
Lovely chalet and hosts couldn't fault anything
Just great. Don't change a thing.
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!
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.
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!
6 star chalet host service, Shaun & Susan made our stay
All good we even are wanting to stay again next year
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
Chalet hosts are the best we have experienced ... Mick and Orsi are fabulous and it has been a marvellous experience.
Super service from Orsi and Mike ... Very helpful no matter what we asked and with the kids especially.
Excellent! had a lovely holiday lovely hosts, would recommend!
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!
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 & 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 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.
Orsi and Mick were totally outstanding....their helpfulness, thoughtfulness, culinary excellence....just terrific!
I cannot praise enough the host team!!!
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.
Excellent hosts and chalet.

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.
We both feel lucky to have the opportunity of working with Mountain Heaven this winter; we enjoy good company and good conversation, and look forward to meeting and spending quality time with you and hearing your stories too.
Food & wine
To prepare you for your day on the mountain, for breakfast you can tuck into a selection of cereals, yoghurts, bread, jam, honey and porridge made to order. Daily changing hot options include freshly prepared eggs, fluffy pancakes, smoked salmon, French toast and full English. All served with Yorkshire tea, if you like it as much as we do, or a choice of herbal and fruit teas, coffee and hot chocolate.
On arrival back to your chalet afternoon tea will be ready and waiting for you with a changing range of freshly baked cakes along with a choice of hot drinks, what better way to feel truly spoilt.
Our menu is freshly prepared using seasonal ingredients to create a delicious wholesome three course evening meal, accompanied by our specially selected choice of wines, followed by freshly brewed coffee or tea.
We are always happy to provide an earlier evening meal of family favourites, just let us know their likes and dislikes and we will do the rest.
All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using local ingredients. 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.

Our delicious wines are selected from France through the fantastic Le Verre Gourmand. A selection of red, white and rose wine has been handpicked for you to complement your meal and your taste buds. Here is the list of our fabulous wines for this season:
Rare Vineyards Blan de Blancs
This blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc gives a well-rounded refreshing wine made in the Languedoc – Roussillon. The fresh, fruity aroma leads to citrus in the mouth with light acidity making it a great wine to enjoy before dinner.
Chemin des Pins Sauvignon Blanc 2014
This wine is lip-smackingly fresh and crisp, You’ll find all the classic Sauvignon characteristics of lemon, lime and green grass, but there are hints of slightly riper fruit, too.
This is a great modern-style red blend from the South of France - full of juicy red and black fruit flavours, alongside a spot of spice and warmth. It's not too heavy, so it will work best alongside slightly lighter red meat dishes - or even poultry. The addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to the Grenache and Carignan gives the wine just a bit more ooomph, while retaining its easygoing character.
Les Roches Bleues
Bright red colouring with violet glints. A complex bouquet with aromas of blackberries, spices and toffee. Nice balance in the mouth thanks to the plant flavours, and subtle tannins. The finish lingers long on the black fruit, the spices and toffee aromas
Mas du Canal Rose
For refreshing, pale, dry, yet crisply fruity rose, look no further than this wine from the south of France. It is delightfully fresh and zingy on the palate, with bright red fruits (redcurrants, raspberries) lighting things up. It is seriously thirst-quenching stuff
Note: At the beginning of each season some of the wines may be unavailable and so we may substitute for other wines of equal quality
We understand a holiday can sometimes be stressful particularly if you, or one of your family members have food allergies or special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater for your needs however most ski resorts simply do not offer the selection of Gluten, Lactose or Dairy free products available in UK supermarkets.
In order to plan the menu and source relevant ingredients it is important that you advise us at the time of booking (or at least two weeks before you depart for your holiday).
These are the products we can get at no additional charge:
Gluten Free Flour
Gluten Free Pasta
Gluten free cakes
Pulse and grains
For additional products such as dairy free spreads, soy yogurts, gluten free cereals and meat substitutes due to the high cost of these items in the Alps we make an additional charge of £20 per person in order to source the right ingredients for you. If you have any questions or concerns, we would be more than happy to speak with you personally to ensure we can get things just right for you.
All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using where ever possible local ingredients. 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.
