Chalet The Manoir

Morzine, France
Sleeps 15 / 5 bedrooms
* Outdoor Hot Tub * Cinema Room with Pool Table*The Manoir is very special to Andy Sturt, here's why it means so much; "I first walked past this building in 1985, skis on shoulder, another day at the office. I've walked past a thousand times since and never once not stopped to admire the most beautiful building in Morzine. Everyone stops to look. I was excited when it came up for sale a few years ago, even more so when a good friend bought it."

The Manoir was built in 1790 and home to the local Notary for two centuries. Metre thick walls of local stone and horsehair, priceless mosaic floors, flagstone halls, towering ceilings, huge rooms from when space had no premium and timber and plaster detailing from when labour was cheap.

The chalet took on a complete transformation, it was stripped back and re-clad, retaining all its precious elements whilst layering in a sympathetic veneer of modern day essentials; walk-in showers, roll top baths, flat screen TVs and wifi at your pillow. Undoubtedly destined for the pages of 'House & Garden', The Manoir is the most eye-catching property that we operate across the Alps.

In essence The Manoir is just five bedrooms (three with extra beds in a kids' corner) to sleep up to 15 in the very centre of Morzine and two hundred yards from the piste. There are two lounges, one formal, one with TV, a magnificent dining room, a few fireplaces and a hot tub with a view to die for. Downstairs the cellar has also been transformed to offer a spacious ski and boot room and a wonderful cinema room complete with pool table. In reality, stepping in to this beautiful property will take your breath away.

We have partnered with our old friends at Mathias Sports in the centre of the village to provide our 'at home' ski & board rental service in Morzine. Once you are settled in the chalet and have embraced the afternoon tea and cake that awaits you on arrival, a member of the Mathias team will pop by to fit your pre-booked equipment without you having to leave the comfort of your chalet. At the end of your stay just leave your equipment in the chalet boot room. Don't forget to pre-book, here are the guide prices.
