Chalet 1788 (self-catered)

Originally built in 1788 by one of Morzine’s founding families, our lovingly converted barn seemlessly combines modern luxuries with stunning original features. Listed in The Times 20 coolest chalets & just 50m from the bus stop taking you straight to the slopes, it sleeps 10-12 people in 5 bedrooms (each named after one of Morzine’s founding families), each with their own private bathrooms. Relax after a hard day on the mountains in the brand new wellness area, complete with sauna & outdoor hot-tub. Whether you are cosying up in front of the log fire in the living room or eating in the stylish dining room, you will always be surrounded by views of the magical mountains.

Chalet 1788 Bathroom

Rare 18th century construction with exceptional modern bathrooms

The historical features in this chalet are superb & give you a glimpse of Morzine when it was not much more than small mining town – the original stone & wooden beams from 1788 plus remnants of the old sausage smokery that was built in 1836 make this a real gem. But if there is one thing that everyone appreciates, it’s a modern bathroom and there are plenty of them here.
