Chalet La Grande Ourse (self-catered)

The natural Morzine slate throughout this luxury chalet was sourced from the slate mine opposite the chalet and provides a unique, artisanal finish. You can enjoy the stunning view of the Avoriaz cliffs through the stately living room windows or from the perfectly positioned outdoor hot tub. The chalet sleeps 8-12 people in 4 bedrooms and can be combined with the adjoining Chalet La Petite Ourse to accommodate up to 18 people.

“Lovely chalet in walking distance to Morzine with a cozy and spacious living room, a well-equipped kitchen, very neat sleeping rooms and bathrooms and perfect spa facilities, also quick and easy communication with the hosts!”

Buses go every 20 mins during peak times (8am-10am & 3pm – 7pm) and then every 30 mins for the rest of the day

Distance to free ski bus stop – 30 metres

The chalets are beautiful, clean, very well equipped, the hot tubs and sauna were just what we needed when returning from the slopes. We opted for the semi-catered option, which was fab, meals were prepared and cooked for us and left in our fridge with heating instructions, this meant we could return to the chalet and have dinner at our leisure -it was perfect.
