The White Valley Lodge & Spa is a gorgeously stylish, contemporary ski chalet in a lovely elevated location with dazzling mountain views plus fabulous ‘steam & sauna’ wooden barrel spa and oversized hot tub. What’s not to adore about all that?
Think reclaimed oak flooring, sumptuous sofas, designer chandeliers, giant full- aspect glass windows and knock-out views over the Vallee de la Manche and the Point de Nyon and Pleney pistes. This luxury ski chalet is spacious and stylish and has panoramic views of the entire valley from the large, wrap-around balconies.
There are five cleverly designed bedrooms spread over three floors. These come with everything from deep pocket sprung beds with luxury toppers to rainmaker showers, flat screen TVs and individual Sonos sound systems. Even the toiletries are properly luxe – Bamford organics – and the bathrooms are stocked with GHD hairdryers plus complimentary bathrobes and slippers.
All the beds can be configured as kingsize or singles, with pillows of your choice, no less, and one room is larger than the others and includes full size custom-built bunk beds, making it perfect for a family or group of four.
This luxury catered Morzine ski chalet offers fine dining at its very best. Its chef is hugely talented and works genuine magic with his dishes.
Dinner is served on five out of the seven nights, starting with pre-dinner drinks accompanied by delicious hand-made canapés. These are followed by a fantastic four course dinner. On one evening the chalet also offers a luxury Perrier Jouet champagne reception. Wines are excellent and meticulously paired with the food.
Afternoon tea consists of meltingly good homemade cakes and treats along with teas and coffees, and breakfasts consist of both hot and cold options each morning, all prepared freshly to order.
The clue is in the name! The White Valley Lodge & Spa is big on ‘spa’. It has a completely private leisure and spa deck, located to the side of the lodge. This features a large sauna/steam barrel, a huge jacuzzi plus even a cold plunge pool. In-lodge beauty treatments are bookable, from an extensive treatment menu, and sports massages can also be arranged at extra cost.
This luxury ski chalet welcomes children. It has a large selection of games and books, plus cots can be provided in three of the bedrooms.
The views and the sauna/steam barrel. It’s just heavenly.
The chalet is not in the very centre of Morzine, but it lays on in-resort transport so drop-offs to the lifts and pick-ups from apres-ski partying make everything effortless.
This luxury Morzine ski chalet is located in the Vallee de la Manche, just outside Morzine, in an elevated position which maximises the out-of-this-world mountain views.
The White Valley Lodge & Spa is just over an hour from Geneva airport. Transfers can be arranged, at extra cost.
