La Grange de Chemex

La Grange de Chemex is an exceptional chalet in the Swiss Alps, dating from 1870, just below Morgins, with easy access to the Portes du Soleil and other resorts such as Villars, Verbier etc. It has just undergone a 7 year programme of meticulous renovation which has involved a complete rebuild using original materials and modern bathroom suites and a state of the art open plan kitchen. We are 10 minutes away from Morgins village centre (one of the prettiest chocolate box Swiss resorts!). It has the advantage of a direct, 75 minute, train service to GVA, via a connection with the mountain railway which passes nearby and also takes you to the cable car station at Champery.

We are passionate skiers, snow-shoers and mountain walkers and chose this location for its convenience to Geneva Airport and its stunning alpine views. The chalet is unusually bright for a historic building and we worked extensively with Patrimony Suisse during the planning phase to ensure that we protected the historic fabric, whilst bringing it up to modern luxury standards. Cancellation policy - full refund if cancelled 2 months ahead, pro rata thereafter.

We will do everything we can to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. We will be happy (on request) to guide you down our favourite pistes and end up in our favourite tucked away restaurants. If you want to snow-shoe or cross country ski it will be our pleasure to arrange trips out. 

Please just call to arrange your bespoke holiday. We are able to be very flexible on arrival dates to maximise your time on the snow.  We are happy to take small groups, minimum 2 persons and will always aim to give you sole occupancy.


We have 5 double bedrooms with balconies and ensuite luxury bathroom or luxury ensuite shower room, including a large upstairs bedroom with a double and a single bed, this bedroom has use of the shower room at the bottom of its staircase.

The main chalet has an immense open-plan living space with a central fireplace, which is built as a mini-chalet with a slate roof!

The professional kitchen has a state of the art central island with range cooker, induction wok and Tepan hob.

The chalet is a fully equipped home from home with a large DVD collection and free WiFi. It is extremely comfortable and very stylish, on a par with the best Swiss properties found in Verbier and similar to luxury Lodges in Colorado.

Fantastic Half Term Week Feb 2015

"We holidayed at Chalet La Grange de Chemex during the Feb 2015 half term in a group of 9 (4 adults, 5 teenagers). Richard, Mary, Tom (age 3) and Archie the dog made us all feel very welcome in their beautiful home and were the perfect hosts. The chalet is spacious and beautifully appointed and the food, all prepared by Richard and Mary, was of an extremely high quality and plentiful. Their knowledge about the area was very useful: they've found the perfect balance between offering practical and helpful advice when requested but not being at all intrusive or prescriptive which we have found at some catered chalets in the past. It felt like staying with friends that we'd known for years even though this was the first time we'd met. We very much enjoyed our evenings together and the impromptu wine tastings!

The location in the heart of the Portes Du Soleil ski area gives a vast choice of skiing in both Switzerland and France. The main base of Morgins is only 15 minutes up the road by car but most of the other Portes Du Soleil resorts are less than 45 minutes away. In 2015 half term, as predicted by Richard, the Swiss side was the best option for steering clear of the crowds. On certain days we even had the odd run to ourselves! All in all, a fantastic week's skiing, with great company and excellent food."

A wonderful ski week in January.

"A warm family welcome from Richard and Mary, Tom aged 3 and Archie the Labrador in their beautifully restored chalet with many interesting features and fantastic views. Delicious meals preceded by a kir and imaginative amusebouches round the fire.
Snow fell every day, 4 feet in 4 days which made the narrow access road difficult in these extreme conditions. Richard kindly helped us out one day with his 4 wheel drive, when our winter tyres couldn't cope. However it gave us fantastic snow conditions on the slopes despite variable visibility. The Portes Du Soleil is a huge well connected ski area and this is a good base to access several points to it. There is also an hourly cog railway to Champery close by.

Fantastic summer family holiday

"The Chalet is beautiful with many original features and the views across the valley are spectacular. Richard and Mary really know how to look after you and the food was just devine. They are both very knowledgable about the local area and keen to ensure you get the best out of your stay. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious with numerous to choose from. As a family with children aged 9 and 7 we found that there was more than enough to do - the Portes du Soleil multi-pass was an added bonus too!" tomstapleton 05 Sep 14

Fantastic early-season week!

"Just returned from a week half-board at La Grange with hosts Richard and Mary. I could not have been more impressed - stunning location and the chalet quality just as advertised (exceptional). They are clearly very accomplished cooks and manage the whole guest exeperience with a quiet ease and efficiency. I skied with them both in Morgins and Les Crosets and heard the fascinating story of the Chalet's development while in awe of ther scenery and getting my ski legs back. Highly recommended if you want a quality break in a family-friendly, stunning chalet with a variety of resorts nearby." JonathanApps 27 Dec 12
