"★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - amazing week at Chalet Cristal

We stayed with 8 adults at Chalet Cristal and we all loved it! The living room is super spacious and has a fireplace, the kitchen has everything you need for people who like to cook, and the bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Additionally, we loved the hot tub outside. There is a bus stop nearby but we used the car since this was a bit faster and it was easy to park the car near the ski lift in Morillon. We really recommend this chalet!"

"A fantastic find - we loved it! *****

We have skied many times in France but this was our first time in Morillon. Less than 60 mins from Geneva but with access to the whole of the Grand Massif. As a group of 6 (3 couples) we wanted a self catering chalet with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and my son (25) had also insisted on a hot tub. That's not so easy to find! This chalet was just perfect for us - a very spacious lounge and dining area, extremely well equipped kitchen, a choice of 4 bedrooms/3 baths and a lovely hot tub which was kept at a lovely bubbling 40 degrees. It was very cosy and warm even without the log burner and lots of hot water for showers and baths after a long days skiing. The chalet is on the bus route but personally I think it works better here with a car. We could drive to a choice of three/four lifts within a few minutes and there are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. All in all a fantastic find!"

"Nous avons passé un très bon séjour au Chalet Cristal et bien profité du jaccusi aussi ! C'est un endroit très calme et magnifique, avec un beau jardin. Le poêle de chauffage est très appréciable aussi.

"Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay at your chalet. We loved it. The location was spot on and we frequented Lac Bleu which kept the kids amused. The chalet was lovely and the decor was tasteful and comfortable, with everything we needed.

"We had a fantastic time staying in Chalet Cristal this January. Everything from initial booking to the end of the stay was flawless thanks to the great team. The chalet itself is very spacious and does have a 'home away from home' feeling created by quality decor and finishes. It is fully equipped with all the stuff you might need during your stay including raclette machine and BBQ which we have put to good use throughout the week. The centre fireplace as well as the hot tub outside were real crowd pleasers and definitely contributed towards our fantastic time. The chalet is conveniently located just around the corner from the ski bus stop and only 10 minutes walk from the center of Morillon. There is also a great bakery close by for fresh croissants and tasty bread in the morning. Morillon village itself is really charming. All in all, very positive experience and I do recommend Chalet Cristal to everyone" 14 Sep 17

"We had a wonderful stay and hardly left the chalet in the evenings as it was so nice being by the fire in a nice environment. The chalet is so well organised with great boot and ski storage and the drying room facilities are fantastic as that has always been a problem in the past fighting for radiators. We would definitely stay again.

"It's perfect - a real home from home - everything you need is there and such a lovely place to just relax in both inside and out. Perfect setting - it's a lovely village, the chalet is in the heart of it (so much on your doorstep) but still a quiet place to chill in the garden and the hot tub. 'The best place, in the best place in the Alps'.
