Chalet Benjamin

Recently renovated, Chalet Benjamin is a charming, spacious chalet in Morzine, a key access town for the 650km Portes du Soleil ski area. Sleeping upto 8, it is located  5 mins from ski lifts and slopes and also 5 mins by car or bus from the town centre, making it a fabulously convenient and affordable accommodation for keen skiers, be they families or independent groups, as the chalet is located on the route to the Prodains express lift into the centre of Avoriaz which takes just 4 mins. The free ski bus stops 50m from the chalet every 15 mins.

The open plan nature of the apartment makes it very spacious, allowing for 2 different seating areas - a soft relaxed area around a cosy, log burner and then in addition a separate dining area. The kitchen is also divided from the living area by a bar counter complete with bar stools - a chilled place to chat whist the cook gets to work on supper!

This room also has large floor to ceiling sliding doors onto a balcony giving views towards the town and Pleney slopes. The apartment occupies the whole top floor of the chalet, and hence benefits from double height aspect with exposed beams.


Modern, spacious kitchen with good appliances including gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, fondue sets, pierrade and raclette sets, ample crockery and cutlery. 

Large open plan living and dining room with full length sliding patio doors. The living area is focused around a large log fire with brown  leather sofas giving plenty of seating space. The dining table seats up to 10 comfortably. Wood for the fire is provided.

Two bedrooms have new oak flooring, and the master bedroom has an ensuite shower cabin and handbasin. The mezzanine is open and airy with 2 Velux windows and has ample room for 3/4 beds if the kids all want to sleep up here!

The chalet has a ground floor ski and boot room in the entrance hall. There is off street parking right next to the chalet, with the use of a garage if needed (which will fit two cars one behind the other). This is a very useful facility for mountain bikers in the summer. 

All towels and linen are included in the price and the chalet will be thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival. We ask all guests to leave the chalet in a clean and tidy state just as they found it. If you would like to bring your pet with you, please ask us for our special pet conditions before booking, as you will need to agree to them first.

"We enjoyed very much our stay at Chalet Benjamin. Rachel and Dovi are welcoming and lovely hosts. They has left us welcoming wine on the table. Rachel was very helpful and answered our questions quickly. The Chalet is comfortable, has a great big living room with cosy sofas and fireplace (the wood was prepared for us). The Chalet has a great Location to the Center of Morzine. Near the house there are two bus stops with free buses to Morzine Village (Line A). The Morzine is Beautiful location for winter holiday - skiing and snowboarding. We had a really great time at Chalet Benjamin and enjoyed the kindness of Rachel and Dovi to us. Thank you so much!" 21 Jan 20

"Spacious and comfortable with a really well designed kitchen area and a long dining table. Nice big woodburner and huge leather sofa. Easy bus ride to the Prodains lift (don’t panic if the first one’s full) and into Morzine. It’s about a 15-minute walk into town. There’s locker space in the building and a separate garage which can just fit an MPV (without roof box)." 21 Jan 20
