The Retreat

A lovingly restored 19th century Savoyard farmhouse sleeping up to 19, The Retreat luxury chalet combines rustic charm, modern style and state-of-the-art facilities.

Ideal for groups of friends and also an ideal family ski chalet for those with children, The Retreat luxury chalet is the perfect place to get away to for a winter ski holiday or a summer break.

“The Retreat was just perfect and is the best luxury ski accommodation we have stayed in, and we have stayed in many I can assure you….”

The Retreat luxury chalet has been styled with a mix of traditional workmanship, contemporary design and original features, such as old wooden beams and stone walls. The marriage of old and new creates the perfect character chalet with a modern feel. The chalet has been designed to create a cosy, convenient and stylish “home from home” in this luxury Alpine chalet.

The Retreat was created by Beth and Graham Smith. After 5 years of hard work on a derelict 300-year-old Savoyard farmhouse, The Retreat luxury chalet in Morzine came to life. Since then, we have holidayed there every year, both for winter ski holidays and for summer mountain bike holidays. Why? For us, there is nowhere like it. It gives our holiday the perfect mix of rural and town life and was designed to encompass all the things that make our stays feel luxurious and special.

A huge amount of love and passion went in to creating The Retreat luxury chalet, Morzine. We hope you can feel some of that when you stay there. The Retreat luxury chalet is located in Morzine, Portes du Soleil, one of the most easily accessed regions in the Alps. At just one hour’s drive from Geneva Airport, getting away for a luxury holiday in the French Alps couldn’t be easier!

Set in a beautiful rural hamlet, just 4 minutes from picturesque Morzine, The Retreat is a convenient one-hour drive from Geneva airport.

In the winter, The Retreat’s enviable location provides easy access to Ardent, the most convenient access point into the heart of the best skiing in the area.


In a beautiful rural hamlet, surrounded by traditional Alpine chalets and farmhouses and with a mountain river flowing past the end of the garden, The Retreat luxury chalet is just minutes from the traditional Alpine village of Morzine.

“The Portes du Soleil continues to be a favourite ski area of ours, there is no doubt that we could not have been better situated, in a beautiful luxury ski chalet, with such easy access to the lift at Ardent.”

Built by local craftsmen with traditional materials and finished with modern interiors, there’s nothing not to like about this extremely stylish chalet.
