The Perfect Day in Morzine, Les Gets & Avoriaz
A ski holiday with Morgan Jupe is not just like any other ski holiday. Of course, it entails the main principles you would expect… skiing, glorious views, the perfect alpine setting to spend time with friends or family and a few vin chauds at après. However, we are much more than that and pride ourselves on organising your stay with us down to an absolute tee, so you really don’t have to worry about a thing.
Whether you have children with you or you’re a group of adults, we want you to have a truly hassle-free and enjoyable week. In this blog we will help you to visualise the perfect day in Morzine, Les Gets & Avoriaz, right from the comfort of your settee at home…
Our Sales Director Jess, will be with you from the very beginning to help you choose the right chalet for your group, answer any questions and help organise all of the extra services that make up your ski holiday. This means your experience will be breezy from the booking stage, right through to the end of your stay.
It’s the first day of your holiday in the alps … Rise and shine! It’s a bluebird day outside and the scent of fresh croissants is floating deliciously through the chalet. Whichever chalet you’re staying in, breakfast will be ready when you are, to set you up for a big day ahead. Your chef or host will prepare something different each morning to tickle your taste buds and there will always be a continental spread to enjoy too.
Prior to your arrival, ski/snowboard hire will have already been organised with our fantastic partners at All Mountain Rental, who will deliver and fit everything once you’re all settled and comfortable in the chalet. Ski passes will also be waiting for you so that you can head straight out to the slopes nice and early on your first morning.
After breakfast, your host will be around to help kids with helmets and make sure everyone has everything they need for their day on the mountain. Then one of our trusty drivers will collect you in your private Landrover and take you to your desired destination for that morning. Depending on where you’re planning to ski, that could be at the bottom of the Pleney gondola, Super-Morzine bubble or Prodains cable car if you’re heading over to Avoriaz.
If you’re keen to make the most of your time on the slopes, our partners at New Generation or The Snow Institute offer lessons for anyone from complete beginners who are new to the slopes, to advanced skiers who would like to perfect their ski technique.
Is snowboarding more your thing? We can hook you up with one of the best instructors on the mountain through MINT Snowboarding. For those advanced skiers or snowboarders who would love nothing more than to take advantage of a perfect powder day then Peak Snow Sports is the one for you!
After you’ve enjoyed a morning of exploring the mountain, absorbing the stunning scenery that this beautiful part of the Alps has to offer, you must have worked up an appetite, right? Should you be on the Morzine-Les Gets side of the mountain, we recommend you enjoy a delicious lunch at Le Vaffieu where you can taste a unique menu, who offer a great range of dishes including our personal favourite… Parmentier de canard confit (essentially a shepherd’s pie made with confit duck)! If you’re on the Avoriaz side then head on over to Les Fontaines Blanches, which is iconic for its tasty food, impeccable service and fantastic location right in the heart of the ski-in village. We have lots of recommendations for great lunch spots on the mountain and your host will be happy to make reservations each day so you know you’ll always have a table.
Have you ever experienced a flexible driving service that’s available all day, every day of the week to help you move around resort with ultimate ease (and style!) We promise it’s not too good to be true. Hop back into one of our Land Rovers to return to your toasty chalet, where housekeeping will have been taken care of and a delicious afternoon tea prepared. Why not treat yourself to a massage from Mobile Mountain Massage or a beauty treatment from the lovely Kerri Mcauley. We can organise any of these services in advance and they’ll come and set up in the chalet so you don’t have to move a muscle!
If massages or beauty treatments aren’t quite your thing then Mountain Rehab offer pilates, yoga and other daily classes at their studio in the centre of town. They also specialise in physio, so if you would like a sports massage then just let us know!
As the afternoon ends and the evening rolls in, be sure to have a dip in the hot tub or relax in the sauna before our chef brings out your evening canapés. Cosy up on the sofa by the roaring fire with a well-deserved G&T or a beer, before being treated to a three-course meal paired with wines from our extensive selection.
As food and wine is very much the focus of a Morgan Jupe catered chalet holiday in Morzine, we go that extra mile to get it just right. We place as much emphasis on the quality of our wines as we do on the rest of our package and are proud to say that we offer the best inclusive wine list of any catered chalet.
Each day of your ski holiday can be customised to you and your party. It’s not only relaxing treatments and ski lessons that we can organise for you in advance, but a variety of other activities which can be enjoyed on or off the snow.
Turn this dream into a reality! We understand you may be hesitant to make a new booking for Summer 2020 or Winter 2020/21 given the current circumstances and we certainly don’t blame you. That’s why we’ve created a new set of temporary booking terms, which offer great flexibility and provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
