We would like to introduce you to our new luxury ski chalet in central Morzine. It is called The Grange and we are thrilled to be adding it to our list of catered chalets for winter season 2014/15. She is an absolute corker – situated smack bang in the middle of Morzine yet hidden from view down the small Chemin de la Coutettaz. The Grange is currently undergoing a full renovation, it’s why we are all in Morzine at the moment! Our team of builders, carpenters, joiners, plumbers and electricians are hard at work to ensure that this catered ski chalet will be ready for next winter – with a bit of time to spare hopefully!

The Grange – Our NEW Morzine Luxury Ski Chalet – The History

The Grange was built in 1832. It was one of the first properties to be built in Morzine and the owners were part of the small farming community that owned most of the land in Morzine and the surrounding areas. Morzine looked a little bit different in the early nineteenth century – lots of agricultural land and not many catered ski chalets! The Grange remained a typical farmhouse throughout the first half of the 20th century. It is likely that the animals stayed on the ground floor during the winter and the family on the top 2 floors. In the 1960s when Morzine and the Porte du Soleil began to expand as a ski area, The Grange was extended and the farm animals were removed for good. We can say with relative certainty that there won’t be any sheep staying on the ground floor during your stay!

The Grange – Our NEW Morzine Luxury Ski Chalet – The Location

We can’t quite believe our luck with the location of The Grange. The ski chalet is situated right in the middle of Morzine but also tucked away in the quiet old quarter of town. The Grange is located on the Chemin de la Coutettaz, probably the oldest road in Morzine with the pick of the most characterful architecture and chalets. The ski chalet is a 3 minute walk from both Le Pleney ski slopes and the Super Morzine cable car. The tourist office is just a 2 minute walk away, and the bars and restaurants of central Morzine are on The Grange’s doorstep. And whisper it quietly: the new high speed cable car from central Morzine to Avoriaz (that connects with the Prodains lift) will be less than a 1 minute walk from The Grange. This new super fast cable car will be completed in about 3 years and will make the journey from any ski chalet in Morzine to Avoriaz significantly quicker.

 

The Grange – Our NEW Morzine Luxury Ski Chalet – The Chalet

The Tasty Ski Company is currently renovating The Grange and we can’t wait to show you the finished product. We are drawing on our experience and will create a luxury ski chalet that we know works for our guests. The chalet will have a light, modern colour palate, but we will also be showing off as many of the original features as possible. There will be 5 ensuite bedrooms and the chalet will be able to sleep up to 13 people. We will accept exclusive occupancy bookings for 9 or more people. We will be packing this catered ski chalet full of nice little extras: heated boot racks, hot tub, english Sky TV, Movie room, iPod dock and WiFi throughout will all be part of this luxury ski chalet experience. We are confident The Grange will be our best ski chalet yet and we can’t wait to show it to you all!

The Grange – Our NEW Morzine Luxury Ski Chalet – The Service

It’s business as usual for The Tasty Ski Company for the service that we provide at The Grange. Guests at the ski chalet will have their own private chef along with a host to look after their every need during the week. The Grange is a fully catered chalet so your stay will include breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner (with wine!) six nights a week. Breakfast includes various continental options, plus eggs (poached, scrambled or fried), slow roast tomatoes (8 hours overnight), back bacon, and a breakfast special every day. Dinner is a 4-course meal, followed by tea, coffee and cheese board. The catered ski chalet benefits from the usual pre-arrival service that we offer all of our guests at The Tasty Ski Company – we are more than happy to organise items such as airport transfers, ski hire, lift passes and ski school for your group before you arrive.
