Wow wow wow amazing chalet. Fabulous food, accommodation and service. Kim Arron and Murray great hosts. Hidden gem.
Wow!!! We have just returned home from a fabulous week at the Chalet Belle Cherry. Kim and Murray are fantastic hosts and we had the most amazing chef, Arron, who produced the most delicious 3 course meals every night.
The chalet itself is very special. Luxurious beds, comfy living room and a wonderful hot tub overlooking the mountains (which was used extensively during our stay!)
The Chalet Belle Cherry exceeds all possible expectations! We definitely would like to return next year!!
It's always a sad week being back at work following a holiday, but this week has been particularly sour since returning from my stay Chalet Belle Chery last week.
Of course like any sensible traveller does, before heading to Belle Chery I looked at pictures, read reviews, even did the online tour of the chalet from their website, all of which are pretty impressive. But upon arrival it was immediately apparent that everything I had seen or read did not do the chalet justice.
It is hands down the best chalet I have ever stayed in. The beds are huge and incredibly comfortable, the showers like a tropical downpour, the underfloor heating, cinema room and hot tub are all nice little touches too, but the best thing for me, by far, is the food.
The in house chef, Aaron, set the bar very high with an incredibly delicious herb crusted lamb dish on the first night, but each night seemed to be just as good if not better than the previous. My waistline was not happy, but every other part of my body was delighted!
I love the skiing in Les Portes du Soleil and will definitely be back many more times. If available I will stay at Chalet Belle Chery every time I come back.
So this is my second stay at Chalet Belle Chery and I'm delighted to say that once again they've knocked it out of the ballpark. The food this year was phenomenal with great variety and stand-out dishes every night. In particular the two duck main courses were incredible and couldn't believe how good the home made macarons were on the final night!
The chalet itself remains one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. The original wooden beams and ceilings from the cow barn the building was converted from make it feel incredibly authentic and are genuinely quite spectacular.
That said, no expense has been spared when it comes to technology and luxury. The Sonos sound system throughout the chalet, large outdoor hot-tub, giant TV and cinema room, pool table and even adjustable mood lighting make it a wonderful place to stay and the perfect home away from home. It's also important to note that the size and separate mezzanine floors means that even when the chalet is full, you never feel like it's over crowded and everyone has plenty of space.
I also think it's important to acknowledge how good the team is at the chalet and how much they add to the enjoyment of the week. Kim and Murray are lovely people and wonderful hosts. It never felt like anything you needed was too much trouble and at the same time they also kept us entertained with Murray's anecdotes of the different ways he's nearly got himself killed through his pursuit of extreme sports over the years! Aaron's cooking was spectacular and fingers crossed he's still here next year as I need more of his carrot cake in my life!
Another great advantage is the fact that they drive you to the lifts every morning and that you can choose where your starting point is so you get to explore the whole area and go to where the best snow is. It also means you never find yourself carrying skis long distances or walking too far in uncomfortable boots!
Overall I couldn't recommend this chalet enough and look forward to coming back next year.
Just returned from a two-week stay at Chalet Belle Chery in Morzine. We were a group of 12 family members, of three generations ranging in age from 13 to 77! The chalet was as superb as it looks on Prestige Mountain Chalet's website and seeing it bathed in sunshine instead of snow was awesome! The panoramic views as you step out on the balcony and terrace at any time of the day were spectacular! The interior of the chalet is incredibly well thought out and suited each family member, whether they wanted company or just some time out. The pool table and hot tub added to the experience and were both well used! The chalet hosts, Sian and Tom looked after us so well and Laura, our chef, provided the most amazing three course meals most evenings, ably assisted by Christina! They felt like part of the family by the time we left! What a treat not to have to cook after a hard day white water rafting or paragliding or mountain biking or swimming across lakes ..... There is so much to do in Morzine and surrounding areas in the summer, if you enjoy the great outdoors! Hiking up the nearby ski pistes was an incredible experience as the views were outstanding.
A rental car is a must unless you simply want to hike or relax at the chalet, both of which are appealing! The Lake at Montriond is well worth a visit as is the popular manmade ski resort of Avoriaz, where the 60s architecture is out of this world and can be clearly seen in the distance from the chalet! Visiting the shores of Lake Geneva is totally recommended, particularly the sweet medieval town of Yvoire and also the municipal beach at Excenevex, where you can do all sorts of water sports. Huge highlight of the holiday was watching the Tour de France cycle past on their penultimate leg of the Tour, up in the mountains behind Morzine, albeit in torrential rain which sort of added to the experience! Generally we had gorgeous weather during the two weeks and couldn't stop taking photos as everywhere around is so photogenic! This holiday has to be one of the best family holidays we've ever had - something for everyone and staying in the most beautiful timber-framed holiday pad! Can't wait to return, maybe in the winter to experience fun in the snow!
