Chalet Helene, Portes du Soleil, Haut-Savoie

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Le Biot, Haute-Savoie, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
This property is excellent value for money for family ski holidays near to Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets, Chatel, etc. as well as summer holidays, with loads of activities nearby. It has two double bedrooms by default (with a King Size bed and single bunk beds), sleeping 4 people, but there is an extra third double bedroom with a king size bed - so it could sleep 6 comfortably.

The weekly price depends on whether it is a low, medium, high or peak season week and whether 2 or 3 bedrooms are being booked. However, it is much cheaper than similar properties in Morzine (and probably bigger), but is only 20 min from the Ardent Free Parking area next to the main lift to link to the Portes du Soleil; or only 10 min from La Grande Terche - a local alternative for a quieter days skiing.

The property itself is on the ground floor of a converted fa...

As a family of five, including three teenagers, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Helene. There was a warm welcome and throughout the stay the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. There was plenty of space to dry the ski kit, and park the car....More

About the neighbourhood
The Haut-Savoie area is rich in culture, cuisine, produce and beauty. Chalet Helene is peaceful in a beautiful spot, ideal for families, but equally only a 20min drive from the centre of Morzine - so not far from the heart of the Portes du Soleil.

Staying in Gys in cosy Chalet Helene, with its wood-burning stove, and farmhouse atmosphere, can be a very pleasant and restful experience. However, if you are the active type, then you have access to all the French Alps has to offer.

How to get there
The easiest way to get to Chalet Helene is to fly to Geneva, pick-up your hire car (from under £200 for a week), and drive towards Evian-les-bains, turning right towards Morzine and Vallee D'Aulps when you get near to Thonon. Drive up the valley for about 20min and you will reach the turn off to Gys/Le Biot on the left, just after the turn for Baume. Geneva Airport to the house should take about an hour (60-75min) and once out of Geneva City, is a nice drive along the lake and up the valley.

The cheapest way to get to Chalet Helene is probably to drive the whole way (about 540 miles), which takes about 8-9 hours and has some spectacular scenery along the way, particular climbing over and through the mountains before you drop down a bit into Geneva (don't forget to allow for th...
