Chalet FAQs

Often we receive very similar questions from guests regarding what the chalet, Morzine and the PDS have to offer. On this page we hope that we can answer some of these queries.

Do you supply bedding and linen?
Yes, we do. The chalet provides duvets, pillows, sheets and blankets for every bed. We also provide one bath towel and one hand towel per guest. The bedding is all laundered before each stay and the beds are all made ready for your arrival. We ask that you try and use the bedding and towels for the full week as we have limited spares.

Do we provide transfers to/from the airport?
No. We do not personally arrange transfers to or from the airport. Most of our guests that choose to fly arrive into Geneva which is just over 1hrs drive from Morzine. There are a large number of companies offering transfer services in either private or shared minibuses. The best place to find a transfer is on the Morznet site. If you are still struggling then get in touch and we can point you in the right direction.

Why do you changeover on Sunday?
This is something that we are asked quite often. At Chalet Minouchet we operate Sunday to Sunday in the Winter season. This is for a few reasons that we hope benefit our guests. Most of Morzine, including the large tour operators, changeover on Saturdays. The autoroutes and airports tend to be very busy as a result. Our guests will generally travel on a Sunday which tends to be a cheaper and much quieter affair. The other major benefit is that while most of the resort is leaving or arriving our guests can enjoy a much quieter day on the slopes.

Isn’t Morzine a bit low?
At first glance you would assume that it is. Morzine sits at around 1000m and although this is low compared to many other resorts Morzine more than holds it’s own. Regardless of the state of the snow in the town the PDS staff do a fantastic job of keeping the main return pistes into the town open for the duration of the season. Morzine is also linked to the vast Portes du Soleil ski area with it’s highest point at 2,400 metres so you will never be short of somewhere to ski no matter when in the season. In summer, the height of Morzine is actually a bonus as you have a great descent back down to the town.
