Welcome to our very own boutique catered chalet located in the beautiful Valley de la Manche in Morzine.

Recently officially awarded a 5 star rating by the resort of Morzine, we can guarantee this is a chalet with a serious dose of the “wow” factor.
Chalet Foret D’ Argent is a very spacious chalet with a contemporary design by the prestigious local architect Hervé Marullaz, who designed the chalet to maximise its location being both within the forest and close to the River Dranse.
This 5 bedroomed chalet is a stunning stylish retreat. Its interior is designed over 6 floor levels and it has a wonderful large glass roof as its stunning centre piece, it feels like you are in a relaxing hideout with a sprinkling of classic contemporary chalet chic. What makes this detached chalet truly special though is the sound of the river heard flowing throughout every room in the chalet when you open the windows to look onto the forest and mountains.
Chalet Foret D’Argent lets you escape into its tranquil surroundings so you can retreat and chill or explore everything the vibrant town of Morzine can offer you. For skiing, we are located only a 2 minute drive in our shuttle service or you walk to the Nyon cable car in only 5 minutes.

All bedrooms are have big luxury en-suite bathrooms complete with rainforest showers and luxury bathroom products. The chalet has several entertaining areas to keep everyone happy. As you enter Chalet Foret D’Argent you are greeted with the focal point which is its huge glass atrium running though the centre of the chalet drawing light into the spaces across different levels and combined with the floor to ceiling windows it creates a balanced, calming feel where the outside is drawn in.
Leading from the glass atrium, the sheer size of the living and dining areas comes into view. The open plan lounge is centred around a feature fireplace and surrounded by big comfortable sofas. This opens up into another level which has the huge open kitchen and dining room with large oak dining table which looks out over the large balcony with beautiful views of the forest and mountains.

Morzine is part of the enormous Les Portes du Soleil, one of the largest linked ski areas in the world. It consists of 14 resorts and spreads from Lake Geneva in Switzerland through to Mont Blanc in France. The resort is one of the easiest to access being just 40 miles from Geneva Airport (although this can still equate to about 90 minutes transfer time) in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. It is a traditional family resort with skiing to suit every style, from first timers to powder hounds. Morzine is an attractive bustling town by day and night, the village has a host of activities with pretty pavement cafes, lively bars and a choice of restaurants.
Skiing in Morzine
In total it offers 650kms of high altitude slopes. With so much to choose from skiers of all ability levels are well catered for. Snowboarders can enjoy themselves too in the great selection of snow parks with half pipes and hand rails, located in many of the resorts of the area. The villages are well linked by road and by piste, enabling you to clock up as much or as little ski mileage as you like.
The ski area is a large but relatively gentle area with many easy greens, blues and reds plus a couple of blacks on the Nyon side. Once you have explored the three major areas of Pleney, Nyon and Les Chavannes you can try out the runs on the other side of Les Gets on Mont Chery.
The top resorts in the Portes du Soleil include Avoriaz, Chatel, Les Gets, and Morzine in France, and Champery in Switzerland. The resorts differ in style, with the likes of Avoriaz offering bold modern architecture and a traffic free centre whereas Morzine is a picturesque old style Savoyard town with pretty chalet style houses and lots of character.
In Morzine you can drink and dance the night away if you choose to as there is a wide variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. The relaxed atmosphere of Dixie's Bar is always a firm favourite amongst our guests, along with the Tibetan Cafe but the list goes on and on. There is an outdoor ice skating rink in the heart of the town, a bowling alley, shops and a weekly traditional market.
