Going away with five under fives… all under one roof? My Osteopath thinks we are mad…but he has not been to this place. The Retreat is a heavy weight luxury chalet in Morzine, with what can only be described as a humongous living space. Believe me, in this place, the noise emanating from the smaller members of the group just doesn’t bother you. If you want to chill on the balcony (inhaling the amazing views) or hang out in the lounge then set the kids up in the cinema den down stares. The TV bar down stairs is ideal for armature performances, cinema viewings and general larking around – all in ear shot of the parents without disturbing your space or sense of P&Q. The rooms have been great – big comfy beds and Egyptian cotton sheets have made me feel at home. Four spacious rooms on the lower floor, two doubles on the main floor (with a lovely adjoining balcony) and the jacuzzi finished master suite at the top. Not forgetting a very special James Bond styled Mazo (a small self contained luxury apartment with stunning views over the mountains) located in the garden for the romantics in the group. The impressive power showers take the edge of the wine from the night before and the kitchen large enough for a proper communal experience (– but of course if you fancy someone else doing it for you this can be arranged!) All in all, the chalet is “mountain top luxury”, its trendy, its well equipped and its got more than enough space to relax and enjoy the mountains without tripping over your fellow house mates. The only downside we have found is that regardless of how much you love your home it always feels a tad small in comparison when you first arrive back.
