Chalet Tavernier, Morzine

Our second winter in this great chalet!

Chalet Tavernier is located in Les Prodains area of Morzine / Avoriaz, just a couple of minutes by Ski 2 minibus (available exclusively, free and on-demand to this chalet) from the base of the Prodains Express cable car, which in turn will whisk you straight up to Avoriaz, in the heart of the Portes du Soleil. Under normal snow conditions, you can ski back to the chalet via an easy off-piste track (recommended for experienced skiers) that comes from a blue run. Morzine village is just a short (8 minute) minibus transfer away.

Set in its own grounds and with sweeping views down the valley from the open-plan lounge and dining room, this traditional, detached chalet is very comfortably furnished and has its own outdoor hot-tub for the use of its guests.

    We had a fantastic 4 nights at Chalet Tavernier with friends, and loved every minute of it. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm with very comfy beds. The staff are super-friendly and the food was fantastic. Coming back from skiing each day to a freshly baked cake, then tucking into a bottle of bubbly in the hot-tub was a particular highlight! We’ll definitely consider booking again.

    We travelled with friends and had a wonderful 4 night stay at Chalet Tavernier. I can honestly say it was the most stress free & enjoyable skiing holiday we have experienced. From the airport pick up, to the pre-arranged ski pass & ski hire, the transfers to and from the different ski areas, or out for drinks – everything worked perfectly and was a real treat. The chalet is very comfortable – large rooms, great views, ensuite bathrooms and lots of space. All the meals were excellent – Ella is a fine cook – and the wine and fizz that is included is surprisingly good. However, the real treat was the hot tub overlooking the mountain at the end of each day – an amazing way to relax with a glass of bubbles and re-live each brilliant day of skiing. Thanks Ski2 & all your team for a great holiday.

    Really enjoyed our stay at Chalet Tavernier. Ellie, Ela, Scott and Sergio really looked after us! Breakfast, afternoon tea and supper were all delicious. Scott and Sergio were great to talk to on our transfers and trips to town. Also receiving a bottle of bubbly in the arrival transfer was an added surprise! Looking forward to staying again next year!

    Just spent a relaxing weekend at chalet Tavernier with friends from England. The transfers from and to the airport were easy, with the drivers being super flexible. The chalet is lovely and warm and there is a large log fire to add to the cosiness. The chalet hostesses Ella and Ellie were super helpful, and they made sure we were well fed and watered. Scott drove us the short distance to the Prodains lift, and picked us up at the end of the day. The text pick up service is great as we were often in a different location from where he had dropped us off, but it was never a problem. The hot tub was welcome after skiing, it was difficult to get the children out of it!

    My son and I had an excellent short break at this chalet.
    This was a first holiday with Ski2 and we were very impressed by the service which started with the efficient greeting and transfer from Geneva which meant we were on the slopes by lunchtime.
    The chalet is in a quiet position but it is excellent for quick access to the Prodains Express lift courtesy of our driver Scott who was very helpful collecting us on time each morning and picking us up when we requested.
    Ellie and Ella looked after us in the Chalet which is difficult to fault. Everything needed was available, rooms are a good size, food and wine was of a very good standard, hot tub and great views.
    Highly recommended.

    I have travelled with Ski2 on many occasions but this was the first time to the Port du Soleil area – and it was an excellent choice. We stayed four nights and had a good four and a half days skiing. A very comfortable chalet, with good food and very welcoming hosts. The location is great and the dedicated mini-bus enables quick access up to Avoriaz and beyond, or down to the Morzine/Les Gets area. Scott and Sergio (the mini-bus drivers) were always very helpful, and the system of messaging when we needed a lift at the end of the day worked very well. We skied back to the chalet on one occasion, but it was easier to get a lift following an après ski beer! Highly recommended.

    The chalet was spacious and very clean and comfortable, with lovely views. The chalet girls and transfer drivers were all extremely pleasant, friendly and very helpful with nothing being too much trouble. I really enjoyed the extra bonus of the outside hot tub following a hard day on the slopes and the pre-dinner canapes and Prosecco were a lovely unexpected touch. I would not hesitate to recommend this chalet to anyone and would definitely come back here if I were to visit the same region again.

    We, (two adults, two children), once again had a superb stay with Ski2. We were originally aiming to stay in Les Gets, but were offered two rooms in their newly adopted Chalet Tavernier, in the small village of Prodains instead. This turned out to be a great success for us. Even though were were only staying 3 nights, the convenience of the chalet’s location near to the Prodains gondola, the chalet’s minibus service and the Ski2 team flexibility meant we were only minutes away from being whisked up to the slopes of Avoriaz and in the end we managed squeeze in 4 good days of skiing.

    The chalet itself was very comfortable, bedrooms and living space well furnished and well appointed. After a trouble free, short transfer from Geneva in a Ski2 minibus, we received a warm welcome from the hosting team who continued to provide for our every need during our stay and helped create a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The food was of great quality, variety and quantity, the children particularly enjoyed Ella’s meals she made specially for them!

    Chalet Tavernier is in a peaceful and picturesque location with great views, the chalet is set in a snowy meadow overlooking the Morzine valley and surrounded by rocky cliffs, which can particularly be enjoyed sitting in the chalet’s hot tub.

    Having the chalet minibus was a very welcome, if not essential service. With Scott the driver on call at key times, it meant we saved a lot of time and effort getting the family to and from the Prodains lift, picking up our hire equipment, and being dropped and collected in Morzine when we fancied a visit to the town.

    Ski2 have done a great job with this chalet to bring the facilities and services up to a very high standard, especially when compared to previous operators’ reviews. This is a great reflection not just on the hard work of the local team but also Ski2 who clearly put a lot of effort into creating high quality, memorable holidays.

    My partner and I stayed at Chalet Tavernier for Christmas week and what a fantastic time we had! Ski2 collected us from Geneva in a private transfer (easy to find in the airport wearing their branded jackets!) and gave us a welcome pack with bubbly and crackers for the journey. Super thoughtful touches. We were so comfy in the car, we both had a nap!
    The chalet is situated with 360 degrees of views of the mountains, it was unbelievably peacefully and was the biggest chalet I’ve stayed in (having skied for over 15 years). The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage. Some even have a private balcony. We stayed in Room 5 and the shower was powerful and nice and hot.
    The chalet was always really warm too, they have a real fire roaring in the lounge with plenty of space to sit and enjoy canapes, drinks and games before dinner. The heated boot room area and the outdoor hot tub was a real bonus too.
    We were looked after by Ella and Ellie, who provided excellent hospitality all week. We ate amazing food including homemade cakes for afternoon tea and a full Turkey dinner on Christmas day! They went as far as having Christmas crackers, a decorated tree and a selection of traditional desserts to make us feel totally at home.
    Scott, Sergio and Amanda drove us around and picked us up between the chalet and town, super easy to communicate by dropping them a text when we were ready.
    The skiing is fantastic, Ski2 have extensive knowledge of the area and dropped us off at the best lift for the best skiing that day. We went towards Avoriaz and ended our days in Morzine. Plenty of blue and red runs and Ski2 even took us to the ski hire shop and returned our skis for us once we left too. We didn’t need to worry about ski passes either, they sorted them for us.
    Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time, it was absolutely fantastic and can’t wait to return in the future!
    Thank you, guys!

    We had a fantastic time staying in Morzine with Ski2. Everything was well thought through and made for a luxury skiing experience- from the bubbly in the private airport transfer, to the free taxi service around resort to the service throughout the week. We were most blown away by the incredible food and service from the host and Chef, Ellie and Ella. They made us feel instantly at home, kept us topped up with food and wine all week and were professional throughout. Scot and Sergio, our drivers were also extremely professional, with Scot taking us around the village to show us the best spots on our first trip into town. The hot tub is also a fantastic addition to soothe tired muscles after a long day skiing.

    We could not recommend this chalet enough!
