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.

The chalet lies approximately 500 metres from the base of the Prodains Express cable car, a very short, on-demand, Ski 2 minibus ride. Our driver will assist you with your skis and drop you right at the bottom of this lift each morning. Alternatively an 8 minute minibus ride will take you to Morzine and the lifts over to Les Gets.
For those who know the area well, the chalet is on the road that runs between Morzine village and the hamlet of Prodain, along which there are a number of catered chalets. View a PDF Map that shows its exact location.
The Prodains Express cable car provides all round access to Avoriaz from the Morzine area and runs from the small hamlet of Les Prodains (just a couple of hundred metres from the chalet) up to the resort of Avoriaz. The lift is open for skiers daily from 0845 and closes at 1715 hours (7 days a week).
Parallel skiers can ski back to the chalet door via a small track which comes off the blue Crot piste which winds its way down from the top station of the Prodain Express. Alternatively, wherever you are in Les Gets / Avoriaz ./ Morzine, you can make use of our minibus service to get you back to the chalet!
