The Old Macaroni, as well as being a marvellously named chalet is a simply beautiful property. This luxury catered ski chalet in Morzine, with its elevated setting affording expensive views, is new for the 2019/20 winter ski season. It has been immaculately restored from its traditional farmhouse heritage to create one of the finest Alpine homes in the Portes du Soleil ski area.
The chalet is arranged over four floors and can accommodate up to 14-18 people, though is best suited for up to 14 people or several families. The property is full of fantastic features including hidden rooms, individually designed bathrooms, a wonderful cinema, large outdoor deck with hot tub and a glass fronted barrel sauna with some of the finest views over Morzine.
The entrance to the chalet has beautiful traditional features from the original farmhouse building and a large boot room allows ample practical space for your outdoor clothes, skis and boots. The entrance level of the chalet has been transformed into a beautiful open dining, kitchen and entertaining space along with a bedroom and a spa treatment room which can be converted into a 5th double bedroom.
The upper level of the chalet comprises the main living area as well as three further double bedrooms. Floor to ceiling glazed bi-folding doors open one entire side of the lounge to take in the most spectacular view of Morzine, above which The Old Macaroni is perched on the hillside. The main living room and lounge overlook the church and town hall and takes in the view of the whole valley as well as the ski slopes opposite.
There is plenty of space for relaxing and the lounge also features a grand piano and a beautiful wood burning stove. The bi-folding doors open up on to a balcony that wraps around the chalet and offers the perfect spot from which to watch the weekly Pleney fireworks display and torch light decent. For those who need to work a secret doorway leads through to a spacious office where you can work undisturbed.
Upstairs a mezzanine level has been designed to offer an enchanting children’s room but cleverly accommodates adults as well. Whilst primarily built with children in mind, the “Harry Potter” room has four beautiful built in full-size double beds, each with their own curtains for privacy. The mezzanine is open and allows adults to keep an eye on children as they play upstairs, watch TV or enjoy reading any of the many books from the bookcase.
Further entertaining space can be found in the lower level of the chalet where you will find the cinema. The state of the art, integrated surround sound and screen evoke the real cinema feel and when the lights go down it genuinely feels like you are at the movies. Huge custom-made bean bags provide extra seating and a sumptuous option from which to sit and enjoy the latest blockbuster.
The centre of Morzine, along with the Pleney, Super-Morzine and Prodains ski lifts are all easily accessible with the 24 hour in-resort chauffeur service. There is a large parking area for those driving to the chalet and a garage that can be accessed for cars and also for bike storage in the summer months.
