Chalet Jordan

Activities for the non-skier part 2: shopping for your chalet holiday

Chalet Jordan is a self-catered chalet, and therefore you might be wondering about how you go about catering for yourself and your family when you are staying there.   Further down the mountain side on which the village of Essert La Pierre is situated is a large branch of Carrefour, which has a butcher, delicatessen, and lots of lovely French food and wine available to purchase.  You will need to pop in your car for 3 minutes to get there but it is so tucked away from the village that you would not have any idea it was there!  The shop’s opening hours do vary according to the season, but may be shut over lunch or on Sundays at certain times of the year, so it is worth checking on their website here.  There is lots of parking, and handy parent and child spaces in front of the main doors.

In the non-snowy months, you can walk from the chalet to nearby village St Jean D’Aulps, which has a Carrefour Express for essentials, and a fantastic bread and cake shop, selling mouthwatering patisseries.  In the colder months, St Jean D’Aulps is a few minutes drive from the chalet.

Morzine has a main branch of Carrefour in the centre of the town, plus a small supermarket.  It also has a fantastic array of independent shops, such as La Bonbonniere on the Rue de La Plagne, for cakes and bread, and many other lovely establishments.  It is worth setting aside a few hours of your holiday for a wander round the town to make the most of what is on offer.
