Stayed as a group of 9 guys for 4 days - hostess was very helpful and a great cook. Good food, big portions, friendly atmosphere, perfect location. Great trip, thanks!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Chalet Le Benon. The location is excellent, we even managed to ski back to the chalet in the evening from Pleney, and it's a very short walk to both Pleney and Super Morzine. This also means it's in very close walking distance to all the bars and restaurants in Morzine village.
The Chalet itself is a bit basic, but has everything you need, and is exceptionally clean. The upstairs rooms are a little small with only one shared bathroom, but the middle and lower floor bedrooms have en-suites and are an excellent size. Other than that there was plenty of space and the living area is huge. The garage is useful to store ski's and hang your ski gear in, so you don't need to bring it all up to the rooms. It all feels very "homely", which is nice, and there is plenty of parking outside as the chalet sits in its own grounds and garden.
However, without a doubt, the highlight of the trip was our chalet host Elselien, who was absolutely wonderful! She was incredibly friendly, and anxious to please. Not only did she email me before our visit to check if we'd like ski passes or ski hire in advance and to check dietary requirements, but during our stay there was nothing she wouldn't do to help. On top of all that, her cooking was most excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed all the food from breakfast to dinner (and timings were flexible so we could choose). Having free wine and beer throughout the stay is a great touch and is so much nicer than having to pay, or use an honesty bar, as you do in most other chalets.
I've been organising these ski trips from our group for 20 years and I can honestly say that Wens Chalets have been the best overall experience we've ever had. We've done 2 different Wens chalet's in the last 2 years, and hopefully we can use Wens chalets again in the future. Highly, highly recommended!
The chalet is fantastic, ski-in /out from/towards the area towards Les Gets if there is enough snow and otherwise 100m from the gondolas in that part, and also 200m from the lift to superMorzine / Avoriaz. The chalet staff was very relaxed. Our dietary requirements were easily taken into account, and where necessary there was always a separate meal for the children that was very much appreciated. The chalet itself is also very nice. Sufficiently spacious, large space to store and dry skis and snowboards and clothes, spacious bedrooms, sufficient bathrooms.
We had a fantastic week in chalet Le Benon in Morzine with two families from NL and US (11 persons and 2 children). Everything cooperated: the location, space, view, weather, and above all the hospitality and excellent care of our chalet host Elselien. We had 2 people with a difficult diet that she cared for fanatically all week. Because of her, we didn't have to worry about that at all. It was surprisingly good. The price quality is excellent. Highly recommended.
