One of Morzine’s best known chalet companies, Rude Chalets are relaunching this season with the welcome return of co-founder Chris Lavender. After taking a year off with his family, the self-appointed Mayor of Rudeville is throwing himself back into the fold with a series of new projects to run alongside the iconic Rude Chalets.
Following a year of renovations, the legendary Le Paradis bar and club will be bringing a renewed warmth to Morzine under its new Tiki guise – promising lots of fun, cocktails, and live music & comedy nights throughout the season. Le Paradis – which has been the scene of many a drunken pole dancing injury – is handily located underneath the new French American Bar and Grill ‘La Coupe’ and the whole building ALSO houses the Rude Lodge, with affordable room-only accommodation from £35pppn. For those whose day is not complete without a few refreshments, Apres beers will now be firmly centred around the relaunched La Kinkerne Hotel at the bottom of the Prodain lift in Morzine, complete with nightly live music.
Rude Chalets will still focus on their traditional chalet accommodation and there will be a series of custom ‘mini-shred’ weeks during the Easter Holidays that focuses on getting young snowboarders sliding in the right direction. In association with Burton Snowboards and Morzine’s Mint Snowboarding School, children from the ages of three can get kitted out in Burton’s ‘Riglet’ gear and hit the piste with fully qualified children’s instructors for a few hours while parents can do their own thing. Adult rental gear is also available throughout the year from Rude, in conjunction with Burton Snowboards, making your week away an ideal time to try before you buy.
