Morzine in Winter


Morzine is a picturesque town in the Northern Alps just an hour from Geneva. In the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area, superb links to the high “snow sure” Avoriaz and links to Switzerland and Les Gets it is the perfect destination for skiing and mountain holidays.  Only an hour from Geneva, flights are plentiful and the transfer is short.  It is no surprise it is one of the most popular resorts in France.

With luxury chalet and apartments in the heart of Morzine, exploring this beautiful town and accessing its world class skiing could not be easier.

The Portes du Soleil Ski Area

The Portes du Soleil is a huge ski area with 650km of pistes spanning across France and Switzerland.  There are 12 resorts in total, the main ones being Morzine, Chatel, Les Gets and Champery.  The area boasts 197 lifts serving 280 pistes with a good breadth of beginner, intermediate and expert pistes.  Some of our most famous routes include the Swiss Wall and the ‘Portes du Soleil circuit’.

Morzine

The Village

Morzine is an historic village with chocolate box chalets and surrounded by tree lined mountains.  Being a large village there is an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants.  Our large swimming complex is excellent as is our local ice hockey team the Pionniers.

The range of restaurants offer everything from Michelin starred gastronomy to cheap and cheerful burger places. There are loads of family restaurants offering traditional Savoyarde fare and wider menus.  The local restaurateurs are keen to keep up with modern tastes so you will find that guests with dietary requirements are welcomed and well catered for.  We regularly review village and mountain restaurants in our blog.

Non Skiing Activities

The non skiers of your party will find plenty to do with the swimming complex, indoor and outdoor ice rink, Wednesday market, spa facilities and treatments, boutiques and gift shops, cheese tasting, hiking and show shoeing, dog sledding, paragliding and tobogganing.

All the bubble lifts from the village centre can be accessed by pedestrians and there are accessible mountain restaurants so both skiers and non skiers can meet up for lunch on the hill rather than coming down into the village.
