Morzine is a beautiful, traditional alpine town located in the heart of the Portes Du Soleil ski area in the French Alps. Situated midway between Mont Blanc and Geneva this charming resort benefits from a great snow record in the winter season and beautiful sunny days in the summer. With typical wooden alpine chalets, a host of bars and restaurants and a huge ski area, it’s easy to see why so many people fall in love with Morzine. Despite its growth from when tourism started in 1920 with Le Grand Hotel, Morzine has managed to maintain its charm from days when it existed as a traditional market village.
The resort has a fantastic snow history from December to April due to its location in the northern alps and proximity to Mont Blanc. Snow coverage is also great as many of the resorts lower slopes are pasture land so not much snow is needed before you’re off and away. Once the snow has melted the summer begins and Morzine has even more to offer. With the lifts running in the summer time the resort opens again offering some of the most famous mountain biking trails in the world. If that’s not for you then there’s road biking, walking, parapenting, climbing, horse riding, rafting, kayaking, devil karting, sunbathing by the pool and much much more.
With our comfortable home from home self-catering properties, you will have the perfect base from which to explore Morzine and beyond!
