Welcome to Morzine
Morzine is a thriving Alpine village set deep in the Chablais mountain range between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, by the France-Switzerland border. It has grown over the years to become a charming ski resort in winter and a popular biking destination in summer. It's roots as an old French farming and mining town are apparent in the village today, where local produce is available at the weekly market, and many of the chalets sport local slate roofs.
Morzine is just over an hour's drive from Geneva Airport and is located the middle of one of the biggest ski areas in the world - the Portes du Soleil ski domain. Morzine's ski area is filled with cruisy, tree-lined blue and red runs, and it's also linked directly to the ski resorts of Avoriaz and Les Gets. Although the village is situated at a relatively low 900 metres, it's network of lifts reaches the panoramic Chamossière at 1800 metres, and Avoriaz, at 2100 metres. You may not be able to ski back to your accommodation at the end of the day, but the extensive lift system and free shuttle services ensure you'll find it easy to get back to your accommodation whatever the snow cover.
The low level traditional chalet-style buildings in Morzine help preserve the town's character and charm. It has the greatest selection of holiday rental chalets in the area, most of which are independently run. This style of accommodation, along with the attractive skiing provides the quintessential ski holiday experience, making Morzine a firm favourite with families and groups of friends. In the last few years, Morzine has invested in new lifts and sports facilities. New bars, luxury catered chalets and high quality restaurants have also begun to emerge, allowing Morzine to compete favourably with many of the big-name resorts in the Alps. With access to 426km of pistes, great quality accommodation and buzzy nightlife, Morzine is one of our favourite ski resorts.
