Reviews and Comments:
- "Lovely chalet, very clean with good facilities. Fantastic views over Morzine and just a small walk into the Super Morzine lift (only five mins). I would definitely recommend it." - Customer Feedback
- "The chalet was perfect for our group of adults and young adults. The welcome pack and toiletries are a really nice touch to what is already a comfortable and welcoming chalet. Its position is fabulous, a 10 minute walk to town and the Super Morzine bubble or the free bus from (almost) outside the door to the Ardent lift, means a choice of routes up the mountain. The kitchen was very well equipped with enough dishes and pans to self cater properly for the whole party." - Customer Feedback
The town of Morzine nestles in the valley amongst rolling mountains, forests and alpine meadows. The town is made up of a pleasing mix of traditional decorative buildings, cleverly converted barns and new chalets in keeping with the Haute Savoie style. The bustling town centre is home to sports shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafés alongside the book shop, hardware store and bakeries that remind you the town is a working community as well as a tourist destination.
The town of Morzine is located to the east of Geneva, close to the French-Swiss border in the Haute Savoie region of the Rhone-Alpes. Geneva airport is just one hour and 15 minutes of driving from the town on the E25 motorway. The town is 1000m above sea level and surrounding ski resorts benefit from the micro-climate of Mont Blanc.
A vast array of restaurants are available in Morzine to suit all tastes and budgets. For special evenings enjoy up to eight courses of exquisite cuisine, or try one of the tasty and varied menus of fine French food, with hearty meats and fresh fish. There are several restaurants offering the traditional Savoie fare of fondue, raclette and tartiflette, or after a day in the mountains a plate of fish and chips might be the comfort food you're after. It's a toss up for the best coffee and baked treat in town with so many cafe's to choose from you are spoilt for choice.

There are many beautiful views to see if you can get into the mountains on foot or even by the lifts. Take the road along the Vallee de la Manche for ten minutes and find yourself at the Lac des Mines d'Or, set between rocky crags and grassy meadows. The thundering Cascade de Nyon is worth a look if rainfall has been high, or take a walk in the Dereche forest in the heart of Morzine itself.
