Morzine - Resort
Morzine is in the heart of the excellent Portes du Soleil, and part of the largest interlinked ski area in Europe with over 650kms of piste! Morzine is the birthplace of Alpine Elements. This is where it all started in 1997; and we still have a soft spot for it today. A pretty, traditional town in the heart of the Portes du Soleil region, it provides a perfect backdrop to our chalets - all quite different in character but each a great base for your summer activity holiday or winter ski break.
A very friendly mountain town with pretty chalet style architecture and only 1 hour from Geneva. This resort suits all levels - especially beginners and intermediate skiers and boarders.
The Portes du Soleil is an extensive area spreading over France and Switzerland, with 650km of skiing in winter and quality biking in the summer. For skiing it is a great place to learn: the fairly gentle terrain will build confidence, and there is much scope for more advanced skiers too. In summer this is a mountain biking holidays mecca: adrenaline junkies flock to Morzine in the summer months in search of quality purpose built trails and fantastic free-riding, and they are not disappointed. A great year-round holiday destination!
The town centre is a lovely place to wander around in the evenings. There are great sports shops if you fancy some new gear: try Park, Snow and Skate for the latest trends. For an evening meal there are plenty of Savoyard options: Le Café Chaud offers a fantastic meal deal, or for a more authentic experience go to Pique-Feu, which is a food shop by day, and serves its local produce in the back dining room during the evenings.
