The Rhone/French Alps region
Morillon lies in the centre of a wide glacial valley through which flows the River Giffre. It is one of nine satellite hamlets that are scattered over the forested slopes, with each town or village having a chapel surmounted by a graceful onion-shaped spire. The area is famed for its natural beauty and spectacular scenery.
The Grand Massif is a fantastic snow sure skiing area with 265 km of pisted slopes. Despite being relatively off the beaten tourist track, it has the same amount of pisted slopes as better know resorts such as Val d’Isere. The Grand Massif holds one of the best snow records in the French Alps thanks to it’s numerous north facing slopes, its proximity to Mont Blanc, and its state of the art artificial snow making equipment (128 snow canons in all).
There are three state of the art snow parks in the Grand Massif for snowboarders and free style skiers that range in difficulty from beginner right through to expert. The park in Morillon is designed for children and beginners, Samoens caters for intermediates, and the snow park in Flaine has rails, tables, big air jumps and half pipes for all ability levels.
If downhill skiing isn’t for you but you enjoy other winter outdoor activities then the Grand Massif has much to offer. There are two ice-skating rinks within a short distance of Chalet Mautalent, with the the rink in Morillon being just 300 metres down the road and Samoens ice rink being only 2km away. There are also 80kms of beautiful cross-country skiing trails, and for the super adventurous there is ice climbing, ski mountaineering and dog sledging on offer.
The Morillon valley is simply stunning in the Summer months.
Popular outdoor Summer activities include mountain biking, swimming, visiting leisure parks, road cycling, rock climbing, horse-riding, trampolining, fishing, potholing, high- wire tree climbing, mountain trekking and paragliding. We are also lucky enough at Chalet Mautalent to be situated just 200 metres from the local tennis courts, 200 metres from a mini-golf course, and 500 metres from the famous Lac-Bleu (a beautiful lake where you can go swimming and sunbathe).
Chalet Mautalent is 800m from Morillon village centre, 2km from the town of Samoens, and 1km from a Carrefour supermarket. There are excellent local markets in Samoens on Wednesday morning and in Morillon on Friday afternoon. There is even a very small market at the corner of the roundabout just 150 metres from the chalet on a Friday morning, and a rotisserie at the same roundabout on a Sunday.
The town of Samoens dates back to the 13th century, with this "ville fleurie" being distinguished as one of the prettiest towns in France. There is a wonderful botanical garden that gives a panoramic view of the valley, a gothic church, medieval squares, timber-fronted patisseries and a 1940s cinema. Morillon is a newer village but has become a base for a vast number of outdoor activities in the valley, centred around the "Lac Bleu," a beautiful lake that is just a 3 minute walk from Chalet Mautalent.
For further information about the area and activities available, we advise our guests to visit the newly updated Morillon tourism office website (http://www.ot-morillon.fr/en/summer/index.htm) that is available in both French and English.
