The Rhone/French Alps region
Morillon is set in one of the most beautiful areas in the Haute Savoie Region with fantastic facilities on your doorstep both in summer and winter.
For the skiing enthusiast Morillon has some of the best snow records in the Alps in recent years and is linked with the Grand Massif, one of the greatest skiing domains in France including Flaine, Samoens, Lez Carroz and Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval. However, if you wanted to go further a field Morillon is only a 40 minute drive away from the famous Chamonix Mont Blanc where, for the extremely adventurous amongst you, you can ski the famous Vallee Blanche which is an off-piste ski route, 17km long with a vertical descent of 2800m. The views are stunning and the high mountain environment provides a real sensation of wilderness. This is one of those memorable life experiences. A mountain guide is essential if you fancy doing this trip. With just a 20 minute drive to Les Gets or 30 minutes to Morzine from Morillon you can also ski in the Portes du Soleil. But with the Grand Massif within walking distance from the Chalet you have 265km of pistes to keep you busy.
In the summer the surrounding area is filled with amazing flora and fauna and within driving distance there are many beautiful classic Savoyard towns and villages to visit. A 45 minute drive will take you to Annecy where you can visit one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe, where you can have lunch or dinner dance on the luxury boat La Libellule whilst enjoying the amazing scenery. With its lovely castle, canal walks, shops, restaurants and historic entertainment a visit to Annecy is a must.
Within an hours drive you can also visit Switzerland and Italy
