THE GRAND MASSIF, 5 GREAT DESTINATIONS WITH 265KM OF ENJOYMENT ON YOUR DOORSTEP!
The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski-linked area in France. It has a total of 265km of pistes and rises up to an altitude of 2500m. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, the Grand Massif affords a truly breath-taking panoramic view of the French side of the Mont Blanc mountain range.
The 5 linked resorts - Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt - are set in remarkably diverse, yet complementary locations. Altitude resorts, ski-in ski-out resorts, car-free village and village resorts; each offering amazingly quick access to the Grand Massif's 144 pistes.
Its two distinct villages linked by a high speed gondola, means you can choose your preference: the traditional village at 700m clustered around its 16th century church or the Esserts ski-in ski-out hamlet at 1100m (where our apartment is based).
Just for you, the lovely descents through snow covered fir trees... You´re in Morillon!
A village resort with a perennial alpine and pastoral tradition. Morillon is the perfect place to enjoy relaxed snowsports with the whole family, in welcoming and authentic natural surroundings.
Among the 72 pistes of the Grand Massif, Marvel, the beautiful green run is a must for those who wish to combine the pleasure of skiing with the discovery of local fauna, as explained on the information boards along the edge of the piste.
This is a paradise for children... where parents can ski with peace of mind, with or without their children. Morillon is gentle, white, and full of fun.

"Family Ski Holiday"
Don't usually give 5 out of 5, liking to leave room for improvement, but can't find any reason against a 5 on this occasion.
Clean; well decorated; comfortable; homely; good friendly and prompt service; helpful advise and directions; dishwasher; DVD library and playstation; secure ski storage locker. No issues to mention.
Morillon 1100 resort is sympathetically done and on a modest scale, making for a great spot including those with a young family. It has all you need such as supermarket; bar; ski hire shops, tabac, couple of restaurant... Nice central location for the Massif ski area, with good beginner and intermediate slopes and in particular a great long green run ending at the resort.
[Booking scored NA since took on rental from friends who had to pull out of holiday]

"Lovely apartment,well equipped and in the perfect position"
We stayed at Le refuge de l,Alpage over Christmas with our three children.The directions and instructions were clear and easy to follow, and we arrived to find the apartment clean and as described.
The facilities are great and it immediately has a homely comfortable feel where you know you can relax and unwind. There was lots of useful information in the apartment which saved time and money.
The position is perfect giving fabulous views(must be one of the best in the area) and easy access to the skiing and amenities. The return at the end of the day is off probably the nicest run in Morillon and everyone can do this which makes it really convenient for any group.
If we had to note a negative, it would be the parking. This was not a problem in December but is limited so could be at busier periods. However, as Morillon 1100 has absolutely everything you need a car is not essential so really no problem at all.
We would definitely recommend to others ( already have) and hope to stay here again.
