The Rhone/French Alps region
Situated between Paris and the Côte d’Azur, on the border with both Switzerland and Italy, and offering access to two international airports (Lyon and Geneva), impressive rail connections and a vast motorway network, the Rhône-Alpes region is at "the crossroads of Europe".
Boasting eight natural parks and peerless sites such as Mont Blanc and the Gorges de l’Ardèche, the Rhône-Alpes offers a wide range of different landscapes: mountains, vineyards and gentle valleys, fields of lavender and olive groves.
Every form of sport is readily available, set against an impressive natural backdrop: hiking, mountain biking or even paragliding and canoeing. Besides hosting three Winter Olympics games due to its being the largest ski area in the world, the Rhône-Alpes is the second most important golfing region in France with over 60 courses.
Enthusiasts of art and culture will not be disappointed by the region’s Villes d’Art: Lyon, which is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage site, Annecy, Grenoble, Chambéry, and Saint-Étienne.
And last but not least, connoisseurs of good food and wine will be spoilt for choice by the range of local specialties available to taste along with a Beaujolais or a Côtes du Rhône, and by the sheer number of famous restaurants (with Paul Bocuse at the top of the list) in the region.
Morzine-Avoriaz is in the heart of the Portes du Soleil one of the largest ski areas in the world. Set between Geneva and Mont Blanc, Morzine has a beautiful alpine charm and has retained much of its heritage and culture.
Should you be a powder lover or someone who prefers to take it easy on the slopes, the local area along with the rest of the Portes du Soleil is able to offer an immense variety of runs, with 280 lifts covering 13 linked French and Swiss ski resorts with over 650 kilometers of runs.
Skiing & Boarding
Morzine-Avoriaz is one of the top resorts in the world (ranked 5th by the Daily Telegraph Travel Awards) with slopes of suit everyone.
* Beginners can learn in safety in the Lindarets bowl or on the gentle slopes of Pleney.
* Intermediates are spoiled for choice and can ski/board to a different resort each day.
* Advanced skiers can tackle the tour of the Portes du Soleil seeing how many resorts we can get to in one day, and for the more adventurous we can arrange off-piste trips e.g. The Valley de la Manche.
Off the Piste Alternatives
For those who are looking for an alternative, Morzine offers a variety of other activities including ice skating, spas and beauty treatments, walking, snow shoe walks excellent shopping, cinemas and of course many bars and restaurants.
