The Rhone/French Alps region
Part of the massive Portes du Soleil, Morzine is a picturesque town with excellent facilities for both winter and summer.
Morzine is a popular resort with a little something for everyone. People wanting to experience a traditional small town ambiance, with plenty of opportunities for shopping and eating out, and a varied nightlife, will love it.
Families looking for entertainment and good children's facilities will also find lots to do to keep the younger ones happy.
It is well linked into the extensive Portes du Soleil area and has a frequent bus service to get you around town and to the main lifts with ease. It also has its own fairly extensive ski area, linked via the Pleney and Nyon lifts to Les Gets.
It is a lively year-round resort and a bustling market town - the life outside tourism is still there, the agricultural heritage remains strong.
It is an ideal winter and summer destination in the Alps, and is just a short 1 hour and 15 minute transfer from Geneva airport.
The Portes du Soleil is one of the largest ski areas in the world, and has runs and off piste to suit every taste. Morzine Avoriaz has 2 indoor swimming pools and a huge choice of non skiing activities. Morzine is a great alpine base for summer and there are plenty of things to do for everyone.
Extensive walking trails, mountain biking, rafting, via ferrata, paragliding, are just some of the activities available for all ages and abilities.
Far from being just a tourist resort, Morzine is a charming and bustling small market town, and it's agricultural heritage is still very much in evidence.
Along with it's smaller neighbour, Les Gets, just 6km away by road, the area has become something of a mountain biking mecca in recent years - often playing host to national and international competitions.
Road biking is also popular, and the town has regularly featured as a starting or ending point for stages of the Tour de France.
Situated at the confluence of several mountain streams, Morzine can also offer white knuckle whitewater activities on the River Dranse.
With a car it is easy to visit some of the most beautiful parts of the Haute Savoie - Annecy, Mont Blanc, Les Aravis for example - and Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) and its attractions are not far away.

The great thing about Alpine Activities is that everything is handled for you which makes a skiing vacation first class. There are quite a few requirements when planning skiing but when you have Simon and Jo looking after you everything is sorted from Lift passes to equipment hire which means you maximise your skiing time. Simon's knowledge of the resort and area is second to none and every ski holiday we take with Alpine Activities produces new skiing areas and new challenges. The Porte du Soleil really is a vast resort and you can ski in France in the morning and Switzerland in the afternoon. To have such an accomplished skiier look after you and show you spectacular views and runs in a weeks stay would probably take about 4 weeks if you were to navigate on your own. The accommodation has a really cozy feel to it and when you are gathered with friends enjoying a first class evening meal, chatting and laughing about the days events it can only be described as being like "Christmas Day Every day" for the length of your stay.

"Beautifully refurbished traditional Alpine chalet with exceptional food and fantastic hosts"
We've had several great ski trips with Alpine Activities and the recent completion of the refurbishment of Simon and Jo's chalet just tops off the experience. Simon and Jo have fitted the chalet out to a fantastic standard with all mod cons (including hot tub) while keeping its traditional charm. The result is a cozy, relaxing and truly Alpine place to recover after a day on the slopes, set amid towering mountain peaks in the beautiful Valley de la Manche, near the Nyon lifts. Simon and Jo are friendly and fun hosts, who really make your stay. Jo's three-course dinners are exceptional and are accompanied by great wines (or beer if you prefer). Simon is an international mountain leader who knows the Portes du Soleil ski area like the back of his hand and is happy to advise you on how to get the best from your day's skiing, including off piste areas and avalanche risks etc . The chalet is not staffed during the day so if you want lunch and a hotel type service then you would probably be better off staying in one of the town's many hotels. It's also a little bit out of the town centre (2 miles) so won't suit if you are looking for nightclubs, but to make your stay as easy as possible they will drop you at the lifts each morning and pick you up at the time of your choosing later in the day from the pistes or apres ski - no walking in ski boots! Also, the chalet is on one of Morzine's well served, free bus routes. For a family holiday or a great place to hang out with your friends this is a real gem in the Alps.
