Location description from owner

The Grand Massif region

Situated in the heart of the Northern French Alps, the Grand Massif is one of the most spectacular places to ski, snowboard, mountain or road bike and hike. The views of the Mont Blanc massif are truly spectacular. There's a perfect mix of alpine tradition and sports. The region has a beautiful network of unspoiled Savoyard villages with local markets alongside an exceptional range of exciting mountain activities. These include skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking, rafting, kayaking, hiking, trail running, paragliding amoung others. There are several local festival connected to the seasons and traditional alpine lifestyle throughout the year.

Morillon

The apartment is 500m (5-10 minute walk) from the Morillon cable car which gives access to the entire Grand Massif ski domain (Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoens, Sixt). The Grand Massif includes 265km of pistes and is the 4th largest ski domain in France. The area caters for skiers & boarders of all abilities from first time beginners to powder experts. There is also a ski bus stop just outside the door of the apartment (40m). The ski bus links Morillon, Samoens and Sixt ski resorts. If you hire your skis from our recommended hire shop - Rol' Sports - which is next to the cable car, you can leave your ski equipment at their shop at the end of each day. There is also a great network of cross country ski pistes 5 minutes walk from the apartment.

The whole area - Haute Giffre and Grand Massif - is one of the best places in the Alps to go mountain biking. There is a huge network of trails including some of the finest natural singletrack you'll find anywhere. There are trails for both downhill and cross country enthusiasts. The cable cars and chairlifts take bikes in the summer months. Bike hire is available in Morillon and Samoens.

We run Ride the Alps, which offers fully guided mountain biking holidays in the Spring, Summer and Autumn. Jamie is a fully qualified Mountain Bike Guide and has been guiding trips right across the Alps including in this area for last ten years. Some routes and tips are given free of charge if you are staying here to bike on a self-guided basis. However it is also possible to book a fully guided week of mountain biking or to book 2 or 3 days of guided riding, depending on Jamie's availability.

Jamie is a qualified International Mountain Leader and is a snowshoe guide and igloo builder in the winter months in this area. If you fancy getting away from the crowds during your stay or have non-skiers in your party then Jamie is available to take you out on a snowshoe hike and show you the natural beauty of the mountains. Or he can build you an igloo outside of the apartment!

Just 1km from the apartment in Morillon there is the "Base de Loisirs" by a lake with a beach area, which is perfect for young children. In the summer there are a range of activities on offer including swimming, horse riding, a tree top adventure park and a children's play park, trampolining, volleyball, tennis etc. In the winter the area is set up for cross country skiing and sledging.

The nearest outdoor swimming pool complex is 3km away in Samoens. The nearest indoor pool complex is 20 mins away by car in Cluses.

There are golf courses in Flaine (40 mins) and Les Gets (30 mins).

You can go rafting and kayaking on the river Giffre with several rafting companies based in Samoens and Sixt. We recommend "Nunayak" in Sixt.

There are excellent trails for hiking and trail running with a network of mountain refuges for refreshments or overnight adventures.

The road biking in this area is superb. The Tour de France has been through Morillon several times and one of the toughest Cols in this race - the Col de la Joux Plane - starts in Samoens village, just 4km away.
