About Morzine

Just under one-and-a-half hours’ drive from Geneva, Morzine is a marvellous alpine destination. Popular with travellers from France and Switzerland as well as further afield, this a charming French mountain town for an active summer holiday or a ski-focused winter escape. Accommodation options range from private chalets to historic hotels, ideal for couples, friends or families. Some of the best places to stay in Morzine are nestled within the town itself, but we also have a couple of favourites in the surrounding villages.

Brilliant for beginners or advanced skiers and snowboarders, Morzine offers a diverse set of slopes, including 70kms of cross-country ski routes. Spend your days zipping down the mountainside with friends, watching the little ones hone their skills at ski school, or skating on the frozen lake, with panoramic views of the snow-covered mountains above.

Come summer, you can expect countless trails for mountain bikers and hikers, as well as a golf course, a waterpark in nearby Avoriaz, or swimming pools at some of the best places to stay in Morzine. The capital of the Portes du Soleil region, Morzine is a wonderful choice for a French alpine trip, with a lively après-ski scene, a vast array of activities, and some gorgeous chalets.

The Best Places to Stay in Morzine

  • The Farmhouse boasts 11 cosy rooms with wooden beams and period furnishings in an imposing 18th century house and two adjacent buildings. Gather for dinners around the communal table after big days out. An intimate spot for couples, friends or families in the heart of Morzine.

For Families

  • La Bergerie is a family-friendly alpine chalet offering stunning views from a great central Morzine location. Its proximity to the slopes makes it ideal for both summer and winter holidays. The swimming pool and communal lounge area with roaring fire are perfect for unwinding as a family.
  • Le Petit Dru is a classic chalet hotel with contemporary interiors and a plethora of lively communal areas. Play pool, table tennis and table football, gather at the bar, take a refreshing dip in the outdoor swimming pool or kick back at the spa. Families will appreciate the fun, sociable atmosphere, the activities and the flexible room options.

For Luxury

  • La Ferme du Lac Vert dates back to 1842, but a 21st-century renovation has yielded sumptuous suites with characterful pine furnishings, big bathtubs and sink-into beds. The mini-chalet sleeps groups of up to six guests: perfect for family and friends travelling together. Four-course dinners and delicious afternoon teas are a real treat. A luxurious pick in Montriond, near Morzine.


  • If you'd prefer a self-catering option, we suggest that you visit our online partner Booking.com.


  • Fly to Geneva Airport, and drive 1 hour and 20 minutes into the mountains to Morzine. Alternatively, hop aboard the bus, which takes closer to three hours, but is appealingly affordable.
  • Haute-Savoie is wonderful for a road trip! Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car.
  • The ski season begins in November, and Morzine is charming at Christmas, but serious skiers will find that the best snow is expected from January onwards. By late March and early April, higher temperatures mean that the snow can become slushy. Avoid February half-term for better deals and fewer crowds.
