About Morzine

Morzine has all the traditional trimmings of a French alpine town, just a short dash from Geneva airport, so it's easy to see why it's a popular destination all year round. But of course in winter its local slopes, lightly dusted with forest, become a playground for skiers and wintersports-folk. As well as being easy to get to there's also plenty of choice when it comes to choosing the best places to stay in Morzine - from chalets to hotels - and there's a wide range of restaurants and bars in town, and ski huts out on the slopes. So this is an easy resort to enjoy and a great place for families.

What Not To Miss

  • Morzine is a great spot to learn to ski, or to improve your skills, and there's plenty of choice when it comes to intermediate slopes. There are also around 70kms of cross country ski routes, and an excellent range of facilities for snowboarders.
  • When the lake freezes it’s the perfect skating rink, and the hills surrounding the town are perfect for a gentle off-piste ramble.
  • Morzine is capital of the Portes du Soleil region, so has the best après ski and atmosphere, but its low altitude means that you might not get snow here until the season starts a-proper - but you can always enjoy the town’s many charms though, and catch the lifts upwards…
  • In the summer Morzine is popular with hikers and bikers - who're catered to so well there's even a bike park, which is like a snow park for snowboarders.
  • There's also a golf course if you fancy a few holes instead of hiking or cycling.
  • Or for something completely different - there's a waterpark in nearby Avoriaz with everything from a lazy river to a rope swing ensuring there's no shortage of things to keep the kids entertained.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Morzine are charming properties that enable visitors to make the most of all the activities that the town has to offer.

The best places to stay in Morzine

In the centre of town

  • La Bergerie is a family friendly traditional alpine chalet offering stunning views and enjoying a great central location. It's ideal for either winter or summer holidays, with its easy access to the slopes in winter and the plethora of summer activities close by including hiking and biking. Plus there's a lovely pool for relaxing after a tough day in the mountains.
  • The Farmhouse is a stunning property in the centre of the village. There are eleven individually designed rooms with plenty of period features and a really cosy feel. Dinner is a very jolly affair with delicious daily changing set menus served to all around a communal table. Ideal for families, groups or even a romantic break!

Just outside

  • In a pretty, traditional looking alpine village just outside Morzine, La Ferme du Lac Vert, is a beautiful converted chalet built in 1842 with 14 sumptuous rooms and lovely views. The new decor incorporates modern art and top notch hot tubs in amongst the antiques and original features, and along with those 14 rooms there’s a six man mini-chalet for groups or families. As well as four course suppers prepared by AA Rosette chefs they do a delicious afternoon tea and canapés.

Travel Information

  • Fly to Geneva Airport located 83km (52 miles) from Morzine with a wide selection of flight connections across Europe and to North America and Africa.
  • If you want to rent a car to explore the mountains - for prices and online booking click here.
  • Morzine is really charming around Christmas, but if you’re serious about skiing then you’re better off holding off until January at least. February is a really popular time, but that’s probably partly due to school holidays. By March the days are longer and sunnier, but by the end of March and into April most years things are getting slushy, which can be fun, but it’s not so serious.
