Situated midway between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, Morzine is nestled in the palm of the mountains, amidst great forests and summits. Here it's all about living the good life, right in the middle of this charmingly authentic Savoyard village (wood facades, balconies openwork, and slate roofs) that has lost none of his character since its development as a leading European ski resort. Perfectly located in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, the ski area boasting over 650km of marked ski runs, Morzine, the winter playground is surrounded by vast areas of untouched wilderness. Morzine is one of the main centres of the Portes du Soleil ski area. From the Morzine/Les Gets ski area take the Super Morzine gondola to meet up with the fantastic skiing in Avoriaz.

There are a wide range of restaurants in Morzine to suit all tastes, and budgets. Whether it’s lunch on the mountain or dinner in town, there is plenty of delicious authentic Alpine food and drink options on offer.
There’s no shortage of places in Morzine to go for a drink or two! From amazing après ski spots to late night venues, there's something for everyone in this vibrant alpine town both in and out of season.
Morzine is well-known as the central access point for the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, but outside of the ski season the town regains its summer charm, tourist numbers decrease and the surrounding countryside opens up as a massive alpine adventure playground.
The slopes become green pastures where cows, sheep and goats graze, bright flowers hang from balconies, restaurant terraces spill onto the pavement and a laid back vibe takes over the town.
It’s eerily quiet in the daytime when visitors escape to the lakes, trails and rivers, until mid-afternoon when sun-tanned walkers, bikers and rafters filter in for nutrition and a well-earned kip. Apart from the odd whiff of a BBQ the air is fresh and the sky dotted with clusters of colourful parachutes from paragliders enjoying their own slice of this natural paradise.
