Morzine

luxury winter holidays morzine

Morzine is the perfect location in which to base your holiday. It combines the charm of a traditional French alpine town with the facilities of a first class ski resort.

The pace of life in Morzine can be as sedate or as busy as you like. After a day on the mountain you can relax in the countless pavement cafes, or by taking a gentle stroll round the numerous shops, browsing the ski & board equipment, locally made arts & crafts, and sampling the delicious cheeses and wines.

In the night the pace of life accelerates with a wide variety of bars being open until early in the morning. For the true party animals (or insomniacs) there are two night-clubs open until 5am!

Activities

If you fancy taking time away from the slopes there are plenty of activities in and around the village to keep you entertained. Try taking a tandem paragliding session with a trained instructor and get a true birds eye view of the mountains.

If you prefer to keep your feet more firmly on the ground, try a snow shoe excursion into places on the mountainside that no boarders or skiers ever reach.

Other available activities include: Tobogganing, Dog sled rides, Hot air ballooning, Helicopter rides, Ice Diving, Snowmobiling, Cross-country Skiing, and many more.
