L'Hotel des Alpes

A handful of hotels existed long before the development of tourism, such as l’hôtel des Voyageurs, and, even older, l’hôtel des Alpes, Founded in 1809, it used to provide accommodation for travellers and merchants passing through the village. This building has now been turned into an apartment block.  
It was only after WWI that the first holidaymakers arrived in Morzine, interested in health retreats or excursions. They stayed at the hotel mostly in the summer to rest and enjoy the benefits of the clean mountain air, as winter tourism only really started in the twenties with the advent of winter sports. The construction of the Pleney cable-car in 1934 would bring its first skiers to Morzine.
