A swim at Montriond lake is definitely a must

Montriond lake is the ideal place for a refreshing swim. Located in the town of Montriond, a stone's throw from Morzine, it is the 3rd largest lake in Haute-Savoie. Nestled along the cliffs, Montriond lake will amaze you with the colour of its water! You can’t help but fall in love with it! On summer days, many families love to go and enjoy swimming in the small, supervised lake next to the main lake. Children also enjoy the games and activities arranged around the lake. 
You can also go and swim in the main lake, but beware that swimming there is not supervised.
You should also take a walk around the lake. The walk on its shores is flat and easy. You will definitely love to spend time admiring the lake from all angles!

Relax at the Morzine Aquatic Center

If you don't want to go to Montriond, or prefer to swim in a swimming-pool, Morzine Aquatic Center is located in the heart of the village of Morzine, at the entrance to the Parc des Dérêches. The aquatic area is large enough to accommodate no less than 3 indoor pools and 3 outdoor pools. Both children and other members of the family will find a reason to like it. While some will enjoy the good weather by sunbathing on the deckchairs by the large pool, others will have fun on the slide! Everyone might end up together at the end of the day for a game of Volleyball in the gardens of the Aquatic Center.
