MORZINE – AN ABSOLUTELY AUTHENTIC VILLAGE
From the summit of Chamossière you can make out Lake Geneva to the north, Mont Blanc to the south, and the Swiss border just a short distance away - a quick glance around and straight away you can situate Morzine, a little town tucked away in the Alps, nestling between the mountains and forests. Here you will find the pleasant leisurely lifestyle and authentic charm of a village which has retained all its typical Savoyard character.
Ideally located in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area, Morzine offers a wonderful playground of 650km of ski slopes in the winter. In the summer they become waymarked trails for hiking and mountain biking. The immense unspoilt open spaces around beckon you to get away from it all and explore them as you wish.
Whether for a few days or a long holiday, Morzine attracts people who wish to gently while away the time as well as those looking for sporting thrills, all seeking to recharge their batteries with their family or friends and experience genuine, simple pleasures.
ONCE UPON A TIME... IN MORZINE-AVORIAZ
The early days of tourism with the building of the "Grand Hôtel”
It is sometimes quietly said that tourism in Morzine is all ultimately down to the kindly determination of a few well-placed civil servants stationed in Geneva who succumbed to the charms of the little town huddling in the Alps Valley and its landscape of gentle alpine pastures blending in with abrupt mountainsides.
