Morzine Resort Guide

Information and answers to your Morzine questions

Morzine – great for learning to ski & fantastic après ski

Positioned at the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area (PDS), Morzine offers a wealth of accommodation options for all types of holiday maker. With 52 hotels, countless chalets and self catered apartments & 41 bars / restaurants, it’s a concentration of ski holiday facilities, but still manages to pull off that authentic mountain village feel and known as one of the best resorts in France for skiing and après ski.

Whether you are looking for luxury hotels, chalets or apartments that are near to the ski lifts you’ll find it all in Morzine. Buildings still retain a traditional chalet appearance with wooden façades, balconies and local slate roofs.

If you want to be first on the ski lifts in the morning and last out of the bars in the evening, then booking ski accommodation in Morzine itself is a must. The Super Morzine gondola which delivers you directly into the massive Portes du Soleil ski area is right in the centre of the village, as are the Pleney lifts which access the local ski area – Morzine & Les Gets. Bars and restaurants are also right in the centre and has one of the best après ski scenes in the whole of France!

Morzine Resort Guide – Location, location, location

When choosing accommodation, it is worthwhile bearing in mind that the town stretches along the valley so transport is key unless your accommodation is situated within easy walking distance to the ski lifts. Free shuttle buses and a little tourist train help transport skiers around the resort.
