A pretty Alpine town situated close to the border with Switzerland, linked to neighbouring Avoriaz & Les Gets and the enormous Portes du Soleil ski area. Morzine and its surrounding villages are packed with lots of chalets and apartments with a mix of traditional and more modern design, offering plenty of Alpine charm for the thousands of visitors that come here every year. It’s not only a great place to visit but suits skiers and snowboarders of every level of ability.

The region encompasses the best of the Alps from quiet hamlets to bustling resorts, lively nightlife and extreme sports. Above Morzine, and linked by ski lifts, Avoriaz is probably the most distinctive of the Portes du Soleil ski stations, due to its futuristic design and dramatic cliff top location.
