Morzine lies at the heart of the Portes du Soleil and is a bustling Alpine town, full of character and atmosphere. The village is still largely made up of traditional wooden chalets with local slate roofs, which retains the Savoyard charm so often lacking in some of today's purpose built resorts. Read more

The Portes du Soleil offers 650km of groomed runs - the largest linked ski area in the world - spread over a massive area that takes in 12 traditional towns and villages across both France and Switzerland.

Morzine does have a fairly low altitude at 1,000m. However, lift links to the higher resort of Avoriaz at 1,800m, with its top lift station at 2,350m, ensuring that skiing continues throughout the season and into early May.

Morzine has a vast array of restaurants for dining either at lunchtime or in the evening and you will be certain to find somewhere to suit your taste and budget.
