Joy at the foot of the ski slopes

Morzine-Avoriaz and the Portes du Soleil

The story of the Morzine-Avoriaz resort is one of the loveliest chapters in the history of the French Alps. It has a timeless charm centred around its little picture postcard village, Morzine, with wooden chalets with traditional slate roofs. With the visionary resort of Avoriaz at its side, the alliance of Morzine-Avoriaz was born. If this destination is ever popular, it’s thanks to its traditional Savoyard way of life, built around age-old traditions passed down from one generation to the next (including recipes), strong values and a taste for innovation. An incomparably pleasant way of life reigns supreme in Morzine-Avoriaz, a destination that provides a happy portal to the Portes du Soleil, a ski area with outstanding snow coverage between mid-November and late April and which is also classed as a true natural powder snow reserve.

Located midway between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, Morzine is nestled away in the heart of the mountains amid enchanting forests and snow-capped peaks. Here in this charming and peaceful environment, you’ll find a wonderfully authentic Alpine village that has lost none of its traditional Savoyard charm. You’ll be able to enjoy a whole range of sports and leisure activities with your family in the village. There are also ongoing events scheduled for young and old alike, such as shows, exhibitions and workshops.

Complementing the neighbouring Morzine’s landscape of chalets, Avoriaz has more avant-garde architecture. Built atop a cliff, it’s a pedestrianised resort where you can go with skis on amid the wooden buildings that blend in with the landscape.
In this car-free resort, there are a number of activities on offer from dawn to dusk all centred around the village square. In summer, you can get round on foot, by bike or by the small train. As a holiday-maker, you’ll be able to access numerous facilities free-of-charge here.
