Morzine, France. THE perfect winter and summer alpine holiday destination
We believe Morzine has it all. Many years ago it was Morzine – and only Morzine – that lured Simply Morzine founder Mike Marshall, away from his then profession as a school teacher, onto the path less trodden and into the unknown world of business. Mike’s vision was to raise the standard of the French catered chalet holiday industry and believed he’d spotted the perpetual potential of our world class year-round alpine resort. Morzine offered the opportunity and platform to make his dream a reality. Over 20 years later, Simply Morzine continually creates exemplary winter and summer holidays in Morzine.
Morzine, French Alps
Morzine is located in the centre of the vast Portes du Soleil, half way between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, astride the French-Swiss border. Only 75 km from Geneva airport, Morzine is easily accessible from the UK, Ireland and further afield, with a short transfer time of approximately 1 hour 20 minutes. We best-describe Morzine as a charming chocolate-box with the most delightful Savoyard atmosphere. Morzine sparkles, on the surface typically traditional and rustically alpine.
Alas, don’t be fooled by Morzine’s magnetism. Behind this charming façade lies a leading, state-of-the-art, heavily-investing winter ski and summer alpine holiday destination - which we believe rivals any mountain resort on the planet.
Morzine winter holidays
Morzine/Avoriaz is arguably THE leading winter alpine holiday resort in France. The sheer scale and variety of the immense Portes du Soleil ski area allows winter guests of all levels and ability to continually discover something new, fresh and different. Boasting a massive 650km of pistes and almost 200 lifts throughout 13 linked resorts in France and Switzerland, the ski and snowboard possibilities are near-endless. Many Simply Morzine guests maintain there is no need to ski anywhere else. We concur. This is why we specialise in a single resort only. Morzine. We are Simply Morzine.
Morzine summer holidays
As Mike Marshall observed in our early days, Morzine is not solely famous for its winter ski holidays. The resort offers so much more - and is also a fantastic duel season French holiday hotspot. Consequently, in summer, Morzine bursts and bustles back into life, into bloom. It transforms into a veritable lush green outdoor paradise. The vibrancy, buzz and massive range of activities and things to do for all ages form the bedrock of our unique family alpine adventure holidays. Diverse and distinctive, a summer holiday in Morzine with Simply Morzine is a must for families looking to do something different, to escape from the beach and into the mountains. Give us a try this summer...
Morzine village - winter and summer
Morzine is a fairly large, scenic French alpine holiday resort, welcoming visitors in winter and summer with an impressive variety of cafés, restaurants, shops and boutiques. The wide selection and differing styles of pubs and wine bars provide superb après ski/bike, whilst Morzine’s lively nightclubs stay open deep into the early hours! In winter, the non-skier can enjoy a wealth of activities including paragliding, ice skating, snow-shoeing, ice-diving, snow scooters, tobogganing, husky and horse-drawn sleigh rides. In either season, the impressive indoor/outdoor swimming pool complex is a must-visit, as is watching the Morzine Penguins ice hockey team, who compete in the echelons of the French national premier league. A diverse, unsurpassed programme of major events continues to entertain guests. All of Morzine’s superb leisure facilities are within a short distance of our Simply Morzine properties.
