Summer in Morzine

Whether you’re looking for adventure or relaxation, Morzine is THE place to be this summer. The winter snow has receded and as the sun shines, temperatures reach the mid 20s degrees C. Summer in Morzine is special, without doubt. From late June until early September, and seemingly almost by magic, Morzine transforms into an easy-going summer holiday destination for families, mountain lovers and thrill-seekers that’s sure to keep everyone happy. Summer in Morzine is a mixture of two different exciting and enticing alpine worlds…

The first: Morzine is an idyllically scenic and traditional alpine village, with beautiful wooden chalets nestling perfectly amongst the stunning mountain backdrop. Think lush green meadows, pine trees, wild flowers, fresh air and even the distant ringing of cow bells. Morzine in summer is a relaxing French holiday paradise in the great outdoors.

The second: The amazing, limitless, gigantic outdoor adventure playground that is Morzine in summer. This is something to write home about – just wow! With so many things to do for all ages and interests, Morzine is amongst the best summer activity holiday locations in Europe.

“The location of our chalet was perfect, right in the centre of town and just a few metres from Pleney lift. There was plenty of room, as well as ample bike storage and a hot tub with incredible views of the mountains.”
