  Resort - Self Catered Chalets and ApartmentsWinter skiing or snowboarding in France.


MorzineMorzine is a picturesque town, and is situated in the French Alpine region of the Haute-Savoie. Unlike many ski resorts, Morzine retains all the charm and culture of the farming town that it once was.

The town is bustling with a number of bars, cafés, restaurants and a variety of shops. In the winter, the 'Pleney Stade' piste is lit up at night once a week for evening skiing and sledging. The indoor ice rink is open to the public and also holds ice hockey matches every week. There are two cinemas which play English films in the winter.

Portes du Soleil

The Portes Du Soleil is the largest linked ski area in the world, and is made up of twelve French and Swiss resorts. It boasts some 650 km of piste in the winter.

Climbing from 1000 to 2466m, between France and Switzerland, its 204 ski lifts will take you up to 279 slopes that interconnect the 12 resorts ... all accessible with a single ski pass!  The Portes du Soleil is the most northerly ski resort in France, with skiing up to an altitude of 2,470m and so benefits from excellent snow cover throughout the season. There is an abundance of runs to suit every standard of skier; from nursery slopes for beginners; through extensive cruisy blues and reds for intermediaries; to black runs (the Swiss Wall is not named lightly), mogul fields, and off-piste opportunities for the more adventurous. Both Morzine, and the linked resort of Avoriaz, are renowned by snowboarders and cross-country skiers for their runs and facilities, which are rated as being the best in Europe.
