The Morzine area guide

Things to do

Morzine has been a popular holiday destination since the Edwardian era, with visitors flocking to this picturesque Alpine village to enjoy skating, skiing, and walking around its gentle rolling hills. Its first cable car was installed in 1934, although the town really started to gain its international reputation as a top ski resort after local racer Jean Vuarnet took home an Olympic gold medal in 1960.

This led to the opening of the modern Avoriaz ski resort. Situated in the Portes du Soleil ski region, which spreads throughout the French and Swiss Alps, Morzine not only offers these world class ski facilities, but also the feeling of a charming and traditional French town. Even those who don’t ski will find plenty of activities to enjoy, whether it’s walking through the countryside, shopping, or sampling the local cuisine.

However, much of Morzine’s action takes place on the slopes, particularly during the winter months when visitors flock to the mountain to enjoy its intermediate-level terrain. Skiing and snowboarding lessons and equipment are on hand for those new to the sport. Morzine is also an ideal location for summer sports activities, including mountain biking, hiking, caving, and golf. The region is considered to have some of the best downhill mountain biking trails in the world, with lift access to the trailheads.

Tobogganing, snowmobiling and ice-diving are further adventure activities to explore, while the leisure facilities include an ice rink, golf course and swimming pool. And after a day of active sports, there’s no better way to unwind than at one of the town’s various spas. Centres like Sereni-Cimes and Pure Altitude offer hydrotherapy, sauna and hammam treatments to rejuvenate tired muscles.

Places to eat

This popular ski resort offers no shortage of dining options both on and off the slopes, ranging from budget eateries to lavish gourmet meals. Within the town, you can enjoy international favourites like Thai curry and pizza at Mamma’s, or opt for winter comfort food like fondue and raclette at La Rotonde.

For Michelin-starred dining, visit L’Atelier for a memorable set menu including delicacies such as duck foie gras. Up the mountain, another meal to remember can be had at La Paika, which grills your meat and fish outdoors so that you can enjoy the mountain views from the terrace. If you prefer to get cosy indoors, there’s a wood-burning stove and plenty of nooks to curl up in.

Shopping

Shopping may be the second most popular pastime in Morzine after skiing, and those who prefer to hit the shops rather than the slopes will find plenty of boutiques to explore.

Naturally, you’ll find the usual sports shops like Park Snow and Skate Shop carrying ski and snowboarding gear. However, if you prefer to shop for souvenirs, you’ll also find locally produced crockery and other assorted items at shops along the Rue du Bourg, or you can visit Place de l'Eglise to experience the traditional market stalls selling fresh cheese, honey and confectionery.

For basic conveniences, you’ll find pharmacies, banks and bureau de tabacs in the town centre, along with traditional bakeries. Champion and Sherpa are major supermarkets in the area, offering a range of international produce.
