Chillout Mountain Summer

Morzine Town

As Spring turns into Summer and the sun begins to sizzle, Morzine emerges from the winter and embraces the new season with all guns blazing! Pistes become alpine meadows, frozen lakes turn into fishing ponds and natural swimming pools, icy cliffs transform into climbing walls; and if by magic, a multitude of geraniums appear on every windowsill and roundabout overnight, turning the town into a beautiful alpine, summer resort.

Originally a town before later becoming a ski destination in the Winter months, Morzine has retained its traditional, Savoyarde charm and character. Straddling the picturesque River Dranse, traditional barns, and alpine chalets, noticeable by their slate roofs, nestle on the Valley floor, at the foot of stunning, tree-lined descents. Walkers and Mountain Bikers alike return direct into town, where a combination of bars and restaurants combine with pavement cafés and local craft shops creating the perfect alpine ambience.

Morzine has a raft of facilities for for individuals, couples and families: 2 cinemas, an indoor ice-rink, 3 supermarkets and a weekly market offering local specialities.

There are a host of additional activities to experience, from horse-drawn carriage rides, parapenting, mountain biking to just discovering the serenity of the mountains in your hiking boots. Morzine really does have something for everyone.
