Morzine is one of the most beautiful places for an active summer holiday I know :) The chalet (Kenai) was perfect for our needs and we would definitely recommend it to our friends.

The Manior is the best chalet in Morzine. It has captivating views and The Manior itself is simply stunning. We booked the whole chalet for our family of 6: 2 adults and 4 children aged 12, 11, 10 and 8. To to say we felt “special” is an understatement! The chef Matt cooked delicious meals and the chalet host, Kirsten was what all top chalet hosts should aspire to be like. The beds are so comfortable and the chalet is super spacious. 6 of us could get lost in it, 20 People would fit very comfortably. There are places to be together and be apart- the rooms themselves are spaces you want to spend time in. The whole holiday was lovely and we couldn’t recommend VIP highly enough! A great company where you always get more than expected. If you have never visited The Alps in summer you really should. Morzine is a special place, very vibrant with lots of amazing restaurants and beautiful lakes and mountain walks. Definitely book a chalet through VIP because they have the best chalets in Morzine. We have been returning with our Family now for 8 years and everytime it gets harder to leave!

We continue to return with VIP as we love the service, the quality of the chalets and general attitude of all the staff. However, this was without a doubt our best trip and we want to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to Seb and Hannah who went above and beyond to make our trip wonderful. They were consummate professionals, kind and thoughtful to our every need (and such hard work in the heat in masks!), thanks to you both. Michelle & Paul

Our first summer mountain holiday was not a disappointment. We loved all the resort had to offer and were amazingly well looked after by Hannah and Seb who catered for the needs of two young children, food allergies and were the perfect hosts with their hospitality skills and wonderful local knowledge. The perfect holiday thank you X

We literally can’t fault The Manoir, Morzine or our wonderful hosts, Hannah and Seb. Firstly Morzine in the summer is an amazing place to holiday. The Manoir really is spectacular accommodation. The rooms are so luxurious, the hot tub a family favourite, pétanque is great, cinema/ games room is awesome! Most importantly, our hosts Hannah and Seb looked after us brilliantly. They were so professional whilst being so friendly. Our 6 and 8 year old adored them both. The food they cooked was delicious and plentiful. We really had a wonderful holiday and will be back in 2021!

We had a lovely few days in Morzine staying in Chalet Nevada in early July. It's right in the centre of town with great views of the mountains and the town; ideally placed for everything. It was also well appointed with everything you could need for your stay. The Multi Pass is fantastic and gets you onto all lifts and gives discounts on many activities. Highly recommend the pool complex and the kids just loved the luge track (great fun, even for adults!). The bakery across the road is amazing; outstanding cakes as well as the usual bread and pastries! VIP also arranged a nanny for us for one day through Cheeky Monkeys and Hayley was wonderful, would highly recommend the service. The VIP team couldn't have been more helpful, thanks very much to Ben and Andy. Very much looking forward to returning again soon.

We have considered an alpine summer holiday for a number of years and are delighted that we chose to visit Morzine with VIP Ski. We stayed in the beautiful Little Lumi for a week in August and had a wonderful time. The location on the main street is perfect, with shops and the best bakery we have visited just across the street and lifts up to the mountains just minutes away. The chalet was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a perfect heated balcony for day and evening use. Nat and Ben are the perfect hosts. They are knowledgeable, charming and friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. We really didn't want to leave and will definitely be back. We have already recommended VIP Ski to a number of our friends!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Valdez suite for five nights as we were back in Morzine for a wedding. Having worked for VIP myself, I knew of the standard expected and the emphasis on quality and we were certainly not disappointed. Valdez itself remains an incredibly stylish and perfectly located chalet that easily holds four people. Our favourite areas were the balcony overlooking the main high street and the fantastic hot tub facility. The resort manager, Natalie, was incredibly friendly and helpful. Her communication was fantastic and she made us feel incredibly welcome. Our two cleaners were both very friendly and did a fantastic job working around us when necessary. Overall, we cannot recommend VIP and Valdez enough and we will be back very soon! Thank you.

Had a fabulous family holiday. Gorgeous house, great food, lovely chalet cooks/hosts Loved Morzine in the sun. The multipass is a great addition.
23 Aug 2017Stayed Aug 2017
From the minute we arrived in Morzine our experience was amazing ! I had only ever been to Morzine in the winter, but in the summer it just keeps on giving!! There is so much left to do we will have to return. Our accommodation was perfect for our large mixed aged group 2-63!! It was clean, equipped to a very high standard and quality, right down to the luxurious spa products. Our chalet host Chloe could not have been more helpful and with her knowledge of the area enabled us to get the very best from all that Morzine has to offer. To sum up when I asked my partner for his contribution for review he said " it was the best holiday he had ever had"
23 Aug 2017Stayed Aug 2017
In a great location Best bakery, pizza and ice cream just across the road Double glazing keeps it quiet at night The place was spotless. Quality sheets and towels. Well equipped kitchen, extra fridge for drinks We enjoyed the morzine passes. Played tennis, used the fabulous pool in town. Nice being able to walk A perfect spot for a family with kids ( us, kids aged 11 and 13) or a group of friends Free parking is good
20 Aug 2017Stayed Aug 2017
We stayed for a week self catered in Chalet Berger and had a wonderful time. The welcome pack gave us loads of info about Morzine and activities, and the free multi passes were a great addition too. The Chalet was kept so clean and tidy and the staff were great when they popped in to make sure we had everything we needed. Would thoroughly recommend Vip ski and Morzine as a resort in the summer and winter, the team here make everything as easy as possible.
14 Aug 2017Stayed Aug 2017
We had a brilliant 4 night stay in Morzine in the Valdez Suite as a family of four with a 2 and a 5 year old. The apartment was spacious and clean. Our only complaint was that the apartment was a little hot but then that meant the sun was shining out side so lovely weather to enjoy all of the activities on offer. The swimming pool is great, we visited the lakes at Les Gets and Montriond and did some walking, pony rides, lift trips etc. The resort was really busy which meant everything was open. VIP staff in resort couldn't have been more helpful and friendly to ensure we had a good few days. We just did a taxi transfer and didn't regret not having a car in resort as the bus service is very reliable. We would definitely look to return another summer for an active break.
08 Aug 2017Stayed Jul 2017
Great, quiet location with fantastic views across the mountains. Easy access to all activities in Les Gets, Morzine and beyond. Lovely rooms and food was fantastic.

We have stayed in the Alps before in the summer, but we have been looking for a while to concoct the perfect recipe for a multi-family holiday with young children. We chose the catered 'half board' option and struck gold with Nick (chef) and Nicky (hostess). The Manoir provided us 5 immaculate bedrooms with en-suites that easily catered for our two (4-person) familes plus a granny. The house and vista are gorgeous. The interior decor was lovely. The team were excellent, friendly and accomodating hosts. When we requested an outside table and chairs, they accomodated the same day. When we fancied a cheese board, it was sourced. When we put in our special dietary requests, they were met. All with no consternation or awkwardness. Childrens' tea was always on the table, having 'rocked up' 5 minutes prior and all four children (ages 13, 12, 5, 3) gobbled it all up. The parents could have easily had the same, but a later evening gourmet 3 course feast was subsequently provided with the young ones safely asleep upstairs. We have previously stayed with VIP in Lech, St Anton and Meribel (all good) and this surpassed our expectations. Morzine has a huge amount to offer the outdoor enthusiast. The manoir had a hot tub, which was pristine, and we think there's even space on the terrace for a swimming pool at some point in the future which would ice the cake ;) Thank you Nick and Nicky for making our holiday so special

Altitude Lodge is simply amazing. In a tranquil setting above the town of Les Gets it is the perfect place for unwinding and enjoying the stunning views. The rooms are beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The rooms with private hot tubs are desirable - we recommend Room 5. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We were on a half-board basis and the food was of a very high standard. All dietary requests are carefully taken care of. The service was excellent and we felt very well looked after. We visited in mid July and the weather was perfect. There is a lot do to in the area from walking, to zip-wiring, summer luging, parapenting, swimming and white water rafting to name just a few. We would highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate in returning.
25 Jul 2017Stayed Jul 2017
What a wonderful holiday we had. Ben our host couldn't have been more helpful and what a chef!!! It was like eating in a 5* restaurant every night. He made us picnics on some days which were more like culinary feasts. No day went without a check up phil he call and suggestions on what to do. If only all chalet company's could be like this.
24 Jul 2017Stayed Jul 2017
From booking through to leaving, all of us were blown away with just how good our holiday with VIP was. The fact that you arranged transfers for multiple arrival and departure days and times, all of which where ready and waiting for us in a convenient place and appropriate for the luggage we had was great and really took the pressure out of this part of the holiday. The chalet itself was brilliant. Cleaned everyday and around us sometimes was again great. Any questions we had, Nat was always on the other end with helpful answers and seemingly a smile while she did it. Full credit to her as a number of us mentioned how nice and helpful she was. When we were leaving, a late departure was no trouble, and though the ice machine was broken, there were bags of ice in the fridge for us once this was mentioned. I really would have no issues booking via VIP again, and personally doing the same chalet would be my preference. I think you have found at least 13 new customers for VIP.

From the moment we walked into Altitude Lodge, we knew we were going to have a fab holiday...the chalet was as lovely as the photos on the web site and in such a tranquil spot . But what really brought the chalet to life were its lovely staff, so friendly and so helpful...we'd like to say a massive thank-you to Seb, Chloe, Hannah, Andy, Sean and later in the holiday Ben and Natalie for making our stay so enjoyable. The food was SO good and we really appreciate the effort that went into it...we love our food!!! We came to walk and love the fact that you can do a whole host of walks from the doorstep and with the great lift system working in the summer, (thank-you for the free lift pass!) you can cover quite a distance without using the car or bus. It was our first time in the French Alps and we loved it! We will definite holiday again in this area and would love to come back to Altitude Lodge (and a certain Patisserie in Morzine!!) (We would just also like to mention how helpful the booking staff were and how easy it was to arrange the holiday.)
11 Jul 2017Stayed Jul 2017
Amazing chalet with a great view from all the bedrooms and balconies. Also being in the centre of town meant it was only a short walk to the ski lifts, bars and restaurants! I had such a great week , would definitely recommend a stay at Nevada!
11 Jul 2017Stayed Jul 2017
Great service from VIPski, Well appointed chalet with huge balconies 5 mins from the lifts. The mountains at this time of the year are absolutely stunning, take a lift to the top then follow one of the many trails through fields of wild flowers down to bottom. I had expected the town in summer to be a bit quiet but there was a lot going on and the mountain bikers were having a great time. Swim in one of the natural lakes or the towns open air pools.

Altitude Lodge is a superb place to stay in the summer; exceptional value with lovely bedrooms, great for families and delicious plentiful food as always! The whole VIP team, including Seb, Chloe and Hannah were wonderful and incredibly helpful, ensuring we got the best out of our short break. The Lodge is up the mountain at the mid station (Chavannes) and is very tranquil with amazing views, right in the midst of many walk/bike trails. It's only a short car journey up/down mountain, so very easy to get into the centre of town or beyond. Les Gets and the surrounding area is just incredible in summer with so many activities on offer for all ages and abilities, our kids were in heaven; can't believe it's taken us so long to give it a go. Already planning another visit. Thank you VIP.
Morzine bustles with excitement, activities and weekly markets in the summer months; it’s a magnet for touring cyclists, bikers, classic car enthusiasts, walkers, climbers, adrenalin seekers and scenic tourists. It's such a great place many of our staff have made it their permanent home.
Morzine Summer Holidays
We open several of our chalets in Morzine during the summer months. All are perfectly located in the centre of the town so you have easy access to everything on offer. We have self-catered, B&B or half board options so whatever your requirement we'll hopefully have something to suit. A summer holiday in the Alps is much more relaxed than our winter ski breaks and our service is tailored to you.
Morzine has many cafés and bars, there are a wide variety of lovely shops, restaurants and boutiques. The sporting facilities are amazing, from world renown mountain biking, incredible road biking, an Olympic outdoor swimming pool, 10 outdoor tennis courts, an ice rink, two golf courses, an adventure park, summer luge, horse riding, parapenting, trampolines, playgrounds and a whole variety of sports and alpine activities. The ski lifts spread to every point of the compass and give effortless access to hundreds of kilometres of high mountain footpaths and mountain bike trails.
During the summer Les Gets abounds with flowers and sunshine and offers a tempting mix of activities. Anyone considering a summer holiday in Les Gets will discover a warm welcome and a wonderful village in a stunning location of the French Alps.
We bought Altitude Lodge back in 2008 and spent three years renovating it to what it is today. The hotel includes a bar, lounge terrace, two small private lounges with flat screen entertainment, and private hot tubs. What's more, it's only 400m from the Les Gets golf course. Many rate this as the most scenic course they have ever played with lush green fairways and the glorious backdrop of a snow clad Mont Blanc.
Les Gets summer holidays
Les Gets and the surrounding area provides a playground for hiking and mountain biking. The ski lifts spread to every point of the compass and give effortless access to hundreds of kilometres of high mountain footpaths and mountain bike trails. For those looking for total relaxation you will not find a better spot. The area has something to offer every age and interest, and is the ideal destination for individuals, couples, families and groups.
The Portes du Soleil area has something to offer every age and interest, and is the ideal destination for individuals, couples, families and groups. If you choose to stroll further than your front door then the spectacular beaches of Lake Geneva are only 30 minutes away, Annecy and Chamonix a little over an hour, and Italy 20 minutes further.
We will be giving all guests staying with us in Morzine and Les Gets a FREE Multi Pass for the duration of their stay. The multi pass gives unlimited use of 21 chairlifts and cable cars and the inter-resort bus service. It also gives access to the swimming pool and swimming lake, the ice-rink, mini-golf and tennis courts. Plus unlimited access to fabulous heritage sites throughout the Portes du Soleil. In addition a large number of restaurants, bars and shops will offer discount up to 20% on presentation of the Multi Pass card.
Most people choose to drive out to the Alps. Morzine/ Les Gets and Alpe d’Huez are approximately 570 miles from Calais and all but the last half an hour is on the finest French motorways. It is usually nine hours once you have filled up with petrol and had a few snack/loo stops for the kids. The tolls cost about 40€ each way.
A quicker option if you don’t mind the grief of contemporary air travel, would be to fly and hire a car. We can organise flights and car hire for you, or can provide information to help you if you wish to book this yourselves.
Approximate drive times from each airport would be:
Drive to Alpe d’Huez – 2hrs 30 mins
Drive to Morzine – 1 hr 10 mins
