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.

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.
