RESIDENCE DES ALPES D

Morzine-Avoriaz Apartment Rental Photos and Description

mainly ensuite bedrooms, close to shops & skiing. Sleeping 5, 6 and 8.

We have 3 apartments in this handsome 200 year old building, which was once a hotel, and has recently been sympathetically converted into en-suite apartments of a luxury standard - 4 star Tourist Classification awarded June 2009. The location is superb, right in the town centre, opposite Morzine church, next to the Dranse river and just a stone’s throw from the supermarket, boulangerie, bars and restaurants. 5 minutes walk up to the lifts at Pleney, but you can also hop on the 'D' bus which runs in a loop round the town centre and stops by the church. The tennis club and wonderful Morzine heated open-air pool (summer) and new covered public pool are 5 minutes walk down river. Each apartment has a parking space and a secure ski and boot locker at ground level. There is a lift.

Mountain Highs Service: Mountain Highs - We are a small independent company, owned and run by Rachel Pullen and Dean Reed, which has been operating catered and self-catered ski and snowboard holidays in Morzine - Avoriaz, France for the last 16 years.

Mountain Highs Service - Our aim is to provide high quality, smooth-running and memorable winter holidays. We run a range of excellent chalets and apartments in Morzine, and also airport transfers from Geneva. In addition, we can help arrange freelance catering or delivered dinners, child care, the highest quality ski and snowboard instruction and reliable ski and snowboard equipment hire. Many non-skiing activities such as snow shoeing and parapenting are also available in the valley.

Our experience is drawn from many winters and summers catering chalets, ski guiding, driving transfers and managing self-catered chalets and apartments. We live in the area and manage all our accommodation ourselves, ensuring that all your needs are looked after in the resort..

Family Information: If you are coming on holiday as a family, Morzine has plenty to offer children of all ages. There are weekly events organized by the Tourist Office which range from Torchlit Descent to clowning displays and face-painting (see the “Family” information on the Morzine website) Morzine has the advantages of a short transfer from Geneva (1 hr 15 min), a good choice of ski schools with children’s courses, and several options for good quality childcare. Most of our accommodation is child-friendly and we have 16 years experience of accommodating families (please ask us when booking for cots, highchairs, child seats on transfers and childminding). The town itself is easy to get around on foot and with baby buggies, as the roads and pavements are quickly cleared of snow, and there are several easy walks downstream and upstream from the town on specially laid out paths.

We have small children ourselves and we know that the mountains are a great environment for children!

Morzine in Summer: If you like Morzine in winter, then you’ll love it in summer! It’s the same town but seems so different; bright flower displays spilling from every balcony, green pastures all round, colourful parapentes up in the azure sky, the tinkling of Alpine cow bells amongst the wildflowers up on the slopes. There’s such a variety of activities and sports to try, ranging from the increasingly popular mountain biking and hiking to golf, parapenting, tennis, adventure parks, whitewater rafting and via ferrata. Many of these activities are suitable for families with children, which means that you can have an active and interesting summer holiday, keeping everyone happy! See below for a full list of summer sports.

25 Portes du Soleil ski lifts are open in the summer (click here for a summer map) enabling you to get up high for spectacular walking or mountain biking – in fact the whole Portes du Soleil circuit can be covered in a day on mountain bikes once you get up to intermediate level.
