Morzine is one of the few European resorts that has managed to truly maintain its small town charm and traditional character, despite the fact it’s located right in the middle of one of the most popular ski destinations on the planet. The resort comprises of 12 individually designed 4-star luxury self-catered apartments and duplexes with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, thanks to large balconies or decked patios that provide a lovely place to enjoy the panoramic views from dawn til dusk. These spacious apartments are beautifully decorated, featuring high vaulted ceilings and excellent use of light and space, typical of the local architecture.
With this level of opulence, it would be understandable if you were to spend your entire break within the accommodation. However with so many local restaurants, bars and amazing activities it would be a shame to miss out.
For adventurous types, husky sledding or ice diving might appeal. The thrill of hurtling along behind a pack of enthusiastic huskies, or plunging into the ethereal depths of frozen Lake Montriond are once in a lifetime opportunities. Run by trained professionals, these activities are suitable for all ages as no previous experience is necessary. Truly unique, these activities give you the opportunity to see stunning sights, get your blood pumping, and try something new.
Spa and Relaxation
A holiday is designed for rest and rejuvenation, getting away from day to day stresses and busy work schedules. For those that like to be pampered, or to relax aching muscles after an adventurous activity, the Aiglon Spa provides a wide variety of facilities and treatments in lavish surroundings perfect for whiling the hours away and unwinding.
A large sauna, hammam and massage facilities for relaxation are complemented by physiotherapy, sports massage and pilates aimed at skiers and adventurers. These recovery facilities are provided by Mountain Rehab, a team of very experienced and widely respected Sports Physiotherapists who have been operating in Morzine since 2007.
As well as these, Yoga and one-on-one Personal Fitness Training are available, along with premium massage and beauty treatments from Indulge Massage & Beauty, bringing an award winning, first-class service to help you truly relax and unwind.
Indulge Massage and Beauty therapists are available for booking between 8.00am and 9.00pm and all other treatments are available from 8am – 10pm daily.
Swimming and Ice Skating
Amongst the hair-raising activities such as night sledging, ice diving, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, paragliding and helicopter rides, young families and non-skiers will also appreciate the more day-to-day activities available.
Morzine has the best swimming complex in the French Alps right on its doorstep - Aquariaz. Opened in 2012, this waterpark is made up of three different areas, each of which has been designed with different groups of bathers in mind. The Water Playhouse area of the park is great for young children, the Slidewinder (a huge aquatic halfpipe) and climbing wall will keep teenagers entertained for hours, while the luxurious spa centre, with 3 saunas and 2 steam baths, offers a welcome retreat for bruised and tired adults.
The indoor and outdoor skating rinks host a variety of events, from ice hockey matches to ice dancing. The rink is open to all - ice skating is a great activity for people young and old and a good way to hone those balance skills while off the mountain.
Always an enjoyable day trip, a variety of tours are offered if you fancy exploring further. Choose from a guided tour of the old town to discover the rich history of Morzine, a horse drawn sleigh ride or tours of the local dairy or why not try slate trade hubs for something a little different.
