Where is Morzine

Morzine is in the French Alps and is situated around the Portes du Soleil region. A short flight from London to Geneva followed by a quick 1-2 hour coach ride – I used Skiidy Gonzales which has the best view of Switzerland. You will have plenty of time to settle into your hotel – we recommend Hotel Neve, or even start your skiing adventures in the Alps! Not only is the journey quite short, but Morzine is nestled in the heart of ski resorts, local farms and even nightlife.
