What a gem of a place Morzine is! It's a lovely Savoyarde town with an authentic Alpine feel, perfectly situated in the huge Portes du Soleil ski area - one of 12 resorts, in fact. That gives you a good idea of the scale of the region and the opportunities for skiers and snowboarders - and some.

Portes du Soleil spans the French-Swiss border so you could easily pop across to Morgins and Champéry, or stay in France all the time, with easy access to Châtel and Les Gets, or Avoriaz if you like to be challenged.

Top marks to Morzine for beginners and intermediates, with plenty of gentle runs. Top marks, too, for snowboarders and advanced skiers, with breathtaking off-piste options and lifts taking you right up there so you can start your free-styling without a hike. Fun and challenges for everyone. Favoured by self-drive visitors. Top marks all round then!

Set in a picturesque valley, its streets lined with chalets, Morzine is lovely to wander around for non-skiers and après-skiers alike. There are shops, bars, cafés and restaurants galore - don't forget to pop into the bustling Rhodos Bar or Bar Robinson (known as Robbos) or the very popular Tibetan Bar. There are plenty of venues to choose from for every taste - especially if you've a yen for a glass of Mutzig a real beer of distinction.

What with helicopter sightseeing tours, luxury spa treatments, snow-shoeing, paragliding, night-sledging, speed-riding…need we say more?
