Morzine is a charming, traditional Savoyard village with authentic wooden and stone chalets, right at the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area. The Hotel Champs Fleuris**** is centrally located in Morzine, at the foot of the ski slopes. Here you'll find a warm Savoyard welcome and everything you need for the perfect ski holiday.

Throughout the winter season, the Hotel Champs Fleuris**** provides various activities free of charge:

  • Covered heated swimming pool (28°C)

Each week, the Hotel Champs Fleuris**** organises:

  • A lunchtime raclette in a chalet on the ski slopes ('Raclette' is a traditional mountain cheese which is melted at the table and then poured over potatoes and cold meats - proper mountain food!)
  • A guided tour of the Portes du Soleil ski area (650 kilometres / 400 miles of ski pistes) with a fully quaiified local ski instructor.
  • A cheese fondue dinner with live music

Morzine is a beautiful, traditional town, with a charm not found in other purpose built ski resorts. You'll find gorgeous wood and stone architecture, in an immense tree lined valley. Take a break from skiing to wander the town, passing by a variety of shops (from ski stores, to shops selling hand made toys and furnishings); take in the weekly market; head to a chic bar or traditional café; and see the picturesque church, old bridge and chalets. There's also an open air ice skating rink, cinemas showing films in English, horse drawn sleigh rides, and a mini-train ride across town for children.

The main attraction, however, is the enormous Portes du Soleil ski area, with 650 kms of marked pistes. The Hotel Champs Fleuris**** is right next to the Pleney ski lift, so you have easy access to the snowboarding and skiing, and at the end of the day you can simply ski back down to the hotel. The gentle slopes surrounding the hotel make a perfect sledging spot for children.

Morzine also organizes plenty of events during the season. Women should look out for the new 'Morzine loves Women' week and music lovers won't want to miss the Rock the Pistes Festival.

Throughout the winter plenty of other activities are on offer in Morzine. Choose from snowshoe outings, husky dog sledding, hot air ballooning, ice diving, paragliding, ice-skating, snowmobiling or even watching the famous ice hockey team.
