Morzine is full of charm. It is a traditional Savoyard village packed full to the brim with character. Part of the extensive Portes du Soliel ski region, it is your ideal ski destination. The layout of the resort is such that you can ski straight from your accommodation doorstep. A lot of the ski accommodation Morzine has to offer are hotels and large chalet style lodges that reflect the he traditional alpine semblance.
In the Portes du Soliel, Morzine is the biggest and arguably the most beautiful village to stay in the region. Originally a rural market village, it also began to thrive from slate mining but the growth of the tour and leisure industry slowly began to transform the local economy. It became a summer attraction after the opening of the Grand Hotel by the owner Francois Baud. This was a welcome development to the area which was beginning to see a decline in its agricultural and slate mining industry. After the construction of the Pleney cable car in Morzine, skiers began to search for higher altitudes and this is where the wheel became set in motion for the area. Fast forward to the early 1960’s where the Avoriaz cable card and the Nylon cable cars were constructed and winner of the Winter Olympics, Jean Vuarnet, was made the director in charge of creating a ski resort in the area and he set about his vision of creating a traditional alpine style resort. The vision was a mix of the traditional Savoyard architecture with the natural surroundings of the alps. The idea was also to create a resort that connected its visitors effortlessly to the pistes as well as the local amenities of shops and restaurants in an eco-friendly, decongested vehicle free environment.
The Portes du Soliel has been successful in blending the best of both worlds, traditional and modern, contemporary and still yet renaissance. The village layout (not just the pistes) is purpose built to suit skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels and pedestrians who are visiting for other activities. That being said, let's dive into what Morzine has to offer you; at Erna Low, we have carefully selected and put together a varied choice of accommodation.
Ski Chalets in Morzine
Jean Vuanets' vision of the accommodation in Morzine and the Portes du Soliel strayed from the idea of little chalets and instead favored a shift in ideas towards larger chalet style hotels and lodges with bigger spaces and interiors. It is not a complete shift however, as the accommodations still have some chalet inspired designs blended with modern contemporary lodging. This is evident as some of the designs of the hotels and apartment lodgings still maintain the traditional Savoyard wood and stone features that allows the village to aesthetically maintain its character, whilst still having a cosy chalet atmosphere when inside.
