Short Ski Breaks
Short breaks and ski weekends in the French Alps
Simply Morzine has been delivering the very best ski short breaks in France for over 20 years. We specialise in flexible midweek breaks and long ski weekends at our centrally-located and/or on piste ski accommodation in Morzine, French Alps. View our Midweek and Weekend short break offers & availability.
Our efficient programme is unique, well-established and immensely popular – allowing guests to enjoy our hotel or chalets with minimum time off work and maximum time on the mountain. Perhaps you don’t have time for a full weekly holiday in the French Alps or are considering an additional trip and only have a few days to spare. With Simply Morzine taking care of all pre-holiday and in-resort arrangements, a short ski break in Morzine could be the ideal solution. The minimum midweek break or long weekend stay is 3 nights.
Morzine/Avoriaz is quickly and easily accessible from the UK and Ireland, making the Portes du Soleil the perfect midweek short break or long weekend destination. The resort is just one hour 20 minutes from the gateway to the French Alps, Geneva airport. Our prices include return shared Geneva to Morzine airport transfers.
To guarantee swift access to and from the skiing, Simply Morzine also provide an efficient pre and post-skiing minibus shuttle service, should you not wish to walk or ski from your short break chalet, hotel or apartment.
Long weekend and midweek breaks at our Morzine hotel
The majority of Simply Morzine short breaks are accommodated at our charming small French hotel, Chalet-Hotel la Chaumiere or catered Chalet Madeleine. N.B. Short breaks are sometimes available at our other catered chalets, on request.
During the winter seasons we operate with a Sunday changeover. Short breaks must fit with this by arriving or departing on a Sunday, i.e. Sunday to Wednesday/Thursday or Wednesday/Thursday to a Sunday.
Situated below the piste and close to the resort centre, the delightful Chalet-Hotel la Chaumiere is owned and managed by our good friends Michele and Franck Blanchi. This chalet-style Morzine hotel has a personal and welcoming ‘home from home’ atmosphere. Relax with a drink in the comfortable bar/lounge or a swim in the small heated indoor/outdoor pool before enjoying a quality French evening meal in the hotel’s lovely restaurant. The location is one of the most sought-after in Morzine, just 25 metres from the piste, a 5 minute walk from the nearest lift and our partner ski shop and an easy 10 minute walk to the resort centre.
Short breaks at our ski chalets in Morzine
As an alternative to Chalet Hotel la Chaumiere, we can occasionally offer short ski breaks at our luxury catered chalets in Morzine. This can be individual ‘shared chalet’ bookings or larger groups taking exclusive occupancy.
For the 2016/17 winter season we have opened up Chalet Madeleine for short breaks.
Please contact us for further information regarding short breaks at the chalets.

Cost of long ski weekends
If staying over a Saturday night, our Simply Morzine short break prices include a weekend break supplement. This is to balance the immense demand for long weekends with alleviating the lost income due to possible empty rooms mid-week. Weekend breaks often mean that bedrooms may be empty beforehand and/or afterwards. Neither can we accept normal weekly bookings once bedrooms have been allocated to short breaks.
Midweek value: If you are able to avoid staying on a Saturday night (i.e. what we would class as a midweek booking) the price is significantly less because no weekend supplement is applicable.
Hotel short break restrictions: We can only offer short breaks at Chalet-Hotel la Chaumiere outside the peak French/UK school holiday season (i.e. not Xmas/New Year or the February holidays). The minimum stay is 3 nights. Short breaks are sometimes available throughout the season at our catered chalets. Please contact us for precise short break availability.
