So, we’ve put together the following questions and answers to get you thinking…
Accommodation in Morzine: Location, location, location – reality or myth?
Q: Does my ski accommodation need to be in the best location in Morzine?
A: Remember, this is what most people want from their holiday – and Morzine is in big demand. The key here is to book your accommodation early, especially during peak winter dates and school holidays.
Q: Does my Morzine accommodation have to be the resort centre?
A: If your answer is ‘yes’, then think about where in the centre of Morzine your accommodation should be located. For example, do you want to be accommodated next to the Pleney or Super Morzine ski lifts? Or would you rather be close to the bars, shops and restaurants? What about the Morzine indoor swimming pool? We recommend taking the time to research the amenities you would like your accommodation in Morzine to be near to.
Q: I’d like to be able to ski in and ski out of my Morzine accommodation. Is this possible?
A: Staying on the piste is most people’s idea of the perfect ski accommodation. If this is also yours, you need to be searching for properties on the Pleney side of Morzine, as this is where it’s possible to ski back to the village. Just bear in mind that on piste accommodation in Morzine is fairly rare, with the lifts being easy to access in any case.
Q: What should I do if I can’t get my first choice accommodation in central Morzine?
A: Don’t worry! Morzine is a fairly spread out ski resort, so this should not be a concern – especially if your chalet company provides shuttles around the resort from their accommodations. If so, it is problem solved!
