    Additional Location Information
    Morzine is situated in the centre of the Portes du Soleil region of the French Savoie Alps, half way between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, astride the French-Swiss border.

    The Retreat is just 4 minutes away from Morzine town centre. Morzine is a typical Savoyard mountain town with a lovely combination of markets, bars, cafes and of course, a range of great contemporary and traditional restaurants.

    As well as all the fantastic activities that are on offer locally (see ‘Activities’ section), there is also a wide choice of popular day trips. We have a detailed knowledge of Morzine and the surrounding area and will be happy to help you plan your day.

    Morzine is an excellent base from which to explore the Haute-Savoie region of France and the Valais region of Switzerland. Lake Geneva is only 30 minutes away.
