Morzine is a pretty Alpine village with an international population and plenty of lovely, independently run chalets ideal for families looking for a traditional ski holiday. It also forms part of the enormous Portes du Soleil ski area, one of the largest in Europe.
Only just over an hour from Geneva Airport, Morzine is one of the easiest resorts to get to from a major airport. If you don't want to hire a car, there is a wide selection of well-priced private or shared minibus transfers to take you up to Morzine. Whilst there are one or two ski-in ski-out accommodations in Morzine, most families will choose to stay in the town centre. The free bus system connects most of the town to a variety of ski lifts so you will never have to walk too far.
Morzine makes for a great family holiday thanks to it's dedicated ski & play areas for children, top-notch children's ski schools, and a wide choice of accommodation for all budgets. It's a fairly flat resort so walking between your accommodation and ski school or the ski lifts is not too arduous - important when you are carrying more than one set of skis!

For a better selection of ski-in ski-out accommodation, the village of Les Gets has a super choice of charming chalets on the slopes. Combined with gentle beginner slopes and a special wild-west themed winter sports area (known as Le Grand Cry, or Indian Village) for children, it is also a great option for families.
Morzine is a great option for a summer holiday as well, particularly if you are a biking family. The Alps are very beautiful in summer with hot sunny days and cool nights, and plenty of activities and events to keep you occupied.
