About Kevin Porter

Hi, My wife and I have been returning to Morzine for over 10 years and finally in 2006 decided to take the plunge and purchase an apartment. We regularly use the apartment ourselves in both summer and winter months and never get tired of all the activities on offer. The apartment wasn't our only addition in 2006 as our daughter was also born that year. She's now 9 and loves Morzine and "our home in France" She has already been on the parc adventure and loves horse riding around the lake in Les Gets and in Morzine.

Kevin Porter purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Kevin Porter chose Portes du Soleil area

Morzine and the surroundings areas really do have it all. The Portes Du Soleil is one of the largest ski areas in the world. We have been skiing here every year for over 10 years and still haven't managed to ski all of it. During the summer months the mountains are stunning and if your lucky enough to be in the village when "le tour" passes through then the place is really buzzing.

There are plenty of activities for both adults and children in both the Winter and Summer months. Or you can simply relax on the balcony watching the world and the parascenders float by.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment was a great attraction to us as it only takes 5 minutes to walk in to the center of town and is just far enough away from the hustle of the town center. The apartment itself is on the top floor with a balcony offering stunning views of Morzine itself, which really sold it to us. As we regularly use the apartment ourselves we try and have all the facilities that one would expect in an apartment and try to keep it as homely and comfortable as possible.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Although there is no beach as such near by in the summer months there are two lakes close by. The first of which is in Les Gets and the second just above Montriond. Both are excellent for swimming and bathing. We are also only 30mins drive to Lac Lemen (Lake Geneva) where there are small beaches and water activities.

Travel:

The closet airport is Geneva which is approximately 1hr 15mins away. Lyon and Grenoble Airport are a two hour drive as is Chambery Airport.

Calais is an 8/9 hour steady drive.

Car hire recommended in summer for sightseeing but not essential. Transfers readily available in winter and car hire not necessary.

Further Details:

The village of Morzine itself is no more than 5 minutes walk down the hill. It takes slightly longer walking back. One of the supermarkets is within 5 mins walking distance at the bottom of the road. Morzine itself offers a full range of activities from the relaxing to the extreme. Morzine also provides a perfect base for sightseeing around the area when the weather is suitable. Please visit the tourist office for a full list of places to see and visit.
