In the main summer season, the chairlift is open giving access to 400km of mountain bike trails and limitless alpine walking. Other summer activities in the valley and mountains include climbing, potholing, paragliding, canoeing and rafting. The recreational park of the 'Lac Bleu' situated down on the valley floor at the very centre of Morillon has a multitude of activities for every age including fishing, swimming, tennis, horse riding and petanque. Good tennis courts too in the village. Further up the valley are the stunning waterfalls of Sixt with many opportunities for walking close to the amazing chutes. Cycling enthusiasts have plenty of choice, whether it is gentle family biking along the valley floor to more serious road biking with plenty of scope for speed and climbs. The Grand Massif lifts are open for bikes in the summer but, even without the lifts, mountain bikers have lots of trail and mountain routes open to them. Bikes can be stored in the underground garage.


Car - Morillon is one of the closest ski resorts to the channel ports - driving time about 8 hours. A car is not needed for a winter holiday but is essential in summer. Just 65km or 1 hours drive from Geneva airport with taxi/car hire/bus transfer possible. Train - there is a regular train service from St Pancras via Paris/Lille to Geneva. Alternatively, you can take the Eurostar to Paris and then the TGV to Cluses. Transfers

can be booked please contact us for details.


The medieval town of Samoens with its impressive heritage is just 8km away. A further few km up the valley is Sixt Fer a Cheval, gateway to stunning and dramatic gorge and waterfall scenery. Chamonix Mont Blanc is just a 45min drive and the charming and stylish lakeside town of Annecy is about an hour's drive away. Excellent, surprisingly warm, swimming in the summer.

Further Details:

Good Sherpa supermarket and restaurants a sort walk away. Large Super U in Taninges- 15 min. and Carrefour on way to Samoens. Cash point in tourist office in Morillon village.
