There are a handful of airports that service Morzine, but Geneva is by far the most popular choice for most of our guests. This is because the journey to Geneva to Morzine is only around 1 1/2 hours, which makes it one of the shortest transfer times available. This is particularly appealing for those travelling with children, on ski breaks and over busy holiday weeks, such as Christmas, New Year, Easter or school holidays.
Morzine’s culinary scene is booming and the village now boasts a wide range of eateries, from classic Alpine restaurants to trendy cafes and cosy apres-ski bars. The choice is sure to suit all tastes, with something for every budget too! To help you plan your ski break to Morzine, we’ve put together a fantastic guide to the village’s top dining spots, so you’ll know where to head for all your meals.
It is worth remembering that Morzine is located on the border between France and Switzerland, so if you are arriving from the UK it will be best to fly into Geneva Airport. This is because most of the big airlines operate direct flights, which means that you won’t have to pay extra for your ski gear on your return journey to the airport.
If you do decide to book a flight from one of the other airports that service Morzine (Lyon, Grenoble or Chambery), you will need to organise your own transfer to the resort. This can be expensive and time consuming. It is also a good idea to check with your accommodation that they offer a shuttle or transfer from the airport, as this will often work out cheaper and save you having to hire a car to get to the resort.
The train is becoming a more popular way to travel to a ski or summer mountain holiday and is an ideal option for those looking for a stress-free, environmentally friendly trip. The closest train stations to Morzine are Cluses and Thonon-les-Bains, which are both a short bus ride away from the resort. If you are planning on booking the train to Morzine, we would recommend that you try and book your tickets as early as possible. This is because trains to the mountains can sell out, especially during peak weeks and school holidays.
There are a number of companies that operate private transfers from the airport to Morzine. It is worth comparing prices and booking online as soon as possible, as most companies will be very busy during the winter season. It is also worth checking with your accommodation to see whether they offer a shuttle or transfer from the resort and if it is included in their package price.
If you are booking a private transfer, it is important to let your transport company know what flight you are arriving in and where you are staying in Morzine. This information will ensure that they can allocate you to the most efficient transfer and that someone is waiting for you at the airport when you arrive.
