MORILLON 1100, GRAND MASSIF. SUMMER ACTIVITIES

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Morillon 1100 - Morillon apartment

2 Bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 to 5

Built in 2005, the 2 to 5 bed apartment is in Morillon 1100, which is part of the Grand Massif ski area linking Morillon to Flaine, Les Carroz, Samoens, Sixt and Morillon village. It is on the ground floor of 'Les Hauts des Esserts' building, which is in Morillon 1100 (Les Esserts), and has free car parking. It is right next to the pistes and Nursery slopes, and only 75 metres from the Sairon chairlift which links with the Grand Massif lift system. There is one double bedroom, one small bedroom with bunk beds (sleep 2) and a sofa bed with a pull-out bed in the lounge. There is also a bathroom (with shower over the bath), separate toilet, kitchen area, balcony looking onto the nursery slope, and a ski locker. It is close to the Children's nursery and beginner's area. Within 200 metres are the lift pass office, ski shops, supermarket, bars, and restaurants. Morillon 1100 is directly linked to Morillon village, and is only 15 minutes drive from Samoens. More at www.ot-morillon.fr

Ski details: Morillon is the home of the 2006 Olympic Downhill Champion, Antoine Deneriaz. The Grand Massif lift pass covers 260 kilometres of pistes and covers Morillon/ Samoens/ Les Carroz and Flaine (including the famous 14 kms Cascade run from Flaine to Sixt). If you are based in Morillon 1100 there is no need to drive or take a bus (like you do in Samoens). You can ski door to door. Most of the runs are wide blues and reds through the trees, with easy access to Les Carroz and Samoens. The lift pass includes a days skiing in the Portes du Soleil via nearby Les Gets. Weekend or midweek breaks are available. There is an ESF ski school and Nursery, with a Jam Park with jumps and bumps. There is also a toboggan area. Torchlit descents and complimentary vin chaud are put on in High season. There are weekly markets in Morillon and Samoens. Other activities include Cross Country skiing in the Giffre valley, snowshoe walks and parapenting for the brave. Car hire is usually cheaper than taxis or buses.

Travel details: By Air. Geneva, Lyon and Chambery airports are nearby. Morillon is one hour's drive from Geneva on the A40 motorway. Car Hire (from the Swiss side) can be found on the discount websites. We have details of local transfer and taxi companies.

By Car. You can print an itinerary on the AA site by entering 'Calais/France to 74440/France'. A day's drive (850 km) from Calais or Zeebrugge avoids Paris as the Motorways run via Rheims, Troyes, Dijon, Macon and Geneva. Tolls cost about £50 each way.

By Bus. There is a service from Geneva Airport to Morillon and Samoens. Once in Morillon 1100 a car is not needed but might be useful for visiting the other resorts in the Giffre valley such as Samoens and Sixt, or to get to the Portes du Soleil resorts of Les Gets, Morzine and Avoriaz, or to the Chamonix valley .

Appartement pratique et convivial

Belle orientation qui permet de voir le le soleil se lever sur la montagne. La vue n'est pas sur les pistes principales, mais sur le haut de la piste débutant. Appartement de petite taille, très bien organisé.
Immeuble super calme et très bien situé au coeur de Morillon 1100: petit village d'altitude fait de grands "chalets" mais où tout se réalise à pied pendant le séjour.
A recommander.

The apartment was perfect for us, thank you!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was perfect for us because we had a 3year old who was learning to ski and going back to the apartment for breaks through out the day, was easy because it was so close to the nursery slope.

The apartment was warm, has a great shower and is conveniently located on the ground floor so you can easily slump and make yourself cosy in the apartment without too much effort.

Owner's Response: Thanks for that. Families with young children like being so close to the Nursery area.

Super Apartment, Friendly and Helpful Owners.

  • 5 out of 5
This is the third time we have stayed in this apartment, yes we think it is that good. It's close to all the slopes (you can almost 'ski in') and it really does overlook the nursery slope. The restuarants and shops are just a short walk away. Size wise we are a family of 2 adults and 2 children and there is plenty of room. The kitchen is well stocked with pots pans plates etc. There are a number of videos/dvd's to watch, books, games and some packs of cards.
The owners are brilliant and are very helpful, there is also a local contact available to help with immediate problems (we've met them but not had to use them)
We're looking forward to going again next year.......

Morillon 1100 Feb 2012

  • 5 out of 5
A really lovely apartment in a friendly and convenient village with a really picturesque ski area. Everything you could need for a family holiday is contained in the property and the location at the bottom of the slopes is ideal. We holidayed with two teenage children and found the mix of slopes a pleasure.....even at Feb Half Term, mainly uncrowded, with only the odd link run or lift as busy as you would expect. The local shops are few but give everything that you need with a well stocked supermarket, a delightful boulangerie and a friendly and pleasant pub in the Madison. Avoiding the cost of half term flights we chose to drive and found this simple with a stopover in Troyes, the Novotel seemingly taken over by families on a similar journey. Our fifth family, school holiday, ski week at different resorts and I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment or resort. I am only sorry that our boys are going on school ski trips next year and we are not planning to go as a family!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for that. It is true that even during high season weeks there are rarely queues in the Grand Massif area.

Home of the 2006 Olympic Downhill Champion, Morillon in the Grand Massif ski area is 1 hours drive from Geneva, or 2 hours from Chambery, and 20 minutes from the Geneva-Chamonix motorway . For skiers and snowboarders there are 260 kilometres of linked pistes on one lift pass. Morillon 1100 is a purpose built chalet style village linked by road, pistes and telecabine to the traditional village of Morillon. There is no need to drive to and from the lifts (as there is in Samoens), so you can ski to the apartment. Morillon 1100 has a Ski School (and Nursery), Ski hire shops, Restaurants, Bars, and a Supermarket. The old town of Samoens is 15 minutes drive away. The resorts of Flaine, Samoens, Les Carroz and Sixt are easily reached by blue and red ski runs. In the summer the lake and river offer a wide range of activities, including swimming, mountain biking, tennis, mini-golf, rafting, parapente, and golf. Lake Geneva and Chamonix are less than an hour away. Short breaks are available.

Other Activities: Snowboarding, parapente, river rafting, tree top zip wires.

Ski: The Grand Massif Ski area is one of the biggest in France. It has excellent lift and piste links between Morillon, Samoens, Les Carroz, Flaine and the famous 16 kilometer Cascade run from the top of flaine to Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval.

If you are based in Morillon 1100, there is no need to drive or take a bus to and from the lifts (as you do in Samoens). You can ski door to door. Most of the runs in Morillon are wide blues and reds through the trees ,with a Nursery area and Jam Park for the children. The slopes of Les Carroz are 1 lift away and it takes about half an hour to ski to Flaine or Samoens. The Grand Massif (hands free) lift pass covers all these areas and also includes a days skiing in nearby Les Gets, Morzine and the rest of the Portes de Soleil. Webcams show the whole Grand Massif area
