Local’s Recommendations For Winter in Morzine!

Planning a trip to Morzine this Winter? We decided to ask our members of staff at Alpine French School what they would recommend to a first time visitor to the area. As many of them have lived and worked in Morzine for years, they know the best spots to warm up with hot chocolate, night time activities with a difference and mountain lunches that will make your mouth water! Read on to find out our local’s advice for Morzine in Winter…


Natalie – English Teacher: “Take the free bus up to Lac Montriond in the morning to do a misty atmospheric walk around it followed by a hot chocolate. You can do night sledging from Avoriaz to the bottom of the prodains for a really different evening experience!”


Christelle – Directrice: “The Bec Jaune Brewery is great for a beer or drink of your choice after a day on the mountain, then snacks and a fun atmosphere at O’Chalet which is good for families. If you want to sit and enjoy the sun, then go to Le Coup de Coeur and enjoy their terrace and some food for lunch. For relaxing and to stretch out your sore muscles, take a class at the Morzine Yoga Studio.” 


Helen – Directrice: “For a delicious mountain lunch, I’d say Le Vaffieu at the top of Pléney. The best hot chocolate in the Portes du Soleil is at Les Alpages restaurant in Lindarets Village where they make their own hot chocolate, whipped cream and sprinkles! Then, if you can fit it in, dinner or apéro at the Dromonts hotel in Avoriaz.”


Liz – English Teacher:I’d recommend visiting Mont Caly (a beautiful area for walking and snow-shoeing) and having lunch at Les Chevrelles (a traditional Savoyard restaurant with views over Mont Blanc).”


Laure – Administration: “During your stay in Morzine you could visit the small cinema in the centre of the town, it shows French and English films and not many people know about this. Every Wednesday morning (TBC for 2023), the pisteurs (mountain safety professionals) allow you to go with them to ‘open the pistes’ and then take breakfast after, this is an amazing experience for your time in Morzine, you need to reserve it in advance!”
