Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Well Morzine might just be exactly what you’re looking for! With one of the largest connected ski areas in the world, a huge variety of fantastic bars and restaurants AND plenty of Christmas themed activities and events for all the family, why would you go anywhere else? In this blog we will reveal all that Morzine has to offer at Christmas time, and why you should make it your very own winter wonderland.
Morzine Christmas Village
For the last two weeks of the year Morzine is transformed into an enchanted village for the whole family! It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate Christmas amidst snow covered trees, chocolate box chalets and festive lights, all whilst surrounded by a magical festive atmosphere! Throughout this period there is also plenty of animation, activities and events to keep the whole family entertained including ice skating, music, parades and games. Maybe even a visit from the man in red himself!
This is when the French traditionally celebrate their Christmas, and the gift giving and meal take place. As a result you can expect there to be a lot going on in the town! Alongside all the activities and shows you can also enjoy the tremendous fireworks display which is launched from the Pleney slope in full view of the whole town, although from properties such as HIbou and Chouette you will have front row seats from your balcony!
Christmas Day ushers in yet more celebrations and festivities, after the Christmas morning ski of course! In the afternoon the party continues with more parades, music and animation to entertain the whole family. After a full day of fun it will be time for your Christmas dinner, and Morzine is by no means short of options! If you aren’t staying in one of our catered properties, here are a few of our favourites:

This enchanted night walk has been a hit with tourists and locals alike since it arrived in Les Gets! You are invited to setoff along the path of a travelling music maker and his hot air balloon, and follow his incredible journey beyond the mountains! This 1km pathway of storytelling through light, music, imagery, set design and interactivity will undoubtedly be a hit with all of the family! Prepare yourself for an amazing experience where music is seen and light can be heard!
