The information and prices shown in our brochure/web may have changed by the time you come to book your accommodation.

You must therefore ensure you check all details of your accommodation (including the price) at the time of booking.

However no down-time of any of the above will constitute any refunds if circumstances are outside our contract means or ability. In addition the speed of the WiFi connections in the Alps is very poor compared to the UK and so it is unlikely that you will be able to all stream or download films or large documents etc. If WiFi is important to you we strongly suggest that you have an alternative connection e.g. a 4G connection as we cannot guarantee the speed or availability of our connections.
These conditions and any contract to which they apply are governed in all respects by English Law.

The largest, and arguably best positioned of the Portes de Soleil resorts, Morzine offers easy access to both Les Gets, Avoriaz and all 600km of pistes. It is perhaps more of a wonderful traditional French town than a ski resort, but its ambiance and welcome is absolutely second to none.
Do not be fooled by its 1000m altitude – it benefits from the Mont Blanc micro-climate, resulting in excellent skiing even at lower levels. With a multitude of bars and restaurants, it is a super option for those looking for a bit of everything.
