Overview of Morillon

Morillon is a traditional French alpine village located in the Grand Massif ski area (265km of pisted runs) neighboured by Flaine and the villages of Les Carroz, Samoëns, and Sixt. It’s quaint, quiet and ideal for a family ski holiday.

A little way up the mountain at 1100m sits Morillon Les Esserts, the more purpose-built resort village with some slopeside accommodation. But the original village of Morillon at 700m is much more idyllic, built around a church from the 16th century, and featuring a handful of restaurants, bars and shops. It has all you need without any unnecessary excesses..

3 Things We Love About Morillon

  1. Part of the Grand Massif ski area so LOADS of skiing, including in Flaine
  2. Just over 70km from Geneva Airport so transfers can be as quick as 1 hour
  3. The choice of staying in a traditional alpine village or a more modern purpose-built resort village
