Morillon & Morillon 1100

Morillon is a charming Savoyard village built around a 16th century church in the beautiful Giffre Valley.

It manages to retain its individual character as a small resort much loved by generations of French families. Morillon holds the official 'Famille Plus Montagne' label for its superb children’s facilities. We warmly recommend the 'Village des Enfants', which cares for skiing and non-skiing children aged between 6 months and 8 years.

In Morillon there are weekly torchlight descents, concerts, wine and food tasting, and a variety of activities for children - all part of an extensive winter programme of entertainment. Value-for-money restaurants make eating out a pleasure while a local ‘traiteur’ (deli) produces first class regional food to take away.

Morillon 1100 (also known as Les Esserts), is a purpose-built resort above Morillon village and is very much a pedestrianised, family-friendly resort. Morillon 1100 offers visitors a small selection of restaurants and bars, a few shops and a mini-supermarket. The ’Village des Enfants’ children’s facility is based at Les Esserts.

Verchaix is in the middle of the Haute-Savoie, on a sunny slope overlooking the Giffre Valley and Morillon Village. It has good road links to Annecy, Geneva and Chamonix. Verchaix’s attractive traditional hamlets feature a rich variety of country cottages, farms, chalets and positively exude Savoyard charm!

Morillon is only 35 miles (1 hour) from Geneva airport and a 15-minute drive from the motorway exit and TGV train terminal at Cluses.
