For buying and selling property in Morillon

Famous for winter, but fabulous in summer too

Morillon, located in the northern Alps in the Grand Massif, is a village of great charm and tradition as well as an internationally renowned mountain resort for both summer and winter pursuits. The setting, high up in the French Alps, provides some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery in the country, whatever the time of year. In the summer there are acres of Alpine meadows to explore and tranquil lakes to enjoy, while in winter the snow-laden slopes around the resort offer some of France's best skiing.

A town of two parts

There are two parts to Morillon; the old town and the newer purpose built resort above, known as Morillon 1100, or Les Esserts. The old town is traditional in style and feel, with typical bourgeois houses now transformed into commercial premises, and like many old French villages, it is built around its church, the Church of St. Christopher. The resort consists mainly of luxurious chalets in typical Alpine style.

Family friendly

Morillon is known for its friendly approach to life and particularly to children. The resort of Les Esserts is a pedestrian zone, and children are positively welcomed and encouraged to join in the myriad activities laid on for their enjoyment. Whether you are a child or not, you will enjoy the torchlight processions, concerts, carnivals and other festivities which take place throughout the year. The different seasons offer a variety of activities, with winter snow sports and summer nature trails, tennis, and water sports in the crystal waters of the nearby lake, Le Lac Bleu. The resort also affords the unusual opportunity of experiencing mountain trekking with a pack donkey! Eating out is also a pleasure in Morillon, with some excellent restaurants offering superb family meals at very reasonable prices.

How to get there

By air: You can fly into Geneva airport (approximately one hour away) from the UK with several airlines, including budget airline easyJet. Lyon airport is around three hours drive away. By rail: Eurostar runs to Bourg St. Maurice from where you can travel by road to Geneva and on to Morillon.

Property prices in and around Morillon

Property in the French Alps is rarely the cheapest in the country, so if you are on a tight budget this may not be the ideal place for you! A long ski season and spectacular mountain scenery comes at a premium, but if you look carefully you will find that Morillon does offer some affordable apartments and is generally a little less expensive than the bigger and better known resorts such as Chamonix.
