Morzine has a fantastic mix of bars, restaurants, wine bars, cafes and clubs. Our perfect ski day would take in lunch in the Vaffieu, on the Morzine Ridge and aprés ski in the Crepu and Tibetan Cafe. On your hosts day off enjoy some bubbles at the Coup de Couer before dinner at a TG favourite l'Etale. Every night feels like the biggest of the week at the Cavern Bar and if you still have the energy, you can party into the early hours at Opera or Paradis. On the chalet hosts day off we are happy to recommend restaurants and make reservations. You could sample French specialities such as Raclette (melted local cheese with charcuterie and salad), Pierre Chaud (meat cooked on a hot stone), or French classic cheese fondue.
Maybe it’s just us but even after a great breakfast in your chalet, our thoughts turn to lunch round about, oh, first lifts! Luckily then that Morzine and its surrounding valleys have some of the best pit stops in the whole of the Alps. Whatever your budget there is something delicious just waiting to fix you up till one of TG Ski’s infamous afternoon tea cakes! Part of the fun of skiing is finding those hidden mountain gems for the best hot chocolate stop or the ultimate cheese feast. Our experienced team can make recommendations to suit your tastes, so please just ask, but here's a few of our favourites:
