Summer Activities

Spring and summer offer so much at The Retreat. Right on your doorstep the beautiful flora and fauna surround you. Stunning Lac Montriond is just a 10-minute walk away or a 5-minute drive takes you to the lovely goat village of Les Lindarets. There are some fantastic mountain walks taking you up to the breathtaking scenery at Le Col du Mines d’Or or to Mont Cherie with its magnificent views of Mont Blanc.

If you’re looking for extreme activities such as canyoning, hydrospeeding, rafting or downhill mountain biking, then you are in the right place. Or the more traditional activities of hiking, climbing and cycle touring are all available during your stay at The Retreat.

Morzine also boasts 13 tennis courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, an ice rink, two golf courses, an adventure park, summer luge, and a whole variety of summer pursuits.

Local sightseeing is excellent, including a trip to the world heritage site at Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, via the famous and spectacular Col de Joux Plane pass. Even closer to home, there are many places to visit such as the old abbey at Sean Jean d’Aulps, the cheese farms, slate mines, vineyards and Devil’s Gorge.

The Retreat is 30 minutes from Lake Geneva where a lazy day can be spent in some of the lovely towns along the coast of the lake. One such town is Yvoire, a medieval town where beautiful flowers adorn the lovely old streets, which lead to the town castle. Or try Evian with its spa, pro-golf course and fantastic 1920s casino. Further afield are the delights of Annecy and Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, both worthy of a day trip.
