The Retreat is located in Le Lavanchy, a beautiful hamlet of Montriond, just 4 minutes from picturesque Morzine and a convenient hour’s drive from Geneva airport. In the Northern Alps, on the French side of the French-Swiss border, nestled between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, it is perfectly positioned for both winter sports and summer holidays.
Winter at The Retreat
Not only does The Retreat offer a peaceful rural setting on the doorstep of Morzine, it also boasts an enviable location on the route up to Ardent, our highly recommended access point into the heart of the Portes-du-Soleil ski region. Those “in-the-know” tend to avoid the Morzine lifts to access the ski slopes and head for Ardent. This preferred entry point skips the long haul from Morzine, and takes you directly into the Les Linderets bowl with it’s many restaurants, ski school, nursery slope and lifts off in all directions. This is a perfect rendezvous point for skiers and non-skiers alike with access to the gorgeous snow-bound village of Les Linderets.
Summer at The Retreat
The Retreat provides an idyllic and tranquil setting in the summer, a true retreat for the senses. The garden is the prefect place to relax and soak up the sun or enjoy some al fresco dining. But follow the river that runs past the bottom of the garden and within 10 minutes you are at beautiful Lac Montriond with lakeside restaurants, pony riding, go-karting and various water sports, including a sectioned off part of the lake used as a swimming pool, complete with lifeguard.
