Very very easy holiday. Close to Geneva so no long transfers. Queues rare on the slopes and relatively large area at 265km sq. Great facilities for kids with nursery at Morillon and at Samoens (5 mins drive away) and several different ski schools. Igloo restaurant fabulous on the slopes at Morillon and really like La Table de Fifine at Samoens

Morillon consists of two parts - the small and quite picturesque village in the valley and Morillon 1100 (Les Esserts) which is a purpose built ski resort.There are two chair lifts which take you to the excellent Grand Massif area with links to Flaine, Samones and Les Carroz. There is a great green called Marvel back down to Morillon 1100 but by the end of our week it was patchy and breaking up badly. Bars and restaurants okay - La Combe does well because of its position at the bottom of the slopes but it is very expensive. We were a mixed group in terms of ages and ability and this was the perfect family resort. I would go back because the skiing is the best I've experienced but next time w

Skied all over Europe and this is perfect, quiet & unspoilt. Fabulous for family holidays. Very very rare to queue at the lifts and a huge ski area, good choice of restaurants at 1100 and 700 and 5 mins drive to Samoens if you need variety if you are staying for more than a week. Plenty of off piste right by the slopes so easy for all different levels to have fun close to each other. The old village is particularly characterful. Love the Igloo restaurant at the top of the mountain and the creperie in the old village at 700m.

It's great to see Morillon getting it's own slot. For those who like to get their skis on and off outside your accomodation, this is the best place in the Grand Massif. No Flaine-style queues and bottlenecks, no Samoens-style driving to and from the lifts. The 2 chair lifts at Morillon 1100 (also called Les Esserts) get you straight over to Les Carroz or towards Samoens and Flaine, and the large Gondola links with Morillon village in the valley below. Morillon 1100 has its own beginners and childrens areas, as well as the usual restaurants and bars.
