Large kitchen. Study/bedroom 4. Sitting room that overlooks the garden. Summer kitchen/laundry room. 2 shower rooms. 2 separate toilets. Wooden stairs up to:

The garden is flat and gets the sun all day long. At the front of the property there is parking for several vehicles. La Vernaz is a tranquil village nestled into the hills in between Thonon-les-Bains 15km and Morzine 19km. So it’s the best of worlds for the winter skiing and all the summer activities down on the lake. In the heart of the village the communal church that dates from the 17th Century is being restored and it has a magnificent new roof. The international airport of Geneva is 54km away and it takes just over an hour by car.
Portes du Soleil Ski Area
600 km of skiing in 2 countries making the Portes du Soleil the biggest international ski area in the world.
Here skiing is a journey, with different panoramas and routes to look forward to every day, and each of our 12 village resorts offering a charm of their own.
The resorts are amongst the most well known, including Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets, Abondance, Chatel and St Jean D’Aulps to name but a few.
They also offer excellent opportunities for downhill mountain bikers outside the winter months.
As a popular holiday destination in both summer and winter, these resorts offer investment potential. So whether you are looking for a quiet and peaceful family resort (Chatel or St Jean D'Aulps for example) or something a little more lively (Morzine) the Portes du Soleil has it all.
Within easy distance of the International Airport at Geneva plus close to Lake Geneva, this ski area is the perfect destination.
Morzine Ski Resort
Situated mid-way between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, the ever popular resort of Morzine is absolutely stunning, well known for its Alpine scenery, nestled between forests and summits. Life is leisurely, and the village although vibrant and bustling has lost nothing of its original charm and Savoyard way of life. Ideally situated right in the middle of the Portes du Soleil, Morzine is the gateway to a marvellous winter playground of 650 km of ski-slopes where you can ski from French into Switzerland and back again all in one day. When it comes to lunchtime you are spoilt for choice with all the mountain restaurants scattered everywhere.
In summer, these slopes become sign-posted footpaths for trekking and moutain biking. Originally life in Morzine was one of agriculture and slate-mines but with the opening of the ‘Grand Hotel’ (first tourist hotel built in the 1920’s) and its owner François Baud opened up a new opportunities for the village and it’s in habitants. Then in 1934 the Pleney cable car was opened and the thick covering of snow started some previously unknown sports: tobogganing, ski-jöring (towed behind a horse), the beginnings of downhill skiing and even ski-jumping!
If ski or snow boarding instruction is the order of the day there are avariety of French and English speaking Instructors in the ski schools.
There is a vast array of shops, bars and restaurants, offering plenty to non-skiers as well and for after ski fun. This makes Morzine a good all year round resot for those who live here and those with Holiday homes.
