October 29th, 2009 by Sam in Chalets
Well as you know we have just launched Apartment Central which is our new luxury self catered apartment in Morzine. The good news is, we have decided to offer free airport transfers to and from Geneva as part of the price for a weekly stay for up to 6 people for any bookings made before 20th December!*
So, for example, you choose one of our weeks in January priced at only €1600 Euros and you can stay in More Mountain style and luxury for less than €270 Euros per person. Now that’s what we call bloody great value for money right in the centre of Morzine!
Plus we have also added a Nintendo Wii to the chalet seeing as we can’t be there every night to entertain you!
Happy days…. Self Catering just got even better with More Mountain Morzine!
Snow is expected early this year. The spiders are coming in and the onion skins are thick!
This winter we are offering a pre christmas special for you early birds that fancy a snow fix or pre Christmas shred prior to the season kicking off!
From Sunday 13th December until Sunday 20th December 2009
Stay at one of our luxury chalets for £449 for the week including your food, wine and transfer….it doesn’t get much better than that!
October 14th, 2009 by Sam in Tour De France
The 2010 Tour de France route has been unveiled today (Wednesday) at the Palais des Congrès in Paris.
The 97th Tour de France runs from Saturday July 3rd to Sunday July 25th 2010. This year, the Tour de France will cover a total distance of 3,600 kilometres and Morzine Avoriaz will play a big part in the route. History speaks for itself…Morzine Avoriaz and the Tour have enjoyed a solid alliance since 1975 – this will be the Tour’s twenty fourth visit to the resort, and will include a rest day to boot!
Morzine is confirmed as official stopover and rest day on 11th & 12th July 2010.
The route is one of the hilliest in years. Starting in Rotterdam the route takes the riders down through Belgium before crossing back over in to Reims in France and then into Morzine for the first of two stopovers en route to the final destination of Paris Champs-Élysées on Sunday 25th July.
The stages in Morzine Avoriaz will run from the Jura Mountains to the Alps… From Saturday 10th July the pack will encounter some steep challenges and on Sunday 11th it will be the first real contact with high mountain peaks where they will arrive in Morzine Avoriaz. Rarely climbed – twice only – the Ramaz pass sits at an alt. of 1615m, 40km from the high 1800 altitude finish in Avoriaz, which was last visited by the Tour sixteen years ago.
At the end of the 1970s, Avoriaz, the high-altitude ski resort that is part of the town of Morzine, specialised in hosting hill climb time-trials at 1,800 metres altitude. In 1985 Lucho Herrera was the first to reach the “Gateway to the Sun” in a stage similar to the one planned for this year’s riders.
With four climbs on the programme, this will be the major alpine stage, following the first rest day in Morzine village. The stage will start in Haute-Savoie then, after a climb to the Colombière mountain pass, cross the border into Savoie and the Aravis pass, followed by the Saisies pass. The final and most gruelling challenge will be the Madeleine pass that lies thirty kilometres from the finish in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne.
More Mountain have finally launched a lighter “credit crunch” option for the more cost conscious this winter with the introduction of their new central Morzine self catered apartment “Apartment Central”.
Sam and Jon have designed a luxury city style 2 bedroom pad within staggering distance of Bar Robinson, Dixie Bar and new top quality take away “Mamas” aswell as the local supermarket. Its perfect for those of you in smaller groups wanting to be in the centre of town close to all the action. Prices start from just €1300 Euros for the week for up to 6 people sharing.
We believe if you choose self catering, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on home comforts. Apartment Central features 2 luxury bedrooms with modern bathrooms, large balconies, spacious lounge area, fully equipped kitchen diner and loads of mod cons.
The stylish and sexy modern interior comes with all the usual More Mountain extras like flatscreen TV, Free WifI, SkyTV, DVD Player, Bose iPod Dock, luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen and L’Occitane Toiletries.
The Apartment features a large lounge area with squidgy velvet corner sofa, which converts into a good quality sofa bed, 2 armchairs, plenty of space for 6 people, loads of storage and underfloor heating throughout to keep you cosy and warm on those winter evenings.
You can kick back and watch your favourite TV channels as we have SkyTV or listen to your iPod on the Bose sound system. Large floor to ceiling windows slide open onto wrap around balconies which lead to a huge terrace, great for enjoying a glass of vino whilst you watch the sun set!
The kitchen diner comes fully equipped with seating for 6 people around a sociable oak dining table. Appliances include dishwasher, integrated fridge freezer and oven with gas hob, kettle and toaster and plenty of workspace.
