If you are a family and would like help organising your trip then we can do just that!
We have famillies that are now returning for their 13th winter with us and have many guests with babies and toddlers that find you can ski and have some fun in the snow with the kids too!
If you wish to book child care then we can help with this. There are a few options for you –
- We can arrange for a Cheeky Monkeys Childcare to come to the chalet and take over for you (they provide, toys, food and will take the kids out and meet you off the slopes if you wish) and are all English speaking fully qualified nanny’s.
- Alternatively you can book your kids into the local French creche ‘Outa’, close to the Pleney , which takes children from 3 months to 5yrs and have indoor and outdoor playtime. Our daughter goes to the resident part of this creche and it’s fantastic.
- For those who are too young for ski school but you would like to give them a taste of skiing then the Piou Piou Club is for you. For ages 3yrs – 14yrs centrally located at the base of the Pleney this club has a huge range of activities (edutainment and games to boost coordination, etc…) indoors or out according to the weather. They can also give your children lunch and a teatime snack.Ski lessons are given by ESF Morzine’s instructors in the safe snow garden where there are special slopes and play workshops for children aged 3 and over.
Ski school – this is a fantastic way for kids and adults to improve their skiing and we would always recommend beginners to book onto a ski school course. We can recommend which companies may work best for you and help you to book in advance.
Things to do –
- There is so much to do with children here in the winter aside from the skiing! We have sledges for you to take up the mountain for adults and kids….try the slopes at the bottom of the Pleney with cafes waiting with hot chocolate.
- Our lovely big sun deck gets the sun most of the day and is the perftect place for toddlers to play in the snow…there are snow toys and a wendy house for the kids to use.
- Take a walk along the Dereche in town where you will find beautiful woodland with a river and kids playground…a bit of a nature trail.
- Kids love the Merry-go-round in the town square and there is an outdoor ice rink here too.
- The tourist office has a small play area with toys and colouring things (also a changing table) if things get a little cold!
- There are kids wooden games/activities and entertainment on offer outside the Tourist office in the afternoons.
- The Aubergarde hotel next to the Piou Piou club has outdoor sofas for watching the kids sledge whilst you drink hot chocolate and also a kids room next to their bar with kids TV and lots of toys and games.
