Phew What a Scorcher!

Having finally put the winter to bed we were so glad to welcome guests and friends back to Morin after the weirdest 18 months (Brexit, Covid, Covid again ..).

Hopefully its behind us all and we can look forward to some semblance of normal for a change!  Morin’s garden has taken a few knocks in the record breaking summer heat and the region’s watering ban. With some careful management and the very occasional rain storms at the end of August the container pool has seen us through to the last groups of a very busy summer which started early June and finished with the Mont Blanc rally in mid September. The grass is looking green once again –  a great relief all round.


Morin’s garden is not the only one showing new shoots – Olivia & Tony’s baby Milo arrived, just as brother Hector went off on his first MTB shotgun ride down from Super Morzine,  swiftly followed by his first day at nursery school!  Sumer here in the Alps has been rather full on – so much on offer for everyone – from the Spartan race, Tour de France, World Cup MTB in Les Gets and the Mont Blanc Rally.  But for those of us who just like the sheer freedom and freshness of the mountains there’s so much to do here at a more relaxing pace in the spring and summer months – some find it difficult to leave!

Now we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the winter wonderland that is Morzine and all the Portes du Soleil can offer, in the comfort of our family chalet.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
