“We live in a neighbouring village to Morzine and had been looking for some land on which to build a family sized chalet for some time. One day whilst out walking around the village we came across this lovely red and white farm sporting an impressive carved shield on a wall next to a white ermine skin! We admired the unique character of the building and then continued with our walk and the quest to find our building plot. We were intrigued when visiting Morzine again several weeks later to see a “For Sale” board outside the farm, and so made an appointment to view the farm and just fell in love with the building. It hadn’t been our original intention to buy a property to renovate yet three visits and one negotiation later the farm was ours! We chose to name the property the “Refuge de L’Hermine” [the Ermine’s Refuge] as tribute to the story we were told by a neighbour explaining the history of the shield and the Ermine skin: a white ermine was being chased by hunting dogs and sought refuge in the old farm, where he ended up staying the whole winter at the farm, keeping the owner company.
A winter sporting paradise starts just minutes from your apartment ... Morzine is in the centre of the Portes du Soleil, making the neighbouring resorts of Les Gets and Avoriaz easily accessible. You can also ski in to Switzerland, but be warned, only the most accomplished skiers should tackle the Swiss Wall - a huge mogul field which is classified as an orange route - too hazardous for a black! But with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. The ski bus stops just 50m from La Terrasse, making this luxurious chalet the perfect base to discover the area. If you're not a skier, Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which are often host to ice hockey matches, and the local cinema often shows films in English. The more adventurous might like to try snowmobiling or ice-climbing on some of the area's frozen waterfalls, or discover the area in a more sedate manner on a sleigh ride. Other ways to have fun include snowshoeing and sledging, while the Indiana adventure park offers a variety of activities for all ages.
