YOUR HOMESTAY FRENCH IMMERSION IN MORZINE, HAUTE-SAVOIE
Morzine is an international ski resort, but it is also an authentic mountain village with typical chalets. It is the perfect destination for active holidays or rejuvenating holidays in nature. But it is also a great starting point to visit several famous cities such as Geneva, Annecy or Evian. I will be more than happy to show you this unique environment made of nature and culture.
Hosting students is a real choice and joy of life. My family and I love meeting new people, having the opportunity to travel through their stories, and share with them our lifestyle.
Our authentic eco-friendly chalet is 3 km away from Morzine, in the typical alpine village of Essert-Romand. The location is perfect to enjoy the lively resort but return to quiet each day to relax and focus on your studies. You will stay in a comfortable private ensuite bedroom (double bed + bathroom with shower and toilets) with a balcony providing a stunning mountain view! I will be your teacher, but you will have many opportunities to practice your French with my partner Fred, and my children Anna and Antoine. We also have a small sociable dog Nouki, and 4 chickens, which means fresh eggs !!!! We don’t smoke, but you are allowed to smoke on our sunny terrace, in the garden or on your balcony.
We will share the meals. Fred is a chef, so he will cook us delicious dinners and if you wish you can assist him and maybe get 2 or 3 good tips !
During your stay, we will go to the market and to the farms to buy local products.

Fred and I will be your guides to discover Morzine, a traditional mountain village, its ski resort, its summits with stunning views, and its rich History. Here we have very different seasons and weather, but it is always fascinating. In the winter, Morzine offers the possibility to ski in one of the largest European ski resorts (650 km of pistes in a Swiss-French area) or to walk or snowshoe in nature. In spring and summer, all levels can hike, or try a mountain activity such as MTB, paragliding, climbing, or water sports. But you can also opt for a rejuvenating stay and contemplate nature or be part of a pilates, yoga or mediation session.
Morzine is also well located to visit many well-known cities. Geneva is only 60km away and it is a very cosmopolitan city and headquarters of the UNO. Annecy is called ‘The Venice of the Alps ‘ and is 80km away; its old city is very pleasant to walk year round. It is also a good destination for some shopping! Evian-les-Bains, well-known for its water company, is a very interesting city to discover on a guided tour. It was one of the most popular holiday destinations in the 19th century for its thermal spas, and possesses several impressive buildings of this period.
You may like sports, nature or culture, Morzine and its surroundings offer enough activities and visits to satisfy everyone! There are so many things to do and to see that it won’t be possible to do it all in one stay, so we will set up a program together according to your desires. We want this immersion stay to be an unforgettable experience!
