Four Great reasons to stay in Montriond this summer

by 5 June, 2024

Discover why Montriond is the perfect base for your summer getaway in the Portes du Soleil this summer.

Access to Lac Montriond

The village of Montriond offers easy access to the beautiful Lac Montriond, a stunning mountain lake surrounded by lush greenery and towering peaks. Whether you’re looking to relax on the lakeshore or engage in water activities such as swimming, kayaking, or paddleboarding, Lac Montriond has something for everyone. The crystal-clear waters of the lake provide a refreshing escape from the summer heat, and the picturesque surroundings make it the perfect spot for a picnic, a leisurely stroll or a hike up to the waterfall (Cascade d’Ardent).

In addition to its natural beauty, Lac Montriond is also home to a variety of wildlife. Keep an eye out for birds, squirrels, and even the occasional deer as you explore the area. The lake is a popular spot for nature enthusiasts, photographers, and families alike, offering a peaceful and serene escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

If you’re travelling as a family then there are loads of great activities for children around the lake too, including pony rides, mini golf and a playground. There’s also a mini lake right next to the main lake, which has a sand pit on the waters edge and a shallow area for the kids to splash around in! There are three lakeside restaurants with lovely outdoor spaces and a lovely little snack bar too serving crêpes and ice creams, amongst other things. 

The charming village feel

Montriond exudes a charming village feel that captivates visitors time and time again. The small town square is bursting with vibrant flowers during the summer months and as a satellite village of Morzine, has the benefit of being much quieter while still offering great access to the main town. The village has a well stocked grocery store with bakery, a friendly local pub and a typical French bistro with pizzeria… Everything you need for a convenient self-catered holiday with family or friends.

The warm and welcoming atmosphere of Montriond is enhanced by the friendly locals, who are always ready to share stories and recommendations about the best places to visit in the area. Immerse yourself in the local culture by attending one of the village’s summer events, such as a traditional market or a live music performance. Whether you’re exploring the village or simply sitting back and soaking in the ambiance, Montriond’s charming village feel is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Brand new last summer, Montriond now boasts its very own brewery, taproom and restaurant… IBEX – The Wood Yard. This family-run brewery was founded in 2014 and has steadily grown a name for itself over the past decade, finally moving to its very own custom built site in 2023. We are so lucky to have this amazing venue right on our doorstep in Montriond, located just a short walk from the centre of the village. Make sure you check it out this summer!
