The 5-star luxury residences have fantastic views down the Morzine valley and give you the flexibility of self-catering with all the convenience, facilities and service of a 5-star hotel. Being right on the slopes, the ski in, ski out location is superb. You'll be flitting between relaxation and exhilaration in no time at all.
As well as the freedom having a self-catering apartment allows, you still have the fantastic facilities. The Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm can be accessed from each building via heated arcades. If you're not out in town making the most of the après then this is a fab place for a bit of relaxation. Heated indoor pool, steam room, sauna, sensory pool, outdoor hot tubs and cardio room. Not bad for an afternoon or two.
Five buildings make up the residences. Built from stone and red cedar, the interiors have a modern mountain style with a roaring fire in the lobby as well as a bar and two restaurants on site. There's even a bakery service you can pre-book to get fresh breads and pastries each morning if you fancy.

View on map
On the edge of Avoriaz 1800, Residence L'Amara is close to La Falaise district, a minute walk to the centre of town. The ski in, ski out location is perfect to get out on the slopes each day. Perched atop the cliff the views are sublime over the forest coated mountains.
