The Best of the Alps

By Linda Tancs

The Portes du Soleil is regarded as the largest international ski area in Europe, spanning both France and Switzerland. Some consider the region to encompass the best of the Alps, from picturesque hamlets to bustling resorts. One of those jewels is Morzine, a pretty Alpine town bordering Switzerland. Just over an hour from Geneva airport, the town is linked not only to neighboring Avoriaz and Les Gets and the Portes du Soleil ski area but also to delectable cuisine beyond the oft-anticipated stodgy saucepan of fondue. Local specialties include cheeses of Abondance and Beaufort and féra, a tasty regional whitefish. But of course no French town would be complete without a bakery, one of the most popular being Boulangerie Tavernier with its artisanal chocolates, pastries and cakes.
