Aire/Campsite:

 

Camping Le Solerey is situated in St. Jean d'Aulps about 7km along the valley from Morzine. Although the site is mainly occupied by caravans and fixed chalets there are usually three or four vacant plots for motorhomes.

The main chalet reception building has toilet and shower facilities on the lower floor, and has a good sized drying room with a washing machine and tumble dryer (charge approx €2 (2011)). There is free wifi and the possibility for 3A, 6A or 10A electrical hook up. (Price for 2011 was €15 for plot with 6A).

There is a bus stop right outside the campsite, and it's only 8 min. ride into Morzine at a cost of €1 per journey.

If you disembarque at the Montriond Eglise you can then catch the free ski bus to Ardent for quick access to Avoriaz. The journey time to Avoriaz centre is about 50 min.

 

Resort:

Saint Jean d'Aulps has it's own separate ski area which is reportedly good for families but with the whole Portes du Soleil just 8 min. bus ride away I didn't bother to try the local ski area.

 

Skiing:

The Portes du Soleil is too vast to describe here.
