Summer Activity Holidays

Summer Activity Holidays

Experience The Alps in the Summer - We run our chalets on self catered basis both in Montchavin and in the village of Peisey Nancroix, the gateway to the Vanoise National Park. 

During the summer, the snowy mountains take on a different beauty with the spectacular colours of the spring flowers and cascading waterfalls from the glacier as it melts. Often the temperatures can rise to 30ºC during July and August, although you can escape the heat by simply going higher into the mountains and enjoy the summer winds. From Spring onwards, the weather if changing quickly, it always remains glorious and perfect for activities challenges.

We can offer a holiday for the adrenaline junkie or for those who wish simply to unwind and relax with a group of friends or family, in fact we arrange Yoga retreat weeks from May till late in Autumn, please contact us for more details.
With mountain biking made easier by the trails which have been created and the connecting ski lifts as well as the option to use electric bikes, this is a great activity for the whole family.  You can hire all the protective gear too.

  • Hi, I am sorry its taken so long, but I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff. We loved the chalet. We had a fab time and could not have wished for more. Two very new skiers now hooked and one with rekindled passion. Thank you again Martin, Lou and James
  • Can you please pass on your thanks to your team, especially Kate and Loreen, for a great time we had. What a wonderfully spacious chalet in the lovely village, perfect for families. The food was perfect and plentiful, and the hosting was really friendly and relaxed. Many thanks Dominic, Janice and Murray Pearson
  • Thanks for a great week – your organisation was faultless with ski passes and lessons available as promised on arrival, the ski hire was so convenient being run “in house” and the quality met everyones requirements. Transfers were the easiest I have experienced in 30 years of skiing
