Summer Activity Holidays

Summer Activity Holidays - Experience the Alps in the Summer!

During the summer, the snowy mountains thaw out to take on a different beauty with the spectacular colours of spring flowers and cascading waterfalls from the melting glacier taing centre stage. Temperatures can rise to 30ºC during July and August, but you can escape the heat by simply going higher into the mountains and enjoy the summer winds....or simply sitting in the shade on the terrace of chalet Caribou while enjoying a drink or three. The weather remains almost constantly glorious so is perfect for all the activities the region has to offer.

We can help find excitement for the adrenaline junkie or recommend spa treatments and shops for those who wish simply to unwind and relax with a group of friends or family.

  • "Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay last week. We absolutely loved the chalet, great location! Also wanted to mention how incredible Rosie and Jake were, the food was outstanding and both were brilliant with our son Arlo. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about coming back in Feb / March." (Ali Bovis, Caribou, Dec 2019)
  • “I can tell you on behalf of the group that we had an excellent stay and were extremely well looked after by Cat and Clive. They were very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. The chalets are perfectly positioned for the skiing and village, plus very well appointed. We have had a boys January week in Montchavin every year for the last 10+ and will no doubt be returning in 2021. I will most certainly contact you in the autumn to discuss the next trip.” (Martyn Pacey, Hermine, Jan 2020)
  • “We had a fantastic time. Really couldn’t have asked for better. Pat and Pete were fantastic hosts, and really looked after our every need. They were great to have around; they provided a wealth of knowledge on the area and where to ski and were only too happy to answer our million questions pertaining to every other aspect of skiing in Montchavin. The food was of a great standard, and we honestly enjoyed (aka loved) every meal. The chalet was really nice and clean. This experience was certainly one of our best ski trips ever.” (Tessa Kershaw, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful chalet. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montchavin, and in your apartment with Pete and Pat. Pete and Pat were awesome, and the food was superb. We had a great time, and will spread the word this side. (Chris Cooke, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • We had the most amazing week at Christmas this year. The chalet was great, the other guests were brilliant company, the skiing was awesome, the food was fabulous and Pete and Pat were the perfect hosts.
