Summer Activity Holidays
Experience The Alps in the Summer - We run our chalets in Montchavin - Lievre Blanc and Hermine on a self catered basis and also Chalet Nancroix or Barthelemy 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. Despite what people think about the mountains being cold the temperatures can rise to 30ºC during July and August, although you can escape the heat by simply going higher into the mountains.
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. 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.
