Alpine Chalets

 

Alpine Hotels

Beautiful Luxury Chalets 

 

Alpine Hotels

Offering much the same as a hotel but on a more personal level: A chalet is great for guests to book privately or share with other likeminded alpinists. A chalet doesn’t just come with home-from-home comforts, but is better than home!

 

Our exclusive hotels are equipped with Active Reps, Kids Club, bike hire, activity equipment, entertainment and leisure facilities. They offer the perfect base for an adventure holiday for families, couples and thrill seekers.

Our Active Reps


An Active Rep is not a ‘Holiday Rep’ in the usual sense, but a specially trained and energetic professional who will ensure you make the most out of our mountain surroundings in helping you find the best bike and walking routes, orientate yourself around resort and help you plan your week and give advice on the many activities that are available and how to book extra excursions. 
Our Child Care Leaders are also on hand each day to keep kids actively entertained in sociable groups.

Active Kids Clubs (age 4-16yrs)

For 5-6 days a week we offer a free 
Active Kids Club for 4-16 year olds. It's a flexible drop-in club run from our main hotels. So whilst our Active Club Leaders keep the kids busy doing fun and sociable activities outdoors, parents are free to get some 'me-time' and enjoy an activity or two.

Any questions?

 

Our multi-activity holidays in France offer something for everyone - be it relaxation, adventure or culture tours.


Beautiful lakeWhat activities can I do?

There are numerous activities in every resort, around 80 different activities to choose from. All tastes are well catered for - from calm and tranquil to adrenaline busting, and for all ages. We also offer many free activities with enough exciting pursuits for your week away which are completely free and included within our package.


How fit do I need to be?

You don't have to be a regular athlete to enjoy our holidays! Far from it in fact. There are just as many energetic activities on offer as there are sights to see and cultural things to do. The walking, rafting, biking, climbing and canyoning to name but a few are ideally suited to beginners, and those with average fitness levels. Guides and instructors will help all ages for those activities that require it.

 

Family friendly holidaysAre activity holidays family friendly?


Picture

Families and couples love our welcoming and friendly atmosphere which makes it easy for everyone to have fun. We have a free Active Club in all our main hotels where our childcare staff will ensure your little ones are mixing with others and getting the most out of their stay. Many parents choose to join in with our Active Kids Clubs which run 5-6 days a week!

 

Will there be enough for us to do?

Alpine TrainA common statement among guests is that there is simply "too much to do in just one week". With so many activities on offer with our FREE Active Packs you will have more than enough for your week away. PLUS an array of other activities for kids, teenagers, adults, sightseers and adrenaline junkies which are available for a low cost in resort! 


Is there a set itinerary?

Not at all! After all you are on holiday... We give you a free bike to use and an Activity Multipass for access to the mountain facilities, culture sights and Lifts, so you are free to explore the resort: get out of bed when you want, do what you want and relax in your own time. The only set time is for dinner and each evening we serve a 3 or 4 course menu in our lovely, convivial alpine hotels.


Is the mountain biking for me?Mountain biking by lake

The great thing about all of our resorts is that not only do they have the best riding in the world, but they also have a huge network of beginner trails for ALL abilities. Green and blue bike trails run round each resort and even the famous downhill courses have 'chicken runs' for relative newbies to have a go*. Our resort staff will help you get started in resort and supply you with a map and clear guide of which areas of the mountain are best suited to you. 

* A chicken run can be found on many of the popular downhill tracks. They are easy routes around difficult sections, so that everyone can experience the thrill of Downhill mountainbiking. We do advise renting one of our pro bikes for downhill.

 

Alpine HotelWhat is an alpine hotel like?

An Alpine Hotel is much like a regular hotel but with a warm and friendly atmosphere, a central location in amongst beautiful surroundings with facilities to give you a great holiday: mountain bikes, pro bike hire, Activity Reps, Active Kids Clubs, sunny gardens, stunning views, Wi-fi, superb catering, and many have swimming pool, some have hot tub and even sauna!


What sort of weather should I expect?Picture

The French Alps would not make such a popular summer holiday destination if the weather wasn't hot! The Alps are quite southern in location and the ambient temperature is (on average) between 24C and 34C during July and August. In common with the Mountain we do get localised Thunder storms but rain is often short lived and quickly gives way to sun again. The hottest resorts are Tignes and Val d'siere which have very southern locations and up to 300 days sunshine a year! Make sure you bring lots of suncream because the weather at altitude can get very hot. 

 

What activities are included (for free)?

It changes slightly between resorts, but we aim to give you enough activities for your week away. Here's a taster of what to expect:


PicturePicture 3 or 6 day mountain bike hire
