Summer activity holidays in the Alps must be one of the best kept secrets in travel. For many people, the idea of the mountains in summer is just about walking holidays. Let us show you how wrong this is.
Francesca and Paul have been operating summer Mountain activity holidays since 1995 and have seen a massive boom in mountain biking holidays and a steady growth in family activity holidays.
Most people who live in Morzine all year round would admit to preferring the summer life to the winter skiing. Most came here originally for the skiing but found out very quickly that the best thing about the mountains is the year round activities and in summer with fantastic weather and masses of sports and activities right on the doorstep, there is not better place on earth for active, adventurous people.
Whether you are very sporty, moderately active or just want to relax in beautiful surroundings there really is something for everyone of all ages.
If you’re holidaying with small children, finding a resort that delivers in-chalet childcare, easy access to activities and plenty of entertainment for the parents can prove to be a challenge. We pride ourselves on providing families with the perfect environment to enjoy a relaxing and fun filled experience which cannot be found anywhere else. The intimate nature of our chalets and friendly, ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude from all our staff, has families coming back year on year.
We offer the flexibility for parents to do outdoor activities with their children and if parents wish to try some of the more extreme sports, there is crèche and kid’s club available for half or full days.
But it’s not all about the kids: after a day of activities, parents can come back to a sauna and massage before drinks in the bar or the outdoor jacuzzi. Foodies will be spoiled with the fine dining on offer - every evening the chalet chef cooks a delicious five-course dinner complete with canapés, coffee and chocolate.
And Chilly Powder’s location is perfect: with a ‘back garden’ that stretches right to the Swiss border, the tranquil area of Les Prodains means children can play safely away from busy roads with acres of meadows and lawn play area right on the doorstep.
