The Rhone/French Alps region
In the Region of Mont Blanc, the Rhone Alps have some of the most beautiful tree lined runs and dramatic mountain landscapes you could hope for. The Restaurants are a joy to find and reasonably priced compared with the bigger named resorts. With the Farming Community producing the Beaufort Cheese and Local Produce, the Alpine Meadows and Barns are also kept in beautiful condition, which lends itself to completely uplifting Summer Hiking Holidays. A wonderful escape from the summer heat in cities, the climate averages 30 degrees in Summer and - 10 degrees in Winter. The winter skiing enjoys views of Mont Blanc and afternoon sun for the return ski home.
Hauteluce is a traditional French ski village just south east of les Saisies and is part of the Espace Diamant ski region.

In addition to this there are also 140kms of prepared trails for Nordic skiing and numerous walking paths and mountain bike trails.
