Mountain holidays aren't just restricted to skiing and snowboarding in winter - Summer bring plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
Mountain biking, hiking, lake swimming and watersports are among the opportunities for the energetic. Or if you're after a more sedate break, then there are lakeside beaches to relax on, flora and fauna for nature lovers, or just enjoy the fresh mountain air and the stunning scenery.
Have a break from the coast this summer and head for the mountains...

Thank you for your kind comments regarding Chalet Ardoisiere and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We honestly would prefer not to charge separately for the cleaning but there are VAT implications in including the charge in the rent. Chalets Marketing Limited is a UK company and it is the owners who look after the properties and arrange the cleaning in France. We do hope to welcome you back to Avoriaz Chalets.
