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...

It's a real shame that you weren't more honest when you booked, you lead us to believe it would be just a small gathering of friends, when in fact you had in excess of 30 people staying at the barn .
The barn was left immaculate on check in and all damages clearly marked and signed for, unfortunately on checkout it was discovered that you had not treated the barn with respect that we would normally expect from guests ,all areas of damage were bought to your attention prior to checking out, these include a beanbag with red wine soaked through, which you tryed to conceal by turning it over . A large pillow with a cigarette burn through the middle (it's a none smoking barn) again which you tried to conceal by putting at the bottom of the cushion pile.
Two areas where red wine had been spilt down the walls and onto the floor no one had made any effort to clean up this caused both wall and floor to have deep red stains,there were pieces of glass all over the floors.
The wooden floor was black where people spilt drinks and continue to dance on the floor without cleaning it up , The kitchen floor was so sticky that the cleaners took 3 hours to get back to normal,someone was sick in the main bathroom all over the toilet and around the shower , that's probably why it smelled so bad , the ash from the fireplace was everywhere.
And you wonder why you lost your deposit!!!
We spent in excess of £600 getting the barn ready for the next guests , not including the cost of my time your deposit was only £350 ,I find it unbelievable that you feel justified in using TripAdvisor to try to give people impression that we are unreasonable people , i'm sure if I came round your house And treated it the same way I would've been thrown out.
I think there should be a TripAdvisor for holiday home owners , to warn other owners of potential bad guess .
