Summer holidays in Chatel, Portes du Soleil, France: Susie Ward, Alpine Holidays


Summer at La ferme

Chatel welcomes the family – with plenty to do for everyone and ideal for those who do not want to lie on the beach roasting to a frazzle.  No more prickly heat, sun stroke or gritty sand in your picnic…..
The temperature in the mountains in the summer is ideal – 70’s to 80’s but with a refreshing breeze – so great for all the activities that the Alps has to offer.  Walking is fabulous with short or long walks for all the family – wander down the mountain beside spectacular waterfalls or take a dip in one of the many high mountain lakes.  Horse riding is also lovely with wide open spaces (no speeding traffic here!) – and maybe stop for lunch in one of the local mountain restaurants.  Even the horses are given hay!  For the more adventurous white water rafting is just half an hour’s drive away, or the fantasticable ( the first of it’s kind in the Alps) will give you an exhilarating 1200 m vertical drop at 60 mph!  Other activities include tennis, a fantastic swimming pool (never too crowded and with a wonderful view), and mountain biking. Or for a great day out – why not go down to Evian and hire a boat on Lake Geneva for the day…. 
The choices are endless - but you can be guaranteed of a happy family time and a holiday to remember.
