Who says the Alps are just for winter?

Many of the beautiful, luxury ski chalets in The White Chalet Collection open in the warmer months too, and a summer holiday in the mountains is a real treat.

There is the breathtaking scenery, there is wonderful flora and fauna, there are heaps of things to do, and the weather can be gorgeous – surprisingly hot, but fresh too.

Some mountain resorts are genuinely year-round resorts, if anything becoming even busier in June, July and August. These include Zermatt, Megève, Morzine, Les Gets, Chamonix and Verbier.

The summer-time activities they offer range from gentle walking to mountaineering, hiking, golf, zip-wiring, rock climbing, mountain biking, parapenting, tennis, swimming, farm visits, scenic train rides, you name it.  And many of the resorts stage music festivals, or foodie breaks too.

You can enjoy all this while staying in a five-star, family friendly, super-relaxed summer chalet, rather than an impersonal hotel. These can either be booked by the room or hired out in total, and several have attractive summertime offers, run themed weekends or programmes such as yoga, mountain biking or even painting.

The luxury chalets are properly set up for the summer, with swimming pools or gorgeous sun terraces with loungers, and all are located in Alpine mountain resorts that are genuinely buzzing in the warmer months.

The good news, also, is that these summer chalets are far less expensive than they are in the winter. Most are run on a self-catered or B&B basis, rather than the more pricey fully-catered winter model, so you get to stay in a genuinely stunning chalet that in the winter would be far more pricey. It’s a win win!
