Visiting a ski resort in the summer
Whilst most people visit Le Grand Massif for their annual ski holiday, there are a great many reasons to buck the trend and plan a visit in the summer.
Through the winter months, popular ski resorts are bustling with enthusiastic visitors. In the summer, Samoëns becomes a much more relaxed place to stay.
– What is summer like in Samoëns?
With temperatures often rising above 30 degrees, Samoëns becomes a sunny summer hideaway. The fields are awash with colour, as beautiful flowers bloom.
Sheltered by a mountain backdrop, all ages can enjoy rest and relaxation with life at a much slower pace.
– What are the things to do during summer in Samoëns?
From conversations in the Jacuzzi at Ferme du Ciel to walks around the village and visits to the market, you’ll discover that the summer months can be just as fun-packed as the winter. Though you’re not racing down the mountainside at a high speed, you’ll make just as many wonderful memories.
Visit tea rooms, or hire a bike to cycle along the winding lanes. You can even hire an e-bike specifically, for a little extra support as you take on the mountain terrain.
In this medieval village, with its rivers and hiking trails, you’ll love to while away the hours. Two golf courses are especially enjoyable through the warmer season, whilst the Indiana treetop adventure park will appeal even to the fussiest of teens!
– Staying in a Samoëns luxury chalet
A Samoëns luxury chalet offers the perfect base for a summer stay in the area.
Modern luxuries, including a fully-equipped kitchen for self-catering holidays, are sure to appeal to everyone. You can take a summer stroll into the village, for fresh cooked meats, cheeses and bread. Then, prepare a picnic or pour the champagne for an afternoon outside.
Ferme du Ciel, with its picture-perfect flower boxes, is the ideal destination for summer house parties and family holidays. It sleeps up to 18 people, making it the perfect property for a family-friendly luxury holiday with all of your extended family, or with friends for a summer retreat.
A wood-fired pizza oven, swimming pool and terrace with outdoor seating ensure that Ferme du Ciel is not just a ski chalet for the winter months.
