Summer holidays in the French Alps

Summer holidays in the French Alps

With the warm spring weather, the village of Montgenèvre bursts into colour and the air is scented by the gorgeous hanging flower baskets that are scattered around the squares.

If you want to relax and unwind, or even do a different sport everyday, Montgenèvre is the perfect location for a summer holiday in the French Alps.

Montgenèvre’s 9 hole, par 36, 3200m golf course is a popular summer destination. With cool, clear lakes to negotiate, breathtaking vistas to take in, and a beautiful meandering course - this will be one of your most memorable rounds of golf ever. And if you’re looking for an 18 hole challenge you can also play the adjoining 9 holes across the Italian border in Claviere.

Surrounded by luscious larch forest, there’s also a 9 hole pitch and putt course; perfect for golf beginners or the younger members of your group.

For the keen mountain bikers, Montgènevre bike park is a must. The park has different tracks, wooden bridges and jumps, and is a challenge for all levels of rider.

There are a number of tracks that are perfect for all the family. These include a ride that weaves its way through the forest and across vast meadows. And another that goes all the way to nearby Briancon.

If you’re looking for some peace and tranquillity, you can enjoy a spot of fishing in one of Montgenèvre’s three lakes. 2150m above sea level these cold, crystal clear oases are full of Rainbow, Fario and Canadian trout.

You can also explore Montgenèvre’s forts, rivers, forests and lakes by following the well-marked hiking trails or taking a guided walk. Your efforts will be rewarded by the spectacular views at the summit.

If it’s a bit more action you’re after you can also try white water rafting, horse riding and a game or two of tennis. And there’s also an outdoor heated swimming pool and an adventure park for the younger members of your group.

After all your daytime activity, enjoy an evening stroll along the promenade in the cool mountain air. The long wooden boardwalk nuzzles the edge of the golf course and is spectacularly lit at night by futuristic lamps.
