Enjoy a sizzling holiday this summer

With only 4 weeks left of the season, perhaps like us you’re already thinking of your summer holiday?! The past summers in France have been balmy with temperatures hitting 30 degrees and higher. The sun drenched mountains are perfect for hiking and mountain biking (Petit Mont Blanc has so many biking trails right on its door step). Our chalets in Serre Chevalier and catered chalets Vallandry are set in the most picturesque locations, with plenty of outdoor activities on offer. Whether you’re looking for an adrenaline packed holiday with kayaking, rock climbing, zip lining and paragliding (the list is endless!), or simply want to relax with mountain views while taking a dip in one of the many open-air bio pools, there’s something for everyone in the French Alps.

This summer, B&B breaks will be back throughout July and August in Vallandry and Serre Chevalier. Julie, Dave and Christine are looking forward to giving you all a warm welcome. Escape for a long weekend (3 nights) for just £49 per person, or stay a little longer for 7 nights for £99 per person (based on 2 sharing).

Le Tour de France route passes through Bourg-Saint-Maurice to Alpe d’Huez, which isn't far from our lodge in Serre Chevalier. Avoid the crowds and stay with us during the race. You'll only be a short drive from the track, or if you bring your bike, a challenging but beautiful ride away.

Adventure Week in Serre Chevalier

Our Adventure Weeks will be back with rock climbing, hiking, white water rafting and mountain biking. Last summer, we took our guests out exploring in the tree tops at Serre Che Adventure’s amazing high ropes adventure course. We rounded off each day with a delicious 2-course dinner. Keep an eye out for more details coming soon!

August Bank Holiday Weekend in Vallandry

This year we’ve got a Summer Reunion Trip planned for the August Bank Holiday Weekend (24th-27th). What better opportunity to catch up with friends and family? Soak up some French sunshine in this amazing alpine landscape. Enjoy 3/4 nights Bed & Breakfast (inc. airport transfer) at our lodge, Petit Mont Blanc. We’ve got some fantastic outdoor activities planned including:

  • White Water Rafting – Set off in Landry on Grade 3 water along the Isère River, a fun but challenging experience with waves and obstacles to navigate around.
  • Savoie Wine Tasting Tour - Explore the heart of the Savoie vineyards near the city of Chambéry. These vineyards produce over 25 different grape varieties and the most amazing white and red wines.
  • Mountain Walk – We’ll be hiking through the local national park (Vanoise) to the beautiful mountain lake below Mount Poirier. A perfect pit stop for a picnic.

All this wouldn’t be complete without a glass of chilled Vin Blanc at sunset.

All for £199 per person!

If you're looking for 5* accommodation where chalet girls wash your feet and sing you to sleep, just stop reading now.

We have travelled with Hucksters as both a school group and a family for an incredible 18 years. Never have I worked with a company who is so flexible and accommodating to individual needs.
