September in Serre Chevalier

In this blog, we explore what Serre Chevalier is like in September – spoiler: it’s wonderful! While it may not be the focus of our blog or business (with ski season between December and April), the summertime in the mountains can be just as magical. From the years of living and working in the French Alps, we’ve got the first-hand experience of how spectacular summer is and decided to open our doors to holidaymakers wanting to experience a different side to the mountains.

Our apartments are open for those looking for summer holidays in France, and we can let you know what you can expect if you join us for a late summer break in September.

Who Comes to Serre Chevalier in September and Why?

Who Comes to Serre Chevalier in September and Why?

Summer holidays in Serre Chevalier can be ideal for those who regularly go on skiing holidays and can’t get enough of the location. It’s great for those who don’t want to go skiing but like the idea of an escape to the mountains. But it’s safe to say that by September, summer is drawing to its close.

However, across the board, holidays in the school holidays can get booked quickly, and places often fill with lots of tourists. September can, therefore, be an opportune time for adult-only holidays, with the holidaymakers looking for a relaxing retreat often choosing a later time to enjoy the last bit of summer.

The benefit being that within the beautiful and sunny location of Serre Chevalier, a holiday here can offer something much better than what the UK can offer at this time!

The quiet September month allows you to experience the ever-changing landscape as it turns from summer to autumn. The colours of the mountains will go from the lush green to a fabulous rainbow of reds, oranges, and yellows, to a snowy-white, winter wonderland.

What to Bear in Mind for A September Visit?

What to Bear in Mind for A September Visit?

September is known as the inter-season, so some of the restaurants may have altered their opening times or may not be open at all. However, you can always find a few reliable choices available in the village when the mood to dine out takes you. Please also remember that our Serre Chevalier accommodation comes fully-equipped with a kitchenette so that you can prepare your own meals too.

Changes to operating hours can apply to the supermarket and the butchers and bakery too – with many opening the doors during the morning hours for trade. Therefore, you’ll want to do your shopping in early before heading out for a walk, hike or sporting activity.

The Arrival of Winter

When September ends, winter isn't coming, it’s already begun. Gone are the days of sunbathing by the lake or hiking and biking along the mountain trails in T-shirts and shorts. We have packed away the summer clothing and dusting off the winter attire, ready for the frosty mornings and chilly nights. That is not to say we are sad, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. We cannot wait! The end of summer marks us that little bit closer to our favourite time of year- ski season.

The Arrival of Winter

What Happens in Serre Chevalier after September?

With the summer months over, we use the time between summer and winter to prepare for the ski season. We trial and test our menu, making updates as needed or perfecting our classics like the traditional Sunday roast and Tartiflette. We freshen up the place and add finishing touches to the rooms. We prepare for the season ahead with the team, with passion, motivation and enthusiasm to give our guests the great service and standards we’re known for. And, the most enthralling part of the process, when the snow falls, we test the conditions for you, ready to tell all our guests what to expect when they visit in the ski season.
