SUMMER IN THE TARENTAISE
We first left Britain for the Alpine winters because we loved to ski.
More than fifteen years later we still love to ski, but we love the summer months here even more than the winter ones.
The weather is usually glorious – warm days of 20-30C and cooler nights of 15-20C, and it’s a dry heat so there’s none of the uncomfortable stickiness that you often get in warm climates. There’s so much to do that there really is something for everyone. You can choose to mountain bike, road cycle, hike, climb, play golf or tennis, swim, watch the Tour de France, indulge at the local wine fairs, or simply relax and soak up the sun.
There is an extensive activities programme for all the family at Sainte Foy throughout the summer. The "Pass Famille" costs €39 per adult and €31 per child and gives you access to : pony rides, mini-golf, nordic walking, nature walks, adventure park, Le Lagon swimming pool at Tignes, and reduced rates for the Kids Club.
So, why not have a change from the beach, come and enjoy the Alps in the summer time. There’s no where else we’d rather be.
