Summer Chalet Holidays in the Alps

For many people, Alpine resorts are the go-to winter holiday destination, but far fewer consider places like The 3 Valleys or the Portes du Soleil for their summer escape. We think they're missing out...

The much lower demand for holidays in summer means that Alpine summer holidays offer excellent value. You can enjoy temperatures above 30°C and luxury accommodation for much less than you might pay for a holiday on the Mediterranean.

Plan your Summer Holiday

Here at Delicious Mountain, we don't currently offer summer holidays in the Alps. Sorry! But the good news is that we know lots of people who do. Use this resource to find the best summer Alpine chalet companies, and to plan your summer holiday in the Alps.

Book your Flights

If you haven't booked your flights already, we would recommend that you do so soon to get the best prices. The nearest airport is Chambery, but most people tend to opt for the more regular flights into Geneva, just over two hours from Meribel resort. The main provider of budget flights from the UK is EasyJet, but British Airways also offer regular flights from London Heathrow, along with one or two others.

It is also possible to drive to Meribel. The village is about 9 hours' drive from Calais and, if chosen carefully, the route will be all motorways until the final 30 minutes or so.

The final option is to travel by train. The best option is to get the Eurostar to Paris, then the TGV to Geneva (at lightning speed!). After a 15-minute train ride to the airport, you can take a transfer bus from Geneva Airport to Meribel. See below for details of transfer companies.

One you have booked your flights, the next step is to organise your transfers from the airport to Meribel and the warm welcome of Chalet La Chouette. Here are some of the most popular transfer providers in the Three Valleys area.
