Choose When to Visit Every Season has Something Special to Offer

When you come to stay in the French Alps, close to nature, the changes between the four seasons are very evident.  The Lodge operates slightly differently during each season, adapting to the best of what the surrounding area offers and accommodating to our clients’ preferences. In winter we tend to welcome groups who prefer to be self-catered, although there is a catering option.  In summer we welcome individuals, couples, families and groups with options for bed and breakfast, half or full board.  Read on below to discover more about our different accommodations and the array of activities on offer!
