Summer in the Alps means fewer crowds, better deals and amazing activities in the sun. Here are just a few of the reasons why Sainte Foy is the perfect spot to spend your summer holiday….

The French Alps are made for family adventuring too. With aerial assault courses, horse riding, swimming and rock climbing nearby, you’ll find you can entertain the kids from dawn until dusk (and even in the middle of the night – stargazing, anyone?).  There are plenty of alpine rivers and lakes that provide an endless playground for those of you who love water too. There really is a mountain of activities on air, land and water at your fingertips. Each day holds something new….  Your only problem will be trying to fit it all in!
