Chalet apartment to rent in Praz-sur-Arly, Megève, France
So you think the French Alps is all about winter-sports? Think again! If anything, the resorts of Praz-sur-Arly, Megève and the rest of the Val d’Arly and Haute Savoie are busier in the Summer. There’s all manner of sports and relaxation activities, including many lakes and beaches and great day trips all within easy reach. Make our apartment your base for an active Summer break
Take a spin on the ice in the centre of Megève or – even in bad weather or Summertime – take to the olympic sized rink in the Palais sports centre.
As with many top ski resorts, Megève has an outdoor rink in the centre of town that’s packed with kids aprés-ski. In Megève it’ is raised in the centre of town with the neighbouring Puck bar making a great escape for parents.
But if the weather is poor or you’re looking for more space, there’s also an enormous indoor rink at the Megève sports centre. Details here>>
Take a look out the windows in the master bedroom window on a clear sunny morning, say around 9am, and chances are you’ll see 2 or 3 hot air-balloons rising majestically into the air. Why not take a ride in one!
Mongolfiers, as they are known in France (after the frenchman who apparently invented them), are launched from Praz-sur-Arly, just by the Aire de Jeux – 10 mins walk from the apartment.
We’ve never taken one – I’m afraid of heights – but it looks like an amazing experience.
Of all the destinations in easy reach, Annecy must be one of the most charming. This historic town on the edge of stunning Lake Annecy, has so much to offer and is just an hour and half drive away.
Whether in the Summer or a sunny Spring day, taking a break from the skiing, Annecy town is great for strolling. Take in it’s beautiful buildings, shops and buzzy restaurants and cafés. The market is on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
