Summer holidays in France, where to go?

Whether you are a family or a couple, this summer, the mountains have all the advantages. Far from the crowds of cities and overcrowded beaches, take to the skies and come and recharge your batteries in the sun near the summits.


Spring in Cordon, a great breath of air facing the Mont-Blanc.



You came to ski in the winter, and during a sunny break on the terrace of a high altitude restaurant, you surely said to yourself that it would be worth it to come to the mountains in the summer. With a breathtaking view and an ideal location in the heart of the Chamonix valley, what would you say to coming on holiday to Cordon? The Mont Blanc balcony, you know it...right? This adorable village in Haute-Savoie has plenty to offer.


You will be able to practice a multitude of physical activities, starting with hiking. More than 80 kilometres of paths, accessible to all the family, will guide you through the mountain pastures, up to the summits of the Aravis.


The nearby Arve River, which flows through the valley floor, is a wonderful playground for white water sports, and you can experience the thrill of rafting, canyoning, hydrospeed or kayaking, or challenge yourself on the many vias ferratas located near the village. There are also superb mountain golf courses where you can break par, if you are not too distracted by the beauty of the surrounding peaks.


Are you more of a contemplative person? Is your idea of a successful holiday to relax and spend time with your loved ones? Then you will always be looking at the beautiful. Cordon is a true sanctuary where you can take time to appreciate the cycle of the seasons.


From the terrace of the chalet les Cerises, the spectacle offered by Mother Nature is permanent.



Have you been spending too much time in a small flat? Cordon is made for you. Come and recharge your batteries at the foot of the roof of Europe, and admire the wide open spaces that surround you. In a setting worthy of the most beautiful postcards, admire the most beautiful sunsets on the Mont Blanc massif.


Do you want to escape the heat of the cities? The hot summer days are followed by cool nights. What a pleasure to be able to sleep with the windows open without being bothered by mosquitoes, rare at this altitude.


The video attached to this post was skilfully produced by the Tourism Office at the time when the meadows are blooming in spring. A team of enthusiasts is at your disposal to advise and inform you. https://www.cordon.fr/


So what are you waiting for to book your next summer holiday on the Mont Blanc balcony?
