Summer holidays: why choose the mountains over the sea?

Published on January 23, 2023

Mountain or sea for your summer vacation? Don't hesitate for a second. Avoid the crowds and the heatwave, and rejuvenate and refresh in the mountains. In 2024, Montagnettes is opening 4 establishments from July 6 to August 31: Hameau du Kashmir in Val Thorens, Hameau de la Sapinière in Les Menuires, the Taos and YNYCIO in Tignes.

Discover the tranquillity of the mountains

The mountains are the perfect setting to escape the masses on the beaches and in the big cities in summer as well as the intense heat. It is also the assurance of being in an ideal atmosphere to recharge your batteries: between the calm and the wide open spaces, you will become aware of the beauty of the nature that surrounds you.

The fauna and flora are offered to you as they have never been before. Your senses are awakened at every step: the smell of a crocus field, the whistle of a marmot, the savory taste of a freshly picked blueberry, the sound of trickling water, the beauty of the landscape that surrounds you.

Enjoy the cool morning temperatures, go on long hikes, have a picnic by a high altitude lake, go blueberry hunting, ride the mountain bike trails before admiring the sublime sunsets and the beauty of the starry sky. What more could you want?

Benefit from attractive prices

Going to the mountains in the summer means taking advantage of very interesting prices. The prices in the mountains in summer have nothing to do with those in winter! They are also much more attractive during the season than rentals by the sea. While saving money on accommodation, you can take advantage of this to do as many activities as possible with family and friends. You can also go shopping and bring back good regional products without breaking the bank.

For example, if you stay at Hameau du Kashmir during the summer of 2024, prices start at 220€/person per week and we'll give you 3 half-day hikes with the Belleville guide bureau. At this price, book without delay.

Activities for all tastes

Mountain biking, hiking, yoga, paragliding, archery,...there is everything in the resorts during the summer! For those who love swimming, it's also possible in the mountains in summer! Go hiking from our residences Montagnettes to reach the most beautiful lakes and water bodies to refresh yourself in pure water and in a unique altitude setting.

At Taos in Tignes, you are less than 5 minutes walk from the lake where white water activities are in full swing: stand-up paddle, pedal boats, kayaking, fishing... there is something for everyone.

In Val Thorens or in Les Menuires, take the height and climb to the summits between lakes and breathtaking views, you will find your account. If you are too tired, you can take a pedestrian pass to access the ski lifts and enjoy sublime views without any effort. The mountain bike trails in the Belleville valley are a real playground for two-wheelers.

At the end of the day, relax at Hameau du Kashmir in Val Thorens, at Hameau de la Sapinière in Les Menuires, at YNYCIO or at Taos in Tignes.


In addition, the resorts organize many events for the national holiday on July 14 and August 15. In the Belleville valley (which includes Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, Les Menuires and Val Thorens), a beer festival is traditionally organized in mid-July. In short, you won't be bored in the summer in the mountains.
