Invest in the mountains and enjoy the bonus of a summer seasonAugust 15, 2020

Did you know that the Savoie and the Haute-Savoie combined hosted 67.6 million overnight stays in 2018*? It’s easy to understand why. Authentic mountain villages, continuous investment in infrastructure and excellent travel arrangements keep mountain lovers returning to the peaks of French Alps year after year.

But did you also know that skiing represents 33.8 million alpine skier days**? The Savoie Mont Blanc destination, the second destination in terms of tourist investment***, is certainly appreciated for its ski slopes, but not just during the winter season. Today, when you invest in the mountains, you invest in tourism in all four seasons of the year. The French Alps are more and more popular during the summer, thanks to a varied combination of relaxation, cultural and sporting activities. By investing in an Alpine Lodges property, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of the mountain, in winter as in summer, while making a return on your investment with our sister company Alpine Residences. Here we’ll guide you through each of the resorts.

High Peaks & Fresh Air in Courchevel

In Courchevel during the summer season, our owners come above all to take advantage of the calm, cool breeze offered by the mountains. They recharge their batteries and enjoy a discreet escape, far from the busy beaches of the South of France. Courchevel offers sports activities suitable for all levels and abilities in the great outdoors such as hiking, mountain biking, golf and via ferrata to name just a few. Indoors, ice skating, wave surfing, bowling and other fun activities are also available. Highlights and recurring events also delight families, athletes and friends, such as the Pyrosymphony Live, which combines classical music, dance and fireworks for a breathtaking spectacle. Far from the world of Courchevel in winter, summer is conducive to relaxation in an immense green playground.

Manali Lodge is a 5* hotel located on the Courchevel Moriond pistes and a small selection of suites are available for sale. Enough to enjoy the heart of the action, in winter with the skiers and ski lifts and in summer to the sound of cow bells.

Peace in mind in Val d'Isère, this summer

There’s no denying that for some, the next winter season just can’t come quick enough. Val d’Isere is one of the few places in Europe where you can clip on your skis and enjoy some superb morning turns on fresh powder during summer. Thanks to Val d’Isere’s very own Pisaillas glacier and with the occasional assistance of snow canons, two chairlifts are open to take advantage of a few pistes in June and July (depending on the snow cover each year).The slopes are typically only open in the mornings during the summer season so you can enjoy the freshly groomed runs before a traditional mountain lunch. Elsewhere under the summer sunshine in Val d’Isere you’ll find a full roster of high octane summer activities including glacier walking, canyoning and rafting, cycling and more.
