A family holiday in the mountains is a great option in both summer and winter. In the summer, the mountains allow you to share relaxing moments with your family in a cool environment. Far from the crowds of some beaches, you can swim in ponds, lakes and hot springs. In winter, the mountains remain a key destination for all types of winter sports activities in the beautiful ski areas. Little Guest has selected for you the most beautiful chalets to spend your family holidays in the mountains.
To combine exploration, recreation and relaxation during your family holiday, choose a mountain destination all year round. Winter is synonymous with a variety of snow-related activities: skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, dog sledding and tobogganing. All this combined with wellness activities (sauna, hammam, heated swimming pool, hydrotherapy and massage with essential oils) and outstanding gastronomic experiences (cold meats, cheeses, aperitifs and regional wines).
In summer, the mountains are less crowded than the beach, but promise much more promising activities. Hiking, cycling, swimming in the lakes, various sports such as canyoning, kayaking, paragliding, via ferrata or summer tobogganing are all activities that await you in the mountains. What’s more, the air is cooler at altitude during the warm season.
A chalet in the mountains offers many more advantages than a hotel. It can be more affordable, but above all it gives you more privacy, as it is a self-contained house. You stay in a comfortable place without the neighbours like a room or flat hotel.
Depending on the package you choose, a chalet can be fully equipped with a living room, open plan kitchen, balcony and sometimes even a hot tub. In addition, chalets are set in a larger area and often have facilities to keep the whole family entertained, such as a children’s playground, a gym and a wellness centre for older children.
Hotels are known for the countless services they offer to make guests’ stay easier and more comfortable. These services include:
Room services: daily change of bed linen and towels.
Booking of activities
The services offered vary depending on the category of the hotel. With Little Guest, it is possible to book your family holiday in the mountains in a chalet with hotel services. Our small selection includes establishments that are both a chalet and a hotel.
Are you dreaming of relaxing in the mountains with your family? Little Guest offers you these chalets with the best services to please the whole family.
