Summer & Autumn hiking holidays French Alps
Whether you call it hiking, trekking, walking or rambling there is plenty of scope to indulge your passion in the French Alps and particularly around the stunning Beaufortain Massif and the Tarentaise Valley in the Savoy region of France.
Hiking in the mountains is an activity that can be enjoyed by most people and to various degrees of difficulty. The vast number of marked trails in the area ensures that walkers can trek in safety whilst enjoying the stunning views the area has to offer. Ramblers and hikers get to see the mountains at their best from snow capped peaks to shady forests and magnificent waterfalls to picturesque Savoyard villages. Along with lush meadows bursting with alpine flowers and icy mountain streams the views from the trails around Chalet Savoie Faire are unforgettable.
Nestled in the heart of this beautiful region is Chalet Savoie Faire, a lovingly restored Savoyard barn in the picturesque village of Fontaines, Naves sleeping up to eight guests. This luxury B&B has been created by hosts Nikki and Hugh and can be reserved on a bed and breakfast, full board or self catered basis. This flexibility is unusual but Nikki and Hugh are convinced that this gives guests the holiday they want. If you choose to take meals then they will be provided by Nikki and a gourmet experience is guaranteed. Guests benefit from Nikki’s 25 years of living and cooking in France.

English speaking guides who know the area well can be hired for a day’s trekking or for multi day hiking adventures staying in refuges and making the most of the stunning panoramic views. Of course, multi day treks can be undertaken without a guide, there are plenty of well marked trails and routes in the Beaufortain to follow. Nikki and Hugh can advise you on which mountain huts to stay in and can even make reservations for you in advance.
