Open spaces, mountain peaks, crystal clear lakes, woodland trails, clear blue skies and fresh air
Summer in the alps is stunning. We struggle to say which season we prefer and the summer probably wins. The pace of life if slower, the scope of activities endless and the scenery is breathtaking.
It doesn't take long to unwind in Le Praz. The pace is steady, French locals meander in the streets and the experiences are endless. Le Praz is a great base to explore from or just relax round the lake or over a alfresco meal in the village. The real savoyard character comes alive in the summer, with the spectacular mountain flora, cows in the meadows and the reminder of winter with the snow on the glaciers making a breaktaking backdrop.
Leave your car and explore by foot, bike or on the local ski buses. Courchevel provides a real journey through time with its heritage and traditional weekend fetes. The weather is warm with shorts and tee shirts during the day but bring an extra layer for the evenings just in case.
