Les Etincelles Offers Sparkling Summer Holidays In The French Alps

The French Alps are always a super popular destination for winter ski holidays, but come the warmer weather, UK visitor numbers drop off. There’s no reason why they should – this region is equally attractive in summer for those seeking an active break, with hiking, biking, white water swimming, golf, paragliding, fishing and yoga just some of the sports available. If conditions permit, there is even skiing on the glacier, for those who just can’t keep away from the piste. 

Les Etincelles, the largest luxury hospitality group in the French mountains, has some great last-minute summer offers to help Brits make the most of the high-altitude villages of Tignes and La Plagne in the coming months. Details can be found below.
