The sensational French Apls!
Boasting dramatic scenery in every direction, the French Alps is one of the most beautiful regions of the world which enjoys a new lease of life in the summer months.
The snowy pistes are replaced by carpets of colourful wild flowers whilst the mountains provide a natural barrier to the rainfall, meaning the region is sheltered and gets more than its fair share of sunshine too!
With panoramic windows and air-conditioning our coaches enable you to enjoy the breath-taking scenery unfold before your eyes in comfort.
The crystal-clear waters of Lake Annecy are renowned as the cleanest in Europe and reflect the surrounding mountains. Known as the ‘Venice of the Alps’, Annecy is a beautiful old town with its winding cobbled streets, canal maze, turreted castle and cathedral adding to its romantic appeal.
The medieval village Talloires located on the lake’s shores is equally charming, and steeped in history with its abbey dating back to 1016.
The snow-capped glaciers of Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain, provide a magnificent backdrop to the colourful alpine town of Chamonix. For unparalleled views scale over 12,500 feet to the summit on the Aiguille du Midi cable.
Further north, Lake Geneva oozes style and sophistication with picturesque towns sprinkled along its shores.
The fortified town of Yvoire, which is lavishly bedecked in flowers is rightfully nicknamed the ‘Gem of the Lake’ due to its picture postcard setting. Enjoy a stroll along the lakeside promenade, browse the abundance of boutiques or enjoy lunch in the restaurants offering unrivalled views by the water.
If you’ve ever been skiing in the French Alps, heading there in the summer will make you fall in love with the region all over again.
