Summer has come and gone, and the break is coming. The travel period to the rest destinations begins. For this year, you want to break the routine towards the beaches of the South and its generous sun. Holidays in France are not limited to internationally renowned seaside resorts, or even to those that are a little less well known, but which are nevertheless becoming more and more overcrowded over time. An interesting option you could choose is to orient your trip towards the mountains. Attracting few summer visitors compared to beaches and other seaside destinations, these high horizons are full of various advantages that are worth a visit. Here are the main ones, which will certainly convince you to turn your holiday plans towards the heights this time.
The mountains, an economic destination
It is not known whether this is due to lack of attendance or for any other reason, but opinions are unanimous. Spending a family holiday in the mountains is much cheaper than a stay by the sea. And yet, without any question of lower quality or any other suggestion of the kind, the reception facilities that await you on the heights have nothing to envy to those of the beaches. You will certainly find at least one that suits your budget. From the traditional chalet to the most elaborate holiday club in the mountains, which offers a multitude of accommodation and activity options, as well as the famous family boarding house, the choice remains vast. Also, since most city dwellers continue to scour the beaches, it will be easier for you to find availability for the type of accommodation you are interested in.
Another way to recharge your batteries
The holiday season is a time to get a grip on things. After the pace and stress of work and daily activities, you can get a grip on yourself. While it is no longer necessary to boast about the virtues of the sea, the virtues of the mountains are no less deserving either. To regain good health, what could be better than to recharge your batteries in nature? Renting in France has understood the principle and is working to strengthen the sector, by offering multiple choices of accommodation as close as possible to the various natural assets. You now can enjoy a healthy climate, with the mountain atmosphere remaining pure and pollution-proof, as the altitude increases. On the other hand, thanks to this breath of fresh air that you can breathe, you will also enjoy culinary specialities that you will not find on the beaches. Finally, a new cultural vision will enrich your knowledge by rubbing shoulders with residents.
A multitude of activities
Whatever your temperament, the heights offer you more possibilities of activities than you can imagine. If the design of idleness has made you accustomed to lying on your beach towel or deckchair, a mountain holiday club will provide you with its version. Staying on the balcony of your apartment, contemplating the surroundings, will give you a new direction of this concept. However, if you are looking for adventure and discovery, this destination is full of activities that you can do at your leisure. Starting with skiing, which you can do in the middle of summer, hiking, cycling and exploring natural parks, not to mention the cultural visits specific to each region can furnish your days. Paragliding and other extreme sports such as parachute jumping are also attractions that a holiday club can offer you.
