Family Adventure Holidays in Samoens France

Family adventure holidays are a fantastic way to enjoy your precious time with loved ones. A family activity holiday offers something for everybody with the children and big kids alike finding plenty to entertain them in the incredibly beautiful setting of the French Alps.

A Breathtaking Environment for a Family Holiday

When we think of family holidays, rarely do the mountains spring to mind. It's easy to picture beaches, theme parks or dedicated family holiday complexes but unless you have enjoyed an activity holiday in the Alps, you would be forgiven for not considering this stunning setting as an alternative.

If having somewhere for the kids to splash around safely is a priority then our open air swimming complex (with very popular slides!) is perfect and for those seeking a more natural experience, then we have a mountain lake with beach area monitored by a life guard.

Family adventure holidays in the French Alps will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Family Acitivities for Everybody

There is plenty to keep the whole family entertained in Samoens with activities for everyone from the most adventurous to those seeking a gentle relaxing holiday with the family. The picture postcard village of Samoens has long been recognised as a perfect family holiday by the French and unlike purpose build ski resorts, Samoens is alive with activity in the summer.

With white water fun, biking, climbing, high wires, horse riding and swimming to name but a few fun family events, the challenge you will have is fitting everything you want to do into one week.

Summer Weather in Samoens

The Alps in summer tend to offer sunshine and temperatures in the late 20°C's and early 30°C's. The mountains are an extreme environment though so we can also see dramatic weather from time to time. Whatever the weather, there is fun to be had in Samoens.

Our Family Chalets

Our family adventure holidays are available in two of our catered chalets. Chalet Petite Ourse is ideal for a family looking for their own space. It has two bedrooms (sleeping 6/8) and a private hot tub with incredible views. Meals will be served exclusively for you in the dining area or on the sun terrace. Chalet Petite Ourse is the only catered chalet in Samoens with a hot tub available exclusively for a family of 4.
