Winter in Vallee D’Aulps

In the summer the vast array of activities available will keep everyone entertained. The numerous walking paths are well signposted and start from outside the chalet. The scenic walk into Saint Jean takes 20-30 minutes through the woods – wander down for coffee or lunch. The restaurant at the Terchette is open every day – accessible in a 4-wheel drive via Graydon, you can hike up from the Terche or the lift at La Grande Terche is open on Thursdays.

Morzine and Les Gets will be buzzing with mountain bikers, downhill cyclists and electric bikers all enjoying the thrill of the mountains. Head there to shop and eat, and then return to Chalet le Dahu and enjoy the peace and cooler air of La Grande Terche. The pétanque pitch at the Terche is well used by visitors and the locals – join in the Friday evening competition!

Lac Montriond is a 10 minute drive away and offers beautiful scenic walks, a waterfall andfabulous refreshing swimming in the lac, or in the smaller ‘swimming lac’ for the kids. There are BBQ pits available or several restaurants – dinner here is a perfect way to end the day.

Lac Leman is a 25 minute drive away in Thonon-les-Baines with sailing, swimming and cafes by the lake. Yvoire is a medieval town by Lac Leman and well worth a visit.

Golf is available locally in Les Gets and Avoriaz. The championship course at Evian Resort Golf Club is 40 minutes drive from the chalet – a challenge for even the best golfers.
