The typical Mediterranean climate of Provence and the Cote d'Azur has long drawn visitors here. Late Spring brings warm temperatures that can reach nearly 30C by July. Sunshine is abundant, with nearly 12 hours a day in mid-summer. The mistral wind can bring a cooler wind in early Spring, but this part of the Riviera is more protected. July is the driest month, and rain showers tend to be infrequent.

Visiting Chamonix in summer provides the opportunity to appreciate the sheer breadth of beauty that the Alps offers. Visually stunning, the white snow capped peaks of the Mont Blanc mountain range contrast beautifully with the lush green pastures below, brimming with colorful alpine flowers. Warmer days but cooler nights provide an all round pleasant climate, suitable for everyone.

Itinerary

Day 1-8

South of France

Starting with a stay at Terre Blanche Golf & Spa Resort, this luxury family resort is set in stunning landscaped gardens and has a well-equipped complimentary children's club and fun activity program, two championship golf courses, a number of stunning restaurants to choose from, a 40m heated outdoor swimming pool and children’s play pool, two floodlit tennis courts, state of the art gym and a 3,200m² spa.

The Cote d'Azur area has a wealth of historical villages to explore. Medieval St Paul de Vence and Tourrettes-sur-Loup make a great day's excursion with many boutiques, galleries and restaurants on offer. An area of outstanding natural beauty, nature lovers will enjoy the many beautiful valleys and wooded groves, whilst shopping enthusiasts will love the glamour of nearby Cannes or Monaco. Whatever takes your fancy, there is something to keep everyone happy.

Accommodation: Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort ( 7 nights )
Day 8-13

France

After a week in your villa, pick up your hire car and make your way North, on a scenic drive through South East France, through the Aosta Valley in Italy, through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix. This Alpine town has a bustling atmosphere during the summer months, as professional climbers and tourists rub shoulders and enjoy the stunning surroundings. 

There are some great hotel options in Chamonix, from the beautiful five star Hotel Mont Blanc with its gorgeous outdoor pool, to the family-friendly Heliopic Hotel & Spa with its prime location at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi lift.

The pace of your vacation will pick up once you arrive in Chamonix as this is the time to try a host of different activities, on the mountain, on the water or even in the air. Explore the mountains on foot with a private guide, ride the rapids white water rafting, take to the skies paragliding or just enjoy the abundance of fresh, mountain air and take in your stunning surroundings. Chamonix lies at the foot of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain and this provides a spectacular outdoor playground which is as enriching visually as it is physically. We would definitely recommend taking the Aiguille du Midi cable car up to enjoy the spectacular views of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps.

Watch mountaineers make their bid to summit Mont Blanc as you continue your journey on the Panoramic du Mont Blanc gondola across to Pointe Helbronner, the highest point above Courmayeur. You'll feel like you are on top of the world and the panoramic views of the mountain are breath-taking.

Accommodation: Hotel Mont Blanc - Summer ( 5 nights )
