Why go to the mountains in September

The benefits of a stay in the French Alps in September 

In September, when summer comes to an end, children go back to school and families say goodbye to their summer rest. It is then the perfect time to fly to the French Alps for those who can. Whether you are alone, a couple, with or without a baby, or with friends, you can enjoy the hiking trails and exceptional panoramas in complete peace of mind.
 
In general, the prices of stays in residences during this period are lower than in July and August. The climate is also ideal for strolling in the mild sunshine or taking long excursions through the hilly countryside.
 

A large playground just for you!

There are many activities in the mountains, from hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, climbing or summer sledging, there is sure to be something for you. But going out of season also means taking your time and living at the pace of the locals. So why not explore little-known areas and learn more about the heritage of the French Alps?

If you are a lover of good food, you can take a cooking class to learn the secrets of traditional regional dishes such as croziflette, berthoud or farçon savoyard. Moreover, this discovery of local products is generally accompanied by the discovery of local wines, in order to match your dishes judiciously. It should be noted that the Savoyard vineyards are among the oldest in France. From September onwards, the vines begin to take on their autumn colours and shine in the valleys.
 

An exceptional architectural heritage

The villages of the Alps have an authentic charm. In Haute-Savoie, Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval is classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. With its farms, its chapels and its 12th century abbey complex, it must be said that it has a lot to offer. Not to mention the surrounding cirque of Fer-à-Cheval, the largest in the Alps, which is simply splendid: from the Gorges des Tines to the Rouget waterfall, nature is breathtaking.
 
The typical dwellings of the locals are of course the "chalets". Sober and full of character, these dwellings highlight the local know-how and the importance of wood and stone in their construction. Staying in the French Alps means going to meet all this heritage, and living an extraordinary adventure where everything is a wonder. Are we leaving in September?
