One of the best places to stay during a summer holiday in the Alps is Hôtel Alliey & Spa, a Serre Chevalier hotel high up the valley, in the heart of the quaint village of Le Monetier-les-Bains. Being the highest village in the resort, at an altitude of 1500m, the air is exceptionally pure and the views are absolutely magnificent.

Choose from two and three star rooms, decorated in the true traditional Alpine style, or from a great range of apartments; from cosy apartments, perfect for couples, to three floor duplex apartments perfect for big groups of friends or for families. Most have great views of the mountains and some even have private terraces with sunset views!

By far the best thing about the Hôtel Alliey & Spa is their pools. They have an indoor massage pool with air jets and swan necks, the perfect respite to sooth your tired muscles after a day in the mountains! The pièce de résistance though is the outdoor Ecrins water swimming pool, heated to 28°C in the winter and summer, surrounded by the Alps! There is nothing quite like the feeling of basking in water, surrounded by the magnificent mountain panorama. It definitely distinguishes this hotel from the rest on offer in the resort.

The location of this hotel in Monetier les Bains could not really be any more perfect, as the activities on offer just steps from the hotel are endless. Some of our favorite summer activities are: white water rafting, climbing, hiking and cycling. Also, the famous Grands Bains de Monetier are 150m away; a heaven of relaxation, with indoor and outdoor pools fed by natural thermal springs, which have been in use since Roman times!! 

The Ecrins National Park and the whole of the valley in general, is a nature lover or adventure junkie’s paradise… there are wonderful Larch forests to explore, fresh water lakes to swim in, climbing trails, white water rafting trips, photo safaris… But above all, Serre Chevalier is a famous road biking destination, due to the kilometers of Grande Routes’ roads which wind through forests and meadows, up steep mountain climbs, and across epic plateaus. There are numerous events throughout the summer that amateurs and pro cyclists can enter. You can read more about the 2014 events here: cycling the alps.

The average daily temperature in the summer in Serre Chevalier is 20°C, and there are on average 300 days of sunshine a year, the perfect combination for mountain advantures.
