An idyllic foodie week at a gourmet lodge in the French Alps, with typical chalet board and all travel

We're all familiar with the snow-doused environs of the French Alps in the wintertime, but these old friends adopt a new character over the summer months, offering a verdant terrain of picturesque pines, cascading falls and a whole new set of activities to enjoy. So swap your ski boots for your hiking shoes, your woolly hat for your favourite cap, and head to the Alps for a chalet stay in Samoëns.

The resort centre has a selection of restaurants, bars and shops, but you'll enjoy a real gourmet treat in your very own chalet. Chalet Samoens, voted as the best place to stay in the region on TripAdvisor (and which evidently also boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence), is part of an exclusive group of chalets, owned by a former chef of Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck and Chez Bruce restaurant in London. You'll find all the attention to detail you'd expect over the winter season - think four-course dinners six nights a week and waking up to a bountiful breakfast of continental options.

Every room comes with an en-suite bathroom and flatscreen TV, and each can be rearranged to suit your situation - twin or double. You'll even find a wet room, complete with hot tub and sauna - the perfect place for a post-hike or post-bike soak to ward off any aches.

Good to know

Our offer includes an unlimited drinks service, which affords guests access to house wines, beers and soft drinks all day (not just at meal times).
