If the sun is out, do what the locals do and make the most of the nearby green spaces. Enjoy some of the scenic urban parks such as the Parc de Merlet in Les Houches. The ecological parks such as Mont Blanc in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, the Col du Midi and Mount Pourri in Peisey-Nancroix, give visitors an insight into the animals and plants that exist in the region.
If golf is your passion, head to the Giez-Lac d'Annecy Golf in Giez. It's a perfect way to get out and enjoy the fresh air.
If you enjoy skiing and snowboarding, round up the family and head to the La Plagne Ski Resort in Macot-la-Plagne, the La Clusaz Ski Resort in La Clusaz and the Les Houches Ski Lift in Les Houches for the best powder runs around Alpes du Nord.
After spending the day taking in the sights around Beaufort, recharge your batteries in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Chalet Hotel Les Campanules, Les Houches, the Mercure Chamonix Les Bossons, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc and the Hôtel Le Golf, Bourg-Saint-Maurice are just three of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
