Activities in Portes du Soleil

Bowling Alley

  • A great activity to do after being on the slopes or if you have non-skiers with you it’s a mildly energetic activity for during the day

Cinema

  • You can catch up on the latest films here. On bad weather days you will find they open their doors early so you can hide out.

Helicopter rides

  • Being able to sit back, relax and take photos of the top of the mountains is not something that many get to do. The views of the snow topped Alps could be a tick off your bucket list.

Ice skating

  • As the skating rink is indoor you could use this as way to get those leg muscles burning on bad weather days.

Parapenting

  • Otherwise known as paragliding to the rest of the world this is a unique way to see the Alps and the views of the valley without really doing much at all.

Snowshoe walking

  • Perfect to do in bad weather or for non-skiers, it is a fantastic way to see the mountains and to get out and enjoy the snow.

Husky sledging

  • Being in charge of your own team of excitable dogs, flying down the forest paths following your guide, a very active couple of hours for an afternoon off the piste.

Hot-Air Ballooning

  • A truly unique experience, the views are stunning and it is such a surreal way to see the mountains. A must do here is Morzine

Ice diving

  • Take the plunge into the icy cold waters of the Lake. Get to explore the depths of the water and the ice formations. A strange underwater adventure that shouldn’t be missed.

Nightlife

  • With many cosmopolitan bars and clubs to choose from, you can keep your après going way into the early hours of the morning.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.
