South Africans are known to be sport-fanatic, adventure-seeking, outdoor-loving people. And while that may be a generalisation, at Club Med we have seen a huge surge in athletic and outdoor enthusiastic GMs asking for resorts that cater for their needs. You are used to us talking about our ski resorts, but did you know that a variety of our snow resorts transform into the most heavenly summer mountain holiday spots during the European summer?
Based on our consultants’ experience and the feedback from GMs, we think there are no better options than these spectacular sunny mountain resorts:
Club Med Valmorel
Club Med Valmorel in France is in the heart of the Massif de la Tarentaise. Valmorel lies at the edge of a magnificent forest and the resort has preserved its traditional,local architecture. Our adventurous GMs can explore the hamlets of Valmorel and its centre, Bourg-Morel, with lovely pedestrian streets and little squares, its stone and wood chalets with slate roofs. Club Med Valmorel is located 15 km from the spa resort of La Lèchère, 35 km from the internationally renowned resort of Courchevel and 22 km from Albertville, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 1992, offering many opportunities to explore by foot and on bike.
