Spring and autumn in the French Alps

We ourselves were amazed at how beautiful it is here during spring and autumn. It is said that the valley enjoys 300 sunny days per year and we have started to think that that is true. The months of April, May, September and October are delightful: a sheer blue sky, the mountain tops covered (again) with a snow cap; in springtime all those lovely flowers and in the fall magnificent autumn colours in the forests. 

In springtime you will be enthralled by the flowers in the mountains: at every altitude a different vegetation, in full bloom in our garden to just peeping out of the snow higher up.

Autumn is a good season for walking; it is still nice and warm during the day and peaceful since the summer crowd has gone.

We can offer you special walking arrangements, adapted to your wishes as regards distance and, grade. We will even pack you a delicious lunch.

Cyclists and motorcyclists will also enjoy spring and autumn at Solneige: lovely weather and less crowded on the well known cols.
