Jura, Auvergne & more
France's mountains are stunning. We love the French Alps with the world-renowned mountain town of Chamonix, pretty vibrant villages with activities all summer long, and resorts like Tignes and Les Deux Alpes, which are a magnet for those looking for summer mountain adventures. Whilst the Alps undoubtedly attract a lot of attention, areas like the Jura and Auvergne also deserve to be showcased.
Peak Retreats has expanded its horizons and sought out mountains elsewhere in France that we've fallen for too. Cantal, one of the lesser known areas of the volcanic region of the Auvergne for example. Or the Jura mountains with its often dramatic landscape of mountains, waterfalls and lakes. The peaks in these areas may take a different form but they are just as stunning. Explore our selection and discover some special experiences and places to stay.
