A summer activity holiday in the mountains is absolutely perfect for all the family. There really is something for everyone… from 3 months to 83! As a mum, I thought it might be good to have an easy list to see what summer activities were possible for your family group. Knowing how to satisfy everyone with differing ages, needs and requirements can be a tricky business. I am sure you can see that Morzine-Avoriaz really is a child friendly summer destination.
