Situated in the heart of the Valais canton in Switzerland is the popular skiing resort of Montana. A Montana holiday is prefect no matter what time of year you decide to go as there are plenty of activities and nearby attractions to fill up your time! As well as giving great, easy access to the skiing piste, a Montana holiday rental chalet acts as a comfortable, cosy place to return to after a tiring day on the slopes.
Whether you are heading off on a summer or winter break, there are plenty of things to do to keep visitors of all ages occupied on a Montana holiday. Activities that are widely available both in and around the resort include the likes of skiing, ice skating, sledding, dog sledding, white-water rafting, paragliding, horse riding, golf, tennis, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, fishing and snowboarding.
Should you have the energy and inclination left towards the end of your Montana holiday to see some of the magnificent sights that Switzerland has to offer, then it is recommended that you spend the day in the town of Montreux, in the neighbouring canton of Vaud. Montreux has several great attractions including the 13th century Chateau de Chillon. This magnificent building was originally a fortress and after being modified through the years has had many popes, princesses and emperors staying within its walls. Montreux is also noted for its various festivals and events held throughout the year including the annual Montreux Jazz Festival, the Montreux Memorial Day held in honour of the musician Freddie Mercury and The Golden Rose Festival.
By booking a Montana holiday rental chalet, you are guaranteed to be privy to some amazing weather, whether you want a fabulous summer holiday or an exciting winter break. Travellers heading for the town during the summer months can expect to experience maximum daytime temperatures of around 22 degrees Celsius. If you prefer the cold, then it is best to book a Montana holiday for the winter months when the temperature can drop to as low as -3 degrees Celsius. The annual rainfall amount for the resort is around 24 inches.
To start an exciting Montana holiday, travellers can arrive at Geneva International Airport (GVA) which is approximately 2 hours away from the resort. Travellers will find that there are several airlines that offer regular flights and special deals for flights to Geneva such as British Airways, Flybe, KLM, Jet2 and easyJet. Passengers can depart the UK from several major airports including Edinburgh (EDI), Newcastle(NCL), Belfast (BFS), Leeds (LBA) and London Gatwick (LGW).
