The Best Ecolodges of the French Alps

The French Alps are a relatively young mountain range, and therefore offer some of the most breathtaking vistas - sheer, angular snow-capped peaks, with secluded valleys nestled between them. As a holiday destination, the Alps are most often associated with ski-resorts and over-priced chalets. Increasingly people are now flocking to the French Alps during the summer months thanks to numerous eco-lodges which have sprung up in the region over the last few years.
