The lat­est news from France plus the events tak­ing place this month

Cha­monix is well known for be­ing one of France’s best-loved ski re­sorts, but come the sum­mer, the Alpine vil­lage en­joys warm sunny days with a gen­tle moun­tain breeze. Cafés and restau­rants spill into the old streets and squares where peo­ple can sit and en­joy the fine views of the High Alps. Snow dis­ap­pears from the lower ranges and the slopes be­come a haven for flora and fauna with mar­mots, chamois and wild flow­ers thriv­ing here. The ski junkies may be long gone, but this landscape still pro­vides ad­ven­ture for rock climbers, moun­tain bik­ers and paraglid­ers. cha­monix.com
