Eleven Experience is inviting thrill seekers to get their adrenaline fix at two secluded retreats in the mountain village of Le Miroir, France this summer
Tailor-made adventure specialists, Eleven Experience is offering families and groups of friends the ultimate private chalet experience this summer – and it’s perfect for anyone itching to get away post-lockdown and thoroughly out of their comfort zone.
Join them for a series of summer expeditions led by their team of superb guides in the voluptuous Savoie region. No ordinary holiday, Eleven’s Experience Managers help groups plan their dream itinerary, taking into account goals and comfort levels so that no two days are the same nor ever dull.
Set high up in the tiny historic mountain village of Le Miroir and off the beaten track, sister properties Chalet Hibou and Chalet Pelerin are dream bases.
Easily accessible from a range of transport hubs, the luxe chalets can be reached by train from Lyon or Bourg St Maurice, as well as by road for those looking to embark on an Alpine driving holiday.
The Savoie region in which both chalets are set, is the ultimate summer playground set in the French Alps. Bordering Switzerland to the north and Italy to the east, guests will have access to the most beautiful hikes and trails.
Experience the likes of biking and trekking as well as exploring on horseback to see the region’s centuries-old churches, waterfalls and sapphire blue lakes.
Led by Eleven’s team of expert guides who know every peak and trail, guests can experience the cycle routes made famous by the Tour de France and white water rafting down the Isère River.
Whether a beginner or expert climber, there is classic Alpine rock climbing to suit every ability, whilst new climbers can build confidence on the via ferrata, a route marked out by steel cable fixed to the rock face.
By day, further adventuring awaits – come sundown, guests can recharge in the freshwater pool, sip wine on the patio overlooking panoramic views, and let award-winning chefs introduce them to tempting regional specialities like tartiflette, paired with the finest French wines.
For something extra special, guests staying at either chalet have exclusive use of Eleven Experience’s private mountain outpost, L’Alpage. After a day out exploring, guests will hike for an hour up into the alpine forest to find the stylishly converted sheep herder’s hut.
Here, the Eleven team will create a unique evening celebration where dinners are cooked over an open fire and a feast of Savoyard specialties such as fondue and raclette are cooked by the chalet’s resident chef.
Sip on bespoke cocktails mixed up by a team of expert barmen – the ideal way to unwind after a day of taking on the mountains.
