Catered chalets in the Alps are among a number of options for a budget-friendly summer holiday, presented by major British newspaper The Independent in an online feature earlier this month.

Writing in the travel section of the periodical’s website, The Independent’s dedicated team put together a list of options and alternatives for tourists seeking a different and more wallet-friendly type of summer holiday, away from the fly-and-flop tourist hubs. A stay in one of the many catered chalets available in the French or Swiss Alps is only one of the many options considered by the writing team.

Other offers mentioned by the article in this regard include a gastronomic tour of southern Sicily, an off-season holiday on a Thai island (during the Western winter), a nip down to Barcelona, a stay in Morocco or simply a relaxed countryside break near Worcester, which citizens from the British Isles will be able to enjoy without needing to leave their home nation.

The Alps have been achieving increasing popularity in recent years as an alternative to overcrowded, overpriced beach resorts. The idyllic vistas and the opportunity to engage in a variety of sports and nature walks have been turning more active-minded holidaymakers, as well as those wanting to escape the bustle of popular resorts, to this location. The variety of catered chalets on offer, which straddle the line between rustic and luxury, are another of the Alps’ strongest arguments when it comes to marketing itself as a potential summer destination. The travel writing staff at The Independent will no doubt have seen that, and taken it into account when including the region in this list of appetizing alternative summer breaks.

The Independent is one of the most widely known and distributed papers in the United Kingdom, a success which is also mirrored by its Irish edition.
