AN ABANDONED BARN TRANSFORMED INTO A STUNNING LUXURY MOUNTAIN LODGE
The cross country ski trails of Naves are situated on the sunny side of the Beaufortain and offer an amazing 43km of traditional and skating pistes over two plains.There are pistes and trails available for all levels including beginners to this fast growing sport.
Ski and boot hire is available in the village of Grands Naves and Nikki and Hugh can help organise all your equipment hire.
After a good work out on the cross country trails why not enjoy the benefits of the local thermal springs or ask Nikki to arrange a relaxing massage ensuring that you’re in good shape for the following days exertions!
