The benefits of a mountain holiday
You’ve succumbed to the mountains ! Health, being disconnected from city life and exercising activities are all good reasons why time spent in the mountains is time well spent .
Whether you stay at Ruisseau des Pyrénées or the Castel Criques de Porteils, both are quite close to the mountainous border of Spain, or Château de Rochetaillée which is situated at the foot of the Alpe Huez, you will find all the benefits of the wonderous beauty of the Alpine mountain range!
Experiencing a trip to the mountains is like taking in a huge breath of fresh air ! If our lungs are in seventh heaven just dreaming about inhaling pure air, then our whole body will benefit. As we spend time in mountain air we produce more red blood cells … the result of which is a boost to our health and general physical condition.
On a beautiful day the mountain air provides a dose of sunshine, an ideal remedy for absorbing vitamin D, plus a great moral booster !
