The Alps is an incredible place to spend your summer holiday. The jaw dropping views, the crisp mountain air and of course the warm temperatures. After a gruelling hike atop craggy peaks or a leg burning cycle up the many cols, there is something very welcoming about staying in a luxury summer chalet with outdoor swimming pool. The perfect place to cool off and enjoy a well deserved chilled beer. Here are our picks of the best summer chalets with swimming pools for you to enjoy in the summer months.
Chalet Dalmore is a fantastic luxury summer chalet in Chamonix and features its own private outdoor swimming pool, a rarity for a property in the Alps as the majority of chalets have indoor pools to best be able to deal with the inclement weather.

Chalet Amazon Creek is nestled in Les Bossons, a small exclusive hamlet just outside of Chamonix. Again this is a luxury summer chalet with an outdoor pool in Chamonix, one of only a few.

The pool starts outside then goes through the middle of the chalet and out the other side again. You get the best of both worlds.
