    The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of vacation. (more)Alison Godfrey
    The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert

    The variety of the walks and scenery - and loads of wildlife. Marmot, chamois, vultures, various birds. Level of challenge was set just right for the needs of the group...Great - would do it again! Really good value for money. (more)Patricia Grey
    The most memorable part was exploring, mainly on foot, a 'new', relatively unknown but scenically stunning corner of France on the back of excellent, welcoming accommodation and hospitality. (more)Richard Gregory

    Mercantour hiking vacation in France
    From
    €545
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? A truly special experience in a little corner of the Mercantour where time seems to have stood still. We went with the flow of life at the pace of an ambling donkey. Every detail of the trip was well thought out, and the route guidance booklet (which we carried with us all the time) was spot on. The range of different landscapes we walked through surprised and delighted us. The effectiveness of the route marking was also great. The vacation providers team was hugely... (more)Carolyne Mason
    French Riviera vacation, with morning yoga
    From

    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? For me, staying at the hotel has re-written the rule book on the group activity vacation - something I have avoided up until now, as I have never wanted to spend 24/7 with a random group of people or be tied to a strict, laminated schedule. Everything about the week I spent in Saint-Jeannet surpassed my expectations. The accommodation was cosy and comfortable (and if you book a balcony room, I challenge anyone to find a better view!), the excursions were flexible, interesting... (more)Ali James

    It was all brilliant. The walks were amazing and all different. My favourite was the really long one but we were rewarded with the most amazing views of Mont Blanc. I loved learning about Alpine flowers. The food was fantastic. (more)Andrew Reid Wildman
    The most memorable part of the vacation was being spoilt by the team in their fantastic chalet, with beautiful food and a superb mountain guide. (more)Jennifer Curry
