    The most memorable part of the vacation were the people running the accommodation and the supporting crew who organised all the activities and ensured a comfortable stay. (more)Shalini Menon Venugopal
    If I were to pick one particular moment as most memorable it would have to be being in France, mingling with the locals at the neighborhood restaurant and watching France beat Belgium to make the World Cup finals. (more)Deborah Beane

    I do want to say that our stay in the chalet was absolutely 5 *****. We were cared for beautifully in a warm and friendly ambiance with delicious, generous and creative meals, including wine. There was plenty on offer at the chalet....tv, games, hot tub. Our guide, Bruno, was fantastic. (more)Denise Hellier

    We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day. We went rafting on the Giffre on our day off, which was also great. (more)Ross Carne

    Memorable parts? The entire trip was memorable however my favorite aspect to this trip was the people I met. I went on this trip alone however I met some very friendly people who were also staying at the house. And the day trips with Benoit and Corrine felt more like a friend showing me around the area rather than a small group tour, which is something I really loved! Tips? The weather was beautiful when I was there but bring layers because some of the day trips have you going to... (more)Divya Patel

    Such an unusual and great blend of yoga in the morning as the sun came up and fun circus skills, provided by fun, caring people. The community feel that the team creates is very special. Nothing is too much trouble. Our kids aged 10 and 12 had a ball and enjoyed mingling with the 35+ other kids form the UK. (more)Britta Bayman
    Fabulous!...We loved the location of Skiroc next to the beginners slopes and a short ride on the local train to a bigger area. Lovely people, ample and wholesome food and just a great weeks skiing. (more)Holly Whittle

    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

    The excursions which were well thought out and very informative. So much we wouldn't have known if it wasn't for Benoit. Corrines cookery lesson was amazing too and very relaxed. (more)Brenda Muir
    By the end of the week (helped by the glorious weather) I had laughed a lot, had some hugely interesting conversations, seen some beautiful places, learnt a lot of interesting facts, made some new friends, eaten some delicious food, tried lots of new things and completely relaxed. I practically cried when I had to leave, I'd loved it so much! (more)Ali James
