    It was FABULOUS (more)Lesley Fowler
    The peaceful, unspoilt village with spectacular views. The friendliness and warmth of our hosts, their local knowledge and their pride in their local area. (more)Kay Boshier

    Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
    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 holiday. (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
    Snowshoeing in the French Alps
    From
    €1,151
    excluding flights
    The husky dog sledding, the ice climb, the snowshoeing itself, being out in such a beautiful environment! And our companions too - the other four people in the party were lovely, and we all got on very well together - enough in common to bond yet different enough for good conversation! (more)Angela Dennison
    In terms of the most exciting part, it has to be the ice climbing...not part of our original plans but I'm so glad it was suggested. Slow down and enjoy your stay in what really is an undiscovered part of the Alps. (more)Norma Sherratt
    Well organized, interesting, hassle free and great fun- the ideal introduction to the activities. (more)Matt Hannah

    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
    A fantastic holiday. The kids had a blast with all the other children and after-ski activities leaving the adults free to relax and chat in front of the fire. (more)Lorraine Yearron
    We all had a super time and really hope to be back next year! (more)Patience Scott-Brown
    French Riviera holiday, with morning yoga
    From
    €805
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? For me, staying at the hotel has re-written the rule book on the group activity holiday - 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

    Excellent, a unique place to spend a week or so, totally relaxing, lovely people. (more)Rupert Green
    Most memorable was the peace and tranquility, staying somewhere off grid. Different, enjoyable, relaxing, peaceful and fun. (more)Maria Masselis
    The whole holiday was a relaxed and stress free experience beginning with travelling from the UK by train to the lovely surroundings and cosy cabin... It was a wonderful relaxed holiday, lovely setting, very friendly and helpful owners. (more)Birgitte Bruun

    Marks out of 10 - 10! Really enjoyed the set up of the cabin, very thoughtfully done with lots of information, loads of smashing little touches (loved the walkie talkies!) & fresh baked muffins as a welcome did it for me. The location was exquisite. (more)Sally Cowburn

    Holiday was wonderful (more)Abigail Combes
    This was an outstanding opportunity to walk in an imposing place, and experience something completely different as a family. We were extremely well catered for in every way, from the expertise of our guide to the fantastic and plentiful food, and the location and quality of our accommodation. Not many holiday experiences could come close. Wonderful! (more)Sophie Tyrrell
    It was an extremely enjoyable week. Liz and Mel were great hosts - good company, and could not have been kinder or more happy to help. The accommodation is great, the food super and the location stunning. (more)Carole Thomas
