Benoit and Corrine were the most amazing hosts. They are always making sure their guests are happy and satisfied. The house is lovely. I recommend the top floor balcony room. The views of sunrise and sunset along the Alps Maritimes and the Côte D"azur are awe inspiring. (more)Arlene Fleischmann
Awesome experience and as a solo traveller I felt very looked after and included. (more)Helen Barker
The entire week at St. Jeannet was memorable! Loved each of Benoit's daily activities including his informative, detailed, and interesting commentaries! ... The area, the people, the beauty, the food, the relaxing pace (activities did not start before 10 AM... no jumping out of bed and rushing to catch a bus!)... (more)Catherine Burns

From
£695
excluding flights
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
The views from the walks was the highlight. (more)Geoff Wright
In one word 'excellent'. (more)Julie Whyte
Mercantour family walking holiday, France
From
€550
excluding flights
Our children would say Kaia, our donkey who they bonded with was the most memorable. For me, the emptiness and the views. Possibly my favourite spot of all was the Chappelle St-Barnabe near Val Pelens where we whiled away a couple of hours in glorious sunshine with spectacular views. (more)Rob Booth
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
Snowshoeing in the French Alps
From
€1,153
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

Burgundy self guided cycling tours, France
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling at our own pace through stunning, varied countryside and finding places that we would have missed in a car. Tips? Be prepared for more than just undulating vineyards - there are some hills and you should have a decent level of fitness. (However, we managed and are in our more senior years!) The hire bikes were excellent, sturdy machines and there was technical back-up if required. (Luckily not needed! ) Local benefits? Staying at comfortable,... (more)Neil Crawley

Provence cycling tour, France
From
€1,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling up Mont Ventoux. Wow! Its tough, very tough, but worth the effort. Particularly nice to have a really fabulous hotel at the bottom to relax afterwards. Tips? Do try to make the initial meeting with the local rep. We didn't and there were a few issues - for example some of our dinner arrangements - that it would have been better to iron out before they became issues. We were a bit disappointed that we weren't warned in advance that the meeting with the local... (more)Jane Frank

The activities were all superbly planned, organised and great fun. White water rafting was enjoyed by all of the family, the scenic mountain walk was enhanced by local species being pointed out for us and information on how the various rock formations occurred. (more)Mary Fretwell
I particularly loved our mountain walk, with spectacular views and carpets of Pyrenean irises, and I think one of the highlights for all of us was swimming in a beautiful mountain lake. (more)Trisha Cochrane
Self guided walking holiday in France
From
£962
excluding flights
Truly great value and the fact that most of the guests had been before and one set I think 12 times makes its own point. (more)David Edmonds
The beautiful countryside, great food, wine and company. Our hosts Carolyn and Peter were great fun, interesting conversationalists and they run a lovely home. I walked my legs off and swam in the pool every day. (more)Mairead Ryan
The most memorable part was the hospitality of the hosts. (more)Elaine Overnell

From
€700
per week
Memorable parts? The view, the peace. Our hosts Will and Bea who are so helpful and informative and we mustn't forget the two dogs, Joey and Basho who were great company. Tips? If you are looking for noise and nightlife this is not for you. This is a place of beauty, tranquility and nature ( the butterflies were amazing and the cigales in full swing). There are a number of stairs from the car parking area to the place so if you have a severe mobility problem you may find it a little... (more)Christine Pavey

Highlights of Provence walking holiday, France
From
£1,329
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The Verdon gorges. Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Tips? You have to be able to walk around 15 km a day, and climb up to 500 m a day. Note that the trip notes do not include getting to the starts of the walks. Some of the descents are a little slippy, because of loose stones. You need to be able to carry around 2 litres of water (it gets hot), and you have to buy your own food in the mornings, for picnic lunches. Local benefits? Yes, the guide is local, as are... (more)David Appleton
France gite accommodation, Mercantour, sleeps 6
From
£420
per accommodation per week
We loved the stunning location and tranquillity of the area. Although the roads were a bit "white knuckle" at times the rewards of the views dotted with towns hanging from the cliff sides were amazing. A real treat for any photographer. Providing access to Nice, just over an hour away or heading further into the mountains the location provides the option of dipping into nature or culture. (more)Karen Mckiernan
It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell

The boys loved cayonning - jumping off of cayons into pools; I loved horse riding American style through the mountains - it was fantastic & Liz was a terrific guide. We also climbed up to some glacial lakes with Mel - which was an incredible experience. (more)Natalie Wiggins

From
€560
per cottage per week (sleeps 2-4)
Five stars for getting the right amount of things done & rest. The countryside is beautiful, the gite and courtyard were lovely, the hosts wonderful and the chateaux have to be seen at least once in a lifetime. (more)Ilinca Anghelescu
It was the perfect family holiday with a 15 month old. With 3 separate cottages all surrounding one courtyard, it provides the perfect place for a shared family holiday, but still giving you your own space to retreat to! (more)Becky Reid
Despite some inclement weather on a few days, it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We didn't want to leave. We would love to get back in the near future. (more)Valerie Guihen
