1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

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.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring telescopic walking sticks. The others in the group looked sceptical when I brought them along but they really helped going up and down hill on every walk. Bring easy dry trousers but especially ones were you can unzip the bottom legs. This was ideal for when the bugs got too much. If you are travelling solo plan the rest day carefully. I found it a little bit of a downer as I was on my own all day and night as the rest of the group had left. A thermos came in useful as I like a hot drink mid morning and afternoon. The chalet is wifi and I brought a small, simple laptop and got excellent internet and Skype so I felt in touch with home.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, the food was local. We drank at local huts. The employees lived in the community. The chalet was very environmentally aware and savings tips were pointed out.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent and I will now make sure I do this each year. I was nervous about travelling alone but felt really well looked after and made friends instantly as we were all engaged on the same activity.

review 11 Jun 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Being spoilt by the team in their fantastic chalet, with beautiful food and a superb mountain guide. The walks were magnificent and restoring. The other guests were great fun and it was wonderful to share their company.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I was not aware that the chalet also caters for families. The family sharing the week were great but check the booking situation if this is not your thing. There is so much to do around Samoens so you will not be bored!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The holiday directly benefited those in the area as we used local operators and businesses.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent!
