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

Number one has to be the 3 of us paragliding together with stunning scenery was number one Many close 2nds! - rafting, horse rising, via ferrata, mountain biking, swimming in lake - Amazing walks: view of Mon Blanc or "end of the world" valley

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

Budget for some activities it is definitely worth it. I allowed 150 per person which compared to trips with all inclusive costs I think compares well. I booked these in advance through the holiday provider which structured our week and made sure those activities that booked up early - Sam at the chalet was very helpful

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

good at recycling, supported local area

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

Excellent - stunning area, with lots to do (I was with my 18 and 13 year old and we did an activity or walk, bike hire each day and were "happy tired" at the end of each day!- such a friendly team - lovely to be cooked for great food; great advice; created a great atmosphere - met fun & similar people in the chalet and neighbouring chalet and shared stories, evenings and activities but still enough space

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

River-rafting.

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

It's more a location for walkers than for young families. If you arrive alone with a child you may not find other children there for them to play with.

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

Perhaps.

review 16 Aug 2015

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

the most memorable part of our holiday was the lovely team on site who took care of our every whim, they were so friendly and approachable and did whatever they could to ensure our time with them was memorable. The most exciting was going white water rafting, it was great fun and excilirating all at the same time.

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

Just to go with an open mind, push yourself out of your comfort zone and try some activities you maybe haven't before.

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

All the food cooked was locally sourced, we were asked to turn off lights, don't leave things charging when not necessary, the bed linen and towels were only cleaned once a week unless absolutely necessary...

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

10 out of 10...We had the best holiday we've ever had!

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

Beautiful location and views are heavenly!

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

The upstairs bedrooms are the ones to book as these come with the wonderful views. Food is absolutely fabulous, vegetarian, children's and special diets catered for and plenty of it, definitely recommend being catered. Staff really friendly, laid back but helpful.

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

Yes lots of recommended local places to hire from, local market to purchase amazing local produce, locals employed by Chalets too.

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

A really lovely family week in a beautiful unspoilt location, loads of outdoor activities to do for all the family but equally great to sit in the hot tub relaxing spending quality time with each other. One of the best family holiday weeks we've had.

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

Beautiful area and lots of helpful information from the staff of the chalet.

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

Bring extra money. All that is included is the meals and lodging. All activities besides hiking cost extra and they are expensive.

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

Yes, but did not feel that recycling was being done or local produce and other foods were being used.

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

Good.

review 7 Nov 2011

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

We will always remember how gracious our hosts were, the wonderful food, and the fun loving spirit of all the crew.

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

Go on the guided hikes. Sure you can read a map but you'll enjoy the trails more when accompanied by Bruno.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Maybe. Perhaps more effort could be put in to describing how the local community benefits. I think a lot of the produce was locally grown. We loved canyoning but were concerned about how our impact might affect stream quality. We assumed the adventure sports outfitters used were local folks but we don't know for sure.

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

Most excellent! I'd love to go back again perhaps in time to catch the spring wildflowers!
