What's it all about?

Winter activity holiday in France for families and friends....

One size doesn’t fit all! Our new winter activity holidays in France allow our guests to decide the who/what/when for their activity holidays as well as the maximum flexibility on transport and catering.

Choose to book your activities in advance, be picked up from Nice airport, be fully catered for here in Berthemont, and escorted to every adventure .....or .....

Grab a hire car, self cater and decide what you want to do when you get here!!!

Our rental accommodation comprises two gites which may be hired together. The accommodation is clean, cosy and good value for money.

Nice is not a ski destination so flights usually remain reasonable. There’s plenty to do in and around the Vésubie valley, but strong skiers might wish to head off to Auron or Isola 2000 for some more advanced skiing.
