walking & adventure holidays
A selection of reviews from 2010 - 2011 raves to follow.....
We had great holiday and all went really well. Hope your arm is progressing as you would like! And that you have a good season from now on. Loved our stay with Luc and Christine - what lovely hosts and what a feast!
Liz & Rod Little – July 2010 – Parcs sans Frontières Horse Trek
...Thanks for all your help so far. It has been more than we expected.
Nick Haley & Diana de Bruin – August 2010 – Chez Christian
I have been thinking of you and Mel and waiting to get back into cyberspace to thank you for a wonderful week.
Paris was great – loved it. Fabulous apartment, far too much eating and drinking but, hey, you only live once. ...The Loire Valley was OK, but it had two hard acts to follow (you, Mel & Mercantour; and Paris) and it didn′t really rate. I was tempted to suggest to the people there who ran the tour to visit Le Grand Chalet to see how to do it properly...
Paula Deegan – May 2010 – Mercantour Reflections Guided Walking
We strongly recommend the Valle des Merveilles tour. Fascinating petroglyphs, beautiful wildflowers, plenty of sightings of ibex and chamois. Mel and Liz are full of information and good company. The Merveilles refuge is not too romantic – more like an army barracks – so be prepared for that, and for the enormous meals served at the Le Grand Chalet. In general, it′s a week very well spent.
Marty Eberhardt and Phil Hastings – July 2010 – Merveilles Valley
The pleasure to meet you and Mel was completely ours. We keep a beautiful memory of the Mercantour, its overwhelming mountains and beautiful walkings, Christians hospitality and the kindness of the people we've met. We are telling our family and our friends and collegues about all that and we hope once to return and see you again.
Tania Van Acker – July 2010 – Chez Christian
To stay somewhere where you see nothing but green - fabulous. We'll be back.

We had a really great time with you again.
Nat, Phil, Ben, Jack, Sam – August 2010 – Berthemont gîte
Thanks for all your walking advice. Great to not waste any time at all before getting out on the hill. Can you pencil us in for next August??
