Winter News 2017

Happy New Year to you all.... and thank you for your support during 2016

Our apologies for the long silence. In a gritty year, the thought of blethering on about holidays seemed rather trivial – we emerge in 2017 hoping that sanity will prevail.

Delighted to be able to continue to offer our guests quality time out – great walks, comfy accommodation and home cooked food – vegetarians et al very welcome.


Berthemont les Bains

Here in Berthemont we are finally "proud owners" of the new thermal baths complex – which will mean that guests can enjoy a bit of R&R with wonderful views at the end of the day on the hill.

In addition, the immense indoor canyonning/climbing wall/pool complex in Saint Martin Vésubie is now open.

In combination with the new zip wire in La Colmiane it is excellent to see that facilities, over and above the natural splendour of the Mercantour, are developing.

We've decided not to go mad with new products and places – so much to see in the Mercantour, Provence and Gran Paradiso already. We can also offer tailor made holidays, to allow you to share other local places within driving distance from this fabulous part of the world.

THE BAD NEWS.........

We have been obliged to increase our holiday prices this year but are very pleased to report that we still offer great value for money – and in particular, amazingly so, for the Gran Paradiso tour – (more of this later) with absolutely no compromise on quality!! Self Catering Accommodation prices unchanged!

AND THE GOOD.........

As a thanks to loyal customers – we are pleased to offer £50 off on our holiday packages for a returning holiday booker, plus another £50 off if you bring one or more new guests with you. Please see here for more detail.


We are closed for work in the house until the end of April, aside from having availability for a snow shoe week February 18. (February 11 full!). Alternatively, come and enjoy accommodation only – wolf, ski, walk.... and top or tail you break with the fun of the Riviera at the Nice Carnaval or the Menton Lemon Festival.

A shame that Anthony Peregrine has a fear of mountains, but here is his recent article about the Alpes-Maritimes

Gran Paradiso Italy

Opportunities remain for May to early October and, as requested, I would like to advise the Gran Paradiso "wait list" that we plan to run the trip from September 4 2017. 2016 was a hoot!!!

"A brief note to say thanks very much for an excellent trip. It was thoroughly enjoyable on all counts – the Three Musketeers – Gran Paradiso Trek, July 2016".

See you soon
