Summer News 2017

I am reminded of how many great people we have welcomed here in Berthemont over the last 13 years, thanks to a database tidy up! Merci mille fois to all for your enthusiasm and support!

If you need a last minute break to escape from the madness – we do have some accommodation availability* from June 24 to the middle of July. It's hot, dry and sunny here and the flora and fauna are magnificent.

Trumpet Gentians in the Mercantour National Park in South East France

The wonderful Mercantour National Park should be enough to satisfy the most demanding of visitors, and there is a new Gilletta book – "Botanical Walks" – 33 recommended walks taking in some of the 1300 plants described in the tome!

Rome February 2017

The good news continues in the shape of our favourite local refuge guardian, Hugo, having taken over the Merveilles valley refuge. With his charm, great food and service (and his cat of course!) the whole experience of one of the loveliest valleys imaginable takes a boost. Move quickly and enjoy either a week long holiday or a short break – during the first week in July or from August 22.


Understanding that holidays plus "experiences" are all the rage, why not combine some Nature time with.... – just a sneak preview – this is the French Riviera after all!!

Get yourselves out on Kevin's Boat – a super and great value day out nestling between the Lerins Islands!

If your needs are for more sedate transportation, note that there is now a new "pointu" FREE boat service across the port in Nice. CUTE!

Luc, Christine and Mel

A short season for us, as we continue to try to thrash this house into shape – never mind the land!!.....topped off brilliantly with a Gran Paradiso fortnight. ONE place remains.... – done the TMB and looking for a challenge? – look no further!!
