... Great value, lovely view of snow capped mountains, a simple large clean room with a modern bathroom and a friendly helpful host (with a cute French accent).

After 20 long hours on the bus we made it back to London on the Saturday afternoon, ready to start school on Monday :( best week ...
... our reward. The girls skied well with me trailing behind and taking one or two falls. The plan was to meet Ali, Julie and Andy at Le Chalet des Neiges, which we did but only after taking a wrong turn having navigated faultlessly all day. We had a late lunch outdoors in glorious sunshine and then had a gentle ski back with Ali. Andy and I did one last short run then headed back to the hotel. What a fantastic final day to end the ...
