Wendy and Paul are perfect hosts and are always helpful with enquiries. We spent two weeks a couple of years ago in the summer when the sun shone every day. There is so much to do in the area for all ages. I loved walking in the area where the scenery is stunning. Swimming in lakes, cycling, glaziers, paragliding etc. We have just returned from a winter break Feb 2017 where all 7 of us skied. Paul and wendy were very helpful with arranging lessons and hire equipment. Les allons and margeriaz ski resorts were about half an hours drive from the chalet and were perfect for all levels of skiers. The slopes were quiet and we never had to queue for lifts. The price for hire and lift passes is much cheaper than the more popular French ski resorts. We would recommend Melanie who delivered our home cooked dinner on a few evenings. Really lovely food made to order and very good value. Hope to return to experience beautiful rural France.

For fanatical skiers this area is obviously not challenging enough; but for more recreational skiers it was perfect! Gentle slopes, very affordable rates, beautiful panorama's from the top of the chairlift over the Alps, and besides that also lots of winter walking possibilies: all in all we were very sorry we had to leave. After an active day outdoors it was lovely to come 'home' again in this house with its more Scandinavian than French ambiance. We hope to return in the nearby future, as there are so many more walking trails we'd like to explore. And because the scenery must be stunning in other seasons as well! We would like to thank Ian and Katie for the very pleasant and prompt contacts, and the good information they provided. Kind regards, Robin and Monique Bowman

It has everything needed for a comfortable stay and enjoyable holiday. We found it very well equipped, tidy and clean. We enjoyed meals out and cooking at home. The large windows make the house bright and also make the most of the stunning views. Arith is very quiet and peaceful. The loudest sounds are the cowbells and church bells. The village has a baker (check opening times/days in the shop window), and Le Pont nearby has greengrocers and small supermarkets. There are walks directly from the villa, although we stayed in July and often simply sat outside in the sun enjoying the alpine panorama. It is easy to reach several lakes and mountains by car in less than 30 minutes, and the local river and small lake at Lescheraine is also worth a visit. We look forward to returning to the villa one day.
