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

Plenty to do with walks up and around the local peaks. Cycles available if you are up to it. I can recommend hiring an electric bike to assist with the uphills if you are not quite Froome standard, they really make a difference and you get to see the magnificent scenery. We spent 2 days down at Lake Annecy, hired a boat and in Sept is beautifully warm and clear to swim in. The Visitors Book is full of ideas and trips that others have made and you can spend time following up on adventure trails or just discovering local restaurants they have listed. The best bit is sitting out on the balcony in the evening with chees, bread and wine and watch 'Booby Mountain' as the sun sets...very relaxing. Thank you Paul and Wendy you have a beautiful home from home, very welcoming and easy to relax into.

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.
