This time the experience was equally enjoyable. "La Bonne Vie" is the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful location. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Ian for a very efficient and helpful service. Kind Regards. The McLoughlin family.

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.
