15 Sep 15th Sept 2008
The Fete on 15th August was a great success. We made a float with a neighbour’s trailer and the theme was “Carnival du Venice”, so we all wore masks and the trailer became a gondola. We even had someone in the stripy shirt and hat and the long pole for steering. The gilrs loved it.
Afterwards, there was the customary confetti fight and the Ball down in the local hall. I was helping all day on the cake stand and would like to thank everyone for their cake donations. All monies go towards things like the firework displays and live nativity, vin chaud, etc at Xmas and NY, which is always the best display in this area.
It was Fi’s birthday in Aug so she had a little tea party with her friends. 5 yrs old now.
Iv’e enclosed a photo below of one of our guests Parapenting in Arc 1600 the other week Only 80 Euros for the ride which we think is a great price for the experience.The photo at the side is the Solliet Restaurant in Villaroger(the one half way down the Piste), obviously taken this Summer.
The girls are back to school , infact Fi has started at Villaroger school now with Anneha.She has settled in well and seems to be enjoying it.They have been told they must speak French to each other when at school , as they are the only 2 English girls there.
The weather has changed this week and the temperatures have dropped. We actually had snow down to 1800m over the weekend, which is pretty early really.
Les Arcs opens on 13th Dec 2008, although Val D’Isere and Tignes will be open the beginning of December. We are taking pre-xmas bookings up until 20th December so please give us a call.
THE VANOISE EXPRESS IS ON SCHEDULE TO RE- OPEN ON 20TH DECEMBER 2008 LINKING LES ARCS WITH LA PLAGNE AGAIN.
The season is creeping up on us fast and we are really looking forward to another great year with you. Thanks to everyone who has booked a return trip for this next season.I keep thinking back to” D Day ” in March last year when we had the best snow Jonny and I have ever skied in our lives. Lucky guests that week.
Will write again soon.
