1st July 2012

We have had lots of visitors during the last month, Fletch and Daz came out to cycle the Cols here in the Haute Tarenataise. They cycled 6 Cols in 5 days, actually doing 2 one day. The weather was generally good and the boys loved it.

Cycling in the Haute Tarentaise is getting much more popular and there seems to be lots more  people out here attacking the likes of Col D’Iseran, Col de Madeleine , Cormet de Roselend and the Petit Col de Saint Bernard, or is it just we are noticing more as Jonny is getting into it re his Challenge? Haha.

His training is now including cycling the Col and then going down the other side and cycling back up, which is gruelling. He’s happy with where he is at and is putting in lots of effort. His new Marmite Top really suits him see below !!!!!!


If you would like to sponsor him for Help the Heros here is the link. Thankyou in advance.

The Tour de France passes around 35 minutes from the Chalet and  features Col de Madeleine this month and we will be going to watch and cheer on Bradley Wiggins!!!

We went horse riding in Sainte Foy the other day. There is a new stables that has opened up and Fi, Emma and I went on a ride. the scenery waas beautiful and riding up and down the pistes was really bizarre having normally skied them. Im hoping to go again with some friends for a ride to the Le Monal Village.

The new Hottub has arrived and we are really pleased with it. Its up and working and our guests love it.
