23rd October 2010

The weather has changed in the last few weeks, its still bright and sunny but the evenings are alot cooler. Infact on 21st Oct we had the first snow in the Village. It didn’t stay for long as the ground is warm but that is an early start compared to previous years.

I was lucky enough to get a short break away with www.frenchridingholidays.com at the beginning of the Month. it was my first visit and I went on my own but had a fabulous time. The Riding, company and area were perfect and I felt very comfortable even though I was on my own. If anyone is into riding I would highly recommend a holiday with them. Its based on a similar way to the way we run the chalet , you ride all day and then they cook for you at lunchtime and evening, so very relaxing. The horses are all good, non were plodders as you might expect with a riding stables and the rides were superb, hardly ever seeing a car. I definitely want to go back.

Here are a couple of pics from the trip.

     

 Its been Half term for the girls so we went back to see Family and Friends before the start of the season. It was Anneha’s birthday whilst we were there too. We managed to fit in a couple of curries, which is what we miss , and generally had a busy time. Sorry to anyone we didn’t manage to see, we just ran out of time.

 

 Villaroger now has another snow cannon on its blue run down to the Village. Infact its right under the lift , before you do the final piste down to the first lift, which is where it needed to be. This should ensure skiing to the end of the season now without having to download. The developement has had the go ahead in Villaroger so in 2 years time we will see some big changes. We are in two minds about this, yes great because it will mean more publicity about Villaroger, which will benefit us, but sad beacause we love how unspoilt the Village is, and sooo French and this may well change a bit in the years to come.

All our wood has been cut and got in from the forest.The girls have been helping stack it with us. We have put a door on the bathroom now in the double room for all those that know it. A bit of painting, new dining chairs and a few new furnishings means we are ready for the start in about 7 weeks time.

Bookings are going really well, thanks to everyone supporting us again this year, but we still have lots of availability so please get in touch.

Les Arcs opens 11th December this time, Tignes Glacier is open now and Val opens at the beginning of Dec.
