It was the Fete de Villaroger on the 15th August and I was helping all day aon the Cake and Crepe stand. I must have cooked about 100 Crepes , I didn’t want to see another crepe or hotdog for days. There was dancing, donkey rides, trampolining, confetti fight, fishing, zip wires to keep everyone entertained. Afterwards there is always a Ball at the local hall.
Our Village did a float, as always. This year’s theme was 70’s Disco as we had all the outfits as our friend Fiona had an Abba party at the end of the season for her 40th. I think we shocked the villagers as we were quite bright and loud, a bit of a difference to the other floats. The weather was superb again and the day went very well.
The Trophee des Rouelles(Mountain Bike Race through the narrow streets of Ste Foy Village) was held this last weekend. The race actually goes through Le Monal Bar and competitors take part from all over the area. Jonny rode along with 4 guests who are here to Mountain Bike. They all did well, with Jonathan Booth and John Cook finishing 15th out of 36 teams. Well done boys.
The guests had a great day out yesterday mountain biking with a guide. They started from Val D’isere at the Bellevarde lift and rode to Val Claret Tignes, then, Tignes Le Lac, Les Brevierres, La Gurraz, Villaroger, down to Bourg St Maurice, up the Funichular, round to 1950, then back down Single Track from there into the Village and here to the back door of the chalet. AMAZING. Around 70kms in total, that is some ride.
Jonny the girls and I met up with Chris and Lesley who are on their holidays at the moment and had a perfect Sunday afternoon at Chez Marie Restaurant, Le Miroir, Ste Foy. Only 10 mins from us its one of our favourite restaurants especially in the Summer. Its got its own swimming pool, so after a beautiful lunch in the garden you can then go for a swim and relax. These pictures were taken there this weekend.
Only 9 days until the girls are back to school. Then we will be winding back up for the Winter. Bookings are coming in so please get in touch if you would like to come this next Season. Bye for now .
