Our Jubilee party went really well, and all our neighbours and French friends came…Yeah !!!! They brought champagne to toast the queen and they loved the Pimms which they had never tasted before. We had music set up by Andy and lots of people were up dancing. Someone said its the Folie Douce of Le Loissel ! We picked a great day as it was 28 degrees and the day after it rained.
Jonny’s training for the www.piste2plage.co.uk is in full swing and he’s now starting to tackle the Cols. He is still loving his bike and has cycled the Cormet de Roselend, Col de Tammie, Col de Petit St Bernard and Col de Fourclaz in the last couple of weeks. All the guys in this area have been getting together to train together so there is a great sense of comaraderie in the Valley. Here is a view from the top of the Col de Forclaz.
The Dauphine Tour passes through Annecy this weekend (main Tour before Tour de France) so we are caravanning again and hoping to see it pass through.
All this bike talk has got me going and ive just bought a second hand bike off Ebay. Jonny has fitted some Clip in pedals and im off. Really enjoying it , especially going around the Lac de Annecy (35Kms) , just right for me!!
We have ordered a new Hot Tub as unfortunately the pump broke last year and it was going to quite pricey to replace. So we’ve decided to replace it and hopefully that will be with us next week.
The flowers are all out in the meadows and Jonny is busy learing them for his reassesment for his Summer IML in August. Lots of walking to be done at the minute, the mountains look gorgeous with all the snow on them.
Lifts are due to open beginning of July for Mountain biking/ Walking Holidays and the open air pool in Bourg St Maurice will be open the last week in June.
We have had work done in the Village to improve the drainage so thats good news for us all.
The girls are fine, enjoing school. Fi has started her riding lessons again and Anneha is still doing karate. She has a Demonstration show next weekend. Also her German penfriend Vera is arriving next Monday to spend the week with us. They have lots of activities through school organised, one of which is staying overnight in a mountain Refuge. Jonny is going along too to help on the trip. They are enjoying our caravan and love the lake especially as Fi has learnt to dive now.
Our Summer chalet still has some availability so please get in touch if you fancy coming out.
Winter bookings have started, all prices held as of last year until 1st August 2012.
