The Southern French Alps are all about wilderness, awe inspiring mountains and deep blue skies.

This is true - but there's more ! Beside being one of the best preserved regions in Europe, the Southern French Alps have a lot to offer when it comes to culture and gastronomy. This all inclusive 7 day holiday will allow you to discover the beauty and the diversity of this region.

We will pick you up at the airport (Lyon or Marseilles) and drive you to your accommodation, a beautifully renovated traditional alpine farmhouse with comfortable bedrooms, an outdoor pool and a spa and lovely owners whose cuisine is one of the most inventive in the region.

During this week we will take you to some of the most iconic places in the region, such as the village of Prapic and the Valgaudemar valley. Thanks to a mix of great local restaurants serving the best alpine specialties and Jean and Meg's cuisine at the Grange, this week will also be a great trip for your palate. A wine tasting with a selection of wines from the best regions in France will top this up !

Last but not least, we do want you to experience great sensations and will have you discover some of the most exhilarating activities the mountains offer : climb up an impressive cliff with via ferrata, walk up to and spend a memorable night in a high altitude mountain refuge, and experience the ultimate thrill with a paragliding flight. The activities we offer in this holiday require an average level of fitness and are accessible for all levels of ability. No previous experience is required.

You will be chauffeured in a minibus and your guide will be able to answer all your questions and help you with any request you may have.

We will take you back to the airport at the end of your stay.
