We have evolved our business from providing summer and winter mountain activity holidays in catered chalets in Morzine, to offering attractive year-round destinations with exciting and unusual things to do and places to see.
After 20 years of building strong relationships with chalet owners, suppliers, hoteliers and ‘the locals’, we felt that we ready to offer our guests more. We always listen to what our guests say, so when we asked “what are you looking for in non-Alpine destinations and activities?” we were taken aback with the volume of replies.
Your replies have taken us to different places, in different countries, we have meet and made new friends who we feel we can trust to look after ‘you’ our guests in the same way we do in our chalets in Morzine.
Our first adventure was in the Alsace, were we found Glenn, an Englishman, who has spent the last 20 years leading bicycle and gastronomy tours along the Alsatian wine routes. Then we discovered a luxury, floating-hotel company who cruise the French canal systems, providing an amazing combination of exquisite food, wine and service which any top-class hotel would be proud to offer.
We have continued to explore other European countries such as Italy with its wonderful food, wine and culture, cruising Croatia’s Dalmation coast, looking for bears and whales on the west coast of Canada – which must be on everyone’s ‘Bucket List’.
In everything we evaluated and researched, we were ruled by a number of considerations: would our guests be comfortable; would they be looked after as they have come to expect from us; could we put our hands on our hearts and ‘guarantee’ a great experience; are our selected locals truly English-speaking; do they really know the area inside-out and back-to-front?
We visit every accommodation we recommend, experience every holiday and are driven by an over-riding desire to allow our guests to create their own adventures, make new friends, ‘re-discover’ our favourite destinations and bring home a wealth of joyful, lasting memories.
