Why here?

My son started French at school in August 03, so he wanted to go somewhere French speaking for the October holidays.

We had a night or two in Geneva, same in Lausanne, then rented a car and headed for the hills.

Alps out of season

I didn't realise how "out of season" October is. Lots of things closed.

We got a good ski chalet in Les Houches, and generally had a good time for 3/4 days.

Weather was good, and Junior did manage a few words in French.

Go back?

Yes, but either in summer or winter. Junior is going back to the Alps to try skiing at Easter 07 (Les Deux Alpes).
