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.
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.
Yes, but either in summer or winter. Junior is going back to the Alps to try skiing at Easter 07 (Les Deux Alpes).
- Pros:scenery, food, wine
- Cons:none I remember
- In a nutshell:Like this part of France
Spectacular is the only way to describe it. Cable car takes you to viewing station at 3,000m +. Very close to Mont... more travel advice
