This holiday is based on a small, family run hotel in the village of Ar?ches (c.1000m above sea level). The hotel is situated right in the centre of the small village with a sunny terrace for a relaxing drink at the end of the day. Dinner is served in the dining room and you can enjoy the local Savoyard specialities. Breakfast is taken adjoining the bar where you can enjoy fresh croissants, bread and cereal if you wish.
Each day we will a walk taking in the variety and beauty of the area. Turquoise watered lakes reflect the hills with the snow and ice-capped mountains of the Mont Blanc Massif as a backdrop. There will be plenty of time to take photographs of the scenery and the abundant wild flowers. We will almost certainly both hear and see the delightful marmotte with its shrill warning whistle. We may also get to see the bouquetin (ibex) and if lucky, the more shy and elusive chamois. Stunning views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains are almost guaranteed!
