It was only ever going to be a hilarious week when this gang walked through the door. No tennis here, just food, wine and a bit of skiing … with Jon (aka The Googlemaster) verifying the facts of every conversation!

When you arrive at the chalet to make breakfast in the morning and hear your (Welsh) guests singing, you know you’re in for a good day! Those voices … just superb. And as for that brute ofa rabbit… well that’s astory for another day. We loved these guys .. the happiest guests we’ve had in ages.

Everyone on the slopes beware … they’re on the loose! Small but perfectly capable of creating plenty of nonsense … and fun.

The skiing was amazing … all the latest equipment for a day’s fun on the slopes. But it was the kiddie’s toboggans which really excited this gang. Take one afternoon, three toboggans, two snow shovels, a few engineers and heaps of snow and you have one of the best half-pipe toboggan runs Nancroix has ever seen! Pity we didn’t get a photo of it, but take it from us … it was BIG fun. All fuelled by cake … LOTS of cake. A fun week.

All the way from the Dorset Coast to mountains of Peisey Nancroix! And they brought Barry Manilow along for the ride. What a great bunch of friends. Lots of laughs this week … and almost everything was just so LUSH! Every time we hear Barry Manilow we’ll think of you guys!!
