What can we say but ” absolutely fantastic service, friendship and aaah the food – to fly for….
We came in the spring/Summer specifically for paragliding… yip no skiing for us – just big air, big mountains and as much flying days as we can muster the strength to fly. Boy did we rack up the air hours and get through a fair amount of post flying beers..
Jodi and Renato are an integral part of the success of the regular Blue Gravity’s French Alps tour.
This type of tour would be impossible with out their services and hub to operate from.
White Stripe as our base provided all the luxurious accommodation, developed our local trip itinerary and ensured weather wise we got to the flyable sites for all our paragliding pilots.
Their knowledge of the area and Renatos site knowledge for paragliding is excellent and managed to cater for our group of varying skill levels from those recently qualified to those highly experienced. By the way he does not fly to bad either…..many of us long time pilots had to work to keep up.
Many of the best international sites in the Alps are within easy driving distance and with Vallandry one of the best sites in France on their door step is a winner.
The flying site choices delivered flying that ensured every one arrived back at the lodge happy day after day. For non Flyers there is so much to do if you like hikes, biking etc.
So you can bring your wives and girlfriends with and still go and fly…..
South Africans are known for their eating capacity and their love for harty and wholesome cuisine. Well, we got that and much much more. Master Chef winners would be hard pressed to compare with the taste and diversity provided in our magnificent evening meals night after night by Jodi. Thank you.
The Lodge/ Chalet is situated in an area stunningly beautiful with much to do if you into all the mountain sports with kayaking and mountain biking exploding in the area.
If you fly paragliders, White Stripe should be first on your list of places to stay. You will not regret it.
