It's also really kind of you to take the time to share the specific things you enjoyed to help other people with their stay. We provide lots of information but other people's experiences are so helpful as well. Often we have jam packed holidays in Switzerland involving loads of activities, but this Easter we chose to have a more chilled time and just really enjoyed the views, the scenery, the lovely shops for tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the village, local walks and the wonderful facilities at La Soldanelle as well. It's just a great place to have time special time together. Thanks again for taking the time to write.
