The Mer de Glace in the French Alps

Mer de Glace seen on a French Alps walking holiday is one of the best hikes in the alps

We have been running walking holidays from Chalet Shiraz for the past seven years. I do not feel the need to practice too many new dishes. I can just concentrate on menu preparation. Mike can plan some great walking routes which will include the Mer de Glace.

So, now our UK breaks are done and dusted, it’s time to concentrate on the first of our European trips to Chamonix in the French Alps.

Buxton U3A in the French Alps

We have many returning guests coming to the French Alps and we shall also be welcoming the Buxton U3A group. They stayed with us several times when we ran the walking lodge in the Yorkshire Dales; they may be a bit surprised to compare Wharfdale with the Mer de Glace!

We have used Chalet Shiraz so many times before, and it’s in a lovely spot with magical views of Mont Blanc.

We are looking forward to showing our new guests this part of the French Alps. Our excitement is starting to build and we will both be glad to, hopefully, feel some warm sunshine on our backs.
