A huge playground for all seasons
The Alps is a huge playground mostly used in the winter for skiing. Spring summer & fall offer quite a lot of pleasures as well. We will leave apart the rock and glacier climbing, but long mountain walks and fishing parties find there a wonderful setting.

This opportunity is for small groups of people lovers of hard mountain walks as much as fishing for small trout in torrents. It is also for a wild foray in isolated accomodation as you would sleep in mountain shelters with more or less no neighbour.
They are very nice houses however and we can organize delivery by next village's charcutiers and boulangers of as much good food and wine and Génépi, as you want. A nice creel of these trout can join fireplace and pan for the evening meal. Sometimes wild mushrooms also do. Other pleasures are a wonderful view including binocular observations of mountain fauna, and marvelously silent nights for a good rest after the trekkings.
