A breather

Ski Happy

I'm not much of a skier. I've only ever skied in Australia. So to be here in the French Alps is a really amazing experience.

Les Carroz

It was quite incredible to take the gondola to the slopes above the village we are staying in.  To look around and take in the astounding views.  We have skied for about 6 hours today in the most perfect sunny conditions and I am happy and exhausted.

Les Servages d'Armelle

Our hotel is in the village of Les Carroz.  Will found the accommodation on Mr and Mrs Smith.  It's a beautiful challet at the top of the village - just where the ski run comes into town.

We came off the slopes at about 4 and are now enjoying a few quiet hours before dinner.  I think the thing I appreciate most about holidaying as a couple is the time off at what is normally the busiest time of the day with the children.  It's an absolute luxury to lounge around, snooze, read, take a bath, chat or do nothing at all.

From where I sit

As I type I've just grabbed my camera and taken the above photo.  The room has the cutest little glass enclosed fireplace.  The door to the balcony is slightly ajar so we can hear all the skiers swooshing past on their way off the slopes.

Australian friends who are currently based in Florence have joined us here.  We skied with them today and they are joining us at our challet for dinner.  I'm glad I don't have to walk far to dinner because my tired legs are feeling the effects of an energetic day.  Best I take a bath.



It looks so beautiful Kristine!! Glad you are having a wonderful time just the two of you.Very special.

Ok so now I am off to click on that link ; )


Oh Kris, looks like heaven!! I will show James your photos tonight, he is the mad keen skier in our family and has managed to ski all around the world, but I think he needs to consider this place. The challet looks enchanting. Enjoy xx

I am burning up with envy... I cooked and cleaned one of those chalets for a season many years ago (nearby, at Morzine) Heaven to be there sans children and sans chalet job!
